Latest new features added in PHP Classified Ads
Change the format of the search results - switch between grid and list viewThis new feature allows the users to easily switch between list view and grid view of the search results.
Their choice is remembered, so when they open the next page with results, it will open directly in their preferred format.
More flexible pricing plansThe administrator can now create different ads posting pricing plans and set the pricing depending on the ad category, the number of days in which the ad will expire, maximum number of allowed pictures and featured or regular status.
This offers great flexibility to create different free and paid pricing plans and charge the users for featured ads.
New search formThe new form allows quick and easy search by keyword, listing category or location. The categories and location list menus are also searchable.
Facebook login featureThis new feature allows the users to login directly with their facebook account and skip the registration.
Email alertsThe users can create email alerts and be notified by email when new listing meeting their search criteria is posted on the website.
New tabbed listing details page designThe information on the listing details page is now split in four different tabs - Details (showing the description, custom fields and information and brief contact information), Images (with the additional images uploaded by the users), Location (showing the location and Google Map, if the user has added one for his listing), Share (allowing to share the listing on the social networks and form for recommenging it to a friend by sending an email)
Share a listing and recommend it to a friendThis new form allows the users to recommend the listing to a friend, by sending him an email with the ad title and details link.
Our latest admin panelVersion 4.1 of PHP Classified Ads comes now with our latest and user friendly admin panel.
Like the front site, its layout is also responsive - helping the administrator to manage the website also from smartphone or tablet.
Functionality to set the pricing separately for the different categoriesWith this new functionality the administrator can set separately (if he prefers so) the pricing for posting an ad in the different categories.
For example posting an ad in the Buy&Sell category may cost $5, while posting a new classified ad in the Jobs category may cost $15 etc.
When creating a new package the administrator can specify for which category this package should be available - if he doesn't select any value, then the package will be available for all the categories.
XML Search APIThe XML Search API allows to search by certain predefined parameters and returns the information about the listings meeting the search criteria in XML format.
The XML API makes easier the integration of the classified website with other website or software applications (including standalone applications and such for mobile devices).
Refine search menuThe new refine search menu allows to filter the results by searching by any of the custom fields defined for the selected category (it shows up only if there are custom fields defined for the category).
New users dashboard and admin panelThe new users admin panel and dashboard makes easier for the users to manage their profile and ads, post new classified ads or banners.
Custom fields for the sub categories and fields inheritanceExcept just for the main categories like in the previous versions, the new improved custom fields management functionality allows to define also custom fields for the sub categories.
When a sub category is selected, it shows its custom fields and the ones of its parent categories (fields inheritance).
Banner areas & banners managementThis new functionality allows the administrator to create different banner areas (which can differ on their position, banner size and price for placing a banner) and let the users upload banners in them for a fee.
Sharing the ads on Facebook, Twitter and Google+The listing details pages now include buttons for sharing easily the classified on Facebook, Twitter and Google+
New feature for log in and registration of the usersThe users on the website now have the choice if they would like to sign up (and be able to post and manage their ads from the new users admin panel) or post an ad as guests, with no registration.
If necessary, the website can be set to require registration for all users or no registration at all (according to the administrator / website owner preferences).
Android applications (customized applications on Google Play Store)The PHP Classified Ads android application (not included in the standard package) allow users to install it on their Android device and browse and search the classified ads directly from their Android phone or tablet.
The application can be customized with your brand colors and logo and we can help publish it on Google Play Store.
