AdSplash

Live Demo

This child theme works up to ClassiPress 3.6.1, it is not compatible with ClassiPress 4.x

AdSplash is a responsive ClassiPress 3.4+ child theme enhanced with new features that extend the ClassiPress theme on both desktop and mobile devices. Some of the features built into AdSplash include:

Mobile Responsive Menu

  • AdSplash features a new responsive menu that turns into accordion on mobile devices making this the most mobile friendly child theme for Classipress

Responsive Tabs & Accordions

  • AdSplash features an improved tab system that turns into accordion on mobile devices making this the most responsive, mobile friendly child theme for Classipress.
  • these tabs, just like the List-Grid layout design, use cookies to preserve the state of the last opened tab upon page refresh or closing the browser.
  • Recent ads (3rd tab) is presented by default to new visitors but this can be changed to a different tab ( there is an admin option built for this ).
  • the first (Welcome) home tab is best used as a description page which is great for SEO (you can edit it in admin, html editor is enabled so you can use both text and images)
  • Popular and Random ads front tabs can be disabled from admin for every visitor or only for the ones that use a mobile device.

Layout and Colors

  • AdSplash features multiple color variations (Orange, Brown, Cherry, Grey, Green, Navy) for you to choose from. You can also choose how you want your content to be displayed (Aligned to Left or Right).

List / Grid ad layout view:

  • the user can switch between List and Grid layout with a click of a button.
  • new site visitors are presented with grid layout by default but this can be set to list as well ( there is an admin option built for this ).
  • a site wide cookie is being set for the user to save the default selected layout, this way, the users will see the preferred layout design when they browse your site and even if they close the browser and come back later, the will be presented with the same design.

Search and filter by Location

  • The top search bar has a unique feature that allows users to search for ads in a specific location using radius search.
  • The City field is powered by Google Maps API and includes the options to either determine the user’s current location using Geolocation or to autocomplete the location as the user types the first letters.
  • If City, Zipcode with Radius Search is too much for you, there’s also an option to use any other custom field as a location.

Infinite scroll pagination

  • Besides default pagination that exists in Classipress, AdSplash has an optional pagination based on Infinite Scroll. Using this feature, visitors won’t have to click on page links to navigate in category pages because its enough to scroll down and new ads (pages) are loaded on the fly using ajax.
  • This feature is optional, it can be enabled/disabled in AdSplash admin settings.

Support for Google Adsense between every 3rd ad

  • Now you can include an Adsense ad (468×60 recommended) after every 3rd ad on category pages.
  • Better yet (see bellow), these Adsense ads play well accross mobile devices.

Support for Google Adsense Mobile Responsive ads

  • AdSplash has support for Google’s new Asynchronous code for Adsense which means Adsense ads won’t break the Mobile experience anymore.

Sorting / Filtering ads

Category pages include a sorting / filtering ads option
Users can sort ads by:

  • Newest ads
  • Oldest ads
  • Last modified ads
  • Price – Lowest
  • Price – Highest
  • Most viewed ads first
  • Most commented ads first

Users can exclude following ads:

  • Ads without an image attached
  • Ads that were marked as sold
  • Ads that expired
  • Both ads that were sold and ads that expired

Related ads

  • Single ad pages are extended with a set of 5 random related ads from the same category.

Admin options framework

  • AdSplash has an options framework integrated so you can change some of the unique features present in this child theme.

Why are my thumbnail images stretched?

  • AdSplash child theme uses custom image dimensions which means you need to regenerate your existing thumbnails for this to look fine.
  • You need to install the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin and run it from WP-Admin – Tools

Where are the menu items / icons and how can I enable them?

Menu icons can be enabled for the Header menu (Primary Navigation) from within the Menu Editor just like in the screenshot bellow. Note the fa-home icon name in the title attribute.

Valid icon names are the following:

  • fa-home
  • fa-twitter-square
  • fa-comments
  • fa-plus
  • fa-minus
  • fa-tags
  • fa-lock-alt
  • fa-unlock-alt
  • fa-pencil-square-o
  • fa-map-marker
  • fa-files-o
  • fa-folder-open
  • fa-rss-square
  • fa-cog
  • fa-clock-o
  • fa-random
  • fa-caret-square-o-right
  • fa-signal
  • fa-power-off
  • fa-asterisk
  • fa-bullhorn
  • fa-sitemap
  • fa-facebook-square
  • fa-gplus-square
  • fa-wordpress
  • fa-yelp
  • fa-user
  • fa-pencil
  • fa-envelope
  • fa-file-text-o

Installation:

  1. Backup your existing Database and Classipress files to a safe place.
  2. Upload the childtheme to your themes folder or upload the zip archive through WP-Admin – Appearance – Themes – Upload
  3. Activate AdSplash Child Theme.
  4. You may need to set your menus again. Go to WP-Admin – Appearance – Menus and activate your Header and Footer menu.
  5. If you had a previous Classipress installation with existing content, your thumbnails may look stretched, you need to regenerate your thumbnails after childtheme activation: Please install the Regenerate thumbnails plugin and run it.

Great Child Theme and Wonderful Support!

I am a bit a particular about how I need my site to look and function. AdSplash caught my attention when it implemented the green theme and location search, and since I’ve come to love the clean and simple look and feel AdSplash has to it. I’m glad to be using this wonderfully well built child theme, as it works perfectly for my site’s needs. While rebuilding the site, I did run into a couple of issues, and I was impressed and grateful with how quickly Ovidiu is to give support. Thank you for the excellent work you have accomplished with AdSplash and for providing good support, Ovidiu 🙂 It’s much appreciated!

