In this article we will look at the frontend Category View of Real Estate manager.
Frontend Category View in Real Estate manager
On the top you will see the Joomla pathway (breadcrumbs) reflecting where you are inside Real Estate manager. That part can also be used for easy navigation; the links are clickable (except for the current location).
Comes from the menu entry name you created for Real Estate Manager.
• Category Description
The text "Our house catalog with houses for rent or sale" can be found and changed to your liking inside the language files (/components/com_realestate manager/language/)
• House Image
The image of the house can be found in the directory /components/com_realestatemanager/images/. The file is called realestate.png and can be replaced with a different image if you like, just call it realestate.png and upload in that directory.
• Categories & Subcategories
The categories created for your houses show here, together with the number of houses in them. If you have set Show Subcategory to YES in Settings Frontend, then subcategories are also shown.
Remember: Categories will only show up in the frontend if there are houses inside it and those houses are published!
• Category folder icon
When Custom Category images is set to NO in Settings Frontend you will see these default folder icons in the categories. When you set that to YES, then each category will show the image here which you specify in the Category itself (through category edit in the backend)
The optimum size for category images is 48x48px.
• Search Houses
This is a link to the Search form for Real Estate Manager
• Suggest House
This button will show up if Show button Suggest house is set to YES in Settings Frontend. It allows the user groups you specified in Settings Backend to enter houses suggestions for inclusion in your catalog.
