    I am going to try this on WP 2.5 on the off chance that it works.

    Are you going to continue developing this plug-in?

    I have installed it on WP 2.5 and it doesn't seem to be working. I don't see anywher for people to post listings. Am I missing something or is it just not yet compatible with WP 2.5?

    I haven't installed it yet but wouldn't it be a good idea to have a "back" button or link when viewing ads and categories instead of clicking the browser's back button?

    Hi, all and thank your posts.
    -raygene you have right. I was busy with other things.
    A back and forward link is implemented and will be ready to upload this weekend.
    The version 1.0 of Plugin run on my local machine successfully with WP2.5 with the default Permalink structure.

    However, I work on the plugin every free minute to fix and keep it up to date.

    Thanks Mohmed,

    This plugin is a great idea and I sure hope you a lot of success. I'm looking forward to using it on my "Newspaper" type of site.

    Cheers,

    Still doesn't work for me with WP 2.5 and the updated plugin. In fact when I activate this plugin it tells me that WP2.5 is available and that I should upgrade now, even though I am running WP2.5

    Grate idea, But it is not working. There is not a single classified add plugin that is working.

    I know. I thought it would be a popular plug-in too. I guess I was wrong.

    Hmm, downloaded and installed, the page is there but there are no instructions on how to add categories (backend) and enter an ad (frontend).

    Also, why is "WordPress 2.5.1 is available! Please update now." still there?

    Oh well, another one bites the dust...

    Go to the navigation point "wpClassified" menu in the administration area.
    There you can add categories/list.

    Exactly what I did, go to the wpClassified menu but the only panel I get is Settings and after saving the settings, nothing else.

    Cheers,

    I finally got this to work. I had to go into phpadmin to remove the tables and then installed the latest version. You have to set up both a category and a list for it to be visible.

    Can you post what was changed in the admin.php to get this to work. I can't seem to get it to work at all in 2.6 thanks

    Mohmed...Please continue to develop this plugin. It is much needed.

    **For those of you having problems with this plugin**

    1. Install and activate plugin

    2. Go into Manage -- WpClassifieds -- Add/Edit Categories

    3. Click on "Add Category"

    4. Categories are the MAIN sections of your classifieds. For example, Autos For Sale

    5. Now that you have a category, click on "Add List" under the Add/Edit Categories menu.

    6. Create a list and then choose its parent category.

    **Lists are your subsections on your classifieds. For example, "Trucks" would be a list whose parent category would be "Autos For Sale."

    Unless you create lists under your categories, you won't see a thing on your classified page.

    Make sense?

    I'm using this on 2.6 and it works perfectly. No problems. I think the problems people have come from the fact that they don't understand Categories and Lists.

    Hope this helps!

    I was away for a couple of the days to visit pyramid Tutankhamun's tomb in cairo.
    Now, I have added some new things to the plugin and try to get more good ideas from other classified for my plugin.
    By the way I am open for any suggestion from everyone of you.
    Thanks ;-)

    Hey Mohamed,

    Love the plugin, thanks for all your hard work. I'm trying to customize a few things and was wondering if you could help?

    1) On the main landing page for each "List" the header puts the "Category" title but not the "List" title. Could you tell me which file/line to modify to add this in?

    2) I would like to change the text for adding a new ad ("Add a new Ad in this category"), but can't find what file that's in either.

    Much appreciated!

    Hi,
    You can customize the appearance of the main AD site by editing the
    body_tpl.php file.
    Modify the text of $lang['_ADDANNONCE'] = "Add a new Ad in this category";
    in the file lang_en.php located in the folder language.

    And for the user that the GD libraries not installed (or the php do not support freeType) I'll be able to configure the confirmation code in admin Interface in the next coming release.
    Regards
    4gani

    Thanks again! I did manage to modify almost everything I wanted. However I'm still stuck on modifying the breadcrumbs on the LIST pages.

