Introduction

Content Sharing, Marketing

ParaInvite the most feature-packed viral invites and marketing solution for Joomla!. It is essentially a 4-in-1 software fit for any website:
1. Contacts and Invites Management
2. Namecards
3. Content Sharing
4. Quick Login

  • Get this
  • Favourite
  • Report

It is completely impossible to fully describe the features of ParaInvite 5, so it's highly recommended that you visit the documentation for a detailed description.

It uses OAuth 2.0, the industry standard for authenticating users on 3rd party services, to import contacts and send invites via six fully supported services: Windows Live Hotmail, Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. It is also integrated with OpenInviter to provide additional email services, and supports CSV import and user manual entry.

ParaInvite uses "schemes", a new and completely revolutionary way of creating unlimited types of invites/shares for every part of your website, with fully customizable and multi-language invitation content!

Namecards are mini-profiles that you and your users can customize to display specific and important information related to certain aspects of your site. When your users' friends their namecards and register, they're considered successful invites.

Content Sharing allows your users to recommend and share any type of content and/or page with their friends, which also functions like an invite!

With the Quick Login feature, users can register and/or login to your site with a simple click of a button, using their account details on services like Facebook, Google, Windows Live, LinkedIn and Yahoo.

ParaInvite also displays a user's history of invites (viewable to all), and a complete breakdown of each user's statistics (viewable to administrators).

The Ranking module allows ranking of users based on accepted or sent invites, within a specified time frame (configurable)

Other features include Auto Connections setup, badges, points, and much much more. It's simply too much to list them all here, but here's a quick view:

  • Fully responsive design for mobile devices
  • Integrates with Google Analytics
  • Charts and graphs
  • Plugin hooks that allows easy integration with other 3rd party extensions.
  • Notifies your users (via ParaInvite's own notification system, email, and JomSocial/EasySocial's notifications) when their invites are accepted
  • Allows users to store all unsent contacts so they'll be notified when their friends register at the site
  • Send email invites in batches using cron job (for websites with limited hosting)
  • Rewards users with points
  • Include sending invitations as part of the registration process
  • Badges feature which allows your users to place personal badges on their blogs, forums and other websites to promote your site, and getting points in return.
  • Namecard feature, which is a URL which your users can leave anywhere they want (forum posts, other websites, emails etc), and when people follow this link, they will view their namecards with a link to register on your site. Namecard invitations are considered a successful valid invitation.
  • Allow you to restrict registration to people with valid invitations.
  • More! More! More!

I used this to: I'm using for Joomla component and Jomsocial

I bought a competitive extension with so many errors and I could not install it. My support tickets were not solved for more than two weeks. They kept shifting the blame to me.



I came to this Paralnvite site and I read a review that said 'he sent them a pre-sale message whether they will help.' I did the same and Mike replied me with a yes.



I bought version 4, when I got stranded, I sent them a ticket, and they helped me and even installed everything and version 5!



I will say I am among the first people to be using version 5. Simple and amazing extension!



There are many features from backends including templates of messages I cannot explain it all here. It is good investment.



All APPs are working and send out messages to invites. This is what matter most....I have even integrated it with jomsocial effortlessly.



I recommend this extension to anyone who wants their visitors or web users to be able to send invites to their contacts....



Support: they are fantastics provided you submit your ticket and wait for them to attend to it within 24hrs.


Great extension

Sorry for my bad english.

I had already used this extension in version 3 some time ago.

Now I did not know whether to try invitex or make a new subscription for parainvite. I thought long and looked long time demos of invitex and parainvite. In the end I choose to renew for parainvite.

I'm really glad to did it.

Everything seems to works properly from first installation.

Great works.


Powerfull viral marketing

This extension very important to create viral marketing. I like it. including excellent support, very fast solve my problem. Thank you


We found this great but


Posted on 20 February 2013

This is a good extension but when i buy it i try to figured out some issues, but i have issues that not been solved and the whole extension is not working well, also the support is Zero

Owner's reply: Hi
We clear our support tickets on almost a daily basis, so unless you did not open a support ticket, I'm not sure if the support is "zero". Also, last week was the Lunar New Year, so the company was closed for the holidays.

If you have already opened a support ticket, please remember to check it for replies. You should also receive an email everytime there is a reply.

Great component!

Ive used a few invite systems and have always like openinviter but found the joomla integration a little cumbersome. I purchased this and have to say the install was simple, works flawlessly and support was fantastic. I was also happy to see it uses openinviter as well so you have heaps of options when it comes to importing contacts.


Right, I don't normally leave reviews but this does warrant one.



I was having a problem with another identical type of extension that does the same and was having some big problems with it. I looked at parainvite and pro, saw the reviews and i have to say, they did put me off a bit.



Before even buying i sent in a question to ask that if i could not get it working would they go into my site and sort it out, the response was yes. I thought I would give it a go.



