CM Live Deal 1.4.1 Beta

After releasing CMLiveDeal 1.5.0 last week, we received some bug reports from CMLiveDeal users, so today we release 1.5.1 to fix those problems:

  • Incorrect ending time of deal when integrating with Membership Pro. This problem didn't happen to all users, it depended on how you use Membership Pro, so we didn't recognize this problem until now. There is also a new Joomla! plugin "Membership Pro - CM Live Deal integration" to help integrate with Membership Pro and fix this bug, you need to enable this plugin after you update to 1.5.1 (it is installed automatically when you update). We also added a new tool to re-calculate your deals's ending times, we suggest you run this tool after you update to 1.5.1.
  • The fields in merchant registration form were always "required", although in the plugin setting they were set to "optional".

We want say thank to CMLiveDeal users for help us test CMLiveDeal 1.5.0 and all users who have supported CMLiveDeal!

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any problem with CMLiveDeal 1.5.1 or if you have any idea to suggest!

We would like to announce the first release of our small plugin - CMAvatar.

CM Avatar is a very simple Joomla! plugin which adds avatar (profile picture) field to Joomla! user profile.

As administrator you can configure

  • where avatar files are stored
  • maximum file size is allowed to upload
  • avatar width
  • what file extensions are allowed to upload

Avatar files are resized and convert to JPG image file, then are stored in your defined folder.

To display avatar on your website, you need add some PHP code to where you want to display avatar, please see the documentation for more info.

We saw many people requested this feature many times on the net, from Joomla! forum, mailing list, StackOveflow, ect... so we decided to develop a plugin for it. We hope this plugin is helpful and save people times in building Joomla website.

Download and source code: https://github.com/cmextension/cmavatar/

Documentation: http://cmavatar-docs.readthedocs.org/

Demo site is not available, please try the plugin by yourself to see how it works, you can check the documentation for some screenshots.
