  • New downloads manager: CB Package Builder 5.1 with frontend management


    CB Package Builder with frontend management

    This is by far the best download manager for Joomla!

    We have developed and used CB Package Builder internally since 3 years for your packages downloads here on Joomlapolis. We are now using it for all your downloads, including all PDF files, showing latest version numbers in Joomla content and showing releases history. As it has become an awesome general-purpose downloads manager, we are now releasing it in its latest version 5.1.

    CB Package builder has many features that you can discover in its product page.

    Version 5.1 has many awesome new features that let you create and manage your membership downloads.

    Here is a list of key features that you can actually experience - first hand - on Joomlapols and our demo site:

    • Chose from 12 package types to fine-tune your user's download experience (Package, Library, Component, Plugin, Module. Language, Template, CB Plugin, Query, Script, Override, Custom).
    • Use optional package sub-types to categorize packages when presented to users (e.g., see Free sub-types on our download page).
    • Configure package version extraction directly from package filename with previous versions download support (e.g. filefolder/cb200-Primer_*.pdf - the * area will be used to extract version - see our Community Builder download version dropdown selection for example).
    • Create presets comprized of multiple package that your users can download and install on their Joomla site as a single Joomla extension install (try this out on our demo site where you can login as an administrator)
    • Let your authorized users maintain or add new packages from frontend (without need for administrative area login privileges - experience this also on our demo site and see relevant screenshots included further down).
    • Drag and drop file uploading and frontend version deletion (experience this on demo site and check out screenshot below)

    These are just some of the features avaiable in our latest CB Package Builder which comes with its own Joomla module, Joomla plugin and CB Paid Subscription integration plugin (to require active subscription for package download).

    Here are some additional screenshots illustrating some of the previously mentioned features that - once again - you can experience first hand on our demo site and discuss this exciting new release on our forums!

    CB Package builder is available to all Developer Members or as a single-item purchase.

  • Joomla 3.6 Released



    Joomla 3.6 is here and works fine with Community Builder !

    After 2 release candidate rounds - that the CB Team has been testing against our latest Community Builder 2.0.14 - the Joomla project has released its version 3.6 stable package.

    This new Joomla release has lots of bug fixes and quite a few - 400 !!! - improvements that make everyone's day to day Joomla usage easier.
    Here are siome of the highlighted features:

    • Joomla update can now do a reinstall for you reverting back to default code.
    • Usability improvements that help you find things easier and get things done quicker with dropdown task execution.
    • New Sub form field function for developers to take advantage of.  Developers should read this as nested forms and enhanced repeatable fields.

So, there are many features for you to explore and remember that Community Builder 2.0.14 works fine with this new Joomla release!

  • CBSubs GPL 4.1 with Timed content, Taxes inclusive price display, and plan substitutions usable anywhere

    cbsubs41 550

    CBSubs GPL Paid Subscriptions Membership 4.1 released with 9 new features and 7 bug fixes.
    Up to date paid members can download from here

    The punchline for this release is -- "Content Control Everywhere".

    The new features give you fantastic granular control to display any plan description or pricing data in any Joomla content area (articles or modules) and even lets you specify when specific content is to appear (or disappear) for your paid subscribers. Well that's the punchline, but there are many more features and CBSubs default and rounded templates are now fully responsive -- so everything looks great on tablets and smartphones!

    The major new features included in this release are:

    • -- Decide when your paid subscribers see the content you want them to see --

      (2606) - Timed Release content support using new [cbsubs:if since] tags
      Lets you filter any Joomla content based on time criteria against subscription baseline.

      Example:
      [cbsubs:if plan="1" status="A" since>="1 week" and plan="1" status="A" since<="2 week"]

              This only shows up between 1st and 2nd week of your subscription
      [/cbsubs:if]

    • -- Optionally include tax costs in your plan price displays --

      (3732) Tax inclusive plan price display options
      Display plan price that includes default tax calculation.
      This is off by default, but you can enable it on a plan by plan basis
      default tax rate setting to be used (based on default customer location).

    • -- Personalize your marketing by embedding plan or subscription data in your content --

      (5953) Display plan or subscription content in Joomla content
      Show plan or subscription specific data in your Joomla or
      CB content areas (articles, modules, fields).

      Example:
      Upgrade to our plan [cbsubs:plans plan="1" output="name" /]
      for just [cbsubs:plans plan="1" output="price" /] now!

    • -- Even more tools to help you target active and even expired subscribers --

      (5954) Condition Joomla content depending on subscriptions
      You can now embed [cbsubs:if plan] substitutions in your Joomla content to show content based on subscription.

      Example:
      [cbsubs:if plan="1" status="X"]Your subscription has expired,
      please renew today at our discounted price[/cbsubs:if]

    • -- Make things easier and faster for people to pay you --

      (5934) New URL to take potential purchaser directly to basket
      This new feature gives you a different URL that bypasses the plan selection process
      taking purchaser directly to basket ready for checkout.

