Yes, I did all of them. I use sendnotice and customized the admin panel.
But, sold ads are definetly not shown in the showcat view for the 2 day I've choosen. They just disappear at once (when they marked as sold).
If I use your suggestion from this thread, the ads appear in the list but do not get approved state 2 until they expire by date.
Therefore my question: What do I have to do in order to keep the sold ads for a couple of days in the overview lists.
