This plugin allows you to add a simple information & advertising blackboard or classified page in to your wordpress blog.

The plugin has been successfully tested on WordPress version 3.1 with default and unchanged Permalink structure. It may work with earlier versions too, but I have not tested yet.

Please test the plugin with your theme on a test or a local machine, if the test is successful, then install it on the production machine.

Once again, I take no responsibility…

The below section describes how to install the plugin and get it to work.

Please test the plugin with your theme on a test machine or a local machine,
if the test is successful then install it on the production machine.

  1. Extract files
  2. Upload ‘wp-classified/’ folder to your ‘./wp-content/plugins/’ directory

You also have to create a public directory under wp-content as followed:


and chmod the public and cache directories to 777 (writable by the webserver.)
chmod -R 777 wp-content/public


  1. Login to the administration and go to “admin panel/plugins” and activate the plugin
  2. Go to the “Manage” tab of your WP.
    You have now there a new tab called “wpClassified” to configure the plugin.


Uninstalling the plugin:

For uninstalling deactivate the plugin in the WordPress admin menu and
delete the wpClassified directory from the /wp-content/plugins/ directory and the page and tables,
which are installed by the plugin with drop table in phpMyAdmin.

To support Permalink structure:
Example for htaccess code to redirect to wpClassified

You need an .htaccess file that is created/modified by wordpress via the Permalink/mod-rewrite option.

By using the “/%postname%/” or “/%category%/%postname%/” as permalink
structure the plugin must work correctly and you do not need change anything.

For something else please edit the .htaccess file in the root folder of your WordPress.
You can edit the .htaccess file by FTP.
You use the default .htaccess file and modify the file as follow:
The redirect should look something like this

DO NOT touch your .htaccess file.

By default, you do not need to touch the .htaccess file.

BEGIN WordPress

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d


RewriteRule . /index.php [L]


RewriteRule !classified/ /index.php [L]
RewriteRule ^classified/([^/()]*)/? /index.php?pagename=classified [QSA,L,R,NS]
