JomLeague to JoomSport convertor developed

Many years ago we started our JoomSport product because we were choosing some Joomla sport component for our local football team. At that time JomLeague was the most comprehensive and well known league management solution for Joomla. That was the product supported by open community. In spite of the fact that it had a lot of features our developer and co-founder Andrew didn't like much the structure of JomLeague so decided to start their own product idea. That is how JoomSport was started more than eight years ago...

Couple of years ago JomLeague stopped their official support due to the lack of community efforts. The last official release was compatible with Joomla CMS 2.5 only so the community had never received the official JomLeague version with Joomla 3 compatibility.

Recently we had a chance to analyze JoomLeague structure on deeper level as number of clients requested to convert their data from JomLeague to JoomSport. We should state that JoomLeague is really great product and it is a pity it has stopped the development. Honestly saying in some specific cases JoomSport still doesn't have the features that JomLeague had many years ago! At the same time technology doesn't stand still so today we have to notice that JomLeague became quite outdated system, in terms of design and CSS styling at least. So many clients have started looking for the way to convert their data from unsupported system to something new, officially supported and better looking.

Our team is glad to announce that we've managed to develop the script that converts JomLeague data to JoomSport database. We have already converted number of clients who are quite happy with the result and we would be glad to share free the script with anyone interested. Still we need to say that migration process is quite complicated even if you have the script itself and in most cases it takes 3-4 iterations to complete the migration perfectly. So our custom development team is actually ready to provide JomLeague data migration service for anyone interested.

Massive Joomla sport templates update

BearDev team is glad to announce release of renovated Kodiak template. 

Kodiak Joomla sport template has quite a long history beginning from 2012. Unfortunately it had been being our secondary product for the longest time and we hadn't been able to pay enough attention to it so the design and features became pretty much outdated. Previously Kodiak template was not responsive and the worst fact that it was not adjusted to JoomSport perfectly. So about half a year ago we realized it would be great if we can renew it to meet the latest design and tech trends. The team accepted this challenge.

During last few months our development team put in great efforts and now we are glad to share with you the results of our work:

  • The new Kodiak template is totally mobile friendly, has responsive front end structure, it has passed cross-browsers and cross-devices testing so we are sure that it performs correctly
  • Back End usability has been adjusted with new features: ability to assign logo, slogan, copyright, specify color combination
  • Implemented original Sign in/Sign up buttons
  • Implemented new high demand positions such as Slider, Breadcrumbs etc.
  • Adapted Joomla Registration page and News feed page, so such pages will blend seamlessly into whole website design.
  • Menu performance has been restructured and improved 
  • New Footer design with separate blocks has been implemented
