Feedback Wanted - Overhaul the Classifieds / Trading Post?
Posted 05 March 2012 - 06:29 PM
You can see a demo of it here: http://dev.millne.com/classifieds/
I'd like it if you all would take a look at the demo and give me your feedback here before I invest in a license of the software. The up-front cost is not prohibitive but it would require an investment of my time to get it all set up and tweaked for TGO. If you all would prefer that we keep things the way they are now, let me know.
One nice thing about this is that it integrates with the IPBoard mobile skin, so those of you surfing from iPhones and Android phones could still see the classified ads in a native format. Unfortunately I have no idea if it would work with, or how it would look on, Android phones if you use Tapatalk. So that's just something to keep in mind.

Seriously, it looks great. I say do it, provisionally. That is to say, if you want to. I doesn't really matter too much. It's very nice, but if you're out of pocket as well as time for doing it, is it worth your time?
I'd be happy to see it, but I wouldn't be upset if I didn't. 6.8AR is right, there's no problem with what we have.

I see they carry a timer much like Sleaze-bay and other auction type sites. Does that mean at the timers expiration the ad will close itself? If so, I would love to see the change. Nothing's anymore aggravating than seeing something for sale, only to open it and see *SPF* I do miss the old system where we had the option of locking our own threads. Courteous people could lock their for sale ads and when you see the lock you wouldn't bother clicking on it.

I really enjoy TGO. Thanks for doing such a great job and for caring enough to seek our input.

Very few actually closed their threads, though.

I have begun installing the Classifieds software and will be unveiling it in the next day or two. It really just depends on how much time I get to work on it today between other projects.
