CMExtension is happy to announce the release of CM Live Deal 1.2.0.

In this release, we fixed some bugs and issues from the previous release:

  • Untranslated "JFIELD_PLG_SEARCH_SEARCHLIMIT_DESC" text is now removed in front-end.
  • Category filter in search form displayed all categories no matter what status they were. Now the filter only display published categories.
  • Fixed bug in merchant profile, sometimes the profile was not saved.

Together with bug fixes, we have new features too:

  • Membership integration: integrate with membership components. At the present time we only support Membership Pro component, more other components will be integrated in future. With this integration
    • We can limit how many deals merchant can create.
    • We can limit how many days merchant's deals are displayed on the site.
    • When the limitations are reached, if merchant wants to create more deals or extend the expiration dates of merchant's deals, merchant needs to upgrade to a higher membership plan.
  • Share deal to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.
  • A new option in deal list for sorting deals. Ability to show/hide this option in configuration.
  • Tools: Tools are used help you do some technical tasks easily without touching the source code or the database. At the present time there is only 1 tool "Deal alias generator", more tools will be added in future. 
  • Published option is added into front-end deal submission form. Merchant can publish/unpublish his deal easily, no need to adjust starting/ending date any more.
  • Integration with Falang for multilingual.

If you upgrade your CM Live Deal to 1.2.0, you need to run "Deal alias generator" to create aliases for your deals after you upgrade. Please always backup before upgrade!
