Just installed AdsManager today in J!1.5 -- installation was flawless and configuration very smooth and easy. NICE.

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 !

Really this is one of my favorite extensions there is. Only drawbacks - Their website is perpetually down. The adsmanager section of my site is broken and support is not forthcoming. However, had I not broken it... This extension solved my problems and did more than i had hoped it would

I just downloaded this for a project for a customer, and it is really good, I'm relieved to have found it, because I was about to either code one myself or get an overpriced core script to work on!

Thank You!


Is it possible to charge users for posting an ad?
Owner's reply

Yes, you need to use another component in addition to AdsManager: PaidSystem

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.

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!
