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.
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 !
Sorry about my server, I really don't know why I got so many troubles with it ! I am trying to improve that :)
Is it possible to charge users for posting an ad?
Yes, you need to use another component in addition to AdsManager: PaidSystem
There is no watermark. "Joomprod.com" on pictures is a basic text example set in the configuration, you can change the text by your own or remove text in configuration panel.
All features are present for free except payment. You have the possibility to write your own payment system for free.
Version Stable 2.2 works 100% in legacy mode with 1.5.8 don't hesitate to ask if any trouble
Legacy mode is required, and it lacks possibility to override views. With the default design being what it is, this is unusable.
Ads thumbnails generation do not work either.. Totally unusable. 0 stars, really.
No bug like this has been report to me, please contact me for support
Joomla+AdsManager=Classified Ad Website to rival Craigslist (almost).
Only thing I haven't found is how to lose the $ sign from price and have the € / £ signs instead
Expiration control per ad (just like the core joomla controls content items with a starting and ending publishing date)
Default Ordering on Backend so the ads display can be changed
And last but not least, the possibility to manage AdsManager or JDirectory from Front-end
Hoping this could be a little help ideas to grow adsmanager and/or JDirectory I thank you again.
Greetings to all Joomla Community.
