I have evaluated most of free ads extensions. Among them Almond is the best with all features. It includes moderating which is essential. Only negative thing I see is mobile incompatibility. I hope they will release mobile compatible version very fast.

Great extension for a basic classified ads site. The extension allows a high degree of customisation. I had one problem after installation and that was quickly resolved by the developer(s) through email - even though it was the free version that I had installed! Very impressed and grateful. Room for improvement? I wish that the CCS file was a bit simpler, and that the developer(s) would dispense with the seemingly pointless password in the backend. But otherwise I am quite happy with the extension.

Great extension! Easy to install, straight forward and intuitive to use, easy to modify. The support team is very responsible and responsive, had all my questions answered within 24 hours. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a free Classified ads component, and this one was the first and only one I found. I am no Joomla! newbie, but I am too old to be good (or that's my excuse anyway) so I need extensions that are intuitive to set up - this was PERFECT in that respect! In just under two hours, all included, I had the basic classifieds website I was aiming for. THANK YOU almondsoft!

We have been using the Ultimate edition for over a year and are very satisfied.
It was easy to install, has been very stable, we have had no trouble modifying the layout to suit our needs and Almondsoft have been very quick to respond to our questions we had along the way.

This component is easy to install.Once installed, the component is pretty much set to go.

Developer is responsive to follow-up questions and is very helpful. The classified ads is self-explanatory for users and user-friendly.

This component has the best of both worlds – it is simple to install and configure yet very effective and nicely presented.
As soon as it is installed, you see a picture of what the front page will looks like. You link the component to a menu item and hey presto – it works! There are only two configuration areas, an admin interface and a configuration section where you can set the whole component up to suit your requirements.
Basically, it can be set for use with from one to any amount of categories and from one to any amount of countries. The nice thing is that you can customise one particular area, save it, test it and then go back in quickly and change or set up the next step.
All in all, a very useful, free component and highly recommended by me. The support is reasonable and friendly and I suspect the paid for version will offer even more and better facilities.
Well worth a go.

I did this script for my site and it works great. I did need some help with one thing not working at first and the staff promptly fixed it for me too :). I have the Pro Version.

This is a really good extension and it encompasses a lot of very interesting features.
Moreover, the help of dev team is really enjoyable for guys like me!
The only point that I could push forward, is the lack of complementary modules that could make adclassified websites more powerfull.
Thanks again for your job!

I have a paid version, not the non commercial version. I tried the free version as a test as AlmondSoft suggests. It installed and worked in a flash.

There are about 6-7 versions from free to Ultimate. No matter what you settle on there is something in the next package up that you will want. That is life. The free version works well, and has a two level geo-location setup. Like state/town or anything else you want to use it for.

You can upgrade at the difference in price between versions, but you can't upgrade the content of the system, databasse wise. You have to start over.

So, buy what you want to start with.

Extensive location database files are supplied with upper versions. I.E. "The World". Saves a LOT of typing.

It is easier to cull out what you don't want than to enter it by hand.

You can add to the location data base incrementally. Start with Portugal and add the US etc.

The web site has extensive live demos and explanations. I have never seen such a complete site. Purchase and product deliver was "instant", and Bo has been very responsive to questions and providing hands on support.

This extension is superb. If there were 10 stars I would give it 10 stars. The support is great, the flexibility and technical detail is excellent, the team at Almond Software have provided joomla with one of the finest extensions available on this directory for download. It is easily better than virtually all other classifieds software online. Great job!

Almond Classifieds is the best Classified Ads extension for Joomla, so far!
1. It offers a free version. You can download the free version and try it out 100%, instead of a demo page where you don't get to know the extension very well, especially when it comes to customizing the component to fit your template.
2. Lightweight and Easy to customize.
3. Simple and straightforward.
4. Pro version comes with full support.
5. Affordable and fair price.
6. It does what it is supposed to do. Just need to adjust the look, and some minor things here and there.

I give this extension 5 stars! Excellent job,

First of alla thanks to almond team for creating such a excellent Component. I've created a Module to show latest classified items which can be used in homepage. contact me if anyone needs it.

It does work in Joomla 1.7, but the restrictions in the free version make it pretty much unusable (there is no user integration into the Joomla user base, there is no search function, e-mail is not smtp based and uses incorrect php parameters -it takes the localhost, not the domain you are using which is a joke).
I would probably still buy the commercial version, but the price they ask for that does not make any sense to me, especially with the risk of not getting the functionality I need.
For me, the search for a good and affordable tool continues.

So far this plugin looks pretty good, but I have a major problem with it. When I make a page to display the Classifieds, it FAILS the W3C code check with over 140 Errors and about the same Warnings. WAY to many.

The HTML code it outputs is very bad in my opinion. Which by all the major Search Engines say that can/will bring down the SERPS for that
Website. In turn I would have to do major core hacks to make the output code Validate with the W3C to feel happy using this plugin.

If the Pro version has poor HTML output also, I wouldn't waste my money for it.

If this is a fluke then my bad, if not I would rather go with something like Noah's Classifieds instead.

this is my NEW favorite extension. absolutely incredible developing bypasses the login because a user creates a new ad on the front end with a separate email and password to edit ad. therefore kiddies, this DOES WORK with community builder 1.2 latest and i imagine ANY COMPONENT even if it uses login! it also works beautifully in joomla 1.7x!! oh and this free classified extension is quite possibly the best SIMPLE classified solution you have ever used - not to mention a simple and light component. i did have to turn off avatar sampling because my photos werent showing at first and animated gifs dont stay animated but i imagine this is doable with imagemagick. i just cant believe this. it is not to good to be true... its just really good! thank you and i will consider the commercial version if all remains well but free rocks too! xx den

The free version is absolutely great, no question about it. The only thing which is missing is a module which can show anywhere in the site the latest ads, most favorite, most visited or top ads for specific categories.

The support is also fantastic, I get a reply in just a few hours!! Thank you for such a great free Joomla extension.

This extension is just what I needed for my project and came across just by pure luck because I was misled by the 3 1/2 stars review. I'm still going throughout the specifics of it, hopefully the CSS styling won't be too difficult to change.

freaking awesome, this component have all you need for a classified site.
I cant figure out something more i could need for a ad site.
Easy to setup easy to understand and fine code that are easy to change in, who needs documentation for this extension? does who dont understand it after 5 min should go and pay some one to administrate there site becuse they will never find a bether solution.
A BIG THANK YOU to the creator it made my site ;)
