Last week we released minor updates to the profile plugins for Kunena and JomSocial to improve their integration with Facebook. Both of these plugins are compatible with JFBConnect v3.1.x, our premiere Joomla Facebook extension (JED Link). You are advised to upgrade if you're using these 3rd party extensions and want to use the features mentioned below.
JomSocial Facebook Plugin v3.1.1 - Added an option to update the JomSocial status with the user's current FB status on registration/login.
Kunena Facebook Plugin v3.1.1 - Fixed a bug where a user's avatar may not be updated when logging back in.
Thanks for using JFBConnect!
The newest version of PayToUpgrade, version 1.6, is now available (JED Listing). This release has numerous enhancements and continues the march of PayToUpgrade in being the easiest way to charge users for features and permissions on your site, and for adding payments to 3rd party components like Mosets Tree, HotProperty, JomSocial, Agora, and more!
The biggest enhancement is the ability for a user to easily extend their upgrade without having to let it expire first. This allows a site owner to help prevent listings from going unpublished, maintain a steady revenue, and keep your users more engaged in your site. In addition, PayToUpgrade has also been updated to fully utilize Joomla's language files, so each page can be easily translated to your language of choice. Additionally, by request of users (where we get many of our development ideas) enhanced filtering options and ease-of-navigation features have been added in the front-end views.
Multiple other features and bug-fixes can be seen in the PayToUpgrade changelog. Or, read on to read about all the new features and the plans for the next version(s) of PayToUpgrade!

Now you can easily import avatar, name, email, location, favorite movies, quotes, and about 30 other Facebook fields into any profile fields you want in seconds, every time the user logs in.
This release also has a ton of new features, speed improvements, and bug-fixes. Read on to find out about how to add the Login With Facebook button anywhere on your site, how to post to a user's Facebook wall on registration (great for promotion) or how to add Like, Comments, Friend Invites, or any of the other Facebook social widgets to your site!
Now you can easily add a Like button and/or Comment button to every article displayed on your site using JFBConnect.

The SourceCoast team has just published the first release candidate of JFBConnect 3.0, the best Joomla Facebook component! Facebook Like, Recommendations, Comments, Feed, Fan Box, Shared Friends, LiveStream, Share and Friend Invite modules are all included in the new package.
First released in 2008, JFBConnect has been the easiest, most powerful, and well-supported component for Facebook registration and integration into your Joomla site. In addition to the new social modules, 3.0 also brings support for Facebook's Graph API, new features (auto-login, FB Analytics data, much more), easier integration into 3rd party components, and numerous speed improvements. All of this is in addition to the existing profile import features for Kunena, Community Builder, and JomSocial...
Today, JFBConnect v2.6.2 was released. This version has some important updates to conform to, and work with, Facebook's revised privacy policies that will go into effect in July. This has also given us the opportunity to change some of the permission requests to be more inline with how our subscribers have asked them to work.
The biggest change is that now the settings for "Request Email Permission" and "Request Post To Wall Permission" have been changed to "Require Email Permission" and "Require Post To Wall Permission". Now you can prevent users from logging in via Facebook if they don't want to provide their real, or Facebook proxy, email address. Same goes for the post to wall permission.
