Page Manager Pro - for easier management of large site hierarchies

I'm happy to announce the availability of our new add on product, Page Manager Pro, available now in the mojoPortal Store starting at $49 for a Single Installation License. If you have a large site hierarchy with hundreds or thousands of pages you may find that the built in PageTree.aspx included in mojoPortal becomes unwieldy, Page Manager Pro is a drop in replacement for PageTree.aspx  designed to address that problem with an easier drag and drop solution for moving pages around in the site hierarchy. We developed this add on based on requests from some of our customers who have very large sites and we have received  a lot of positive feedback so far. You can try it out on our demo site to decide if you like it better than the built in PageTree.

Updated Skin Exporter Plugin for Artisteer 4.2

We've just released an updated version of our free Skin Exporter Plugin for Artisteer 4.2. The package also still contains the previous version of the plugin for Artisteer 4.1.

The main difference for the new version is that Artisteer 4.2 now uses the latest version of jQuery so the jQuery Migrate plugin does not need to be enabled from the layout.master file exported by the plugin. There were also a few CSS tweaks to fix some issues with jPlayer layout that were caused by the Artisteer CSS.

For those who have already obtained our free plugin please just click the "My Account" link and download the latest version from your order history. You do not need to make a new transaction in our store to get the update, just download it again to get the latest version.

Fund Raiser Pro

I'm happy to announce the release of Fund Raiser Pro, available now in the mojoPortal Store, or take a test drive on our demo site!

Fund Raiser Pro is an add on feature for mojoPortal content management system. It provides the tools you need to do fund raising/crowd funding on your own web site. It has similar functionality to sites like Kickstarter.com and indiegogo.com but you host it in your own site and control it yourself and collect payments via PayPal or any of the ecommerce gateways supported in mojoPortal.

You can also define contribution levels and/or allow users to contribute any amount they want (within lower and upper limits that you can define). Your fund raising campaign can have a target date for reaching a fund raising goal or it can be open ended with no end date, or you can change the end date if you need more time to achieve the fund raising goal.

You can show or hide progress toward your fund raising goal, you can show or hide contributor profiles. Contributors can control their own privacy settings for what is shown on the contributor profile and the administrative settings allow you to make things even more private. That is, you can hide information that users marked as not hidden, but you cannot show information that the user chose not to show. For example the contributor can show or not show their name, city, state, country and contribution amount for example. As administrator of the site you could choose not to show the city and state and country even if the contributor said it was ok to share that information. In some cases you may want to show the contribution amount, in other cases you may not or the contributor may not want to show that information. You can optionally allow users to edit their own contribution profile or change privacy settings. 

You can also allow people to post comments and you can post updates to keep people informed on the progress of the campaign or project. You could also use the mojoPortal Newsletter feature to keep in touch with your contributors and encourage additional contributions. If you have defined levels and are allowing users to contribute arbitrary amounts, then a subsequent contribution can move a contributor up to a higher level by aggregating with his or her previous contributions. There is also integrated social sharing using the add this widget to encourage sharing your campaign on social networks such as Facebook and twitter.
