Not 1.5 native and you have to pay 50 Euros for very basic PayPal integration. Finally, the "JOOMPROD.COM" water mark on uploaded images is annoying and unprofessional. Should have automatic general category population function. Download should be marked COMMERCIAL up front. Disappointed.
Owner's reply

There is no watermark. "" 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.

Obviously need more work!

Hi, I think you just forgot to unzip the pack first, then install components and modules

This does not work in Joomla 1.5.8. I had this uninstalled and installed on version 1.0. I really hope that the developer can get this sorted out as it really looks like a nice component. I will also report some other bugs in their forum.
Owner's reply

Version Stable 2.2 works 100% in legacy mode with 1.5.8 don't hesitate to ask if any trouble

Does not work out of the box on my brand new 1.5.8 installation. Trying to add a new ad gives me no messages. No way to know that the ad has been posted or is awaiting approval.

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.

This product was easy to install, and so were the modules. The only module that doesn't display properly is the recently listed module. I am thinking about getting PaidSystem to go with AdsManager, but nobody has written any reviews on it, so maybe I will hold out on that for awhile.

After spending the past few months learning Drupal, and trying to get a decent classified ad site up and running on a hosting plan that doesn't offer old versions of Drupal, I decided to give Joomla a try, my first extension was AdsManager. Wow! I installed Joomla, installed AdsManager, and would have been up and running in a day, but it took me two after deleting the Main Menu (problem in Joomla, not AdsManager). So a quick re-install, and the most time consuming part was re-entering the categories. Don't know how they plan to make it better, but I might come back with some advice later!

Joomla+AdsManager=Classified Ad Website to rival Craigslist (almost).

it makes life so much easier! I used this program for something else and so far it is working perfectly! Thank-you for taking the time to upgrade for 1.5!

Like the Joomla package, this is excellent. I'm not the most patient person and find open source to be crap to install. As a developer this guy has made a real effort to allow the not so experienced user make config changes and produce a useful website. Thanks
Only thing I haven't found is how to lose the $ sign from price and have the € / £ signs instead

Hi Thomas, first things first, THANK YOU for such a good component, I have 2 months using it and works great. But it could be much better if you could make some additions to it, like:

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.

I love this extension. Very flexible and configurable.

I would only add an option to search ads within a distance from a given zip code.

Thanks for this Extension! It is very practical, easy to use. I'm happy to hear about the latest update and the new JDirectory - looking forward to it!

If there's something i appreciate about any piece of software is the ability to reuse and refocus it for several different purposes.
With customizable fields, AdsManager has allowed me to turn a "classifieds" script into a neat Job Board. Together with the PCS extension, one is even able to charge fees for ads. Stunning.
Last but not least, ethics. Contrary to a growing tendency among certain 3rd party developers, Thomas puts the GPL compliance banner above immediate profiting. An attitude which is worth praise and gratitude (in the form of a much deserved donation).

This component is good enough for me. Can't believe they are selling other classifieds components that are junk compare to this one.

Love admanager!

I'm using AdsManager. Thank you Thomas! it works very well. Even you can put this website as a demo. Generally, I don't have big problems. There is a small one. I can't delete the word Price, which seems a default tab name. I think it is not nesessary to have this word on every ad. If you need this field, you can create and delete from fields.
Another problem is that, sometimes users don't get activation links immediately. Today most of users didn't get activation links at all. I decreased the security level from 3 to 2. But it didn't help.
Is there any secret?

Owner's reply

You have unpublish the price field if you don't need it, or just remove the title field to be displayed in the option.
About activation, this is not linked to adsmanager but to joomla :)

If your server has PHP5 then do not bother downloading. This component does not work correctly with PHP5. It only supports uploading jpg pictures only.
Owner's reply

Yes thanks for bug reporting, now it's fixed in 2.1.9

Reviews: 1
This is excellent! easy to install and the mods are great.

I do have one question - can you add a feature where users can post comments per ad?

A seller rating will be great also.

Owner's reply

You'll need to wait for JDirectory (evolution of Adsmanager)
