It would help if you were logged-in as Joomla administrator. Open the " Extension Manager ".
To Upload & Install DJ-Classifieds component, click " Choose file " and choose the extension package from your disk.
When the package is chosen, click " Upload & Install ".
DJ-Classifieds has been installed successfully.
Go to " Components " and choose " DJ-Classifieds " from the list.
In DJ-Classifieds Control Panel open " Categories ".
Now click " New ".
Fill in the fields that you need for your category. We present an example configuration.
As you can see below, we create "Audi " as subcategory and assign it Parent Category "Cars".
You can find a complete list of categories' parameters here.
If you wonder what is "price points" you will find the answer in this article.
Now it's time to create custom fields. In DJ-Classifieds control panel go to " Custom fields " tab and open " Fields ".
Provide all the important information.
There is also a " Search options " tab. When you use it, the custom fields appear in the ads search box.
Do not forget that each custom field should be assigned to a proper DJ-Classifieds category. One more time open the " Categories " in DJ-Classifieds panel.
Choose a proper category and go to " Custom Fields tab ". Choose " Manage custom fields ".
Click " Active " to assign a custom field to this category.
Let's see now how to make a checkbox custom field.
Click "new". Fill all the necessary fields.
And now again the " Search options ".
This custom field must be assigned to "cars" category in the same way as the other fields before.
Now let's define the custom field: Condition.
And now the "Search options".
And like always we assign " condition " field to " cars " category.

We have created a sub-location (Camden district) which belongs to London (parent location).
Go to Menus in the top bar. Choose " Main Menu " and then " Add New Menu Item ".
Now we define a new menu item called DJ-Classifieds ads.
We set (all in the Details tab):
Click " Save "
Let's add another menu item. This item will allow users to post their adverts when clicking this menu button.
The process is the same as for the latest menu item.
This time we set:
Click " Save "
