Listings are the primary way to store information on your directory. They are what your users ultimately looks for in your directory. Mosets Tree provides host of options and capabilities to manage them.
A listing is displayed in two forms in the front-end - Details view and Summary view.
In summary view, part of the listing's data is shown to your users in a limited amount of space. What will always be shown here is the listing name. Rating and the number of reviews are also shown if they are enabled. If you want to show additional custom fields or hide the default ones in this view, toggle the "Shown in summary view" setting by editing the field in "Mosets Tree Custom Fields".
In the Autos category, we have Description, Category, Price, Country and Make set to be shown in Summary view.
Details view is the dedicated page that shows all published information about your listing. This includes all your fields data, images, ratings, reviews, user profile and maps. Listing details view is also the primary place where you can find links to or perform interaction with your listing.
Listings are always assigned to the Root of your directory or one of your Categories. There are 2 ways you can choose which category you want your listings to be in when you create a listing:
- You browse to your desired category and then click "Add Listing" in Mosets Tree's back-end.
- You browse to your desired category and then click "Add your listing here" in Mosets Tree's front-end.
- You can click "Change Category" while you're editing a listing to browse and assign the listing to your desired category.
Mosets Tree has multi category or cross categorization support that allows you to assign listings to 2 or more categories.
This is useful when you have listings that belongs to 2 or more categories while maintaining only one instance of a listing. Updates to the listing will be reflected in all categories it's assigned to.
The first category that it's assigned to is called the Primary category, while subsequent categories are referred to as Secondary categories.
To assign secondary categories, click on "
Change Category" when you're editing a listing. Browse to a category, and click "
Also appear in this category". Click "Save" to save the changes.
Mosets Tree allows your users to add images along with their listings to be displayed in listings details view.
When the images are uploaded, you can drag to sort the images. The first image in the list will be displayed in listings summary view. You can uncheck the checkbox to mark any unwanted image for removal. Make sure to save the listing to actually remove the image.
Mosets Tree comes with support for Google Map. To enable this map, set "Show Map" to
Yes in Features tab of Mosets Tree global configuration.
When you have a listing's address entered, you can press
Locate in map. Mosets Tree will geocode this address and place a marker on the map to show you the listing's location.
You can also provide better geocode experience by setting default country, state and city in Mosets Tree's configuration. By doing this, Mosets Tree will use these default value when they are not entered to a listing. For example, when you have set a default city, state and country, your users only need to enter an address in order to perform a geocode.
Listings in Business category usually attach an address. In this page, Mosets Tree geocode the address and you can see the marker is placed at the business address showing users the business location.
Publishing lets you configure many of the listing's meta data.
Owner is the designated user that owns the listing. They are the one that can manage the listing in front-end. You can change the owner by clicking on the person icon.
Alias is used as your listing slugs when you have SEF URLs enabled. When a new listing is created, the alias is automatically generated for you by using a lower case name and replacing spaces and dash.
If you want to change a listing's date created, you can do this by editing "Created Date". Changing this may affect the "New Listing" status of a listing in front-end.
By default, Start Publishing date is the creation date of the listing. You can override this date in order for the listing to be published on a later date.
Similar to Start Publishing date, you can set a Finish Publishing date to expire a listing. Once a listing is published down, it will no longer be visible in the front-end interface.
By default, all listings do not have a "Finish Publishing" date set, so they are published as long as they are set as such. If you have set a value for "Number of days to expire listing" config, the "Finish Publishing" date will be set with a future expiry date.

Show the features.
Internal notes provides a place for you to record any comments about a listing. If you have multiple editor managing your directory, you can use this as a place to comment and collaborate on a listing.
Your users in front-end can submit listings to your directory. They can do this by clicking the Add Listing link in Browse module or Add your listing here link when they browse to a category in Mosets Tree.
Through the use of Permission you can control which user group has the permission to submit new listings. You can even configure to allow Public user group (ie: non-logged in users) to submit listings.
By default, listings that are submitted by your users in front-end are sent to an approval queue in Mosets Tree's back-end. You as the admin will be notified on this through e-mail. You can choose to either Ignore, Accept or Reject the submission. This approval process can be disabled in Configuration, in which any newly submitted listings will be published immediately to your directory.
If any of your listings are owned by user from Super Users, Administrator or Manager group, they can be claimed by users. When a user claim a listing, you will be notified by e-mail. You can then view this claim in Mosets Tree's back-end to approve or reject the claim.
Approving the claim will assign the ownership of the listing to the claimant, essentially making the claimant the owner of the listing which allow them to manage the listing in front-end.
You can disable this feature in Configuration.
