1.- What's this mod?

Is better to say what is NOT . For those who have used MarysClassifieds, I can say that they are 2 products which you can't compate. MarysClassifieds had dozens of features, has build in all types of Classifieds (including Auctions), but when I installed in my site I realized that I need only 10% of those features. Maybe less. This is SL Auctions. A minimalist version of MarysClassifieds, but I bet that 70% of the webmasters will find this one more pretty, more usefull.
  • Supports unlimited categories
  • Supports Extra fields (but not searchable)
  • Use realtime countdown for Auction expiration
  • Has PM templates for:
    • PM user when admin approves his Auction
    • PM user when admin rejects Auction
    • PM seller when a user places a Bid
    • PM seller when a user clicks Buy it
    • PM seller when a use uses the contact form
    • PM Buyer who won, on the Auction's expiration
    • PM Seller with Buyer's details on the Auction's expiration
  • Supports 5 statuses:
    • Open
    • Hidden
    • Reserved
    • Expired
    • Sold
    • Please note that unlike my old mod, here nothing is automatic. The seller has to take care to switch between statuses.
  • There are listings for:
    • Category Auctions
    • Timeframe (What's New) Auctions
    • Seller Auctions
    • Search Results
  • In view Ad page the visitor can see also:
    • Other Auctions from the same seller
    • Similar Auctions from the same category
  • In all pages there are available the follow blocks having the appearance of widgets:
    • Category Menu
    • Search Form
    • Statistics
    • Latest Auctions
    • Popular Auctions (Most Bids)
    • Soon to expire Auctions.
    • Facebook Like Advanced (Shows users who liked the Auction)
    • RSS Feeds of 10 next to expire Auctions
    • Description in Extra Fields to help user understand what they need to add on those fields.
2.- Usergroup Permissions
  • Can Access the Auctions section (See the Tab menu, see listings, see Auction details).
  • Can Post an Auction
  • Can Bid in Auctions (alse works as can Buy, can Contact Seller)
  • Auctions posts needs or not approval. For trusted usergroups set it to No
  • Maximum amount of concurrent (active) Auctions
  • Photos per Auction
3.- How you can make (a bit) money with it.

Using vBulletin's Subscriptions Manager you can set subscription which will upgrade the subscribers to a higher usergroup with more privilenges in SL Auctions. eg:
  • To restrict post in specific categories. The system works such a way that for each category you can set who can post:
    • All usergroups
    • None usergroup
    • Specific usergroup(s).
  • To allow more days for postings. eg usergroup A can set a maximum of 15 days before the Auction will remove from the system, while usergroup B can set the Ad's duration for 45 days etc.
  • Concurrent Auctions. eg Register users can have only 1 active auction, while your VIP usergroup can has 5 ..or 10 ... or whatever you want.
  • More photos per Auction
4.- Installation
  1. Download and unzip the file Auctions_XXXX.zip
  2. Upload the content of upload folder to the directory where your vB installation is. As a check: auctions.php must be on the same directoru as global.php, forum.php etc. SL Auctions are not working out of vB installation directory.
  3. CMOD 777 the directories:
    1. christeris/auctions/photos
    2. christeris/auctions/photos/thumbs
    3. christeris/auctions/photos/tmp
  4. Goto Admincp and import product-auctions.xml. Double check before if you have another product with the same name.
  5. Set the various settings in Auctions->General settings
  6. Set usergroup permissions
  7. Check and modify if you want PM templates.
  8. Set categories
  9. Set Extra fields (in case that you want them).
5.- SEO URLs
  • If you're using vbSeo open the file Auctions_vBSEO_Custom_Rewrite_Rules.txt and add them to your vbSeo installation.
  • If you're using .htaccasse file copy the contents of htaccess.txt and add it to your current .htaccess files. If you don't have such file and your server is compatible with such files, upload htaccess.txt to your vB directory and rename it to: .htaccess
6.- Copyright Link

Since the time that DBTech released their Copyright Manager, I've removed my own copyrights. I found their action insulting me to maximum. Their wording "Site is powered by vBulletin AddOns and Modules by Dragonbyte Tech" (and not "Some parts of this site"), means that everything there is their own work, ignoring on the worst way the fact that there are 100's of other coders and designers who are supporting this community for years. So, I'm letting the glory to them. No copyrights from my side.

Enjoy it

I found this and I don't think it belongs in this mod. I checked the htaccess and it appears to have the correct info. I'm surprised this wasn't caught by anyone before me.

Sorry... Seems that I updated only the .htaccess file and not vbSeo. Please use these rules:

Hello,

There is a bug with PM templates.

The {bidder} is still the sellers name/account and not really the bidder...

I've fixed it many days ago but seems that I forgot to update the release here. I'll do it tomorrow morning as I'm away from my area now.

Can you add a space to upload a link for a picture in addition to uploading actual picture file to help cut down on files on the server?

Please download and install the latest version 1.2.0 which fixes all reported bugs and also removes my copyright links. From now on all my vB addons are without any visible copyright at page footer.

To upgrade upload ALL files from upload directory and import product-auctions.xml. Is important to upload all files as, I just realized that I never released the previous upgrade 1.1.0.

Marked for the upcoming update. To add it only in the main upload is not professional, so I need to add the same functionality in all uploads, and I need some time for it.

Hi Chris

I have tested your mod..
It's good, but i have a problem whit link.

The Url shows only "auctions-x" and not the name of 'object and category

Standard:
http://www.mysite.com/forum/auctions...witem&itemid=1

vBSEO:
http://www.mysite.com/forum/auctions-1/

Should be corrected vBSEO

www.mysite.com/forums/category/object.html

I did a test auction and let it expire without reaching the reserve price, however I got a message showing that I had won the auction for $10 even though the reserve was set at $250.

Other than that, It's a really cool plugin

There also seems to be a missing bracket behind the seller URL. "=" should be "]", but I don't know where to fix it.

Please click reply to contact seller [URL=www.mysite.com/member.php?u=1admin[/URL] to discuss with him furture details for payment and delivery.
