Virtuemart Extensions available to download

vm-1.5-box.pngThese are the Virtuemart / Joomla / Joostina extensions we use when building our Virtuemart Ecommerce sites, please feel free to download and use them on your own site. These are all FREE extensions. If you find the extension useful to you then think about visiting the developer's site link and perhaps give them a donation. Giving them good feedback on Joomla extensions site is also a very nice thing to do... If you find this resource a useful one then please let us know by sending us an email.

This download area used to be mainly for Joomla 1.0/Joostina & Virtuemart 1.0 extensions.

Now there are several native Joomla 1.5 extensions here too.

joostina-logo.pngjoomla-glass.pngWe focus on Virtuemart 1.0 & 1.1 and Joomla 1.0/1.5 extensions because the Joomla Extension Directory (JED) has a policy of turning off older Joomla 1.0/VM 1.0 extensions, but we are more than happy to carry on offering some of them here.

(Many on-line shops are still using VM 1.0 as it is hell of a job to upgrade to 1.5 and VM 1... Occasionally I still build VM 1.0 sites, they are quicker to load and don't need as much tuning/optimisation unlike VM 1.1 shops on Joomla 1.5).

Also, a new CMS based upon Joomla 1.0 is coming into fashion, Joostina CMS is a Conent Management System that has backward compatibility with all Joomla 1.0 extensions. Joomla 1.0.15 on steroids!

If you find the extension useful to you then think about visiting the developer's site link and perhaps give them a donation. Giving them good feedback on Joomla extensions site is also a very nice thing to do... There have been 200,000 VM/joomla/steampunk free downloads so far from this site (and others) and not as many comments as you might hope. One in a thousand would be nice...

Please feel free to leave a comment if you find any of the downloads useful.

Joomla Installation Notes : Where it states a extension is for Joomla 1.0/Joostina or Joomla 1.5  then that extension is generally not for any other Joomla version. Not even legacy. You can try it and see if it works but the effect is unknown.

In general never install a legacy extension on a current site, not even in legacy mode, unless you know exactly what you are doing, it can slow down your site and can cause problems. It may work but that's up to you to find out on your test site only! not live!

Regardless of the extension, before you install anything, backup your site!

Virtuemart-1.1.9-product-specific-coupons.zip

This Virtuemart 1.1.9 extension allows you to create coupon codes that can be tied to specific products. For example, you have an item on sale in your shop at £5 - SKU spade01 with product id of 35. You can create a discount coupon of £4.99 which is tied to that specific product id (35). Entering the coupon code will discount only spade01, any other product will not receive the discount. When spade01 is removed from the cart then the discount coupon is coupon-codes.jpgalso removed. (The end result is that the product is then sold at £0.01, virtually free but the 1 penny cost allows the payment modules to recognise the sale as being valid)

The standard coupon functionality (gift/permanent coupons) is retained but the functionality is significantly improved by these changes. This additional functionality is missing from standard Virtuemart 1.1.9 It is absolutely essential functionality. In my opinion it should be part of core VM.

This is based upon some VM 1.1 changes found at this location: http://www.nandebayo.org/blog/?p=45 . All I have done is wrap them up and made them ready for installation under VM 1.1.9 These changes are presented to you now for your Virtuemart 1.1 shop. The changes may well work on older and newer versions of Virtuemart but they are untested on anything other than VM 1.1.9, there is a VM 1.1.2 version here:

The Virtuemart 1.0.15 version is here 

This is a change /hack to core VM. You cannot install it using the standard Joomla installation utility. The following files will need to be changed/ replaced with the files contained in this zipfile.

administrator/components/com_virtuemart/html/coupon.coupon_form.php
administrator/components/com_virtuemart/languages/coupon/english.php
administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/ps_coupon.php
administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/ps_cart.php

This is a very safe modification to do, if you do not understand php / sql do not proceed and even if you do, it is always best to backup your installation and database. It is an easy to job to backup your whole site. If you need help then contact us and you can engage us to explain how.

When the above files have been replaced then some Database changes are required. Using MyPHP admin from your control panel add the following fields to the table jos_vm_coupons:

     product_id, user_id, min_value, discount_type

The SQL commands you must type are:

     ALTER table jos_vm_coupons ADD product_id text
     ALTER table jos_vm_coupons ADD user_id text
     ALTER table jos_vm_coupons ADD min_value text
     ALTER table jos_vm_coupons ADD discount_type text

All of the fields should be text type. All of them should have default value as null and should be nullable.

If you want to see the coupon functionality in action it can be seen here: 

http://www.sugarclothing.co.uk

There are 'free gifts' which have coupon codes tied to them. Bear this in mind this is a LIVE site.

The Virtuemart 1.0.15 version is here

This is version 1.1 of the Pinterest mambot button for individual content articles that gives you the latest Facebook linking functionality. It has been designed specifically for Joomla 1.0.15/ Joostina 1.2 (ONLY) and you can see it here in action on this site. This Mambot was created by Dean Beedell in 2011 to provide that missing Pinterest linking functionality that you've found so hard to find for Joomlapinterest2.png 1.0.15. This Mambot allows you to add a Pinterest button to content items.

