    I’ve been thinking about a Classifieds plugin for Buddypress and I thought a good place to start would be with a Photoshop mockup of how it might work, so I made one and posted it here:

    @N03/sets/72157615860642132/detail/” rel=”nofollow”>http://www.flickr.com/photos/28730426@N03/sets/72157615860642132/detail/

    I decided to only use For Sale, Housing and Help Wanted ads and excluded Personals, Announcements and a Service Directory, because I think there are better ways to handle those. (I have an idea about a Pro Account/Business Directory combo plugin, if anyone’s interested I’ll draw it up)

    I lifted most of the categories and copy text from Craigslist. Oopsy.

    I’m new to WordPress and my PHP abilities suck, so if anybody wants to tackle this then by all means go for it. Sell it, give it away, whatever, if you want it, it’s yours. I just hope this helps to get something like this made, because if I have to code it, it might take years.

    Opinions wanted!

    I also think that a classified plugin should be a priority !

    Yours seems perfect !!!

    I’ve added “Another-Wordpress-classifieds-plugin”

    http://www.awpcp.com/

    to my BP install, which works very well. I modified the plugin to only allow logged in users to post to the classifieds.

    I think this plugin would be a great place to start. it seems like it could be easily modified to match your screenshots.

    maybe the classifieds plugin could echo back the user’s data on their profile based on the email address they created the ad with. if that could be accomplished, I would then “lock down” the email address they enter in the ad to be the email address attached to their account (right now the user can enter any email)

    No news. I think we should take up a collection and hire somebody. I know a reliable PHP guy from Rentacoder.com who’s done a few projects for me. I’ll send him a bid request and see what this would cost, and if he’s interested.

    Then I guess I’ll set up a paypal fund and see if we can raise the money (because I’m strapped).

    Think it will work?
