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.
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.
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).
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?
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 :)
Suggestions: I had to rework the module and the component to not show the Category (should be a on/off feature). Category Images (on/off feature) as well. And when I tried to add more fields to a ad, only 2 showed, no more. Also You should be able to configure the ads more.. I had to change all of mine to be left aligned.
But what I love is the ease to work with it. And it does move smoothly. And its easy to modify. What I am afraid of it when it comes time to upgrade I have alot of changes.
The only glitch I could find is its inability to upload PNG files via the new ad submissions form. I suppose there's a fix, but copped out and simply changed the appropriate language file entry accordingly, with JPG and GIF uploads being good enough for me.
Room for improvement mainly in design (templete support etc, without php coding the layout can not be changed) and some sort of documentation would have been nice (Alot of guessing right now)
The problem is that the developer appears to have gone awol and hasn't been seen on the support forums since August 7 of this year. So, answers to those such as mine aren't being solved as there's no support person around who can help.
This is a huge shame as I can't therefore use AdsManager if I can't save the configurations for it and if it's no longer going to be developed further... :-(
The currency sign will not change and and you can not access ads it says "you are not authorised to view this page please login"
I have reinstall the component but still the same, post in forums, no help. I really wanted to use this component. I am not sure if I am the only person with these problem but I will need some help.
