    Hello,
     
    1. I’m looking for ways to offer my visitors the opportunity for them to decide if they want to see the ads for each category of products or whether they want them in alphabetical order regardless of which category they relate.
    Display by product and brings it defaults to “ClassiPress” I just want to know what about the alphabetical order.

    2. Another thing I want to know is whether the plugin gives me each time I post an ad, that ad is automatically stored in the letter of the alphabet which corresponds to the first letter of the title.

    3. By now I have published about 200 advertisements, if I buy this plugins must configure one by one each ad to be displayed in the alphabet bar or once you install the plugins all ads already published are attached to the bar automatically so?

    Please, I hope your prompt reply because if everything works as I hope my purchase will immediately.

    Greetings,
    Joe

      Hello,

      This plugin brings up a listing of Categories (not ads) A to Z. If you need the ads, it can be done by a modification.

      1) A to Z listing of categories will be shown. There is no option to select which category to be shown, it just displays all ad categories available in website.

      2) The ad gets automatically stored.

      3) No need of mauanl configuration. It will automatically pull your existing ads.

      Please feel free to ask if you have any more doubts.

      Thank you,
      Omar.

        Omar Hello!
        I understand you’re saying that the plugins only categories sorted alphabetically and never announcements, if so, is not relevant to my site.
        When a person visits my site and select a category from the menu starts visiting page by page until you see something that catches your attention and that’s the one displayed by clicking really is something annoying do this so that I do would eliminate him that loss of time visitors giving you the option to view the ads by visiting the letters of the alphabet menu.
        Omar, as I talk about to perform a configuration of plugins I make two suggestions for the evalues ​​to see if they are technically feasible:

        1. Show ads sorted alphabetically instead of categories, because the categories are displayed smoothly from the main menu.

        2. Having the option to choose which ads are displayed in the alphabetical menu, this could be selected categories where the ads to be displayed alphabetically are.

        I mean, when you select the category I’m telling the plugins that all ads housed there must be shown in the alphabetical menu, therefore, if I do not select a category something like the team that has BANNER GALORE when we tell which category we show ads.

          Hola Omar!
          Entiendo que me dices que el plugins solo ordena alfabéticamente las CATEGORIAS y nunca los ANUNCIOS publicados, de ser así, no representa importancia para mi sitio.
          Cuando una persona visita mi sitio y selecciona una categoría desde el menú comienza a visitar página por página hasta ver algo que le llame la atención y ese es el que despliega mediante un clic, en realidad es algo fastidioso hacer esto por lo que a mi me gustaría eliminarle esa pérdida de tiempo al visitante ofreciendole la opción de ver LOS ANUNCIOS visitando las letras del menú alfabético.
          Omar, ya que hablas de poder realizar una configuración del plugins te hago dos sugerencias para que la evalues a ver si tecnicamente son viables:

          1.- Mostrar LOS ANUNCIOS ordenados alfabéticamente en lugar de las categorías, ya que las categorías se muestran sin problemas desde el menú principal.

          2.- Tener la opción de escoger que ANUNCIOS se van a mostrar en el menú alfabético, esto podría ser seleccionado las categorias donde están los anuncios que se desea mostrar alfabéticamente.

          Me explico, al seleccionar la categoría le estoy diciendo al plugins que todos los anuncios allí alojados deben ser mostrado en el menú alfabético, por ende, si no selecciono una categoria no se deben mostrar alfabeticamente esos anuncios, algo parecido a la selección que tiene BANNER GALORE cuando le decimos en que categoría queremos mostrar publicidad.

          Hello Joe,

          Thank you for your valuable suggestions.
          Regarding point 1, I can do it straight away for you. I have the code ready for it.

          Regarding point 2, I can’t take up that modification now, it might need sometime.

          Regards,

            By the time you estimate that you could have both options available, I am interested and would also like to know the price with the reconfiguration you have available at this time, ie, point 1.

    Hi Omar,

    Sorry if this has been already asked before, but is there the option to use the categories list to search by ads or by categories? And can it some how show all ads or all categories link for a particular letter?

    Thank you in advance!

      Hi,

      I am not much clear about your requirement. Now the list shows all Categories. This can be modified to list all ads instead of Categories, I hope that is what you are looking for.

    Hello Omar!
    This plugins I bought a year ago and has made things easier for me.
    I am redesigning my site and do not remember how to change the text size of the submenu, and remove the sign | before the A and | the end of the Z.
    If you back me explain I appreciate it.

    This plugin is excellent. Very practical.

    But…

    Sometimes, for reasons unknown, the plugin does not display the a-z correctly, and and it “spreads out” on the entire page, making it look VERY TERRIBLE.

    In addition, it almost killed my site, because when Google came to crawl a page, and the entire first screen was the categories inside the a-z list, it ranked the page VERY poorly.

    It took me some time to find this out because on my computer it always looks good.

    It is too bad otherwise I would love to continue with this a-z list.

    Hi David,
    Thank you for your comment. I am sorry that you faced some issue.

    Can you please PM me the website and show me a case where you are having the Spreading out issue. No other customer has raised such an issue till now.

    Also I am not understanding the relation with Google ranking and the plugin. What happened to your home page, that it showed only the categories? Where was your ad listings? Also please explain how is google crawl related to it.

    Please PM me.

    Thank you,
    Omar.

  • davidwoolf

    Hi Omar,

    I am not able to show you what I mean, as I already removed your plug in many months ago.

    When your a-z list, (one line) opens up and spreads it’s entire content, the effect is similar to the “category hover” that you get with classipress when you hover over the “categories” in the navigation link, you see all the categories, in my case hundreds, all on one page.

    Besides being terrible ugly for the visitor to see, especially with the green background, it created a huge “chunk of content” on the top of EVERY page, this is why it effected my Google rankings, as a HUGE page with hundreds of links on the top of each page is spam.

    I am VERY glad to hear that I am the only one that has complained, it will have to remain a mystery what caused this in the first place, as I said, in my browser, it always looked perfect.

    I discovered this when several customers brought this to my attention, and when I searched for pages in Google that were “cached” I saw that yes, in fact they were cashed with the “category list” spread out.

    I think this was about 6 months ago, since then WP has been updated several times, so has CP, and I think your plugin has also been updated, so hopefully all this is just HISTORY.

    Hi Omar,

    Please look above at the history of our discussion.

    I really like your plugin and would like to use it, especially that I paid for it.

    It is the BEST way to display and access the categories.

    Just checking with you before I activate it, that up to now “no one has ever made a similar complaint”.

    Just checking with you if it is safe before I use it again.

    Many thanks.

    Thank you. Glad that you liked the plugin.
    To show it in all pages, there is an option in the settings page.
    After installing the plugin, you will be able to see a settings option under Category List for Classipress in the Admin dashboard. Please do the settings there.

    Hi Omar,

    Your plugin installs itself in the header, below the navigation bar.

    I have another plugin, that installs itself in the exact same location.

    Your plugin is BELOW the other plugin.

    How can I make your plugin go up, ABOVE the other plugin?

    Thanks.
