With JEA, you can manage properties in backend or frontend interface. You can add multiple images and manage features for each property. There is powerful search capabilities based on component features.
JEA is designed to be flexible and extensible :
Layouts can be easily overridden in your template and JEA can be extended with plugins.
-ACL management (≥ Joomla 2.5.x)
-Rentals and sales management
-Backend and frontend management
-Automatic picture resizing
-Easy gallery management for each property
-AJAX search filter
-Contact form for each properties
-Native translations : French, English and Spanish
-DPE plugin (Energy efficiency)
-Plugin entries to extend the JEA core
What I didn't like is this:
The extra images appear in an iframe and you have to scroll to see them. So that's not user friendly and I don't like having images hidden like that.
Additionally on the detail page there's way too much empty space and everything is really spread out because where there is no data, that space does not go away, neither does the labeling for those empty spaces.
This may be fine for some people, but as a graphic designer, this is hard on the eyes and just not acceptable to me. I probably can get in the code and fix this, but I'd rather find something else.
So, developers, spend a little time prettying it up and it will be a good piece of software.
Very good extension :)
Thanks for your translation.
You can submit your language pack here :
But, to be viable for me personally here is my wishlist:
* Better English Translation (this looks like a 'google translate' translation).
* More options in 'configuration'. Fields are too limited. Would like to be able to add custom fields or remove the ones I dont wish to use.
* Would love to be able to import areas/towns etc, from a spreadsheet or similar. Will take a long time to input one at a time.
I do hope this project is still being actively developed and I look forward to seeing future releases. I have not been able to find a commercial version of this, if it exists, I'd be interested in a demo if the above were met.
I can appreciate the work the author has put into this and sincerely thank him for releasing it to the community for free. I think it's a great starting point for what could be a very nice component for Joomla!. Indeed I look forward to tinkering with it.
In my view the best extensions are free to download and you pay for addons, like List Bingo.
