If I had to take a jab at this soft, it'd be complex admin panel, but with this amount of options I choose to ignore most of it and work with the stuff I need, which you learn after first few tries. These are all simple pieces of software in case you don't happen to have 0,000 to develop your own dating site.
I can say that Skadate is the most professional company in terms of support and the product is definitely the best among its class.
Why is the match age field there if it plays no role in matchmaking? Language packs offered by skadate are poorly translated. Their themes are stunning, especially Mosaic - love it to bits. I've read a lot of negative feedback about people saying that Ska Date is not helpful and that they charge expensive fees for support, that is simply NOT TRUE!
The quality of translation is similar to that of Google translate.4. I had to wait a few hours to get replies on my questions, but I got a friendly, helpful and professional answer every time! For 300 bucks (I got it during black friday), I got exactly what I wanted - a script that I can play around with and start a site.
I've started a site for my town and it keeps signing up users after some basic SEO.
Overall as a new Skadate customer, I have been extremely impressed and overall extremely satisfied with the support team that supports this system.
I tried nearly all products in this space for my dating app business. Try talking to support about these issues and they will promise to fix it in the next release, but the fix never happens.
Some people have been waiting for 3-4 years for things that a developer could patch in an hour. Right now the only messages that get sent out in the language of the user are the registration confirmation emails.
But yeah, they installed it for me and helped with some of the options.
) They say "Oh, the new forum will be up on Monday.
I highly doubt it, but even if it is, it's RIDICULOUS that they didn't leave it up for existing customers to access while they build a new one. I am using Skadate script for a rather specific niche where "dating" per say is actually more of an interest matchmaking process. Well I did expect this, thus got an Advanced solution with some free development hours to cover major modification of mine - connecting events to clubs.
I'm toward the tail-end of a site redesign, and there's a bug (there's LOTS of bugs! I have clubs who would like to find members and members looking for a club to join. Events feature was there by default ( another awesome thing is ability to use third party plugins).
) that is stopping me - yet their technical "support" isn't available until Monday - and they removed the one thing that has helped them - the community forums. Their database is SOO SLOW that you have to throw TONS of resources at it just to make it usable. It's not responsive, and they charge paying customers for the app (which is awful to start with), then they charge for "customization" which is worse than the base application! Just needed some adjustments to get a more flowless process for my niche. A word of advice - talk to Natalie and confirm all modifications details beforehand.
