XTDir is our new solution to empower SobiPro!
XTDir is built based on our 5-years experience working and extending SobiPro (formerly known as Sigsiu Online Business Index 2, or Sobi2 for short).
From our humble beginnings, with the SobiPro Search plugin, we 've been creating new extensions for SobiPro, supporting new features and extending Apps, Modules, and Plugins.
Each extension needs its own configuration, and a common configuration; so they became too complex, and redundant with every new feature. We needed to review the whole product model! A new XTDir was born to consolidate our vision and reach new highs. http://demo.xtdir.com
Main Component Features
- Dashboard: Control Panel to manage the general configuration
- Joomla Search plugin: To integrate SobiPro with the general search.
- Smart Search plugin (Finder): To integrate SobiPro with the general Joomla smart search / simplified Sobipro App for finder.
- Entries Explorer: The explorer is our main management tool to promote/unpromote, enable/disable, and approve/unapprove actions.
- Promoted Entries: Entries can be promoted to top positions in the catalog navigation, in this way an advertisement organization can be implemented.
- Tiers for Sections / Categories: Tiers define how the list of promoted entries will be managed. Scope: section-wide or category specific.
- Ads algorithms: Default, Hits, Random, or Multi-Armed Bandit (Random+Hits, same used by Google Adwords)
- Entries management: Manual (activated by hand), Dynamic (field managed) , or Paid (activated by payments).
- Order management
- Promotion Expiration/Edition
- Promoted Entry Metadata Field: native SobiPro field to include entry metadata (styling)
- AlphaListing Entry Promotion
- Custom "Order By": Support for custom second order
The new list of reviewed modules are:
- Extended Joomla Search Form: the extended search form applied to Joomla search.
- Extended SobiPro Search Form: the extended search form applied to SobiPro search.
- Categories of SobiPro: module to show the list of categories, in 6 different layouts, with statistics.
- Joomla Search In Categories: module to show a seach box, and an associated list of categories for Joomla search.
- SobiPro Search In Categories: module to show a seach box, and an associated list of categories for SobiPro search.
- Sobipro Search in Selected Section: module to show a search box and a section selection, to submit the query to SobiPro search.
Performance: Battle tested for large catalogs. This site has more than sample 2.000 entries. More test sections are coming (10-100K entries)
- Cronjob tasks: heavy tasks are managed by cronjob tasks. For example, to build an index of 1.000 entries, 100 seconds are required.
XTDir for SobiPro 1.1 Beta 3 is available to all current Packs and Promoted Entries members. The final version is planned for end of June 2013 (after SobiPro v1.1 June 28th release)

Today, we've been reading the news about how a user discovered the fact about free untrusted downloads.
In the article Warning! Don't download joomla extensions from untrusted websites!, Daniel describes how he downloaded, and installed an extension from an unknown author. Soon, he discovered that the source code has a hidden link.
Also, he tried to download again the module, to discover a different hidden link! So, the untrusted author's been not only surreptitiously adding links, also rotated the hidden links as a regular operation.
As Daniel notes, a hidden link is one way to get your site hacked. Also, the source code can have worst attack vectors. For example, accesing your site customers, user passwords, and social media accounts.
Now, the module's been reported and it is not anymore listed on the JED.
- Use the community: Don't forget the truism, "If a deal is too good to be true, it is." ...
As Daniel concludes "This goes to you too! Be careful where you download your next joomla extension!".
