I have been trying to find a way to set up some kind of alert system that the users can setup/subscribe too but have not had any joy. Has anyone else got a solution for this?
They Acymailing plugin doesn't work it just produces a message to download latest acymailing for it to work, but I have done that and the message keeps appearing. However I don't know if that plugin will meet our needs:
A user can create a search then save this as an email alert when new properties that meet their search criteria are added to the site. This is an absolute must have for any property site.
I did use Techjoomla's JMailalerts a while back for a classifieds website which did exactly this. They have some documentation here that shows developers how to create a plugin for any Joomla component - this would be perfect for OSProperty:
I would give it a go but wouldn't know where to start.
I have already setup the OSProperty cron job, but cannot display saved searches. I have tried both menu links for OSProperty which are called Registered - Search List (they will not display on the menu even though I have tried setting the access to public, registered etc. The links won't show.
If anyone has got around the problem of creating alerts for OSProperty I would love to hear what they did/use.
