Community Builder is simply the very best thing ever created. I am becoming a subscriber to download the additional plugins they have. I recommend the cb system for all. This is much better than. other(s).


First time user developing a family web site. Perfect component running smoothly. Thanks for the hard work.


Incredible Component - Great Development Team! Community Builder and the team are a true Open Source GPL group. They offer commercial extensions (CBSubs) but the core component Community Builder is still FREE to download, use and modify and it works and works well with an array of features and customization that is remarkable.
