CB profile gallery to Jomsocial photos

A couple of weeks back, I wrote about a component that can convert posts from CB profilebook to JomSocial wall posts. At the same time we'd also developed another one to convert the images from the BC profile gallery plugin into JomSocial albums.

The tricky part here was the mammoth 5GB worth of photos that needed to be resized and refit to Jomsocial size & standard. I've implemented a batch size option so that only some photos are processed at every run.

The component created a single JomSocial album for each user and adds all their CB photos into that album.

As before, I'm attaching the script to this post so that people who're stuck at the same problem benefit from my script :). It's a simple single file component that you need to put in your administrator/components folder. Once done, simply run the component via the admin -

CB profilebook to Jomsocial wall

Lately we've been receiving a steady flow of requests from people wanting to convert their Community Builder based websites into JomSocial ones. I'm not the best person to comment if this is a good trend, but it definitely does seem logical given the variety of features JomSocial offers. Add to that the developer-friendliness of Jomsocial and suddenly you have everyone wanting a JomSocial community!

We'd recently had one such request where there was a largish Joomla 1.0 based community site that needed to move over to JomSocial.

You'd say - Hey, use the JomSocial migrator (From CMS Market) and you're done. Of course we used it, and all the tables covered by that component were migrated. Though, a big problem I see for that component is that it does not seem to have a staggered import mechanism, so It always gave a memory error or a maximum execution time error. To overcome that I'd to copy that obese half a GB table on to our local development server, raise the limits to ridiculous levels (Both the execution times were made 1500s and the memory limit was 512MB) and then use the Jomsocial migrator. It worked this time and I was able to import the User data, connections and UDDEIM messages! The hits table which is 150M is still giving problems though. Agree this was a crude trick, but was the fastest option considering how fast clients need their projects delivered these days :)

The client also had several extra features apart from the regular CB ones. There were around 90,000 entries (worth 20MB) made using the profilebook plugin. These needed to go as JomSocial wall posts. I did some scrounging around and did not find any good script that did that, so ultimately needed to write one.

I'm attaching the script to this post so that people who're stuck at the same problem benefit from my script :). It's a simple single file component that you need to put in your administrator/components folder. Once done, simply run the component via the admin -

Note that this does not support staggered import either so you might get a memory issue if you have a large table.

We also needed to migrate the profile gallery plugin into Jomsocial albums. Will post the same later.

Fighting Spam in a Joomla Powered Website

SPAM ! This is one problem that any webmaster today has to contend with in his daily tasks. If not dealt with on a fundamental level it can really become a pain in the neck & also end up in consuming time.  Not removing Spam comments /registrations/ forums posts on websites can really be harmful for its reputation & credibility.
