    Joomla 3.9 is here - the Privacy Tool Suite release!

     

    The Joomla project team has just released Joomla 3.9 that has over 250 improvements and the highly anticipated Privacy Tool Suite.

    The latest nightly build of Community Builder 2.2.1 and all Joomlapolis add-ons work just fine with Joomla 3.9 also when the Joomla privacy tool suite is enabled. You can see everything in action on our demo site.

  • Community Builder Private Messaging is here!

    Latest Community Builder build has Private Messaging!

     

    Community Builder has always relied on uddeIM for private messaging and it's built-in CB PMS plugin still supports integration with it.

    As mentioned in Kyle's blog, our PMS integration plugin now has an internal mode switch that will turn on the newly developed private messaging functionality now available in the latest Community Builder build and will be part of the soon to be released Community Builder 2.3.

    We have already installed our latest CB build on our demo site where you can see this new functionality at work.

    Here is a short list of available features:

    • Internal mode switch to move from uddeIM integration to the new internal mode private messaging
    • Migration of messages from uddeIM
    • System messages can be sent by moderators to all users
    • Messages can be deleted
    • Envelope icon on profile page with number of unread messages for quick viewing
    • Send a message to profile owner when visiting a user profile page
    • Quick select from connections to send a new message
    • Manage all messages (create, delete, edit, etc.) from Community Builder User Manager in administration area

    There are many more built-in features and of course the CB PMS plugin with uddeIM or internal mode will continue to work with other integrations (Kunena, GroupJive, etc.).

    And, as this is a new built-in Community Builder feature, it's available -- just like CB -- totally free!

  • CB Content module 3.0 released

    CB Content Module 3.0 is available for download by paid members

     

    CB Content module 3.0 has been released with a great new  timed content feature. Kyle has already blogged about this and in a nutshell this new feature lets you set a start and end date/time period and then specify what content is to appear before, during and after the specified period. CB substitutions can also be used for extra fine-tuning of your content.

    The specific use case shown in the screenshot above has been implemented on our demo site.

    If you have never explored the CB Content module, you should really take a closer look at it. It's basically a Joomla HTML module on stereoids!

    In addition to just displaying HTML powered content in a module position, the CB Content module also does the following:

    • Adds CSS code and URL specified CSS files to your page header
    • Adds Javascript code and URL specified Javascript files to your page header
    • Adds jQuery code and loads jQuery plugins to your page header

    In addition to the use case shown on our demo site, here is a cool tutorial that illustrates the power of the CB Content module!

     

     
  • Joomla 3.8.11 Bug Fixes release!

    Joomla 3.8.11 is here - a recommended bug fixes release!

     

    The Joomla project team has recently released versions 3.8.11 that fixes 37 bugs.

    Community Builder 2.2.1 (latest build) and all Joomlapolis add-ons work just fine with Joomla 3.8.11. You can see everything in action on our demo site.

    The Joomla 3.8.11 is a highly recommended upgrade for all Joomla 3.x series sites. As always, before any Joomla upgrade on your live website, take a backup just in case anything goes wrong.

    You can learn more about the fixed bugs by reading the Joomla 3.8.11 announcement.

     

     
  • CB Field Groups 1.0 released!

    CB Field Groups is here and it's a game changer

     

    CB Field Groups is a new CB plugin (included in Professional and Developer membership subscriptions) that adds a new Field Group field type to the CB Field Manager.

    With this new feature you can configure groupings of fields that can appear on user profiles and you can configure things so your users can dynamically repeat instances of each grouping. In the sample screenshot above, we have configured a Phone field group where users can populate as many (phone type, number) pairs as they want (configurable for each field).

    There are two built-in templates: default where each field in the group is displayed vertically or table where the group is displayed in a table like format (as in the screenshot).

    There will be a tutorial for this new add-on, but in the meantime here is a quick 1-2-3 steps process:

    1. Download, install and publish the new CB plugin (requires Community Builder 2.2.1 or better)
    2. Using the CB Field manager create new placeholder fields (e.g., dropdown field for phone type and text field for phone number)
    3. Again using the CB Field manager create a new Field Group field and in the field Parameters -> Display tab area select the fields you want to group (see step 2), the button label and the Group Limit (0 for no limit)

    You now have a new fields group that your users can populate and add rows to as needed (and configured in step 3 limit).

    You can actually see this exact use case in action on our demo site: tab CB Fields Group on the user profile and cb_fieldgroup in the CB Field Manager (to see the actual configuration).