Let me now state that I no longer recommend using Pinterest as they damaged all 300 of my thumbnails. I now avoid it like the plague. Having said that this mambot works well and if you trust Pinterest go ahead and use it.

This mambot/plugin will automatically place a  Pinterest button at the top of your articles and Jdownloads. If your visitor has a Pinterest account then it will link the article to his/her Pinterest page. This functionality has been very hard to find for Joomla 1.0 but at last it is here. It does not work on Joomla 1.5... so don't try! This mambot is being developed now so keep revisiting to obtain the latest version. Now works with SEF URLS with an appended itemid.

Works with all Joomla Content, Com_Bookmarks and JDownloads 1.4.

Yet to be done:

o  Integrate it fully to work with Virtuemart.
o  Make the mambot recognise embedded video media using allvideos mambot
o  Change the mambot to recognise embedded images using pop up image mambot

If you like this plugin please consider getting in touch with me email me here to say how much you like the plugin. You can also make a donation by sending some money to this paypal account: donate using this address.

Remember, this is the only Pinterest bot for Joomla 1.0.15 and it has taken effort to develop this. 

 If you have any problems with this mambot just contact me here :

PS. This mambot plugin will not work in Joomla 1.5 + not even in legacy mode. It has been tested using Joomla 1.0.15 and Artio JoomSEF and it works in this configuration, it may well work with any untested configuration but that is up to you to find out. Feel free to request my assistance here.

This is a jDownload module that works with JDownloads 1.2-1.4 under Joomla 1.0.15/Mambo or Joostina 1.2 +.

mod_jdownloads_selective.jpgIt simply displays a selected list of downloads with an image and a star rating. The reason this module was written was to carry the ratings over from a closed site. All our widgets were hosted on the Yahoo gallery and we had 75,000 downloads and high ratings for each widget. When the gallery closed we lost this good reputation and so we carried it over to Jdownloads whilst we host the files on our site.

Instructions for operation:

Basic operation is this - You simply enter the download id into a list separated by a comma, ie. 45, 86, 77, 85 and the module will display star ratings and thumbnail images for these downloads. You can also select categories in the same way.

This module can be easily installed and configured but the advanced functions will require more experience and access to the jdownloads database tables through PHPmyadmin. If you don't have experience in this area then this module is not for you.

To enable the rating functionality you will need to make some simple modifications. The jDownload database will require two new columns in the jos_downloads_files table to handle the star ratings. They are simple int(11) columns and are easy to add to the end of the table. 

The star rating is calculated from the total number of stars allocated divided by the number of times a rating has been left. This gives the average star rating. The ability to give a download a rating is not yet present in this module and  this functionality is also not present in jdownloads so at the moment this is just a display of existing ratings carried over form another site.

I will make changes to allow ratings a little later.

To display a thumbnail you must have a thumbnail location loaded into the thumbnails column of the jos_jdownloads_files table in the database. Ensure the associated image is 31 x 30 pixels in size. You must put the image location in manually through PHPmyadmin because jdownloads does not actually allow you to add this information via the back end, the field is basically unused.

If you don't want to make the above changes the above functionality can simply be turned off and the module will display the selected download and the number of downloads so far.

You can see it in operation on this site with the ratings enabled and the images showing.
 
Note: Download item id - The id for each item download is easily obtainable from the the Jdownloads back end. It is the first column in the file list. You can also obtain it from your jdownloads_files table and extract the id from that table.

Is your Joomla site down again? This widget simply tests all your sites to see if they are up and running or down in a heap of dead bytes. This widget runs on your desktop regardless of whether it is MAC Os/X or Windows XP/Vista/ Windows 7 & 8+.

site-status.jpgIt also works with all websites and not just Joomla/Virtuemart CMS web sites. Simply add the URL of any site to the list and it will do the work for you.

It provides a simple running list of all the sites you specify. A simple interface allows you to add or delete sites as you require. Each site is checked by both an http request and a ping. If a site fails then it is flagged as being in error by both visual and audible means. 

Site tests are grouped into 'jobs', the running interval of jobs can be modified as can the pause between each individual site test, to allow for slow network connections.

Tests can be initiated manually and the alarm sounds muted by a simple yet elegant interface. This version of the multi-site status tool has a slightly steampunk design though this could be easily changed on request.

This widget is the enhanced version that has these extra improved capabilities:

1. save the site list list to a file
2. open site lists as required

Please donate towards a beer for us.

 

yahoo-widgets-logo.png As this widget uses the yahoo widget runtime it means it will run on Macs and Windows PCs with no changes whatsoever. You will need the Yahoo widget runtime for this widget to run. Get Yahoo widgets here.   

and the Mac version here: 
http://desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2x10a50/yahoo_widgets_4.5.2.dmg

This widget works with Windows XP SP3, it has been tested on Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS/X and it should work on these with no problems whatsoever. It has no specific Windows functionality and should work for Mac OS/X 10 too as long as the Yahoo Widget runtime engine is loaded.

