Very Nice Theme

I like this setup very well, you just have to search hard and long to find information on how to use it. I think there need to be an instructional manual that comes with it, since it have so many features. Quick support is there when you need it but I am one who like to figure out thing for myself first.

    I LOVE your theme! This takes Classipress to a whole new level! Amazing! Congratulations! I wish your “post an ad” link would work, so I can see what your page looks like. Wow!

    • author

      Hi David,
      Thank You so much for such kind encouraging words.
      As you know, on demos we cannot allow editing or adding listings (imagine everyone does it and posts anything, the content would be full of spammy ads) for this we disabled it for demo matters.
      But the button works the same as on classipress, we haven’t edited that form , we just changed its look and the appearance of the form/fields to fit classy design.
      I will see if I can take some screenshots of it.. but what’s important that the forms and everything is working properly.
      My best regards

  • Boldman

    Hello Spartac,

    this theme looks great.
    Adds will slowly ranks lower after I while , it go’s from page 1 to page 5 and up …….
    Has this theme a module you can jump adds to page 1 again against a little fee ?
    This way classiefieds works normaly in Europe as you know and payment profider PayPal can be used.

    When an Add ranks lower after a while then it send automatic an email to the owner from the Add that he can put his Add on page 1 again by pushing this button and pay…..?

    Will be nice if you have such.

    • author

      Thanks for your comment and kind words.
      Thank you one more for pointing that out. Classy theme works perfectly with the integrated module of classipress which has paypal as the default option.
      And regarding the option to jump ads to the first page, there is a small plugin in the marketplace. for this we haven’t added it to our theme, but we would think to enhance it more by adding more features and options like this one. This is just the first release, and our customers will receive free instant updates during their joyful and successful journey with us.

      I have already added these options to our list in order to implement it in one of our next releases.
      meanwhile, Classy theme works perfectly with that plugin


  • wzoj

    Excelente… Teria que ter a versão grade.

  • boldman

    I think some failures in it, it show scrollbar countries and categories double, strange.
    I get no links in the 4 colums in the footer.

  • boldman

    • author

      NJo failure at all,
      You are using classipress option to show that kind of drop down, you go to appearance=>customize => site=> disable it “Use SelectBox JS” . then save settings.
      You don’t have no widget in the footer to be clicked. go to appearance => widgets => add them to the first footer and save would appear there.
      To adjust the footer settings and the width of the columns, go to classy => Footer settings. set how many column to be there. then save settings.

  • boldman

    Ok double scrollbars solved.

    I want make links (like terms, information, etc.. in the footer colums which must be redirected to a page .
    I see in what I can put there appearance => widgets => Footer 1 for example but I miss to make myself links and connect with a page?

    • author

      You can put the widget named Menu and there you choose a pre-created menu with the links you want.
      or you just drop a menu in the footer by going to appearance => menus => adjust the menu which is located in the footer menu location. which I think you already did that.

  • soukilman

    hello spartac,
    When i click on advaned search, instead of opening the extra fields, it’s taking me directly to the search result page.
    Any ideas?

    • author

      Hi Soukilman,
      can you please post your url?
      have you updated the theme to the latest version which was released yesterday?

    Thank you Spartac,
    I just downloaded the latest version but still have the issue.
    The url is:

    • author

      To fix that, go to appearance => customize => site => disable js selectbox and save settings
      Also go to classipress settings => advanced => disable js google and save settings.

  • soukilman

    Thank you for your reply.
    I tried this: appearance => customize => site => disable js selectbox and save settings
    but can’t find this: classipress settings => advanced => disable js google and save settings.

    By the way my Classy still showing version 1.0.0

    My website is only for one country. I don’t need all those fields.
    2-i’d like to add more options like the price range
    Any idea?
    -3-How to translate the “search ads” and “advanced search” bottons?
    Thank you

  • aj2703

    Brilliant theme. 🙂

    A couple of questions.

    Is there a plugin or way to integrate a shop into this so individual members can sell their own items and accept payments through the website.? Classipress’s great failure is that yes you can contact sellers, but you can’t buy through the site using paypal etc.

    Secondly. Header image background. I can’t seem to get mine to display central. It seems always to the left, even if I set the settings to Right in the media folder.

    Third. Is there a way to change the colour of the text on the Search Bar Headline..? It is white. If you look at the standard theme when first activated some of the text is lost due to the colour.

    • author

      Hi Mark,
      Very good questions. and I really like that idea. Classipress is a classified ads website and it would be good if it upgrades to be a marketplace as well where people can buy/sell their items and goods within.

      – Can you post your url so I see the header issue?
      – You can find the option to change the color of that text in header settings ( search bar text color )


  • aj2703

    I have sent you a mail with the url.

  • markanthonybgagui

    hi..why is it the auto-complete for categories and country at the search bar is not functioning? please help.

    Thanks for this great theme.

    I am thinking to create second hand selling website. Does this theme suit my purpose?
    How people will pay for the items. Otherwise, how can we monetize the website.

    Thanks, will be looking for the reply

    • author

      Hi Muhammed,
      Thank you for your kind words.
      For now, Classy isn’t tested with any marketplace/ecommerce plugin. but we are planning to make it compatible with woocommerce plugin in one of our next releases.
      if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to post them, I’d be happy to clear everything up 🙂

        Thank you Spartac,
        Yes, that would be so nice to see this theme with woocommerce. I use woocommerce on my other websites as well.

        So, i think when i have available time for new projects, i can start with AppThemes.


        • author

          We already started on it couple of days ago.
          We will enable full compatibility to woocommerce, also we plan to make it multi vendors marketplace so You (the admin) can sell on it, and you let your users sell on your website as well and you get a % and a membership rates to use it.
          Our first release of this initiate would be as simple as effective.
          @Mark (aj2703), going to check it out 🙂
          All the best guys 🙂

  • Boldman

    I’m still struggling to make links to pages in the Footer 1,2,3,4 such as privacy, terms, etc….

  • skilly851

    it worked. but the site is slow.

    • author

      Hi skilly851
      I am glad it did 🙂
      Try to use less plugins and use cache and speed up ones.
      The home page is full of content and large images, for this it loads a bit slower than the other pages.
      Enable the loader in advanced classy settings to not lose any visit.

  • aj2703

    Please check your jobthemes mail.

  • boldman

    I have some progress in the Footer colums and have set 4 Footers widget areas and try to adjust colors of the links but no luck in Classy> Footer Settings, aswell the arrow overlaps the Links , check www.

    My Classy will be Dutch Language where to adjust English content like “Post an Ad” and “Find the best Deals!” for instance ?


    • author

      Hi Boldman,
      before all, please don’t set any color in classipress appearance => customize.
      add thiscode to the custom css code
      #footer-widgets ul li a {color: #fff}
      .widget_nav_menu ul li { padding-left: 10px !important}

      then save settings

      For the translation, translate your classipress theme then activate classy .
      and find the language file of classy for extra words in the folder classy (classy.po) , open it by poedit software and translate it. and save the .mo file in classy/language.
      follow this tutorial please
      and this one to use poedit

      I’d be always here to help.
      best regards
