JFBConnect v9.0 Beta Release - Joomla 4 Support

We recently made available JFBConnect v9.0 beta. While we don't normally release beta versions, we wanted to take a cautious approach due to the amount of updates included. This is the first release that includes support for the upcoming Joomla 4, but it has so much more to offer!

Joomla 4 Support

JFBConnect v9.0 will be the first release to support Joomla 4. The newest Joomla version streamlines the underlying core code and updates common libraries like jQuery and Bootstrap to the much more modern versions. The admin area has been completely overhauled with a fresh coat of paint as well.

Along the way, we've presented at multiple Joomla World Conferences, Joomla Days and at local Joomla user group meetings. It's been an incredibly exciting journey, and we wanted to let you know... we're not nearly done yet!

Take Our Survey & Help Define the Future Roadmap for JFBConnect

We put together a 5 question survey to help us better understand how you currently use JFBConnect and what you'd like to see in future releases. Please take a minute to fill it out and help making social integration even better for your site.

JFBConnect v8.4.6 Released - Instagram and Facebook Compatibility Updates

JFBConnect v8.4.6 is now available. This release is primarily a compatibility update to support upcoming changes in Instagram and Facebook. At the end of October, some older API and widgets for both Facebook and Instagram will no longer work. Specifically:

Facebook Graph API v3.1 sunsets on 10/27. Versions of JFBConnect before v8.2.0 will likely no longer function with Facebook after that date.Instagram's embedded post feature has been overhauled and the current implementation will no longer work on October 24th. Once your site is updated to JFBConnect v8.4.6, you'll need to add your Facebook 'Client Token' in the administrator area to continue embedding Instagram posts on your site.

In addition, there were some other under-the-hood improvements and bug fixes, which you can see in the JFBConnect changelog.

We highly recommend updating to JFBConnect v8.4.6 to ensure your authentication and other social features continue working properly.

The Next Major Release Is Coming

This is the last planned version in the JFBConnect v8 series, which was originally launched in 2018. Version 8 has been instrumental for laying the groundwork for future releases. Over the course of v8 development, we've added a new plugin system to easily add more social networks (we now support 15), improved Open Graph and sharing support, more widgets and loads of other improvements and features. 

Version 8 was all about breadth.. more features for more networks. Version 9 will be much more targeted with large improvements to specific features, like automatic posting, easier configuration and Joomla 4 compatibility. We'll be posting more about our long-term roadmap shortly. Stay tuned!

Facebook Messenger Chat

Recently, Facebook has launched a customer chat widget for Messenger. It allows your customers to message directly from your Joomla website to your Facebook Page. By combining interactions from the Messenger App and the plugin on your page, you'll be able to engage with your customer and keep them drawn into your site.

We've been tinkering with the beta version of the widget here on sourcecoast.com and have had some great conversations with users. Some have asked for support, others have asked pre-sales questions and existing subscribers have repeatedly requested to add this into JFBConnect. In all, we've seen how useful a chat widget can be to help get a conversation with your audience going. We heard you! In the newest version of JFBConnect v8.2.3, we've included the Messenger Chat functionality. Continue reading for instructions on how to add chat to your site.
