View Full Version : Length of time ad runs
May 28th, 2007, 08:53 AM
How do I chnage the length of time an ad can run? I submited a few for testing and they were at the default 15 days. How would I make these say non-expiring?
Also how would I change the email address from the submitter (myself) to say the owner of the site for PayPal payment?

You set how long an ad runs for when you upload the ad. You change the email in your forum or classifieds user profile as thats where the user email is taken from

The problem is my I admin a site for someone. I configure/setup all ads in this case. Unfortunatly I now have to point the ads to his PayPal account. Is there not a way I can do this? Even if I have to manualy modify the database?
I know my I use multiple email addresses myself. Would it not possible to in the future have a field to enter a PayPal address if the one used to register was not used for PayPal?
Also still trying to figure out how to change the length of time the ad can run after it has been set... IS this stored int eh DB? Again I could always manulay chnage it if I had to and was the only way.

You can not change the time after it is set unless of course your manually changing the unixtimestamp in the database
If you post ads for him you need to change the owner of the ads to him and there is a change owner box on edit to change the owner

I must be blind...
I go to "edit ad" but there is no place to define a new user.
Also I changed the ad to reflect "Allow Users to Buy your Ad via Paypal Immediately?" Then I approve the post in the admin section but the change does not "stick" as there is no way to make the purchase afterwards.

Only on upload not edit
My not just do a blind sql query against the products table and change the userid to his userid and keep in mind for future ads to make sure to fill in this spot if your posting others ads
Upload ads as user
