Is Community Builder what I need?

5 years 1 month ago #234628 by Adapt∞Impact
I used CB on another site a long time ago to manage site users and it worked great. I have a much simpler application this time and I wonder if the community will give me some honest feedback.

In a nutshell, I need to produce a list of nonprofit organizations, categorize them by type and then make a directory that is searchable or that provides results from a menu based on the type.

There may be 20 types. The information we would include is pretty straightforward; contact, website, email, description.

So the question is, would you use CB for this or is there something simpler that would work as well? Any recommendations would be appreciated.

You could use the CB User List feature to list your organizations that are submitted as users in your system.

But your use case really calls for a Joomla directory extension - please search the JED for such extensions. MOSETREE or SOBI come tom mind.

Thank you for the reply. I used SOBI quite some time ago and will check it out again.
