Allowing social network registrations on your site can be a huge boon to signing up users quickly. There's a few things you should consider while implementing the registration flow. It's extremely easy to use the "Enable Automatic Registration" setting in JFBConnect so that you have a simple, 1-click social network login process. It couldn't be simpler to let users register, have their account created, email address, avatar and profile imported quickly. So you'll probably be surprised to hear it's not the best option for all sites. Read on for the details.

JFBConnect v7.0.3 is available now with some great improvements to the best social network integration extension for Joomla. This is the last expected update to the 7.0 release until the 7.1 version, planned for Q4. Read on for all the details of this release and what's coming for JFBConnect later this year.

I've given presentations at more than a dozen Joomla World Conferences, Joomla Days, and Joomla User Groups meeting. Those presentations have covered JFBConnect, our social network extension for Joomla, as well as topics like 'Introduction to Joomla Development' and the generic 'Top 10 Must-Have Extensions'. We even had a chapter in the "Joomla! Development - A Beginner's Guide" book on Running a Business Around Joomla Extensions. In all presentations, regardless of topic, the same questions almost always comes up.. and usually in that order:

  • Why does JFBConnect cost $60?
  • Do you have a coupon code?
  • How can you give refunds for an open source extension?

Those are all excellent questions, and it's time to delve a little into our business model, what an extension developer does, what an end-user expects and our philosophy on coupons.

Between August 3rd and 4th, the Joomla project put out 2 new releases for the 3.6 series and 3 blog posts explaining the changes and how to update. The rapid fire changes may be confusing, especially when reading through the announcement posts that talk about CSRF, PHP versions, security issues with different levels and other details. If you're unsure what to do, read on for a general overview of the updates and a step-by-step guide on how to update.
