plugin: Joomla! Estate Agency (JEA)


This plugin enables you to insert properties (one by one or by a selection on one or several categories) from Joomla! Estate Agency in your Newsletters.

You can also use this plugin to automatically include your newly created (or modified) properties in an Auto-newsletter.

You can search in all your JEA properties and then click on one of the properties to include it in your Newsletter.

If you purchased at least one paid version of AcyMailing, you can download the JEA plugin on our plugins section then install and publish it like a standard Joomla plugin.

Your properties will look like this in your newsletter :


Single Property

You can use this interface to insert any JEA property in your Newsletter.

Each property can be selected one by one.

  • Display: select the information to display with the property

  • Clickable Title: make your title clickable (so linked to your online version) or not.

  • Read More: add a "read more" link at the end of the property (so linked to your online version)

  • Display pictures: you can decide to display or not the property's main picture.

  • Truncate the text after...: it will truncate the property description, keep "0" or empty if you do not want to truncate it

  • Additional parameters:

    • Itemid: you can specify the Itemid used in your property's links


You can refine the address so AcyMAiling will automatically get the properties of a specific location.

  • Department/Town/Area: Select the location you want, or keep the default value to get all your properties

  • Columns: display the properties in one, two or more columns

  • Max. Number of items: The inserted tag will be replaced by a maximum of X properties.

  • Min. Number of items: This option will only be displayed if you access this plugin for a Smart-Newsletter. AcyMailing will only generates your Smart-Newsletter if the minimum number of properties found is reached.

  • Order by: order the properties by ID, created date, etc...

  • Filter: This option will only be displayed if you access this plugin for a Smart-Newsletter. You can set a rule so that only newly created or modified properties are added to your Newsletter.

  • Additional parameters:

    • agentid: Add this manually after inserting your tag to filter the inserted content by agend id (the "created by" information). For example: {autojea:.....|agentid:295}


  • Display properties: This parameter enables you to filter the list of JEA properties in the tag system

    • All properties: AcyMailing will display all your JEA properties

    • Only published properties: AcyMailing will only display your published properties

  • Front-end Access: You can choose to hide this plugin's tab on the front-end's tag popup

Customize your JEA property template

Customize your property 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 property

  • Style for the content title will be applied to your property 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 JEA property is displayed by creating your own template which will be used to render the property. Please follow those instructions, we don't recommend you to modify the JEA 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 jea.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 product information), the element $tag (which contains the information of the current tag used in your Newsletter) and $link (the product link)

You can insert the product information using this simple syntax : {title}, {description}, or {link}

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

Here is an example:

<div class="acymailing_content"><a href="{link}" target="_blank" ><h2 class="acymailing_title">{title}</h2></a><a href="{link}" target="_blank" style="text-decoration:none" >{imagehtml}</a>{description}location: {addressformated}</div>
