Written by CY   
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.

Mosets Tree 3 will be natively compatible with Joomla 2.5 and will released before the end of the year.

Hot Property 1.0 Beta 5 released

Tuesday, 29 September 2009
We're excited to announce the release of our latest update for Hot Property - version 1.0 Beta 5. After months of hard work we have finally completed the overhaul of Hot Property's front-end. Here is the list of new features in Hot Property 1.0 Beta 5:

Unified MVC

Front and Back-end now take advantage of unified MVC framework. In non-developer speak, this means the model and business logic that represents Hot Property's structure is represented in one place making it very easy for developers to extend Hot Property's model in the future.

Mosets Framework

From helping developers to develop better Joomla application faster to improving existing Joomla's function. That is the aim of our new framework called Mosets framework. This new framework is shipped as part of Hot Property and will be the core foundation of Hot Property.

This is available as a plugin, so any developers can use Mosets Framework to help them with application development in Joomla.

xHTML valid and sematically correct code

HTML outputs from Hot Property are now XHTML valid and based on semantically correct markup. It uses the absolute minimum HTML elements to define our data and each HTML elements are carefully choosen to meaningfully describe the content. This is Plain Old Semantic HTML (POSH), built right in to the new Hot Property.

Plain Old Semantic HTMLAll headings use the Heading element (h1, h2 & h4). List elements (ul & li) are used for list of properties, images, agents, companies and anything that is a list. Definition list elements (dl, dt & dd) are used to list all captions/values pairs for properties, agents and companies.

If you are a designer or webmaster who constantly deal with making changes to the HTML code, you will find the new Hot Property template to be a breath of fresh air with semantic code - less noise and easy to understand. Exactly what you need to dive in and make the changes you want.

For end users, they will have pages that loads quicker and more accessible.

There are more benefits to semantically correct codes too. Because the content is easier to understand by human and computers, it tends to rank higher in search engine's results. Since we carefully choose the correct elements to describe the content, Hot Property will inherit the right CSS style from templates that adhere to semantically correct code. You as a designer is less likely need override Hot Property's template.


Agents and Companies' contacts information are now available in hCard format.

Minimal CSS and JavascriptMinimal use of CSS

We set ourself to use the absolute minimum CSS rules while creating a nice and clean layout across Hot Property. The CSS rules has been refactored to be minimal and as lean as possible. It works great with any Joomla site template and gives greater flexibility to designer to customize the styles in Hot Property. Nothing you never need, but has everything that makes Hot Property looks good.

Minimal and degradable Javascript

Javascript usage in Hot Property has been refactored in 1.0 Beta 5. If your users does not have Javascript enabled, it degrades gracefully while still being usable.

Remember your search

Hot Property 1.0 Search module Searching for a 2-bedrooms apartment? Enter this as search to Hot Property and it will remember your search criteria across pages. Improved search support in Hot Property 1.0 Beta 5 which enables shared search keyword across pages in search module and advanced search. Any searches done, will be remembered and stored as session variables. This improved user experience as your users only need to enter a search term once and Hot Property will re-populate the search form again whenever they perform a search another time.

Fields support in Search module

Search module now allows you to select and display multiple fields to be searchable. This used to be Advanced Search page's feature, now it's available to search module too.

Installable gallery

A new hook is added to display photos in properties. This opens up the possibility for third party developers to create custom installable gallery for Hot Property. Hot Property ships with a standard basic gallery.

Menu parameters

Menu parameters are available to all views which allows you to override the main component's configuration.
