Functionality
The component is an "hybrid" it serves various purposes, the reason why I chose it
Ease of use
Easy for both administrators and users, the built-in (simple) composer lacks some option due to the hybrid nature of the component
Support
StackIdeas support is one of the best, there are very few around with this level of great support
Documentation
Well documented, some parts need updates
Value for money
More than just talking about money, the quality of their coding is top notch

Amazing bit of software!

Value for money
Tremendous value (as are all Stackideas products) for a small investment with the next major upgrade due to match EB5 and EasySocial 1.4
I used this to: My community website on Joomla 3.4.4. I only use the latest versions of what I consider to be quality extensions and EasyDiscuss is definitely in that category, working in perfect harmony out of the box with the other products on my website.

Just perfect



Posted on 11 October 2014
I use Easydiscuss for my website along with community builder ; the integration is perfect between the 2 extensions. Easydiscuss can be highly personalized to fit your needs (css + back office). Support was able to answer any of my questions even for template customization and code implementation. Special thanks to Arlex support ;)
Owner's reply: Hi Juan,

Thank you for the review. I'm pretty sure Arlex is pleased to know that your issues you encountered were resolved. Don't hesitate to send in a ticket to our helpdesk or forums whenever you required help from us. :)


The product speaks for itself; a solid, intuitive, aesthetically appealing platform for group discussions (and more).



What is often difficult to ascertain before purchase is the level of support you'll receive afterwards. Well... let me tell you, these guys and gals know their stuff and are lighting fast on replying to your queries.



When you ask a beginner question in most forums you'll get a snarky comment telling you to read this or that (which is usually best practice if you want to learn), but the StackIdeas team are patient and polite.
Owner's reply: Hi Philip,

Thank you for the review. I'm really glad that you're loving EasyDiscuss. It is our pleasure to assist you with the issues you encountered. Please don't hesitate to send in a ticket to our helpdesk or forums whenever you required help from us. :)
I was finding a right component for 4 months. And finaly, I have found one. Easy Discuss is full of options, therefore it is almost imposible that it does not suits to your needs. Their support team is extremely quick - in forums and in ticket system also. Just one small problem - there is lack of information in docs for this component. But! on the other side, when you write about your problem with settings, they answer almost immediately and give you sophysticated answer. Thumbs up and 5 stars are not enought!
