EasyDiscuss 4.0.19 Updates

EasyDiscuss 4.0.19 Updates

About a week ago, we released a maintenance update for EasyBlog. To keep the momentum going, we would like to present you with EasyDiscuss 4.0.19 update today!

All New Back-end UI and Dialogs

EasyDiscuss backend
EasyDiscuss dialog

Apart from the usual bug fixes, we also added optimization and performed overall enhancements for EasyDiscuss.

For the longest time, the team has been wanting to unify the design and UI to be as identical as possible across all products, however it would be taxing and time consuming. 

We kicked start by porting over the styling of EasySocial 2.1 into the back-end and dialogs of EasyDiscuss first, and then work progressively from there. Doesn't it look more standardized and uniform now with the rest of our Joomla extensions? :)

Vanilla Template

​We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who submitted their bug reports for Vanilla template. 

Works are still in progress especially for EasyDiscuss and EasyBlog, and Vanilla beta will be made available as soon as we get those issues sorted out. Should you find any styling issue or bug, you can always drop a ticket at our forums.

Quick Posting App for EasySocial 2.1 

Quick posting plugin

While the team is still in the midst of finalizing EasySocial 2.1, we have also added the Quick Posting app onto our demo site. Be sure to check it out and give this nifty plugin a spin! 

Tons of cool stuff are coming your way, stay tuned to our blog and have a great weekend folks! :)

first!

Quick Posting. Tried it. Loved it. Wonderful. Another StackIdeas Miracle.

Have you considered it showing an 'Edit' icon by default next to the Main + icon when the user is on editable 'pages' that they own (for example their events, groups, pages, videos)

That's a good idea :)

Cool :)
Does the Quick Posting App also include EasyBlog and EasyDiscuss ?
Thank you

Yep, as long as apps are hooked onto the story form, they would be able to see them.

Nice :)

Does this mean there will be an icon for EasyDiscuss to do a quick post to ED?

Yes, it will have the same number of icons just like the number of items on the story form :)

And will this app work with the Mobile Web Template ?

We are still considering this as the mobile web template has a different view altogether and the last thing we want to do is to contaminate the mobile web template with too many actions :|

You are right.

Is Quick posting plugin for sell or it is free come with EasySocial? because I can't find it.
Thank

It will be available for sale in the app store when EasySocial goes stable :)

Hi Mark, interested to the plugin if we can customize actions, remove, edit and add our own buttons (label + url + icon).

Most of these buttons and text are re-used from EasySocial's story update form. It doesn't have any URL since they are all done with javascript.

Just a quick question here, how does the conversekit plugin work alongside the quick posting plugin? From a visual perspective I just want to see how they integrate as 2 buttons side by side might seem odd and also if its rolled into one then the conversations of conversekit get hidden dont they - so I am curious about how you guys did this?

We have some huge changes for ConverseKit 2.0 but as of now, when the plugin is activated, ConverseKit will arrange it's button accordingly.

The quick post is nice, but without a connection to the stream anywhere module I do not understand what it is there for. :/ If I write a status on a URL, no one will see to which page the status is related to. Maybe I did not recognize that it is combinable with the stream anywhere module?

The concept and idea of the quick post is to allow people to post status updates or anything they want, quickly without needing to go to a specific page.

It could be on the contact us page, where stream anywhere module isn't activated or any other extensions view.

hi mark,
some bugs reports posted in the forum...

One question :
is the Quick Posting will allow us to post on kunena forum ?
We know that stack ideas team as developed the app not kunena team... that is really great because many joomla users used kunena... - and i can't not migrate to ED -

will you please make it possible to post from quick posting ???

Posting to kunena forum isn't possible currently and we might enhance the Kunena app in the future.

Having said that, we do see many users complaining and moving away from Kunena so I am not sure if it makes sense for us to enhance that app.

i will also move to EasyDiscuss as soon as the migration can keep SEO...
for the moment migration do not keep cat ID and topics ID so it's impossible to redirect old url to new one... that's mean loosing all SEO... :(
hope this can be a priority to solve for the dev

We will see what we can do here loic, but right now I cant promise anything though. We need to keep moving forward and we cannot make the urls look even uglier than what we have currently :( Moving forward, our goal is to simplify and beautify urls instead of making them ugly :|

I guess one alternative is to create a specific table to stores migrated urls from Kunena over to a new URL. Until a point of time where you are comfortable with the SEO, these data could then be deleted since...

hi mark, thanks for taking time to answer.
100% agree with you regarding to complex url. I don't ask for any modification of ED for sure.
Hope your idea with urls table could be done with your help.
Or maybe better to wait for next future with url without ID for joomla components that can probably help building something only with .htaccesss redirections.

Nicely done with the plugin Mark. Will this plugin be available for the mobile template as well?

We are still considering the options on rendering this on the mobile web template because it has a different view altogether.

Hi Mark,

Did your team thought about Quick Post application and ConverseKit, seems to be that both will have the icon on the same place.

Yes, we did :)
