Roadmap for the Mobile App v2.0

Hiya Everyone!

First, thank you very much for all the suggestions and improvements you suggested to all of the apps. As promised, putting down here the features and plan for the v2.0 of the combined app (P.S. It's v2.0 directly to avoid any version naming confusion). The combined app will sport Easysocial, Easyblog & JGive to start with. Here's a list of features for each section that will be available in v2.0. Most of these features were already available in the respective singular apps, but since the combined app is a significant rewrite, listing down all the features.

We're still working out a date for this release, and late October / early November seems to be working out. I'm still discussing with the Stackideas team in regards to the Easysocial APIs, will update with a date soon!

EasySocial

  1. List of my friends
  2. Add as a friend
  3. User search
  4. Newsfeed, with all filters working
  5. Comments + Likes
  6. Status update with photo support
  7. The login bug where the app forced you to quit in case of an incorrect login

Easyblog

Adding validation in Joomla for post_max_size and memory_limit

Hey Guys,

In this blog we will see how to handle validation for ‘post_max_size’ and 'memory_limit' in Joomla for file uploads. Sometimes when dealing with file uploads in Joomla or in any PHP frameworks, form post size can exceed the max allowed ‘post_max_size’ (set in php.ini in your server configuration). If the size of post data exceeds post_max_size, the $_POST and $_FILES superglobals are emptied. Now, if post size validation is not added, it becomes very difficult for the end user as well as developer to track what exactly the issue is.

Using the code given below for 'post_max_size' and 'memory_limit' validation we can display the warning if post data is greater than ‘post_max_size’ or if the 'memory_limit' is exceeded in the same way as ‘com_media’ in Joomla does.

Let's Code:

// Total length of post back data in bytes.
$contentLength = (int) $_SERVER['CONTENT_LENGTH'];

// Maximum allowed size of post back data in MB.
$postMaxSize = (int) ini_get('post_max_size');

// Maximum allowed size of script execution in MB.
$memoryLimit = (int) ini_get('memory_limit');

// Check for the total size of post back data.
if (($postMaxSize > 0 && $contentLength > $postMaxSize * 1024 * 1024) || ($memoryLimit != -1 && $contentLength > $memoryLimit * 1024 * 1024))
{
	// Show warning and return
	JError::raiseWarning(100, “Total size of upload exceeds the limit.”);
	return false;
}

Appify your EasySocial website with our smartphone EasySocial App

Easysocial by Stackideas is one of the top social networking extensions for Joomla. If you are new to EasySocial, you can find out more about it here. With the app for iOS and android we bring you an awesome slice of EasySocial's capabilities to your smartphone.

The free branded version of the app is available via the Google Play Store and in the queue for approval on the IOS App Store. You can buy a custom branding service on our site.

We believe in creating apps that work and are effective and one of the important factors in achieving that is deciding which is deciding which features to offer on mobile and which to restrict to the web.

Adding too many functionalities to mobile apps makes them complex and hard to use. We have followed the same policy with the EasySocial app. The features you are more likely to use on mobile have been prioritized in this development to give you a clean and useful experience. Read on for the full details.
