We're providing the new beta version of our classifieds script to your hands, so you can check what's new and tell us if all works fine and what should be polished. It is not a complete release, and we have at least one new feature on the list that is not in this version included but will be added in the stable release.
Component users can choose the source for the input hints (adverts, regions, categories) in the "Search module." Selected sources can be freely combined. Previously there was no such possibility and suggestions were displayed from all available sources.
In the Joomla backend go to Extensions->Modules and find "DJClassifieds Search" module using Filter.
Open the module and find the "Autocomplete source" option.
We have added the new option that can be useful if you're dealing with users that are overusing your classifieds website. The available settings let you set the limit of ads that can be submitted. The available options include limits per 5 minutes.
When the limit is reached, the user is redirected to the home page with the suitable message.
In the administration section of user profiles, there is a new “Clear data” button. You can select a few at once and clear their data.
This feature allows you to clear the profile according to the GDPR policy.
In the profile view, there is now a contact form available.
You can easily enable it in the global parameters. Open the DJ-Classifieds component in the Joomla back-end. Choose "Options," navigate to "Views" tabs and scroll down to "Advert view" section. You will find this option there.
There is a new email template responsible for sending this form (ID 34).
In "Custom fields" tab of category edit form, you can assign to all subcategories selected custom fields.
TinyMCE WYSWIG editor in description parameter was extended to "Default Joomla editor" which allows you to use on the front not only TinyMCE but all Joomla editors for example JCE.
Now you can use WhatsApp field which will be automatically changed to suitable link.
Just add word WhatsApp to "name" of the field.
It's good to restrict this field to "only numbers" and enable "Show value on click."
