Edit : 20/03/2019 all is perfect it's a real good plugin sorry, i had some conflicts with other script plugin and it's resolve, , thanks for your work a real good job ! At the first instal, just a white screen and a line. But after 10 days a beautiful and fonctionnal classified ...i am very satisfied. I have tested all functions and i really like the simplicity for end-users .... classifieds directory must be easy for user. I tried and bought free and premium plugin but i choose this one (no 1000 functions but the essential) what i like : - several css class allow You can custom the plugin appearance with some days of work maybe less for some others (I take the time and i could spend 4 hours to choose the color of one block after 10 versions) - So you can do this in 10 minutes if you want, so perfect class css system 20/20 Integrate login system and flying contact form : Really good idea the login system is fast and contact button allow you to send message in one click ..... 20/20 it's perfect for a classifieds site fast intuitive and easy - 17/20 Browse the directory : You can customs the fields by categories and display them on a search block - easy efficient and logic for end users : it become a pleasure to browse directory in one or two clicks 20/20 .......... Single detail page of the classified : The classifieds presentation is soft and clean , i just reduc the size the main image using an "object-fit : cover" . Because we know some user post ugly photo ..... i also add block of recents posts in the detail page ...... 18/20 Php is clean, i am not an expert of php : The code is clean you will understand what you read, you will enjoy this plug easy to understand if you are a pro 15/20 Reviews sytem Reviews are good and easy to understand for end user ! 18/20 I didn't test the marketplace plugin so i don't speak but it's a good idea ! What i don't like The search fonction is the most important for a classified directory before any progress it need work about : The search by keyword is not bad but confusing for end-user : ----- If you search for : "télévision" it won't result the "television" records ! in fact, The user must search télévision with all accents so, in this case 0 result will appear Accents must be ignore for a good search .... a lot of accents in different langage so the search system must ignore the accents .... and a lot of people don't use accents when they search because they are lazy ! Other search problem very important - priority : example : - There is a post called : "Lcd screen 32" - A user make a search of "Lcd 32" - The Classifieds will display 0 score 0 results . Because The user must search for an "Lcd" only or enter the exact same title "Lcd screen 32" ..... It really need a change whithout this, i will maybe delete this plugin because it's really important to have a perfect search for a classifieds directory .... user will give you 7/10 seconds at the first visit and the firt thing he will do : it's a search ! Other problem concerning search process : When user search something, most of time 1- User see the results and then click on another category to navigate 2 - The search bar is reinit and the user make a different search to filter the result in the selected category 3 - He click search and the new results appears the problem is : 1 - the user search for a "tv" so 3 tv offers appear, good ! 2 - but the user want see "headset" in the "audio category" . 3 - So he click on "audio category but the search bar keep the keyword "tv" in memory ..... 4 - The system search for a "tv" in "Audio category" display 0 results ----- The user must delete "tv" and write "headset" and click to search So, when user change categorie : the bar must be empty and search reinit . The user must see entire results for the selected categorie and then use search by keyword of this choice to filter ! Search is the most important thing, beforce pay, before call, before mail, before publish, a user search ! see google search engine .... search is at the top : "the easy solution would be to display categories in search bar near keyword .... Some other classifieds plugins have the same problem and this is the reason why , they place a "category block search" next to "keyword block search". So, the user understand he must select a new category : it's become more intuitive and resolve this sort of problems ....... i tested with 4 peoples between 20 and 65 years old they said : "it's perfect, all is perfect" but each time they have problems with search." Resume : : This plugin is really good with some improvements in search system. But it's free and in progress, so no problem be proud and confident, just a work on search improvement and it would be perfect and premium ... I like this plug, perfect for end user, clean and beautiful. Goooood work : thank for this super job ! Bonus point : "loco translate" is perfect to translate this plugin use it ! translation is easy in 45 minutes Little problem : notification with wordpress in sender ... use smtp mail to fix this problem ..... It do what we want , make an easy, fast and clean classified directory ( work on search ) 18/20

Brilliant Plugin, I can't wait for this plugin to be fully featured. This plugin has a lot of promise and I'll stick with it, It's awesome. It's neat, elegant and clean. It has quite a few add-ons which are also really cool.
