jGive 1.6.7 is here!!

Hi Everyone,

We have released jGive 1.6.7 . We have added one major feature in this release - The Country and Regions manager with multi-lingual support.

The Country Manager and region manager now allows you to restrict which countries and regions you want to allow donations from. This way if you service lets say only the UK, then your users dont have to browse through a huge list of countries and regions and donating is that much simpler for them ! 

Secondly with the multilingual feature you can translate names of countries and regions into your local language. So if you are a German website, you can translate India to Indien.

Here is the change log for this release.

+ Features added

#31909 Add Country, Region & City manager  in jGive

Shipping, Taxation, multivendor CCK, native EasySocial App and more with Quick2cart 2.2

When we started planning Quick2Cart 2.2, we admittedly bit of more than what we could chew so to say from a timeline perspective. This release has lots and lots of features and not many of them small. This led to lot of delays on our end. We are extremely sorry about this but we cannot release something we believe is not complete and hence the delay. However, I hope you will all agree that it was all worth the wait !

Quick2cart v2.2 takes Joomla Ecommerce to new highs with major improvements in User experience and some really awesome features. Multi Vendor Shipping and taxation, CCK Multivendor support, tight EasySocial Integration are just the tip of the feature iceberg we have in this release ! Read on for the full Scoop !!

Shipping and Taxation Reloaded

Shipping and taxation was a major point of this release. It was important that it be done in a way that can be flexible and scalable to a variety of situations. The basis of shipping and taxation is based on Geographical Zones.


Zones are used to club together regions and/or countries that have something in common from a shipping or taxation perspective. For instance you could make a zone called the ‘Indian Subcontinent’ with all the countries included since your shipping provider charges you the same fees for all those countries. Further Zones are used extensively when you define Shipping and Tax rates. Each store needs to have its own zones for full flexibility.

Tax Rates and Profiles

By setting up zones you can set tax rates and in some cases multiple taxes are applied to a single product for eg: VAT (Value added tax), LBT (Local Body Tax), Service Tax etc. In Tax Profiles, you are able to relate the tax rate to the billing or shipping address. For instance to send products to Pune, you will attract both LBT and VAT. LBT being a function of the shipping address and VAT of the billing address.

EasyBlog now at your fingertips with “The Blog App”!

As promised, we’re extremely happy to announce the release of “The Blog App”. This app is set to work with Easyblog to give your readers a way to easily read the blogs on a smartphone. Now even more ways you can get your content to your readers!

The app is currently available on Android’s Play Store and will soon be available on iTunes as well. A lot more features are planned, but since we wanted to make a release very soon, this version is a preview to what is soon to come. The app right now allows your visitors to read blogs from your site. However I promise the next version will be feature packed and will definitely have the ability to write blogs. Social sharing is another feature we are planning for the next release.

Here’s how the app looks like with some of its cool features

1. Start up

You just have to enter your site url and all the blogs on your site will be shown. Username and password are optional. These will be used when blog posting is made available.

2. Latest Blogs

Once you put your website url all blogs on your website will appear. Starting from the latest ones from where you can scroll down.
