Hi everyone,

I am very excited that development will continue on this module...as it is one of the most popular sections on one of my sites, which is "www. myottawa .ca/modules/catads/".

"Thecat", if you are reading this, thank you very much for the work you have done so far!

Here is a list enhancements that I would personally like to see to this module:

(I may be repeating what posters above me have already said...)

Essential Enhancements:

1. One image thumbnail displayed beside each ad. You can click the thumbnail to visit the actual ad page.

2. Users allowed to upload multiple images, and can select which one appears as the main thumbnail beside the ad on the index page.

3. User defineable fields and field names, again per category.

4. RSS feeds for each ad category, or all the ads together.

5. multi-page navigation at the bottom of the page, including on the "latest ads" block or page.

5. ability to separate commercial/from non-commerical sellers

6. a "my ads" page, where ads are listed with thumbnails...sort of like your own mini-store...i know your ads are already listed on your profile page, but this would keep these results separate, so if you are selling alot of things, you can say, hey check out my "my store" page

(like at this site: www. usedottawa .com/FormNewMyLists

7. allow users to modify Duration of posted ads

8. On the admin side, it would be nice if, when looking at the list of the latest ads, I could select the ads I want to delete with a checkbox, and then delete them all at once. This way I don't have to go through the deletion process for each ad. As well, if you could make it so that the user name is displayed beside each ad in the admin section, this would be helpful as well. Why? Because I get about 20 spam ads a day... and not only do I want to delete the actual ad, but I also want to delete the user as well. If I can see the user names beside the ad in the admin section, I can just write down the names, rather then having to click on each ad to see who posted it, before I delete it.

Note: many of the features that I am looking for can be seen at this site:

www. usedottawa .com/

This is a very successful site in my area, because it has been made in such a way so that it is extremely easy to add, modify, or delete your ads.

I look forward to seeing any of these enhancements made to the catads module. As I have stated before, I am willing to make a small donation to the module developer to thank him for this work. I encourage others to do so as well.

I think right now, on Catads's index page, all the latest ads are presented in one table, -below the categories.
It would be nice to have the latest adverts (on Catads index page) presented by categories
Or an option, to choose which categories should appear on the index page, and or maybe how many latest adverts should be on the Catads' index page.

No, it's not too late but we can't promise to implement everything.

Hi H

My feature request is quite obvious, so you might already implemented it:

1. Ability to have the sub-categories in the top of the category pages.

2. Ability to deal with the sub-categories in the module main page ( IE: separate the subcategories/sub-sub categories apearance, from the categories in the template file).

3. have aditable fields (as is now for currency etc') for country and city. (the ability to add/edit values in the module is great, it's quite needed for those fields too, if one wants to limit adds address to certain cities or areas).

Again, it's a nice module as is now, I'm sure it'll be greater in your hands .