The full instructions can be found here:

The basic widget is donationware - please send £5/$7.50, this goes towards beer, donate by paypal here:

I am sorry that this widget does not run on Linux, Yahoo never developed a desktop widget engine for Linux... A great pity.

JFotostack Portfolio Version: 1.0

Download >> Download Here

JFotostack Portfolio - a stacking and linking image gallery module for Joomla 1.0.15

jfotostack-example.jpgAn image gallery with a difference - images are shown as a series of clickable photographs stacked on top of each other. Images are easily grouped under a specific album by simply uploading your images into the appropriate album folder. You can see it in action on the front page of this site.

Album folders are located under the modules default folder: mod_jphotostack/tmpl/albums. The albums are named album1, album2... album15.  Upload a different group of images into each folder and then each album will display a different selection. The module comes with four albums enabled and populated by default. Just replace the images with your own.

A maximum of fifteen separate albums can be added to the slideshow. You can enable or disable each album as you require. Each album has its own thumbnail image in a common thumbnail folder  mod_jphotostack/tmpl/albums/thumbnails. Upload your thumbnails to this folder. The examples include a small thumbnail and a larger version for the pop-up.

The finished module should be placed in an inset position such so it appears across the top of the page. The module layout is generally horizontal rather than vertical so it best suited to a horizontally orientated position.

JFotostack Portfolio is based upon JPhotostack by Shaon Bahadur available from j-download.com. This new version has been modified to provide a lot more configuration options than Shaon's original. Also, Jphotostack was a gallery tool whereas JFotostack Portfolio is aimed at providing a portfolio tool that can link to another page. The new version was created by Dean Beedell of LightQuick but all credit goes to Shaon Bahadur for creating the original javascript that has largely been left untouched except for a few bugfixes and added functionality.

What are the differences? The original was simply a very pretty image gallery but this version has been modified to provide more configuration options so you can now specify the thumbnail size, the placement, width and number of galleries shown as well as the size of the stacked images in the gallery. The module also provides a configurable pop-up when you hover over the thumbnail complete with image and you can alter the position of the navigation buttons. The latest version will also allow you to link each gallery to an internal/external page allowing the module to act as a linking portfolio as well as an image gallery.

This is one of a few modules and mambots available from LightQuick that can be found here. We hope you enjoy using them. It has been designed specifically for Joomla 1.0.15/ Joostina 1.2 (ONLY). It does not work on Joomla 1.5... so don't try!  

The reason I created this is to provide a pretty portfolio tool under Joomla 1.0.15 that is easily configurable and quick to display/operate. You can see an example of it working on the front page of this site. It has been tested on on Firefox and IE, Opera and Safari. I will create a J1.5 version sometime soon.

Final reminder - this module may not work in Joomla 1.5 + not even in legacy mode but you are welcome to give it a try.

faceboook-big.pngThis Joomla 1.0.15/Joostina 1.2 (ONLY) mambot puts the Facebook Javascript Development Kit Code on your page. Why? because it is needed by Facebook's XFBML method when putting a like/recommend or share button on your website, as Facebook say: "The JavaScript SDK enables you to access all of the features of the Graph API and Dialogs via JavaScript. It provides a rich set of client-side functionality for authentication and rendering the XFBML versions of our Social Plugins."

For example if you have version 2.0 of the Facebook mambot adding the following code will add a Like button to your page. 

 < fb :like send="true" width="450" show_faces="true" />

Putting this code in the page (without the spaces around fb) would result in a nice pop-up "like this" appearing in the right place in your page. For more details, see the Like button documentation.

This mambot will also work with any other facebook API functionality you care to implement on your site. See here for Facebook examples:

http://developers.facebook.com/docs/ 

What does the mambot do? This mambot puts the Facebook required code at the bottom of a content item and it does it only once per page. You can see it the mambot in action on this site, just "view source" in your browser and search for the following code:

"window.fbAsyncInit = function"

When you find this line you will see the embedded code doing its job on each web-page on this site.

To make this mambot work you need to obtain a facebook API code. You enter this access token into the JSDK mambot configuration page. This id is used as an access token when your site interfaces with Facebook to show the various "like this" buttons as well as other FB provided functionality. To get hold of a ID code you will need to visit Facebook's "Create an App" page and register your site. 

This mambot works with version 2.0 of the Facebook mambot as provided on the lightquick download page below. NOTE: This Facebook "like this" mambot  provides various methods for displaying the "like this", one of which is the XFBML method. The JSDK mambot is required in order to support the XFBML method but not the oldshare nor the iframe method. 

If you think this is all a bit complicated blame Fecking Facebook, not me. I am happy to install and configure it all for you - just ask.

http://lightquick.co.uk/jdownloads/facebook-like-this-button-for-joomla-1.0-2.html

I will create a joomla 1.5 version of the JSDK mambot soon, it should be easy enough to do. This mambot does not yet work on Joomla 1.5 not even in legacy mode... so don't try!

