RSDirectory! was developed after three real world applications - we got our inspiration from a Joomla! business directory, a popular car sales website & a classifieds directory. We've aimed to recreate these using our own extension and we're confident we can.

- Differentiate between free & paid ads;
- Create dependencies (eg. Car maker > Model);
- Assign forms to categories - forms can be reused on multiple categories;
- Assign fields to forms - fields can also be reused in multiple forms, allowing for a powerful filtering & search tool;
- Adjust the look & feel of the directory through CSS & the built-in placeholders.
- Migrate from SobiPro
- Import data from CSV files

1.5.8 for Joomla! 2.5 & 3.x
Advanced category management
Unlimited & nested categories: You can create an unlimited number of categories and subcategories. A visual representation of subcategories was implemented for easier identification.
Ability to emulate categories through the use of custom fields and the "Categories from Fields Values" Menu Item: The Categories from Fields Values menu item is capable of displaying a field's default values and creating categories based on these values. Clicking on a category / value will list all entries that have the value assigned for that field.
Batch add categories: Categories and subcategories can be added in large numbers without the need to go through the single category addition process every time, using the Batch add feature.
Customize your layout through placeholders
Generate the title of the listing with the use of placeholders: Templates can be created for an entry submission form's title, big / small subtitle and description using some user and entry-related placeholders.
Unlimited custom fields and forms
Fields can be reused in different forms: We have adopted a fresh approach when creating forms. You only need to define a certain field once, and reuse it in as many forms you want.
Standard fields: The following fields will be added by default to any form: Title, Big & small subtitle, Description, Images, Price, Publishing Period, Promoted.
Custom fields: Aside from the standard fields mentioned above, you can create any number of custom fields of the following types: Textbox, Textarea, Dropdown, Checkbox Group, Radio Group, File Upload, Country, Calendar, Dropdown Date Picker, Column / Tab / Pagebreak, Map, Free Text.
Field dependencies (eg. Make > Series > Model): You can set up dependencies between fields so that selecting a certain value in a field will enable the associated set of values in a second field which is dependent on the first.
Monetize your website
Charge when specific custom fields are used: Set up a number of credits the users will be charged for when filling out a custom field for an entry, for example a subtitle that stands out or an extra image
Integrating with the most popular payment gateways: We have integrated PayPal, 2Checkout & Authorize.net support through their respective plugins.
Credit Packages: Create credit packages for your users to purchase through the Buy Credits menu item. These credits will be later used for adding new entries. A package can also be set up to offer unlimited credits.
Reports, ratings & reviews
You can turn your customers into active contributors by letting them post their reviews and rate entries. A customizable reporting tool is also included, it can prove itself very efficient in keeping your entries well organized.
Extensive configuration options
Watermark uploaded images: Watermarks can be added for all uploaded images. This feature includes some very useful configuration options like the watermark's position, opacity and size.
CAPTCHA & ReCAPTCHA support: Anti-spam protection is a must in today's websites. To help you keep your directory clean from spambots, we have included CAPTCHA and ReCAPTCHA support.
Comments support: Implement frontend commenting through one of the following systems: RSComments!, Facebook Comments & Disqus.
Customizable & unlimited emails
Set up emails that will be sent when the entry has been submitted, published, unpublished, deleted or reviewed.
Ability to select the category for which these emails apply.
Responsive through Bootstrap
The component's frontend was designed to be resposive. Your directory will look good on PC's, tablets and smartphones alike.
Search for entries on the map
Associate each entry with a location on the map and enable frontend users to search for entries by location and radius, the map initializing based on the user's location.
Import and migration tools
You can either migrate from SobiPro using a specialized feature or import data from CSV files.
Save your data
The Backup / Restore tool allows saving all of RSDirectory!'s tables in a single ZIP archive and later reverting to it. This can be done multiple times, each saved file will be cached and available for use at any time.
RSDirectory!'s functionality is extended through its payment plugins and frontend modules.
Frontend users can be charged for adding entries per field. You can set up a credit cost for each field and sell credit packages, so that the users will be able to add entries as long as they have enough credits to do so.
The SobiPro Import and CSV Import plugins allow migrating from SobiPro (using a tool that allows correctly handling the differences between the two components) and importing data from CSV files, giving RSDirectory! a plus in terms of flexibility.
Using the component's modules you can display, in the frontend, information that is relevant either to the logged-in user (using the Credits module - displays the number of remaining credits) or for general use (the Related entries module - lists entries that are related to the one that is currently viewed, the Newest entries module - displays the most recently added entries, the Top Rated Entries module - displays the entries which have received the highest ratings, the Popular Entries module - displays the most viewed entries, the Categories module - displays a listing of available RSDirectory! categories) and the Entries Carousel module - displays a slider containing a configurable number of entries.
