HWDMediaShare provides an integration with JomSocial. JomSocial is a Social Networking Extension for Joomla that allows registered users to create profiles, share content and interact with other users.
This documentation is written for Joomla 3, and refers to HWDMediaShare version 2.
The JomSocial integration provides the following features:
- Displays JomSocial avatars in HWDMediaShare.
- Creates user links from JomSocial that point directly to JomSocial profile pages.
- Insert records into the JomSocial social stream when users upload new media to HWDMediaShare.
- Assign points in the JomSocial User Points system when users upload new media to HWDMediaShare.
- Add links to HWDMediaShare in the JomSocial toolbar.
- A dedicated JomSocial App that displays media uploaded by users within the JomSocial profile pages.
You'll need Joomla 3, HWDMediaShare 2 and JomSocial 4 installed. The integration is provided through plugins in the Premium Addons, so you'll need a Premium subscription or higher.