    In the settings.php file at: case "vl"
    I modified the code to read: return create_public_link("index", array("name"=>"Classified"))." ".$adsInfo['subject']." ".create_public_link("classified" , array("name"=>$adsInfo["name"], "name"=>$adsInfo["name"], "lid"=>$adsInfo['lists_id']))." " ;

    However I only get the link for MAIN, and no list title (as you do on the AD page).

    Any thoughts?

    Please mail me your site url and I will check your site

    I activated it in 2.5 and it broke the whole blog. I'd put the error message that showed up instead of my website but I already yanked the plugin. :o( Just passing it along.

    Hi Mohammad,

    We really need this plugin.

    I activated in WordPress version 2.6.1.

    I have added categories and lists but cannot see where to ad a classified? I noticed Admin User under admin and I see my acct listed as user (not Administrator). When I change to Administrator and save--it doesn't take--looks like a permissions issue writing out the change.

    Help!

    Mohammad, you've done a great job. Thank you. I love this plugin. A couple of suggestions though.
    1. file functions.php, line #288 I added a separator ... sified\">Main</a> | <img src=\"" .get_blog ... otherwise when you're viewing an ad, the menu looks crammed up. Now it is Main | Current Category
    2. The bottom of the classified page where you have this RSS and Adsense thing. Adsense is blocking the Captcha and the RSS icon doesn't break. You can sort this out by using a simple <br /> tag or place the ad-block into a <div>.
    3. As you view the ad, user.gif and cal.gif shift to and fro when you MouseOver them. Annoying! Probably a CSS issue.

    Apart from that, it is brilliant. When I make loads of dosh from it, I will no doubt consider a donation.

    @ j8h9, have you tried to create a fake user and see if he (the fake one) can post ads?

    @ those who cannot get the plugin to work, either view the readme.txt for htaccess instructions or switch away from Windows server to Unix. Why would you use Windows server anyway?

    Tankard, thanks for your feedback.
    In fact, the image was the separator. The style sheet was not correct and the images displayed at a wrong place.
    As you said, j8h9 have problem with htaccess file.The same problem as all other users. Please mail me your site url may be i can help you before you install the plugin.

    @tankard: Some people may use Windows server because that's what their hosting service provides.... :(

    @cina: Thanks for writing this plug-in. I've mentioned elsewhere (probably on the download page for the plugin?) that I'm having one minor problem with the plug-in -- the mail to friend just does nothing. I've tried with IE7, Firefox and Chrome with the same result: once the names, addresses and captcha are entered, the form simply reloads with a new captcha.

    I would also like it better if the function of the email response to an ad would use something form-based, rather than a mailto link, as many folks out there use some sort of web mail instead of a dedicated mail application like Outlook or Eudora.

    Thanks!

    I'm getting a weird error.
    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/content/s/v/v/svvtwebsite/html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1052

    I've tried the fix on http://www.forgani.com/wpclassified-plugins/ but nothing changes. I've also tried on the default theme.
    I'm using wordpress 2.6.3 and wp-classifieds 1.3.0-f
    Has anyone encountered something similar.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cina, please do continue development on this plugin. I'm running WordPress on my neighborhood home owners association website, and all my site visitors (neighbors) are screaming for a Classifieds section. Right now I'm just using a forum for posting general, unorganized classifieds ads.

    The installation went very straight-forward for me (WP 2.6.X), and it was actually very easy to setup, too. I'm having a bit of trouble with customizing the appearance, but that's just due to my limitations. I'm learning.

    The plugin is MUCH appreciated -- I just wanted to post that in hopes that you'll continue supporting it.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for this plugin. I installed it on wp2.6.3 and everything went ok until I tried to make a post. For some reason the CAPTCHA is NOT WORKING
    and will not let me save my post. It does not matter how many times I type in the code it ALLWAY's Gives me the error "The confirmation code didn't matched" I did it about 20 times and I KNOW I got some, if not all of them right. Could someone please give me a heads up on how to correct this.
    Thanks
