Classifieds

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

Adding a classified section to a drupal site is something that a lot of people want to do. There are currently a few different ways to create classifieds ads, but there is no hard set protocol for creating a robust classified section.

On this page, we should discuss how to create classified ads, how to add features to a classified section and the possibility of a classified module. I think the goal should be a how-to guide for adding the best possible classifieds section to your site, so I will just add to this whenever I find new information.

"What" and "Where" forms inside the Search form.

I'm sketching a web-app, like a standard YellowPages. At the top I want to place an autocompletable dual search box, like we see on most YellowPages sites:
What? (Taxonomy, Product name, Username) AND Where? (Location).

I'm interested to see what the members of this group have found to be best modules to achieve this type of standard YellowPages functionality???

How can you have 2 boxes inside the search form, one of which is a Location search box?

Any recent activity?

Hello,
I am looking to get into the publishing business by starting my own classifieds for my hometown. I wanted to start an online/print classifieds, but I could not find any suitable Drupal classifieds module... the only one out there is really simple and just won't cut it. I just wanted to post, and see if there are any others with resources (programming talent, funds), who were also looking for something similar.

Three ways to create classified ads/business directory: reviews

As far as I can tell there are three primary avenues to creating the functionality needed for classified ad or business directory websites. I'm about to test each of them so that I can figure out which is best for my purposes, so I thought I'd post here and see if anyone has any experience with these modules and can help out. When I'm finished testing them myself, I'll post the results here.

The three avenues (as far as I can tell, if there are others, please let me know) are:

Complex classifieds system, how to start one?

Hi,

I am pretty new in Drupal and have a task to build classifieds site. Just getting into understanding into cck, views etc...
First I chose to try some of the frameworks like cake, codeigniter, zend and similar, but they are too much time consuming to develop even simple user anthentication so I went to Drupal.

My requirements are:

MAJOR:
1. Classifieds are in categories (auto, furniture, jobs, pets, technics etc.)
2. Categories can have other sub-categories inside (auto -> vw,ford,ferrari, jobs -> temporary,permanent,part time) and even deeper, without limiting depth.

PayPal Node module open for testing

I've just updated my PayPalNode module which handles classifieds using per taxonomy term pricing calculations to make charging for a content-type more flexible.

It's available now for 5.x and is live on one site already.

If anybody else would like to test it and give feedback that would be great. I'm not looking for new feature ideas at present.
If everything works, I'd like to get a 1.0 release out.

Find it on the project page.

Wish List

There are some features that I think would be very useful to a classifieds section. So far, I haven't seen them in a drupal install, but here they are:

image gallery

If you're selling something, perhaps you want to show multiple images of the item you're selling, like on ebay. My classified nodes are done in CCK, and the image field (using image_attach) is just for a single image. If you want to allow more images, I suppose you can create say 5 image fields, but then how should those images be displayed on the node so that it's pretty?

search query with filters

I haven't been using the search engine module on my drupal installations, but in terms of allowing users to generate a list of nodes according to what they're looking for, Views is superior to the search engine.

Different ways to create classified ads

There are currently a couple of different ways to create classified ads in Drupal. Here they are:

CCK and Views

On the classified section for my site, I'm using CCK, Views and Contemplate (Content Template). CCK allows me to create a node type (classifieds in this case) and determine what fields I want in it. Content Template allows me to display how I want the ad itself to look, and Views allows me to create a list, and have users filter it and find only the listings they want.

Here is what my classifieds page looks like
