DJ-Classifieds update 2.2 beta 4.5 out of 5 based on 23 votes.

DJ-Classifieds BETAThe huge update is on it’s way for DJ-Classifieds. We added and fixed 66 features! The first beta of version 2.2 is ready to download for all DJ-Classifieds subscribers. As you can see from the list below there are many fixes and even more new features (all based on your requests and suggestions).
Hard to tell what’s most important as DJ-Classifieds become really mature product now and you can see it meets more and more expectations for real classifieds solution. However you might like:

  • the new Youtube/Vimeo addition option
  • Joomla native search plugin
  • option to allow adding website address for advertisers
  • option to modify date and time format
  • possibility to assign Joomla user groups to specific categories
  • set limit for characters in title
  • see advertisers IP’s in backend
  • and more...

The below list gives you a quick overview of what was changed, added, fixed.

 

What should I do to test the beta version?
you have two options:

  1. You can just download and install it on clean installation of Joomla (or on site where you want to test it and you feel secure that something can go wrong there [it’s a beta version])
  2. You can do the regular update on your current joomla installation.

Remember that this is a beta, it’s not yet ready for live sites. So if your site is a serious classifieds business built on Joomla the good way would be to make a copy of the site and install it in different location to test all the new features and if the update in your case goes smooth.

After update you should fill the price for the advert renewal - as this option was just added.

Let us know if you find any bugs, have issues with update or there’s anything that worries you.
The best method to contact us is as usual the helpdesk system available in your account area.
