and many more, just test it right now on this site!
if you were looking for a classified component, you are on the right place !!
I installed it and works excellent, very nice, very easy, very light.
I was using sobi2 (good but many problems and very complicated)
Adsmanager solves lot of my problems!!!!
Only one bug: do not show the price, but i'm sure I will solve this problem.
BTW THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!
2. Very poor style, with very little to attach CSS to. Many nested tables without class names that make it impossible to change the look with a pure CSS solution. For this reason alone I uninstalled.
But that's not what's worse, what really gets me mad is the (lack of) support. I've sent about 8 posts on their forum regarding different topics and never got a single reply. Have e-mailed the developer and haven't got a reply.
The shame is that it would be a great component if they just improve these basic things.
Ads Factory or Ads Manager. Both have their strong points and weaknesses.
Ads Factory claims to be an out of the box solution, and for the most part this is accurate.
Ads Manager on the other hand seems to be more of a base program where you can use extensions to customize it to your taste. The developer seems to understand that you are going to want to modify
the program and has taken great efforts to allow you to do the modifications yourself.
Ads Factory is built on the "smarty" template system. If you are wanting to customize the program, you'd better know what you are doing. It seems they feel the program is fine the way it is and if you want to make changes to it, you are free to do so or you can pay them to do it for you.
Both have support forums and they seem to get a lot of repetitive questions. Its unstandable, both developers seem a bothered by that. Ads Factory will tell you in a few hours you
should have checked the forum, where as Ads Manager it will take a few days for a response if the issue has already been covered.
Ads Factory has one very big advantage over Ads Manager. It is easy to customize the out going emails. You click on settings, mail settings, and select from a drop down list the e-mail you would like to modify.
Ads Manager currently doesn't have this feature. It may be possible to change the emails in Ads Manager but as of this writing I still have not figured out how.
If you are on a tight budget like I am Ads Manager is probably your best bet if you can live without being able to easily modify the emails.
If you want an out of the box solution or are already a savy smarty developer or would rather pay someone to modify your site for you then Ads Factory is for you.
So far so good...I'm waiting for the v2.5 Stable...soon
As I said before, send me an email with your erros, I will be able to fix them, no time to look in depth in the forum currently
I am using version 2.51 and here are my observations:
1. Some ads appear in frontpage while they should be showing in a new page.
2. Some ads will not show on the menu module, however, when you click on the menu link, the ads show up.
3. Don't try to post in more than one ad category as no Ad will show.
4. Support is not that great on their site. I believe that questions posted for more than 2 weeks should be reviewed and acknowledged by a Support person.
I would consider changing my ratings if there are
steps to address the above mentionned issues.
1- Not aware of such bug
2- did use try the two differents kind of SQL query (module option)
3- It's working great on all the sites I know
4- Forum is for the community, please free to contact me using my email adress
It works, but in the final analysis, the product is not polished. Lots of minor, irritating issues, certainly with 1.5.8.
Forums are not tremendously active either. I still have threads there from weeks ago with no response.
If you decide to install, and really run it in a production environment, arm yourself with lots of patience.
Currently there is no issue reported on Stable Version 2.2.2.
If you are using the 2.5 RC1 :) if you have some issues, please just realize that this is just a Release Candidate.
Don't hesitate to report me bugs via email has this is written on the main page (and not in the forum for 2.5 RC1)
The only issue that buggs me constantly is the Date field. I tried all sorts of versions of Joomla and still cannot get it to work - every time I try to open the calendar by clicking the calendar icon all the other fields are blanked out and the calendar fails to appear and there's no way to make it work.
If your purpose is to use adsmanager especially for the date component (I tried the RC1 version) then you're probably out of luck.
For the rest - the extension is great!
Was installed on Joomla 1.0 and 1.5 without any problem. Of course, it is just in Beta and some important tools has to be improved (email forms, gmap, and esthetically details we can not modify easily), but after intensive tests, my web site based on this soft is 80% on ! Great job.
Hi, Can you send me a mail again about your issue.
In legacy mode, it's working great for a lot of users, I am not aware your issue.
Only issue I have seen is that, whenever I ad a new item to a category, the total number of items (as shown in the summary module) in ALL categories increases by 1. So, I have a total of five items in the entire system. The system has 9 different categories. EACH category says it has 5 items. The total number of items ("All") says "45". Checked all the config options but don't see anything that can fix that.
Community Builder integration is there but is a bit buggy. With CB integration activated I would get bumped to the CB profile page whenever a new item was added. I turned it off and everything else worked fine.
A confirmation e-mail to the user would be great, as well as the ability to set a different administrator e-mail address than the web site's general administrator.
All in all, a great extension!
Regarding the number of ads by category, did you try the different type of SQL query (module option) to sort out this error.
Don't hesitate to contact me if the error is still there !
