CMLiveDeal 1.9.0 is released to fix a critical bug and introduces a new feature.

In CMLiveDeal 1.8.2, we fixed some issues to make CMLiveDeal work with Falang, however it created unexpected bug in category module and city module. If we clicked on the item in the modules, we got SQL error "Table 'falang_content' doesn't exist" if Falang was not installed. This bug is fixed in 1.9.0, if you use Falang you will need to set "Falang integration" to "Enabled" in the component's configuration.

The new feature in CMLiveDeal is featured deal, you can set deals as "featured", display them on the top of deal list or add "featured" ribbon to its top right corner in deal list. You can find these options in under "Deal list" tab in configuration. You can set deals as featured in back-end's deal list and deal form.

Thank you for reporting the bug of Falang integration! Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or find out any problems in CMLiveDeal 1.9.0.

CMExtension is pleased to announce the release of CMLiveDeal 1.8.2 Stable.

  • Fixed bug in search module.
  • Fixed wrong redeemed date bug in customer form in front-end.
  • Deal detail URL in merchant's deal list now uses deal detail menu item instead of using deal list menu item.
  • Fixed Javascript error when deal title had double quotes.
  • Fixed Falang incompatibility in category module and search module.
  • Fixed broken HTML layout in deal list.

New payment system

We received many questions and feature requests for a way to require customer to pay in order to receive coupon in CMLiveDeal. This feature is currently not availabe in CMLiveDeal because CMLiveDeal is used to provide free coupons, but we will change that. We will add a payment system to CMLiveDeal to allow site owner earns money from customers and merchants and also allow merchants to receive payments from customers.

Below is our plans to build this new payment system.

CMExtension is pleased to announce the release of CMLiveDeal 1.8.1 Stable.

CMExtension would like to announce the release of CMLiveDeal 1.8.0 Beta, this beta includes 2 new features:

  • New configuration option to limit 1 coupon for registered user per deal: before 1.8.0 version, every registered user only can get 1 coupon for a deal, now you can disable this and let user gets unlimited coupon quantity for every deal.
  • Akeeba Subscription integration: similar to the integration with Membership Pro component, now CMLiveDeal has integration with Akeeba Subscription for charging merchant.

Important note: Akeeba Subscription is a free membership component from Akeeba Backup, however there is no support provided from Akeeba Backup, even paid support. So if you decide to use Akeeba Subscription, you should ensure that you can solve your problems with Akeeba Subscription by yourself.

CMExtension is pleased to announce the first beta release of CMLiveDeal 1.7. This beta includes some bug fixes and new features.

Bug fixes:

  • Failed to change deal's dates in back-end when Membership Pro integration was enabled.
  • New submitted deal was not approved automatically when Membership Pro integration was disabled and auto-approve was enabled.
  • Not all cities displayed in merchant map in back-end.

New features and improvements:

  • Bootstrap front-end framework version 3 is now supported. Now you can use CMLiveDeal wth Bootstrap 3 template.
  • Gird column in deal list is supported. Instead of having only 1 column in deal list, now you can configure to have 2, 3 or 4 columns.
  • Option to disable FontAwesome is added. You can disable FontAwesome loading in CMLiveDeal if another extension (template, plugin) already loads FontAwesome.
  • Expired coupons are not clickable in user's coupon list. Because expired coupons can't be printed any more, it confuses users when showing the links to printing page but that page shows 404 error.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any problem in this beta release or if you have any question!
