Key Features of Mosets Tree.
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!
(just in time communicating back and forth with Lee...not including the actual script!)
In my opinion the best of this extension is the easy way to update the component and keep it up to date and the support is excellent.
Although you can adapt the template to your need i also miss another free template as most of the people are not web designer but Joomla! administrators/programmers.
That said, their support was incredible. I am guessing they are in a difference time zone as their responses always came very late night but they always came. The person supporting me put up with dozens of emails with step by step instruction to get me setup and running.
I would recommend this product based on their support alone.
I've searched for many components to do what Mosets does, but never met one that fitted my needs perfectly, neither did Mosets! Mosets came closest to my needs.
I wanted to customize it so it would fit my needs and due to lack of knowledge at times I made use of the support! And I must say it is beyond excellent, it's superb:
- Quik anwers (mostly the next morning).
- They try to think with you! So not just answering but really trying to help (and think with) you.
Not only is the component easy to install, configure, and utilize, but the support is also incredible. All inquiries are answered quickly and accurately, and the Mosets team works hard to help you in any way possible via a private forum just for your account.
Thumbs WAY up to the Mosets development team!
