We recently interviewed Karen Masullo, EVP Social Media and Kevin Struck, Information Technology & Development of Firestorm. And below are the discussions we had:

1. Have you used any Joomla extensions before EasyBlog?

Kevin: Yes, we have used Word Press for Joomla, and RSBlog.

Karen: We were using WordPress.

2. How did EasyBlog help you better manage your blogs compared to your previous Joomla extensions?

Kevin: We found it easy to integrate with our chosen template and it was easy to import our old Word Press posts into EasyBlog.

Karen: As the primary end-user of our blog, and during our recent transition to a new website, one of my biggest concerns was the import of content from our previous Wordpress blog. EasyBlog allowed this process to be a relatively seamless one. Additionally, we had struggled with Facebook plugins effecting performance on our last blog, but the built in social integrations with EasyBlog bring none of the performance issues. As an end-user, I find it to be exactly as named; “Easy”.

3. How did you get to know about our extensions and, why did you chose them for your site?

Kevin: Joomla Extension Directory. We chose EasyBlog based on reviews and testing we did and based on the reputation of EasyBlog and past experience with Stackideas and other components we have used.

Karen: Kevin switched us to Joomla. Based on his experiences with these tools, and the customer service he received from Stackideas, he made the switch to EasyBlog on our behalf.

4. What do you think about our support team?

Kevin: Support is Excellent. Second to none. Always receive responses to our questions and requests within a couple hours, which is important in a production environment.
