This blog post is intended to announce the next version of JV-PostMaster, and also remind you of the ongoing 50% discount sale at JV-Extensions. But first of all, we at JV-Extensions wish you a very Happy New Year. In 2015, we sincerely hope to improve our products, release new products and provide better services to you.
We are delighted to announce the release of JV-PostMaster 3.2 today, the first of January 2015. In addition to many bug fixes, it also has a few enhancements to the core features as follows:
Auto Posting Rules
This is a complete re-design of Auto Post Configuration that we had in JV-PostMaster. Auto posting refers to the concept of posting article info to one or more channels/providers when the article is saved in Joomla frontend or/and backend. With the new design you can easily create and edit auto posting rules that define, what to post (source) and where to post to (channel/provider).
When you create a rule, you are instructing JV-PostMaster to post the configured message to the selected channel/provider account whenever any of the articles in the selected categories are saved. Auto posting rules provide you with enhanced capabiility and control over what is posted and where it is posted to.
Scheduled Manual Posting:
Scheduled manual posting is a new feature by which you can decide the date and time of a post that wish to do manually via JV-PostMaster backend using the Manual Posting menu. This feature will help you announce important events and news to your customers via social media at specific date and time.
Hash Tags in Tumblr
This feature enables you to include hash tags in messages that you post to Tumblr. Tags make it easier for readers to find posts about a specific topic on your blog. e.g. Tag your photographs with photography or your trip posts with travel.
We have made some major changes to cron usage and commands to ingest and publish for automatic article generators in this version. With the new version, there is no need to edit any file like ingest.php or publish.php. We have included clear instructions and commands for each type of resource in "Cron Configuration" in JV-PostMaster configuration screen in backend. If you are using cron for JV-PostMaster posting, please refer to the updated documentation for revised instructions.
Help feature for Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Ping Services in Auto Posting configuration screen.
To make it easy for customers, we have included help sections in the JV-PM auto posting rules section, where you can understand what tags to include, for the type of message that you will need in your social media accounts.
We hope you will enjoy using this version of JV-PostMaster.
