Disclaimer/Word of Caution: As with any upgrade, particularly a BETA one, please backup your systems before performing the upgrade. Novice users should be extreme caution, as if you encounter problems we will need to ask you questions about your setup to try and resolve any issues (and may ask you to modify code or your setup). If you are unsure about doing these things, you should not install or use this BETA update. Support for the BETA product will expire with each new update and not be supported at all past the BETA cycle.


Classifieds 4.0 is a start of a major update with features users have requested. obviously with vb 4.0 just around the corner we are going to have multiple product betas open so the beta cycle is going to be longer than normal.

New features:

. vB4 support
. Usergroup Payment Permissions per Category.
. SEO URLs (requires .htaccess file)
. Single URLs for images
. 301 redirects to SEO pages for spider and normal URLs
. SEO URLs enabled in Admin -> Edit Settings -> Global Options (choices are none, spider, seo)

Upgraded files

/*.php (except config-inc.php.NEW, config-intc.php.NEW, inc_ads.php, inc_classifieds.php)

forums/vb3.php (you only need this file if you are using the vb registration system)

templates/vb4enhanced/* (new directory)

HTACCESS (new file) -- You must rename this to .htaccess and upload to the classifieds directory. If your on a windows server and want to use SEO then you need to have an ISAPI Rewrite Manager installed and place the contents of the htaccess file in your ISAPI Rewrite Manager panel.

Changed files from Beta 1 are numerous so upload all the main php files and the templates/vb4enhanced directory.

There is an upgrade script to run to add any new fields needed if your going from 3.2 to 4.0. If your simply upgrading from Beta1 to Beta2 just upload the files.
