Users and administrators alike will welcome the breadth of features in 2.0 and interested individuals can avail themselves of JomSocial coupon code offered by Joomla community members.

Online PR News – 03-December-2010 – – The release of the latest version of JomSocial, version 2.0, adds a wealth of functionality that addresses user and administrator wish lists compiled since the previous version, 1.8, was released earlier this year. The added features make 2.0 a must have for all but the most stubborn of JomSocial administrators, as they provide ease of use improvements and added functionality on the client side, and ease of administration and added control on the administrator side of the house. Interested parties can acquire the JomSocial 2.0 at a discount by employing a JomSocial coupon code made available by some Joomla community members.

Much has been speculated regarding the new features packed into this release. For the users, the added features are must-have, and they have been trumpeting this tune ever since 1.8 back in June of 2010. Here's a quick rundown of what is now available with 2.0: First, profile types. Users may now select their profile type as provided by the administrator. For the administrator, this means group creation ability may now be allocated to specific profile types. Second, member search and list functionality has been vastly improved, and may now be provided as a menu link by the administrators, allowing users to access the listings. Third, users are now able to rate various parts of the social network. Users can opt to like or dislike profiles, photos, groups, videos and more.

Fourth, what's a social network without pictures? For 2.0, JomSocial provides the ability to read photo metadata to automatically auto-rotate photos according to its original orientation. Along the same theme, users may now crop their profile pictures so that they can fully feature a section on the picture rather than settle for the entire snapshot. Fifth, events have been given a much needed redesign, so the invitation system received UI and API improvements, group events may now be created by users for their groups, and to placate the organizer in all of us, events may now be categorized as well. Sixth, activity streams may now be filled with a wealth of cool messages which may include one or more of the following: most viewed photos, popular users and so forth. Custom messages may be crafted for all to see.

Finally, much to the relief of administrators, JomSocial 2.0 provides more controls over the members. For the first time, administrators may modify user vanity URLs, configure redirection pages upon login, disable profile video features, and employ additional template parameters. All in all, the combination of user and administrator feature makes this version a worthwhile update for JomSocial based network sites.

"Ever since 1.8, JomSocial users and administrators have been discussing and debating various additional functionalities, and the release of JomSocial 2.0 demonstrates that the community's concerns have been heard. JomSocial 2.0 presents a new landscape for JomSocial based network sites, one in which both users and administrators benefit greatly," notes Paul Johnson of JomSocial Coupon.
