and we've written a simple component to interface with that system.

If you are a registered user and you used you account email to buy the package your purchase will show it in your orders @ http://jrumblr.com/my-stuff/my-purchases.html

Otherwise, you don't even need to login to get the package, just keep the email that you received when you purchased the package. The download link will be good for one year from the date of the purchase.

No more Automatic log out button

Written by Cameron

Recently Facebook removed the autologout attribute from their <fb:login-botton> xFBML tag. This means that the Login/Register button will show and do nothing once the user is logged into your site/application.

All JFacebook users should upgrade to at least version 1.5.3, which is now available @ http://jfacebookjoomla.com/download-jfacebook.html.

For this latest release we are providing a 40% discount on JFacebook 180 and JFacebook 365 to the first 25 users to upgrade/purchase the package. The offer ends on October 31, 2012.

Use Rocketheme Templates? Popup Login FOR YOU!!!

Written by Cameron

Here are a couple of "Layout Overrides" for all you guys who use RocketTheme templates (I love em).

If your Facebook login/logout buttons aren't working properly in the Popups, just upload these guys to a folder in your current template directory called "html/mod_jfacebookloginmodule" (You need to make the directory, before you ask, ;)).
