E107 was once great, easy to work with and had a good community. Now it's a JOKE!!!! All communications and support have been shut off. I do a search for help on E107, and ALL searches take me to the main page. No longer to the great forum and community that once was. OLD users are left high and dry. The remnants of a forum are left read-only, IF you can even find it. No other way to get support. I picture lemmings, falling off a cliff. I was one of them..... I wasted 10 years learning and using E107. Following it. Contributing. Now, all previous support, community, etc.. is GONE. RUN from this CMS and don't look back. Patterns are called patterns for a reason. It will happen again to this new version as long as it's run the same way as it always has been. E107 may look good up front, but the wizards behind the curtain are idiots. They've destroyed a community., removed support, and ignore any communication. RUN!!! There were signs, I just didn't want to see it. Great support was replaced by silence. Or Sarcastic help that drove users away in droves. More and more of the good moving on.... I should have seen it coming..... Look at the team size!!! Almost nothing now, where once it was full of smart, energetic and communicative programmers. I HATE I wasted so much learning this, only to be sent to a dead end. Seems they want to forget about the OLD versions and community and start fresh. Maybe let someone else do Support and just slowly make a new version. Yet they still look for donations, without supplying the long term help. I hate to watch this epic fail in progress. I wish I could buy this so-called "e107, Inc" and run it like a business SHOULD be run. But I am afraid it's too late. Time to move on. But it's so aggravating. In the RIGHT hands, this CMS HAD amazing potential. That's what hurts.
e107 is perhaps my favorite CMS. Incredibly easy to use, and so many features "out of the box" (you do not need to download/install modules or plugins for those features). But that's where e107 starts to stumble. There are shockingly few plugins, modules, themes out there. So if you're happy with what you get "out of the box" great, but if you want to customize and expand, it becomes difficult. I have no idea why it's not more popular or more people aren't developing plugins/themes for it.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Forget about Joomla, WordPress, Drupal and the rest. This is the mother of all CMSs. Easy just like a Mac. It installs like a charm. There is no learning curve of any sort, just a straight path to site creation. you will be up a running in 10 minutes. This script is mature and let me tell you, this is like a turnkey website, all you have to do is choose what goes on the page. $200 would have been a breeze to pay for such script. Go get it and make a donation FAST!
I had been looking for a good CMS for some time and was recommended e107 by a few friends. I had been using asp /ms access and wanted to change to php /mysql. I still use both but the e107 system was extremely easy to setup and I have had no problems installing. Plenty of themes to choose from and a great selection of plugins. So far all is working well with seriuosly - no glitches.
I've spent weeks playing with different portals, forums and php/mysql scripts, but this one is the absolute best I've found. It's really easy to set up (even as a subdirectory) and it's a ton of fun to play with. The features and plugins are easy install, too. Once installed, plan on spending a lot of time in your new playground, because there's a lot to it!
