New Joomlapolis Rocks !

3 years 9 months ago #282764 by allenjj
Conceptually the listing of my downloads in my profile could be really useful, but right now they just list the plugin and the date downloaded, not the version number. Adding the version number would be helpful I think. Anyways, not trying to find fault with the new site as I love Joomlapolis and Community Builder, but trying to make it even better by adding my feedback.

There is a bug in versions comparison in CB, which is fixed in latest CB nightly. Just install latest CB nightly and things should be displaying green when up to date.

We love feedbacks! Keep them coming :)

You can edit and add comments on your Downloads history. There is a cog on the right with "Edit" drop-down where you can name your downloads.

The real interest of the Downloads history is that if you click on the link, it will re-download you the same items, but with their latest versions. So not sure that version numbers would make any sense. Specially, if you download 30+ items in a single download ?

That said overall I do like the new look and think that the new design will help less experienced or new joomlapolis users. Do hope you will create the grid listing for folks like me.


In "Downloads" menu, each package shows it's latest version in a drop-down where you can see the available previous versions too. Also the versions-check inside CB Plugin manager now works too, and you can even single-click to install upgrades!

Does 2 items replace enough the previous table for the uses you had of that table we had on our old site ?

(the big advantage is that those 2 items automatically update as we release ;) )

I know both really well and I am curious to investigate your creation in more detail at a later date. Good to know "Joomlapolis" choose to rely on this particular combination. Personally I was a bit hesitant to use it for important jobs and tasks. Unfortunately, I found some things I did not like... but hopefully they are going to be improved in the next major updates. Nonetheless, I am confident and looking forward to give some feedback very soon.

Personally Helix3 templates are fantastic; the parameters offered for customization are very helpful plus the drag and drop layout editor. Page Builder is riddled with issues and caused me quite a bit of headache. I've had to add a multitude of fixes to it in addition to Joomla content.prepare support. With that said though it is still the best Page Builder extension from my experience testing the others available so don't let some of my frustration shy away from using it, lol.

I bet that would show a lot of interesting tips and insights. Please!

Massive task, lol. I used notepad++ to keep a TODO list. I don't have anything public in that regard to share. Just took it 1 step at a time. Getting the initial layout planned was the first step, but that we just used a template that had an initial layout to our liking (the revibe template specifically). The products page took a good week just to get us all to agree on a single design that we'd use for each product page. The individual product pages content wise then took some time as they all include product screenshots, etc.. I'll be happy to answer any further questions if you've anything more specific that you're curious about. :)

Just a heads up. Our new demosite has launched! Please note it's not 100% completed yet. By that I mean I don't have demos for every addon configured yet, but we've quite a few thus far. Please let us know what you think. I will try to create menu structures to experience as many aspects of a plugin as possible.

demo.cbdemosites.com/

A few cool features are also in the works like 1-click demo login and backend demo.
