After reviewing several classified joomla packages on the market, I was convinced JD Classifieds was the best on the market. The Live Demo says it all really, but also you can get a good idea of what the service will be like from his youtube tutorials before you buy. He's always saying "just send me an email and I will help you out". That's exactly what he did without having to wait forever for a reply.
TRUST ME ONE THIS ONE!! Brad the developer is a pro and I am giving him rave reviews on this not only because of the programme he developed, but also of the after service.
Lastly, this is such good value for money I was almost feeling sorry for the guy. I was getting this awesome tool for peanuts. Now I'm not suggesting he raise the price here, but I am going to be buying his other programmes once I finish my little project.
If you are watching this Brad - Keep up the good work!!
All in all, an excellent extension
I've looked for a extension of this sort, reviewed them all but this is far out the best in his kin.
Price quality is perfect, support is the best I've ever encountered.
There are some futures that I would like to see added but this is a personal thing and I will surely suggest this to Brad the developer of this extension.
So once more, my compliments to the developer and thanks for the support so far, greetz Jack Holland
But there is a list of things I believe that can make this component go from Good to Great!:
1. User ability to view and edit all their ads they posted.
2. drop down menu for the listings to sort them by "relevance, high prices, low prices, newest ad, oldest ad, etc."
3. Save the 'location' they clicked on so when they visit the website again it goes straight to their locations classifieds.
Need to improve a lot...
Thanks for your feedback. Both custom fields and parent categories will be included in the next update along with other added functions.
It installs flawlessly, it works and it looks good.
Customer support is superb and a very minor issue was addressed within hours in spite of the time difference. I unreservedly recommended it as the best of Classified Ads extensions and having tried most of them I feel qualified to say so.
My only caveat is that it is completely US focused and although the states themselves are editable, it would be very useful to have the back-end facility to change the 'State' label to the more appropriate 'County' or 'Area' for use in UK and other countries.
Finding every single instance of 'State'in the code is tricky and time consuming but it can be done - I hope.
This is a superbly professional extension that sets a standard and is very well worth the cost. Five stars from me - no hesitation!
Thanks for the kind review! Our team agrees that we need change the "States" functionality to fit all countries. "States" will be changed to "locations" in the next version which will be released soon
