Guru beta is here!

Thank you for singing up to be a beta tester for Guru! We’re super-excited about this extension because we’ve been working on Guru on and off for three years! We really wanted to create a training system that’s both powerful and user-friendly. It hasn't been easy but I think we did it!

With Guru, you'll be able to generate income by creating training modules for the topic of your choice. Everyone is an expert at something. Identify your expertise and Guru will help you to earn from it.

The best way to test software is always to use it. Using Guru to create our own Learning Center helped us to find a bunch of bugs and fix them already but I'm sure that there are plenty more that we missed.

You can already see Guru in action on our Learning Center (front end) and on the demo site (back end).

Our beta version is for Joomla 1.5 ONLY. We will soon start working on converting it to Joomla 1.7.

This package includes:

  • Component;
  • Manual;
  • Cron plugin – for sending subscription email reminders.

This package doesn’t include:

  • Payment plugin (included only when you pre-order) - still a few issues need to be fixed
  • Any modules (none are ready yet)
  • SEF Support

Remember, this is a beta version and should not be used on live production sites!

Here’s what we'd like you to test:

  • Adding courses;
  • Adding media;
  • Creating the table of content;
  • Adding orders/students/teachers on the backend;
  • Creating menu items to the different Guru pages;
  • The appearance of the front end on your template;
  • Usability (Are some functions hard to use? How can we make them better?)

What you won’t be able to test:

  • SEF URLs. No SEF is supported at this time. If the site has SEF activated, Guru will not work properly.
  • Payments on front end

Where to post your bugs/suggestions:

We’ve created special pages where you can post your bugs and suggestions:

We’re using the facebook commenting system so if you like a suggestion, just click on the ‘like’ icon. If you have the same bug, click the “like” button as well.

Thanks again for being a beta tester and we look forward to hearing from you!
