    tried phpfox for a month... the scripts not well written and the "phpfox" is written everywhere. I am now happy with what i am using now. its clean, loads fast, and third party api integration capable in the coming days.

    what's wrong with Dolphin? I was about to use it to create a couple sites. How much exactly is the logo removal? I didnt even know there was such a cost.

    the more I read about community scripts the more my head hurts. So it seems that not 1 provides the solution everyone is looking for..

    back to the drawing board..

    I looked at ablespace but they lack a few things I am looking for in a script, 1 being the all important function to allow users to at least change their css and bg pics. As stated before, any script that doesn't allow a user to customize their page isn't going to bother sticking around

    Don't bother with ablespace. Accept the fact that all of them come with serious flaws and almost anything that states "Facebook Clone" in these forums is guaranteed to give you a migraine.

    wow. i cant believe what I jsut read.. Clenard and Codemonster....
    I had the same exact experiance with Ankur..
    I bought the script... asked him to fix some things and then well he never did.. so i asked and asked.. oh yeah and the music and video part where if you delete a song or video... well yeah they still stay on the server. he never did get around to fixing that....

    but anyway... after him not being able to fix my problems.,,,, he got mad as im sure you have already read our discussions and ehard the audio... and called me a thief and a pirate.. said i dont own his software.. and he even had my site shut down twice.. ANkur sent a letter claiming that he was an attorney to my hosting company telling them that I was in violation of copyright infringement and that I never bought his script..

    and yes his support forum is shut down.. he only helps those who pay him more...for mods..

    he said he would offer a refund but i would never see one penny from him. He said he doesnt have the ability to send people money.. Now what kind of business is that? wow

    So I offered him to jsut purchase a copy of PHPFOX in exchange for his license and he wouldnt do that becuase I told him that PHPFOX is much better and at least people support it and there are alot of mods there for it..

    You see people.. there will NEVER be any mods for Buddyzone because he chases his customers away and no one stays around long enough to do anything with it..

    SO if the question is, does he really treat his customers like that ... YES... and he did admit to me that he despises Americans... he said that we think we are superior. i wanted to add that .. only so that people know what type of comapny they are dealing with


    I know he doesnt have the nerve to face me here or anywhere else as he did with Codemonster and Clenard.. he simply hides and ignores the rpoblems once he has your money... He is a thief. nothing more..

    wow... this thread is over a year old. I'm now checking out Dolphin, seems OK, could be a good candidate. Anyone else has different opinions on Dolphin - other than the license restriction?

    at this point I am going to have to save some extra money and have my own system created, might cost $2-3k but it will be well worth it since the offerings out there are sub standard in one way or another.

    I also tried out a lot of scripts ... dolphin , phpfox, phpizabi. I seriously cannot recommend any to anyone . Some hosted solutions like "Ning" are good but the are "hosted" and i just cant get myself to use them \.

    So end of the day having some free time i am building one on Drupal 5.0 . Might take some time but with something flexible and powerfull like drupal under it i would be able to customize it to any site i want. Also its GPL :) .

    Ablespace
    I bought this software a month ago, and after 1 day my site was up and running. First I thought about writing a site myself, but after a while I decided to buy a packadge, and I didn't regret it yet. I couldn't build it myself for this price, and I would probably still be coding for the next half year.;)

    Hi EJRaven,

    I read all your posts on the social networks from a year ago and respect your opinion. Do you still not like Dolphin or phpfox? DO you think dzoics handshake is the best? I was leaning towards Dolphin knowing about the license issues. 6.0 seems like it might be good.

    I value your opinion and would like to hear your thoughts on the current releases.

    Thanks,

    David

    what about EELG? Is it worth a try?

    Or should one start a network from the ground, and if so, witch are the right tools? I saw "Ray" in Boonex website and is it good?

    this quote is from Dmitry Rudakov of Abledating who writes up fake reviews of his crap software Abledating. Avoid Abledating at all costs as you will lose your money and report any good comments about this software as the reviewers are always Abledating writing up fake reviews, with very few postings and bad grammar.

    I've known about Elgg for a long time and always though they had a great script, although I never used it. Has anyone given them a try? Please give us a review.

    OMG, I haven't posted on this forum for over a year, I went to work for a local company making apartment websites and left the social networking field up until now.

    I don't know what to tell you, I was creating my own software product but it got too expensive and had to completely withdraw my business plan, although I will start looking for investors for what I already have coded which is about 40-50% of what I think most people are really looking for on a social networking script.

    Check out my latest Wordpress-IPB integration if you like, these two can create a semi-decent social network if you put a lot of effort into it, I'm liking IPB's profile system a lot and I'm basing most of my work, not on its layout but its functionality.

    Again, I'm bouncing back into this arena so expect to see good things in the near future.

    I will purchase or download the latest social network products and post an honest review of the current scripts so that we are more up to date.

    I have a lot of research to do.
