Classifieds System

Recommended Posts

Could you add the ability to allow guests to access the listing creation form to create their listing then when they hit submit be prompted to register their account/pay the package cost before their listing is submitted. Similar to how guests can post in threads right now. 

Would this be possible @InvisionHQ ?

It would dramatically increase conversion rates from guest to selling customer.


As of right now on my setup I have it where people have to purchase a commerce product to upgrade their account to a VIP group which then lets them post listings. Right now the visitor from the landing page has to go to the sales page where they select a subscription then to the commerce product where they add it to their cart, purchase and register then they have to find their way to the classifieds page again to list their item.

If there was a way you could simplify this process dramatically by allowing the guest to access the list item page where they can fill it in, hit submit and be promoted to choose the commerce package and pay/register to have their listing show up that'd be great. FYI I would use the existing 'Packages' feature built into classifieds, but it doesn't allow for recurring subscriptions :( or user upgrades.

Or if that's not possible, have a popup that says "login or create an account to continue" then take them through the registration form and once they are done, redirect them back to the advert creation form where they were trying to list their item.

I can try to find a way to add a popup, all other things are related to Commerce app and I suggest you to ask to IPS to add a new feature for guests.

What is "member store"?

and after its activated in admincp...how use it on front end

Member store is a page with all adverts of the user, like eBay store, amazon store... after you activate it in ACP

every user can set a store name in the user profile settings.

The listing creation page is tied to commerce? Really? That's a bummer. Are you sure there's no way you could open up the listing creation page to guests (if allowed in their permissions) and when they click submit, save their listing details via a cookie or something - redirect them to registration then when they register and go back to the listing creation page the info they entered as a guest is saved?

I'm still having issues with expired adverts, I've set expired adverts to be moved after 5 days. However some are still there?
For instance, one of my adverts has a starting date of July 26, 2017 so that means that 60 days (I've set adverts to 60 days) later would be September 24, 2017. But the advert hasn't moved?

When promoting an advert, an image is not chosen in the Promote window. Please consider to add this the same way forum topics, articles or blog entries get the images from the content. In this case we even have a mandatory field for image to upload. But this image is not suggested in the Promote dialog.

Thank you!

This is really strange. 

As a user without admin rights, I clicked Buy Now for a product, but then didn't go through the entire purchase process. The advert / item was then listed in my Orders section as Pending. I clicked Cancel Invoice, and the advert was deleted. 

Is this a bug? Potential buyers shouldn't be able to delete an advert just because they don't finish a transaction.

Hi - We love the app, but would like to rename the word Classifieds to something else. Is this possible?

I saw it mentioned earlier, but couldn't figure out how it may have been done.

You need to customise classifieds url from the ACP (customise friendly url)

Look:

Need to check tasks, can you send me a PM with ACP access?

Yes, you deleted advert when cancel the invoice.

I'm checking into this to look a better way to manage this situation.

@InvisionHQ is there a way of alerting staff (admin & mods group) of an advert pending approval? Something like either PM alert, or a notification bubble on the Classifieds menu button - or perhaps an email option?

Also, in the mobile responsive view there is no approval button. Presumably, 'unhide' is the same as approve?

Many Thanks

Let me explain what happened now if you work on INVOICE with 1.1.6:

1. CANCEL INVOICE / UNPAID INVOCE / EXPIRED INVOICE

Advert not deleted - Advert not more on pending status - Advert stocks recovery

2. DELETE INVOCE

Delete the advert

 

P.S.

Probably this will be the latest maintenance release, if all is well I would like to start working soon on a major release (1.2) that will bring new features.

Member store is a page with all adverts of the user, like eBay store, amazon store... after you activate it in ACP

every user can set a store name in the user profile settings.

suggestion #1

change the settings for the member store to the same section as the 'default'

in its current location you can not give a link to members to explain to them how to startup and/or  rename their store

eg move it from the edit profile 'members store' tab into here

https://www.forumname/settings/classifiedsaddress/

suggestion #2

Add a 'classifieds' tab profile section

has to be a useful 'discovery aid - list of members classifieds ads via their profile page - also could have store link ?

I have my classifieds set to prune expired adverts by deleting them after 5 days (the minimum allowed)

image.png.29f9056baf8199dd41231a574daf8e2f.png

But 7 days after the advert has expired, both the advert and the topic associated with it are still being displayed.
Can you advise how to fix this please?

my main site has been getting random error 500 lock ups

when it happens I need to copy the theme and then switch to the copied theme to resolve

php reports
PHP Fatal error:  Class 'IPS\Theme\Cache\class_core_front_forms' not found 

as think 'class_core_front_forms'  is a classifieds  call (hooks.json)  then maybe this crashing is related to this app?

has anyone else had such issues?

Classifieds have an hook on class_core_front_forms (Messenger Popup)

But this is the first time that I see this error, no one reported before.

Have you a step by step description to replicate this issue?
