    Congratulations! Looks very interesting.

    Would it work with BP 1.1.3? If not, what changes between 1.1.3 and 1.2 does it rely on?

    I will try myself as soon as I have time…

    Grossbuff. Could be interesting. fyi, the plugin link on the Wp plugin directory is a 404. Do you have a demo or a few screenshots?

    Setup instructions are interesting… requires you to create a sub blog.

    Will give this a go a little later.

    Hi Grosbouff, thank you. I auto-installed your plugin to test installation. Cannot activate plugin. Double-checked server, buddypress-classifieds folder is there but it is double-nested.

    Fixed double-nesting. Went to Plugins > Install. In addition to BuddyPress Classifieds Plugin, I also activated the new BuddyPress Classifieds Roles & Capabilities Plugin sitewide. But there is still a nag – “There is a new version of BuddyPress Classifieds Roles & Capabilities Plugin URI: http://dev.benoitgreant.be/2010/02/01/buddypress-classifieds …”

    Moved classifieds theme to my bp-1.2 child theme in wp-content/themes/mercime-bp12child/classifieds.

    Created new blog named bpclassified tests; set Privacy settings, set categories like Backpack, Tents, Shirts, Shorts, etc.

    In admin BuddyPress > Classified settings

    a. Options Page

    – input the blog ID of special classified ads blog

    – input days active

    – “If you want special tags (e.g. : propositions, offers) to sort your classifieds, put their ids here – comma-separated” – so I wrote some tags like : new, used, giveaway, red, blue, black

    – Checked option for Auto-suggest Tags

    b. Roles and Capabilities.

    – Very Nice.

    Question, there is no Site Admin or Admin Role there, so do I assume that Keymaster ala forums is for Site Admin, correct?

    c. System Reset – great add-on thanks.

    d.Support and Donate page – cool.

    So all settings saved. Went to front page and see that “Classifieds” is now part of the main navigation menu in 1.2 bp-default theme.

    ======= got to leave for a while, will be back later to continue with results of test =======

    @mercime :

    But there is still a nag

    Ok, it’s fixed. Weird :)

    Fixed double-nesting

    - This is fixed now

    If you want special tags[...] – so I wrote some tags like : new, used, giveaway, red, blue, black

    Those are tags you have to create in your data-blog and then put their “ids” in (eg:7,4)

    Checked option for Auto-suggest Tags

    Oops I forgot this option, but it’s not active yet.

    there is no Site Admin or Admin Role there, so do I assume that Keymaster ala forums is for Site Admin, correct?

    The roles are retrieven from your blog. I don’t understand your question very well but you should find the usual wordpress roules there

    Thanks for testing and review !

    ========== Continued ==========

    Using 1.2 bp-default theme. Based on roles set in classified settings page, I allowed contributors upward to post classified ads.

    Posting Classified Ads from BP frontend

    1. Clicked on Classifieds on Main Nav.

    2. In Classified Ads Directory Page – click on Create A Classified

    2.1 – Classified Details – page has fields for Title and Description, then click on “Create Classified and Continue

    2.2 – Classified Setttings – page has list of categories created per classified component instruction via special new blog and field box where you could add tags, and click on “Next Step”

    2.3 – Classified Invites – page where you can send invites to other members re classifieds, click on “Finish”

    Classified Ad Entry posted appears in Classified Ad Directory Page. The ad was also posted on the special new blog as post entry per my check. In addition, under member Profile Page, there’s now a link “My Classifieds” listing all entries posted in Classified Ads.

    Posted Classified Entry from Special Blog Created for the plugin component

    – Tested posting from the special blog to see if it appears in the BP-installed site. It Does.

    Also, when you post the listing from the special blog, the tags show up in the Classified Directory Page and in single Classified Ad Entry page

    Other Notes:

    1. Classified Ad Entries do not appear in Activity Streams of Member nor Home Page

    2. Site Admin should delete Hello World first post in new private blog set up for classifieds – if not configured to delete before

    3, Created Blog for Classifieds plugin Settings > Privacy was set to Block Google but allow online visitors – but the special blog is showing up in Blogs Directory even when Site Admin is logged out.

