EasySocial 2.2.6

EasyArticles Stable Released

EasyArticles Stable Released

Yup, it's finally here. We now proudly present to you the stable release of EasyArticles. This is actually one of the fastest ever new product release that we have done. As most of the highlights were previously shared here, allow me to brief you through some of the highlights in EasyArticles.

 

Effortless Composer 

Composer

​I believe this feature to be one of the main highlights in EasyArticles. Besides having such an amazing and simple composing platform, it's also equipped with the essentials for any content type out there, such as enriched media previews for Facebook and Youtube, geolocation which is supported by Google maps, Joomla custom fields, convenient publishing options and many more.


Powerful Media Manager

Media Manager

​Adopted from EasyBlog, this powerful and easy-to-use media manager is specially useful for authors and editors alike to easily manage, organize and store media files within Joomla. Besides all those great features, it was raved by many of our users that it's a better media manager compared to Joomla's.


Productive Workflows

Workflows

​One of the common downside for Joomla articles is not having a proper workflow. To further enhance the composing and publishing experiences in EasyArticles, authors and editors could now moderate or supervise post submissions and collaborate on the site effortlessly.


Post Templates

Quick Post Templates

Post templates in EasyArticles will come in useful to those who works on multiple posts continuously. Not only does it save time, it also comes in handy when your site has wide a variety of posts.



Notifications 

Push Notification - OneSignal
Email Notification

​Do you need your audience to be aware of the release an article, perhaps a long waited one that has just published on the site? EasyArticles was created to have the best of both worlds. Your audience will no longer miss out on another important article. 


Responsive Design

​All EasyArticles goodies on your handheld devices, whether you're abroad, or away from your PC. EasyArticles responsive design allows you to edit, publish, assign categories, approve or reject submissions on the fly.



Front-end Dashboard

Categories
Articles Listing

Need a quick overview of EasyArticles? Site moderators will have a bird's eye view of some statistics with regards to your audience. On top of that, performing actions such as managing articles, categories, tags, approvals and rejections could be done directly from the front-end of EasyArticles. How convenient eh? 


Content Importer

Content Importer
Sometimes it could be tough for authors to keep creating content on your site especially when you have a site with a larger target audience. Because we know that it is not easy to get authors for your site, EasyArticles built in content importer allows you to setup multiple RSS feeds to import content from different sites. 

Templates Friendly

​With EasyArticles, it allows you have the privilege to choose from the different well-known template providers when choosing a template for Joomla. Get ready to be spoilt by choices!


Social Media Auto-Posting

Social Media Auto Posting

Managing multiple social media accounts could be such a hassle. With EasyArticles, authors could now share content across their social media platform such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn whenever a new article is being published on the site. 


3 Days Special

To celebrate this release, we would like to offer a free Komento (worth $35) license with every EasyArticles purchase. Don't let this chance pass you by! :)

*P/S: This offer is valid till August 12, 2017. The FREE Komento license would require manual activation, get in touch with us along with your order reference, we will then update the FREE Komento license to your account.

Thank you! Will check

Nice,

and congratulations on yet again an other great Stackideas product. Keep up your very satisfying work

Now waiting eagerly for EasySocial 2.1

 
  1. Mark    Jean

Thank you Jean!

 
  1. joy

the background, how is that made and will it work for all templates?

 
  1. Mark    joy

Hm, not too sure which background are you referring to here eh? Yes, since EasyArticles does not manipulate the output of the contents generated by Joomla articles, it works across all templates as long as your Joomla template has styling applied on Joomla articles

 

Hi, I bought EasyArticles less than a week ago. Is there a chance I can also get the free Komento License? I mean... c'mon!

 

Hi Alexius,

We have already responded to your ticket

Congrats on the new release of EasyArticles! Looks absolutely fantastic! A few things to adjust:

1. When viewing pending posts the review link shows you the article, however from that article there is no way to approve the article. This means that the moderator must click back to the previous page view in order to review the article. In addition to this sometimes the view expires when going back to the dashboard (adding an approve button on the article actions menu or at the top would fix...

2. Cover photos seem to smash with the content as seen here:
http://easyarticles.stackideas.com/articles/100-climbing-bonanza

3. There seems to be a time delay with the actions menu (print, email, edit menu) when clicking it. I'm pretty sure it's not my computer due to multiple tests and seeing it run quickly in standard Joomla.

