Version 3.6 stable of the best classifieds ads for Joomla is here. As usual, we introduce new features, fixes, and enhancements.
You can learn about all the changes in the changelog.
List of most important changes:
- Promotion Durations
- Recently Viewed Ads
- Custom Google Maps Styles
- Date format in custom fields
- Email tags in order
The most significant new feature is Promotion Durations. This new option lets you set different durations for promotions that are independent of the advert's duration time. Until now the chosen promotion lasted as long as the advert was published if the promotion was chosen by the advertiser during ad's submission.
The good example of the setup will be when your user submits new advert for 30 days of publication; he can now choose the promotion of the advert to last for example only seven days (earlier the promotion would last for 30 days). You can also set different prices for each promotion's length.
Learn more about this new feature from the article: Promotion Durations.
Another cool feature you can find in the Items module is Recently Viewed Ads. The powerful Items module has now the new feature that allows you to do that. Set the ads limit and storage time, choose the function in the module, and you are ready to go.

We have added neat little functionality that will change the way you look at Google Maps.

We've also added the option to disable mouse scrolling the map - check how to disable mouse scrolling on Google Maps module and in advert details.
Now you can customize them. DJ-Classifieds provides different extra field types: input box, text area, select list, radio, checkbox, link, date, date from-to.
Now every date field can have a different format, and in case your website is multilingual it will also translate months to the chosen language.

We have adjusted the way e-mail tags show up under e-mail templates. From now under each one, you will see only tags that can be used in the e-mail template you are editing. This little change will make working with the email templates more convenient.
