I am currently evaluating Community Bubbles as a forum within our company. I was a little surprised to find out though that some of the basic functionality of the forum relies on a couple of other open source plugins. I'm not one for duplication, and don't like reinventing the wheel, however when a bug arises in one of those other plugins, what would you do? Does the Community Bubbles team also handle support for these plugins?
I'm talking specifically about CDESC-1 on the Descendent Notification Plugin. This plugin allows users to essentially "subscribe" to the forum, and be notified when changes occur. However, one big problem is that for some installations, users don't get notified when a new topic (page) is added. This is a huge pitfall, and is probably the only reason for us not buying Community Bubbles at this time.
Would this be something the Community Bubbles support team would champion to get fixed? If so, I don't see any hurdles in purchasing the software. But as long as the bug remains, it will be a hard sell within the company.
