CMLiveDeal 1.7.0 Beta is released

CMExtension is pleased to announce the first beta release of CMLiveDeal 1.7. This beta includes some bug fixes and new features.

Bug fixes:

  • Failed to change deal's dates in back-end when Membership Pro integration was enabled.
  • New submitted deal was not approved automatically when Membership Pro integration was disabled and auto-approve was enabled.
  • Not all cities displayed in merchant map in back-end.

New features and improvements:

  • Bootstrap front-end framework version 3 is now supported. Now you can use CMLiveDeal wth Bootstrap 3 template.
  • Gird column in deal list is supported. Instead of having only 1 column in deal list, now you can configure to have 2, 3 or 4 columns.
  • Option to disable FontAwesome is added. You can disable FontAwesome loading in CMLiveDeal if another extension (template, plugin) already loads FontAwesome.
  • Expired coupons are not clickable in user's coupon list. Because expired coupons can't be printed any more, it confuses users when showing the links to printing page but that page shows 404 error.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any problem in this beta release or if you have any question!


CMExtension is happy to introduce our new Joomla! component - CMK2Inline.

What is CMK2Inline?

CM K2 Inline is a Joomla! component helping you customize K2 component’s back-end item list and edit extra field inline.

K2 is the popular powerful content extension for Joomla with CCK-like (content construction kit) features. Every item of K2 can be extended by extra fields. If the most important part of your K2 content is extra fields then you would find it difficult to modify your K2 items. You need to go to item list, click an item, click Extra Fields tab, modify extra fields, save the item, go back to the list, click an item, and so on... It is also difficult for you to compare the extra field values of your K2 items. You can't open 10 browser tabs to check and compare 10 items.

CMK2Inline is designed to help you on this - manage extra fields in K2 with ease.


  • Show/hide columns in K2 item list.
  • Change ordering of the columns.
  • Add columns for extra fields to the list.
  • Add/edit value of extra fields in-place.
  • Add/edit value of an extra field for many K2 items at once.
  • Use AJAX to save extra fields.
  • Popup notification for the result of AJAX request.
  • Tool to create/delete override layout file right in Joomla! back-end.
  • Support the following extra field’s types:
    • Text field
    • Textarea (Editor is not supported)
    • Drop-down selection
    • Multi-select list
    • Radio buttons (Displayed as drop-down selection to save space)
    • Date

Technical Requirements

  • Joomla! 3.x.x: CM K2 Inline is NOT compatible with Joomla! 1.x.x or 2.x.x, only Joomla! 3.x.x is supported. Please check Joomla! 3’s technical requirements for more information.
  • Bootstrap 2: CM K2 Inline is NOT compatible with Bootstrap 3. Bootstrap 2 is available by default in Joomla! 3.x.x. The default template of Joomla! back-end (Isis) uses Bootstrap 2, so this template is recommended, if you use a custom back-end template, it must support Bootstrap 2.
  • K2: CM K2 Inline was tested on K2 2.6.5, 2.6.6, 2.6.7, 2.6.8 and 2.6.9.