BUGFIX  - A change to Facebook recently stopped this mambot from working. The bug has been fixed, download this latest version. The only file that needs to be replaced is facebookbot.php.

This mambot/plugin will automatically place a  facebook "like/share/recommend this" button next to your articles. If your visitor is logged into Facebook then it will link the article to his facebook account. This functionality has been very hard to find for Joomla 1.0 but at last it is here. It does not work on Joomla 1.5... so don't try! 

YOU NEED TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THIS MAMBOT - If you install without doing so then YOUR SITE WILL GENERATE AN ERROR ! - click here to read the instructions.

If you think this is all a bit complicated then blame Fecking Facebook, not me. I am happy to install and configure it all for you - just ask.

Works on Virtuemart, JDownloads and Com_Bookmarks !

This Mambot was created by Dean Beedell in 2011 to provide that missing facebook linking functionality that you've found so hard to find for Joomla 1.0.15. largefb.pngThis Mambot allows you to add a facebook button to content items as well as for Virtuemart and Jdownloads. You can add two types of link, the old share.php method which provides the white F in a blue box (where you have type in some text to share) or the new Facebook iframe method of "like this" where you just click on the button. Each has advantages over the other. The old method is easier to configure and works on all pages, the new methods are not so good for blogs and the xfbml method takes a little more configuration. They also don't work so well on blog pages consisting of a number of individual articles. You'll have to test and see. It will also generate the open:graph tags that are required for the current Facebook API.

OldShare - The old style of Facebook share is the white F in a blue box. When a user clicks the Facebook 'Share' button on a website, a 'Post to Profile' window appears to confirm the action.  It attaches the item that is to be shared and it provides an open text box allowing the user to explain why they've shared it.  That open text box is the primary difference between 'Share' and 'Like,'. This functionality is now obsolete and although it still works, Facebook may some day in the future turn this functionality off. So, why do we provide this? because the old functionality is easy for you to implement (you just turn it on) and you won't have to worry about any further configuration. Some people just like it. It also works better on blog pages consisting of a number of individual articles as it does not require the use of og: tags (you can only have one set of og: tags per page).

Iframe - The iframe method is current and you can switch from the old method to the new as you require or when Facebook make the old method redundant. Note that the iFrames method is not always compatible with all browsers. If you use the iframe method then you will need to enable and configure the facebook OG tags as per your requirement (the Open Graph tags are the means by which Facebook identifies your site). This mambot provides some easy methods for entering the OG information and some clever ways of getting the details automatically from the installed applications as required. The mambot also changes some of  the og:tags dynamically as page content changes, namely:

og:type
fb:app_id
og:type
og:site_name
og:description
og:title
og:url

Xfbml
- If you use XFBML method, you will have much more control over how the FB  will display and perform. The XFBML method is similar in operation to the iframe method but you will need to embed the JSDK code in the website. We provide another mambot to do this which will need to be installed and enabled. You will also need to visit Faecesbook's "Create an App" page and register your site. This provides you with an app id. This is used as an access token when your site interfaces with Facebook to show the "like this " buttons. You enter this access token into the JSDK mambot and the facebook mambot. When a user 'Shares' or 'recommends' an item, it appears on their Facebook Wall and is broadcasted to all of their friends via the Facebook News Feed.  This distribution is what makes the 'Share' button so powerful.  Let's say a user shares a link to a new restaurant that just opened nearby.  If they type a positive response in the open text field (for example: "This restaurant has the greatest hamburger in town!"), their friends may be inclined to visit the restaurant and try the food for themselves.

Note: You will need to install the XFBML Facebook JSDK mambot for Joomla 1.0 in order for the XFBML method to work. You can get that here: http://lightquick.co.uk/jdownloads/xfbml-facebook-jsdk-mambot-for-joomla-1.0.html

If you like this plugin please consider getting in touch with me email me here to say how much you like the plugin. You can also make a donation by sending some money to this paypal account: donate using this address.

Remember, this is the only bot for Joomla 1.0 and it has taken a lot of effort to develop this.

PS. This mambot plugin will not work in Joomla 1.5 + not even in legacy mode.

Steampunk Vintage Admin back-end for Joomla 1.5

This is an administrator template which gives you a steampunk look and feel in your Joomla 1.5 site.  The image below is Joomla 1.5.23!

steampunk-joomla-600.jpg

We've just created a quick hack of the standard Joomla admin template - Khepri. The hack involves swapping all the newer Joomla icons for some steampunk icons. A few changes to css complete the picture so that Joomla 1.5 starts to look a lot more Victorian!. Not to everyone's taste admittedly  but certainly to mine and to a select and superior few... The images below show the new look and feel, restrained but characterful. Now you can give your Joomla 1.5 site a 'makeunder' with a retro-Steampunk back end.

The template is not yet complete so understand this is a beta until complete, however it works in all aspects so feel happy to download and test.

I have just completed the 48 and 32 bit icons, now working on the 16 bit icons as used by the menus. I'll do a 1.7 version if anyone else is really keen? Feel free to comment!

