We are pleased to announce the beta version of CMLiveDeal 1.3.0!

1.3.0 Beta has 2 bug fixes:

  • Bug in searching for deals.
  • Bug in uninstalling the component.

And some new features/options:

  • Option to hide merchant's photos in deal's popup.
  • Option to automatically approve and publish new submitted deal. Administrators don't need to manually check and publish new deal.
  • Coupon QR code is available. QR code will be used with Merchant mobile application in future.
  • Membership Pro's subscription renewal is now supported. When renew a subscription, the expiration dates of merchant's deals will be extended. This gives merchants ability to continue showing their deals without upgrading to higher subscription level which they don't need, this also gives site owners changes to earn more money.

Thank you for your support, bug reports and suggestions for CMLiveDeal!

If you encounter any problem in this beta release please let us know!

CMExtension would like to announce the availability of our new component - CM Mobile.

While working for the mobile applications of CM Live Deal, we realized that there were many tasks that we would need to do the same in many mobile applications: register new account, login, logout, connect to Facebook or Google, etc... If we implemented these features to CM Live Deal, we would need to add them again to our future intergations and extensions (for example CM Group Buying), then we would have the same code in many extensions, this would be difficult to fix bugs or add new features.

Those are the reasons we decided to build CM Mobile, it handles to common tasks to connect mobile application and Joomla!, it also includes the functions to get the data from the supported components and return to mobile application.

CM Live Deal's Android application

There were so many users requesting for mobile applications for our extensions CM Live Deal and CM Group Buying. So we decided to give a try: let's make one!

Most people wanted a hybrid mobile application powered by PhoneGap/Cordova because

  • It is easy to customize: if you know web development then you can customize the source code of the application easily.
  • It is low cost for maintenance: hiring a web developer or a PhoneGap/Cordova developer is cheaper than hiring an Android application developer or an iOS application developer.
  • One source code, run everywhere: your application can run on almost all mobile operating systems, this gives you great ability to reach wider user base, from Android, iOS (iPhone, iPad), to Windows Phone, BlackBerry, even Firefox phone or Ubuntu phone in future.
