I have some questions for the Classifieds plugin.

1. It seems that the categories and tags are mixed up. Whenever I put some tags in these words will show up behind the categories on the frontend.

2. On the main overview page (in my case expatclub.org/classified) I see that all classifieds by all members (I work with BuddyPress only) are put under each other. Is there a way to organise this a bit? I have 5 categories now, maybe the plugin includes a select mechanism for this? So for instance only "cars" will be shown. Or a tag search functionality.

3. I'm not sure whether the plugin includes any widget. It would be great to show the latest classifieds on the homepage or in a side bar on certain pages.

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Edgar

    Hey @Edgar,

    Hope you're doing well today :slight_smile:

    1. It seems that the categories and tags are mixed up. Whenever I put some tags in these words will show up behind the categories on the frontend.

    I see this happening on my end as well, I'm forwarding this issue to plugin developer so he can have a closer look at it.

    2. On the main overview page (in my case expatclub.org/classified) I see that all classifieds by all members (I work with BuddyPress only) are put under each other. Is there a way to organise this a bit? I have 5 categories now, maybe the plugin includes a select mechanism for this? So for instance only "cars" will be shown. Or a tag search functionality.

    Something like this is not possible within the Classifieds plugin but you should be able to make it work with plugin like this one:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/beautiful-taxonomy-filters/

    3. I'm not sure whether the plugin includes any widget. It would be great to show the latest classifieds on the homepage or in a side bar on certain pages.

    Same thing as above question, this should work as workaround though:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/ultimate-posts-widget/

    Let me move this thread to Features & Feedback section so developers can consider including those two options in future updates.

    Best regards,
    Predrag

    Thanks Predrag. Indeed it was a duplicate thread as I thought the first one didn't come through. Thanks also for your answers. I will forward it to my developers. I think both ideas would be great for future releases. When it comes to the select/search feature, I really like the "Filter bar" approach that Modern Tribe took with their plugin for The Events Calendar. Please look at http://www.expatclub.org/events. It's the right column. Something like this would be an easy and clear solution to make this plugin more attractive without additional plugins.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
