Questions about Adsmanager before upgrade

4 years 7 months ago #22003 by tvong
Hello,

We are interested in Adsmanager, but had a few questions before making a decision.

We had tried the free version and here are our questions:

1) Is it possible to customize the "Create a Post" section so that it's a button or change the way it looks such as color or even just a hyperlink without the title as it appears now?
2) Is I possible to change how the basic search is working? We want to be able to add the City and State and Categories.
3) Is it possible to make the advance search be more of a drop down list on the same page without being redirected to a new page?
4) Can users leave comments for ads and give ratings? Is it possible to restrict only those who actually completed the transaction with the ad be the one to leave a feedback?
5) Can we hide the contact info from users unless they decided to send the ad poster an email?
6) Can we customize the "add an ad" page? Such larger font size, color and even layout?
7) Can the ads be approved by an admin before it goes live to the website?

So far that's the questions we have. Please let us know as soon as you can as we are trying to make a decision as to what Joomla Classified Ad extension to purchase.

1) Is it possible to customize the "Create a Post" section so that it's a button or change the way it looks such as color or even just a hyperlink without the title as it appears now?

==> I am not sure to understand what you are talking about, do you have a screenshot about that ?

2) Is I possible to change how the basic search is working? We want to be able to add the City and State and Categories.
You can add several fields in the search module. and more with advanced search module.

3) Is it possible to make the advance search be more of a drop down list on the same page without being redirected to a new page?

=> sorry I didn't understand. You mean the link advanced search on list page ?
In fact you can display the advanced search module next to the list. So it's on the same page.
and in the advanced search module you can have simple search then a link to "expand" (dropdown?) with more filters.
see here: demo.joomprod.com/adsclarity/adsmanager-list

4) Can users leave comments for ads and give ratings? Is it possible to restrict only those who actually completed the transaction with the ad be the one to leave a feedback?
=> Comments with joomla extensions like JComments, We don't have knownledge of transactions (it's between the users) so this is not possible.

5) Can we hide the contact info from users unless they decided to send the ad poster an email?
=> How they can decide to send an email => they must receive a notification => like some is interessed ? => Custom dev.

6) Can we customize the "add an ad" page? Such larger font size, color and even layout?
=> If you know CSS, yes you can change all that.

7) Can the ads be approved by an admin before it goes live to the website?
> Yes

Hi juloaadmin,

Thanks for the reply, here are answers to your follow-up questions.

1) Right now, the "Create a post" functionality act as a hyperlink and is stored within a box on the page. This is not very pretty, so I was wondering if we could change the way it looks and make it like perhaps a button and take away the box which has the label "Create a Post"? I'm assuming this would be an edit in the .css file, is there much more?

3) The advance search currently takes me to another page which requires the user to enter multiple search criteria. What we really want is NOT to redirect to a new page, but perform the advance search on the same page, and the behavior would be like what you have on the Advance Search page you sent over, but on the MORE FILTER button. So instead of it being labeled Advance Search, it would be Search and then you click a button below that Search section and it expands like how the MORE Filter button is doing for the advance search you sent me. All done on one page.

4) Could we create a button for perhaps auction and then if they both click on complete and then that triggers a flag that says that person can leave a comment?

Here's a few more questions that would help us decide on the purchase.

How flexible is AdsManager in terms of features? We want to manage user groups since we want to create a standard user group, premium user group which have restrictions on what they can do for their ad listing.

1) standard user group to be able to upload only 1 image and the premium user to be able to upload 5 images?

2) 15 days ad expiration, 30 day expiration option available depending on what group the user belongs to

3) where is time being stored? I couldn't find a field for adsmanager for what time the ad was created, only the date is found. Is it possible to also display how long it's been since the ad was created? For example, the display would be something like "3 hours ago"

4) Can we make the search based on location (city and state?) - how?

5) How can we display the ads listing based on user location? The location would come from the user registration info. I don't want the "Latest Ads" to be based on everyone who created an ad, only ads that are relevant to the user.

1. you mean : "Let's Make Money ! Sell your unused goods in 5 minutes." This box ? on the demo website. It's just a custom module with some HTML code that redirect to the post ad, you are free to add button, menu what you want to redirect to post ad (it's just joomla stuff)

3) Ok so why don't use the advanced search module I told you on : demo.joomprod.com/adsclarity/adsmanager-list

4) You have to create city and state field (using casaade field better to filter city based on state) then use these fields as search fields.

5) There is no option for that, as there is no location is the user registration info in Joomla. You can do this with some custom code. but this is not part of adsmanager.

Thanks! Where is time being stored? I couldn't find a field for adsmanager for what time the ad was created, only the date is found. Is it possible to also display how long it's been since the ad was created? For example, the display would be something like "3 hours ago"

Also - i created a custom field and I cannot find it when i try to add it to the Layout Content Form.

the date is not a field, but internal db column.
created_date is the column you want
like $content->date_created

You will have to do some PHP code to customize the display of this date. (if you want to display 3 hours ago).
Time to create page: 0.231 seconds
