We have been working really hard with EasyBlog 5 and while we were optimizing the Javascript portion of EasyBlog 5, we have just realized that Joomla is not able to add gzip compression on most of the scripts which are included in our extension. This results into the file having to be larger than usual. Since most of these Javascript files are served through it's own absolute URL, the only way to ensure that these files are served with gzip compression is by adding the block of codes below in y ...

Canonical URL and EasyBlog Duplicate URLs are not very 'SEO friend' and it's an annoyance for the maintenance team to fix. You can put the canon tag in each link but this would be a hassle if you're maintaining a huge sites with lots of links, categories, and whatnots. To solve this issue, our friends at CMSPlugins have created a simple (yet effective) plugin named "Canonical URL". The plugin can, and will, save us lots of minutes and hours by fixing any duplicate URLs inside our website. Apart from that, Canonical URL c ...

Seeing that it's a very, very huge feature, it will take a lifetime for me to blog everything about it. I'll take one 'mini features' (if you may call it) to talk about: the new composer's text editor.  Resiz ...

EasyBlog 5 Development Progress As most of you have already knew, EasyBlog 5 has become a part of the our daily routine. Balancing between development and support is very taxing for most of us after we introduced EasySocial last year.   Our primary goal during the development phase of EasyBlog 5 is to push it out as fast as we could so that we could focus on our other offerings. In fact, our initial planned release date for EasyBlog 5 is on November 2014. However, after tons of trial and errors,  we wouldn't want t ...
