Today we are happy to introduce DJ-Classifieds version 3.9.2. With this update we 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.
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 own field in the Search module.
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.
Another new parameter available in the admin Field Edit page, for defining placeholders for custom fields displayed in the Search module (additionally to custom fields placeholders used in the Post Ad form).
New parameter in DJ-Classifieds Options -> Global, allows to show items only with the exact searched for word.
The 'Map Provider' parameter is no longer locked on the "Google" or "Leaflet (OpenStreetMaps)" (if the corresponding plugin 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.
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.
The component's router has been partly rewritten, improving routing for some views, and resolve 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 Search module and choosing the best category/region page to redirect for showing the search results.
Changes across the component, modules and plugins have been made, to provide compatibility with the latest version of PHP.
The new [[payment_date]] tag is available in all email templates supporting payment data.
The "batch" option of the admin profiles page has gotten the new "Remove from User Group" and "Set Profile Field Group" options.
The additional Subscription Plans plugin has now an option to allow users to have only one active plan at a time.
The additional Coupons plugin can now be enabled for specific payment types.
The additional Files attachments plugin can now be enabled in registration page.
This update also brings a bunch of other improvements and bug fixes.
