More Users, More Better!

It can be really hard to get people with no knowledge of your products or services to visit your website. Really hard.

Whether you are building something new or promoting existing content, you need to get it out and gain traction in the market fast. Sure, you can rely on standard content marketing campaigns (like this one!), but they can be expensive, their effects are uncertain and can take weeks or even months before delivering returns.

That's why nothing beats consistent and direct peer-to-peer marketing. There is nobody people trust more than recommendations from their own friends - and that's where ParaInvite comes in:

Send Direct Invites
Direct invitations to your users' friends and contacts on multiple networks with highly customiziable messages.
Share Content
Share any content on any page of your website directly to your users' networks and contacts
Personal Namecards
Personalized individual name cards on your site act like mini-profiles that users share with friends.
Remote Buttons
Buttons on your users' blogs, forum posts, and personal sites to convert their members to yours.
Reward Points
Encourage invites sending, content sharing, etc by rewarding users with points, gifts, and more.
Meaningful Statistics
Meaningful statistics and charts help you manage your viral marketing and plan ahead.

Quick Login

A long registration process is proven to deter user sign-ups. ParaInvite's Quick Login feature lets users register and login using their Facebook, LinkedIn, and other commonly used profiles with just one click - so you can lock them in and have them interact with your site quickly.

The new ParaInvite 5.3 introduces a wide variety of exciting new features, including a revolutionary email templating system. See what it can do for your site's membership today!

ParaInvite 5

SIMBunch is proud to announce the all new ParaInvite 5.3!

The latest version comes with several significant additions and changes. The easiest to notice will be the change in the display of the main invite, the quick login feature, the content plugin (which you can see right below this article), and the share module links (on the right side of this article!). The new display is a lot cleaner, loads faster, and does not require additional images.

Another significant change is our all new email template system. ParaInvite now saves each individual template in a physical file, which you can choose to edit either with your Joomla editor, or your favorite code editor for full control. This unique system also makes maintaining multiple language emails MUCH SIMPLER!

We have also added an all new email tag {PMUK}, which affectionately stands for "People You May Know". When you add this tag to your email template, ParaInvite will intelligently go through previous invites and imported contacted from other users and search for potential members who may be friends with the invited user. This will greatly encourage new users to register on your site.

Lastly, ParaInvite Share Anywhere. We have streamlined and opened up the very same code we use for the Sharing Module, and made it available as an API. Developers can now display the share button or list anywhere on your site without depending on the Share Module.

Feel free to take a quick tour, or check out the full description!

I'm about to release a new product - SIMGenealogy. It's an extension that allows you (and your users, if you allow them to) to create and manage family trees and start genealogy projects. It's pretty nifty!

For now, you can give it a go by to going your SIMGenealogy dashboard (requires login). I have created a sample family tree modelled after the popular TV show "Modern Family" here.

The features are pretty self-explanatory, so have fun with it. Stay tuned for the official release!

SIMGallery 5.0

The next major release of SIMGallery is finally here! Version 5.0 has gone through a major revamp, both in its engine and the interface. Here are some of the major update:

Fully Responsive Design
Every single part and every single feature of SIMGallery 5.0 will display, beautifully, on every device type: smartphones, tablets, and desktops.
Theater Mode
Just like on Facebook, clicking on links to Photos and Videos will display on a popup. As you browse (without the need to load a new page), the URL on the browser will change accordingly, so your users can share links easily by simple copy and paste.
Completely Revamped Profile Picture Update

Another huge addition. Clicking on the Update Profile Picture button will display a modal that allows you to:

  • Upload new photo
  • Take photo via webcam
  • Select existing photo
  • Edit thumbnail for current profile picture

Once a new photo has been added/selected, a cropping modal will appear where you can choose to crop out a part of the photo and set as your profile picture.

Multi-Level Categories
Previously, SIMGallery only supports single-level categories. Now you can have up to 3 levels of categories/sub-categories.
User Names Tooltip Information
Mouseover any user's names to see how it works.
Improved Integration with JomSocial and EasySocial
Integrations with 3rd party extensions are tighter now
Improved Page Loading
Delays and slow page loading due to lengthy multiple database queries have been completely removed. Pages load much faster now.
Revamped Modules and Plugins
Modules and plugins display images beautifully now, with theater mode working with all of them.

It is really difficult to appreciate these improvements by reading about them. I strongly recommend testing out the full demo to see how everything comes together. You need to login to create your own albums and upload photos.

We have just released the all new ProfileURL 3.5.0. There are some important changes and major updates:

Joomla 3+ only

As Joomla 2.5 is nearing the end of its support life cycle, we have decided to drop support for it. In the months to come, we will begin to release updates for our other products without support for Joomla 2.5.

If you need assistance upgrading your website from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3+, feel free to send us an email. After all, we just upgraded our own, and it was quite an undertaking.

Responsive Design + Bootstrapped enabled
ProfileURL now works perfectly on mobile devices.
All New Integrations
We have added support for EasySocial groups, SIMAnswers dashboards, and Kunena user profiles.
Switched from Mootools to jQuery
Keeping in line with Joomla's roadmap, we have switched to jQuery. We actually started the change with SIMAnswers (most people didn't even notice this), and will be proceeding with our other extensions in time.

For a full list of extensions supported by ProfileURL, please check out the documentation page, or go straight to the live demo (requires login)!
