Description

- What's the name of the plugin/theme?

Another WordPress Classifieds

- [plugins] In a few words, what does it do?

Add a classified ads section to your WordPress site, quickly and easily.

- How is the plugin/theme different from what's already provided on the Commons?

We do not currently provide this functionality.

- What's the potential impact? Who will use it?

I’d like to set up essentially a private Craigslist for the GC that can be a repository for the ads for housing, roommates, bookshelves, bikes, and editing needs that currently go out on departmental listservs can all be displayed in one central location, searchably, where they won’t get lost at the bottom of a stack of emails. I need this plug-in to make the site work.

- Who initially made the request?

Leila Walker

- Who is the plugin author?

awpcp.com

- Say a little bit about the release history and popularity of the plugin. How many times has it been downloaded? When was it last updated?

The plugin was last updated on August 29. 93,000+ downloads. Average 4.5 star rating. Some posts on the WP forums saying it doesn't work (but people always complain). Might want to test.

The ClassiPress theme is added in https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/3de17de24c4c697d5ecea6b8cfb4b8e973f4ff5f

Before closing the ticket, I want to clarify what the purpose of this theme is. Are we making this theme available to all blogs? Or will the theme be used only for the development of a centralized Classifieds area?

#6 Updated by Matt Gold over 10 years ago

Good question. I'm fine with having it be enabled network wide, though we can/should discuss this with the subcommittee. Is it even possible, given our current setup, to have a theme be available to only one sub-blog?

It's possible for a network admin to enable a theme on a blog without making it available to the entire network.

Based on discussion among the community team, I'm going to reach out to Leila after the release, and ensure that she's able to activate the theme on blog.
