|A good way to organize content|
Organizing content by rigidly putting it into one section and one category, as many Joomla users know, can be a limit.
The majority of entities belong to many categories at the same time. Take an apple for example. Using the standard Joomla! category system, it could be filed under food > fruit.
It's safe to say that a person would describe an apple with many more attributes, practically assigning tags to the apple object.
Tags are nothing new on the web and Joomla! has its choice of good tagging componenents. The only limit with standard tags implementation is to search combining more criteria. In fact one can only click one tag at a time.
Custom Properties - beside showing tags as a cloud or under the article - automatically builds an advanced search module where the user can combine more criteria and filter the content accurately. Therefore it becomes possibile to search with more tags at once. There are many more features like creating a result summary, generating images thumbnails, limiting the scope of the search or tagging other content elements such as events, video and docman docs.
No suprise that Custom Properties has been downloaded and installed on thousands of websites. It's particulary suited for websites offering listings of products, travel agency, real estate & rentals, reviews, job listing, events listings. Great care has been put on making CP internationalization friendly, therefore it supports UFT-8 tags and urls and it's compatible with JoomFish. In fact we've seen it installed on website with the most exotic charsets.
