Blogging with Joomla can be very easy with EasyBlog – powerful commercial component without equal. Install like any other component for Joomla, easy integration with Community Builder, JomSocial and Kunena. Great capabilities, numerous features that can help you turn Joomla into multiple blogging platform. I personally don't think that there can be any comparison between other Joomla blog extensions.

EasyBlog is developed by StackIdeas, one of the most reputable Joomla developer companies which participate in almost every Joomla Expo and offer great support to Joomla community.
There are so many interesting features that probably I will need at least 2000 words to describe half of capabilities of Easy Blog; however here are some of the most significant one.

  • Multiple Blogs
  • Professional Themes
  • Simple Dashboard
  • Featured Blogs
  • Avatars
  • Social Integrations
  • Rating System
  • Spam Protection

Do you want to have your own Blogger, Type Pad, and Xanga? Multiple blogs and multi-user blogs are great option for you to develop that kind of bloggers community, on the other hand, guest blogging have never been so easy.

EasyBlog offer intuitive interface and you have several choices of WYSIWYG editor; as well several professionally build themes.
It is very easy to develop social network based on JomSocial or Community Builder and have full integration with EasyBlog. One of the options that I personally like is the choice of Avatars – you can use avatars from JomSocial, CB or Kunena.

SPAM, forget about it, easy set up of Akismet and Re-Captcha, but because EasyBlog do not leave any footprints, spammers can’t scrape your blog.
There are great numbers of modules which will help you to show blog on categories that you like and give some incentive to top contributing bloggers.
EasyBlog also comes with easy integration and syndication options to top social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.

Something that bloggers with AdSense account may like – option to set-up your own AdSense code on your articles – do you want to make money until you submit guest blog post – with EasyBlog you can.
Currently another great component is under beta testing stage – Komento which is powerful component for blogging again from StackIdeas, I believe this will make EasyBlog even more attractive platform.

EasyBlog comes in 3 versions – Community, Professional and Unlimited, I believe that the cost of this commercial component is not an issue, as this is definitely the best blogging platform for Joomla.
