Almond Classifieds Component for Joomla!(1.5, 1.6) includeds the following features: users can submit ads with photos; Admin. can create as many ads categories as it is needed. For each category the set of ad fields (such as price, city, age, area, etc.) can be specified in different formats such as "text", "textarea", "select", "checkbox". Optionally verification code can be applied to prevent using automated spamming programs.Admin can delete the list of spam ads using search by spam keywords, spammers e-mails or IP addresses.
Javascript checking ads submitting form before sending to the server. Privacy Mail, which hides the e-mail addresses.

Functionality
Free version is too limited defining different fields for different ad types.
Ease of use
No too difficult.
Support
While others praise support, I was unable to get help.
Documentation
Typically minimal.Developer's website offers no documentation, forums, etc.
I used this to: Doesn't meet my needs. The most frustrating things is once I decided this wasn't the package for me I couldn't figure out how to uninstall it. Multiple emails to support have gone unanswered.
I highly recommend the Almond Classified it is great product and not only that but he give me a great help after installed. fast and helpful answers always. Believe me a great product.
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!

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!

Ultimate Edition review



Posted on 21 April 2013
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.

Great Component

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.

Top notch

I did this script for my site internationaladvertiser.com/adsnet 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!

Very Good Extension

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 Almondsoft.com 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.
