Lots of customer requests have led us to decide to think about the basic idea of our search plugin - to have all areas and settings of Jomsocial in ONE search plugin. We came to the conclusion that splitting the areas into own plugins has enormous advantages in performance and flexibility and so we did it - we refactored our search extension for Jomsocial Community from ground up.
If you want to show photos from Azrul´s community extension Jomsocial in a module position you don´t have much possibilities and the one you have are not really flexible and they have some crucial disadvantages in performance.
With JS Ultimate Photos we are closing the gap! This extension offers a very flexible and lightning fast possibility to show photos from group- or useralbums in a moduel position. Furthermore you have lots of configuration settings to choose the albums from which the photos should be shown.
- Group and/or Userphotos
- Hide private photos (Privacy)
We are not using the photos created by Jomsocial to show in our module but we are using our own - this is one of the killer features of our extension. Every time an image is uploaded in Jomsocial a plugin creates optimized images to show in the module. You can set the size and quality for the images. In this way we don´t need to scale the images and they are already in the desired size and quality you need to show in the module. No need to say that this is perfect for SEO and performance.
As this principle will only work with "new" images which are uploaded after the installation of JS Ultimate Photos we also have had to think about a way to get it work with "old" images, uplaoded before the installation of JS Ultimate Photos. The solution is an own component to create the images for the module from the existing photos in Jomsocial. With this component you can also recreate the images in another size or quality everytime there were changes with the module position and/or the template.
We are looking forward to your feedback!
Some time ago, I´ve announced here new extensions. I´ll start with the JS Custom Redirect extension, it allows you customized redirects after Login and/or Logout from Joomla, it is compatible with Joomla 1.5 and 2.5.
This extension allows custom redirects after Login and/or Logout depending to your Jomsocial Profiletype, the XIPT Profiletype (Joomlaxi) or the Joomla Usergroup
You can choose between the following redirect targets:
- Existing menu item
- Existing Joomla article
- Custom URL
- Stay on the site (you´ve been before login)