    Hello
    Can I change the background of this issue?

  • author
    Ovidiu Bica

    Hello, you can change the background from WordPress admin.

  • M

    Hi, I really like your theme but I’m wondering if you could make the layout like Ultra Classifieds. The sections in Ultra Classifieds are not separated as the main classipress theme. It looks very tight. Can you have such an upgrade for your theme or maybe to create another one? To be honest, I am looking to change from Ultra Classifieds as they are not very cooperative and I have a problem with their theme for quite a long time already, however but I like that “Tight Look” of the theme.

    Kind Regards

    • author
      Ovidiu Bica

      Hi M, AdSplash may not be as tight as Ultra but I think that I achieved this goal you’re looking for through tabs and accordions. The layout doesn’t stretch too much, content is always at your eyesight and mobile users are taken automatically to the relevant content they were looking for.

      I think its hard to please everyone, if you want to have your own ideas implemented, you may need to hire a developer (I don’t have time for custom development at this moment).

    Hi Ovidiu, nice theme. I ve just bought Adsplash its quite easily understand how your theme function fyi. However, it will be tremendous help for your purchasers if you could layout steps on how to edit and make changes on Adsplash backend.eg Logo, Add catagories, Post Ads and etc..

    And one very important function you have missed out is the Location(City/States) category search function. I am not sure if you left it on purpose for your future plugins project, but personally felt that is the Adsplash missing link.

    • author
      Ovidiu Bica

      Hi Jeremy, I’ll try to update the FAQ section with the steps needed to setup logo, and menus.

      As for the location, which one are you talking about? the one next to Category, Author “Location” Clock ?

      If yes, that link only appears in the category pages because it relies on default Classipress Refine Search widget which is only present on category pages.

      Edit: Just realized that feature didn’t make it to AdSplash, its only present in Jibo child theme

      Hi there, I’m not sure why your images are gone from the single ad listing but as a test, you can enable the Classipress theme and see if the images are back on the single ad listing page. If they are, it should also show up on AdSplash.

      Let me know if you have other questions.

        Thanks, that’s much better!

        I do have a couple questions actually:
        1) How hard would it be to make my own color scheme for this? I imagine its a matter of choosing my colors and changing the appropriate CSS classes?

        2) Excellent idea with the Locations field in the top search bar. Is it able to be connected to a custom field rather than State? I have my own custom “Locale” field, because my site is already targeted to only one state, so I’d like it to be a drop-down of my set locales rather than the state.

        I’m binge developing my new site over the weekend and want to get it ready to market by Monday evening…meaning I’ll probably buy it as soon as I know for sure it will work for me.

        Thanks again for your time!

        • hyperion

          Sorry, I guess I should have read the description more carefully. I see that the location field can be set to any custom field. Win #1. The customization of colors isn’t as important to me so I think I’ll be buying your theme!

    Im very interested in this child theme, is it compatible with classipress v3.41 ?
    Thank you.

    I just bought the Adsplash child theme and i uploaded it and it says:

    This theme requires a parent theme. Checking if it is installed…

    The parent theme could not be found. You will need to install the parent theme, classipress, before you can use this child theme.

    Theme installed successfully.

    I have ClassiPress 3.41 installed already, i’m testing it cause i’m going to build it for somebody, here is where i’m testing it:

            Ovidiu Bica

            You can copy one of the color stylesheets from adsplash\style folder and start from there. If you provide a base primary color, I can create a new color scheme for you and also include it in the official release.

            I’m not sure I understand the last question though.

  • Wrostran

    I mean how to retrieve data from database, eg When the user place and ad, the user have to fill a form like: price, category, state and customized fields. So i will like to know the code or [shortcode] to display the data from the database, so i can place it where ever i want.

    I dont know what the code looks like but here is an example:
    [price] or
    [cp_size] or

    I hope you understand me, Thank you

  • author
    Ovidiu Bica

    Its not that easy, it depends where you are on the page. If you are on the single ad page you can use the following code:

    ID, APP_TAX_CAT, 'term_id' );
    cp_get_ad_details( $post->ID, $cat_id );
    ?>

    This should fetch the ad details attached to current ad. (Without the description text).

      Ovidiu Bica

      1. I don’t really know as I haven’t tested the plugin. Send me a copy so I can check. (use the email address).

      2. You should use a custom field (cp_currency) with desired values and assign it to the form.

      • arubasells

        Ok sounds good i will be emailing you the plugin shortly. I also have one more question if you dont mind.

        1. How do i change the search location drop down menu? It just says California for me and i cant get it to update with the 6-7 locations i want to appear there.

        • author
          Ovidiu Bica

          Please use the email for support requests, this is just a comments area

          1. You need to decide what custom field you use for location in “AdSplash options”. Default option is probably cp_state, that’s why it shows California (The first demo ad that’s inserted when you install Classipress has the state California).

          Just decide what custom field you add to the form for users to select their location when they post the ad, then insert this field in AdSplash options.

          Email me if you don;t get this right.

          • arubasells

            hey what is your email i got a question i couldnt get the cp_state to update the drop down list. its odd. help please with you remail so i can ask you.
