    First I installed WP NL, second Classipress 3.5 NL after your Classy, but it won’t show for ” Place an ad” the Dutch version from Classipress “plaats een advertentie” , I checked the Classipress NL version and it written correct inside the PO file but it don’t show in your Classy in Dutch.

      Hi Boldman,
      please send the url + admin access + ftp access so I login and see how I fix that on your website.

      Hi skilly,
      Have you upgraded to the latest version 1.0.3, we have fixed the scroll issue for chrome and IE bug.
      the code we added to style.css is this
      .sbOptions {overflow-y: auto;}

    i am not getting any updates. when i tried to install using wordPress it time out i had to copy it to the directory and use it from there. will that prevent me from getting updates?

    • author

      Hi skilly,
      can’t you use the updater plugin provided by appthemes? it’s the perfect solution for updating your appthemes products !
      No it will not prevent you from getting the updates.

  • tomeksobek


    I am considering buying Classy theme for my new project, however I have some concerns and pre-sale questions regarding your support for Classy and Ultraclassifieds product. I have been using Ultraclassifieds for a long time, although you do not seem to provide any support for it anymore, even though I sent you an email asking for your help with some compatibility and styling issues with Ultraclassifieds theme and a new version of Classipress and WordPress. Ultraclassifieds theme have some styling and functionality issues since V 3.5.4 version and you didn’t provide any update for Ultraclassifieds since 13/09/2015. I even provided you with some working solutions on fixing these issues, however you did not provided an update for this theme up to this day.
    You claim that you provide updates for you existing customers and your support is a top-notch.
    ( )
    Well, I have some doubts about this.
    I am planning to use Ultraclassifieds for my current projects running on this theme, because it has some unique features that Classy lacks of.

    Therefore I have the following questions:
    1) Are you planning to provide an update for Ultraclassifieds theme to make it work with current ClassiPress and WordPress verisons? If so, when will it happen?
    2) When are you planning to provide a grid view for Classy theme? If so, when will it happen?
    3) Are you planning to add a feature to Classy theme which would allow to list subcategories of a chosen category in a sidebar? This feature is available in the Ultraclassifieds theme. If so, when will it happen?

    Best regards,

    • tomeksobek

      I noticed that your new Classy theme has some potential, however it lacks of some great features that Ultraclassifieds theme has.

      Are you planning to provide some compatibility update for Ultraclassifieds? I am running a site on Ultraclassified theme and would like it to stay like that and will stick to this great theme with my site.
      However I am planning to launch a few sites soon and would like to use Classy theme but I am very anxoius whether you will provide future compatibility and improvement updates for this theme. I wouldn’t like to be disappointed with your new theme like I am with Ultraclassifieds.

      Is it possible to enhance Classy theme with features mentioned in my previous comment in the next update?

    • author

      Hi Thomas,
      Thanks for considering to purchase our theme.
      regarding our support,We believe that we provide a top notch support, BY EMAIL, and this is the key that our potential customers,customers or even our competitors can’t see. unlike the forums, where everyone see what others post, and like few other marketplace sellers, we don’t provide support on forums. and sometimes customers fall into sending support requests in forums , so they don’t receive replies – for the reason above -.

      -Where have you sent the email? to support @ ?? I cannot find your email in our inbox (I can screenshot it for you). did you use the same username/name??
      Anyway, we are preparing a major update for ultraclassifieds, eclassify and flatron, fixing bugs and adding more features.. what’s important that we never ignore or neglect any of our old themes. especially that lately we hired 2 develeopers, so more work will see the light everyday.. and the proof that after we released classy, we released 3 minor updates in less than 15 days. we keep it on the top.

      What are the features that you see they are in UC and not on classy?? ofcourse we don’t try to kill a theme by another, why not we add more features for both. so both themes’ customers would be winners.

      – Regarding your questions:
      – 1 already answered 🙂 no eta yet but the process is open already.
      – 2 For now, we are adding a marketplace and woocommerce compatibility, so the grid/list view won’t be in the next updatewhich would be released in few days (7-10 days top), then we implement the grid view in parallel with more bugs’ fixes if they appear + more options. in the next release.

