When is the sold ribbon is displayed ?

When an ad is marked as sold.

When is the free ribbon is displayed ?

When an ad price field is 0 (not empty).

When is the AskMe ribbon is displayed ?

When an ad price field is empty (not 0).

What is the USED tag ?

The idea for the USED tag is to tag ads of second hand items.
In the settings page you choose which ad tag is connected with USED tag
and then add this tag to all second hand items.

How to use the discount ribbon ?

1. Add new classipress custom field ‘Discount’ and choose type ‘text box’.
2. Edit the form layout you want and add the discount field.

Users can now edit their ads and write a number in the discount field to show a discount ribbon.

1. Extract the folder into your Wordpress plugins directory.
2. Enable the plugin.
3. Configure in ClassiPress->Ribbons

    currently it’s not possible to charge for ribbon. not sure if/when this option will be available.

  • cdumas

    you’d specify it in your product

    Will this plugin work on a 3rd party child theme?


  • author

    hi lucasatkins,

    it will require custom modifications.
    the functionality will work depending in the child theme calls needed hooks but you will probably need to edit css to fix display issues.

  • gotdonkeys

    Can I customize the ribbons to show the State or Country (location) of the ad poster?

  • author

    hi gotdonkeys,
    there is no such builtin option. this will require you to customize the plugin.

  • Doris

    With this plugin an ad can be marked as sold. Does the plugin add an status field to each ad? Is it searchable? I mean, can a user search something and restrict the search to adds not marked as sold?

  • author

    Hi Doris,

    This plugin doesn’t add any search possibilities if not existed in classipress.
    This plugin also doesn’t add the possibility to mark ad as sold as this already exists in classipress. what it does it only add the ribbon Sold for ads user already marked as sold.

  • elmahdi

    Sorry, i have a new question…
    I understand how the “sold”, “free”, “ask me” ribbon work but the “featured” ribbon, no?
    How it works? can i choose which ad i want to make it “featured”?

    Thanks for your explanation

  • author

    hi elmahdi, this is part of classipress. making ad as sticky from wp-admin will make ad as featured.

    Before I buy the product to would like to know if it’s easy customize. Can i also use other words other than sold and ask? Just in case I need to put what I want.

  • mycontrol

    if you see this then i am desperate to get help

    I’m using cp theme, I really need my website to show on smart devices. i believe u have a solution for this. all i need is for the current website to show
    ad pictures on smart phone/tablet. do u have any solution in plugin etc i can purchase from you. if you can re edit my code for hourly, this will also
    do fine.

    hope to hear from you.

  • author

    hi daxi,

    see the options page screen shot for what you can do there.
    for changing text you can translate the pot file to change the text you want to appear.

  • mllerena

    Hi there, are these ribbons hard coded in Enlgish only?

  • author

    Hi Mike,

    No. the plugin uses a pot file for translation. you can use poedit to translate it to whatever text you want.

  • robertnbg

    if you want ribbon inside image
    .thumbnail {
    overflow: hidden;
    position: inherit;

    span.ribbon.left.sold {
    height: 30px;
    z-index: 100000;

    free ribbon if price 0
    span.ribbon.free {
    height: 30px;
    top: 35px;
    left: -10px;
    right: auto;

    aks me ribbon if price empty
    span.ribbon.askme {
    height: 30px;
    top: 35px;
    left: -10px;
    right: auto;

    so you can change it play with this settings under classipress/classipost options/color where you can add css