    4. Single page for a Classified Ad Entry – does not have navigation back to list of classifieds or have a “Reply” field box for possible interested clients.

    5. Categories chosen and Tags added during set up of Classified Ad Entry, are not showing up anywhere in Classified Directory Page or single page of the Classified Entry.

    6. Feature Request: ability to upload even a small single 150×150 image to go along with the classified ad entry.

    Great job, Grosbouff. Thank you for continuing development on this component. Really Cool.

    Great thing – Grosbouff! :-)

    I tried it in my testinstall and the following experiences I made:

    1. I couldn’t post a classified from the frontend – gave me a 400 error (could be, that it’s just me?!)

    2. Posted from backend (created a post in the blog)

    3. “All classifieds” in the directory says (0) – but there is one! All the other “tags” I created say (1) although I only posted it in one of them (“sachen”).

    4. The advanced search doesn’t really work correctly: When I try to filter, it just ignores my setting.

    5. When I click on a category-link underneath a classified – it jumps to the filtering, but shows nothing (although there for sure is one classified with that categorie

    6. The design in the advanced search seems a little messed up in FIrefox 3.6 (the gray menu stops in the middle of the page)

    7. The classified-activity doesn’t show up in the activity-stream. Not even, when I set the blog visible for everybody (also google)

    8.The menu in the single-classified-view is underneath the text. Is that on purpose? The “Start” is empty… (should there be something)

    So far my experienced “bugs” (if they are any…)

    Further comments:

    1. I like it very much!!! :-)

    2. Great idea with the ability to make tags dynamically showing up as tabs!

    3. In my opinion it would be crucial that classified activity shows up in the activity-stream (in BP1.2 that is THE central point!)

    4. The classifieds should have the possibility to react. I would recommend the same functions as any activity-item (comments, favorite) –>maybe that’s hard, because those are actually blogposts?

    5. Pictures are very important (as mercime said). It is important to have the possibility to add pictures!

    6. It should be translatable – but maybe that’s already in there, for your language is french :-). I would need german…

    Thanks for your great job so far! I am really looking forward to it, et je te dire: merci beaucoup!!!

    1. Classified Ad Entries do not appear in Activity Streams of Member nor Home Page

    ->Yes I have to fix this

    2. Site Admin should delete Hello World first post in new private blog set up for classifieds – if not configured to delete before

    ->Added to installation intructions

    3. Created Blog for Classifieds plugin Settings > Privacy was set to Block Google but allow online visitors – but the special blog is showing up in Blogs Directory even when Site Admin is logged out.

    ->BuddyPress bug ?

    4A. Single page for a Classified Ad Entry – does not have navigation back to list of classifieds

    ->Neither Single page for Groups have; I try to keep things like core components

    4B. or have a “Reply” field box for possible interested clients.

    ->I’m waiting that BP reintroduce the wire function

    5. Categories chosen and Tags added during set up of Classified Ad Entry, are not showing up anywhere in Classified Directory Page or single page of the Classified Entry.

    -> not ? Please upgrade to last version and don’t forget to update the theme directory

    6. Feature Request: ability to upload even a small single 150×150 image to go along with the classified ad entry.

    -> I’m waiting that BP handles pictures (galleries?) better

    @Michael Berra :

    Great thing – Grosbouff! :-)

    Thanks for your great job so far! I am really looking forward to it, et je te dire: merci beaucoup!!!

    Merci :)

    1. I couldn’t post a classified from the frontend – gave me a 400 error (could be, that it’s just me?!)

    Did you move the theme folder ? (please upgrade to last version before)

    3. “All classifieds” in the directory says (0) – but there is one! All the other “tags” I created say (1) although I only posted it in one of them (“sachen”).

    Yes, classifieds counts are not OK yet

    4. The advanced search doesn’t really work correctly: When I try to filter, it just ignores my setting.

    Does firebug tells something ?