I am happy to say that everything installed perfectly and worked straight away! AWESOME!



I think the app could do with a couple of additions like being able to type someones name into the fb invite instead of having to scroll to find them but it is working very well for me.



So long as you follow the instructions you can't go wrong.


We are using Parinvite pro on our educational website in order to build a larger community. This product is a must for whoever is interested in easily allowing members to invite friends and contacts... Straightforward and work perfectly.

SIMGallery is the TRUE community-driven gallery. Integrated seamlessly with JomSocial, EasySocial, Community Builder and JomWall (JS/ES/CB/JW) it allows your users to create and manage their own albums, photos and videos. SIMGallery mirrors the gallery feature of Facebook EXACTLY! Browsing is as easy as using the arrow keys. Key features: - Media type: Photos, Profile Pictures, Videos, Wall photos/videos - Fully responsive: displays beautifully on ALL devices - Theater mode - Watermark - Facebook photos import - Upload/link videos - Remote storage (Amazon S3) - Advanced access settings - Multiple profile pictures management (optional) - Categories (optional). Search albums/photos based on categories - Tag media, post comments, like media, like comments, report media, set photo as profile picture, download photos, set access levels etc etc - 3 different types of tags: tags of users, custom tags, and keyword tags (that can be set in the configuration). If you have keyword tags set, users can search for media based on these tags. - Migrate existing media from JomSocial and EasySocial. Combine categories with keywords for a truly powerful community gallery! Eg. Categories: Houses, Condos and Apartments; Keywords: 2-room, 3-room, refurbished, new. SIMGallery will now display meaningful search results. Allows you to run specific themed websites for real estate, pets, model agency, photography etc or just general community. The sky's the limit! SIMGallery can be used standalone without the need for JS/ES/CB/JW. However, if you're integrating with them, there are 2 levels of integration: Level 1) Post new activities on JS/ES's wall, JomWall, and CB Activity. Also post notifications for JS and ES users. SIMGallery will remain its own separate gallery, while your users will still be able to use JS/ES's gallery. Useful if you need a community gallery with category features. Level 2) SIMGallery will completely take over JS/ES's photo and/or video gallery (ES does not have videos, so SIMGallery fixes that). All links to JS/ES's gallery will be redirected to the relevant SIMGallery links. SIMGallery will automatically create a new Wall Photos album for every user and display wall photos in them! Your users can continue to post wall photos or videos on JS/ES, and they will be linked to SIMGallery. SIMGallery allows admins to set 2 types of user group permissions: 1) Admins - access and delete all media in the frontend regardless of permissions. 2) Media - create albums and upload photos/videos. Instead of all registered users, you can limit this to particular user group(s). SIMGallery comes with 4 modules: the Albums module, Photos module, Videos module and Ranking module. These modules are super highly configurable, and the Ranking module even allows you to run contests on your website. It also comes with JS, ES and CB plugins that will display a user's latest albums, photos or videos on their profiles. It's IMPOSSIBLE to describe everything here! Please check the documentation for full description.

Improve your website's SEO drastically with SIMNoFollow. The plugin replaces all outgoing links based on 3 configurable settings: Add rel="nofollow" Adding rel="nofollow" to your outgoing links is a well-known method to improve your website's SEO by reducing leakage. Add target="blank" While adding target="blank" to your outgoing links will not improve your website's SEO (search engines ignore this attribute), it's a good idea because it retains your users' focus, instead of losing them to external sites. Add External Link icon Add an icon at the end of your outgoing links so that your users won't be "surprised" when clicking on something opens up a new tab. This is to improve the general user experience, and SIMNoFollow is the only plugin of its kind with this feature.

ProfileURL allows your Community Builder, EasySocial, JomSocial or JomWall users to customize their profile page, group page, or extensions dashboard links, exactly like how it's done on Facebook. It is also integrated with ParaInvite's Namecard links. Want to let your users have profile/group URLs like http://www.simbunch.com/johnsmith? With ProfileURL it's a breeze! Admins can choose to automatically set up the profile URL everytime a user registers, or make it a manual process (like Facebook). You can also choose to allow multiple updates or just once. ProfileURL will auto suggest profile URLs for users based on their usernames, first names and last names. It will also list all the groups owned by the user so he can set up the group URLs. The extension will check if the URL conflicts with other names, like menu item aliases, other users' usernames etc. What's more, ProfileURL will work even if Joomla's SEF is disabled, and for websites that support multiple languages! ProfileURL will also significantly increase your website's SEF. Please read the documentation for details and how you can see this in action. It is also responsive designed and will work on any mobile device. Profile URLs integrations: - EasySocial - JomSocial - Community Builder - JomWall - Kunena - SIMAnswers - SIMContests Group URLs integrations: - EasySocial - JomSocial - Community Builder (with GroupJive) - JomWall Check the demo to see how it works!
