Yup, strange huh. Seems like it would have made more sense to have another option - such as MAX ADS AT A TIME - and use whichever one is best for your situation.
The purpose of allowing a regular (free) member on my site to have 1 or 2 ads at a time is to let them see the value of the classified section and maybe then become a paid member of the site so that they can post unlimited ads. Maybe this is not important for websites that do not create any or much revenue and maybe it was the admins of the non-money making websites that voted for the way it is now, I dunno.
The way it is now there is not much difference between the classified module that comes with vBPortal other then the auction function and highlighting options.
This is an awesome bit of software but it just seems to be crippled without that function.
I, and think many others here, buy software because we have no or limited coding knowledge, or are too lazy to code it for ourselves.
Chuck it just seems to me that it would have been better the other way. PP Classifieds is crippled the way it is now IMHO. I am gonna continue to use it because it is really a awesome program but it would be great to see this feature in the next version.
Another great feature would be, if we were able to get the MAX ADS AT A TIME option, to allow users who have reached either the MAX AD SETTING or MAX ADS AT A TIME to be able to purchase additional ads.
I.E. Say I set my MAX AD SETTING (for non-paying website members) to 1. After they have created their one and only ad for life they would be able to purchase more ad space for whatever price I have determined.
Or if the non-paying website member has reached his or her MAX ADS AT A TIME they would be able to purchase more ads to run at the same time. I.E. MAX ADS AT A TIME set to 2, member wants 3 ads to run so they purchase the third ad.
What do you think?
