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.
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.
Download your copy and let the fun learning begin!

The Joomla 3.4 release introduces the following key new features:
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.
