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
