CP Addons is plugin #1 for monetization of your ClassiPress site.
It allows creating unlimited pricing add-ons with different enhancements for listings.

Plugin Features

  • Unlimited Add-ons can be created
  • The listing owner can purchase new add-ons or prolong existing via a special payment form. There are appropriate buttons on the user dashboard and listing page.
  • The site owner can apply any addon to any listing manually through the back-end listing form.
  • The add-ons can be included to the listing Packages as default features. So the user can purchase an Add-ons bundle with discounts.
  • The add-ons can be included to the Membership Packages as default features for new ads.
  • The add-ons can be excluded from the listing/Membership Packages, so users can’t purchase or upgrade addons within the package
  • Each add-on can have multiple prices and durations.
  • The plugin shipped with a widget with a highly customizable slider where you can display random ads or ads filtered by an addon.
  • Compatible with ClassiPress 3.6.1 and ClassiPress 4.0.0+

Listing Enhancements

Each addon can be configured with a number of features. They will be applied to the listing after addon activation.

  • Extend listing duration – Purchased addon prolongs listing duration on number of days configured in the addon’s settings.
  • Show on Top – Display the listing on the top of other listings
  • Bump period – Allows periodically bump listing on the top (every hour, day, week, as you wish)
  • Custom CSS – Allows applying custom styles to the listing. Highlight with color, bold text, ribbon or the badge – can be added via CSS

Default Add-ons from the box

We’ve added some preinstalled add-ons so you can see how easy they can be configured.

  • Highlight – Highlights the listing with a custom background-color
  • Premium – Sticks the listing on the top of other listings (in search results and taxonomies archives)
  • Bump Ad – Bump the listing on the top once a day.
  • VIP – Displays Ad in a featured slider on the home page.

    Will this work with child themes or just the base Classipress theme?

      Artem Frolov

      It will work with child themes for sure. Although, sometimes, may need some extra styling to make it look best.

    it is possible to place advertisements free of charge for a certain period at the beginning. About the first 14 days free of charge, then the first payment?

    Could you help me with just one more thing, the ad headline has a problem fitting in the ad box? How could I limit the size of the headline, so that it would be better presentable? If you can tell me how to do it I would appreciate it very much

      Thank you Artem! Can you please tell us which files were affected? I just finished adjusting the css styling on the last release and I’m afraid to override them with the newest update 🙁

        Artem Frolov

        Yes, sure, templates/planless-addon-options.php and includes/class-view-process-create.php
        I have a short instruction on how to compare files and folders to see the changes between versions, take a look if you’re interested https://arthemes.org/blog/comparing-files-and-folders/

    Friend thanks a lot for the help, the app was great, I’m just having a problem translating some texts into my language, I found the languages folder and includes 2 new files pt_BR.mo and pt-BR.po, but the texts are not translating , do I need to do anything besides putting these 2 files in the languages folder?

    We are currently running Version 1.1.2 which I know has been updated but we are not finding anywhere allowing us to do that. Its not showing as an option in either the WP Plugin screen or Dashboard Updates. How do we get this updated? Does it need to be removed and added back? Will that disrupt our current advertisers?

    Let me know what I need to do.

    Just created a demo site, where you guys can test CP Addons plugin before purchase https://demos.arthemes.org/cp-addons/.


  • Veronica


    We do have that on there already, I have even just manually had it recheck… Everything is showing as current with no new updates needed, but our CP addons is still only showing Version 1.1.2

      Unfortunately I don’t know what is wrong, not enough info. Maybe this is due to incorrect AppThemes key entered into the Updater plugin, or maybe the key from another account?
      Also, check the plugin folder name, just in case.

      If this doesn’t help, just download new version from your AppThemes dashboard, unzip and replace the folder on the server with new one.

      Finally, I can update the plugin for you on your site, but I would need an admin creds (which you can send via forum private message).


      • arabiansalesonline


        I have tried loading the current version but keep getting a message stating that it has failed so I do need assistance. For some reason I can’t access the PM either? Can you shoot me a note, maybe it will let me respond.



        • author
          Artem Frolov


          I’ve sent a note via PM. If this didn’t help I would suggest contacting the AppThemes, maybe something with your account.

          Good Luck!

    Is it possible with your plugin, to allow ads to be featured for just one week. And then the person has to pay again to extend it, or later could pay to feature the ad again? I wasn’t sure if your plugin allowed a set time for items to be in the featured section. thanks.

    • author
      Artem Frolov

      Yes, sure, you can set duration for each addon. Moreover, you can set multiple Price/Duration pairs for each addons. For example “5 days for $3”, “10 days for $5”, “30 days for $10”, etc.
      Person can extend existing addons or purchase new ones using Upgrade procedure, linked to user dashboard and listing page.
