PunchTab Introduces the Joomla Plugin

Hi Site Owners,

In order to make the installation of your PunchTab Loyalty Program even easier, we’re happy to announce that we’ve recently launched a Joomla module. (Actually, there are 2 modules for versions 1.5 and 1.6.)

If you are already registered on PunchTab, you can install it right now by going to and configuring it on your Joomla administration page. Or if  you were waiting for Joomla support, don’t wait anymore and go sign up on

Managing members of your loyalty program

We’ve added a new option under the Leaderboard section of the PunchTab publisher dashboard: opt out a user from your loyalty program.

When an user is opted out he will not:

  • appear on the leaderboard,
  • be eligible to redeem rewards.


You can at any time put the user back in your program by clicking on the link at the top of the Leaderboard.

This feature was primarily developed to allow publishers to not participate in their own programs but we’ve seen, on occasion, administrators boot members for other reasons! Thanks to all the sites that helped to test.
