Mosets Tree 3.5 for Joomla! 3 is now available.
Key Features of Mosets Tree.
There is only one menu selection. So if you have more than one directory you can't show them separately without creating an external url. This extension is basically built for one directory with nested categories in that directory.
It comes with a few templates. They don't take the look of the website so you need to manually change them.
Other than those couple of things I think this is a very good component. The customer support I received was excellent.
I have this set up on joomla 1.5 and 1.7 sites.
As said in the comment below NO payment system built in but I use a 3rd party add on and it works fine.
Mosets need to add payment system and street view maps and It will be faultless.

Thanks Mosets Tree for making my sites easy to build and use.
If you're looking to start a business directory which lists one certain type of business - the Mosets is definitely the best choice!
Mosets Tree is absolutely perfect for any directory style website. It is extremely easy to use and full of customizations that you can utilize to make each Version of Mosets truly unique. SEF compatibility, front end and back end flexibility, and its compact sleek design make it a must buy.
I must also mention than even one year after I purchased his product, the developer has been nothing but helpful in assisting me to perfect my own part of the web. A simple thanks could never do enough!
2 major problem that I had with mosets tree are Payment and Language support. There is no payment solution coming with it. There are Payment addons available but non of them integrates completely with Mosets Tree. I created a bilingual website but most of Mosets tree including the name of directory are not translatable even by changing ini files.
Lee found the proverbial needle in the haystack with a problem I had and fixed it! He was in contact everyday until he ruled out all other possibilities and today my site is back to SEF URL's!
Thanks again Lee, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this extension again. :o)
There is incredible attention to detail - and many of the features are very well thought out ... and genuinely *useful*.
I've been with Joomla since Mambo days and I have to say this is probably one of the best written add-ons I've ever used. With a complex component like this, there are always going to be questions (it's highly configurable) and I have to say the support has been amazing. Friendly, fast, and helpful (what more could you ask?). Reading that negative comment earlier, I can only presume Lee must have been on holiday (he certainly deserves one, LOL!).
They were quick to help with pre-sales questions, but post-sale support has been non-existent.
They have a "private support forum" but, as a paying member I can't seem to access this, and requests to get access there have also proved futile.
Decent app, but if you run into issues, beware.
With each one, they would charge an arm and a leg to get this done, it would take days to complete, algorithms weren't perfect, ect.
I finally got fed up with all this wasted time and money and decided to jump into web dev myself.
Shortly after I came across Joomla (which is it's own blessing in itself) but then I came across the Mosets team, Mosets Tree and Lee.
And I can say they are amazing programmers and the component they've developed is user friendly, extremely intuitive, highly configurable and very extensive.
They've also built a template called Kinabalu that has many additional module positions and template styles to suit many different types of directories.
The component comes with 10+ modules to display top listings or featured listings anywhere.
But the greatest part about Mosets Tree out of all of this is the Mosets Community and Support Forum. The activity in the public forum is constant. Which tells you how many satisfied customers they've had who continue to help "support" Mosets. No matter how good or stupid the question is their are plenty of people who help and respond to questions all day long that don't work for Mosets but still very knowledgeable.
But like none other is the Private Support. If you have customizations or modifications you want to do but don't know how to do them, Chances are Lee knows how to do it.
Lee is a legend in himself, and I think his drive comes out of knowing what a powerful component he is developing and he personally enjoys watching how we all extend Mosets Tree into our own vision of ours.
I've already racked up 44 posts through Private Support and Lee continues to solve EVERY SINGLE PROBLEM or QUESTION.
He also has an uncanny ability to make difficult thinks seem easy...
I am so happy with Mosets and MT, i would recommend this component to anyone.
However, there are some features still missing like combined maps, and dual directories on one site, zip code radius and geolocation, but I can tell that this component and it's team are not going anywhere and I will be looking forward to watch them grow this already amazing directory component.
Compare this to the rest and it definitely stands out own it's own.
WORTH MORE THAN THE MONEY I'VE SPENT ON IT!
