Make money with Classy
Did we mention that you could use this to make money?
Before you decide that this is or isn’t the best theme for you, let’s highlight one more way you can make money with this theme.
Since it’s a ClassiPress child theme, its great parent theme covers lot of good features to monetize your website.. Yep! You can charge users to:

  • Add a listing
  • Feature a listing
  • Add a listing in a specific category
  • Or site memberships’ packages!

We’ve gone even further to also support ad spaces. So even if you don’t want to charge for anything else, you can still earn money by placing advertising banners such as AdSense which we have created a module for it.
Classy is a mix of beauty, functionality and ease.

    Never received any email. I fixed it myself. Thank you for nothing.

    • author

      Good you fixed it yourself. make sure you compare it with the files I sent before. you maybe missed a line of code or a condition.
      For the records.I even used my gmail to send it to your email mj@…. because your server was blocking our mailing one from
      You are welcome.

  • mkjj

    Hi, seems to work fine. Thank you. I have no idea, why your email was blocked. This is very rare. There are no speficic anti-spam rules set on the server.

  • aj2703

    What is the size of the picture on the homepage…? There is no info in the theme…

  • aj2703

    FOOTER CONTACT BANNER Is set to on. It says and I quote “Appears on all the site except home page.”

    On my site it appears ONLY on the HOME Page and does not appear on any other page?

    The total opposite of what is says.

    • author

      @aj2703, I am going to check out the contact banner option and fix it.
      You can upload any big image that’s bigger than 1200px X at least 350px height in case you use the boxed layout and 2200px wide

  • aj2703

    How to edit “All States” text in Advanced Search…

    • author

      You can do that by editing the file template-parts/form-ad_search.php
      Which “add an image” button you are referring to ?

  • aj2703

    Add an image button needs to be clicked twice to launch…

  • aj2703

    Add an Image..? no, When you click on Advanced search button a couple of dropdowns appear. on the far left it’s a location field that when you click on it at the top it says “All States”. I live in England R and would like to change it.

    Also where is the comments box at the bottom of the ads..? I don’t it..?

    • author

      1- You can change the ” all states” by editing this file classy/template-parts/form-ad_search.php
      2-the couple of drop down images is a minor css issue,I think we better fix it on our release. expect it tomorrow with other few bugs’ fixes, like the contact banner thing.
      3-I am going to check out the form, yet it’s included in clasispress not classy theme .You can test it there if you want.

  • aj2703

    Sorry excuse that last comment.

    The Add an Image button in the place an ad form. You have to click on it twice for it to launch..

  • aj2703

    Ignore that R. It is actually a classipress problem. I apologise for that, should have deactivated the theme and plugins first ….

    Hello, for when integrating with woocommerce?


    • author

      Hi Rower,
      No eta for now, but we are working on it.
      The good part that we planned to create a multi-vendor module for classy so users can place ads and products and get paid through the site and the site owner gets a commission.
      The bad part that our plan was expanded with more features and options.
      SO classy won’t be only compatible with WC but enhanced with a multi-vendor marketplace module.
      We are back to the dev tasks of this plan, I will keep you updated about it here and on our fb page.
      Best regards

      • rower

        Hello, will you add any options so that the owner, instead of charging a commission, covers a monthly fee?


        • author

          Rower, The multivendor module we are going to implement uses woocommerce, which means You can setup and use any woocommerce addon like recurring or subscriptions ones.

    Have you some documentation for configure it well ??

    • author

      Hi Patrice,
      There is no docs available for now, we are still working on it.
      can you post your url so I test the search by country field ?

  • patriceinformatique

    Hi anew

    I’ve something doesn’t work great when i try to use search bar on the search by country “cp_country” field it doesn’t work.

  • patriceinformatique

    Here’s the link

    • author

      @patrice: You have only 2 fake ads so you cannot test the search function using them, I’d suggest to fill up the website with real ad listings, located at the cities you mentioned above then you test it
      I am sure it will work.

  • oachour

    Hi , can you plz tel me this child theme can be rtl language as Arabic language ,

    • author

      I am not sure it does. our child theme is partially RTL compatible.we use bootstrap framework which is 100% compatible but classipress itself isnt RTL.
      So I am afraid it’s not yet ( both classipress and classy).. sorry 🙁
      if you have any other question, please let me know.
      Best regards

  • Ludovic


    I’ve just send you an email about a few issue with classy on
    I have also one requirement.

    thanks on advance for your help!

  • Emmnde


    We are interested in your theme. Is there a way for buyers to pay through site owner. We want seller only to receive funds from site owner when buyer receives item. Secondly we want to install demo data for easy setup, is that possible. Please confirm.


  • rditty


    I installed Classy but the drop down search categories don’t look right.

    Here is my site:

    There are two “All Categories” and “All Countries” buttons stacked on top of each other.
    How do I get these buttons to look like they do in the demo?
