CB Activity 3.0 RC1 Released

cbactivity30rc1 500

The new CB Activty 3.0 RC1 (stable for live sites) is available for download
by all Professional members.

Let your users go wild and post their feeling-rich status messages and comments using the pixel-perfect fully responsive redesigned interface. This will certainly add an extra wow to your website!

The main features of CB Activity 3.0 RC1 include:

  • "What's on your mind?" posting
  • Commenting everywhere
  • Inline #hashtag support
  • Inline emotions support (e.g., :smile:)
  • Inline @username and @name type mentions
  • Activity URLs automatically converted to clickable links
  • 10 built-in Actions (Feeling, Watching, Reading, ...) and you can add your own!
  • 62 built-in Emotions (smile, laughing, blush, ...) and you can add your own!
  • Configurable limits everywhere (number of chars per post, comment, ...)

Every profile gets it's own Activity tab, but you can also create Joomla menu items to your activity streams and there is also a Joomla module you can use.

It is dead simple to install and publish and works great out of the box.

You can of course make configuration changes to satisfy your specific use case.

Take a quick look at our CB Activity tutorials to get the hang of things.

CB Activity 3.0 RC1 is given it's release candidate status mainly because we have a number of extra features planned and did not want to push everything out in a big bang fashion.

The roadmap is as follows:

  • CB Activity 3.0.0 RC2 with new attachments, location and people tagging features
    and any identified bug fixes found in RC1
  • CB Activity 3.0.0 RC3 with activity hiding for specific types and from specific users
    and bug fixes
  • CB Activity 3.0.0 stable with any RC3 needed bug fixes
  • New releases of other add-ons to take advantage of the new activity API

So in other words, this is a quality release that can be installed on your live sites. It's just not as feature rich as we have planned and thus it is given the RC label.

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!
