We're big fans of StackIdeas products around here, and have been very excited about their new social network suite, EasySocial. With our v5.2 release of JFBConnect, we added initial support for EasySocial and have been overwhelmed by the response from our users on the features available, and what they want to see next. We just created a new demo video and features page to show off our integration.
Interested in the 4 minute video tour or more information on current integration capabilities, like Facebook, Google and Twitter authentication in EasySocial as well as future plans? Then read on.
We just pushed out v5.2.1 of JFBConnect. This is a minor release, but has over a dozen fixes for issues that have cropped up since the v5.2.0 release, which included Joomla Twitter Authentication, EasySocial social network integration, new registration flows and other features.
The biggest fix in this release is an update to the Autotune configuration tool, which broke due to changes that Facebook implemented on November 13th. Most other issues are cosmetic (alignment issues, Twitter's custom image option in the SCLogin module didn't work, etc). There are no security or major issues fixed in this release, but it's always recommended to upgrade to ensure you have the most solid version we offer.
JFBConnect v5.2 is now available and brings Twitter authentication for Joomla, EasySocial and Joomla "user profile" support, a new Open Graph debugger tool, a new social sharing module, and a new registration flow option for tighter integration with your existing Joomla, EasySocial and JomSocial registration paths. It's a big, big release, just 3 months after our last release which included Google+ authentication. Read on for all the details, or go get it now and for some awesome Joomla social networking integration!
We've been consulting on a website which integrates Recurly into Joomla and wanted to get feedback from our users on the possibilities. The website is for a Southwest Florida Home Watch service company. Recurly is a software-as-a-service subscription payments platform which specializes in monthly payments. They have a rich API which we did minor integration with, and now we're looking for feedback on whether this is something other Joomla users would be interested in using.
JFBConnect v5.1.2 is now available now with improvements to the recently added Google+ integration. This release contains compatibility enhancements, bug-fixes and minor improvements for the most powerful extension social network integration for Joomla. The largest change in this release is a move to a new jQuery compatibility layer. We've heard from multiple users about conflicts with templates and other extensions since the 5.1 version originally came out. This new version should fix those issues. Read on for more information on other changes in this release.
Last week we ran a test of a new Facebook Notifications feature we're working on for JFBConnect, the social network integration extension for Joomla. The test was a resounding success with a 28% engagement rate, and now we'd like to have your feedback on it, how you'd want to use it, and, in general, let us know what you think.
Google Authentication for Joomla, Improved Open Graph Actions, cover photo importing into JomSocial, usability improvements like an overhauled installer and administrator interface and tons of other features for Joomla social networking integration are now available in JFBConnect v5.1 from SourceCoast
The time is quickly approaching. Your website is ready for more Joomla social network integration with deeper social engagement tools from more network providers, and JFBConnect will be delivering later this month and throughout the rest of this year. Later this August, a major release for JFBConnect will be available with Google+ integration, greatly improved sharing options, a simpler interface, and a whole lot more.
Read on for the upcoming features in v5.1 and our roadmap through the end of the year.
The next major feature release of JFBConnect is coming along very well and planned for next month. While in development, we realized we already had over 30 enhancements, improvements to JomSocial Facebook integration, bug-fixes and our new Enhanced Joomla Login module ready to go. We decided we wanted these improvements in our user's hands as soon as possible, so we released v5.0.1 late last week. Read on for more information about the new release as well as the current status of v5.1.
A new version of JLinked, the LinkedIn extension for Joomla, is now available. This release adds amazing new features like automatic registration, automatic account linking and our new Enhanced Joomla Login module - SCLogin. JLinked has always provided the easiest way to integrate LinkedIn with Joomla, JomSocial, Kunena, Community Builder and other extension; now it adds even more power to do so.
Father time has not treated the SourceCoast website well. Originally launched as a 'brochure-ware' site for pitching Joomla consulting services, it morphed into the home of the best extensions for Facebook integration with Joomla and LinkedIn integration with Joomla. Because of the large shift in focus, and the drastic shift in web technology and design, the old site had become a bit of a mess as content sprawled in different areas and wasn't as easy to find as we'd have liked.
