…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 !!!

@grosbouff: The admin backend looks good so far. Let us know when you are ready to release!!
further developpement will be announced here :
Some news :
-user settings [admin/member]
–accepts terms & conditions
–save filters for home (days, types, categories)
–admin (give moderation rights for all,some types or some categories)
-navigation is finished (still some debugging)
–member navigation (loop is working)
—awaiting moderation (if needed) [admin/member]
—unactive (x days old)
–directory navigation (loop is working)
—*retrieve member filters
—*retrieve moderation info
–show single classified
–wire (still some debugging)
–added tags (with suggestions)
the next two big thing (among others) will be handling notifications and adding custom fields.
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…
Why not enable or integrate an existing rating plugin (Wp-Postratings/GD Star Rating)?
hello Grosbouff >> when do you think the plugin will be up for download?
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
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).
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.
thanks for the update.
I’ll keep sending you PMs’ to see if we can be of any help
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.
Estimated Time of Arrival
Just eager to try out your plugin.
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
steps can be optionnable and orderable in the admin panel.
Hope i’ll give you some more news soon !
