3) Contact Chad at Panjo: chad@panjo.com to activate your marketplace.
4) When a seller goes to a new or old subforum dedicated to buying/selling/trading, and clicks on the "post new thread" button, the mod will load a listing creation form.
5) The seller will create a listing. The listing will appear in the marketplace. A synchronized copy of the listing will appear in the appropriate buy/sell/trade subforum.

Yes, this plugin is free.

Can you make money with this plugin?

Yes - we have plans for sellers to enhance the visibility of their listings via promotional options. On that note, Panjo currently supports a widget that features listings. The widget or ad unit takes a variety of input variables. Contact info@panjo.com to get access to the widget for your site.

You asked, "will Panjo add features like the ability to limit listings to certain user groups?"

Panjo currently has a feature that allows you to limit which user groups can create a listing. You can find this setting in your admin cp under the Panjo Marketplace options.

You asked, "if we are not using paypal and someone clicks the buy button, is the listing considered sold?"

Yes, that is correct. If a seller indicates that he/she wants to collect payment on their own. Then the listing gets the equivalent of a 'commit to purchase form.' If a buyer completes that form, then the system marks the item as sold. If the sale falls through, the seller would need to relist the item for sale.

In our experience, falsely completed 'buy now' forms are a rare occurrence. If that becomes a major problem for your community, we would be happy to review features that could help address that. We obviously want to reduce work for buyers and sellers, not create more work for them.
You know what, your product will in our forum because we are so convinced by the way you respond to all posts. we always feared putting up mods that eventually have no response from its coder or poorly answered. We deeply appreciate the reply you gave and we will be looking forward to put up our mod.

All kinds of good stuff from Panjo:

Redesign of the marketplace is coming. This includes new designs for the main marketplace gallery and the listing detail pages.

There is a new 'relist' feature for sellers.

There is a new feature to 'require payment processing.'

There is a new feature to collect listing fees.

So is there no way to choose what user groups can see the classifieds? And restrict what user groups can buy?

I have upgraded my forum to 4.2.2 and now i can't login it says:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Any idea how to fix?

I'm assuming it means the panjo_selling entry in the user table doesn't exist, but it does .. I don't use Panjo.

Im working in GBP and when the classified gets posted to the chosen forum the '' symbol is not displayed. instead I have the special character code displayed instead. This means editing each post.
Any help appreciated.

I remember when this plugin was originally Enthusify. I was excited to try out the new Panjo plugin as it looks really slick, and the function is quite mobile friendly. Unfortunately, as the plugin is *heavily branded* with no paid option to remove, I had no choice but to uninstall.

If there is ever an option to remove the branding, I'd consider this plugin again.

Hi guys i have the 4.2.2 version installed and was trying this, that look a really nice product but...

I stop when reading your installation guide, i don't know what to think...
Why you ask to disable the vbulletin protections???
And why the plugin doesn't work of default in https??????????????????????
And also why I must insert my admin cp account details in the panjo site??

These are your instructions to install the plugin:

Disable The Apache Module Mod_Security

Symptom:

You are getting a message when creating or managing your Panjo marketplace that says:
There was a problem getting your forum info.



What is causing this?

There are a few potential causes of the above problem, but in 95% of cases, it is because you are running an apache module called “Mod_security” which is known to cause problems with vBulletin. (For this reason, Internet Brands, the developers of vBulletin, have even created a diagnostic tool to detect the more serious issues caused by this module.)

What is this module for?

The short answer is that it exists as a backup for insecure code on your site. vBulletin is secure by default. An example for potentially insecure code would be custom code written by inexperienced vB developers.

Here is a link with a more thorough answer:
http://www.inmotionhosting.com/suppo...s-it-important

How do I disable this module?

In most cases, the module has been enabled by your vbulletin hosting company and can only be disabled by them. You will need to contact them to get this resolved.

In some cases, you may be able to disable it with cPanel. Here is a link that can walk you through that if that option is available: http://www.inmotionhosting.com/suppo...bers/406-error

Alternatively, you may be able to disable it by modifying your .htcaccess file. Here is a link that can help you with that. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...-htaccess-file

However, we strongly recommend that you contact your host, since the cPanel and .htcaccess solutions have not worked for sites where the module was enabled by the host.

How will my forum be affected if I disable it?

It protects against a certain type of vulnerability if the developer writing the code on your server (vB devs or plugin coders) don't know how to make it safe. It has the unfortunate side effect generating false positives and blocking some secure scripts. If it's gone it will stop doing both of these things. This generally only matters to you if you're running insecure, custom code.
Other Recommendations

1. Make sure your site-clock is accurate.

Time-zone does not matter, but if we make a request at 5:09pm PST and your site says its currently 5:45pm PST, the request will fail.

2. Make sure the plugin is accessible to logged-out users.

The plugin is located at your forum root. (Example: http://www.yoursite.com/classifieds.php)

The reason for this is that our servers will be treated like logged-out users and can’t communicate with the plugin if a login is required for that page.

3. Make sure that cURL is enabled.

4. The plugin will not work if https is enabled site-wide.

The Panjo plugin operates in an iframe and needs to have a certificate FTP’d into your site for HTTPS to work on it. Unfortunately, certificates have to be renewed regularly, which makes it unfeasible for us to implement at this time.


I'm a little bit confused...

From what I saw the plugin basically iframes all the content from their site. Admincp settings shows a blank page unless you disable https.
All your registered members must first register an account with Panjo. When they make a listing its hosted on Panjo and the subsequently created forum thread is just a link to their marketplace. Pretty much everything about their plugin is designed to collect your user's information (rather than using it directly through the plugin) and spam them with Panjo branded marketplace emails.

It sounds like you activated the version of Panjo (4.2.2) that comes with vBulletin 4.2.2. The latest version of Panjo fixes this bug. The latest version of Panjo, as of this thread post, is 4.2.2.0.10. You can always check with me, Chad, at Panjo (info@Panjo.com) or this vBulletin.org page for the latest version of Panjo.

Thanks for these great questions.

On the topic of https: Short version: Panjo supports SSL. Contact us for some custom configuration help. Long version: Most Panjo partners don't have an SSL certificate. Therefore, all Panjo transaction pages leverage Panjo's SSL to maximize the security and protection of payment information and personally identifiable information of buyers and sellers. Kudos to you if you have implemented SSL on your site. If that is the case, contact us at Panjo and it is possible for us to help you configure your Panjo install to leverage your SSL implementation. The plugin is 100% secure. It was tested thoroughly by Internet Brands (owners of vbulletin) in order to be pre-installed on vbulletin 4.2.2. The plugin works in an iframe that communicates with our servers. This communication also allows us to create threads for new listings, and update those threads when the items get sold or get edited. On-site HTTPs and some mod_security rules interfere with this communication. With a tiny bit of configuration, both of these can be modified to work with our servers. Additionally, Panjo checkout pages and "sell an item" pages open in their own windows and utilize best practices for SSL / HTTPs, and PCI compliance.

On the topic of your admin CP credentials: Short version: Some aspects of Panjo's administrative tools require a NEW Panjo admin credential set. Long version: When you are logged into your Admin CP, you will find a new nav bar option on the left, "Panjo Marketplace." Some of the Panjo Marketplace admin tools require you to log into Panjo's servers to administer. For those remote admin tools, you create a new credential set that is different from your Admin CP credential set.

Panjo is very secure. Panjo is MUCH more secure than a legacy classifieds subforum that does not use SSL.
