Integrations


Community Builder Integration


Raffle Factory allows you to integrate Community Builder as an alternative profiling system. Raffle Factory will automatically install CB plugins if it detects it upon installation.

To use the CB profile, you must go to Components/Raffle Factory/Settings/Profile Integration and set the User Profile field to Community Builder, then click on Save.
Furthermore, you will need to set up CB by mapping the corresponding fields, click on Setup fields assignments to check the available fields.



CB comes with some assignable generic fields but you will also need to create your own to assign the Raffle Factory fields to the ones from CB. This can be done by going to Components/Community Builder/Field Management.

Check this page for detailed information about setting up your Community Builder fields for our extensions: Community Builder Fields for thePHPfactory Joomla Extensions


Correct field mapping will be required to display information properly between the auctions, profiles and other plugins.

If CB was installed after the auction component, you will have to click on the Install CB plugins button which can be found at the top of the Field Assignment Area.



Love Factory & Social Factory Integration


The same way as for CB you can also integrate Love Factory or Social Factory profiling system. With each of them installed, you can go to Components/Raffle Factory/Settings/Profile Integration and set the User Profile field to Love Factory or Social Factory, then click on Save.
Next, you will need to set up the mapping of the corresponding fields, click on Setup fields assignments to check the available fields.



reCaptcha Integration


To enable the anti-spam features, go to Components/Raffle Factory/Settings/General Settings/Spam Protection. With ReCaptcha you can avoid unwanted bot spam, this will require the guests to enter certain letters or numbers that a computer can not read, thus preventing automated spam messages.

Besides ReCaptcha for comments you can also enable the ReCaptcha Mailhide plugin which works the same way, but it is used when users want to see email addresses.
Other email protection methods are Smarty and Joomla. Smarty obfuscates the source code with Javascript, while Joomla simply hides the email.

For more information about obtaining the keys for reCaptcha and reCaptcha Mailhide and the settings of these features check our Raffle Factory - Configuration Guide.
