Joomanager can literally give your site infinite listing possibilities. Your directory site can be geared towards whatever industry you are targeting. These directory sites can include list directories such as automobiles, or selling homes. By the simplest definition, Joomanager is a Joomla component that gives your site the ability to list multiple items in multiple categories in a directory layout.
The component allows for the creation of custom fields so you can have an unlimited number of attributes associated with a particular item. These attributes are defined in the administration area of the component and can be geared towards any type of site. For example a site that sells/lists: cars, boats, motorcylces, houses and whatever else you can think of.
Joomanager can create an unlimited number of custom fields for descriptions, prices, images, radio buttons, WYSIWYG editors, attachments, hyperlinks, etc. With this flexibility you are not limited to a real estate site or a directory listing site but, with the flexbility of creating your own custom fields, you can create a site geared toward whatever you need.
Google Maps Integration
In the admin side of each item you can enter an address. If you leave this field blank Joomanager will automatically look to the item title for an address. When you do a search via the Joomanager search module we also have a button that allows you to show all your search results on a Google Map. Check out the Joomanager demo to test this out live.
Ad System and Payment Gateways
You can choose between the following payment gateways: Paypal, 2Checkout and Google Checkout. Note that Google checkout requires you to have an SSL cert on your web server in order for it to function, Paypal and 2checkout do not require this.
Pull MLS listing through RETS (Beta)
You can set how often to update your listings in hours. After importing you also are able to add custom fields to each MLS listing imported.
RETS is currently in Beta mode due to some users not able to connect to their RETS servers. We are looking into a solution that will work 100% across the board. Refunds are available if you aren't able to connect to your RETS server.
Item ratings and reviews
You can set the comments to automatic publish or manually approved by the administrator.
Joomanager includes three templates for each page that you can choose from. A template is comprised of basic HTML and can easily be edited with a basic knowledge of HTML. No PHP programming skills are required.
Contact Seller Form
Each form includes a verification image that the user must enter before submitting the form. This form prevents spam attacks on your site via this contact form. Once a user submits their request through the contact form, an email will be sent to the Joomla user account that created this particular item. Also, there is an area in the Joomanager configuration where you can enter an email address that all forms will be sent to.
