View Full Version : Hack to enable mamtobs (plugins) in Hot Property

Many my customers wanted to run mambots in HP - Google maps, AllVideos, Tab & Sliders etc. So, I developed hacking instructions allowing to enable any content mambot (plugin) in HP.

Hack is available for both HP 0.97/0.98 run on Joomla 1.0.x and HP 1.0 for Joomla 1.5.x (Google map with gecoding + enabling any content plugin)

Google maps:
Specially for Google maps I developed hack based on plugin Googlemaps (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-&-images/maps/1147/details). The map will be automatically generated (geocoded) using data from the HP's core fields: address, postcode & country (core fields 'state' and 'suburb' could be used also)
528
If geocoder fails to generate the map, its longitude & latitude could be passed by the means of specially created extra fields:
412

AllVideos:
1. Hack allowing uploading videos on the server and displaying it on property details page
2. General hack for displaying already uploaded local and/or remote videos
In both cases AllVideos (http://www.joomlaworks.gr) mambot is used.
414

Generally, Any Content Mambot should work in HP after my hack is applied. So far, the hack was successfully tested with the following plugins:
- AllVideos (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/multimedia/video-players-&-gallery/812/details)
- Tabs & Slides (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/style-&-design/tabs-&-slides/1046/details)
- Simple Image Gallery (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-&-images/photo-gallery/1468/details)
- Googlemaps (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-&-images/maps/1147/details)
- XTypo Plugin (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/style-&-design/tips-&-notes/2087/details)
- Multithumb (http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/photos-&-images/articles-images/976/details)
Note: The above list may not include all mambots/plugins enabled in HP by my customers with the help of this hack

DEMO is available on http://demo.justphp.net

The hack is a commercial solution, those interested could contact me at justPHP -at- gmail -dot- com

Good luck!

too bad you're busy, a more in-depth description would attract many more customers...
By the way, is it possible with your googlemaps hack to display all the properties on a map, maybe in homepage?

Special update for the hacks is released!

Now Google map could be automatically generated on the bases on property address (HP's core fields)!

All who have purchased the hack, would receive the update free of charge.

Hi Gray,

Im not advanced Google maps user, so sorry for my stupid question ;)

is it possible in your hack do automatically something like this:
http://www.ezautos.biz/component/option,com_autosmap/Itemid,29/

- you can see all of my properties on ONE big map
- properties loading to map automatically
- you can see bubble on click, with name of property, address and link to full details of property
- you can see "Directions"

Is it possible? Id like to buy your great hack...

Thank you for reply.

This hack is for building up an individual map for every property.
To construct a general map for all properties, another hack is to be applied.

Hi gray,

Maybe you can make hack for all properties? Already you have two customers who want this hack.

Did you test this?
http://www.joomlamap.de
I think it would be able to interoperate with gray's hack, since it should work with two added lat and long fields
more than this, joomlamap has many more functions...

gray

I've just added a new feature to the hack.
Now user can upload video files to the server and display it for a property.

Demo, as usual, is available at http://demo.justphp.net

Down with capitalism!
Why all for money?
In fact all is very simple!

/* ---- Load mambots for HP ---- */
global $_MAMBOTS;
$_MAMBOTS->loadBotGroup( 'content' );
$row->text = $content;
$results = $_MAMBOTS->trigger( 'onPrepareContent', array( &$row, &$params, $page ), true );
$content = $row->text;
echo $content;
/* ---- End load mambots for HP ---- */

As it to make has read through here : http://forum.joomlaworks.gr/index.php?topic=1112.msg17793

All should be free-of-charge!

I provided a lot of support free-of-charge. Just read my posts on this forum.
As regards my hacks, it makes not only simple enabling mambots, but includes playing local videos (with uploading them), geocoding for Google maps and enabling content mambots in HP fields, agent & company description fields.

In fact, all coding could be done free-of-charge by yourself, if you have enough skills (the Internet has more than enough info), time and wiliness. In some cases, I prefer to pay for something (not coding for HP :), of cause), as doing it by myself will be more expensive. It's a basic rule of economics.

Thanks.

One thing that is annoying people here is the the 3:pds dont show their prices for their different add-ons for HP and also MT.

Why is this secret?

This should be obligatory to show for all the developers here at Mosets.

So pls show your prices so we know pls.

I have also asked about a Community Tools Directory like Community Builder community is doing http://www.mosets.com/forum/showthread.php?p=27204#post27204 where you can use Mosets Tree 2.0 for showing those addons.

No response.:eek:

Hi all

i dont know about all others, but i bought this hack from Gray and it works perfectly! It is not the coding (hack itself) actually but lets say it has more to do with the detailed instruction lets say step by step manual which is of interest and it is worth every penny spent!

Cheers

The hack has been updated to support HP 1.0 run on Joomla 1.5.x
The updated hack includes Google map with geocoding on property page and enabling any content mambot in HP fields.

Worked a treat for me, just now the new IE8 might have a problem displaying the maps - looking into that now.

I would like to have a page with all propeties displayed on the maps and pages with all properties from each area displayed... would this be possible?

Cheers

That's not very nice.

You should use a cron job to re-set the database every hour or so.

Hello Gray,

I sent you an email the other day to find out more information about your hack. Just letting you know in case it went to your spam folder. The topic of the email was "Question regarding HP 1.0 hack‏"

Thanks,

Hack to enable content plugins (mambots) in HP:

This hack is different from available hacks in the market. It installs automatically using standard Joomla installation procedure. You do not need to look at php files and no manual insertion of code. Just install it like any other joomla extension and it will allow you to use content mambots in HotProperty detail page.

The choices are virtually unlimited. New plugins come out day by day. You can now add:

- Videos

- Google Maps

- Tabs and Slides

and many more......

You can just add a mambot/Plugin on your Joomla 1.5x site and use it in property description, same as you use it in joomla articles.

TheProDev,

Can you make some more examples in your demo site such as an image gallery and google maps? Right now you only have a video.

Also, documentation would be a huge plus on how to integrate everything in.

@Grey

Are you not planning on developing for Hot Property anymore? It seems there are a few people waiting on you for some time now. It would be nice to know so that we "know" we should go find other alternatives.

To Mark

I continue coding for HP, but in most cases this is a custom work, but not "standard solutions". Still, I'm planning to make the hack for mamobts available for RC1.

When do you think the hack will be available? I've got a site that needs it.

Hi Gray -

When do you think the hack will be available? I've got a site that needs it.

Good day to all! I'm sorry for a delay, but now I'm ready to present new plugin for Google maps! The main idea is to avoid any hacking of HP core files. You just install my plugin, enable & configure it (including Google map key) and that's all!

More info and screen-short on my page (http://www.justphp.net/googlemap-in-hotproperty).

Hi Gray,

Are you planning on updating your original hack "Hack to enable mambots"?

I like the idea purchasing your script and being able to add videos, maps, and slideshows such as simple image gallery.

Is this available for RC1 yet?

Thank you,

Mark

Hi Mark,
This plugin is not a copy of my mambot hack. Main purpose was to avoid hacking of the HP files. It works for any version of HP1.0.

Actually, the same approach could be applied to videos. Image sideshows also could be a separate approach. Now I'm trying to avoid HP core file hacking.

Format of the my mambot hack means hacking of core files. I think I'll sent short instructions free of charge to my previous customers.

Hi Gray,

Unfortunately I never purchased the "hack to enable mambots" as I was waiting for it to become available for HP 1.0, however we did purchase your sub-type hack awhile ago. Would this count as being a previous customer?

Unfortunately I do not remember which email was used for the purchase.

Thanks,

Mark
