Not for developpers.
By , for WP 4.4.2

- Nice features
- Lot of modules
- Support is responsive and helpful
- Nice doc for admins

- No doc for devs
- No child theme support
- Overcomplicated architecture
- Obsolete code, (in a WordPress context)
- Not developper-friendly at all
- Really slow, does not mix well with other plugins

The features offered by Awcpc are interesting, but the complete pack is seriously too damn expensive.

This was maybe a good plugin few years ago, but not for 2016 standards. Time for a complete rewrite.

Not very well thought out
By ,

The restore button does not rename the "AWPCP Main page" as it says it should. It doesn't seem to rename any pages as it said it should in fact.

The site is supposed to work at mysite.com/"AWPCP Main page" from what I understand.

Now, an intelligent developer would put a big clear button saying "CLICK HERE TO VIEW YOUR CLASSIFIED PAGE" but not these guys. They in fact store it in the documentation, which seems to be incorrect because I just get a 404 when trying the syntax they suggest.

Not very user friendly.

No html email, No UTF-8 support - incredible
By , for WP 4.1.1

In a magic twist, this plugin does not use UTF-8 characterset for emails (although UTF-8 is standard in WP databases since long),
moreover this plugin creates the ugliest emails ever seen - without the possibility to use html support or UTF-8 support in these.
Not even page breaks are honored.

I recently left a review on another of this same developers plugin sites. That review applies to this one exactly the same:

As for the free plugin, it does an ok job. For free there are no complaints as you can't expect miracles for free. But the many add-ons are very expensive. 40$ each. And I advise everyone to read the fine print. Buried in the terms is the little detail that after 1 year and each year there-after you will have to pay to keep it updated. So just be aware that if you spend a lot of time adapting your site to use this plugin - you will not only probably need to add expensive add-ons - but you will continue to pay year after year, or all your time and work will be for nothing.

Better are much less expensive options out there.

Need some more enhancement
By , for WP 3.6.1

Hi All, I am using this plugin since last 3 months and i am juggling with this plugin. This plugin is good but sometimes i need some more dynamic features in this so i can use it in a way that most of my work done easily. Initially this plugin fulfilled all my requirements but then i switched to this script . Now my work is going awesome and i am working in more customization environment with this script.
