On Classifieds, Part Two

Posted by wimg , in Board Talk 21 March 2011 · 3,268 views

As promised, I would continue with my previous column on changes for the marketplace forums. We haven't entirely finalized everything yet, and there still will be an update of the software for some bug fixes, hopefully before the end of next week, but so far it looks quite stable. Some of the manuals on how to use Classifieds have been written as well, only a few smaller chapters remain.Having made you all curious, no doubt, let me show you a few screen shots of the soon-to-be-released add-on, likely in its almost-complete set-up.IOW, let me give you a sneak preview :D.First of all, where to find Classifieds when it is enabled, and how to access it, is by means of a (new) tab between Forums and Blog:Posted ImageClicking on this tab, will give one the following view, displaying all the categories and subcategories in Classifieds:Posted ImageNote that the general Writing Instruments category is highlighted here with blue, and it consists of three subcategories. Clicking on the Writing Instruments category itself presents the following screen:Posted ImageNot only does this display list of subcategories, but also a listing of items in those subcategories. Now what if one clicks on a subcategory, f.e., the Low Volume one:Posted ImageGreat, just the items in the Low Volume subcategory. Now on to click on that beautiful Urushi pen:Posted ImageAll details are visiblenow, plus a bunch of thumbnails of the pictures attached to this classified. Lets click on one of those thumbnails:Posted ImageThe complete picture shows up now, and one can save the picture, or close it again to go back to the classified. Anyway, so far this sneak preview of Classifieds. Looks simple enough. :DWarm regards, Wim

Have to agree with GeeTee. A currency symbol in the price field would be a great improvement.Posted Image
