Already Bought plugin for J2Store digital products

These days I had a little free time to write a simple App for J2Store Extension. That’s about Downloadable products in J2store. Yes, if you have a file shop with J2store, maybe this app is suitable for you. 

In Joomla, J2store is one of the best extension that you can sell files through that. But in my opinion this extension needs be smarter. For example if a user has bought a digital product, it's better to know about that and site alert to him. 

Currently J2Store hasn’t this feature so I made that with a simple app: Already Bought. Already Bought is a plugin that if a customer is in product view, he will get a message that you already bought this product and can download it in your profile. Plugin can hide “add to basket” icon, also works in category view or native latest product module.

These are primary settings :

  • Show message to user
  • Show icon to user
  • Hide [add to basket] button
  • Available in category view
  • Custom CSS code
How to fix Joomla and extensions update error

How to fix Joomla and extensions update error

In this post I just want to explain 3 general errors that users maybe face with that when they want to update kernel of joomla or setup a new extension or update it 

 So we are going to red section! 

Notice that we consider English language and maybe you are using different for backend.


1 Could not open archive part file ... Check that file exists, is readable by the web server and is not in a directory made out of read by chroot, open_basedir restrictions or any other restriction put in place by your host.

This error appears in a simple popup. We suggest that go to "Global Configuration" menu in backend and check the tmp path (and also logs). Because Joomla needs to transfer setup file from it server to yours. It should be like one of these lines :


And for logs folder :

  • [user] is the folder name of your host. To find that you need to open file manager of your host. It depends to your server configuration.
  • In some servers "home3" used other than "home". This item also needs to be checked by file manager.
  • Above correction usually should be done if you transfer site from local or another host.