This template installs in the usual way and when you are in the Joomla back-end just select the templates menu option and then click on administrator to view the choice of back-end templates. Simply select the steampunk template as your default and the icons will start to change. The following icons have been used in the production of this template.

The Joomla Extensions Directory (JED) doesn't like people reskinning the Joomla back-end. You have to add new functionality as well as reskinning so this template will never be released through the JED, you can only get it here. Please let others know this template exists by clicking on the Facebook like this button on the final download page.

 
synchronise-73.png wireless-73.png wireless-73.png remote-viewer.png
wireless-73.png wireless-73.png martian-photo-73.png

 

The icons that are 'upgraded' are all the main 48 bit icons that appear on the control panel and the 32 bit icons which sit in the toolbar on top of all the main options. The 16bit icons haven't been forgotten either. They are all included so the menu dropdowns all look just as familiar. The 48 bit icons have been replaced by larger 73 bit versions for extra clarity. Have fun!

Bundled with the template is a new quickicon module that replaces the default quick icons at the back end. It adds a few new icons to the back end main page.

Joomla 1.0 Admin back-end for Joomla 1.5.23

This is an administrator template which gives you the look and feel of Joomla 1.0 or Mambo in your Joomla 1.5 site.  The image below is Joomla 1.5.23!

joomla1.0-admin-template.jpg

If you've not used Joomla 1.0 before you won't be aware of the much more friendly and familiar back end that it has. This was adopted from the Mambo days. When Joomla 1.5 came out it "grew up" in that it created a much more corporate look. Well, the friendly look is back! Now you can give your Joomla 1.5 site a 'makeunder' with a Joomla 1.0 back end.

If you are a long-time Joomla 1.5 user then you'll actually find it more intuitive and easier to identify the icons as they are so much brighter and a lot clearer... If you are a Joomla 1.0 user and you have to upgrade your Joomla 1.0 site then make it easier for you to migrate yourself with this joomla 1.0 administrator template.

This template installs in the usual way and when you are in the Joomla back-end just select the templates menu option and then click on administrator to view the choice of back-end templates. Simply select the joomla10 template as your default and the icons will start to change.

Add New Content Frontpage Manager Section Manager Category Manager  Media Manager  Trash Manager  Menu Manager  Language Manager  User Manager

Virtuemart 1.0 Administrator Quick Icons for VM 1.1

vmquickicons.jpgDispleased with that Virtuemart 1.1 look and feel? Do you want the familiar feel of good ol' VM?

VmQuickIcons for Virtuemart is a module to add the Virtuemart 1.0 Icons onto the Joomla 1.5 Administrator cpanel (dashboard). It gives you all the Virtuemart icons straight from the Joomla backend. This administrator module has been modified to provide the easy-to-identify VM 1.0 icons instead of the hard-to-decipher VM 1.1 versions. Works with Joomla 1.5 and VM 1.1.

This is the module created by Joomspot with some simple changes. Instead of the standard VM icons we've added two that just weren't present in VM 1.0.

Installation is easy. Just install the module in the normal Joomla fashion. When you go to module manager, click on the administrator modules and set the module to appear in position 'icon'.

As well as appearing in your administrator control panel you can make these icons replace those displayed within Virtuemart itself. Just copy the icon PNG files into your Virtuemart 1.1 template folder and they will display correctly. The template folders look like this:

/public_html/components/com_virtuemart/themes/'your VM template here'/images/administration/dashboard

facebook-example.jpg READ ALL OF THIS BEFORE DOWNLOADING - This is the old version of the 1.0 Facebook "share this" button for individual content articles under Joomla 1.0.15/ Joostina 1.2.

Only install this old mambot if you want the old Facebook share method - but take note! Facebook may turn this method off soon.

I strongly suggest you download this instead. You can find the newer and better version here: http://lightquick.co.uk/jdownloads/facebook-like-this-button-for-joomla-1.0-2.html  

This facebook.png mambot will automatically place a small facebook share button next to your articles. If your visitor is logged into Facebook then it will link the article to his facebook account.

Note that this is not a like button but a share button... this is the earlier facebook style that does not support the iframe nor xfbml "like this". It has now been superceded by version 2.0 which does.

Remember, this is the only Facebot "share this" mambot plugin for Joomla 1.0 and it has taken a lot of effort to develop both this and the 2.0 version, so a donation is really appreciated.

mod_facebook_like_box_1_0

facebook-like.png

This is the second of only two Facebook Like Box modules for Joomla 1.0 / Joostina 1.2 that enables Facebook Page owners to attract and gain Likes from their own website. The Like Box enables users to see how many users already like this page, and which of their friends like it too.

This one is slightly better than the one from Nurte. It is more configurable and presents more detail about the happenings on your Facebook account.

This is an essential extension for all virtuemart shops, allows the site owner to place a facebook like button module on all pages  on the site.

Jolly good work from Vivociti.

Please note that this does NOT provide an individual "like this" on each and every article, it provides a basic "catch-all". If you want a facebook "share this" button on individual content then you can find it here:

mod_nurte_fb_likebox

facebook-like.jpgOne of only two facebook connectors for Joomla 1.0 / Joostina 1.2. This is the original one from Nurte.

