JomSocial 2.2 Beta on Joomla 1.6

VIEW CREATED SITE

The install process is quite simple. See the video Above for a video about it and a tutorial on how to install and use. It is about 9:30 mins long. I had to make this for a class at Utah Valley University for my web content management class, DGM 3740 Content Management.

JomSocial is one of the best Joomla extensions out there for building a social community. It is similar to facebook in a lot of ways and is cool because it is yours. You can customize it and add on to it. There are tons of extensions and developers out there making things for Jomsocial.

JomSocial.com is running a special $1 tryout right now that lets you test drive it and install it on your Joomla powered site.

OR YOU CAN BUY IT NOW!

I use this for two websites http://www.iaskate.com and http://www.where2skate.com

JomSocial 2.2 is not out yet but because I have an account with them I can download the Beta for 2.2 which they are still working on.

FOR THIS INSTALL I RAN INTO SOME PROBLEMS:

  1. When you input an event and click save it goes to an error page, but the event is actually saved
  2. The regular sign-up is also acting strange. Kind of like the calendar, when you check your email for the conformation link to activate your account it goes to an error page. The only way to activate a new account is manually through the back end
  3. Sometimes Joomla will also just straight up block the admin from accessing the backend? Really weird, and the only way to get back into the account is to edit the database with php myadmin by changing block user from 1 to 0
  4. Also the Facbook Connect part is not working correctly either. It is really weird.

PACKAGES I USED TO INSTALL:
Joomla 1.6
Vanilla WooTheme for Joomla 1.6 (You will need a membership with yootheme)
JomSocial Beta (You will need an account with JomSocial)
