hi guys, I’m afraid it will take longer than i expected as i dont want to launch it half baked.
There’s still some trouble with the admin part of this plugin, particularly in handling spam users.
It will be a big flaw and your site will be flooded by spam post, if this feature will not be in the plugin ๐Ÿ™‚
will update you from time to time.

  • I have been waiting for this for a long time ๐Ÿ˜€
    Hope it will be released soon with custom posting field
    Thanks alot.
    If it has paid version, I “will” pay for it immediately

    • i’m sorry, i’m super swamped with work since i came back from my christmas vacation — no time at the moment to continue but as for the progress — im done with the main features like add edit and delete of ads, ads currently can be viewed in users’s profile.

      Just thinking of a good way to display the ads, either in a separate page or insert it above the discussion list (front page). that’s all what’s left and after that will start to kick off this plugin.

      gonna upload some screenshots later

  • Hi, i tested the ad feature..Great work

    I just think that admin should have to grand the user access to do that in case they post ads that doesn’t fit in with the kind of website the person is running.

    Or do it where admin has to approve the ads before they go live…

    For me i want to be the only one posting the ads… where i can disable it to all the users and use it as the admin.

    Just my input …But i love the idea…can’t wait for it to finish

    • oh crap!! you are right!!! there should be some sort of a control to the user’s access in posting to avoid spamming. Thanks for that. will work on it.