    5. When I click on a category-link underneath a classified – it jumps to the filtering, but shows nothing (although there for sure is one classified with that categorie

    Still have that bug ? Working here

    7. The classified-activity doesn’t show up in the activity-stream. Not even, when I set the blog visible for everybody (also google)

    Yes I have to fix this

    8.The menu in the single-classified-view is underneath the text. Is that on purpose? The “Start” is empty… (should there be something)

    Yes,

    Waht do you mean by The “Start” ?

    3. In my opinion it would be crucial that classified activity shows up in the activity-stream (in BP1.2 that is THE central point!)

    4. The classifieds should have the possibility to react. I would recommend the same functions as any activity-item (comments, favorite) –>maybe that’s hard, because those are actually blogposts?

    5. Pictures are very important (as mercime said). It is important to have the possibility to add pictures!

    Yes I would like to add this too. When i’ll get time…

    6. It should be translatable – but maybe that’s already in there, for your language is french :-). I would need german…

    But it is :)

    ++added a Classifieds Tag Cloud widget

    ++added a Classifieds widget (not ajaxed yet)

    i just downloaded this… and i see:

    Move the directory buddypress-classifieds/theme/classifieds to wp-content/themes/your_current_theme.

    …. problem is that we do not have that directory in the release…

    Hi Grosbouff, thank you for all the update. As nexia mentioned above, the classifieds theme folder, css folder and js folder are not in the buddypress-classifieds 1.002 download. So does this mean we use the classifieds theme, css and js from buddypress-classifieds 1.0 beta download?

    Those are tags you have to create in your data-blog and then put their “ids” in (eg:7,4)

    My bad, read too fast and missed the last phrase :-) Thank you.

    The roles are retrieven from your blog. I don’t understand your question very well but you should find the usual wordpress roules there

    Thank you. Strange thing really, when I checked the roles for classified ads in my test install this morning – there was no Keymaster role, and I could have sworn it was there in the classified roles list last night :-)

    Looking at the Roles & Capabilities panel of Classifieds (cool tool), almost all capabilities are self-explanatory except that I am not familiar with “Republish my Classifieds” – what does this mean and how can this be done? I haven’t explored the plugin that thoroughly yet so may be missing something.

    Kudos Grosbouff for getting this plugin up and running with the bp 1.2 default theme.

    Thanks again.

    @nexia & @mercime : try to download again. It should be fixed (i’m not familiar with SVN…)

    @mercime : “Republish” means that you can “reset” the date of an unactive classified, like if you were copy/pasting it to a new classified.

    If you have a better phrase for this, I can change it !

    @Grosbouff,

    cool stuff, many thanks for this !

    Sorry if I have missed – do you have a demo-website to see this plugin in action ?

    Thanks again !

    bug reports:

    in theme/classified/classifieds-loop.php

    bp_ajax_querystring() does not exists in your plugin, so it breaks the engine… how did you get it to work without the function (this is a critic, not a question btw)?

    “BuddyPress Classifieds – Roles & Capabilities” was with a wrong version and try to update itself all the time…

    @nexia : there has been core modifications.

    Update to BuddyPress 1.2-beta REV 2608 and BuddyPress Classifieds 1.003-beta.

    —-

    Also, the theme is now included in the plugin, so you can remove the classifieds directory from your current theme.

    Cool, seems to work. Strangely I still cannot post a classified via frontend… hmmmm… tried it on two computers. When I check in the blog, it created some draft-posts… Any ideas?

    A totally different question. I would like to try a localization in german :-). Maybe just for me (pretty customized). BUT I never did this… How does my .mo file gets called in your plugin? Where do I have to put it? Thanks :-)

    the logic is to not use the blog but the interface… that’s why the blog is supposed to be set to private instead of public.

    PS: Your classifieds-plugin breaks on my install the ajaxed-navigation in BP… hmmm.

    Some other strange stuff: The title in the wordpress-repository is wrong “real names”…

    I think I wait, until xou think it is more or less stable…

    Hope it will work…
