In order for the component to function properly, webmasters must enable the System SEO Keyword Factory plugin, which detects the referral from the search engine and will allow to create and maintain a search engine relevant website.

The component comes with a link manager, where all created links are displayed, given the webmaster the possibility to add new links or edit existing ones. When editing, the landing page can be changed, the keywords, number of hits and the publishing state of that certain item. The filter function allows a search after relevant words.

At the component settings, global configuration, the webmaster can set the plugin status and the following parameters:

  • keywords transformation (upper, lower, capital, unchanged),
  • keywords separator,
  • link terminator,
  • number of columns and rows visible per page in the frontend,
  • banned words (if any of this words is found in the search engine keywords, the link will not be generated).

eBook Factory 3.2.2

  Does your website contain valuable content? Would you like to sell this content as an eBook? Or perhaps, just send out newsletters with a PDF attachment of your content? Have you ever considered that your website may have articles that could be gathered in an eBook format? Ever wanted to publish your own eBooks? Now as a Joomla site administrator, the job is way more easier!

eBook Factory is the only component who can build full eBooks out of the content of your site!

eBook Factory renders a PDF out of the content items of your site in matter of minutes and stores it on your server in order to have it ready for download or newsletter mailings!

Since Joomla’s own PDF engine is merely a basic text to PDF convertor, we put our best work into developing a component. This component not only respects the standard layout of an eBook, but also includes Graphics, Fonts, and External Links that you used in your content.

All of your work is done in the administration panel of Joomla. There, you can create a set of eBooks containing Chapters and sub-chapters from your content items. You can use the Sections and/or Categories: as Chapter titles, as well as Sub-chapters.

All of the Page numbering, and Table of Contents numbering is done automatically. You will be able to choose between Roman, Arabic numbering, and even have the option to use letters for sub-chapters.

Fonts and styles can be set for each eBook individually, and you can use a cover image to brand your eBook.

Any eBook can have unlimited numbers of columns, which will aid in making your eBook look professional, and easy to read. In order to obtain a clear visualization of the generated eBooks some of the initial browser page formatting like table tags where intentionally omitted and will not be parsed by the component.

Briefcase Factory 3.2.1

  Briefcase Factory is the only Joomla equivalent for Yahoo's Briefcase - A new approach to document and file sharing.

The user interface is intuitive and uses AJAX for several operations, therefore no page reloads to slow down your work. You can ADD more than one file at a time; number can be set in admin backend. The uploaded Files can be SHARED with one user, more than one user, all users, or with the public (registered and unregistered users).

If you uploaded some files in the wrong folder you can always MOVE them as you please. Files can be assigned to several Categories (configurable in the admin backend) and the category can also be changed after the upload. Create Folders where you like, even folder in folder.

Files Shared for Me by other users are accessible under a separate area and there is also a separate area for Public Shared Files, where any visitor can view or download files.
 
Logged on as administrator you can access ALL the Files uploaded by all users on your system. You can search after certain terms or filter one particular user. Any file can be deleted, renamed or you can change it's Category. Briefcase Factory has NEW features like:
  • JACL Support (Group Sharing & Group exclusions)
  • File Description, Share Time limit, File Time limit (file auto-deletes after a certain date)
  • For Admin a multitude of features like set allowed file types, max. size, FTP upload, etc.
  • Joomfish Multilanguage Support

Following Modules & Plugins are included in the Briefcase Factory kit:

  • Community Builder Plugin Pack (located under [archive]/packages/cb_plugins folder) - These are two powerful Community Builder Plugins that work hand in hand with Briefcase Factory. My Files - Shows the list of the user's own files, or if you look at another persons profile you will see his (or hers) public shared files. This makes managing of Briefcase Files in community builder much easier. You can also upload files or download your files from this plugin. Private Files - Shows the list of private shared files (that users share for your eyes only), or if you look at other profiles you see the files you shared to them. Of course you can un-share the files or download them as needed.
  • Top Module - You can choose in Admin Backend between the two display options: Top Downloaded Files and Latest Added Public Files. All the settings are in Administration (under Module property) configurable. To have both type of modules on your site, just copy the module once (option in Administration) and you have both Top Downloads and Latest Files.
  • Statistics Module - displays various Statistical Information: Downloads, Shared Files and many more...
