OK. Using the default templates that come with the software, we have two main ad types. Wanted and For Sale.
If I place something up for sale, and then sell it, and so press the SOLD IT! link, the "Items Sold" count increments on the statistics panel, as does the "Value of items sold". That's great, exactly what I expect and want.
However, if I create a wanted ad, and later find it, and so I press the FOUND IT! link, then again the "Items Sold" count increments which is not really what you'd want.
I understand why, it's just different templates mapping on to the same code in the background. But it would be nice if there was a way to avoid it. Maybe a flag against the ad types to say whether the statistics should be updated for ads of this type. Or even better, the option to select which set of stats get updated. Then you could have seperate "Items Sold" and "Items Found" counters.
Does that make more sense?
