New top listings module for Mosets Tree 3
Written by CY   
Friday, 29 March 2013
With the most recent Mosets Tree update, version 3.0.6, I've introduced a brand new version of the popular Top Listings module. If you've install 3.0.6, you'll recognize this as "Mosets Tree - Top Listings 3.0". The new Top Listings modules now provides layouts that used to be only possible when you are using Kinabalu site template. Here's a screenshot on the different type of layout possible with the new Top Listings module.

Top Listings module for Mosets Tree 3

When you create a new module instance with this new module, here are some of the few important Options you may want to know:

  • Default (tiles) Layout
    • Flow: The core of this new module comes from the new Tiles layout. Each tile represents a listing. The Flow option here allows you to control if you want the tiles to be laid out vertically (default()) or horizontally.
    • Hide Name: This option does what it says. When set to yes, the name of the listing is hidden in module. This is useful when you only when to show a list of thumbnails.
    • Image Size: Allows you to control the size os the thumbnail shown in the module.
    • Tile's Max Width / Tiles Min. Height: In most situation, the default layout may not be ideal due to the limited or excess space available to a module. These 2 options allows you to fine tune the minimum width or maximum height to achieve the best possible layout. You can enter values in percentage or in pixels. eg: 33% or 200px.

The old version of this module no longer works, you need to migrate to the new version of Top Listings to continue using the module.

I've also updated the Mosets Tree demo site with 3.0.6. You can see the new module in action throughout the directory. Enjoy!

 
Good Bye Hot Property. Hello Mosets Tree 3.

When I first introduce Hot Property in May 2004, it was an attempt to create an extension for Mambo CMS to allow developers and real estate agents to quickly and easily create and run a real estate websites. It has since enabled creation of thousands of websites based on Hot Property to showcase, not only real estate, but others such as autos, boats, business listings, profiles and many more.

In 2005, I introduced Mosets Tree to take on the directory space by offering a suite of flexible extensions to enable Joomla websites to run any type of directory. Directories that helps Joomla webmaster to organize any type of information that is fast, customizable and easily discovarable by users looking for the information they want.

With the release of Mosets Tree 3, we have taken some of the most popular features from Hot Property and introduce them to Mosets Tree. These includes, but not limited to:

  • Category Association: Allows user to assign a listing to another listing from another category. This essentially allow (for example) a property to be assigned to a real estate company.
  • User Profile: Listings can optionally include a user profile below a listing details page that shows the listing's owner profile. If you are building a real estate website, you can use this feature to show an agent profile with a brief information and ways to contact the agent.
  • Filter: This is an module that can be configured with a set of searchable fields to allow your users to quickly find the property they are looking for.
Using Mosets Tree for your real estate website also means that you'll get to use the rest of Mosets Tree 3 featureset, such as maps, reviews and attachments support. Plus, with the new multi-directory support in Mosets Tree 3, you can run a real estate listings and other type of directories simultaneously with a single instance of Mosets Tree running on your Joomla website. Visit the Properties category on our demo site for a live demo, on how you can use Mosets Tree for your real estate website.

With the merger of Hot Property features in to Mosets Tree 3 now complete, I today announce that Hot Property sales and development will cease as of today, 25 March 2013. All active Hot Property subscriber's support service will be honoured and be available until the end of the subscription period (12 months from the start of subscription).

If you have purchased Hot Property in the last 12 months, a new subscription for Mosets Tree has been credited to your Mosets account. You can login to your Mosets account at http://www.mosets.com/login/ to download and start using it on your Joomla website if you choose to.

Thank you all who has supported and recommended Hot Property all these years. If you have any questions about this or plan to migrate to Mosets Tree from Hot Property, drop me a line and I will assist you in the best possible way.

Tuesday, 25 September 2012
I'm excited to share with you today that I'm nearing completion of Mosets Tree 3, featuring some of the most requested features by our users.

Among the major new features that will be introduced in this version is the ability to assign custom fields to top level categories. This allows you to create unique Add/Edit Listing form that accepts different type listings. As a results of this, top level categories can be set up as directories, enabling you to create unlimited directories through a single instance of Mosets Tree. Each top level categories can have its own configuration, giving you complete control on how they work and display to your needs.

This version will also features Filter. Filter gives you to convenience of choosing or entering a criteria and quickly get the results on the same page. In practice, this speeds up the time spent by your users looking for certain listings.

There are many more improvements (Captcha, new fieldtypes, MT menu types, categories & listings association and more!) that I will be documenting here once Mosets Tree 3 is released.

Beta testers needed

In the coming weeks, beta version of Mosets Tree 3 will be made available to beta testers. If you would like to be part of the beta testing team, login to Mosets forum, go to Group Membership and join the "Mosets Tree 3.0 Beta Testers" User Group. There will be a private forum where the beta version will be made available for download once it is ready.

Tuesday, 31 January 2012
The Joomla project has released their latest version of Joomla 2.5.0, and I'm pleased report that Mosets Tree 2.2.4, that was released earlier, is compatible with Joomla 2.5.

Upgrading to Mosets Tree 2.2.4

If you are already running Mosets Tree 2.2 with Joomla 1.7, upgrading couldn't be easier. All you need to do to upgrade is simply install Mosets Tree 2.2.4 package (pkg_mtree-2.2.4.zip) over your existing installation after you have updated your site to Joomla 2.5.

Joomla 2.5 - Long Term Support (LTS) release

The release of Joomla 2.5 signals the end of life for Joomla 1.6 and 1.7. If you are running Joomla 1.6 or 1.7, you are strongly recommended to upgrade to Joomla 2.5. Joomla 2.5's release also signals the start of a new Long Term Support release which means the Joomla project will support and release updates to Joomla 2.5 for the next 24 months until December 2013.
