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

So i have this installed (Marked and Voted) as although we dont have auctions on our site as a rule, we have found a need to hold charity auctions. let me set the scene so i dont receive any "If you cant find it, you should not have it installed" comments.

One of our members left on a family holiday and died in a tragic accident. now the family are struggling to bring his body home. we wish to raise some money to help them and this is ideal to use for that purpose.

I have it installed, I can see all the options. But where are the permissions set for the usergroups ?

I see in the navigation manager that it looks for permissions in a file called "auctions_access" am i missing something ? where can i find it to edit the usergroup permissions.

I was expecting something to be under the Auction Options in the ACP but nothing. I will be the first to admit that im new to vb so any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give to get this up and running as quick as possible.

VB is 4.2.1 PL3

Hi Chris
I have installed and found good.
But why there is no link given to post new action in the All Auctions page itself?
Most of the members will not open usercp to post actions and they can not guess it!!
New Auction posted is not listed in the Activity page?
Is it necessary to upload the file htaccess.txt and where?
Thanks in advance.

in Admincp scroll down to find the menu "User Groups" -> User Group Manager -> Registered Users (click on Go) Scroll down to find the Permissions for Auctions ad found inthe below image.

Anyone found the way to change who the PM is sent from. from what i can gather it has chosen the admin with the lowest user id.

this is a superb addition and after our hosting costs have been paid, i will be supporting the developer with it little paypal bonus.

thanks Chris.

I'm having trouble getting the main image to appear in the listing or in the individual item view. Any ideas?

I don't see a means of selecting the Main Photo. I think that might be the issue.

"Main Photo" is towards the bottom below the "Auction Details", just above "Additional Photos"

This is what I see. Maybe that will help explain.
