Randomize Homepage Ads is a much needed plugin that fills a gap in functionality on the Vantage V4 theme.
The standard theme’s listings are fixed meaning no matter what type of ad it is, featured, claimed etc it stays fixed according to the date it’s posted.
This is not good for the paying customer. After all who wants to pay to make their ad featured if someone then posts an unfeatured ad in front of it?
This plugin solves that problem.
The featured ads are placed at the top of the page.
Claimed come second.
Also everytime the page is visited the order changes within each section. So for example no one featured ad stays in the same position. They change randomly and so on through claimed and unclaimed. This gives fairness to ad owners as no one ad now has the number one position all the time.
The plugin forms a widget so you can place it on the page as you wish. As this is Homepage only we do reccomend you delete the Vantage Home Latest Listings widget as the ads are fixed.
Take a look at the video to see it in action.
This also works with Directory 4x by Spartac.
