Another Extension made it in our line up

Written by

It looks like our specialty with extensions is to fill-in the gap where we seem to find Joomla lacking. Now don't get me wrong, we think Joomla is the best CMS on the planet, just that it doesn't come with everything you need pre-installed. And that's ok! That's where developers like us get to do our best work.

Menu Links Majix

With this in mind, we have added a new extension to our line-up that helped us create buttons and links on our new website during the last upgrade. We asked ourselves, how can we add links to our site in articles (or for us, we use K2) and if the links changes, they won't break. The answer we came up with is to leverage the usage of plain text links that Joomla creates for every menu item that is created (an alias).

Oh sure, you can use some fancy SEO link generator component, but if you are like us... we like to keep things simple. So we created a simple little content plugin that you can add any where on your site that will accept a content plugin. You know, those funny little brackets { } that you place stuff in that can enhance your site.

It would look something like this: { menulink id:444,class:btn } (spaces were added so the plugin wasn't parsed). When actually parsed, looks like this: Menu Links Majix Documentation

And to that point, if you want to see exactly how to use this plugin with more examples, visit the link.

Don't Miss out on this little Gem!

Written by

Did you miss finding our Constant Contact Sign-Up Module (Sign-Up Majix Pro) on the Joomla Extensions Directory?

We stumbled across the fact that our module was unpublished on the JED when we attempted to add a new submission. It turns out that after the last overhaul of the JED, someone took to revisiting published extensions and disabled ours because it didn't meet all of the criteria.

Really?

A plugin that has been listed for years, suddenly and without notice was unpublished. Anyways, I don't mean to whine. I just wrote this article to share that our popular module is still available and ready for download (with an active club subscription of course).

It has been almost a month and multiple support tickets to just sit and play the 'waiting game'. Hopefully we will get this all resolved soon, but rest assured, this module is still available. It's ain't goin' nowhere!

-UPDATE-

March 6th, 2015

We are happy to report that our module has finally been published once again on the JED. It seems that with the latest updgrade to their site, they installed some new 'hidden' features. One of which unfortunately unpublished our module. I won't bore you with all the details, we're just happy to report that all of our extensions are listed once again and available on the Joomla Extensions Directory.

JoomLadds 2.5.x Site Upgrade

Written by

We just had the time of our lives!

No, seriously. Ever since Joomla! 3.x became a stable version, long before the Joomla! Team announced doing away with the Long Term & Short Term release cycles, we tried our hand at upgrading our site from the current 2.5.x version to 3.x.

Needless to say, every attempt resulted in the infamous "White Screen of Death"! And believe me, we tried many times. Due to our resource limitations and lack of available time to work on our own site, the update was tabled for a later date.

A few months later... We couldn't give up; we knew that sooner or later (hopefully sooner) we would have to get our site upgraded. So, the next step was to create our new site from the beginning. A brand new JoomLadds.com was born. If you are interested in our progress, please read on...

Our Signup Majix Pro - Revisited!

Written by

Greetings from the JoomLadds Team!

We have been hard at work updating our Constant Contact Signup Majix Pro Module. Not only have we added many new features, but this version is the first to have OAuth2 Authentication built in. The older version of authentication that the Constant Contact API used was basic, which required account holders to enter their Constant Contact Username & Password into the module settings and those credentials were stored in the Joomla database in order access their account information. With OAuth2, you are now able to register your website with Constant Contact by granting access to your account, much the same way that Facebook connects with external websites and applications.
