I am looking to migrate my current classifieds to Photopost Classifieds.

I have some questions if I may.


Is there a admin/user demo available?
Can I migrate or is there a way to move vbclassifieds to PPclassifieds?
Can the Admin Designate a Category/Forum that threads automatically post as new ads are set in classifieds?
Can I get a discount for migrating from a competitor?


With regards to item 3, My current classifieds can assign a category/forum, that when a new ad is posted in my classifieds, it appears automatically as a users New Post. Can this classified do this?

An example is here
This is my For Sale Forum in Vbulletin For Sale (http://www.sportcityrider.com/f56/)

This is the same Ad but in my current classified For Sale Actually Classified (http://www.sportcityrider.com/classifieds/viewad-3.html)

Thanks in advance :)

1. Is there a admin/user demo available?

There are no active admin demo's currently to my knowledge but you can view a default site and register a user to play around with it

Main Index - Omegatron Classifieds (http://www.omegatron.net/classifieds)

2. Can I migrate or is there a way to move vbclassifieds to PPclassifieds?

There are no importers written for classifieds at this time. No one has ever meantioned any products and there are not really any commercial classifieds apps that are in direct competition with ours. vbclassifieds would be closest to that arena although our application runs as a standalone or integrates with like 15 different forum products.

3. Can the Admin Designate a Category/Forum that threads automatically post as new ads are set in classifieds?

If your talking about posting ads in the actual forum that would be a hack or plugin for vb not part of our code maybe any of these

http://www.photopost.com/forum/classified-mods/126006-auto-posting-notices-about-classifieds-vbulletin.html

or maybe this

4. Can I get a discount for migrating from a competitor?

Discounts are given for buying multiple quantities of licenses or services at one time. I dont honestly see that small vb addon ever as a competitor of all the features this product has which are numerous. vbclassifieds also appears to be quite dead.

What's going on??? - vBClassified (http://www.vbclassified.com/showthread.php?t=3243)

Thanks for the feedback, Yes VBclassifieds is dead, the author abandoned his base. So I am here looking at this.

Since I cannot see the links you posted I cannot make the judgment if this is what I am referring to.

Simply, VBclassifieds had in its product feature, to link adds to a catagory forum, by placing that catagory forum ID # in VBC settings. So whatever new add appears in the script, appears as a post in the catagory forum, linking directly tot he add

Does PPClassifieds do this?

No as I replied this would be a hack mod and I posted links to what may be what you want but it is not in the default code since our product is more than just a vb mod.
