plugin: Dj-Classifieds


This plugin enables you to insert items (one by one or by a selection on one or several categories) from Dj-Classifieds in your Newsletters.

You can also use this plugin to automatically include your newly created items in an Auto-newsletter.

You can search in all your Dj-Classifieds items and then click on one of the items to include it in your Newsletter.

If you purchased at least one commercial version of AcyMailing, you can download this plugin then install and publish it like a standard Joomla plugin.

Here is an example of inserted item:

Each item can be selected one by one.

Customize your Dj-Classifieds item template

Customize your item using some CSS

You can change the styles used for the title and the content area by editing your AcyMailing template.

Edit the AcyMailing template used for your Newsletter and then set some styles:

  • Style for the content area will be used to encompass your item

  • Style for the content title will be applied to your item's title

  • Style for the read more link will be applied to your read more link (if you have one)

  • You can also set the style of all your links using the Link a field

Set styles template

Create your own template

You can also modify the way your item is displayed by creating your own template which will be used to render the item. Please follow those instructions, we don't recommend you to modify the plugin directly otherwise your changes will be overwritten when you update the plugin.

Create a file in the the folder media / com_acymailing / plugins (if the folder does not exist, please create it first). The name of the file should be djclassifieds.php If this file is available on your server, AcyMailing will use it and won't use the default one.

On this file you can access the element $varFields (which contains all the item's information), the element $tag (which contains the information of the current tag used in your Newsletter) and $link (the item's link)

You can insert the item's information using this simple syntax : {name}, {link} or {description}

Using all those variables, you can create your own item template.

Here is an example:

<div class="acymailing_content"><a href="{link}" name="djclassifieds-{id}" target="_blank" ><h2 class="acymailing_title">{name}</h2></a><a href="{link}" target="_blank" style="text-decoration:none" >{imagehtml}</a>{description} Price: {price} {currency}Address: {location}One custom field: {cf|field's label}</div>
