    We should have searched some more before choosing to go with Cogzidel. This isn't to nit pick and point out there errors and faults in our project, but I would highly suggest looking some more for template design.

    They did a half-decent design for us, but at the price tag we paid to get it, it seemed more canned than anything. Instead of focusing on a CSS-based template, which SE4 was made to use, they modified the code base intensely. I'm no PHP developer, but under most circumstances, I can figure things out when it comes to modifying PHP myself, but these guys modified it beyond functioning properly. And since they didn't use proper design methods, I couldn't do a fresh install and pull the template from their code, since it was scattered in the root of my installation and in the layouts section of SE. No organization whatsoever!

    They sent me the finished product with no installation instructions, and following normal SE installation procedures didn't do anything. An email for assistance was ignored and never responded to, not even to this day, which was weeks ago. What I wouldn't give to get a refund!

    A word of advice; search some more before picking this development firm. They are friendly enough, but not as high-quality as would (should) be expected from the price tag. Wish the ability to read and write reviews were available when I was looking for a developer.
