ParaInvite is a premium component for Joomla that will take care for viral marketing invitations.ParaInvite is developed by SimBunch, a reputable Joomla developer. ParaInvite is compatible with most popular social network components for Joomla – EasySocial, CommunityBuilder and JomSocial.
Without a doubt every new social network is incomplete without option for viral invitation from major social networks like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook or without bulk email invites. ParaInvite send invitations with ease.
ParaInvite component goes as standard Joomla extension installation, but plug-ins/apps depends on main social network component installed. We've tested ParaInvite with EasySocial on Joomla 2.5.
Set-up is fairly easy, the best thing about ParaInvite is on-screen demo – you see detailed instruction step-by-step, regarding connecting APIs of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc... Our team is experienced with application creation at most major social network and it took us about 15 minutes to complete the set-up.
Everything that you need to create a momentum with help of major social networks and existing contacts. Most notable features are:
works with Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3
Integrates with EasySocial, JomSocial and CommunityBuilder
It is designed over Bootstrap
On-screen set-up instructions
Integration with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn API, etc...
invitations with or without cronjob
Documentation and Support
There is a read me file in ParaInvite package which is short, but actually explain everything that you need, I've already mention, on-screen-demo when component is installed. SimBunch documentaiton is detailed, but it was reported that there isn't any support or support is too slow.
A week after this review, ParaInvite crashed and was not able to safe the configuration settings anymore. Though, we've managed to fix this on our own. After a couple of days 500 error started popping up from everywhere in addition to soft 404.
Buy this extension on your own risk. Unfortunately, we haven't found an alternative, we've tested InviteX in the pass and experience were the same.
