  • More about Joomla Privacy Suite and Community Builder

     

    With the release of Joomla 3.9 millions of Joomla powered websites finally had a solution to cope with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    The major feature of this Joomla release is the Privacy suite. In simple terms, the privacy suite features provide the following functionality:

    1. Getting user consent when your recording their data (new registrations, existing registartions and periodic consent renewal)
    2. Managing user requests to provide users with their data and/or remove their data from your website
    3. Logging user activities that result in more user data gathering on your website (with API for other Joomla extensions to push their related activities to the log)

    With the release of Community Builder 2.4, the CB registration process integrates with the Joomla user consent capturing process.

    The integration process is managed by publishing the params field (User Parameters) field to appear on the CB Registartion form (from the CB Field Manager). This simple move will reveal the Joomla privacy policy consent question on the CB Registration form.

    Managing user requests and viewing user activity logs are reached from Joomla privacy dashboard and CB website can use this functionality just fine - remember CB users are also Joomla users.

    Exporting CB related user data can be performed from the CB User Management administrative page utilizing the new CB 2.4 user import/export feature.

    Finally, the CB 2.4 terms and conditions fieldtype improvements now track user consent (the date user accepted) and you can also force users to accept terms and condition field before they can complete there login session to fully browse your site. In other words, you don't really need to use the Joomla privacy policy / concent process at all. It's your choice ;-) ! And there is an extra bonus if you use CB terms and conditions -- you can have more than one (actually unlimited) terms and conditions fields active at the same time -- all requiring acceptance before letting users continue.

    All of these features are built-in to our free Community Builder, but there are also several paid Add-ons that can help website administrators put in place even better GDPR processes and automations.

    We will be following up on this in a new article next week ... so stay tuned ;-)

    The Joomla 3.9.2 is a highly recommended upgrade for all Joomla 3.x series sites. As always, before any Joomla upgrade on your live website, take a backup just in case anything goes wrong.

  • Community Builder 2.4 Released!

    Community Builder can be freely downloaded by all registered members

     

    We just released Community Builder 2.4 with 9 new features and 6 bug fixes.

    Community Builder 2.4 is a features release that is a recommended upgrade for all CB sites.

    Our demo website has already been updated to Community Builder 2.4, so you can see it in action along will all our Joomlapolis add-ons.

    Of the new features we would like to highlight the following:

    • Integration with Joomla 3.9 privacy suite including privacy policy, terms and conditions, user delete request and user export request.
    • Export feature has been added to CB User Manager supporting CSV, XML and JSON formats.
      Just checkbox the users you would like to export and click on the new export button to select export format and download file.
    • Import feature lets you create new users or edit existing users.
      Specifying an ID column lets you update user data. Files without ID column will create new users.
    • Completely improved CB terms and conditions fields: CB terms and condition fields now track user consent (the date conditions got accepted). Consent to continue browsing the site can be required (if enabled in CB system plugin). This allows to force users to accept terms (or leave the site, same as Joomla privacy policy has implemented) except it works with as many terms and conditions fields as required by the website.

    As always, you should first test on a cloned environment before upgrading your production site.

    A detailed changelog is available in the discussion thread.
