Real Estate, Cars, Pets, Electronics, Furniture, ... whatever your classified project is, AdsManager can be configured to fit many needs.
AdsManager provides plenty of options, flexible views and extensions to help you to build your websites.
AdsManager is used by webmasters and developers alike:
If you are a webmaster and not a developer, you will like Adsmanager as a ready to deploy solution
If you are a developer and you want a component that can be easily adapted or extended. AdsManager is for you. The code has been written using the MVC Joomla architecture and with KISS principle (KISS= Keep it simple, Stupid!) KISS systems work best because they are kept simple rather than made complex. Simplicity is the key design goal and unnecessary complexity is avoided.
Users can create their own ad and select a predefined categorie.
We especially like the category overview and the flexibility for fields.
We had some problems with the integration of paidsystem and the Adsmanager, but received rapid and to the point support.
Some tips, or remarks for improvement:
-Using tables for the categorie view makes the Adsmanager less flexible. We'd love to see some more classes or divs instead of cells.
-The integration with paidsystem is somewhat confusing (where do I determin the final price paid for an ad and so forth)
-We would like to be able to completely disable paidsystem with a switch. (As far as we can see, the only way now is to disable the component and all plugins.
Great component guys! Please keep up the good work.
This extension solved a number of my needs related to creating a community portal for a small town in Wisconsin.
I would definitely recommend the Ads Manager extension for anyone wishing to have classified ads on their website.
Big shortfall is that there is no import/export for ads and categories. for me with over a 1000 categories it is going to be a pain in the *** to get it all working.
Big thumb up for the creator!!!
I also wanted to connect the extension with Community Builder and it was so simple! The Ads manager creates a link to the profile of the person who made the ad and your community members have a section where they can track all there Ads easily.
Furthermore the developers provide excellent and friendly support!
Thanks guys! Keep up the good work!
Deployment has been easy. I am using the component to create a small ads section, including a (rather exotic) "car pooling" ad category.
It is flexible and allows to create our own fields, which I have appreciated, and to set up the way these fields should appear in column display monde or in individual ad display mode.
I nonetheless don't rate it 5 stars for it should go even further and allow us to personalize the way the default fields (title + image) appear in individual column mode. I for example don't appreciate having these small images "no image" displayed in my carpooling column view.
Don't hesitate anyway to use it. It's simple and powerfull.