    • -- Sales process is now awesome looking on any tablet or smartphone device --

      (4987) Updated default and rounded template markup to Bootstrap 3
      The default and Rounded templates have been updated to support Bootstrap 3,
      so frontend CBSubs displays are now fully responsive and look great
      on all viewing devices (tablets and smartphones).

    • -- More controls for you to keep your subscribers motivated to follow your customer lifecycle --

      (5912) New subscription plan time sensitive settings to disallow reactivation of expired or cancelled subscription
      You can now configure a plan to not allow reactivation once it has expired
      or has been cancelled.
      Setting also lets you configure the "disallowing" based on duration since expiration
      or the duration before expiration.

  • A website story - part 3

    wap3

    (continued from part 2)

    You are really happy with the results so far.

    Your site is up, users are joining and searching your user list pages and making friends with each other. You are able to send off personalized email messages using the CB Mass Mailing functionality located in the CB User management page.

    But you realize that you need to help people express themselves and make noise on your website.

    Back to the CB Primer Book you go and find Chapter 8 Working with Plugins and start reading. Aha, CB Blogs looks very promising. What if you setup and allow your users to blog straight from their user profile page? And how about storing the blogs as Joomla articles so your can use the Joomla content management functionality to show off the blogs outside the profile pages also. Wow, there is even another great video tutorial that illustrates this - CB Blogs Plugin Joomla Mode.

    You quickly get this new functionality working on your website and once again you create a new Joomla tutorial article explaing how your users can create their own blogs. Of course you once again use the CB Mass Mailing functionality to let your existing users know about this new functionality you added.

    Discuss this on our forums and stay tuned for next part!

     

     
  • A website story - part 2

    story2

    Continuing where we left off, you have your Joomla website in place - with great content -  and Community Builder configured to handle the registration process and the profile pages of your community. All your members get their own profile page where they can update their data when needed. You have also created a number of user lists with searching enabled to let your users find others with similar interests.

    From experience with other social netwrking sites (aka Facebook) you know that people should be able to hook-up with each other (social friends).

    Back to the CB Primer Book you go and find Chapter 9 Working with Connections and start reading. Aha, Connections is the term used to describe this user hook-up. You read the chapter and watch the great #24 tutorial - and you quickly get this functionality configured on your site. You notice that connections can be bidirectional or unidirectional - but for know you decide to keep things simple. Bidirectional it is - if I am connected to someone, that someone is also connected with me. You have a test user configured and you establish a connection to test out the process. Email notification is sent, user receiving the connection request approves it and the connection is set and recorded in the new Connections tab.

     connections

    Wow, that's cool you say.

    As you were reading the CB Primer Book, you noticed that in Chapter 8 Working with Plugins there is a discussion about integration with a Private Messaging extension called uddeIM. "Hmm, why not you say .." and quickly read up on it and download it and get it configured and integrated. Another cool video - tutorial #21 - helps you in this process and you also quickly add new messages notification to your CB Login module.

    Now you have a better way for your users to communicate with each other - directly on your site.

    This is cool you think. I hope users can quickly take advantage of this new functionality. "Hmm, maybe I should create a new article describing Connections and Private Messaging". Yup, that is the way to go. So, back to Joomla to create new content. Great screenshots are taken and embedded in your awesome tutorials - this way your users will not have to experiment. All they need to do is read the new tutorials.

    You scratch your head and ask yourself - "How can I let people now about this functionality and the great tutorials I created?"

    Back to the CB Primer Book and to Chapter 7 Working with CB User Management where you find the Mass Mailer functionality. And of course you find another great video tutorial #38 to guide you through this task. This is exactly what I need you think - wow these guys have thought of everything!

    So you quickly create your mass mailing message - add links to your new Joomla tutorial articles and bombs away!

    And suddenly you realize: "Wow, and all of this is still FREE!!!".

    Discuss this on our forums and stay tuned for next part!

     

     
  • New CB Replacer 1.0 Released

    cbreplacer10

    The New CB Replacer 1.0 release can be downloaded by Pro/Dev Members!

    This new add-on is a Joomla content plugin that lets you define replacement parameters and their values. The replacement parameters will be identified and replaced by their respective values when found in Joomla content. Regular expression replacements are also supported.

    This is a very efficiently written Joomla plugin that will really help you keep your content up to date.

    Here is two simple use case examples that demonstrate the power and usefulness of this new add-on:

    1. If you are referencing a product version in multiple locations of a Joomla article or in multile Joomla articles, just use your defined replacer string - e.g. {VERSION} instead of hardcoding the version number 1.0 everwhere - and define your replacer string as {VERSION} = 1.0. This way when a new version of your product is released all you have to do is update a single value in the replacer definition (see first replacement in image).

    2. You can also define a regex replacement to convert your This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. email addresses to example AT gmail DOT com (see second replacement in image).

    This new add-on does not require Community Builder. It is a Joomla 3.4+ compatible Joomla content plugin that you can install using the Joomla Extensions Manager and publis/configure from the Joomla Plugin manager.

    Discuss this on our forums.
