  • Default avatar
  • Karma/Points integration. Add or subtract points on every Cobalt action like add article, comment, edit article, bookmark,etc

I'm confused as to how this fits in with ES since the listed features isn't any different that what is already (or will be) provided by ES. Can anyone point out the advantage of using Cobalt?

I too have some hard time understanding the use of Cobalt, their demo website is not so easy to figure out neither. Is it really comparable to Zoo CCK ? Oh and if there are integration between ES and JReviews and Cobalt, there should be one for Zoo CCK :P

Yes Cobalt is compared to ZOO CCK. Only one note that ZOO was release 1.5 years later. So we look at it like Zoo is compared to Cobalt.

Cobalt can replace JReviews extension. Thus, having Cobalt -> ES integration you already have Review integration. Cobalt may Review core Joomla articles or other Cobalt articles.

Perhaps pictures, videos, blogs are already integrated into ES and use of Cobalt for that is senseless. But that is not all.

What if you have Job postal or Forum build with...

What if you have Job postal or Forum build with Cobalt and you want all created/bookmarked/watched/commented/... forum topics or CVs to be in user profile? What if you have training website with Tutorials, Lesson series, home works and you want user to see all this infor in single place - ES profile?

What if you have B2B website build With cobalt and you want ES profile to be like company homepage where all company products are listed?

I mean anything you build with Cobalt is integrated with ES. And with Cobalt you may build endless number of section that solves almost any task. here is where Cobalt used so far. Product catalogs, national Aircraft/Pilot licenses archive and management, Job portals, Travelers website with destinations and sightseeings, art galleries, online education and training websites, support desks with tickets, faq, knowledge base, announcements. Events calendars, online audio, Movies DB, and much much more. I am not mentioning galleries and video portals.

Cobalt may replace 80% of other extensions. And here is the things, you do not need to wait when other extension gets integrated with ES. You may start using Cobalt right away.
