DJ-Classifieds version 3.9.2 Brings Many New Features and Changes

16 September, 2022

DJ-Classifieds version 3.9.2. with the update, continue to improve the Joomla classified ads extension. The latest update comes with new features and improvements. Let's take a look.

We want to remind you that the DJ-Classifieds component has been fully compatible with Joomla 4 for some time now.

All active DJ-Classifieds extension subscribers can download and use the latest version 3.9.2 stable.

New Features

'Use in Word Search' Field Option

Text custom fields can now be set to be searchable using the Search module's main input text field, without the need to show their field in the Search module.

'Sortable' Field Option

It's now possible to sort by custom fields on the list. To do it, set the field to be displayed in the chosen items layout (classic table/smart table/blog) and enable the new 'Sortable' option.

'Search Placeholder' Field Option

Another new parameter available in the admin Field Edit page, is for defining placeholders for custom fields displayed in the Search module (additionally to custom fields placeholders used in the Post Ad form).

'Search by Whole Words Only' Option

A new parameter in DJ-Classifieds Options -> Global allows showing items only with the exact searched-for word.

'Map Provider' Disabled

The 'Map Provider' parameter is no longer locked on the "Google" or "Leaflet (OpenStreetMaps)" (if the corresponding plugin is enabled) value.

This change allows choosing the new "None" option, in case you don't want to use any Maps/Location services on your site.

'Subcategories List's Header' New Option

The option previously available for regions is now available also for categories.

Both regions and categories also gained a 'Apply to whole level' checkbox, to quickly set the needed text for all categories of the same level.

Routing Improvements

The component's router has been partly rewritten, improving routing for some views, and resolving any problems happening if there are no menu items created for the corresponding menu items.

The advert front-end Edit page's URL structure e.g. is now "/additem/24" instead of "/additem?id=24".

The routing changes can also be noticed in terms of the Search module and choosing the best category/region page to redirect for showing the search results.

PHP 8.1 Support

Changes across the components, modules, and plugins have been made, to provide compatibility with the latest version of PHP.

[[payment_date]] Email Template Tag

The new [[payment_date]] tag is available in all email templates supporting payment data.

Admin Profiles New Batch Options

The "batch" option of the admin profiles page has gotten the new "Remove from User Group" and "Set Profile Field Group" options.
