I have tried Listbingo 1.3.8 few months back and it was great. It has everything that a normal classified system should have. Now I just downloaded Listbingo Pro 1.4 and I am amazed by the capabilities of the component. Guest posting, multiple categories entry, priceable categories, option to show video in ads and many more, wow !!!!
I had some problem to setup and migrate from 1.3.8 to pro 1.4 but their support team help me out to fix them all within 24 hrs. That is really great. I feel the worth of the money I spend in their subscription.
It is very hard to find such extra ordinary component these days. Hats off to Gobingoo team !! Keep it up and amaze us with more of such products in coming up years.
Surprise us !!!
I had a few small tech challenges but one email and 24 hrs later all was fixed by the support team - Pretty impressive these days.
Thanks Go Bingo
I'm working with this extension since a couple of week, and I like very much the experience.
The look & feel of the extension is much better than others I've tried, and it has all funcionality I was needing.
There are surely some issues, like in all components or extensions I have worked with, but in that case... I've been able to solve all of them thanks to the Outstanding support provided. Very quick, very efficient, very detailed.
I can not do anything else but strongly recommending it.
Furthermore, all the documentation is for users, not for developers, I am trying to find something about the code, but there is not information available.
What is worse, i found a bug, when creating extra fields; if a field is selected when clicking "new", it doesn't creates a new, but edit the one that is selected, in other words, we have 2 edit buttons on it; the "new" button and the "edit" button.
Have you contacted support? or Posted in the forum? There is no bug in the code itself, also remember Listbingo is just a component that runs along side other extensions too, and there are other factors that can affect its proper functioning.
About the developer documentation, The documentation is available for developer only. Why? because we have seen general users altering code and then asking for support on their altered code, which violates our guidelines for support. We cannot give a support for altered codes.
Please review the product features and make sure you contact support or forum before you post any review about the product. Low rated reviews are not good for the extension, moreove these are the reasons, people will not try a good extension.
Most installation and set up is intuitive, and they provide basic set up instructions, but any questions you have about add on products is another question.
First off, it says free which is true for basic use. Any customization or integration in your site will require add ons which do have costs.
This being said, you will fall in love with the extension and make the leap towards purchasing the addons if they would only answer any questions. Apparently support is only available with subscriptions as well. They would make a killing on the add-ons, I usually won't buy them but I would on this one if they just provided support with the purchases. If they change this, I will give 5 stars. As far as usefulness for me right now, I would give 1 star, but honestly it does deserve the 4. I hope the developers realize they have a great product and could easily make lots of money if they provided support.
I am currently building a jomsocial site, and have been trialling Listbingo & Adsmanager, and I really wanted listbingo to be good as it looks perfect for my needs. However it is a complete waste of time, and considering it's free I am not sure why the developers have even made it.
I downloaded & installed it about 3 hours ago and so far have found the following problems:
1/Images: I uploaded 3 very small ones a few times for test purposes - only 1 image shows - no matter what i do.
2/Reply via email to advert does not work
3/Front page layout chooser does not work (why bother putting 4 choices in the box???)
4/No breadcrumbs to return to main screen.
These are BASIC requirements of any functioning classifieds ad component. Who cares if it's "fully customizable" if it does not do the basics. Basically this site looks like a classifieds site, but is not one. It begs the question: why put it out there if it does not work? it's free, the developers have gained nothing, if anything they have lost my custom because if this is the rubbish they are putting out then i would not buy anything off them - crazy eh!
I would pay through the nose for a working, modern classifieds component, PLEASE someone make a commercial (working) one.
Back to adsmanager for me I suppose
All the things which you have listed above are not issues actually, you need to know about the settings of Listbingo before mentioning these as issues.
Here are the solutions to your so called issues:
1) 1/Images: I uploaded 3 very small ones a few times for test purposes - only 1 image shows - no matter what i do.
Check the mootools version of your template, if you are using Listbingo 1.3.7 then upgrade the mootools of your template to 1.2.x, all the uploaded images will be displayed in the ad detail page.
2) Reply via email to advert does not work
How can a system reply if it doesn't have email format? You need to create an email format on the event "Reply Email" so that ad owner will receive an email if some one reply him/her via Reply link.
3) Front page layout chooser does not work (why bother putting 4 choices in the box???)
To make it work set the Homepage of your site as
4) No breadcrumbs to return to main screen.
Enable the "Breadcrumb Configuration" to display breadcrumb.
Before submitting these kind of review, contact Listbingo support team for help. Without knowing how to configure the settings of Listbingo, you cannot call it issue.
I've been using ListBingo for a month now, enough time to uncover a few annoying bugs. Unfortunately it seems that nobody from GoBingo is active in the ListBingo "Community Forum" on their website, or answers any of the hundreds of questions and issues raised in this "forum" - it seems the only way to get support is to pay for it?
Even the "bug report" icon on the GoBingo site doesn't work! Its a sad state of affairs when there is a "bug" in your "bug report system"!
As GoBingo point out themselves on their website - "you get what you pay for" - and in the case of the free version of ListBingo, be aware that you are paying nothing, so don't expect any support for that!
This should be contrasted with many other free software packages which ARE actively and well supported FREE by their distributors (prime example being uddeIM).
So yes, ListBingo a nice little "free" package that performs reasonably well as a simple classified ads component, but its severely let-down by the fact that there are numerous bugs in the software, none of which you can get any help with unless you are prepared to pay for support. Shame.
I wanted something more up to date and looking around at many Classified Ads systems I decided on Listbingo, and yes it is very easy to install, set up, and it looks good.
BUT and there is always a but to free sortware, these are the addons, so out came the paypal and I brought 4 very cheap addons that would do everything I wanted, add some photos, link to my CB profiles.
The addons came via email so a quick down load, plug and play, so you would think but 3 out of 4 didn't work, so a quick email back to support STILL WAITING that s two days.
Lucky for me Adsmanager is still working
install it... Oh, not enough!
Wait... buy add-ons as you like.. Yeas that is it.
After 2-4 months... oh, need more, of course they released more updates and new add-ons too. Yeas that is it. After one year... oh, need specials.. Ha Ha, why not just ask their developers.
So Brilliant idea.
Am Sure after 2 years they may need to change it's name into the Mastery as it will fit on all joomla needed area indeed.. Hope Joomla 1.6 Version coming out soon.
