Lifestream Joomla Extention

Connect with your social media streams

Using Lifestream you can link to your accounts, usually by simply entering your username. Once you save a stream it is available to be added to a collection (which is a group of streams) or displayed on its own.

Some sites like Facebook require some extra authentication to work, which Lifestream helps you with.

 

 

Lots of options

With 3 kinds of modules and 4 component view types, you have plenty of ways to display your streams. We provide a couple base themes you can use to style them, but you can disable them and set up your own easily with some CSS.

Displaying streams

Streams can be organized into collections, or displayed singularly. You can make a menu link to Lifestream, or display them in a module anywhere you like. Collections can be displayed in a tab, grid, or integrated layout options, in either the module or menu link. There are options on how to organize, arrange, and display your streams, and the styling can be easily overridden with your own CSS styling.

Custom formatting

If you like the way Lifestream looks by default, then you can just plug in your streams and go. However you are able to change the way everything is formatted. Each plugin comes with a way to customize the format of each stream item, such as if you want to remove the icon or timestamp. Also with several style options, you can choose one of the default ones or disable it and create your own.

Access and support

With Lifestream you get 3 months of access to the latest version and our support. This gives you plenty of time to get your site up and running, as well as access to new versions as they become available with new features.
