We have been working hard on Joocial and JoomGap to cope with the opportunity and challenge of mobility. In social media management, there is a gap between content creation and social sharing that have to be covered to take advantage of its full potential.

Right now, we are releasing our second take on Joocial Composer App 8.3, and it comes with a new powerful feature: mobile content sharing.

Until now, Joocial and AutoTweetNG have integrated Joomla! CMS with social networks to publish content directly from the site. In this new development, Joocial Composer App is integrated with our extensions to manage posts and share them from the mobile device. This feature provides a whole new dimension to social management for Joomla!. In this new scenario, new business cases are supported. Firstly, a social manager can supervise and manage all posts from Joomla! (a frequent requirement from users whom prefer manual publishing instead of content auto-publishing). Secondly, content can be shared or re-shared at any time or from anywhere when an opportunity appears (e.g. a community event). Finally, all social networks are integrated via their own mobile applications, likewise:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google+
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest
  • WhatsApp
  • Any social network with a mobile app

In this road, we expect great many things. For instance: we are creating our Instagram and Pinterest channels to feed them right from our site with Joocial Composer App.

Happy Holidays from everyone here at Extly.  Wishing you happiness and success in 2016!

Extly in 2015: A Fantastic Year

In this year, we have achieved an overhaul to our extensions and released major versions of AutoTweetNG and Joocial 8 (including 60+ integration plugins) and XTDir 6 for SobiPro 1.2, JomSocial 4.1 and EasySocial 1.4. On top of this, we have released JoomGap framework to empower Joomla-enabled mobile apps and presented it in Joomla World Conference, Bangalore.

Based on JoomGap framework, we have been able to create our first mobile application for Joomla! and social networking, Joocial Composer App.

Additionally, we have revamped Extly's documentation site and support site, launched JoomGap main site and documentation site.

Now we are ready to keep on building. Looking forward to an exciting 2016!

XTDir 6 is the next major version of the greatest extension for SobiPro. In this release, we are featuring an extensive review for Bootstrap 3 and SobiPro 1.2. At this time, we are releasing XTDir 6 for SobiPro 1.2 Beta 1 and you can check it live in our demo site: http://demo.extly.com

  • Bootstrap 3: Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web. It has been adopted by many Joomla theme developers and it brings many improvements over the standard Bootstrap 2.3.2. Read More.
  • SobiPro 1.2: In this new SobiPro version Sigsiu's team concentrated their efforts to refine the front-end output of SobiPro.  To adapt the SobiPro layout to the used Joomla! template, SobiPro 1.2 has the ability to switch off loading its Bootstrap and Icon fonts and use the ones from the template instead. It also brings new icon fonts, which can be loaded. To adapt completely to Bootstrap 3 output, SobiPro now has the possibility to switch its generated HTML output to Bootstrap 3 format. Read more.
