Premium JomSocial Template - JA Mood Free For Professional Plan Members And JomSocial Flat Theme Preview

JA Mood - Social Joomla Template from JoomlArt with full support for JomSocial is now available for FREE to Professional and SuperCharged plan users.

Why Exclude Standard Plan Members?

Standard plan got major boost in our last update when the feature limitations were removed and were brought to the same level of Professional package. Standard plan users were also extended complimentary JA Builder Pro access worth $50. It would not be fair to JomSocial Professional members and JoomlArt team to offer complimentary access of premium products worth more than the JomSocial Standard plan price itself.

We encourage our Standard Plan members to upgrade to Professional plan to take maximum benefit of the offerings. There are more releases lined up for Professional users. For instance, we have a brand new JomSocial theme coming soon for Professional plan.

JA Mood Preview

JA Mood is the newest Joomla template from JoomlArt specifically designed for Music, Community and Social websites. It fully supports JomSocial with customized styles accros the component and it's built with robust T3 Framework with intuitive admin panel.

Weekend Update: JomSocial 4.4 Development Preview 2 With Chat System Enabled Has Dropped And It’s Awesome.

We have been working tirelessly to deliver a new and improved version of the inbox and turn it into the modern chat system. It was an overwhelming task that required a lot of code refactoring, improvements, and even solutions built from scratch as we couldn’t use the old technology upon inbox system was created.In today’s update, i’d like to take the time and show you what have we’ve been working at for the past several weeks, so take a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy the updates.JomSocial Inbox Will Be Turned Into Chat-like SystemModern day conversations require modern utilities, and JomSocial 4.4 is going to provide just that. A sleek and elegant live chat system, fully incorporated into JomSocial’s minimalistic design to nicely blend into every template you can throw it at while being lightweight and resource thrifty to spare the server from unwanted stress.Whatever the pick, you’re surely going to enjoy this upgrade.Old Functionalities In A New WrappingsOne on One conversations, Group Chats, posting images, files and links, seen statuses… are just the small things you already get used to in the inbox system. All of these features are carried over to the new chat….And Then Added SomeThe new chat is happening in real time, and also supports API’s where third-party could implement their own stickers, GIFS, emoticons and so on.In the first stage, we do not have plans to implement these add-ons as we want to focus on finishing the chat first. Once we have stable system in place we will most likely refresh the chat and consider making these additions as well as creating the system-wide plugin which will show the chat on every page of your Joomla-based website.Development Preview 2For all JomSocial customers, we are providing a Development Preview of the new JomSocial 4.4 version which you can find in your download package.Simply download JomSocial again from your account and unzip the package on hard drive. You will find the com_community_4.4_dev_preview_2.zip installer which you can use in Joomla Extension manager to install.

This version is NOT suitable for production sites and we strongly advise you to make a backup or shadow-copy of your website and then install JomSocial 4.4 Development Preview there.

Do not try to install this version on a live site as there will be huge notice banner on every page and support will not be provided.

Design Is Not Final And Some Options Are Disabled

Being a development preview, JomSocial 4.4 that you can download is not a finished product. That being said, we still have to improve the layout of the chat window, iron some bugs that we are already aware of and some options like posting links and turning them into Embedly cards or fetched content are disabled.

While we left the access to Messaging Backend Configuration available, frontend will not respect most options yet.

IMPORTANT: Immediately after installation, go to "JomSocial Dashboard -> Theme Designer -> Colors" and press save to recompile JomSocial template styles to support new chat. This step won't be needed in stable release

To Use Automatic Registration Or Not

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.

The Value of a Joomla Extension

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.

Common Joomla caching issues

Joomla's caching system can be a huge benefit to your site, but can also cause a lot of headaches. The advantages are obvious: an overall better user experience, faster load times, less powerful server requirements and more. We're not going in-depth on the benefits here though. Let's talk about some of the pain-points that you should know about when trying to get Joomla's caching setup.

Should I Use SSL On My Site?

Should you enable SSL on your website? Yes, you should. Look at that! I just saved you the time of reading the full post. Years ago, there would have been a checklist of reasons for or against enabling SSL. Now there's no need for that list. The answer is yes and you don't even need to skip to after the fold if you don't want to. Every website should be accessible with that little 's' in https, have a green padlock and bask in the glory of some additional security. Better yet, https should be the only way to access your site.

If you do read on though, you'll get a good explanation on what SSL is for, why you should enable it and why things have changed since that non-existent post I could have made long ago.