      – 3 if our customers want a feature, we add it. I will take a note of that idea and discuss with our team and see what we can do. if it’s not that complicated, we make a widget for that…I will see Ultraclassifieds, if the code is compatible with classy framework, so we just click -move code – 🙂
      If this is the case, it will come with the next release which we work with 4 hands to make it as soon as possible.

      Best regards

    Quero tirar o campo “All Country” e substituir por “CP_CITY”

    • author

      You have to edit the file classy/template-parts/ad_search-form.php
      did you try the admin option to disable the advanced search mode?

  • srinu

    Hi, i am using country based classifieds. so i want to remove countries search field. i ant to replace “countries to states” “States to Localities” How to change ?

    • author

      Hi Srinu,
      There is no option for that except if you edit a core code
      We can help you to display the states instead of countries, but what do you mean by localities?what would be the list of localities include?
      anyway to edit the countries to states, go to classy/templates-parts/form_ad-search.php, find this code WHERE field_name = ‘cp_country’ (around the line #30) and replace it by this WHERE field_name = ‘cp_state’

      then scroll down ( use CTRL+F to find this )
      All countries => replace it by All states

      ans save the file.
      WHERE field_name = ‘cp_state’

    • author

      why not you go to classipress => custom fields => edit the cp_state, and cp_country lists? you keep the name cp_country there but remove all the countries list and add states instead !!!!!

      and then you go t the file I mentioned and change only the labels? like from All countries => All states etc ? without changing any other code !

      • srinu

        Hi I find lot of bugs in your theme ? R u fully tested ?
        1 ) Colors not applying
        2) Home Page Ad Banners not not applying center position ?
        3) Report problem button not working.
        4)Featured Ad Ribbon not displaying single ad (Ad Dtails) Page
        5)Tags Second line no spacining
        6) Emtey PriceTag Displaying (some ads no price why displaying emtey price)?
        7) Search buttons height styles loading very slow…
        Otherwise working fine.

        • author

          So now our theme have lot of bugs?!!!
          send the url + admin access to support @ , I will look into it
          besides that, for the price tag it shows as a container not a price tag, if the ad has no price ofcourse it shows nothing inside the container, how should it appear? is this a bug?
          Anyway, send the admin access, I will check all out

        • author

          by the way, always activate the prent theme and check out the behaviour of the same aspect on it.
          I’d be waiting for the url + admin access by email, please do not post anything here

    • author

      Hi Sreenubfa,
      that solution maybe works only with cp, not its parent theme, so I will make sure I add it in the next release
      For the report ad issue, I will review and fix it and then include that fix with other minor ones with the next update which will be released in 2-3 days

      I love your site nice job.

      Can you please tell me:

      How do you put the featured ads slider with images in the sidebar?

      How do you put the related ads slider with images below the ad details?

      How do you put other ads by this poster slider with images below ad?

      Please tell me. Thanks.

    • author

      Sreenubfa, the theme was fully tested, but you are talking about a third party plugin, and you know there are tens of products of other sellers in the marketplace, we cannot test them all with our child theme, but we make it compatible once a new issue is discovered
      for the ” empty price script” , it’s a cusotm mod for clasipress and you wanted to apply it on our child theme and you didn’t know how ( it’s not a part of the theme but a third party customization), I promised you to add it to the next update.
      The slow loading : deactivate all the plugins + delete any cache plugin you use + remove any big image you use for the header and test it again.
      Any site we stuff it with content loads a bit slower than the empty or normal one. the content weights !

      Hi skilly,
      can you give me url of the ad page wheere it shows the custom fields ?
      do you use any plugin to show that or you use the default foems/custom fields of classipress?

    • author

      please activate classipress for 5 seconds after you confirm it, then get back to classy if you want. I’ll see the custom fields on the same page on both themes .

  • Skilly851

    din’t work

    • author

      go to appearance => themes => activate classipress .
      We do this to test the difference between the behaviour of classy and classipress in that part.
      The custom fields and forms are part of classipress, but we added their actions to display them ( if they exist) in our child theme .
