CBSubs GPL 4.0.1 released

Written by Nick A.


CBSubs GPL Paid Subscriptions 4.0.1 is here and CB 2.0.10+ compatible!
It is available for download by all CBSubs/Dev subscribers.


As promised in our CBSubs GPL 4.0 release announcement we have now switched processes and provide continuous integration (nightly builds) and quick maintenance releases.

This is a maintenance release that fixes 11 bugs (see discussion thread for details) and also adds the following 3 features:

  • Better filtering with multi-select plan subscription selector in CB User Manager
  • Existing subscriptions no longer display initial plan duration and only show expiration date
  • More choices for plan durations

CBSubs GPL 4.0.1 requires CB 2.0.10+ (nightly build of CB is recommended) and the CBSubs GPL 4.0 manual is still valid.

The upgrade process is a simple install over (take full backup first) of all needed elements. All your configuration settings are kept.

Joomla 3.4.3 and CB 2.0.10 are great together

Written by Nick A.


Joomla 3.4.3 was released last week and we have been testing it with our internal build of the just released Community Builder 2.0.10 and ... they are great together!

Simply put, we recommend upgrading to these new releases.

The Joomla 3.4.3 announcement came only a few days after the project's 3.4.2 release quickly addressing some buggers that slipped through. Joomla community gets an A for addressing these issues.

During this process we have been fixing CB 2.0.9 issues and also verifying that everything still works great with the latest Joomla versions.

Community Builder 2.0.10 is available and it has 3 new features and it also fixes 16 bugs (see forum discussion for full changelog).

All CB 2.0+ websites should upgrade to latest CB 2.0.10. Such an upgrade is a simple install over (precautionary backup always recommended) as all previous settings are kept.

CB 1.9.1 websites should also upgrade to CB 2.0.10 following the process described in video #30 of our CB 2.0 video tutorial series.

The CB Primer Book has also been updated as well as the CB 2.0 Add-on compatibility chart.

4 New CB Conditional Tutorial Videos

Written by Nick A.

cbconditionalvideos 400

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:

  1. Getting started
  2. Two field conditioned by a third one
  3. Hiding field options
  4. Hiding Tabs

More videos are planned, but feel free to propose your video topic in our discussion thread.
