Support » Plugin: WPAdverts - Classifieds Plugin » Feature Request: Make it possible to “Mark as sold” for a listing

  • Resolved KZeni


    Humble request to have it so listings that aren’t expired can be marked as sold so those looking for the listing can still see information regarding it while being able to find out that it’s no longer available (better than just having the listing be taken down/expire and not be shown at all anymore).

    I figure there’s a good use case for this where sites want to inform visitors of a listing no longer being available in a more informative fashion.

    Thanks for the great plugin!

    Hi, thanks for the feedback, we are actually planning a Mark as Sold add-on, however, right now it is impossible to tell when will it be ready.

    I am hoping for the end of this year, but please do not take my word for it.

    Great! Thanks for the update!

    Dear KZeni,

    I searched for the same function to mark adverts as “sold” and did the following workaround:

    1. First I manually removed the contact information from the “sold”-adverts and added “SOLD” in red letters to the description text, so that sellers cannot be contacted any more.

    2. Then I added the following CSS-code to WordPress > Customize > Custom CSS to display a rotated “SOLD” stamp on the thumbnail images (in the grid list)

    You have to add the element-ids with the advert-id of all sold adverts to the css code! You find the required post-ids from the links in the adverts list in Classifieds > All Classifieds:

    /* mark adverts as sold */
    .advert-id-110 .advert-img:after, 
    .advert-id-108 .advert-img:after,
    .advert-id-109 .advert-img:after,
    .advert-id-24 .advert-img:after,
    .advert-id-11 .advert-img:after {
    	content: "SOLD";
    	display: block;
            font-family: "Times New Roman", Georgia, Serif;
    	top: 90px;
    	right: 2px;
    	width: 85px;
    	text-align: center;
    	padding: 4px;
    	border: 2px solid #bf111b;
    	transform: rotate(-30deg);
    	color: #bf111b;
    	font-weight: bold;
    	border-radius: 5px;
    	text-shadow: -1px -1px 1px #b00, 1px 1px 1px #faa;
    	box-shadow:  -1px -1px 2px #b00, 1px 1px 2px #f88;
            user-select: none;
    	opacity: 0.8;

    Thanks for that option, @dumboxp, but I have clients that will want it to be a bit more streamlined than that and also aren’t comfortable editing CSS. Seems I’ll most likely have to look forward to the update @gwin mentioned.

    The Mark-As-Sold add-on is ready, we will be releasing it this week after WPAdverts 1.2.1 release.

    If for some reason we will not be able to release it (due to some issue in WPAdverts for example which will delay the 1.2.1) you can email me using contact form here i will send you a beta copy.
