Superblogger extension for Joomla! 1.5

11:26 AM

I like this extension and will make your joomla sit e more powerfull blogging,check it out best features.SuperBlogger is a new powerful plugin adding blogging functionality to Joomla! 1.5 articles. The plugin integrates popular services like Disqus.com (for comments) and Twitter, along with commonly used blogging tools like tagging, rating, bookmarking and social media sharing. Add to that MVC template overrides and the ability to process images server-side and you got a real Wordpress contender, if not better in some areas!SuperBlogger's features can easily be set in the plugin's parameters, so you can choose which elements you want to make use of in your Joomla! website.
FEATURES
SuperBlogger extends standard Joomla! articles like no other plugin has ever done before!
Common features include:
- Integration with the popular Disqus.com comment system (includes video commenting via Seismic).
- Tools for Twitter like 'Tweet this' button, Tweetmeme badge for tracking tweetbacks/retweets, latest Tweets feed from your Twitter account.
- Article rating system using ajax (built-in) or the online service Outbrain.com (for added features).
- Article tags (using the meta keywords field inside the Joomla! article form).
- Article tools like section/category links with associated RSS feed links, stats, date created, font resizer, 'bookmark this' button, social media sharing and option for integrating a social button from services like AddThis or ShareThis.
- Drop-cap feature and introtext emphasizing for cool magazine style typography. The styling can easily be altered on the article page template of the plugin.
- Author tools like author avatar (via gravatar.com) and latest articles from author.
- Image resizing and resampling (server-side) for the first image in your articles. On listing pages (e.g. blogcategory) the image is wrapped with a link to the rest of the article and on article pages the image is wrapped with a link to lightbox popup for displaying the original image which was processed by the plugin. Your website will now have a consistent look, perform better (due to optimal image sizing) and your content editors will not have to worry anymore about resizing images in desktop applications!
- Predefined anchor links with smooth scrolling effects make navigating among the features of the plugin a breeze.
- Option to insert custom HTML at the footer of the article. Useful for adding copyright statements or other generic messages for your articles.
- MVC template overrrides architecture: It uses 2 templates for listing and article pages, with associated CSS files. That means styling flexibility
- You can select to render the plugin on specific (or all) categories and/or menus. So if your site has a "blog" category, you can instruct the plugin to render only there and not in the entire site. The selection is done easily is the plugin parameters.
- It can load any module position below the comments, an option fully configurable in the plugin parameters. Using MVC template overrides or simply tweaking the plugin templates, you can move this position elsewhere or even add more (e.g. some position with Google Ads, another with "related articles" etc.). For more, this is fully explained in the documentation page of the plugin.

MVC TEMPLATE OVERRIDES
The feature trully setting apart SuperBlogger from any other Joomla! plugin is its MVC architecture, currently available in Joomla! for components and modules only. That means you can use HTML and CSS template overrides inside your Joomla! template and completely change the way the plugin elements display on your website! So you can either choose to use the versatile base styling of the plugin or simply override it (both the HTML and CSS code) by copying the plugin's /tmpl folder within your Joomla! template's /html folder. SuperBlogger uses 2 templates for listing and article pages, with 4 associated CSS files (one common, one for Disqus comments, one for IE6 and one for IE7 - just in case). Of course you are able to override all files or selected files, as you would with any other MVC component or module, with the better exception that SuperBlogger overrides CSS files as well!
PERFORMANCE
SuperBlogger improves performance of existing Joomla! websites by resizing and caching the first article image. The cached copies reside in Joomla!'s /cache folder so they are refreshed whenever Joomla!'s cache refresh time is reached. If Joomla!'s cache is not enabled in your website, the plugin uses its own cache expiration time (set in the plugin parameters) and it will refresh your images. Whether Joomla!'s cache is on or off, you can always go to the "cache manager" in the administration and select to manually delete cached copies, whenever you want to "hard-refresh" the resized images.
One more great feature of the image processing mechanism in SuperBlogger is its ability to grab remote images (located in some remote server) and store them locally for even better performance. So if your first article image is located in some other server, SuperBlogger will fetch it, resize it and store the resized copy locally onto your server for better performance.
Caching is also used for your Twitter "status" (the 'Latest Tweets from' feature) thus speeding up the article page significantly.
