Greetings from JV-Extensions!
We are glad to announce the release of JV-ShrinkTheWeb 3.0 for Joomla 3.x. JV-ShrinkTheWeb (JV-STW) 3.0 is a major feature release for JV-ShrinkTheWeb and comes with exciting new features like Local thumbnails, 'Simple' method that can use a Free STW account to fetch thumbnails, ability to fetch URL of preview image, enhanced preview manager and more... Read more to know about these features...
Use Free account at ShinkTheWeb !
We have introduced a new option in JV-STW settings in back-end with which you will be able to select between using "Simple" and "Advanced" API methods to fetch thumbnails. Advanced method is the preferred one over Simple method, as you get the advantages of error reporting, avoiding repeated bad requests, obfuscating requests, caching locally, better security, and simpler setup (automatically adding referrers to the "Allowed Referrers" list). This leads to performance boost, redundancy, and lower bandwidth usage/cost. Nevertheless, free account (Simple method) at ShrinkTheWeb has generous limits, good enough for most users, and is recommended if your monthly usage is low, and if you are not keen on caching and reaping its benefits on page loading time.
We are excited to introduce Joomla 3.x native compatibility for JV-ShrinkTheWeb, the free and advanced thumbnail preview extension suite for Joomla!.The 2.0 version released today provides this compatibility and will be developed and supported in parallel to the 1.x versions of JV-ShrinkTheWeb.
The version of JV-ShrinkTheWeb for Joomla 3.x provides an Editor Plugin that inserts a button into the editor (see figure below). The button is called "URL Preview" and clicking on this will open up a pop up window where you can provide the values for parameters for url preview generation. The editor plugin will automatically create the stwpreview tag line and will insert into the content!. So its super easy now to add stwpreview tags into your content!
As you might be aware, JV-ShrinkTheWeb was introduced as a commercial product, given away for free for fixed period time. Owing to the excellent response for the product, and to contribute to the Joomla community, we have decided to keep JV-ShrinkTheWeb completely FREE forever.
Hope you like the latest version of JV-ShrinkTheWeb. If so please do spend a couple of minutes and rate and write a short review about it @ Joomla! Extensions Directory.
Today, we are pleased to launch another Joomla extension - "JV-MailChimp" at JV-Extensions. As the name suggests, this is a Joomla - MailChimp integration extension. With JV-MailChimp you can add a 'Subscribe to Newsletter' option in the Joomla user registration form (create account page). When a user opts to subscribe, JV-MailChimp will work with your account at MailChimp behind the scenes, and add that member to your list.
MailChimp is a simple email marketing software (EMS) which gives you a number of easy options for designing, sending and saving templates of your emails. You can create email lists, add subscribers to the list, send and monitor emails, and track responses. MailChimp offers free and paid account options.

We are starting JV-MailChimp small, but have a roadmap that is expected to add more integration features to the MailChimp - Joomla integration. We aim to make this product the best Joomla MailChimp integration in the future with new features in the coming months.

Very often there are cases when you might want to provide software or user manuals or pdf downloads of your products or services to your customers. It will be very handy if the support system that you use has this ability. In version 2.4 of JV-HelpDesk Pro, we are adding this capability.

We are glad to inform the release of our first windows and web based utility software named "JV-RankUpdater" for JV-LinkDirectory community. This utility is used to update google page ranks in JV-LD tables in your JV-LD tables in your websites.
As everyone is aware, page rank (PR) is a Google proprietary metric that indicates the quality of a website. Though there is wide spread notion that, PR has lots it's importance over a period of time, it still is being used by many websites, advertisers and publishers for various purposes.
JV-LD introduced the capability to fetch and display PR for websites that are listed in its directory from one of its earlier versions. But due to the proprietary nature of this metric and dependency on Google, the feature does not work always for everyone. Possible reasons are blacklisting by Google, forbidden error by Google, IP addresses used by the website etc...
We have made yet another attempt at refining this feature to get it working for everyone. JV-RankUpdater is windows based utility that will run on your desktop, fetch PR for urls listed in a text file (fed as input to it), and will automatically update PR in your JV-LD tables in your website database.
JV-RankUpdater has 2 parts:
Is this software free for everyone?
JV-RankUpdater is NOT free and is commercially licensed
Is this software free for those who use JV-LD or for those who have a valid license of JV-LD or for those who still have access to downloads area at jv-extensions.com?
This software is an add on for all JV-LD customers, and is not free. The software has been written from scratch, as a utility tool to help our JV-LD customers in updating page ranks on their websites. Considerable effort has been spent in creating this software and has been decided to charge a fee to offset the development cost.
How much does this software cost?
JV-RankUpdater costs USD 20 per license
If I purchase JV-RankUpdater, can i use it on all my websites and PCs?
Yes. You can use JV-RankUpdater web server component on all your websites. At any point of time, you can install JV-RankUpdater desktop component, only on one desktop. (It is not really be required to run desktop component on more than 1 desktop :))
What does this software exactly do?
JV-RankUpdater uses its two components - desktop component and web server component to update PR values for list of selected URLs in your JV-LD tables.
Do you offer support for this software?
Certainly yes. We will certainly investigate problems that are reported, but we cannot guarantee that, all issues can be solved, due to dependencies on other components, which are not in our control.
Is there a refund policy for this software?
Yes. We do provide a 3 day refund policy, in the following cases:
