The wait is over.. Invitex v2.8 is ready and released with interesting lot of new features you have been waiting for!

Quick glimpse of Features:

3Better Bootstrap utilization and AWESOME NEW UI 

This version brings an awesome bootstrap styling & a new layout to give your site viral invitation tool an irresistible new look ! The old layout is revamped plus we have added a nice new one as well !

Let your Guests send Invitations with Captcha protection

Any visitor/guest user on the site can now invite their friends on the site. All they have to do is enter their name and email and use Invitex.

 

Social Network Batching

Making requests to different Social Networks in batches so that the users have a seamless experience while inviting their friends.
The limitations that many Social Networks on the number of Messages or notifications we can send using their OAuth APIs. is handled in this batching process.  Which means that a user can invite all the LinkedIn and Twitter friends in one go. However, the application will send these messges to respective network in batches so that your app does'nt hit its limits !

7Display Selected contacts in a separate tab, in the Invitation Flow

If you are popular, you will probably have thousands of contacts in your gmail or facebook. With so many contacts, it becomes hard to remember which ones you selected to Invite to the site. This feature will show the selected contacts in a separate tab making it much better from a usability perspective.

Ability to redirect to Invitation on Login with the ability to Skip

Remind your users to send out a few invitations after each login. This feature will allow you to redirect users to the Invitations page immediately after login & ask them to send Invitations. They can skip this ofcourse. Settings will also allow you to let this happen every time or Randomly.

altUser Information Plugin for Rich Personalised Landing pages

Introducing a new content plugin to make the custom landing pages for Invitex using a Joomla Article & any custom content much more rich and awesome.
