SOBI 2 Beta 1 released

Sigsiu Online Business Index 2 (SOBI 2) released!
SOBI 2 - Sigsiu Online Business Index 2 is a component for the WCMS Joomla! to show entries of companies.
The entries are divided into categories, which can contain subcategories. One entry can be entered in up to five categories. The companies enter themselves in the index. A security code (security image) is available for spam protection. Registered users can modify or delete their entries.

Using the integrated Category&Entry Manager in the backend all categories and entries can be managed comfortably. Entries and categories can be deleted, upublished and moved.

A Field Manager can be used to configure each field entirely. This concerns the ordering, obligatory fields, fees, field length (width of field and number of characters), field type (textfield or textarea), in which view a field should be shown (cards view and/or details view), and much more.
The standard fields can be deactivated and new fields can be added. Thus, the business directory simply changes to a directory for other things (clubs, music, books, aso).

For each entry two images can be uploaded (besides the linked images in the description). The images will be resized to an adjusted size.
To pay for the options not for free easily, a connection to Paypal is integrated. If an entry contains options not for free, an email will be sent to the customer.

In a menu module all categories will be shown in tree view. An extended search function gives the possibility to search within the existing values of one or more fields.

SOBI 2 works with "Register Globals" and " Joomla! Register Globals Emulation" off.

SOBI 2 is the big brother of SOBI and suitable for those users, which need the wide possibilities of configuration and the subcategories.
