Key Features of Mosets Tree.
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...
It is an extremely flexible component that can be easily tailored to do what you want it to, so don't think that you have to stick rigidly to a basic directory-style setup if you don't want to. The default m2 template is easy to customise, but if like me, you want to integrate MT into your site which uses a different, non-MT template, you'll find it fits in really nicely without any fuss.
One of my favourite features (and it's a very simple one) is the ability to add a single listing across multiple categories. This is great from a cross-selling perspective, if that's what you want, and it also makes your directory extremely logical for users.
Support is absolutely excellent. I've read comments from some other members who have suggested that this is not the case, but I can honestly say that every time I have asked for support, I have received it on the same day.
If you're caught in two minds about whether or not your should pay for MT when there are plenty of other free directory components out there then I would say it is worth every penny and you will agree with me when you have got it up and running. It is flexible, extremely stable and comes with top-notch support, so really, what more could you ask for?
Let's be honest, a product is worthless without a good support. Mosets offer the best support by far (I have tons of other commercial components and SOME of them are plain useless!). Quick and precise solution, their support are among the best I've seen.
You might see some complains regarding support but it isn't Mosets fault at all. Some of them require dedicated custom job hack which shouldn't be blame on their support. Impressively, they do advise and sometimes lend some of their precious time to help those who need (usually top requests) say some extra functionality on this awesome component.
Mosets tree is mainly directory listings comp., but with your creativity, it could be something totally better than just directory.
Review is just for the first impression; try it yourself. I promise you'll thank yourself for later on.
