We have a new extension for Cobalt, the content construction kit for Joomla by MintJoomla.com. Our Cobalt Featured Items Carousel module allows you to display your choice of Cobalt fields in an attractive carousel. The module has been designed exclusively to work with Cobalt, and can render all fields natively.
The layouts available include a simple carousel, plus a carousel with image sliders. There is an optional auto-scroll feature.
We are happy to release version 2.0 of our image generator component. This is a free, GPL licensed extension for Joomla which allows you to dynamically resize and compress your site images. It includes a plugin framework, with plugins to add a watermark, and to apply dynamic resizing to all your article images.
For the first time it is now compatible with Joomla 3.0 as well as Joomla 2.5. There is also a legacy version available for Joomla 1.5.
We are happy to announce the release of a new version 4 of our GooglebaseXML component for Joomla 2.5 and Virtuemart 2.0.x. This component generates a product feed for your Virtuemart store which can be submitted to Google shopping through the Google Merchant Centre.
The component is designed to allow you to match Google's product feed specification exactly, so that Google should accept your feed without problems. The latest version is designed to make it even easier to generate multiple feeds, making it straightforward to submit feeds to Google even for very large sized online stores.
Joomla 3.1 is now available.
It is our plan to support Joomla 3 with all our extensions that currently support Joomla 2.5. We are currently in the process of updating them.
Our latest release for Joomla 3 is our NewsTab module, our module which allows you to display extracts from your articles as a series of tabs, in a format popular with news sites.
Our current extensions which support Joomla 3 are now:-
We plan to release further 3 compatible extensions shortly.
One of the features that we liked from the old versions of Virtuemart 1.1x was the product snapshot plugin. This was a Joomla content plugin that allowed you to embed Virtuemart product information directly into a Joomla article.
Inspired by this we decided to recreate the plugin for Virtuemart version 2 and Joomla 2.5. We are now releasing our VM2 Product Snapshot Plugin in two versions: a basic free version, and a commercial version with lots of extra features.
Both versions allow you to optionally embed a product thumbnail, plus description, price and add to cart button. The commercial version comes with a variety of extra layouts, the ability to display additional images for the product, and a more sophisticated add to cart button.
