"For Trade" Ad Type
I'm trying to create a "For Trade" ad type. First I tried modifying one of the "Personals" (uploadproduct2) ad types, but just ran into too many problems.
So, now I'm trying to use the "For Sale" ad type with a new field added. But I'm having problems with this as well.
My first question is after all these years and a number of requests why hasn't a "For Trade" ad type been created? When I search about "For Trade" ad types I see some requests that date back quite a long way. Do you think it's possible that you might create this needed ad type any time soon?
Ok, with that said... I next decided to use the "For Sale" ad type as it's pretty close to what is needed. And, I added a new field to add "What I'm willing to trade for" into the form and that has created a single line text box.
The field really should be a textarea -- but that doesn't seem to be an option? Also, I'd love to be able to turn off the "Price" section as there isn't a price on a "For trade" ad.
Short of creating a whole new set of show, edit, upload templates from scratch (that then has to be updated every time the product update includes template changes) is there any way to make a more credible "For Trade" ad type?
PS. And, I guess Showcat would need some changes too.
