In this tutorial I will show how to configure the Joomla Classifieds extension, which can be assigned to any tab of Joomla tabs extension. We start by creating two DJ-Classifieds modules.
Then we will make two Tabs and aim them at previously created modules. Finally, we will create a module, which display it all.
So, after reading this tutorial you will know how to add and display any module ich choosen position by using DJ-Tabs extension.

 

DJ-Classifieds, module configuration

First I’ll show you how in a simple way configurate the modules using DJ-Classifields extension. If you don’t know how to use this extension, I invite you to read documentation of DJ-Classifields.                                                                 We'll find out how to display latest and featured ads. I use JM-Internet minimal Joomla template. Let's get started!

Latest adverts module

To add a module containing the latest ads, go to Modules-> New

Choose DJClassifieds Items

 

Set as follows:

 

 

  1. Title- type title of module
  2. Number of items- choose number of ads to display
  3. Number of columns- specify in how many columns will display ads
  4. Type a unique name for the position, that you don’t use anywhere else for example tab-into-article
  5. Go to Menu Assigment tab

Assign module all pages and click Save and Close.

Featured adverts module

To add a module containing the features ads, again go to Modules-> New and choose DJClassifieds Items.

Set as follows:

  1. Title- type module title
  2. Number of items- choose number of ads to display
  3. Number of columns- specify in how many columns will display ads
  4. Only promotion “Special”- Yes, we want to display ads with promotion.
  5. Choose an unique position
  6. Go to Menu Assigment tab

Assign module to all pages and click Save and Close.

DJ-Tabs, configuration

Now you need to configure DJ-Tabs. If you don’t know this extension, I invite to to read documentation of DJ-Tabs and visit DJ-Tabs product page.

How to Create DJ-Tabs Item which will contain DJ-Classifieds Module

Firstly, we’ll create new group of tabs. Go to Component-> DJ-Tabs->Groups and Click New

Set fields as follow:

Title - type title of your item group

 Set fields as follow:


 

Name - type name of tab item
Group - choose group of item
