The plugin is great but for one thing… The related ads show up above the contact/map widget on mobile. Is there any solution for this?

Great plugin and easy to install. I had to make some adjustments for it to look like my childtheme, but it was easy to modify. It would be great for future development if you could choose to only show featured listings as related ads. But all in all a fantastic plugin.

    what if I want related ad in same area or near the area would it work with this plug in.

    • author

      No : if is it related is because it need to be right under the description of the ad.

      Also we use ClassiPress core for that reason Related ads need to be
      directly under the instant reading ad to catch more the user and
      increase the possibility to check another ad in the site and again and again…..

      ps:@ Levt Thx

  • tschando


    Yes, really nice plugin. I just bought it. I’m wondering if it would be a difficult issue to compare by custom fields? Any idea on that?

      Tschando Thank you
      I’m wondering if it would be a difficult issue to compare by custom fields

    I noticed you used this for real estate. How does this work for real estate? Similar 2bedroom properties will pop up if the user is searching for 2 bedroom properties? (1bdr, and so forth?)

    • author

      3 ways to find related ads:
      – Categories (exact categories)
      – Tags
      – Tags + categories

      If you attach tag to ad:

      • 1 bedroom
      • 2 bedroom
      • 3 bedroom

      yes it will pop up
      when a user checking ad that contain 2 bedroom. Related ads will
      display ads that contain only 2 bedroom
      The same principle is used with categories.
      If there are no other ads in that categories or tag the plugin will display

    Good day. The words Related Adds, they can be translated to spanish?, How can they be translated?.

  • marcellino

    Nice plugin, but not responsive. Sorry for that. Develop it to responsive and I will but it. Good luck.

    • author

      Hello Marcellino,
      ClassiPress default template is fully responsive! It uses default ClassiPress styles!

      Custom template is not responsive by default, but it can be easily transformed by changing fixed width values to relative values:

      .tpl-custom .related-post-block { width: 95%; margin: 0 0 10px 0;padding: 13px; border: 1px solid silver; border-radius: 6px;background-color: #fff;}
      .tpl-custom .related-post-block .post-right { float: right; width: 74%; }

      A New version will be uploaded for fixing Grid viewing. See demo corrected now

    Hey mr green

    I’m wondering (and hoping) if you are considering to filter by custom fields? Any plans for that in the near future?

    Best, tschando

  • adnanuaedubai

    I am using this plugin but i am not happy with this. It show the related ads by categories but its does not show latest ads on the top of related ads. I want new ads first come up in “related Ads”, Please let me know if you have solution.

    • author

      Hi Dubai,
      Thank you to use it.
      I want new ads first come up in “related Ads
      So when a user browse listing eg :car directory
      the related ads will be the same for each car in that directory ‘yes because is the new ads’
      Definitively no.
      in mode Random all ad are equal !All have the same chance to be display.

      filter by “tag” or filter “by categories” or filter by “tag & categories”
      give you many possibility depending how you organize your site.

      On list:
      – filter by custom fields.
      – and to go out a bit of the context of Related ads display : sticky first.
      Another chance to handle more possibility of sale when user buy the Sticky options.
      eg : display in slides-show(like ClassiPress does originally)then display inside single post as Sticky Related Ads


      • No frustration here: in cp-related-ads.php
        line 229 change Rand by ASC
  • adnanuaedubai

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you very much for the details.

    Beautiful plugin!

    I try to change the custum tpl ads but it don’t work!

    I have to add this code:
    ID, ‘cp_approved’, true ) ) echo ‘‘; else echo ”; ?>

    ID, ‘cp_price_negotiable’, true ) ) echo ‘‘; else echo ”; ?>

    ID, ‘cp_ad_sold’, true) == ‘yes’) echo ‘‘; else echo ”; ?>

    ID) == true) echo ‘‘; else echo ”; ?>

    For showing an approved sign, an negotiable sign, a sold ribbon & a featured ribbon.

    How can I implement that?

    Thanks 😀

    Can you tell me, please, how can I do that, a code I can insert in taxonomy-ad_tag.php.

  • rinormazreku

    I wonder if you could change the algortihm to “relate ads by category and city”. Would be amazing if it would work! very satisfied with the feature ads btw!

    Question. Is there a way to get this to post after the comment box? Or would this not be recommended. I’m trying to see what would look correct if I’m trying to view comments on the item but I’m seeing other related ads.

  • aquirio

    Great plugin.
    Easy to install and easy to use. The result is very good.
    I just would like to ask you if it will be possible in a next release or by modifying the code to filter the ads on the sub-category basis.
    Thanks again.



    Great plugin! everyone should need this.

    can we search related ad in same city, state or country ? example: if someone looking job in “New York” how we can show them related ad in California.

    thank you

  • usedhousehold

  • tstrong

    Hi, I’ve just brought this plugin and i think its great! However the price is only showing for my first Ad and not for others. Also the price on the 1st Ad is showing the wrong price for the advert. Can you help me fix this?

    Kind regards
