Big update for Community Builder Profile Pro

The recent release of Community Builder Profile Pro brings support for CB 2.0 and lots of improvements within completely reworked backend and frontend parts of the component. Constructing Community Builder profiles with Profile Pro has never been so easy and productive.

Speeding up customization process with new design

Profile type edit view has been redesigned and now allows to focus on what you are currently working on: tabbed interface shows only the page you are editing right now alongside with a new toolbar, which significantly simplifies the process of adding new elements. Inactive workspaces and secondary controls are hidden, you see only what actually matters at the moment.

Profile type edit view

Switch between profile, profile edit and registration pages with one click and quickly navigate to any part you want to adjust. Always pick up where you left off: Profile Pro remembers what you were previously working on and automatically displays the last active workspace and toolbar section.

The new toolbar

This is a solution introduced for the first time and designed to replace Magic Window, which was used in previous versions to insert elements on page. The new toolbar does the same, but much quicker: CB fields, CB tabs and tab positions, code snippets, pages, modules and module positions can be added with just one click, without the need to open a new window as it was with Magic Window. Configuring and inserting jQuery UI tabs, conditionally displayed content, modal popup links and tooltips is also much simpler than before.

Toolbar

The toolbar brings advanced user experience and great productivity boost. It collapses the unused sections and sticks to the top while the page scrolls down so that the elements you want to insert are always easily accessible.

Adding code snippets simplified

The new interface for inserting and managing code snippets is probably the easiest way to add code in Joomla!. In new Profile Pro you are in just a few steps from adding PHP, HTML, CSS or Javascript on profile: click "New code" button, place your code in the text area, provide a title for the snippet and click "Save & Insert". The created snippet can be revised later and reused on other pages and profile types.

Editing code

Other changes

The new version includes many smaller improvements alongside with overall application optimization. Most known bugs have been fixed, as a result, Profile Pro's output loads faster on CB pages.

One of the most demanded features — adding CB tabs on profile edit and registration, is now available, as well as inserting whole tab positions. Profile Pro displays them just the same way as they appear on regular CB: you can now quickly recreate the default CB layout. It is very useful when you don't want to make significant changes but only need to do a small adjustment to a CB page.

A new better JomSocial Profile Pro

We are pleased to announce availability of JomSocial Profile Pro 3.5. Besides bug fixes and compatibility with the latest Joomla! 3.3 and JomSocial 3.2.1, this release features completely redesigned and reworked backend, which provides better tools for constructing and customizing JomSocial profile page.

Profile type edit

This view was updated to boost productivity. The secondary options were hidden (unless clicking "Show more") to focus on main settings and profile editing. Magic Window has been removed and replaced with an accordion style toolbar placed on the right side of the editor.

Profile type edit view

The new toolbar

The new toolbar includes the same features as previously in Magic Window, but handles them in a more convenient way. Elements that do not require additional settings (fields, profile specific elements, code snippets, modules and module positions) can be inserted in one click. There is no need to open a window each time to add a new element as it was before with Magic Window. As a result, the new toolbar significantly speeds up the process of contructing a profile page.

Adding code in a few clicks

The new code insertion and management interface is probably the easiest way to add any type of code in Joomla!. Click "New code" button, add your PHP, Javascript, CSS or HTML code and click "Save & Insert" to place it on profile. The created snippet can be revised later and reused in other profile types.

Adding code

Integration with JS Profile Types

Now you can enable Profile Pro to automatically assign a profile type to user depending on his profile type in JS Profile Types extension. The feature can be enabled in component configuration.

Celebrating 5 Year Anniversary - Up to 70% Off

5 years ago, in February 2009, we launched our very first extension - Community Builder Profile Pro. In a short time it found its target audience among users, who were willing to enhance user profiles on their Community Builder driven websites, and became so popular, that we've decided to introduce similar functionality for JomSocial with JomSocial Profile Pro. Soon we also released an easy-to-use module enabling paid file downloads - PayPal Payment and Download Manager, which was distributed for free and reached 10K downloads for Joomla! 1.5.

Since then we have been working on improving our extensions and supporting users. Our first community support forum counts almost 5K posts, while we were also receiving a big quantity of requests by email. New features were constantly developed and presented: in January 2010 we unveiled Magic Window for Community Builder Profile Pro, a powerful plugin boosting profile editing, which was added later to JomSocial Profile Pro and also came out as a stand-alone extension. Both Community Builder Profile Pro and JomSocial Profile Pro have come a long way and changed greatly from the initial releases, becoming much more than they were intended to be. 

Today all our extensions are compatible with Joomla! 2.5 and 3.2 and updated regularly to support latest Community Builder and JomSocial releases. Community Builder Profile Pro is featured at top of the lists of most reviewed and most rated Community Builder extensions on the JED, and we believe it is the most popular third party CB add-on.

We would like to thank everyone who supported us these years and give special thanks to our loyal customers, who've been with us since the very begining and continue trusting us. We offer discounts on all our products during February: 50% off on new purchases, 70% off on renewals.

All our extensions are now compatible with Joomla! 3

From the middle of August we started updating our extensions to support Joomla! 3. The first released extension working with Joomla! 3 was Magic Window stand-alone, which hadn't received updates since its initial release in January 2011. Within next 2 weeks Community Builder Profile Pro and JomSocial Profile Pro came out. JomSocial Profile Pro also got compatible with JomSocial 3.

So now all Joomduck extensions are up-to-date and working with the latest Joomla! 3 and 2.5 versions. You should see available updates in Joomla! extension manager. As you need to have an active subscription to get the latest version, one-click updating via backend is not possible, you have to download the update from your account on our site.

Support for Joomla! 1.5 has been dropped. We will no longer be developing or supporting Joomla! 1.5 versions of our extensions, though you will still be able to download the latest Joomla 1.5 releases.

We are glad to know that our very first Joomla! extension Community Builder Profile Pro is very popular among Joomla! users. It's been ranked as the most reviewed and most rated extension in Community Builder extensions category on the JED.

Also it gets one of the top positions in the lists of most favoured and top rated Community Builder extensions.

We would like to thank those who gave their attention to this component, and especially our customers who supported us these years (since 2009). We will work further to improve our products and provide better service.

Community Builder Profile Pro updated for Joomla! 2.5/CB 1.8

CB Profile Pro v1.1.0 is out providing support for Joomla! 2.5, CB 1.8 and featuring new great feature - multi-step registration.

Now you can manage your registration process in CB in a completely new way. You can create pages which will follow each other by clicking Next button and work like registration steps. E.g. step 1 can be basic account information (username, email, password), step 2 - additional information, step 3 - accept terms and conditions and so on. You are to decide how many steps will be on your registration.

Support for CB Conditionals and several more plugins is also added. Some code optimization made, several bugs fixes - so extension will work even smoother now.
