JBolo is a must have for every online community. We are using the component integrated with community builder without any problems.
Ease of use
More than easy to configure. All options are there for you to select during configuration.
After 2 years of using it, we had one issue after a joomla update. The support team rocks. The solution arrived the next day.
Not needed at all. The configuration interface leads you and does not allow you to make any mistakes.
Value for money
My site increased it's value with JBolo! Nothing else to say.
I used this to: A local online community with members handled by Community Builder.
We've tried to use this on our membership based site. The pop up window has had a bug for over 6 months whereby the search feature fails.
Ease of use
The basic functions were easy enough to configure in the backend. Frontend usability was not a straightforward
We reported a bug over 6 months ago and were promised a response. Our support ticket was then closed 2 times without any further response.
Value for money
If it had better support it would be worth it.

All I wanted

Posted on 24 June 2016
Works better as expected.
Ease of use
No need to set up anything, even my community members were able to use the jbolo chat immediately.
Value for money
I used this to: My Easysocial community.

outstanding component!

Posted on 25 March 2016
There's everything on, what you need!
Ease of use
Very clear dashboard. Even at the very 1st view I knew what to do next!
This is one of the very best support I ever experienced! Outstanding professional and so very friendly! I'm so glad to make that decision!
Cannot say, because I did not take a look at it, because it wasn't necesarry! But I give a score of 100, because these guys really deserve!!
Value for money
Every single penny!!!
I used this to: You can combine it very easily with jomsocial, CB or with easysocial, jomprofil and even with jomwall with only one single button click! Great component! I really love it!!!
The extension is easy and flexible for the users to use. Gives you a relevant usage info as admin. Best combo to JomSocial. Works perfect
Ease of use
Easy to install. Easy to manage as admin and very Easy and Fun to use for the user, since they can change theme. I love the extension.
My site is bilingual with a special template so I needed Support. Techjoomla are seriuos, quick and THE BEST. Second to None. I Love them!
Documentation is very good even the description are very good, telling you what you are buying before you buy.
Value for money
Stunning! You get much better product than you would expect and the support is better than anyone could expect.
I used this to: My bilingual site SE/EN. on a JomSocial platform with JSN Metro Template. When my site was only translated to Swedish everything worked right out of the box. The problem raised when I made my site bilingual. Techjoomla support was beyond fantastic. Best Ever!
Functionality of this product is supreme. It does exactly as you would expect it to, even in JS 4_RC_1 just need +1 feature for us so 95/100
Ease of use
Installs like any other extension and hey presto, it's there and working
Contacted support to ask if we could have viewing off all logs by administrator and the response was back within a couple of hours :)
Documentation is short, but that's all it needs to be. The product just works out of the box.
Value for money
This is one of the 1st packages we've paid for and I'm very pleased with our investment (6 month sub) which we will renew when it expires
I used this to: A Jomsocial website for children in education. The only thing missing for us is the ability to look at users chats (given our environment this feature is a must really), spoke with developer and they're looking at putting it in a future release for us. What brilliant support!!

Excellent component

Posted on 19 June 2014
This component is excellent and very relevant technical department. My problem was solved in the day

I recommend Jbolo and Techjoomla
I bought a lot of Techjoomla products and their products are really well done and support is THE BEST of all joomla extensions I've bought !!

Fast, professional and they don't hesitate to help you even there are conflicts other extensions not like others !!!
Hi have installed this working with jomsocial. It is super nice and one support issue which was my fault was treated immediateley.

Aboluteley recommend it - design is also great
This chat works like a dream in all browsers and my site members haven't reported any problems at all but have posted on the forums that they love it.

I run Buzz50 which is a site for seniors over 50 and have tried other similar one to one chats before. This is the best.

The support from the Techjoomla team is fantastic, as others have mentioned on here. Take a look at their 'About Us' page and you will see a photo of the real people who will help you :)
