i am running 1.3.3, currently i have problems with Croatian letters(čćžšđ)-UTF8, but i see listbingo forum is very active...i think they will solve this in a jiffy.
keep up the good work
This is the best component out there, and I tried I few.
Thank you for your hard work, Joomla is the best especially when there are components of this caliber to use on our sites.
There is only 2 levels for regions.So you can only have for eample London->North London but not London->North London->Tottenham.Such a good extension should support this basic feature.I made an attempt to add a third level of region by inserting inflrmation manually to the database but it is causing the application to crash,just a blank page in the browser.
my second issue is the category module.Most classified website only show the main categories and expend the current category ,which is highlighted.The module ,however display every category in the list.Imagine you have 50 main categories with each of then having 2 sub categories , it is not convenient.
My third issue.For ease of acces it would have been better to design the region module not just to show the current region, but also display other regions while the current region is highlighted.Then user can just select a region an all listing under this region would show.
This is still a nearly perfect extension .
"This is still a nearly perfect extension " and you still rate it 2. Strange!!
Don't get me wrong, I love the look of this classifieds software and I hope the developers continue to push hard to complete this to a stable version as I would certainly use this component if it were stable and functional, hopefully this will not be too long as I do not want to install another classifieds component yet.
My rating has to be average right now but working it would be excellent in my opinion.
Even though this is a young product, it has great potential both technically and functionally. the region / country feature is great. Also the Paypal option (price plan or pay per ad) is very well thought about.
Keep up the good work guys, I am looking forward to the stable versions.
Thanks for offering such a magnificent product for FREE!
You can search and list ads by region which is a bonus as many others do not have this option.
We have been working hard to release stable version, but we have found some more glitches in the core hence we delayed the release till May 5. We are testing listbingo to its fullest and improving it based on feedback we received from the community.
We have achieve stable version of listbingo core and testing it with different addons. These all will be ready within few days and you will be notified about the release.
Apologies for any inconvenience and Thanks for your support. We really appreciate your tremendous support and appreciations.
Apologies if the alpha version did not impress you. We released alpha version to collect feedback and request and we have received lots of feedbacks and feature requests and we have thoroughly worked on it. We will be releasing the first beta of listbingo in this week and we would like you to test it and send us comments.
Default locations - Australia a little difficult to reset to correct location.
Expiry date of listing automatically generated to Jan01, 1970 - I can see no way of altering it.
Posting Form - Contains headings that cant be changed such as 'Zip_Postal' etc ...
So far so good - as you say its still alpha, and I certainly wouldnt use it on a live site yet
For everything else it looks like a fine extension. Congratulations!
