1.- What's this mod?

Is better to say what is NOT this mod . For those who have used MarysClassifieds, I can say that they are 2 products which you can't compate. MarysClassifieds had dozens of features, but when I installed in my site I realized that I need only 10% of those features. Maybe less. This is SL Classifieds. A minimalist version of MarysClassifieds, but I bet that 70% of the webmasters will find this one more pretty, more usefull.
  • It supports 4 types of Classifieds:
    • For Sale
    • Wanted
    • For Trade
    • Free Offers
  • Supports unlimited categories
  • Supports Extra fields (but not searchable)
  • Has PM templates for:
    • PM user when admin approves his Classifieds
    • PM user when admin rejects Classified
    • PM seller when a user Makes an Offer
    • PM seller when a user clicks Buy it
    • PM seller when a use uses the contact form
  • 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 classifieds
    • Timeframe (What's New) Classifieds
    • Seller Classifieds
    • Search Results
  • In view Ad page the visitor can see also:
    • Other classifieds from the same seller
    • Similar classifieds from the same category
  • In all pages there are available the follow blocks having the appearance of widgets:
    • Category Menu
    • Search Form
    • Statistics
    • Latest classifieds
    • Popular classifieds
    • Soon to expire classifieds.
  • Version 1.5 additions:
    • Facebook Like Advanced (Shows users who liked it)
    • RSS Feeds of last 10 Classifieds
    • Seller has the ability to not mark a classifieds as reserved when a user clickc BuyNow, in case that he has stock of the same items and he wants to keep classifieds active.
    • Added description in extra fields appearing as help text in add/edit form.
    • In case that a category has no subcategories, beside the "No more categories" added an icon/link to previous category level.
2.- 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 Classifieds. 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 Ad will remove from the system, while usergroup B can set the Ad's duration for 45 days etc.
  • Concurrent Ads. eg Register users can have only 1 active ad, while your VIP usergroup can has 5 ..or 10 ... or whatever you want.
  • More photos per Ad
3.- Installation
  1. Download and unzip the file Classifieds_XXXX.zip
  2. Upload the content of upload folder to the directory where your vB installation is. As a check: classifieds.php must be on the same directoru as global.php, forum.php etc. SL Classifieds are not working out of vB installation directory.
  3. CMOD 777 the directories:
    1. christeris/classifieds/photos
    2. christeris/classifieds/photos/thumbs
    3. christeris/classifieds/photos/tmp
  4. Goto Admincp and import product-classifieds.xml. Double check before if you have another product with the same name.
  5. Set the various settings in Classifieds->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).
4.- SEO URLs
  • If you're using vbSeo open the file Classifieds_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
5. CMS Widget / Forum Sidebar Block for Latest Classifieds
  1. Shows latest 5 Classifieds. If you want to change the number to another value change at 1st line: $maxitems = 5;
  2. Installation as CMS Widget
    1. Goto Admincp-> vBulletin CMS-> Widgets
    2. Click "Create New Widget" at the list bottom
    3. Set Widget Type: PHP Direct Execution
    4. Give a Title which appears at the widget. eg Last Classifieds, or.. Last 5 Classifieds etc
    5. Click SAVE
    6. Find in the list the new widget and click configure at the right side
    7. Replace the example code, with the code from Widget_Latest_Classifieds.txt
    8. Click Save
    9. Goto Layout and add it in any section you want
    10. Click Save (Layout)
  3. Installation as Forum sidebar Block
    1. Goto Admincp-> Forums & Moderators -> Forum Block Manager
    2. Click Add Block
    3. In the next screen "Select block type: Custom HTML/PHP"
    4. Click Continue
    5. Title: Latest Classifieds
    6. Content Type: PHP
    7. Content: Copy & Paste the code from Widget_Latest_Classifieds.txt
    8. Click Save. The block will be now visible to your forum sidebar
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

  1. I'm not anymore a vB coder, and I'm not planing to go commercial with any of my vB work. That's why:
    1. I gave all my mods (20+) to someone else. I'm not so idiot to offer for free my 7 years work if I had in mind to start selling mods again.
    2. I placed that note in the main post that my code can be freely reused by anyone who wants to release this mod (and all upcoming ones) for vB3 or vB5.
  2. The mods that you're seeing now and all the upcoming ones, are mods that I'm coding for my own use, in my own site http://www.lagadas.com. Once more, since last year I'm a forum admin just like you, and not a coder. So all my work will have the features that I found usefull for my own use, and not for your use. Sure I agree that maybe a discussion thread should be valuable for you. But is something that I don't need. And as long as I don't need it in my site why to spend my time adding it?
  3. Talking for threads and discussions. If you check at: http://www.christeris.net/dev42/ you'll see that in the articles/cms mod I'm using the forum engine. Because for my articles section, yes, I want discussion. The same for my reviews section.
  4. There are many admins having spent thousands dollars for custom work as they want to have their site unique. I don't care to have a unique site that's why I'm happily sharing my work. But at this point starts and ends on the same time my offer. I'll offer the work that I did for me, but I don't plan to work extra for something which will be useless for me.
Thank you for your attention and understanding

Don't think that I'm expecting to have profits from my site. Not even a single chance. Everything is about my "ego". I registered that domain back to 1998. 15 years now. At that time nobody even knows about internet in my small town (10,000 citizens). Now I found 3 sites working as "portals" here. Portal on their meaning is a simple page full of advertisments. That's why I want to start it as soon as possible.

After all for sure I'll add some extra features. eg A social media sharing is a must. A simple positive/negative rating also. Not forget to mention that adding extra fields in search form is also very usefull. But step by step. Need time and clear mind.

Chris

Are you sure you gave your usergroup permission to do so?

There are 2 ways:
1.- Being in Classifieds secrion (after clicking Classifieds Tab), ...or...
2.- From your UserCp (Settings)

but as Charlie Delta said, first of all you need to have set permissions for posting. Being Admin doesn't means that you've by deafult permissions to post.

Excellent mod. Rated and nominated.

May I make one small suggestion?

Remove the 'Expires in:' limit for admins. The site I'm working with needs that to be unlimited for certain items that the admin posts.

Thank you Mate

You can set a high amount for expiratin for admins (usergroup permissions). eg 3650 for 10 years. If you want to remove that line at all in view ad page ....come on... it's a toy for you to add a condition there

LOL, I didn't even see the setting. Sheesh, you really have thought of everything! No need to remove the field with that setting available.

Very few mods really impress me, but this one is just amazing.
