We're glad to release some very useful enhancements in our "Offers Extension" for "Directory / Pages Plugin" which further increases the usage possibilities of the "Directory / Pages Plugin". Members can now gain more benefits by posting offers for their Pages on your website:

1) Offers can now contain more information like Coupon Code and No. of Claims. Apart from In-store Offers, Coupon Codes also enable Page Admins to create Online Offers. By choosing a value for number of claims, Page Admins can specify the number of times their offers can be obtained by users.

2) Members can get offers that they see on your site by clicking on the "Get Offer" links for the offers. This will send the offer with its details to the user via email. If the offer is an online one and has a coupon code associated, then the user will be able to use the coupon code emailed to avail the offer. For in-store offline offers, users will be able to take a print of the offer email or take it on mobile and show it at the store. It is thus now easier for users to avail offers.

3) Members can request for offers to be resent by clicking on the "Resend Offer" link if they do not find a claimed offer in their inbox.

4) Activity Feeds for Claiming Offers: As configured by Site Admin, activity feeds will be published on Member Home Page, Page Profile and Member Profile for offers claimed by members.

5) Widgetized Home page for Offers: Like other extensions of "Directory / Pages Plugin", Offers Extension also has a widgetized Home Page which shows collective offers from Directory Items / Pages in an attractive manner, with many useful widgets.

You can choose to place link for this page in the Main Pages Navigation Menu. You can also choose to place the link for this page in your site header navigation menu or in any other menu of your choice.

This enhancement enables you to highlight offers from Pages on your site if offers are important to your site's concept. Example, if Offers for Pages are important feature of your website, then you can choose to show the link for their Home page in your Main Pages Navigation Menu.

6) Widgetized Offer View Page: The main offer page has been made widgetized and you can now configure the layout and widgets for offer page from the Layout Editor.

7) Many New Widgets: We have developed many new widgets which are highly configurable from Layout Editor. These widgets also make the Page Offers Home page very attractive and useful:
- Hot Offers Slideshow
- Hot Offers Carousel
- Offer of the Day
- Ajax based Tabbed widget for Offers
- Most Popular / Viewed / Liked Page Offers.
