Installazione

Pre-installation note: If you have previously tried other WordPress classified plugins and you plan to give the classifieds page created by Another WordPress Classifieds Plugin the same name as previously used with other classifieds plugins you’ve installed, please make sure your database has been cleared of any entries in the wp_posts table where the post_name value and the post_title value are the same as the name you plan to give your classifieds page.
For example, if your classifieds page will be named “Classifieds”, you might have a wp_posts database entry post_title value of “Classifieds” and post_name value of “classifieds” still left over from previous installations of other classifieds plugins.
You need to check your database to make sure data from your previous classifieds plugins does not still exist. Specifically, you need to delete all entries from your wp_posts table where the post_title and post_name values are the same as what you plan to name your classifieds page.

  1. Upload the folder another-wordpress-classifieds-plugin with its contents to wp-content/plugins/
  2. Attiva il plugin
  3. Click on the “Click here to setup your site options” link and fill out all your various options to configure how you want your classifieds to run.
  4. After you have setup your options you should create some categories and sub categories for your classifieds
  5. After you have created your categories you should setup your payment fees if you are going to be running in pay mode.

Your classifieds should now be ready and working.

Our classifieds website builder software combined with our add-on modules is the most powerful classifieds plugin on the market. The options for classified advertising are limitless. Here are a few types of classified directories you can create:

  • Job board listings and help wanted
  • Auto, truck, and car listings
  • Apartment classifieds
  • Property and real estate listings

Can AWPCP support paid and free listings?

Yes it can. You can do this by creating fee plans for 0.00 and some other paid amount at the same time. For more details, read this article.

Will AWPCP work with my theme?

AWPCP (Another WordPress Classifieds Plugin) will work with any well-written, WP compliant theme. Generally speaking, paid themes tend to be higher quality than free ones.

In general, we like WooThemes as a solid company with great products and support. You can check them out here Or StudioPress

Can AWPCP be translated into my language?

Yes it can. AWPCP comes with many user-provided translations under the /languages folder. For details on how to do it, our translation guide will help get you started.

Is AWPCP compatible with WordPress Multisite (WPMU)?

Yes it is. However, you cannot “network-activate” the plugin (as this will share the database). Activate it on only the subsites on which you need a directory. This can be done under Plugins->Add New as the Administrator user. Do not “network activate” AWPCP as the “super admin”.

It`s very nice, but with 2-3 little Bugs and the pricing is to much for our projects .. maybe next year, with more customers and money. best regards MC CONNECT GERMANY Manfred
23 Settembre 2020
I could not praise the developers of this plugin more. Due to a clash with another plugin they helped me to diagnose the issue and resolve it very quickly. They went out of their way and over and above what I would have normally expected. Thank you so much. The plugin works a treat and I will hope to use it again sometime on future projects. I would highly recommend this plugin.

Been using the classifieds with most of the additional plugins. Had a difficult bug with the region plugin and the developers worked hard to find and fix, Very pleased with their level of customer service and support.
13 Maggio 2020
This plugin has so much potential, but is overloaded with little things that cannot be changed or things that just do not work. You can't even edit your ads without getting an act of congress passed and get Ad Keys. What the heck are ad keys? You can't just let the person that created the ad edit the ad??? Ad Management Panel you say? If anyone ever finds it...please let me know because it is non-existent for me. Can't find it anywhere.

I went through about 3 other classifieds site plugins before arriving upon this one. By far, the simplest and stablest platform. One classifieds plugin I tried to use was simply too complex and would have taken me months to setup. Another brand of plugin would crash my site too many times. Yet another one didn't have the features I needed. So give this plugin a try--speaking from experience trying some other brands. I did customize a few things using some Custom CSS code which has been relatively painless thus far. Their code is pretty well documented. I had one support ticket, and the developers were very responsive and also thorough in resolving my issue. So the other good reviews people have made are well-warranted. Hopefully I can utilize this platform for a good long while to come. So far, I am satisfied with this product. If any issues come up in the future, I think that the helpful support will be responsive and timely, which gives me a level of comfort as compared with other packages I've used in the past that have given me some grief.
