VitaBook 2.1 released

This release contains quite a lot of changes, it adds six new features, three new translations and lots of bigger and smaller enhancements.

The most prominent new features are the new import feature (import your messages from Phoca Guestbook and Easybook Reloaded) and the guest activation email feature (have guests activate their messages via an email sent to the address they supplied with their message).

Furthermore, blocking IP addresses is now possible from the frontend, emoticons can be disabled and administrators can impose a character limit.

The full list of new features, new translations and other enhancements and fixes is available in theĀ change log.

VitaBook 2.0 released

Since Joomla version 3.0 is available for a few months now, it was time to make VitaBook compatible with the newest version of Joomla. Therefore, we proudly present VitaBook 2.0 which is completely compatible with Joomla 2.5 and 3.0!

We've even added some extra features like the option to block certain IP addresses (for posting messages), added hash-links in the admin emails and made styling more flexible.

VitaBook 1.3 released

A new version of our guestbook, VitaBook, for Joomla 2.5 is released. In this new version it is possible to customize VitaBook to your own needs via the config panel from the administrator part of your site. Also some IE7/8 bugs are fixed and spam protection is increased.

An request at our forum was to make the 'website field' optional and add an optional 'location field'. In this release both these requests are realized. For a full list of changes in this release we refer to the changelog.
