We've removed this plugin and switched to another.
By , for WP 3.8.1

this plugin (like their sister business directory plugin) has a lot of useful features. But it is difficult to customize and has has minor strange bugs. For example the city fields goes AFTER the state field - weird. That's just the tip of the iceberg, the class selectors are either non-existant or named strangely. the admin is a mess of multiple options pages: the exact opposite of how an Apple product works. with some polish, this could be a great plugin.

Does what it says, but in the most odd ways
By , for WP 3.5

As a developer, I was a little bit surprised when digging into the internals of the plugin. It creates custom database tables for things like Pages, Categories and Ads. As such, naturally, it creates custom admin UI for all of these.

Best I can tell, there is no reason to do any of this - it makes for an incredibly janky admin UI, very unintuitive querying mechanisms, and surprises at every turn. Hoping that the developer of the plugin takes it in a forward facing direction, converting Ads to Custom Post Types, using a custom taxonomy for Ad Categories and stripping all the unnecessary admin UI code out in favor of core UI. It's hard, but worthwhile.
