What's new @jomsocial

A couple of weeks ago I announced that JomSocial was now a part of iJoomla. The responses have been great! The congratulations from JomSocial’s users have really warmed my heart. I want you to know that I read all the comments and suggestions, and I’m having daily discussions with the team about the different ideas and issues everyone has reported.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your support, and to give you a little update on what we’ve been working on.

New Video Tutorials

JomSocial Video Tutorials

As everyone familiar with iJoomla is aware, I love creating video tutorials. Our YouTube channel now has over 500 videos, including a video tutorial for every feature on each one of our products. Our customers love them because they can easily find a simple explanation for everything they want to do.

So we’re going to do the same for JomSocial.

One of our leading support guys, Eric used to be a teacher and hardly anyone knows JomSocial better, so he’s going to be explaining how to use each of JomSocial features.

So far Eric has produced two excellent videos to guide you through two of the more complicated areas of JomSocial:

You can view those tutorials and new ones, as they come, on our videos page. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel and be notified as new videos become available.

This is just the beginning though. Our plan is to create a complete JomSocial video course powered by Guru (our Joomla LMS). Watch out for it!

New Documentation Wiki

JomSocial Wiki

I’ve also noticed that our documentation page was a bit outdated so Sinisa, another excellent support specialist, has been busy adding around 20 new documentation articles and moving and updating the previous ones to our new wiki. It’s looking great and I’m sure you’re going to love it. You can see the new wiki here.

Our goal is to make the wiki helpful and easy to use. From now on, it will be updated regularly by Sinisa, Hung and Chris.

JomSocial Responsive Design

Our talented designer Harry has also been busy creating a responsive design for JomSocial. You can see the some of the designs on the header of this page. These designs aren’t the final, but they’ll give you an idea of how JomSocial will look on a mobile device.

Road Map + UserVoice

We’re still discussing our road map and what we should put on it. It is a complex task and we’re taking it seriously. It will probably be a few more weeks before we have a real roadmap with a list of features. What I can tell you is that we have been looking closely at your suggestions on jomsocial.uservoice.com so if you haven’t posted a suggestion there yet or haven’t been voting on ideas, now is the perfect time.

New Bug Tracking System

JomSocial Bug Tracking

We are determined to not let any bugs fall into any cracks! So we've started using a very powerful bug tracking system that will allow us to do just that. We've also been moving bugs from our old system to the new one and improved our internal processes for bug tracking.

If you encounter any bugs, please post them on our new "report bugs" forum and, once verified, we will add them to our new bug tracking system to be fixed for the next release.

That’s all the updates so far. I haven’t forgotten about the special iJoomla promotion and the JomSocial promotion. They are both coming soon.
