EasyDiscuss 4 - Joomla Forum Engine At Its Best

2016 is going to be a great year for Joomla! lovers. Last week we released Quix the most advanced page builder for Joomla and yesterday our friend at StackIdeas released EasyDiscuss 4!

EasyDiscuss is the only piece of software we use to help our customer for their support enquiries. StackIdeas the company behind the product has taken the forum into new height and we are really excited about it. Why we are excited? Glad you have asked.


EasyDiscuss 4 brings some awesome feature in table that will help us to give your more robust support than ever. Here is my favourite feature list :

Forum View

This is the most missing feature on previous version and EasyDicuss 4 finally comes with the forum view and I know most of you will like the view.

Private Ticket

Now you can ask question privately and only our support agents can see them. You can use yoru forum as ticketing system, isn't it great?

Prioritizing Ticket

We often get lost with support request and bug report. This feature now allow us to filter and prioritize our tasks better.

Slack Integration

Starting this year we completely moved to Slack and this integration is my fav one. From now one, we’ll get notification whenever you ask anything or reply your post instantly.

Better Reporting

Now we can see what's going inside the support system using a birds eye view. This will help us to monitor forum activity deeply.

Besides my favourites, there are lot more feature that makes EasyDicuss4 the absolutely best forum and support software for Joomla. If you ever need a question answer or forum extension for Joomla, EasyDiscuss is the answer.

Quix Meets T3 Framework - Create a Joomla Website From Scratch in 10 Minutes

Quix Meets T3 Framework - Create a Joomla Website From Scratch in 10 Minutes

In my previous article I showed you how Quix works with Gantry framework out of the box. This time I'm running a test with the most popular T3 Framework for Joomla! As expected Quix is running seamlessly with T3. If youre website or template is powered by T3 framework you can use Quix page builder without having any issues.

If you are not aware about T3 let me explain, this is the most popular, modern and flexible Joomla Template Framework build with Bootstrap 3. Joomlart the company behind T3 framework, did a fantastic job and open sourced the project on GitHub.

Lets create a beautiful page with Quix page builder and T3 framework with almost no coding. If you are a Joomla Template developer you need a little preparation which won't take you more than 5 mins work. Keep reading, I'll show you how?


Installing T3 Framework with Blank Template

If your website is already running with T3 you can ignore this step. If you want to create a Joomla template with T3 framework, download T3 package from T3 official website. The package contains framework plugins and blank bootstrap based template. Now install it from Joomla Extension Manger.

Full Width Control to Quix Page Builder

T3 default template comes with a container class. If you are a developer you will know what that means but if you are not a developer, container class will add width to an element and position it to the center of the webpage. Quix can run inside the container class but if you want to get rid of the extra space you can follow this.

Open no-sidebar.php file from templates/t3_bs3_blank/tpls/blocks/mainbody and paste this 2 lines of code:

$input = new JInput();
$container = ( $input->getCmd('option') === 'com_quix' ) ? '' : 'container';

With this code, we are checking if Quix loaded on this page or not. If its not loaded we'll add container class or else remove it. Now it will replace this line

<div id="t3-mainbody" class="container t3-mainbody"></div>
with this
<div id="t3-mainbody" class="<?php echo $container?> t3-mainbody"></div>

Now we need to remove some padding from T3 element and add this code to any file you want but we recommend style.less

.com_quix{
  body{ overflow-x: hidden; }
  .t3-mainbody,
  .t3-content{ padding-top: 0; padding-bottom: 0; }
}

Head over to you template settings and click Less to CSS button to compile less code into css

Install Quix

Installing Quix is as easy as installing any other extensions. Grab Quix page builder for Joomla and install it from Joomla Extension Manger

Create a New Page

After installing Quix you will see a dedicated top menu. Click there and then click New Page button.

Give your page a name and start dragging row, column and elements to the page. Here is the layout screenshot of the page we are working:

The "Quicx" is now called "Quix", isn't that mouth waterring. Yes it is, but now you must forget what was left behind, now we must live in this moment. And the change of the name obliged us to change the article.
