Simplifying your website registration form will increase sign-up rates. Personalizing your user profiles will boost participation improve overall usability.
You can accomplish this and even more using one of the most powerful concepts available in our Community Builder toolchest that is the ability to display or hide things depending on specific conditions.
This concept is fully supported by the CB Conditional add-on that lets you:
- Show or hide fields or entire tabs based on another field value
- Enable or disable field options based on other fields
- All conditions can be applied separately to registration, profile viewing and profile editing processes
Our Joomlapolis video tutorials now have a CB Conditional playlist with the following 4 video tutorials:
- Getting started
- Two field conditioned by a third one
- Hiding field options
- Hiding Tabs
More videos are planned, but feel free to propose your video topic in our discussion thread.

Two new releases bring Activity Streaming to the next level !
An active website is your best tool - time to let everyone know!
Let the activity stream combo CB Activity 3.0 RC3 and CB Auto Actions 6.3 do this for you out of the box!
Just install and publish and all key community actions like profile updating, blogging, gallery uploads, user connections and even forum posting will magically appear in the activity streams!
But the fun doesn't stop here. You can tailor activity streams to your needs as everything is totally configurable.
And that's where the new CB 2.0 architecture shines: CB Auto Actions 6.3 links user-activities to streaming actions. And of course you can add your own actions to personalize your community activity streams!
To flexibly accomplish this out of the box, the new CB Auto Actions 6.3 release now has 46 built-in preconfigured system actions.
You can publish or unpublish these default system actions to configure the best activity streaming content for your usage. You can also clone and tweak to get things just right for your website.
Join the discussion to see the list of preconfigured auto actions and the available CB Activity features.

CBSubs GPL Paid Subscriptions 4.0 is here and fully CB 2.0.9+ compatible!
It is available for download by all paid-up members.
All features and functionality are now being powered by the new CB 2.0 library and AHAWOW framework and we have fixed 80 bugs since the RC2 release (see discussion thread for full list)!
The CBSubs manual has also been updated and is available for download and a new CBSubs English plugin is also available for download (if you need to make language changes).
CBSubs GPL 4.0 requires CB 2.0.9+ and all CBSubs GPL 4.0 RC1 and RC2 users should upgrade to the stable release.
The upgrade process is a simple install over (take full backup first) of all needed elements. All your configuration settings are kept.
Now that CBSubs 4.0 stable is finally here, we will be switching to fast track releases and nightly builds just like our CB 2.0+ process.
