googlebaseWe are happy to make a new release of our GooglebaseXML product feed for Joomla and Virtuemart. Version 4.6.20 includes some useful new features:-

  • It adds support for submitting a feed by manufacturer;
  • It makes the Google attribute tags translateable (more information here);
  • Adds support for bulk pricing, now if there is a minimum purchase amount the price will be calculated for the minimum purchase amount,
    see https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/6324371?hl=en-GB&ref_topic=6324338
  • When bulk pricing is used, the feed automatically supplies the unit pricing measure, and unit pricing base measure attributes, so that Google can display the price per unit

The effect of the last two new features is that the feed can be used for products supplied in bulk, for business to business advertising.

The new release also fixes an issue with shipping rate calculations that meant shipping methods were not included in the feed.

New Version 4.6.20 of GooglebaseXML Shopping Feed

We have a new release of our popular Master User plugin. This plugin for Joomla allows administrator users to log into the front end of their site as another registered user, and is compatible with Joomla 2.5.and 3.

The new release, version 2.3.0, includes some improved error handling. The interesting thing is that by popular demand we have added a feature to set a session variable when a user logs in as a master user, so that other extensions can pick this up. You can read more on the download page.

We have a new release of our AS3 Cloud File Manager extension. The latest release is 2.5, and now supports Dropbox as well as Amazon S3. This extension allows you to manage your cloud hosted files through your Joomla admin, and make them available as download packages, either for free, for restricted Joomla user groups (through the standard Joomla ACL), or for sale.

If you want to sell your files, our paid download plugin for Joomla and Virtuemart works with the AS3 Manager extension to allow you to do this.We have a new release of this plugin available too: version 1.7 adds support for selling Dropbox files as well as Amazon S3, by selling  AS3 Manager Manager download packages as Virtuemart products. The Spiral Download  plugin is designed to allow you to offer paid downloads as products for sale in Virtuemart, by allowing you to attach the download package to the product as a custom field. It allows you to restrict either the number of downloads, the time limit on downloads, or both.

Extensions Now Supporting Dropbox

We are pleased to release a new version 1.5.0 of our extension Amazon Shopping Cart, and version 3.8.0 of our AmazonWS content plugin for Joomla.

amazon-logo2-medThe release of the Shopping Cart adds some important new features.

The main improvement to the cart is that we have added a new ability to track sales. Whenever a user clicks the button to check out through Amazon, the value of the sale is recorded, plus the user id if they are logged in. The sales can be viewed in the Joomla admin and downloaded as a CSV file. This can be very useful if you want to reward your users for buying through your site, or if you just want to keep a track of sales. You can read more about the sales tracking feature here.

To summarise the new features, these are:-

  • A bug fix that stops the ajax cart loading additional styles which can affect the page layout. Strictly this is a bug caused by some site templates, but we have found a way to stop it happening anyway
  • A new option to use a bootstrap modal instead of a widget kit dialog for the cart dialog - this is useful in case of javascript conflicts with the cart dialog
  • An option to require the user to log in or create an account on your site before checking out
  • The new sales tracking and administration. You can read more about the sales tracking feature here.

We are pleased to release a new version 1.4.0 of our extension Amazon Shopping Cart, and version 3.7.0 of our AmazonWS content plugin for Joomla.

amazon-logo2-medThese are maintenance releases, adding some new features:-
