Extension works great right out of the box. Would recommend it (and I actually have recommended it) to others.

One issue though, I'd love a way to include the ads in my weekly newsletter that is served by acymailing.

HI, this is an good extension and it trully serves my purpose however I wish it came in joomla 1.5 native. Any hope by the developer doing that of now i wouldn't mind paying a few quid for it because it is worth it.

I am using this component since 2008, it's most useful (the best) classifieds component, but yesterday I discover this thread and at the moment I am afraid :(

this component has to be removed, or if somebody is willing to write patch for security hole
Owner's reply

Hello, don't be so afraid, I will check this part.
Anyway the registration part is only activated if you use the "registration when submitting ad" option

So far I tried /DJ Classifieds/ListBingo/Announces/Aardvertiser & ADS Manager is meeting all my needs, google map plugin, interlaces well with CB - I have yet to run into any serious issues with this component, I am pleased to use this, it is old component which may no longer be supported however, there is a ton of resources and the community forums on this site are still active.

I am a fool to waste so much time on other components to find out they don't work.

Nothing can compare to this with out paying for it, others can try but are still in Beta..

Tired of wasting your time? Give this a try, you'll thank me later.

The component is pretty incomplete and still has some bugs.
Doesn't work with SEF URL's properly, doesn't give any additional options when creating a menu other than the category listing (could allow to send the user directly to one category). The ads design is still a bit poor but good enough, whoever wants to change it just access the code. Support is terrible, can't register at the forum (don't receive the activation email) and they take a lot of time to answer e-mails (still waiting response)
Really liked, however, the great quantity of options setting up fields, the category's which can take different fields each and the PMS integration.

This component is great. I would gladly pay for the component as long as it came with a little better support. That's the only thing it lacks. It works, it's stable, and it's so easy to use that chances are you won't need support, but if you do, prepare yourself for some frustration. After searching the support forum, I came across several instances of people asking variations of this issue question, but none of them were answered. Here goes:

I have successfully migrated the AdsManager component to a new Joomla 1.5 installation. All the data is there and working, except the ad photos. Does anyone know how to migrate the photos? I have a site with 3,700 ads (, and it'll take months to re-upload all the pics. I simply moved the photos to the same location within the new Joomla site, but AdsManager doesn't seem to know it. It seems to think that no pictures have ever been uploaded at all. Not broken links or anything, they're simply nowhere to be found in the AdsManager admin backend.

Again, I don't want to denigrate a great product, but the support is simply awful. And, for free, I don't expect it to be any better.

To the creators: Please, please, please release a paid version of this component, so that we can help fund a real support crew to deal with some of these little annoying user issues. The component is worth at least $50. At least. Who's with me? Lets start a petition to give the creators some incentive to take this amazing component to the next level.

This is unmistakably one of the best components that made classifield ads east!! I had a great run with it on my local computer but when I installed joomla on live server and added adsmanager, everything went well except in the end when i try to post an ad as a new user I get a error that says:

DB function failed with error number 1054
Unknown column 'ad_city' in 'field list' SQL=UPDATE jos_adsmanager_ads SET name = 'd’, email = '' , ad_kindofitem = ',0,' , ad_text = 'd' , ad_phone = '' , ad_price = '4', ad_city = 'd' , ad_itemcondition = ',1,', ad_adtitle = 'd' WHERE id = 6

This error has really left me crippled as I cant any support for it anywhere and I cant afford to hire a professional!! But nevertheless a great tool for joomla!!

I installed the Ads Manager and it is awesome, i just wonder if there is a way for the registered users to select one or more category, and get updated when an AD is posted into these categories.
