Improved LinkedIn Registration for Joomla!

Jlinked-LinkedIn-for-JoomlaGreat news! In August, LinkedIn added the ability to fetch a user's email address. We updated our LinkedIn for Joomla extension, JLinked (JED Listing), to take advantage of this and added other new features as well! The new release, v1.3, is available now and allows for pulling of a user's email address into the registration form automatically. Additionally, we've added the auto-username feature of JFBConnect to automatically select an available username for your new visitors.

This will be the final feature release of the v1.x series of JLinked. The next release, v2.0, will be out later this year and support a fully automatic, 1-click, registration process. That has been one of the major requests for JLinked, and has been awesome for users of JFBConnect for years now. With the new email address ability, we can finally implement that with JLinked, and we're excited to do so!

If you haven't already seen it, we highly recommend checking out our Roadmap to Joomla 3.0 blog post. This release will also the last feature release available for Joomla 1.5. Bug fix releases (v1.3.x) and support will be still be available for Joomla 1.5 if issues arise.

As always, we offer a 20% discount on JLinked if you are already a subscriber to JFBConnect, the Facebook for Joomla integration extension. There are also discounts for the social bundle package for both JLinked and JFBConnect available now! For more information, see all extension options.
