And the support is absolutely amazing, any request is replied in a few hours or less.
I am disappointed as I am not able to do the following in the admin area easily;
1. Not able to add customise listing columns under navigation, ( i could not see the column I want to see under navigation)
2. Not able to sort on "Published" under navigation. ( sort is only available on core fields. With a large listing I find it tedious to search or find a listing to update, as listing could not be grouped under "published")
Help/support is excellent and accurate.
I have installed it on two sites (catdog.com.au & find-a-limo.com.au) and will probably purchase another for a new site coming up.
The latest version has some very good additions and improvements over previous versions - well worth it.
I can highly recommend this component AND the developer if your looking for a professional catalogue application like Hot Property.
I tried it with almost 59000 links in one category and that wil drop your mosets admin area.
It takes upto 30 seconds to even show the admin page and the frontend is just as bad.
the links added have title,a few lines description and weblink,thats it.
On a test i did while going to my mosets admin page this is what my server showed:
Server Load 1.91 (4 cpus) (before request)
Server Load 5.16 (4 cpus) (during request)
Its also to bad it takes so long to release a native version.
However,its good for smaller sites.
We have quite a number of users running large directories without the said performance issue. 30 seconds to load a page is not normal. If you can get in touch with me at http://www.mosets.com/contact/, I'll see to it to get this resolved.
I've just completed a site for a trade association that wanted to have a directory of its members. Mosets tree gave me the flexibility to tweak it to their exact requirements, almost completely without having to hack code.
Furthermore, the support I had was excellent. I had the nightmare of exporting data from a legacy Access database, but the built in importing facility made life quite easy. When I did hit problems the Moset support team got answers to me usually within 24 hours.
(I also have another site that's been running with Mosets Hot Property for a few years without problems).
Cannot recommend this highly enough.
I highly recommend Mosets Tree. The code is well written, and Lee, the creator, gives excellent, timely support in his forums (he even has private, one-on-one forums.)
Great software. Easy to install and configure. Great support.
I finally gave in and obtained a copy of Mostes and I must advise ALL to make the move!
a) The SEO, it is perfect, it works, every module installed just absolutely works with Joomla standard SEF. IT WORKS! Meta Tags, Keywords, ALL WORKS
b) field customisation, alghough a clone feature would be great, solutions available and IT WORKS, IT EASY to configure custom fields and it WORKS!!!
c) Intallation very easy, configuration, very easy, SPEED, it uses less tabes so very very fast.
d) Support is fantastic, they have a PRIORITY SUPPORT forum room, where I must say, SUPPORT was fantastic, even mods to a module was done for my needs.
WISH LIST FOR FUTURE VERSIONS:
Cloning Feature or ability to assign different fieds to different categories.
Thank you for an awesome component with excellent modules and working SEO out the box. GOOD WORK MOSETS TREE!!! Look forward to all future versions
Like most publishers we are reluctant to upgrade anything as we all know the risks invloved... but was pleasantly surprised by the new features of version 2.09 - lots of features built in so they have done their homework.
Had a few issues which were addressed by the developers so happy in that regard.
Some people complain about prices of components but lets face it - if you have a commercial site $100 isn't much for a core part of your website...
One ideal feature is the ability to assign a listing to multiple categories, in our case we have wedding suppliers in various categories (ie Photographers, Venues, Cakes etc) and we then able to assiign them to their local region category - perfect for a directory.
There doesn't seem to be a manual but if you can work Joomla you should be able to master Mosets Tree - if not the developers answers questions promptly.
Someone else made the point - of course if joomla.org uses it on this site then it must be good...
