Community Builder 2.6.4 can be freely downloaded by all registered members


We just released Community Builder 2.6.4, with 8 improvements. CB 2.6.4 is compatible with Joomla 4.0 and Joomla 3.10.

CB 2.6.4 improves privacy in the integrated private messaging system (PMS) and for the IP address logging.

Following feedback from users on the CB 2.6.3 release with newly introduced PMS system message reporting function we have reviewed and improved private messages management in the administration area.

Super-Users can now enable private message management in administration backend (disabled by default) and set Joomla access permissions for situations that require this (restricted by default to Super-Users). All message management accesses are logged using the Joomla log. This cannot be turned off.

The second important privacy improvement is the optional anonymized logging of IP addresses that can be turned on as required.

Details can be found in the full CB 2.6.4 changelog.

Community Builder 2.6.4 is a highly recommended upgrade for all CB sites on Joomla 3.x and 4.0.

Unless you are just upgrading from 2.6.1, 2.6.2 or 2.6.3, as always, you should first test on a cloned environment before upgrading your production site.

Our demo website has already been updated to Community Builder 2.6.4, so you can see it in action along will all our Joomlapolis add-ons.

Keep your hosting and Joomla up to date for next Community Builder 2.7!

Our next planed release, Community Builder 2.7, will be released very soon. As already announced in CB 2.6.0, CB 2.6.1, CB 2.6.2 and CB 2.6.3 news, CB 2.7 will require PHP 7.4+ and MySql 5.6+. The upgrade/install process will check these requirements.

As Joomla 3.10 is now the only maintained 3.x series and a simple one-click backwards compatible upgrade from Joomla 3.9.x, we are revisiting our Joomla requirement for next Community Builder 2.7 to Joomla 3.10 (up from now unmaintained 3.9 series 3.9.0, released 3 years ago).
