Community Builder plugin

This integration enables you to display, on your CommunityBuilder users' profiles, the latest entries that they have submitted using RSDirectory!.



Installing the plugin


This is done in a custom manner, through the Community Builder installer, not by using the standard Joomla! one. Please follow these steps:


  • Head to Components >> Community Builder >> Plugin Management.


  • Scroll down to the Install New Plugin area, browse for the plugin installation file and click Upload File & Install (or provide the full, written path and click on Install in the Install from directory area).


  • You should see the message below if the installation was completed successfully, click on Continue ...:


  • After installation, please make sure that the plugin has been published (within the same CB Plugin Management area), as illustrated below:
