I'm looking for a simple and stable script to run a classified ads site. Is vanilla good for it?

    Thanks for the eail Bend.

    We wont be doing a classified ads theme albeit ironically we are currently developing our own classifieds advertising website.

    Have you checked out phpmyads i think its called.

  • I haven't heard of phpmyads... trying to google it but it seems that the script is too old or something because I cannot find a working demo of it.

    May I ask if you guys start creating your own system from scratch or base on some scripts? Perhaps you can release it to the world when it's done...sniff sniff :)

    If you are interested in a such a plugin maybe you could sponsor someone like myself, rather than just expecting the OS Community just to serve you, without contribution.

    grep is your friend.

  • I think OS community is for everyone especially broke a55 students like me. OS is awesome because people are contributing their skills, knowledges or money. I sadly have none of those but it doesn't mean that I will run once I have collected some money.

    Attitude is something but Gratitude is everything. ;)

    great

    There are some solutions out there, if you search. vanilla isn't really one of them

    I know people like the forum format form pretty much anything, but best bet is always go for the closest thing to what you want.

    grep is your friend.

    We always create our own systems, takes longer but we get exact functionality we need.

    Perhaps look at themeforest or codecanyon.

    Our site wont be a reseller system, its a one off. Found at kajoo.com.au currently underwraps

  • I have checked them and didn't like the design much.. Back then when I still have some money and I bought Classipress (http://demos.appthemes.com/?theme=classipress). I like Classipress but they don't have an option where guest/unregistered users can post ads.

    I find that when starting a new classified ad site.. it's very hard to get users signing up to be able to post ads. It would be much better to have an open door for them.

    Thats nice. Its never a good idea in my opinion to allow guests to post annonymously. But I am sure if thats ur thing there is a work around

    Slider needs sorting. Keeps refreshing and sliding from right to left in continuous loop.

    The $ issue can be solved using jquery.

    var temp = '';
            function disableTxt() {
                var field = document.getElementById("price");
                if(field.value != '') {
                    temp = field.value;
                }
                field.style.display = "none";
                field.value = '';
            }
            function enableTxt() {
                document.getElementById("price").style.display = "block";
                document.getElementById("price").value = temp;
            }
            $('#price').change(function() {
                $(this).val($(this).val().match(/\d*\.?\d+/));
        });

    ah its actually supposed to loop perfectly if it reaches the minimum 5 items. maybe stopping the auto scroll while the items are still less than 5 will help solve the confusion. as for the $... what do you mean? are you entering a "$" in the price field? should not be as it is pure decimal data type... hmm... ok i think adding another field for the currency will be a good idea.

    Thanks for testing @422

    The script above sanitises the input element as user types price, removes every symbol apart from .
