Does this integrate with posts/threads in any way?

I would like to see each listing be a thread/posted in a forum. And the comments being posts.

I'm assuming this isn't how it works but I wanted to check prior to buying. We need something that allows us to run a "forum" as a classifieds category.

while importing this, my admin CP froze on the please wait page with this error message
"Invalid query: MySQL server has gone away41"

What does that mean, do i need to fix something?

Im guessing its something to do with using the library internet and it being a crappy signal?

Panjo does that but i wouldn't recommend them. They made an update to their system and our entire panjo mod drops out until updated, now unable to update. This was a huge issue for us as some people relied on our site for sales. Cost us our reputation and now we have no classified section!

DreadsUK - I am sorry to hear that your site didn't have a smooth transition to the new Panjo marketplace plugin that integrates with thread posts. Did you try contacting us about your issue? You can reach us at [email protected] or 1 (424) 272-0291 or chadbillmyer on skype. We are reaching out to you directly now to see if you want any help with your Panjo mod.

Over a series of weeks, we gave our partners notice about the impending upgrade. We then kept both the former and new systems running in parallel for a few weeks. Then we sunset the old system.

Not only was it a non existant integration but your plug in completely crashed, removing itself from our system before i even had chance to touch or look at it. Something that was done offsite on your end not giving our forum the opportunity to choose wither to upgrade or not. We had no control over this.

This causes huge reliability issues for us.

Very unsatisfied with your product and conduct indeed!

First of all many apologies for the delay in replying, I don't seem to be getting notifications of the new posts...

'Partly' is the answer to your question. We have integration where a thread is created for new listings. But it isn't that the listing is run from there. It allows a form of discussion if you want it. In version 2 we're looking at allowing comments both public and private within the listing itself. Not sure if that will help with you situation or not.

A couple more questions.

Has anybody figured out how to make a widget to show the latest classifieds in the CMS?

For the postage settings, is there not a way that the user can enter the amount for UPS, FedEx and etc. per ad?

Thanks. This mod looks very promising.

OK..I'm sorry but I've got one more question also. Where the heck do the blocks inherit their style variables from? For example, the "Seller Information" block? I have no other blocks or anything on my forum or CMS that have a solid red background. Where is it coming from?
Much of the box structure comes from the StyleVars associated with the Sidebar. That might help in future.

Widgets are a planned feature of version 2.

Also, just in case somebody else runs into it. I started getting a lot of database errors. They were caused by a very temporary install off OzzModz Classifieds. If you have ever installed that one and find, like I did, that it doesn't meet your needs. Just clicking "uninstall" doesn't cut it. You will have to manually remove the files that you uploaded. Not a big deal but maybe it will help somebody else.

So, still need to know if there is a place to configure more ad types. Buy, Sell, Trade, Auction, etc. Is that a manual template edit? Surprises me.

Does anybody know the code to create a widget? I thought maybe it didn't need one when I saw the sidebar display option but I'm not getting anything there.

Thanks in advance for any tips.
Changing the names is possible if you put vBulletin into debug mode which reveals the Manage Listing Types page in the AdminCP. You can access it directly by navigating to the page /dbtclassifieds.php?do=listingtypes in your ACP folder.

At the moment we have the three listing types and we are developing more options in version 2 (working on them right at this moment) so we should have more available. If there aren't any to what you need listed over at www.dragonbyte-tech.com, feel free to post some suggestions for us to take a look at.

I'll take a look to see if there is an issue. Have you set the usergroup permissions for just Classifieds? It might be if you've restricted access globally that you could have issues (i.e. banned them from the whole site).

What have you got selected for your categories? If no Usergroups are selected for a category then all users can see, whereas if select at least one usergroup, any other unselected usergroups won't see.

I think that might be the issue here as just giving permissions for the main usergroups should give access (just checked on my dev install).

Glad that sorted it for you.

You can manage postage options via the Postage Manager, but default settings are only possible in the Pro version. Other than that a user has access to global postage (ones that aren't tied to a particular user) and their own postage options. They can then choose which ones they want available. Are you referring to the default selected option when buying a listing?