This Joomla 1.0 module is intended for displaying a facebook like button plus an optional list of the people that like you... Not strictly a virtuemart module but a useful Joomla 1.0 extension that would be useful for any VM shop. 

It is an excellent facebook connector for Joomla 1.0 or Joomla 1.5 and frankly it is one of only a few available for Joomla 1.0! The daft developer has forgotten to flag it on the JED as being Joomla 1.0 compatible too - he really ought to fix that oversight! It is easy to configure, does what I want. I have run it on both Joomla 1.0 and Joostina and it works on both. I may use the J1.5 version on my 1.5 sites too. First class work from Nurte. Note the Joomla 1.5 version is not available here, you will have to got Nurte's site to get that.

Please note that this does NOT provide an individual "like this" on each and every article, it provides a basic "catch-all". If you want a facebook "share this" button on individual content then you can find it herefacebook.png:

 bot_auto_purge_cache

cache.jpg

A Joomla 1.0.15 / Joostina 1.2 plugin or more accurately a mambot (jambot). This bot/plugin will automatically remove expired cache files from the cache folder based on a configurable frequency from your website. It also can send an email alert when the removal occurs letting you know the number of cache files removed.

Here is an example message of the format that you will receive

Attention!

The Joomla! Auto Purge Cache Plugin has removed 23 expired files from the cache directory on the ReadingHomeSearch - the leader in relocating families into the Reading area website.

This message was generated by the Auto Purge Cache Plugin.

This is a fundamentally ESSENTIAL plugin for all Joomla sites with or without Virtuemart. Let me explain why - You need cacheing to enable the site to run as fast as it can. If you don't purge the cache then the folder contents can grow and grow until all your disc space is used up. If the cache can't create any more files then the cacheing system stops and your site hangs with a cache error which must be manually fixed.Until this

When a search engine spider crawls your site it can visit virtually every link on the site. This may/may not be beneficial as it gives the spider a complete map of your site. The problem is that when the spider has left, its visit to every possible link or combination of links will be mapped directly to a cached file, one for each link. This can lead to the creation of an enormous number of cached pages. With this bot working, the cache will be cleared at the frequency you dictate meaning these cached files will not survive  long enough to fill your disc allocation, hence your site will not go down.

This is the Joomla 1.0 version that Mike no longer lists on his site, quite why not is beyond me as there are thousands of Joomla 1.0/Joostina sites that could benefit from this mambot.

 MOD_CONTACTINFO 2.2 for Joomla 1.0 or Joostina

contact-information-module.pngThis Joomla 1.0 / Joostina 1.2 module is intended for displaying your contact information in different places besides just the normal contact page. Not strictly a virtuemart module but a useful Joomla 1.0 extension that would be useful for any VM shop. The module takes the contact information from the Joomla contact component for whatever ID is specified, then displays it where you choose in your template and it only displays the information you need according to the parameters you've set. It's also great for displaying different bits of your contact information in separate locations within your Joomla template. Using the Joomla copy module function, you can have several instances displaying different or identical information.

The original from Ed Culper has been modified slightly to deal with an installation bug and it also been changed to allow template styling using the module suffix.

Install this module in the usual manner.

Also enclosed in the module zipfile is an extra file. This is a modified version of admin.contact.html.php. The contact info module requires you to add the contact IDs of the contacts you want to display. This is all well and good for Joomla 1.5 but Joomla 1.0 has a problem, the backend contact list does not display contact IDs. The supplied admin.contact.html.php has been corrected to allow it to do so.

Just copy it in place of the original admin.contact.html.php which exists in the following folder :

/public_html/administrator/components/com_contact

 You can then view the contact IDs and use them to populate the module correctly.

Currency converter for USD, GBP and EUR Virtuemart 1.0.15

xe.jpg

Virtuemart XE Currency Convert is a virtuemart currency hack that allow you to convert between GBP, EUR and USD currencies by using the currency exchange rates as provided by www.XE.com. Changing the following files means that the whole shop will display prices in the selected currency. Requires Virtuemart 1.0.15. We have modified the original code to ensure that the exchange rate data can be read from the new XE site.
xe-currency-example.jpg This hack is not installable in the conventional Joomla sense. Using an FTP tool, backup the existing files, rename them and replace them with these new files:


/public_html/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/class_xe_curr_conv.php
/public_html/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/class_currency_display.php
/public_html/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/classes/ps_product.php

The zip also contains:

xe-module-example.jpgmod_xe_currency.zip  which has inside it:
/public_html/modules/mod_currency.php
/public_html/modules/mod_currency.xml

Extract the mod_xe_currency.zip file and use the standard Joomla module installation process to create a module in a prominent position.

 See it here in action live: http://www.goodwoodantiques.com

 

READ THIS: Be aware that the site where the currency feed is extracted from (www.xe.com) can change the format of its page from time to time (on average once every two years). This can have the adverse effect of changing the currency conversion rate. If this occurs then changes will need to be made. You can contact me and I will make the changes for you.  You can of course make the changes yourself, send them to me and I will be glad to share them with the world. The new version here will be kept updated as soon as I know of a change to the xe.com feed page. It is in your interests to let me know if things change!

