Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Code Changes Additional Files Translations  

Another mod brought to you by,


[OzzModz] Classifieds, has won MOTM for December 2013 Mod of the Month!

First off this mod, [Chris] Classifieds, has been taken over by me. It did belong to Christos Teriakis. He has since given me full rights to the mod, so I am releasing it here. Only thing I have changed as of yet is the title, added the link and changed some template names, so it is basically the same mod. To upgrade from that mod is the same as any other time, unzip the files, load them to your server, overwriting the old files, then import the new xml. Please remember, this mod is as new to me as anyone installing it, so we are both on a learning curve.

1.- What's this mod?

Is better to say what it is NOT. For those who have used MarysClassifieds, I can say that they are 2 products which you can't compare. 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 slimlined 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.
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 privileges 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 directory as global.php, forum.php etc. Classifieds won't outside 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
    1. 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

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified whenever new updates are available.

* For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps me know how many people are using my work, giving me extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

I appreciate the support!

The column width settings are in "General Options", but that might not help unless you use percentages. Looks like a common css positioning / forum width issue. What are you using for a skin width, fixed or floating? What screen resolution is your monitor set at?

Ok, thanks for replay.

I have removed the right column since our template is so narrow, we think it looks better without.

Right now we do not Classified open to the public because we are building it up.

I send my admin tasks in a PM to you.

Then we have problems with the design of classified not follow our design, must be set manually trim it.

Finally, I discovered that if you placed a bid on a non-priced ad so visible they are not if you click on the menu "My bid"

Unfortunately, the page in Swedish ;-))

Hi,

Have tried with the settings you refer to but it did not help.

It's a completely custom design, which has no name, yes, by the way internally, we call it the "Husbilskompisar2"

Ad deadline

If a user is set to the ad will expire after 2 days, should it not disappear automatically?
Seems like it does not work.

Do you have to manually delete it?
If so, what are the user message?

BTW, awesome mod!

I would also like to remove a couple of the default item fields, just not sure where/how to do it.

I am looking to get rid of "shipping" and "you are" fields. It looks like they are not required, is it possible to just hide them from being displayed if I can't disable them?

I would also like to have ads not expire and remove mention of it - is that possible?

Lastly I would like to change the order the fields are displayed. For example, I added a custom field for "size" which is showing up below all of the default fields, after the payment and shipping fields, but I would like it below the title. Is that possible?

Thanks for a great mod and quick reply!

I don't have one running, it's easy enough to install and test.

I have two default fields I would like to remove and two custom fields I added. What if I use phrases to turn the default fields into what the custom fields are and remove the custom fields. Would that work? Or will that screw something up somewhere?

For example, I don't want the: You are.... Individual/Store Owner (radio buttons)
Can I use phrases to change to: Method of Exchange Pick up/Will deliver (radio buttons)

Is it possible, at the future version, that the admin can adjust the templates/Manage Styles?

You can adjust the templates now, you just need to edit them. What issues you having?

I believe when something is deleted, it removes everything, not sure if there is a cleanup ran on expired items though, if there is it is probably a cron job.

Not entirely sure, I guess you can try it and see.
