Introduction

Core Enhancements, Multiple Sites

VD provides Multi-domain capability for Joomla without changing the Joomla core files and tables. Simply register any number of additional available domains in the components backend and define their properties.

  • Get this

You can run different web sites from a single Joomla installation with specific templates, home page content and navigation.

Virtual Domains simple starting points:

You can select a template from VD's Backend for a specific domain.

You can filter menu items, define domain specific languages and meta data.

VD will create an accesslevel for each domain/subdomain. This will enable you to control all that content that can deal with access levels.

That's all. Small effort, big effect.


Fixed:

Custom Parameters could not be stored

New Features:
+Assigning content to each domain via access levels
+Hide/show menu items per domain
+Dissallow access to certain components per domain
+Override site meta data
+Access for domain speific items for non-admins on backend

+Includes replacement for Joomla Language Switcher


The Virtual Domains Extension is a very powerful multi-domain management extension. One is able to manage endless numbers of domains from a single Joomla Administrator backend in a very easy way. When the extension is installed and domains entered in the admin panel, Access Levels are created for Menu's, Articles, Modules, templates, you name it. So the access levels are for instance the default Joomla access levels i.e. Guest/Registered/Public/etc but when you have created 'Sitename A' and 'Sitename B' They become also visible in the Articles/modules/menu's/templates and more so it is very easy to assign an article or module or menu to either defined sites or to both through "Guest/Public and more. You can assign different templates/styles to different sites with their own logo and content and menu links.

We have used this now on several sites and it is extremely easy to use. The documentation is not that clear and actual needs improvement but as soon as you are stuck and you send a message to Michael Liebler you will be very friendly and professional assisted with clear explanations. If you have multiple sites with a lot of identical content to manage (multi-shops in several countries for instance or similar multilingual sites with different domain extensions (think .eu/.de/.nl/.com )this tool is a blessing and awesome!


Virtual Domains


Posted on 28 May 2014

This is a work of art!!! If you're using CPanel the easy way to get it up and running is in CPanel to just put the addon domains in the same document root as the base domain, create a single article having the same name as the addon domain and then add a menu item to one of your published menus with the same name as the addon domain and then add the domain name to the VD component admin. To Michael, my only suggestion might be to have VD be able to set different featured articles to each domain added to VD. BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your warm words. Have you thought about using the accesslevels to achieve your goal? I think you have noticed that an accesslevel has been created for each domain after creation in VD. So you can simply assign the domain specific access level to an article to show it on that domain but not elsewhere. If you think that it doesn't work for you lets discuss it on the forum (click the support button above).

Seems great


Posted on 14 May 2014

This extensions seems great, but can't get it work, and no answer from the developper.

:(


I added this to my installation about 45 days ago. I wanted to get it running over time before reviewing. It's been great. Installation and configuration was a breeze. I tweaked htaccess to help resolve some cross-domain instances - but that has to do with my setup. Nothing that's a problem with the extension.



I haven't seen any problems with SEO. Actually, it's improved SEO since client sites are resolving as Google, Bing, and Yahoo expect.



I tested out the extensions ability to send email as the parked domain - it worked really well. So well, though, that Akeeba Subscriptions was sending subscriber notifications from the parked domains - unrelated to the domain the user subscribed to. Had to leave those settings blank in Virtual Domains and just live with system emails generated by the installation's domain name.



I haven't experienced any system slowdown with it. Caching seems to work fine. Though, I did discontinue using jbetolo as it got a little confused how to cache info across the virtual domains. It worked, but a savvy visitor would see cached css and js from unrelated domain names. It looks like I could play with the settings more as the newer version of Virtual Domains provides more features that might work around it.



The extension also works really well with Akeeba Admin Tools in play. It was a concern how the two would get along and I have had no problems at all.



Brilliant work, Developers. Thank you.


This extension save me money!

One of my clients asked this complicated joomla setup and this extension saved a lot of hassle & money. It works as it is described. Highly recommended if you are looking to host several joomla sites.


I get this extension for making a multiple subdomained site. This was the best extension, for the Joomla 3.2.1.

For some problems, and sugestions the developer was nice and helpful. All of my problems was solved in the shortest time.



Great job, great developer.

Thank you!



-This component gives the next level for the Joomla!


A new sub domain pointing to a specific page, ready in 30 seconds!

Very good work, guys.


I wanted to have a temporary landing page for my site and another landing page on a different domain for development. Being a complete newbie on Linux backend stuff, I had some initial problems setting up Virtual Domains but the developer worked helped me for 3 days and it's now working. Thanks for all the help and the great extension!


I am using Virtual Domains to realise a multisite:



mainpage

|-mainpagecontent

|-subsite with own mainmenu

|-subsite with own mainmenu

|-subsite with own mainmenu



Every subsite has a mainmenu without any menu item from the mainpage. -> many subsites, ONE Joomla (3.x), ONE DATABASE.



Good component, should support language redirect to domain. (See "Language Domains Plugin".) Could be another plus! ;)


I spent many months trying to run two independent URL's from one core Joomla install. This does an excellent job for me and support was quick too when I hit a glitch moving to Joomla 3.2... support was there and fixed things within 24 hours. So now I've got Virtual Domains working great on my Joomla 3.2 install. Nice. Don't overlook its potential to cover a missing feature which should probably really be in the Joomla core!

Owner's reply: Thank you islandguy. You helped me to solve some problems that I would never have discovered.

So for other people: After migration to Joomla 3.2 your installed VD may fail. You have to update to revision 167 (pkg_virtualdomains-1.2.3-mccoy-j2.5-r167.zip). Get it from http://vd.janguo.de/redmine/projects/vd-main/files.

Just Another Component Creator JACC creates installable Joomla components, modules, plugins, templates and packages, and is a very good starting point for your new extension or template. Install JACC, create a database model, set a few options and click "Save". You will get a working component. Similarly you can create modules, plugins and responsive templates with just a few clicks. After creation you will be able to continue to develop your extension in place. When you've finished JACC will create an installable package for you. JACC's special ability is to create a component by parsing a set of tables based on your data model. The MVC of the created component is now very close to the Joomla coding style. The generated code provides a working 'CRUD' backend ready to add, edit and delete items from the database, as well as a basic frontend which is much more than "hello world". Features: Provides Categories You can use JACC to create install files of your installed components, modules, plugins and templates at any time, assuming they were created by JACC. New: +Components are now very close to the Joomla coding style +Brazilian Portuguese translations - since Décio joined the team +Improved implementation of pluralisation for controller/views/model - since Colin joined the team +Full 3.x compatibility of components backend views Fixed: fixed: pluralization failed on joomla 3.3.1 Select single item from menu in modal mode fixed: bug in tables class fixed: ordering in admin list view did'nt work Remove most deprecated classes and functions
