I like this alot!

It does what it says! Perhaps a way to scroll the image on SOME of the listings would be an improvement. Or a way to charge a fee to have an enhanced scrolling listing would be good.

    Most of the businesses in my country have rather long names:average of 32 characters. The longest name in your demo is less than 20 character (The Samurai’s Sword). Can you please include a 40 characters name in the demo site. I’ll like to see how it looks like.

  • aj270303

    Does this only appear on the home page?. If so can it be customised to run on every other page?.

    I have purchased this and it’s working great. However the pictures look ever so slightly stretched. Is there a fix for this..?

          I have checked out your website and the images look fine, we used the crop option for the thumbnails and it makes them fit the container of the box in the slides.
          For your other question, I will take a look at it tonight, but i would appreciate if you can create a thread telling how you added the sidebar so I can find it easily in the code.
          Also the tutorial will not be lost when I have to empty my inbox
          Cheers

          Hi.

          I deactivated the plugin as i have a problem with the header menu. (Not related).

          When i re-activated the plugin the widget is not there.

          Help 🙂

            Hi aj270303: I have checked your website widgets dashboard, the widget is there.
            You edited the header , so you erased the code I added yesterday, for this you cannot see the new sidebar although I have asked you to keep that piece of code I added in functions.php and header.php , so i has nothing to do with the plugin or the widget because the widget is there.

  • aj270303

    ohhh yeah apologies, there is a problem on the header when you add a banner ad. For some reason the header menu bars Homepage tab drops out of sync with the rest..?.

    I tried to instal the latest dev build to see if it fixes it but yep you guessed it, it hasn’t.. I’ll replace the code. many thanks. Pls also see your pm’s.

      If you get the codes, so no worries, You can update the files and whenever you finish add them there.
      I am glad it’s resolved.

    I want oly the “featured listings” to slide, not all of them. Thats what I mean…

      The slider is making only the featured listings to slider, it includes only the featured ones, not the regular listings.

      Hi Mark,
      It was supposed to be updated lately,yes but we held it up for while.
      I will rush my team to – at least – release the second vesion which was ready since so long. The guys wanted to give something big to not update it frequently and only include the major updates.
      I’ll keep you posted.

    Hi

    I got a problem with this plugin.

    If no featured ads are available then this slider does not show and neither does the map on the homepage.

    If I delete the slider widget then the map is displayed on the homepage again.

    Please help why this is happening?

    Thanks

    B

    • badmaash

      Okay so I moved the slider widget below that map widget and the map shows even if no featured listings are available.

      Why does having the slider above the map cause problems when no featured listing are available?

      Thanks

        Hi,
        if you don’t have any featured listings, don’t add its widget because it will show nothing , only the arrows and this breaks the map bellow.
        Use the slider only when you have featured listings to show.
        Regards

  • aj270303

    I have a multisite setup. I made one ad featured on the second site but no slider appears. Do i have to have more then one featured ad?, or is the fact it’s multisite means i have to add code or do something?.

    • author

      Hi Mark,
      The plugin works with MU. You have to add at least 3 featured listings for them to slide properly.
      each site is treated as separated site, if you place the widget to the site 1, the slider appears in the site one front end.but the site 1 must have featured listings at first place.
      Regards

    Is this slider ever going to have infinate scrolling

  • utahseopros

    Will this work with the “Directory” child theme? I’d like to use this style for the featured listings in the same way as well.

    • author
      spartac

      Utahseopros,
      Directory theme has its own slider which comes from the same plugin.
      But yes it works with directory theme. We are actually preparing an update for it which will be released in couple of days, it will include few minor bugs’ fixes and an enhancement to make this plugin works perfectly with directory theme.

      Cheers

    Hello, does this work with “mapsuprime” running on the pages as well. I am not sure that is what the app is called, but it is on the top of the page here:

      Hi,
      Yes,The featured slider works together with the mapsupreme.
      Both are plugins for vantage and they can be used as widgets to be placed on the header sidebar.
      Regards

      • reservestudyorg

        I purchased the item and tried to move the zip folder out of my “downloads” folder. Vantage/Wordpress rejected the instal twice. I repeated the download, repeated the instal, this time directly out of the download folder. It worked.

        HOWEVER, now the vantage theme is giving me an “internal error” 500 message, “Internal Server Error” 500

        “The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

        Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

        More information about this error may be available in the server error log.”

        Usually these error messages go away after a couple of hours. It has been almost 3 now. I will try again in the morning unless you have suggestions.

          Hi Resevestudyorg:
          This is something related with your host !
          how many featured listings you have?
          if possible create a new thread in the plugin’s forums so we can follow up with you.

  • dforsythe

    Hello! I would LOVE to buy this plugin.. but I need it to only display one particular category rather than featured listings. Is that possible?

    • author
      spartac

      Hi dforsythe,
      It’s very possible but no option available for now. You’ll have to edit the query function to fetch the ads from that category instead of the feared listings.
      The code is not encrypted so you can apply any changes.

    Is it possible to show bigger pictures, by changing a parameter or some code? It seems to me a little small.

      Hi
      Yes it’s possible to show bigger images but still requires some custom mods (php ones) it’s easy but still take some time.

    This causes a conflict with site navigation.

    If this is activated, on the page buttons at the bottom, clicking on next does NOT take you to the next page. It does NOTHING. If you de-activate this plugin clicking on the next button take you to the next page as it should. Running latest Vantage theme with latest Bfinder.

    there is a something wrong with touch slider.

    touch slider advertise listings that have purchase a feature plan on vantage
    2 featured choices:
    – category
    – the whole site

    but here the trick
    when you go to:
    vantage.com/listing/category/categoryname/
    no feature listings are printing