Thanks HMED

Hi,
I'm looking for joomla custom fields, a way to enter articles with these fields.
A priori it is possible with this extension but I do not see a demo for it.

1/ Simpler for me, I would like as administrator set the category (eg video) and that the member is not choosing a model.
2/ In such a simple way, give the author the opportunity to list his articles or articles according to the ACL group of which he is a member.
Is that possible?

 
  1. Mark    herve

Hey Herve,

It is possible to enter custom fields in EasyArticles when you are composing it. Unfortunately, EasyArticles does not render articles on the front end. You would need to use Joomla articles to render these listing

 
  1. herve

Hello,
Do you have access to a back office demo? Example in front-end?
Thank you for answering other questions 1/ & 2 /
Regards

 
  1. Mark    herve

Hm, we didn't really set up a demo for the back end since most of the management is done on the front end. You could always login on the front end at http://easyarticles.stackideas.com/ to try it out

 
  1. Josh Lewis    Mark

I think what herve is getting at is that many of us want to see the component settings. We know a lot of extension demo's out there don't offer this, but it does encourage us to see this.

Got it, will update the demo site soon to allow admin demo

Serious problem - cant work integrated with SP Pagebuilder

When you have SP Pagebuilder 2.5.1 version and EasyArticle you cant "Edit page" with SP Pagebuilder bcs EasyArticle is loaded instead of SP Pagebuilder.

So what that means is that instead of loading SP Pagebuilder it loads the EasyArticle instead so this is an conflict of these two Joomla extensions. So its seems they can not be used at the same time for Joomla sites.

 
  1. Mark    Stan Chomer

Hey Stan,

I have already replied you on our forums You could easily disable this in the settings.

 
  1. Kevin Morrison

Will there ever be support for JCE or are we stuck with a dumbed down editor?

 
  1. Mark    Kevin Morrison

It supports other 3rd party editors as well, http://take.ms/dphPI

 
  1. Marko

Hi, couldt you explain the differences to EasyBlog please? Is there any use case to use both systems simultanous?
If not, in wich cases do you recommend the subsitiution of EasyBlog?

Summary: I cannot identfy the the different use cases /different target group of EasysBlog and EasyArticles.
Regards, Marko

Hey Marko,

EasyArticles wouldn't be a replacement for EasyBlog to be honest because EasyBlog has it's own views of rendering blog posts. It's primary purpose is to offer ease of use to users who still want to use Joomla articles but wants the entire handling of articles on the front end rather than requiring them to be logged into the back end.

The benefit of EasyArticles, is that because it is stored in Joomla articles, the entire rendering of articles (look and feel would be dependent on...

Hey Marko,

EasyArticles wouldn't be a replacement for EasyBlog to be honest because EasyBlog has it's own views of rendering blog posts.

The benefit of EasyArticles, is that because it is stored in Joomla articles, the entire rendering of articles (look and feel would be dependent on your Joomla template / modules etc)

EasyBlog on the other hand, processes it's own views and renders it's own layouts. EasyBlog has a lot of other benefits likes linking to authors, teams, categories, tags which standard Joomla articles doesn't.

Hope this helps!

Hello,
I's not clear if EA templates are configured by your team or if it is possible to create its own templates from the back-end ...?

 
  1. Mark    Lorenzo

You can create post templates from the front end If you are logged in as one of the moderators, and access the EasyArticles section, you will be able to create new templates

 
  1. Lorenzo    Mark

... by templates I thought of creating elaborate layouts, with columns and subdivisions of blocks (with a framework like Bootstrap, UIkit or other framework), it seems that this is not the case...

 
  1. Boillat

I 'm deceived with easy article because I expected to have the same drag and drop of éléments as in easyblog for templating...

the layout is made out of tables and have not seen the ability to make advanced layout like I want for my customer to use easyly.

Or perhaps I haven't understood how it's working...

 
  1. Mark    Boillat

Hey,

Hm not sure how or why would you use the term "deceived" because we have never included any screenshots that are related to EasyBlog's drag and drop behavior. We even have a demo available for you to try

The concept for EasyArticles is very different than EasyBlog. It's primary purpose is for you to generate Joomla Articles on the front end with ease. We cant structure the content like how we did in EasyBlog because we do not manipulate the output of your articles on the template.

Ho...
