Myhome for Joomla! 1.5


  

MyHome for Joomla! is a component for Joomla 1.5, for publishing houses within web sites. The visitor can search for a vehicle by setting selection filters in the “Vertical search module” or “Horizontal search module” or by clicking on a specific module by viewing the list of Hot Houses, etc. The list of houses can be grouped by price, contract type or category. The house main image and information are shown within the list of houses. By clicking on the [DETAILS] button for each house, all the information and images related to it will be shown. N.B. An house may have an unlimited number of images. Unlimited fields can be set up for each house. In the component configuration panel it is possible to create or delete any of the fields required for managing your fleet of houses. It is also possible to add fields later. The fields which can be created may be TEXT type (in this case they will contain a value entered manually) or CHECK type (in this case they will contain a YES/NO value). A TEXT type field could be, for example, “Surface”, whereas a CHECK type field could be “Panoramic view”. (See the “Configuration” section in this manual).

The front-end is completely devoted to the end user. In the front-end it is possible to search for houses by using the search panels and the modules, looking at the specifications and expressing your interest in a house via email to the vendor.

As shown in the previous image, at the bottom of the list there is a link to return to the summary house list. As you can see, from ere the user can also send an e-mail to the real estate agency to contact the vendor. The vendor receives an email with the fields completed by the potential buyer and with the house reference code. The potential buyer also receives a copy of the email. By clicking on any image it will be shown in a larger format.It is possible, by clicking on the left or right of the image, to pass to the previous or the next image. (See following image).
