ParaInvite 5

SIMBunch is proud to announce the all new ParaInvite 5.5!

The new ParaInvite introduces Plugin Hooks that allow easy integration with other 3rd party extensions. Now you can create your own plugin to add functionality for a wide variety of ParaInvite triggers.

Version 5.5 also sports a whole new UX/UI overhaul for every page. Modals and pages also load a lot faster.

A large number of bugs have also been fixed. It is highly recommended for all existing users to upgrade.

Many have noticed that as of Joomla 3, your elements with jQuery tooltips will disappear after you mouseover them. This is caused by a conflict with Mootools. If you check the pages where you are seeing this issue, it's when Joomla's Mootools is loaded. The fix is simple:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    $('.hasTooltip').each(function(){ = null; this.hide = null;});

This will disable the hide behavior for Mootools' tooltips, which is declared the same way as jQuery's. You can replace $('.hasTooltip') with whatever class you are using for your tooltips.

Hope this helps!
