To renew our documentation, we have reviewed the content and relaunched the docs site with a new design and technology. It is powered by VuePress, and it is working amazing fast. 

The new documentation comes in hand with the release  XT Search for Algolia v1.4. XT Search is our brand new solution to empower the user experience of an Instant Search, powered by Algolia service. It just works to create an awesome search experience. Check it in our demo site, or on this leading case. The latest version comes with multi-connector sitewide search and connectors for Joomla Articles, K2, SobiPro and JCalPro (more connectors are coming, check the roadmap here).

In this screenshot, the new search engine of the documentation is shown working amazingly fast.

Facebook App Review Deadlines Approaching

Facebook App Review Deadlines Approaching


You have 8 days to submit your apps for App Review to retain access to Facebook Platform APIs before the August 1, 2018 deadline.


After the Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data scandal, Facebook has started a series of breaking changes to improve data protection and focus on the advertisement business.

Until now, only the new Apps have been required to approve the App Review. Before August, ALL apps must apply for an App Review to retain the current permissions. 

  • August 1, 2018: deadline to re-request: Facebook Login permissions outside of email and default; access to Pages API, Groups API, Events API, Messenger API, Instagram API, and Business Manager API. Reference:  App Review Deadlines Approaching

Technically, the Facebook platform has not changed, so there is no immediate need to upgrade the sites. However, Facebook is going to require the approval of each use case to access the platform services. The approval process takes time; we recommend submitting the App Review in the next days.

To help you in the task at hand, we have prepared this detailed tutorial with the sum of experiences submitting App Reviews.

Be sure to prepare the materials required in the App Review with the latest AutoTweet or Joocial versions; they contain minor Facebook branding adjustments to comply with the requirements.

Should you have additional concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.


 

SUMMER SALE. 15% OFF - Coupon SUMMER18
Valid until 15th August 

Today we are incredibly excited to introduce Joocial 9 Beta 1 release. It marks the point where the new software is fully operational. All the moving parts are defined and working as expected. We have completed the architectural definitions and implementation of the core.

Joocial 9 aims to provide a better toolkit for post sharing running everywhere: iOS, Android, Desktop, and on the web as a Progressive Web App. Joocial 9 will offer a consistent user interface to handle social content management on the underlying platform in a portable, cross-platform way. That means the Joocial app will work no matter where it runs.

Joocial 9 Beta 1 is here! - New User Interface

It is still not ready for production, and it can only be installed side by side along a Joocial 8 installation. However, the Beta version allows testing with the new concepts that are coming in the next major release of our extensions.

Joocial 9 Beta 1 is available for testing, and it can be downloaded here

Today we are incredibly excited to introduce Joocial 9 Alpha 3 release of our future hub for CMSs. This is mainly an internal milestone, but it marks the point where the new software is fully operational. All the moving parts are defined and working as expected.

Joocial 9 aims to provide a better toolkit for post sharing running everywhere: iOS, Android, Desktop, and on the web as a Progressive Web App.

Introducing Joocial 9 Alpha 3, the extension and the mobile app

Joocial 9 will offer a consistent user interface to handle social content management on the underlying platform in a portable, cross-platform way. That means the Joocial app will work no matter where it runs.

Features of Joocial 9

Joocial 9 has some handy features:

  • A New Usage Scenario for Joomla optimized to be intuitive.
  • The same user experience on desktop and the mobile app for Android and iOS.
  • A Simple Plugin model (no more optional plugins).
  • Translations will be provided in the following languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese Brazil, Dutch and Polish. More languages will be added after the initial release.
  • Rebuilt on strong quality assurances (automated end to end testing) 

That’s a long way of saying there are cool features in Joocial we think our users will appreciate.

Screenshots

As a glimpse of how it is working today in our testing sites, in the following screenshots, we can show how the new Composer and the Channels are managed in the new user interface:

Migration?

No migration. The new version is going to be fully compatible. It will be installable side-by-side with the current version 8. We expect to support both versions at least for one year.

Deprecations

In the upcoming release, we are going to remove features that were defined ages ago, they have been with us for years, but they are no longer actively used.

  • Plugins and Settings will be removed/simplified.
  • Paywall Mode
  • Community Auto-Posting
  • Front-End User Channels
  • Jootool, Front-End Management. The whole extension will be available on the front, back and in the mobile app.

We are going to need your feedback!

Today’s alpha release represents more than one year and a half of hard work over thousands of commits, and we’re just getting started. Joocial 9 is not production ready yet, but we hope to be at that point soon. For Joocial 9 to move forward, we are going to need your feedback and testing.

In the next months, we are going to publish a series of Beta versions for testing. To simplify the testing, the new Joocial 9 will be installable side-by-side with the stable version. So, you will be able to test the new shiny feature along the current installation.
