Tell me, what should I do to achieve this?
what you mean by ” what should I do to achieve this?”
If you have already bought plugin then you should follow the guide :: http://www.wpwebs.com/demo/ad-listings-classipress/classiplaces-guide/
I seem to be having a lot of trouble setting up classiplaces…I was told by Vipul that certain aspects of it does not work…I spent 29 dollars on this plugin. I gave Vipul access to my site and still he could not get the classiplaces plugin to work….Am I the only one have problems with this?….And I should not be blamed for it not working….it is the only plugin activated on my site…..I am starting a Christian nonprofit and I thought it would be a good idea to use classiplaces, but now it seems like a waste of money….I am very disappointed…now I have to change my plans …I will still start the nonprofit, but much to my disappointment, I cannot use classiplaces…and I really like it a lot!….I wanted to have post from all over the country…but now I am limited to post only in one state and one city. I cannot recommend classiplaces as a plug in.
Please share your wp-admin last time and our team will check and set final possibility.
If no success from our end, we have to refund you 29 dollar from appthemes marketplace.
Please email administrator permission user detail to us on email.
I would like to buy this plugin but I have a question first.
Does this plugin support multiplaces drop down for example when user posts and ad and he is in a country like USA.. if he chooses USA as country then below it a drop down of states, if he chooses California and below it a drop-down of cities like Los Angeles then below Los Angeles a drop down of estates etc..
Can one add places drop downs via this plugin..
As in a country has drop downs of states below states are cities etc all connected under one parent form
Hi Steve Bunde,
You are talking about Post An Ad form which is not part of the plugin and related to our plugin. So your requirement to add country, state and city selection on post and ad form is no a part of our plugin or we are not planing to do it in future for now.
Do you know Any classipress plugin that can sort out the issue of state city country? Car make model? If u know kindly refer me.. Please.
you added delaware and india to the classiplaces listing…I even have a specialist connected to blue host look at what you have done and even he could not figure it out….and I pay him monthly…..how did vipul add the countries and states…..i have two countries and 2 states…..how did you add them…???? you keep saying it works…but even a paid worker could not figure it out…and he specializes in word press plugins….I am ready to give up!!!..I am getting frustrated here….
Why frustrated here because it is automatically added from ad details.
Please add new & new ads from different address and see the location list.
You will get it how this working.
I am convinced that your plug does not work…and you did not take the time to explain to me how you put in the states and city…I will not buy any plug in under the author or seller Vipul in the future..God Bless….and you can keep the 29 dollars….even though I was promised a refund…..what a disappointment.!!!(Even the developer from blue host that specialized in word press was waiting for you to explain how you did it…we did a computer share and you looked on my screen and could not see how you did it…. and you still wont explain.-you went in through a back way TAKE CARE!…)
Please add new & new ads from different address and see the location list. I also added new test ad from front end “POST AN AD” button in menu.
You will get it how this working.
Plugin collect ad address details and display city state country according.
Also don’t forget to clean cache from wp-admin because cache plugin already installed with your site to see latest location added.
How to make for cities different Meta description?
How to make for cities different Meta description?
Hi dangerous, Alex,
There no Meta description setting for country, state and city because all pages are dynamic and there is not specific place to manage SEO settings. So we have added only TITLE for that. What kind of Meta description you suggest for that, your idea are welcome and we will add if applicable and suitable for plugin settings.
My requests for improvement, if there are additional ideas, I will add. Thank you, for that you are trying to improve the plugin.
1) The best option would be of course if you can make create an options for a description for each city. This plugin would be priceless for the SEO site.
Add a desirable conclusion of the city in the “bread crumbs”
The next improvement concerns the block of cities in the mega menu
Option in the mega menu output in a single unit. For example, first you go to the block Country you click on it and then – select the block – area – further the city. What it does: Saves space in the mega menu in one single unit, convenience: if there are a lot of cities (for example me can not to find in the block shown in the screenshot my city http://i.shotnes.com/a/08/18/screenshot_6850.png ) because, in one block, there are all the cities of the whole country, but can be done both as on this site, see the video
Your plugin Url does not translate into on Latin letters, the others of the plug-ins translate everything except your plugin. Screenshot from above.
Tell me, should it be so? Or should they be both green?
Actually you should get the shortcode as per display and create atleast one page using that shortcode otherwise plugin will not work properly. So better is you should user all 3 shortcodes for country, state & city and create 3 pages for all.
Hola, El tema de mi paginaweb es Classipres 4 y me gusttaria saber si esta compatible con Classipress 4 o solo para Classipress 3.

tambien si lleva todos tos paises del mundo con sus estados incluidos.
por favor aclarame esto. para decidir.
Espero tu respuesta, muchas gracias
Yes this plugin is working ok with ClassiPress version 4. This is the updated version of plugin you can get download from dashboard.
Hello Vipul. Some questions:
How Classiplaces look on mobile phones?
Will it work ok with Profiler?
HI Hector Guevara
I think you should check the demo to confirm your question.
You are not the best salesman. Right?
Have a great day.
Hi Vipul, is the plugin still maintained? You mention SEO friendly in the description but in reality 2 things are happening separately:
Let’s say I choose the city Beverly Hills –> slug= http://www.wpwebs.com/demo/classipress/city/beverly+hills/
Then I click on the first ad that shows up in that list: slug= http://www.wpwebs.com/demo/classipress/ads/ferrari-f430-like-new/
Why cant it be http://www.wpwebs.com/demo/classipress/city/beverly+hills/ferrari-f430-like-new/ ?
or just http://www.wpwebs.com/demo/classipress/beverly+hills/ferrari-f430-like-new/
Hi Fanatic Web,
Yes you are right and it was not good SEO and we correct it and you can get updated plugin from dashboard.
Your demo still shows the same results that I flagged
Does your plugin actually create new taxonomy for different places (Country, State, City) and does it allow the Users to post by choosing one of those places and their values?
Otherwise I don’t see the point of your plugin if it’s just a matter of inserting shortcodes to display the list of places, since I can do this by simply adding a Menu link that points to the tags related to those ads.
HI Fanatic Web,
Our plugin never create any taxonomy for places (country/state/city)
It just use the places added with ads and get collect it via plugin code.
Make virtual URL for places and on that url as per plugin settings of page template with plugin shortcode pages, display pages which only display ads as per selected places. Which is not actually exists like posts & pages, it’s a virtual page.
But you can see the display your website filter by locations as per you can see at our demo site.
Thank you for the quick reply Vipul, so if I understand correctly, it will pull the value of country or city field from the Ad and adds it to the navigation menu based on shortcodes? Is there a demo login I can test it live?
I need to bring this up because I was looking to confirm that this can be done:
Let’s say I click on Chicago under Cities, it will load 2 Ads listed in Chicago as seen here: http://www.wpwebs.com/demo/classipress/city/chicago/
But then when I click one of the ads, I noticed the permalink changes to: http://www.wpwebs.com/demo/classipress/ads/lesportsac-ryan-baby-bag/
Is it not possible to make the permalink look like this: http://www.wpwebs.com/demo/classipress/city/chicago/lesportsac-ryan-baby-bag/ ??
I forgot to ask, does the plugin rely on the default custom fields of ClassiPress like cp_city, cp_state, co_country or can I use my own custom fields such as cp_cities because this field is a drop-down field and not a text field.
