Attempt to install a plugin:
The CB plugin JoomGalleryTab displays images of JoomGallery in a user's profile in Community Builder (1.7.1 or newer).
in current versions of Community Builder (installation of course as a CB plugin, not a Joomla plugin) fails with a message:
Plugin version (3.0.1) different from Community Builder version (2.4.2)
Failed to save Install CB Plugin because: Installation error
It turns out that Community Builder compares the value of the record in the
tags in the .xml plugin with the installed Community Builder version (current on 2019.07.31 is 2.4.2) treating this as a minimum requirement, and if it is higher then it rejects the plugin at the installation stage.
In the file cb.joomgallerytab.xml
And add the
tag as the version of JoomCommunityBuilderTab, Community Builder will display this version number in the list of plugins.
However, setting the
value too low (eg to 1.7.1) results in the CB of a message about possible incompatibility.
Ps.1. I thought that this "old man plugin" does not work simply with the new CB, I'm not a programmer, but by trial and error finally after two weeks I came up with what is wrong.
Ps.2. In plugin .xml you have:
. Should be 2019/04/05?
Ps.3. I am very happy that JoomGallery (thanks to JoomGalleryFriends) is again on the turn. After almost 10 years of a break from www, I thought that maybe I will again launch some hobby, social website with the gallery. Funny, because it turned out that I will probably choose JoomGallery again, because as one of the few components, it allows the users community to manage their photos from the front-end. There are other galleries, but if you want to build a community, you just want to use JomSocial, Easy-Profile or the old Community Builder. JoomGallery is probably the only gallery that has something more than a link to the user's profile - especially in the case of CB, which I will probably choose. This (in my opinion) is your huge (maybe the biggest ;)) advantage over the competition: the truly social character of your gallery component.
Best wishes and thanks.
