- show this fields in the listingsrow?

Many thanx in advance!

In list.php there is this new section with additional fields. You shouldn't have many problems finding it. Then you will need to change it the following way:
Old code (only fragment!):
PHP Formatted Code
echo "    <tr><td><input type=\"text\" name=\"name00\" value=\"Type:\" size=\"30\"></td><td><input type=\"text\" name=\"value00\" value=\"Value\" size=\"30\"></td></tr>\n";
 

Into something like this:
PHP Formatted Code
echo "    <tr><td>Price:</td><td><input type=\"text\" name=\"value00\" value=\"Value\" size=\"30\"></td></tr>\n";
 

And repeat for all remaining lines.

Not sure what you mean by that.

When you go to one of the categories you'get a list of the adds in that category. Shown are now: Subject, Added on, Photo, Detail.

I also want to show a few from the new fields as well, example:

Subject, Added on, Photo, Price, Weight, Detail.

Have a look at Noah's Classifieds as a nice example, that offers lots of options for new fields and how they look (dropdown/textfield etc).

You can download that for free at http://www.phpoutsourcing.com

Thnx for all the efforts!

That was me, I tried to use it with the External Pages plugin but got a cookie problem, so now I adapted the Noah's template to GL. Wanted to use another user database anyway for the classifieds.

Good news Exclamation I've managed to implement definition of customized fields per category. Hopefully next RC will be available by the end of this week


Your my hero..... I'm back next tuesday and am really looking forward to it..!

Robin,

I'm pleased to see that you've picked up thus plugin and supporting it

I've not used it before but may have a need now. Does the plugin allow me to setup more then 1 ad block on my site (header, side, footer) and manage what ads show in eack block - maybe by size of ad or type?

I know, it was for one of my own projects. The script already has an option to wrap a header and footer around it. And the license allows using it in a commercial project so that should be OK.

But thanks for warning me anyway, Blaine.

Robin, ignore this question. I saw "ads" and was thinking banner ads but I just looked at the plugin and understand now it's about setting up classified ads - hense the name . I just had banner ads on my mind at the time.

One sugggestion: I see the plugin is actually called advt when it installs and zClassifieds is the marketing name. Your archive had a very non-standard setup and will be confusing to users that finally figure out the way other plugins are setup.

Name your archive piname_piversion_glversion as in advt_1.0.1_1.3.11 and then we can tell the plugin version and GL release it was developed under. Creating the archive with the standard directory structure since there is no readme or directions it may not confuse the novice.

Yeap, my bad With this RC's I neglected a little bit the archive structure (I'll shape up )
I believe that in the original/first release everything was just about right.
Thanks for your feedback

Hi Robin

Thanks for your work on this plugin. Re:RC2 It seems to work OK. It is easy to install. The new mods for the extra descriptions is good.

The only delema I have with the plugin is that the ads get posted without being approved. Which could have alot of problems depending on the descretion of the users. I know I have mentioned this in a previous post and you said you are looking into this for your next RC. That will be good.

I am in Australia and I know I have to be very careful, for legal reasons, what I allow on my site, especially if I use this zClassified plugin. If admin has approval rights over the 'list an ad' function, this will allow this form to be used more as a listing application rather than allowing the user to list the ad straight away. Listing an ad without approval will make it alot harder for admins to monitor ads(depending on site usage).
Suggestion: if Admin has the option to use an approval list or not, as I realise some admins don't want the extra work or find this unecessary for their site. This will also allow Admins to limit the number of ads a user posts at anyone time if necessary, and also allow Admins to wait for payment for ads before posting them(as asked in a previous post by newblogger and myself) without having to create a group for Premium users.

Thanks again and looking forward to the next RC.

Regards

Kev

The submission functionality is on top of my to do list. As soon as I polish the additional info fields I will take a look at the submission/approval functionality for admin.

I should have known that haste makes waste I forgot to include this bit in the RC3. Please add the following to your style.css (it will make zClasssified a little preetier )
PHP Formatted Code
/* zClassified Ads css section */
TR.frame
{
        background: url( ./framebg.gif );
    background-color: #006699;
        font-weight: bold;
    color: #FFFFFF
}
.detail
{
        background-color: #E6E6E6;
}

/*Formatting of headers and messages e.g. Recent Added etc.*/
p.headmsg
{
        font-weight: bold;
        color: black;
        text-align: center;
}

Hi Robin, RC4 looks and works a lot better then the earlier versions, thnx!.

The directories are stil not correct and confusing for newbies.

Had a problem with the thumbs, so changed ImageCreate in ImageCreateTrueColor (in functions.inc).

Robin, how do I get rid of the approval process? Shouldn't that be an option to set in config.php?

The additional fields are great BTW, but how can I display one of the in the adds list (recent added classifieds)?