If you want to be kept informed of any changes then contact me using the contact page.

multiusers.pngImport hundreds of users into Joomla! 1.0.15

This useful utility will create Joomla 1.0.15 users from a comma-separated or tab delimited file. A nice little utility originally created by Christopher Garvis the developer. He disappeared off the net one day and took his useful tool with him. I suppose you can call this abandonware... So here it is again. I have fixed a bug with csv file types and removed part of the functionality that was causing memory errors. It does the job it was designed to do.

As long as you can create a file with a CSV suffix each row in the following format:

CSV (*.csv)
anderson,matrix99,Mister Anderson,itsreallyquite@simple.co.uk

TAB (*.txt)
anderson matrix99 MisterAnderson itsreallyquite@simple.co.uk

This utility will be able to import and create your joomla users automatically. It will even email each user automatically. If the user already exists then you can choose to overwrite or fail, it is up to you.

It works on Joomla 1.0.15 and earlier versions, it also works on Joostina 1.2 (tested)

Don't install it on Joomla 1.5/1.6 and even more important, don't run it on Joomla 1.5/1.6! It  has a different table structure and damage could result. You have been warned!

Joostina CMS 1.2.0 stable Version: 1.2.0 stable

Download >> Download Here

do NOT download or install this item

Joostina is a dead CMS - it is an ex CMS, it has ceased to be, it has gone to meet its maker. It has shuffled off its mortal coil.

I do NOT recommend you install a new site using Joostina as there is no support and its future is highly uncertain. I was hoping this would be the future of Joomla 1.0.15 but it isn't. The download is here only for completeness sake and for future analysis.

 -oOo-

 

Joostina is Joomla 1.0.15 on steroids!

YOU CANNOT INSTALL THIS IN ENGLISH UNLESS YOU DOWNLOAD THE OTHER JOOSTINA COMPONENTS BELOW.

joostina-logo.png

Joostina is a development path for Joomla 1.0.15. Joostina is a fully-fledged content managent system based upon Joomla 1.0.15. When development of Joomla 1.0.15 stopped, replaced by Joomla 1.5, all development of the 1.0 framework came to a halt. All websites that used the Joomla 1.0 framework were forced to either upgrade to Joomla 1.5 or remain in a Joomla 1.0 limbo, becoming more and more out of date as time progressed. The problem was that the migration path to Joomla 1.5 required very large amounts of work, so much so that it was normally easier to build a new site from scratch. The result was that many sites remained in Joomla 1.0 with no possibility of future upgrade. 

joomla2.pngBut finally at last a fork of Joomla 1.0 has borne fruit with a community large enough to keep it going and an active and dynamic development community able to support it. Joostina CMS has come about based upon the good work put in by the Joomla development team into the Joomla 1.0.15 product. The Joostina team have taken the Joomla 1.0.15 code as the starting point and have made some core improvements to the administrator interface, enhancing cacheing and making the back-end language independent of the code. Joostina still runs applications/components/modules and mambot/plugins designed for Mambo and Joomla 1.0.15. It runs them natively and does so as well as Joomla ever did. 

joostina-admin-250.jpg This is not a Joomla installation and cannot be installed using the Joomla installer. It is a full installation of Joostina CMS. It can only be used to create a brand new and supportable CMS website that is backwardly Joomla 1.0.15 compatible website.

You can use this install to do a a clean installation or to upgrade an existing installation.

The upgrade procedures are here: Upgrading Joomla 1.0.15 to Joostina 1.2.

Note: Language difference:

russianflag-50.pngThese Russians are clever bu@@ers and have largely separated the language specific elements from the code. Therefore the back-end can now have any language you wish to provide. The developers, being Russian have created a Russian language version first with the english language component being in-development now.

So, although the release is stable, the language developement is incomplete so consider this to be in beta to all English-speaking users. The installation process is ENTIRELY in Russian although if you are familar with the Joomla installation process it is very easy to carry out. You will need to have ready:

database username:
database password:
database name:

unionflag-50.pngBe aware that the english.php in the delivery is incomplete but I am modifying it to complete the english translation. This is in progress. There is a modified english.php file that you'll need to download, this is available here :

As well as applying the English language file you will need to edit the administrator component menu. This is the old components menu which is now editable. You can change/edit the component list. As this has been provided in Russian you will need to edit it manually and translate it into English - I can help in this!

Joostina ENGLISH Language Translation

joostina-flags.pngThis is an updated english.php file that replaces the version in the joostina stable CMS 1.2.0 zipfile. This will largely resolve the translations from Russian to English. Be aware that the sample content and category information supplied with the default installation is still in Russian and so I advise you to either delete it all or not bother to install sample data.

The language translation is incomplete (85%) but this file makes the system eminently workable.

Put it in the \language folder using your ftp client.

