CB Primer Book designed to help you learn

CB 2.0 Primer Book

The new Community Builder 2.0 Primer Book is here and now free for everyone to download.

This new resource is designed to be both educational and fun to follow. Rather than creating a reference guide or user manual that replicates built-in help screens and tooltip messages, the CB Primer takes a different approach.

It motivates you and gives you examples that trigger your imagination and spark your internal learning process.

This fun to read book is an excellent companion to the 50+ video tutorials on our Joomlapolis Youtube channel.

What’s in this book?

This book introduces some of the main features of Community Builder, the social networking platform for Joomla.

The layout of this book is somewhat unconventional as it follows a quick-start approach showing you things you can do out-of-the-box with little or no extra configuration and then gradually introduces extra configuration possibilities as they are needed. Sometimes the images included to help explain one topic also introduce elements and features that will make the reader think and understand future possibilities. This approach hopefully makes reading more enjoyable and easier to follow.

  • Expectations, installation and first steps ( Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 )
  • Working with fields and a closer look at image fields ( Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 )
  • Creating user lists and searching for users ( Chapter 5 )
  • Working with tabs, display types and profile positions ( Chapter 6 )
  • Exploring operations with user management ( Chapter 7 )
  • Plugin concepts and built-in apps ( Chapter 8 )
  • Configuring and exploring user connections ( Chapter 9 )
  • Language translation concepts ( Chapter 10 )
  • More configurations and implication tips ( Chapter 11 )
  • Conclusions and more resources ( Chapter 12 and Appendix A )

Download your copy and let the fun learning begin!

CBSubs GPL 4.0 RC2 addresses 34 identified issues (detailed list in discussion thread) and also has 5 new features since the RC1 release:

  • Geographic IP support to identify buyer's country and use it as invoice default (also stored in order basked for EU-VAT compliance)
  • Promotion names no longer need to be unique
  • Different bonus times now supported for reactivation of calendar based subscriptions
  • Improved denied usage messages for expired promotions

Do more with Joomla 3.4 and Community Builder 2.0.7

Joomla 3.4 released

Joomla 3.4 and Community Builder 2.0.7 are ready to help you
do more with your websites.

The Joomla 3.4 release introduces the following key new features:

  • easier front end editing for your modules
  • a lighter distribution with the decoupling of weblinks
  • composer integration to help developers be more productive
  • improved spam protection with Google new reCaptcha (already supported in CB AntiSpam)
  • security improvements by implementing UploadShield code which can detect most malicious uploads by examining their filenames and file contents.

Joomla 3.4 is a minor version that preserves compatibility and should in most cases be a simple and easy upgrade.

To upgrade from Joomla 2.5/3.3 to Joomla 3.4 you can use the built-in Joomla update functionality but first make sure that all your installed extensions and templates are compatible. If you are updating form Joomla 2.5 then our Migrating from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3 tutorial is a great resource for your upgrade project. Updating from Joomla 3.3 to 3.4 is simple and easy - just like upgrading from any Joomla 3.3.x release to 3.3.x+1. As always, start the process by taking a - just-in-case - full backup

Community Builder 2.0.7 addresses 6 minor identified bugs (see discusson on forum for details), of which one fixes the installation of CB as an upgrade on the new Joomla 3.4 release, which introduced an additional check on the package.

To upgrade to CB 2.0.7 all you need to do is use the Joomla Extensions Update functionality or simply download the CB 2.0.7 package and install. You can do this before or after your Joomla 3.4 upgrade.
