JoomlaWorks Blog

JoomlaWorks is developing and supporting some of the most respected and popular extensions in the Joomla! community, including the groundbreaking K2, AllVideos, Simple Image Gallery and Frontpage Slideshow. Since 2006 we have developed more than 26 extensions for the Joomla! CMS, all of which have been used in hundreds of thousands of Joomla! sites across the world. Late 2010, our extensions had been downloaded more that 4 million times, out of which AllVideos and Simple Image Gallery had more than 1.5 million downloads each and K2 more than 350,000! Innovation and the open source philosophy are the two things that motivate us!
  1. AllVideos v5.0.0 released - now with web-native media playback

    We have just released a major update to AllVideos, version 5.0.0, for Joomla versions 1.5 to 3.x.

    It introduces web-native media playback with no 3rd party dependencies.

    Here's what's been added or changed in this new release of AllVideos:

    • AllVideos now supports web-native media only (for self-hosted files) and uses browser-native playback controls, without a single 3rd party dependency. AllVideos will now load a single CSS file for its template and a single JS file to assist in self-hosted media playback - a total of less than 7KBs. As such, both Clappr and JW Player have been removed from AllVideos, as well as any helper JS files that were previously utilized for media playback (e.g. for QuickTime).
    • Modern media playback includes video and audio formats like H.264/MPEG-4 (.mp4/.m4v/.m4a), WebM (.webm), Ogg Theora Vorbis (.ogg/.ogv/.oga), MP3 (.mp3), WAVE PCM (.wav) & FLAC (.flac). AllVideos will also playback .avi and .mkv files as they are used as container formats for H.264/MPEG-4 most of the times. Every other format that was previously supported by AllVideos (e.g. Flash Video, QuickTime or Windows Media), will now appear as a link to download the file as browsers no longer support playback directly or require plugin activation to do so. By utilizing modern media playback only, we ensure that AllVideos can be used as your go-to solution for media embedding across any device.
    • By using web-native media formats in AllVideos, we can now do cool stuff like auto-generate poster/preview images for videos, without the need for server-side software (like FFMPEG). If you already uploaded your own poster/preview images, well, don't worry as they will still take precedence over the auto-generated ones.
    • Added support for custom poster/preview images for both video and audio utilizing the .webp format. This means you can now use all 4 web-native image formats for previews (jpg/png/gif/webp). For added fun, try using animated GIFs as your media preview :)
    • Support for small 3rd party video providers has been dropped, as most are now either defunct or using a service like YouTube for serving content (e.g. Funny or Die or GodTube). This means that AllVideos will now support only the 6 major media providers: YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, Facebook (videos), Flickr (videos) and SoundCloud.
    • All 3 templates in AllVideos have been re-configured and tested across all device types. The "Responsive" template is of course still the default template when you install AllVideos for the first time.
    • A new option has been added that allows you to limit the maximum width responsive media can occupy. This will come handy with sites that extend beyond 1200px in width as media can be limited to a percentage of the page's width or to a fixed pixel size (e.g. no more than 1000px width for media playback).
    • You can now allow your visitors to directly download a self-hosted video file (previously possible for audio files only).
    • The options have been significantly simplified with the removal of Clappr & JW Player as well as the removal of QuickTime support.
    • AllVideos continues to be PHP 5 to 7 compatible, for Joomla 1.5 to 3.x. There is really no reason to ditch support for PHP 5 and/or Joomla 1.5/2.5 when it's easy to maintain support for them. Neither security nor performance are sacrificed either way.

     

    DEMO

    The JoomlaWorks demo site has been updated to use the latest AllVideos release. See here: http://demo.joomlaworks.net/allvideos

    DOWNLOAD

    You can download this version by visiting the extension's page at: https://www.joomlaworks.net/allvideos/

    UPGRADING

    If you use the latest Joomla 3.x releases (or Joomla 2.5), this new update will appear in the Joomla extension updater. If you're using Joomla 1.5, you can simply upload the new version and it will overwrite the old one. After that step, visit the plugin's parameters page, check if everything is OK or adjust as needed and save the parameters.

  2. Kiji & nuModusVersus updated to v1.1.0 - sunsetting NewsWorth, Nokkori, Tamashi & The Conversationalist

    Both Kiji & nuModusVersus have just been updated to v1.1.0. These are bugfix and feature-improvement releases.

    Here's what's been added or changed in both Kiji & nuModusVersus with the release of v1.1.0:

    • Lots of K2 related fixes/improvements including: use the new K2 modal introduced in v2.9.0, remove Google+ sharing, proper checks for HTTPS in user profile URLs, removed itemform.php overrides.
    • Reformat mixed HTML/PHP on all template files so it's easier to edit them.
    • Checked for PHP 7.3 & Joomla 3.9.x compatibility.
    • Removed Alexa verification field (deprecated service) and jQuery version selector (previously applicable in Joomla 2.5).
    • Update ace.js (the HTML/CSS/JS/PHP editor used in custom code blocks) to its latest version
    • Lots of other minor fixes/improvements overall.
    • Each demo site now comes with caching set to use the "file" driver for maximum compatibility with hosting providers.

    If you are using Joomla v3.4+ and K2 v2.8.0+ we highly recommend you update to the latest release of each template.

    At the same time, we're sunsetting 4 of our templates: NewsWorth, Nokkori, Tamashi & The Conversationalist

  5. SocialConnect v1.9.0 released

    SocialConnect v1.9.0 has just been released. It mainly improves compatibility with Twitter and LinkedIn API updates (either already in force or soon to be enforced).

    Here's what's been added or changed in SocialConnect with the release of v1.9.0:

    • Updated for recent Twitter API changes that relate to login in SocialConnect. Twitter now requires URLs without parameters to use as callbacks when verifying login information. This means that you can either create a menu item pointing to the SocialConnect login form (e.g. https://domain.tld/socialconnect) and then use https://domain.tld/socialconnect/login/twitteroauth (basically your SocialConnect URL + "/login/twitteroauth") as the callback URL under "App Details" on Twitter OR you can use the menu-less SEF URL which is https://domain.tld/component/socialconnect/login/twitteroauth.
    • Updated for recent LinkedIn API changes (namely API v2). Existing LinkedIn apps using v1 of their API will work for some time to come, but new apps registered will only utilize v2 of their API and this release makes sure everything works as expected. The callback URL for logins should also bewithout parameters (although not explicitly forbidden for now by LinkedIn) as in the case of Twitter. So use something like https://domain.tld/socialconnect/login/linkedinoauth if you have a menu pointing to the SocialConnect login form with "socialconnect" as the menu item alias OR you can just use the menu-less SEF URL which is https://domain.tld/component/socialconnect/login/linkedinoauth.
    • Added 2 new options under "Advanced Settings" ("Enforce HTTPS" & "Enforce absolute URL when posting to social") which address edge cases where social login failed (namely in sites behind CloudFlare that utilize "Flexible SSL") or auto posting failed (shared URL was relative instead of absolute). 
    • Added update notification in SocialConnect's dashboard (a missing feature for Joomla 1.5 based sites).
    • Improvements in the backend component's UI.
    • Various dependency updates.

    If you are using Joomla v3.8+ we highly recommend you update to this newest version for better compatibility.
