CMDealAggregator is now compatible with Joomla 3.x.x and Bootstrap is loaded in CMDealAggregator's back-end and front-end on both Joomla 2.5.x and Joomla 3.x.x.

In this release, the subscription form is removed, however tagcmdealaggregator plug-in is still available for integration with ACYMailing.

If you want to upgrade your CMDealAggregator from 1.1.0, please note the we have changed some language strings in front-end, so you may need to translate CMDealAggregator again. Always back up your site before upgrade! If it is possible you can try to upgrade on a test site first!

if you install CMDealAggregator 1.2.0 (new install, not upgrade), sample data will be installed, this helps you know how to setup sites and XML tags in CMDealAggregator.

We have added some new subscription plans, please check the purchase page for more info.

Please feel free to give us feedback and new feature suggestion in our forum. If you have any problem, please submit a support ticket and we will help you.

Thank you for your support!

We have finished the development for CMGroupBuying 2.3.0, now we are testing and we hope 2.3.0 could be released as soon as possible in this June.

In 2.3.0 we have fixed 2 bugs: failed to override background image for free coupon, issue with Joomla's flash uploader in Joomla 3.x.x.

New features in this releases are:

  • Bootstrap is loaded in back-end in both Joomla 2.5.x and 3.x.x.
  • Deal has 10 options at max, instead of 5 as previous releases.
  • A new email template for cash order, every time a new cash order is made this mail template is sent to administrator. This is useful for group buy sites which use cash payment.
  • Menu items for deal listing and free coupon listing now have an option to list deals / free coupons in a specific location.
  • K2 integration: we have ability to map a K2's item to a CMGroupBuying's deal, we can insert buy button, countdown timer and number of purchases of deal into K2's item. When user clicks on buy button in K2's item page, deal is added to cart and user is taken to CMGroupBuying's checkout form.
  • CM Group Buy template has a responsive K2 layout included. We can use this K2 layout to override K2's default layout to have a responsive site with Bootstrap.

With K2 integration, you can easily build a group buy site with your own layout and many other powerful extensions for K2. Some interest features of K2:

  • extra fields
  • comment system
  • tag system
  • multi-level category system
  • Facebook Like button, Twitter share button, Google +1 button are integrated by default
  • Google search integration
  • reCaptcha integration
  • powerful SEO (you can integrate with sh404SEF too!)
  • Community Builder integration
  • Many popular Joomla template providers have already integrated K2 into their templates with beautiful and flexible layouts and
  • many third-party extensions to extend K2
  • and more!

We would like to say thanks to CMGroupBuying users who requested and suggested these features! Thank  you to all CMGroupBuying users for your support!

We hope you will like CMGroupBuying 2.3.0!

Hello everyone!

Most of you may have noticed that our team has only 2 members, Hung Tran and Nguyen Trang. And... yes... the only 2 members of CMExtension team are going to get married in next 2 weeks, so for now we are not only busy in customer support, extension development, but also for celebrating our wedding.

We will try our best to reply your forum posts, tickets and emails as soon as possible. If there is any delay, we hope you could understand and give us a little more time to get back to you.

In the last week of May, our support will be back to normal.

Thank you for understanding!
