Joooid 1.2 beta

data 20/05/2011

After refactoring at least 50% of the code I'm proud to announce Joooid 1.2 beta release.

The application is pretty stable but I've preferred to release it in beta before to publish it on the Android Market, I'm sure there where bugs that I didn't found, so please report to me any problem in the forum post (see below).


  • Joomla 1.6/1.7 compatibility
  • new article layout: now is possible to edit access level (public, registered and special) and article state(published, unpublishe and trashed)
  • more css configuration parameter: like images border size, hspace and vspace
  • draft manager: you can now save drafts and reload them whenever you want
  • Google maps api v.3: no more api key or third party plugins, you can embed maps without setup anything else than the Joooid plugin or component to you joomla website
  • http authentication : it is now possible to use http authentication (.htaccess) to log on sites

Installation instructions:

In order to use this beta relase you have to uninstall the official stable relase (Joooid 1.2) from the Android Market and install the beta you can find in the download area.

Joomla 1.5 :
  • uninstall the old plugin and reinstall the new one (Joooid 1.2 beta plugin for Joomla 1.5) as described in the installation guide.
  • - uninstall the official release from the Android Market (Joooid 1.1 stable) and install the 1.2 beta release from the download area.
Joomla 1.6:

there is still no documentation but the installation is straight forward

  • install the Joomla 1.6 beta component from the download area, the package contains a component and 2 plugins (xmlrpc plugin and the RSD plugin)
  • you need to activate the Joooid component and 2 plugins (xmlrpc plugin for Joooid and the RSD plugin) you can check in the component panel if the plugins are correctly installed and activated.

Enjoy ;-)

PS : I would like to thank the team, authors of the Movabletype component and plugin for Joomla, Joooid XMLRPC API is based on them project and without them my work would be much more difficult to accomplish. Thank you guys.
