I'm likin' this, Pete! Nicely done.

Three things:

1. Will I be able to turn off - say via ACP - the "pay for placement" feature. My Classifieds will be completely FREE, thus competing with alternative community classifieds, such as newspapers. My revenues will come from brining advertisers to the site generally.

2. Will there be a way to turn off any renewal feature? I want to compete with Craigslist, where there is a limited duration for ads. I want to advertise something like "FREE Classifieds for as long as you want your ad to remain!"

3. Will this share a database with my existing phpBB board so folks don't have to sign in or register twice?

Thx,
Scott 8)

Pete,

I don't know if this has already been covered, but is it possible to pull a picture from the classifieds into Smartor's ezPortal?

Thx,

Yep, already written a hack for my mod that gets the last 5 ads and places them on ezPortal. I'll also be doing an RSS feed.

Garage Sales?

Post by IgnorantNewGuy » Tue Feb 14, 2006 1:23 am

Pete,

Do you see your classifieds platform - as is - as useful for listing garage sales by zip code or area of a city, say via category or something?

Code was passed to a member yesterday to do a dry run of the install. Once he's reported back I'll release the code. Can't promise it will be today, if not it should be tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience.

Morning All.

Any word on when this will be ready? I've been lurking around in the shadows and waiting patiently. This looks like it could be an excellent addon for phpBB, and I know for certain that I will use it on at least two boards I have running at the moment.

I don't mean to sound pushy, I'm waiting , anticipating ect. to get my grubby little mitts on this :)

Cheers
Matt
