What do you expect ? Of course we value the opinions and feedbacks of ouRSMembership! - Joomla! membership extension

r clients - we have released RSMembership! revision 9 which comes with new features added and improved functionality:

  • New user email texts are now configured in the RSMembership! language file.
    The reason this method was preferred over the Joomla standard user email is that if you were using automatic membership approval sometimes the link to the site was appended with the path to the Joomla administration panel that could confuse the end user.
  • Share any type of content with memberships.
    As RSMembership! users already know, for each membership you were able to share files and folders. With the new revision, you can share Joomla! articles, categories, sections and links.

Today we've released RSFirewall! Revision 9, which contains a new feature: it cleans the backdoored versions of Jumi from your website. You can read the changelog here.

RSFirewall! - Joomla! security extension

Jumi is a very popular Joomla! component, some of our customers being already affected by this backdoor - so we added this security measure as an extra protection layer to keep our customers' websites safe.

As usual, we advise you to run the System Check and follow the on-screen instructions to obtain a better security rating on your website, keep passwords safe and always be up to date with the latest software versions and the latest threats.

Wondering why in the search engines index, your Joomla! links appear both with and without "www" ?
Until you set the preferred domain to tell search engines how to display URLs in their index, the website will have issues with duplicate content.

RSSeo! - Joomla! seo suite

SEO disadvantages:

The pagerank will be divided to both versions of the website.
Not to mention that spiders will have a harder time to discover the fresh content because they will be forced to index both versions of your Joomla! website. (spiders have limited bandwidth when crawling a website).

This duplicate content issue can be eliminated easily:

1. choose from Google Webmasters Tools the preferred domain
2. set a 301 redirect
