    3. Random user mode added to CB Online module

    As always, you should first test on a cloned environment before upgrading your production site.

    We would like to give a special thanks to Mario Korth, working for Hackmanit GmbH, for his responsible report of the low-level security bug in the admin area, affecting CB 2.0 through 2.4.1. This is the first - be it low level - security bug identified in Community Builder in over 11 months and only second in over 11 years.

    A detailed changelog is available in the discussion thread.

  • CB Query 6.0 and CB Code 2.0 released with autocomplete feature

    CB Query Field 6.0 and CB Code Field 2.0 released!

     

    New releases are available for CB Query Field and CB Code Field add-ons with performance improvements and new exciting ajax powered autocomplete functionality.

    This new feature lets you provide a custom query or code that dynamically interfaces with user keystrokes to suggest completion values for any CB text field. Just imagine a user typing New in your state field and dynamically being proposed autocompletion values like New Jersey, New Mexico and New York!

    Important note if you were using the Update On functionality in a previous CB Code Field or CB Query Field version: Update On function is replaced in CB Code Field 2.0.0 and CB Query Field to 6.0.0 by a much stronger implementation in CB Core Fields Ajax. On upgrade of an existing CB Code Field to 2.0.0 or CB Query Field to 6.0.0, existing Update On usages will be safely migrated to CB Core Fields Ajax settings (even if it's not installed so you'll be ready to go). Simply make sure you have CB Core Fields Ajax installed if you were previously relying on the Update On usage.

    You can see both add-ons in action on our demo site and learn more about these new releases in Kyle's blog.

  • More about Joomla Privacy Suite and Community Builder

     

    With the release of Joomla 3.9 millions of Joomla powered websites finally had a solution to cope with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    The major feature of this Joomla release is the Privacy suite. In simple terms, the privacy suite features provide the following functionality:

    1. Getting user consent when your recording their data (new registrations, existing registartions and periodic consent renewal)
    2. Managing user requests to provide users with their data and/or remove their data from your website
    3. Logging user activities that result in more user data gathering on your website (with API for other Joomla extensions to push their related activities to the log)

    With the release of Community Builder 2.4, the CB registration process integrates with the Joomla user consent capturing process.

    The integration process is managed by publishing the params field (User Parameters) field to appear on the CB Registartion form (from the CB Field Manager). This simple move will reveal the Joomla privacy policy consent question on the CB Registration form.

    Managing user requests and viewing user activity logs are reached from Joomla privacy dashboard and CB website can use this functionality just fine - remember CB users are also Joomla users.

    Exporting CB related user data can be performed from the CB User Management administrative page utilizing the new CB 2.4 user import/export feature.

    Finally, the CB 2.4 terms and conditions fieldtype improvements now track user consent (the date user accepted) and you can also force users to accept terms and condition field before they can complete there login session to fully browse your site. In other words, you don't really need to use the Joomla privacy policy / concent process at all. It's your choice ;-) ! And there is an extra bonus if you use CB terms and conditions -- you can have more than one (actually unlimited) terms and conditions fields active at the same time -- all requiring acceptance before letting users continue.

    All of these features are built-in to our free Community Builder, but there are also several paid Add-ons that can help website administrators put in place even better GDPR processes and automations.

    We will be following up on this in a new article next week ... so stay tuned ;-)
