A game-changer in terms of how EE functions for a member based site. Happy clients means Happy Developer…so thank you! Excellent support as well!

This add-on is almost too good, to the point where it should be the standard way of dealing with members in EE. Nico’s support has been fantastic too. Highly recommended.

This add-on is an excellent way to handle all of your member registrations, entries, and templates. The included sample templates were so helpful, and the support is fantastic! I had a problem (it ended up being an EE bug), but EE Zoo helped me figure it out in two days time.

Dang, I’ve been doing this informally and never thought to formalize and productize. Great job implementing, they read my mind and gave me what I wanted.

Great module and really flexible. Also great support, i can recommend this if you want full control over your Member profile/template

The module works as it’s supposed to. Though I’m not quite sold on the idea of completely taking member management out of EE Member module into channel. There maybe more flexibility with the channel. The draw back maybe some workarounds of EE’s deeply integration of member module with others such as

I’ve had nothing but good experiences with EE plugin developers, but this one really stands out.  The plugin allowed me to create a complex structure I wouldn’t have imagined possible, and every time I had a question, it was answered with an exceptional level of expertise.  Highly recommended!

Developed by two guys who know EE inside and out and it shows.

Very intuitive to use and greatly simplifies and expands EE’s native member functionality.

This addon is completely mind blowing – the flexibility it gives you to do awesome stuff with your community is phenomenal.

This does for users what Cart Throb did for eCommerce, and then some.

This is the sort of add-on that should be rolled into the core, but then if you wanted to request new features they wouldn’t be turned around as fast as what EE Zoo can do. Top work boys, I’ll be using this on a lot more member orientated sites.
