[SNEAK PEEK] DJ-Classifieds 3.8.2 and New Demo Page 2021

26 November, 2021

Test and give feedback on our latest Demo Page for DJ-Classifieds built as a working classified ads portal. We will constantly update it to reflect our users' requests so if you have any suggestions on what you'd like to see there - let us know!

Please note that the demo works on DJ-Classifieds 3.8.2 which will be released soon.

About the New DJ-Classifieds Demo Page

The new demo we build utilizes DJ-Classifieds core component (modules and plugins) and some of the DJ-Classifieds Apps (Ajax, Coupons, Search Alerts, Subscription Plans), DJ-MediaTools integration to display images in adverts. We also use it to show random adverts on the front page and related adverts on advert pages. For seller ratings, we have used the DJ-Reviews component that integrates with DJ-Classifieds.

The demo is a ready solution that we will soon convert to the Quickstart that we will release, ready to install and adjust to your needs.

Modified Joomla Template for Classified Ads Portal for New Demo and Upcoming Quickstart Package

The modified template the new demo uses comes with adjusted mobile views with new bottom bars for more straightforward navigation.

The Frontpage

Essential parts on the front page contain:

  • the search with autocomplete feature turned on,
  • list of the categories,
  • promoted offers area that lists the promoted adverts (with DJ-MediaTools Horizontal Swipe layout used),
  • tabs with Latest, Popular, and Random adverts,
  • the map (we used Google Maps, but it could also be OpenStreetMaps),
  • Links to the adverts by location

Listing Page

We set the Adverts listing page to display the adverts with the smart table layout (it's also possible to use the Blog layout).

On the left sidebar, you'll find the search and filter module for easy filtering. We used the "Ajax App" there for instant results. Choose a category in the module (or use any other available fields), and the system will instantly filter the adverts.

Advert Details Page

The detailed advert page displays all the needed information for a successful advert.

Profile Details

Each advertiser has his profile page with the details. As with any part of DJ-Classifieds, you can deeply customize the fields displayed here and what should be filled by the advertiser.

dj-classifieds profile details

This page contains:

  • profile name
  • a description where users can write about themselves
  • custom fields (in the case of this demo, there are contact details and a logo of the company) (unfilled fields are not displayed, so it's up to the user to fill them or not. The administrator can set the fields as required if he wants to force users to fill specific fields)
  • location of the advertiser with the map
  • ratings of the advertiser (with use of DJ-Reviews rating and reviews Joomla extension)

Profiles Listing

It is also possible to list all the profiles of users. For this purpose, there's a "Profiles" page with listed profiles and the search in the left sidebar.

Backend Statistics Module

In the backend area of DJ-Classifieds, we used the Admin statistics module to display the current stats of the adverts.

What's New in DJ-Classifieds 3.8.2?

DJ-Classifieds 3.8.2 will come with many adjustments and new features.

Improved Performance

One of the most significant changes is better performance. We were working hard on optimizing the component and modules, and now we have confirmed that DJ-Classifieds is capable of running 500.000-800.000 adverts. That's a massive jump in performance that also makes loading listings and adverts much faster than ever.

Backend and Code Changes

Other changes under the hood make as closer to the Joomla 4 version. You'll notice that in several back-end views, we reorganized the fields to be ready for the new Joomla version.

More Details in the Control Panel

The back-end panel will notify you about all the plugins and modules' latest versions to keep you updated and never miss the updated part of the extension.

Master E-mail Template

We have added the Master email template for email notifications. This way, you can beautify all email notifications and keep consistency between them for better brand awareness. It's now enough to update only one template, and the email notifications contents will nicely fit in.
