Extension Specific, Community Builder extensions

This COM manages user profiles in the Community Builder environment in Joomla. The original CBJUICE package supports Joomla 1.0 and Joomla 1.5. It facilitates the editing of the user and comprofiler fields using a CSV file as input. This version provides limited support for JUGA. The original version is essentially stable. No more features are planned.

CBJUICE2 is a complete rewrite of the original concept. The new version includes delete by CSV and other useful features. This new version makes substantial use of the excellent CB API. CBJUICE2 supports only Joomla 1.5 and 1.6 and 1.7-3+. It’s use in 1.6 REQUIRES the stable version of Joomla 1.6 and CB Version 1.4 or later. Joomla 1.7/3+ requires CB 1.7 or later. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO use earlier versions of 1.6 or CB in combination because of changes in the ACL. We have tested the component as thoroughly as possible but NO warranty is offered. The newest version supports multiple usertypes in 1.7 and also limits the fields in the save function.
Please note, the support forum and the latest version are always on joomlacode at
Please use the correct version for your respective version of Joomla.

Excellent tool to migrate data between different versions of Community Builder 1.91 to version 2.06
Ease of use
It is fairly intuitive, although some additional documentation regarding options would be helpful.
Could not find an active site or location for a support question. Was unable to get registration date and last visist to move.
I used this to: I migrated a CB based web page from CB version 1.91 on one site to CB 2.06 on new site.
If it Exports thumbnail images also to Excel, It will be Great.

But Thanks for the Great Component.

This component saved me a lot of time, but still has some problems with other delimiters than the standard one. Won't work with semicolons (and as i use a german excel to generate csv files i do have them as delimiters). But after a quick search and replace you have a wonderful component to import users.

Works great

Works really great. The interface might need a little face lift though, and I couldn't get the exclude field to work, but it doesn't matter.

This component saved my father ALOT of work.


Owner's reply: The exclude fields currently works only with the "process option" on the main screen since it is possible to also enter the excluded fields on that screen. I plan to modify the code to pickup the exclude option values by default on the save menu item when I have time. However, as this is a free component, that will have to wait until I have a bit of free time.

CB Juice is GREAT!!

We love CB Juice;; simple clean and it WORKS!!! One suggestion would be to expand the report download capabilities; ie. arrange data fields, limit fields, etc in some basic report format..

Thanks so much for what you have done.... Great job...

Great component

Installed on Joomla 1.5.15 with no problems.

I then did an Export of the user fields to check the csv file, and used that as a template in Openoffice.Org, created a csv file and successfully added over 3,000 users with no problems.

Also made changes to user data in my spreadsheet, regenerated a csv and updated the users with no problems at all.

Thanks for an Excellent Component
I just installed this extension and I already love it! I can click one button and the member list is downloaded to my computer in csv format. And it appears to be very easy to upload additional members too!
I had to download Open Office first before I could get a good csv-file, but after that no problems at all! It saved me a lot of time. Thanks!
I have tried this one and works excellent!

There is one issue I have found, the CB User ID is not retained or at least there is no option to retain the CB User ID during export and import.

After my successful import and export, my kunena forum threads were pointing to different users as result.
Owner's reply: You are trying to use the package for use that it was not intended to fulfill. If you are doing a migration of a site, it is much better to move tables with migration tools that link packages and associated tables. That is mysql work. If you are not sure how to do that, try to find a firm to support you. (p.s. I don't= cbjuice is a hobby).

CBJuice does not modify the userid because there is no guarantee that it will be the same if you are moving users between sites via an add. I can consider a user-beware option to userthe userid on an ADD only. It could lead to significant corruption. Put this kind of comment in the help forum and we will see what other users suggest.
This extension just saved me (and therefore, my client) a whole bunch of time. I was trying to figure out how I was going to pre-populate their user and CB tables with their existing data. I figured I'd have to write several queries and push data all over to get it to work.

That's when I found CBJuice. It did ALL of the work for me, and did it absolutely perfectly. All I had to do was name my fields in my TXT import file to match the user/CB field names and CBJuice did the rest. Perfectly imported and set up all of my custom CB data!

Not only that, but it allowed me to define a custom email to automatically be sent to each user imported, letting them know exactly what was done. This was perfect, as it allowed me to give the users specific instructions pertaining to my client's wishes.

A very BIG thank you to the developers of CBJuice!!!