As well as applying this file you will need to use the "edit administrator component menu" option to change the remaining component and icon names in to english. Joostina provides the functionality of editing the icons and menu options from the front end. This is great but it does mean a tiny bit of manual labour! If you need assistance in this contact me.

The following image shows Joostina straight out of the box with the translation file applied and the administrator component menu edited to English. The control panel  icons are editable in Joostina and in the demo below you can see that I have copied these over from Joomla 1.0 so I have a familiar interface (the default Joostina icons are more like those for Joomla 1.5).

Joomla 1.0 to Joostina 1.2 upgrade conversion tool

joomla-joostina-translation.pngThis is a component for Joomla 1.0 that can be installed via the standard Joomla component installer. It provides the ability to update the various databases to underpin the extra functionality provided by Joostina.

When the component is installed it creates a link on the component menu. Clicking on this link will run the conversion process. It has been tested on Joomla 1.0.15 and it works. You should run it only ONCE then remove the component using the standard Joomla component uninstall process.

The upgrade process is described here and should be used in conjunction with the upgraded English.php and various other easy hacks. To be successful you MUST read the installation instructions here.

Now you can move Joomla 1.0 static content into a category!

icons.jpgJoomla 1.0 was pretty poor by not allowing you to move content from static content to a content category by default. Once you've created loads of static content and you realise you want to categorise a chunk of it then you're stuffed!

Previously, the only way I knew of doing it was to go into myPHPadmin and look up the table joscontent and change the secid and catids. This was painful and inelegant.

I have made some changes to some core Joomla files that will allow you to move content from within static content into other joomla content categories. It is not an installable zipfile, just unzip the files and copy them into the correct folder.

These are the amended files:

admin.typedcontent.html.php
admin.typedcontent.php
toolbar.typedcontent.html.php
toolbar.typedcontent.php

The files should go here:

/public_html/administrator/components/com_typedcontent

move_f2.pngThis will add a "move" icon to the static content page. Something always missing from Joomla 1.0.15 that has now been provided at last. I use it on all my joomla 1.0.15 sites.

JoomlaWorks "Latest Tweets" Module for Joomla! 1.5.x - Version 1.1+

tweetsmodule.jpgThis is the latest tweets module for Joomla 1.5. It displays a twitter feed of the last 'x' tweets from a particular account. Very useful for keeping your news page updated and very useful for SEO purposes.

It has now been modified to ensure all the links open in a new window. If you clicked on a link in the old version then it would open up the new site in the same window, taking your visitor away from your site. This is was a bit silly. The new version allows your visitor to browse the twitter link and when he is complete and closes the window he then returns to your site.

JoomlaPraise Submitmailer 1.0.19 (Mod.)

stamp.jpg

The Automatic Email Notifier for Joomla 1.0 (only) is a modified form of the mambot previously known as JoomlaPraise Submitmailer 1.0. This is not a Virtuemart extension but a very useful one for all Joomla 1.0 sites (only) with or without Virtuemart.

mambot_jp_submitmailer_10_v19.zip  is the correct zipfile for this plugin. We had the wrong zipfile here for a week, after the site hack, sorry about that!

This mambot for allows you to send an automatic email to a user list every time an article is modified or created from the front end. It will email all registered users or just administrators as you choose. The email can contain the article subject, author, section, category, introtext and full URL of the article.

This mambot has just had a bug fixed. When creating a new article from the front end it was not identifying the item id correctly for all menu items. You may want to reload this now if you have downloaded this mambot recently. 

The receipt of an email encourages the recipient to revisit the site to view the latest article update. A Full URL can be incorporated into the sent email so that the user sees a clickable link taking him directly to the article.

The original SubmitMailer mambot from JoomlaPraise did not allow you to email all the registered users on your site, just the admins, so some minor changes have been made to incorporate this extra functionality. Note: You can also email a list of email addresses separated by a delimiter.

The original SubmitMailer mambot from JoomlaPraise did not allow  a full URL to be included in the email text so some minor changes have been made to incorporate this extra functionality.

JoomlaPraise removed their original free GNU version from their site and started charging for version 2.0. So you now have a chance to download the original version 1.0 here for free. It works and does the job!

This mambot can send an email with the following sort of customisable content:

MMS BLOG 2.3.2 Automatic Joomla 1.5 Updates by Email mms.png

This is the Joomla 1.5 version modified to make it more secure. The original was flagged as a security risk as there was a problem where input passed to the "controller" parameter was not properly verified.

The relevant file has been modified to be more secure. It now sanitises input to prevent a file inclusion vulnerability.

It has also been modified to remove a bug or two.

This really is beta - I have NOT really tried it at all on any site yet. So please try it only on test sites and not on a production or live site. I'd love your feedback. Does it do the job or not? Does it work or not?

Back to the description... There are many times when you need to get content to the site straight away and you are not anywhere near a PC or an internet connection. If you have a mobile phone then you can get content on the site.

This component is a useful tool for all information portals. If you want to add content to a site blog automatically via email or using the multimedia messaging system (MMS) from your mobile phone, then you can send text, images or embedded videos to the site.
