View Full Version : How does a free ad work?
March 8th, 2010, 04:47 PM
I see there is a free ad option (Count) that can be set by usergroup in the admin utility. I'm curious how it tracks this for each user? Can this be controlled, reset, changed on a per user basis?

This states the number of free ads a user can have before being prompted for payment so its for use on a payment setup classifieds. It will count how many ads a user has and if under the free amount then they wont have to pay otherwise they will have to pay.

I should probably clarify this question a bit.
The two ways I see this could work are:
1. There is an ad count for each user (or it is calculated dynamically) and a the free ad counter is used to compare against the ad count and if the ad count exceeds the free ad counter limit, then additional ads are billable.
2. There is a means by which each ad placed is tracked against the user, and the user is allowed only one free ad. Of course this would imply that there would be some expiration to the time frame in which the limitation applies, and since I can't find that, I have to presume that number 1 above is how this is designed to work.
I am simply hoping to confirm this.
