    Hello. I’ve started to work on it since a few weeks.

    It starts to be interesting.

    *are things not started yet or **planed for a even more later

    TYPES & CATS

    -customizable types and categories, nestables

    **customizable fields for posting/showing classifieds in it

    MODERATION :

    -decide wether or not to allow public viewers

    -decide wether or classifieds needs validation before being published

    -*grant a user moderator for all classifieds or by type / category

    SITE VIEW

    -search, explore, filter (by categories, days, **custom fields)

    MEMBER VIEW

    -show my published classifieds

    -show my- awaiting moderation [author/moderators only]

    -show my unactive

    -watched : when you click a button on a classified, it will be in your profile and you’ll be notified if someone posted a on the wire or if the author modify it +*watched types & cats

    -single classified : see details, author, see & post on the wire, see watchers

    MEMBER OPTIONS

    -*email notifications for new classifieds, classifieds by type,category

    -*email for new posts on wire (watched classifieds)

    -**email for new classifieds of friends

    -*filters for home page

    POSTING

    - user needs to agree terms & conditions (only once) before posting

    -fields : title, description, type, category

    -****customizable fields

    -****photos

    -enable wire

    -*enable email notifications when editing (for watchers)

    …maybe i’ll start with this :)

    I also have to say that it is a huuuge work and I’ll probably open a project page with a PAYPAL button to encourage me (need it).

    I’m not a professional coder but i’m trying to do the best possible.

    Today i’ve almost finished the admin part.

    Proud to say that I’ve find something to dynamically (jQuery) add types/cats and edit,order (nested!!),delete,save them. It works !!!

    The plugin is looking good. Will there be widgets that allow showing certain classifieds in other parts of the community?

    Also, just wondering how different you plan to make it from other classifieds plugins (I believe some other members have succeeded in implementing ‘another classifieds plugin ‘ to their BP installs)

    I dont’t know which features I’ll eventually add…

    As said above, I’m not a professional coder and it is a challenge for me to finish this as it is :)

    But it’s true, it’s a good idea. I’ll see later.

    No widgets planned for the moment (only maybe things like last/random classifieds) and plan to make it different from the others as it is completely build on BuddyPress, with its code & features (notifications, member screens vs site screens, etc).

    It will not be a WPMU plugin but a BuddyPress component…

    I added a “share this” feature using the Add-to-any plugin which seems to be a quite good plugin.

    So if that plugin is enabled, you’ll be able to check an option in the admin to show or not the share button.

    Why not enable or integrate an existing rating plugin (Wp-Postratings/GD Star Rating)?

    @Ralfsohl

    I plan to finish it in about one month, maybe 2.

    Now almost all the big things have been done (creation, moderation, admin, display…); the big things that left are notifications and the navigation system (I mean, searches, filters; browsing…)

    Then I’ll have to debug it; test it again and again, and between all that take some vacations :)

    @Gp01

    I don’t think I’ll add a rating feature in it; I’ll try to keep it rather simple and I don’t see the point to “rate” a classified…

    the “watching” part has been implated :

    -”add to / remove from watched list” works (also with ajax).

    -”list watchers”

    @grosbouff

    A little look at what we’ve got so far…

    Actions for each classifieds runs with ajax which means you don’t need to go on the single classified page each time you have to do something (reset date, delete, publish or add to watched list)

    I’ll try to adapt bpPicture Album component by Manoj Kumar to add pictures to a classified.

    hi Grosbouff,

    thanks for the update.

    I’ll keep sending you PMs’ to see if we can be of any help :-D

    ciao

    Grosbouff,

    Looks like you have got a lot of the main components online. Can you give us an approximate ETA for the initial release?

    Also, I can help test out the plugin when you are ready.

    If I have some time to work on it until september, I guess it will be ready to test at the beginning of that month.

    Hi, i’m still working on this.

    Big steps have been made but there’s still work.

    I think i’ll not implent a complex moderation system for the first release; only admin & authors will be able to edit/delete the classifieds.

    I changed some stuff to make the plugin ‘extensionnable’; eg. for pictures (done) and google maps (working on); then your contributions :).

    So steps for the creation / display can be

    -core steps

    -plugins steps

    steps can be optionnable and orderable in the admin panel.

    Hope i’ll give you some more news soon !
