User based Classifieds site

Is it possible to create a user generated classifieds site using marketpress or classifieds?

I had a phpprobid site which was hacked and rather than return to an auction based site I was hoping to relaunch with a classifieds site.

I want to use the old db to recreate all the old users in the new classifieds site but due to the fact it was hacked I don;t want to use anything other than the username and emails to rebuild the site.

Is this possible?

If so how?

    Hi there @Race Media

    I hope you are well today.

    I would recommend Classifieds for what you want to do,

    It’s a very powerful plugin, Use BuddyPress as well, and then on your users profile they will get a tab “my classifieds” where they can see their published classified and add new ones, you then can a link to the classifieds page where all the classifieds from all your users will be shown. You don’t have to use BuddyPress though, Classifieds does work perfectly without it as well.

    With regards to the database, you’ll need to export the data you want then import it into the correct database fields in WordPress, just take extreme caution when taking data from a hacked a database, I would personally recommend you create them manually, check out our Add new users plugin

    Thank you!

    Kind Regards
