3rd Party Extensions

Affinity has support for many popular community extensions from 3rd parties. The styling support is as extensive as each application allows. You can see a list, with a short description below for each extension item.

Note: All the extensions below and their peripheries will not be included in the RocketLauncher package. You will need to download and install separately.

3rd Party Extensions List

  • JomSocial Support
    JomSocial is a community / social networking component from Azrul. The extension is commercial and is available for Joomla 1.5.7+ only. The Affinity template has inbuilt support for the component, using the override feature of Joomla 1.5 to restyle the default variations to seamlessly integrated into the July template release. JomSocial is the perfect compliment to a community geared template. Note, JomSocial is not included in the RocketLauncher due to its commercial status.
     
     
  • Community Builder
    Community Builder is an iconic community platform for Joomla. It serves primarily as a profile extended to Joomla, allowing more substantive controls and options for user profiles. The template has individual styling for the Community Builder profile pages for seamless integration and similarly, the component is not included in the RocketLauncher but you can easily download from JoomlaPolis.com.
     
     
  • K2
    K2 is a content construction component (similar to CCK for those acquainted with Drupal), which lets you create custom content types (items) for your Joomla! website. With K2, you can transform your Joomla! website to a news site with author blogs, product catalogs, work portfolio, knowledge base, download/document manager, directory listing, event listing and more, all this bundled under one component. Again, Affinity has styled support for this component to visually integrate the powerful component from JoomlaWorks.gr.
     
     
  • phpBB3
    phpBB3 is a powerful forum, and is the platform of choice for Joomla.org as well as our very own RocketTheme forum. The Affinity phpBB3 style is a product of the RocketTheme phpBB3 styles club and you will need to be a member in order to access the theme. Note: Joomla Template Club members do NOT have access to this theme.

    However, as a community template, the joint launch of bother Joomla and phpBB3 counterparts is important, hence the synchronicity. Although, there are important Joomla elements that should be noted. Firstly, the Joomla and phpBB3 sites are synced via RokBridge, a free bridging component for the two platforms, and a series of modules to extract data from phpBB3 into Joomla are present, such as Latest Posts.
