Community Builder 2.7.2 can be freely downloaded by all registered members


We just released Community Builder 2.7.2, with 8 improvements and 8 bug fixes.

CB 2.7 is compatible with Joomla 4.1.0 and Joomla 3.10.6. It fixes a small bug when editing of Joomla user parameters with new Joomla 4.1.0.

Community Builder 2.7.2 starts leveraging the new PHP 7.4 prerequisite. This allows us to upgrade included third-party open-source libraries, starting with the Guzzle library used for HTTP/HTTPS accesses, in CB for version checks and upgrades, and by CB add-ons. Guzzle received a big boost from version 4 (the last one that was PHP 5.6-compatible) to latest version 7 thanks to the new prerequisites. We could also update Bootstrap to latest Bootstrap 4 version and have minified CSS core files.

Finally, we added to the user management a batch task to mass-set or reset the user status requiring a password-change. This is useful to automatically ask users to change their password on next login.

The new features of this release are:

  • Added full support for Joomla 4.1.0
  • New batch button to mass-set or reset user-password-change-request status.
  • Additional e-mail fields validation option
  • Minified core CSS files
  • Updated Bootstrap to latest Bootstrap 4 release
  • Updated HTTP/S fetching library from Guzzle 4 to Guzzle 7.
  • Reminder: Minimum system requirements are now: Joomla 3.10+, PHP 7.4+, and MYSQL 5.6+ (or MariaDB 10.x), as announced since CB 2.6.0 release, 10 months ago.

Our full CB 2.7.2 changelog is available for details.

Community Builder 2.7.2 is a recommended upgrade for all CB sites on Joomla 3.10.x and 4.0.x and highly recommended for Joomla 4.1 sites.

Our demo website has already been updated to Community Builder 2.7.2, so you can see it in action along will all our Joomlapolis add-ons.
