What's in this update?
There is a new, much better looking design, you can check it out here: http://demo.classiscript.com/.
It has 4 different color schemes that you can choose from: Aqua, Orange, Blue and Pink.
If you want to use it go to Admin panel -> Settings and in the Theme field select Attero (+ the desired color scheme).
Added a slider for the homepage that displays classifieds in a cool manner.
To set it up on your homepage go to Admin panel -> Pages and edit 'index'. In the beginning you can add something like this:
[slider listing-type="date" num=8 with-images-only="true"]This will display the latest 8 classifieds that have images.
You can also display classifieds from a certain category like this:
[slider listing-type="category" listing-context="3" num=8]The listing-context parameter holds the ID of your desired category. You can find the ID by going to Admin panel -> Categories and click edit on the desired category - the ID is displayed there.
- Added ability to edit images on a classified.
- Improved the image upload process. Users can now upload several images at once, see the thumbnails and also upload images with drag and drop.
Admin user can now make certain classifieds premium. This is in case you want to promote your own classifieds - no need to go through the payment process for that.
Simply edit the classified when logged in as admin and there is a new dropdown - Plan which lets you choose the desired classified plan.
- Fixed a bug where the price could not be a floating number like 12.50.
- Added French and Russian translations.
Some other invisible improvements - JS and CSS files are now combined and minified for better performance;
upgraded CodeIgniter to the latest version 2.1.0;
thumbnails are now dynamically generated and not stored on the filesystem;
