Joomla 2.5.28 Released and what it means to you

25-farewell 500

The Joomla project has released Joomla 2.5.28 that has been tagged as the last release in the Joomla 2.5 series.

Officially, as of December 31, 2014, the Joomla 2.5 series will no longer be supported. This means that there are no new releases planned for Joomla 2.5, as the Joomla project is putting all its efforts in its Joomla 3.3 and upcoming 3.4 series.

We have tested Community Builder 2.0.4 and it works just fine with this new Joomla release.

There are no security related fixes in the Joomla 2.5.28 release, so there is no real rush to upgrade. However as this is the last of the Joomla 2.5 series you should start planning to upgrade your Joomla 2.5 websites to the even more secure, feature rich and mobile ready Joomla 3.3.6 environment. From January 1st Joomla 3.X will be the only security maintained release.

As developers of the most popular Joomla Social Networking extension, we are always here to help out our community. In addition to the Planning for Mini-Migration - Joomla 2.5 to 3.x Joomla resource,we have compiled a detailed how to upgrade guide that includes a video tutorial of the entire process of upgrading a Joomla 2.5.28 site with Community Builder 2.0 installed to Joomla 3.3.

Join the discussion.

Community Builder 2.0.4 is here and fixes 17 minor issues (detailed list in discussion thread) identified since the 2.0.3 release. CB 2.0.4 also introduces a minor new feature:

  • ability to set a 100% width for Terms and Conditions fields displaying in modal window mode

If you have not already seen our videos - Community Builder 2.0 Tutorials playlist, this is a great time to do so (and subscribe to channel so you don't miss future releases). There are 37!!! short and sweet hands-on videos to help you harness the power of the next generation community builder.

Upgrading from a CB 2.0+ environment is a simple install over process.

If you are upgrading from CB 1.9.1, you should take a look at video #30: CB 2.0 Tutorials - 30 - Upgrading from CB 1.9.1 to CB 2.0 - Expectations and first steps  and also keep in mind the following:

  • Unlike CB 1.9.1, CB 2.0+ is now a single installable Joomla package that automatically installs component, modules and plugins
  • Make sure your PHP upload_max_filesize parameter is set to at least 4M - see our Checking your PHP Settings tutorial for more info about this
  • Check our Add-ons Compatibility Status page before you start and have latest CB 2.0 add-ons handy so you can upgrade them after your CB 2.0.4 installation
  • Make sure that you have a full backup available before you upgrade
  • If possible test your upgrade process on a cloned environment before attempting to upgrade your live site

Controlling Privacy with CB Privacy 4.0

See the huge benefits of CB Privacy in action in
our short and sweet CB Privacy tutorials
--

CB Privacy 4.0 gives you full control to deploy your privacy strategy on your website for your user profiles and user lists.

Fully compatible with the Next Generation Community Builder 2.0, CB Privacy 4.0 is a powerful tool to manage the privacy of user profile content.

Here are 4 huge benefits that CB Privacy gives you:

  • Let your members decide who sees their profile data (specific fields or tabs, or even entire profile)
  • Setup private content field or tabs for users on their profiles by specifying "private" as the default privacy setting for this content
  • Empower your users to delete or disable their accounts and data from your website
  • Keep track, monitor and administer all your user privacy settings from backend administration page.

 Here is a short list of configurable features:

  • Turn on privacy for viewing or editing a field or tab basis
  • Enable privacy for entire profile view
  • Configure initial default privacy settings for each case
  • Let moderators control privacy settings from frontend
  • Force privacy control for specific field or tab to default value (instead of allowing user to select privacy level)
  • Configure settings to allow users to disable and/or delete themselves

This awesome add-on is demonstrated and explained in our short and sweet CB Privacy tutorials and is available to Advanced, Professional and Developer members.

We will be adding new video tutorials to our Community Builder 2.0 Tutorials playlist about these new features and how to use them (subscribe to channel so you don't miss them).

Repeating once again our upgrading from a CB 1.9.1 environment process for your consideration:

  • Unlike CB 1.9.1, CB 2.0+ is now a single installable Joomla package that automatically installs component, modules and plugins
  • Make sure your PHP upload_max_filesize parameter is set to at least 4M - see our Checking your PHP Settings tutorial for more info about this
  • Check our Add-ons Compatibility Status page before you start and have latest CB 2.0 add-ons handy so you can upgrade them after your CB 2.0.3 installation
