RokBooster Update Adds Timesaving New Features
Written by Ryan Pierson
Many of our customers may have noticed a new update (1.1.9) has been made available for RokBooster this week. This is a fairly significant update as it adds several new features intended to make its use and application easier for site administration while adding flexibility.
In this article, we’ll examine three major feature additions that have been added to RokBooster for Joomla 2.5 and 3.x users.
All of these new features can be toggled in the Advanced Settings tab found by navigating to Administrator -> Extensions -> Plug-in Manager -> System - RokBooster in the backend of your site. Make sure RokBooster is activated as it isn’t turned on by default.
