    Best PHP classifieds software?

    Hello there

    So what is the best PHP script if I want to open a horse classifieds web site..??

    I was thinking about:


    http://www.esvon.com/pg/products/p_classifieds/


    If anyone has a better idea let me know...

    Need a response ASAP - by the way I'm so spoiled by vbulletin software that it is very difficult to impress me with a php script now

    They're expensive. I just created an auto classified script for a client, but I didn't develop it on a production-based platform. I should probably re-design it for distribution.

    I looked for a long time for scripts to work from, but found none. The one you found seems most reliable.

    Good luck

    Geodesic Solutions

    Definitely want to give Geo a look.

    http://www.geodesicsolutions.com

    This software is as good as I have ever seen. They have a unique templating system on the Enterprise versions that is excellent especially if you want to have detailed design control.

    Even heard that they are writing in horse specific functionality.

    Did you take a look at hotscripts.com? Scripts are rated there, so that may give you more options.

    So how did Esvon Classifieds work for you? As smoothly as vBulletin?

    HI FindSP. Does Esvon Classifieds have a way to create more user friendly URL so a user can more easily type in a URL to go directly to a listing?

    For example, instead of: http://www.myURLhere/classifieds.php?a=2&b=422

    something like:
    http://www.myURLhere/422897

    Thanks.

    does esvon classifieds have open-source code? I've heard that almost all of it is encoded so you cannot customize the code.

    Evson is encoded. I would never buy their script. It isn't even that impressive. Geodesic looks good but is very expensive. In addiiton their email addresses don't function. Doesn't give me a good feeling. Their mid range scripts are missing some essentials which is weird. I looked at Almond Classifieds but their mailbox is completely full and you can't reach the. It looks pretty powerful considering the price and the ability to have multiple parts per cateogory, e.g. jobs different than computer parts.

    The last one I saw is chameleon. Has its good parts but I don't like the framing.

    This should be easy. All the good ones are currently in perl and I'm hoping that someone else has a better solution. Evson is absolutely a no go and no reason to go encoded.

    I didn't see any option for that.

    As it stands it is hard to believe you pay $500 for it AND you have the benefit of putting up their powered by link on the bottom of your pages or pay ANOTHER $50 to remove. I can't imagine what it will end up costing for a non-exclusive license...

    I run a vbulletin based community and recently tried this software:

    ClassifiedPost
    http://www.photopost.com/class/

    Its setup pretty nice, but didnt integrate with VBB as well as I had hoped. It's worth a look though if you're running a standalone classifieds.

    Surprisingly Noah's classifieds is excellent. I ended up with deltascripts' PHP Classifieds which is suprrisingly good and superior to most. It has a few html errors here and there but otherwise pretty clean. The admin interface is extremely awkward but very powerful if you invest some time. In a day I got a very nice site up and running and will hone it this weekend.

    Right now, I'd say that phpclassifieds at deltascripts is the best of breed.

    Mustang -- there is a huge difference between Photopost and Photopost classifieds. The first is excellent and the second is a big work in progress.

    ^^ yup photopost is awesome and I still use that. Classifiedpost has its strengths, but its just a hacked up copy of photopost really. Lots of potential but I agree it's not there yet.

    We're working on a PHP version right now, but it is months away. It will be free, and possibly open source. We're not sure of the final direction, but the idea is to make it fully functional, and with hooks (obviously) into our AdConnect network to let sites share content. We're looking at Noah's and a few others for comparison since we know we'll have to compete with them. I'll try to come by here when we are ready for Beta testers.

    In the meantime, any "required" features you want to mention, let me know in this thread or offline.
