easy social integration

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to install both Joomla plugin and EasySocial application. I will also show a basic configuration which can help you to show ads on your community stream and social profile.

 

This plugin comes free with the subscription of the extension.
You'll find it installed (you may need to enable it manually) after extension's installation, alternatively it's available in downloads section (available for active subscribers).

Installation

I mentioned already that EasySocial integration consists of two elements. One is Joomla plugin and another one is EasySocial application.

 

Install Joomla plugin using Extension manager

In the Joomla backend, click on the Extensions ->Extension manager.

Start Extension manager

On the Extension manager interface, follow the procedure

  1. Click on the “Choose File” button.
  2. Select Joomla plugin package
  3. Click on the Upload & Install button
  4. If everything is alright, you should see the following screen

 

Install EasySocial application using EasySocial application installation feature

Another part of DJ-Classifieds integration with EasySocial is installation of the EasySocial application, which needs to be done using EasySocial application installation feature.


1. Start EasySocial application manager and click on the Install link

2. Select EasySocial DJ-Classifieds application installation package and click on the Upload & Install button


3. If everything goes well, you should see the Installation Successful message

4.When you return to the application list, you should see newly installed application in the list. All you need to do now is to enable it and configure it so it can be used by your social members on the website

5. Configuration of the application is really a simple one. You can enable or disable the following configuration options (Basic options)

  • State - The state determines if the application should be published or unpublished. When unpublished, user's would not be able to access the app.
  • Default application - If this option is enabled, the application will automatically be installed for the user. When the application is set as default application, user will not be able to configure the application in the application area.

Additionally you can configure Widget behavior and Adverts view of the application as it will be seen on the frontend of the website, in the EasySocial user stream

Configure the widget of user's DJ-Classifieds adverts in profile.

  • Enable widget - Decide if you want to display widget with adverts in userprofile
  • Widget position - Decide on what position this widget should be displayed
  • Total Recent Adverts - Specify the numbers of recently created new adverts of the user to display

Configure the application view of user's DJ-Classifieds adverts in profile.

Total Recent Adverts - Specify the numbers of recently created new adverts of the user to display

  • Number of columns - Decide in how many columns do you want to display adverts

EasySocial Profile

In case you didn’t enable Default application parameter in the application configuration, each member needs to manually enable the application on his profile if he wants to show the DJ-Classifieds stream and his own Ads on his profile pages


1. Browse for the application installed on the system from the profile pages

2. Find Adverts application and click on the Install button


3. Accept default terms and conditions and click on the Install App button

4. You should see the Adverts application in your application list and also a notification of the successful installation in your social stream

5. When you click on the Adverts application, you should see your Ads (in case you already created some in the DJ-Classifieds)

6. In case someone else creates a new Ad in the DJ-Classifieds, other members should see a notification about that in their profile stream

7. In case you visit other member profile, you should see the list of his own Ads on his profile pages, like this
