Nice layout, seems well behaved, and is easy to navigate. The ad categories might benefit from some tweaking. For instance you have several categories related to housing but they are not grouped together. The lack of a travel related category on an international site is rather glaring. Some of the categories are very broad such as electronic and spareparts, while others are very narrow such as new books. I for one would not want to browse a bunch of ads for cameras if I was looking for a computer. Although it ads a whole layer of complexity, you should consider sub categories to better classify the ads. For example housing category could encompass apartments, houses, student apts, perhaps further broken down by rentals versus purchase.

As you are using English as your primary language, you should ensure that your categories use standard english useage: For example Electronics not Electronic. Generally you will find the plural version of a word is best for most categories.

Good luck with the site!

Thanks wektech.  :yep:

The current categories is top categories. So, the categories with most ads is placed on top most. The official broad categories haven't been displayed yet. I'm still have issues about creating sql queries for creating cascading categories. Soon will be updated.

Pretty clean layout.  Is there a way to set your location/serach to a country and all regions? (Can't tell if you chose the US and a state if you see all states or not since there are no ads yet.)

Yes Tim, now at www.L-Ads.org you can choose a country then select 'All' to display all ads in the whole country.

For the next update, I'll fix the category system.

Thanks.

Hi,
I found your ad in the database and it hasn't been confirmed yet. The confirmation link is sent by e-mail service to your mailbox.

The idea of the site is providing a self service community classifieds ads. You can activate, deactivate (not yet implemented), edit (not yet implemented) with the link provided in the activation e-mail.

I found many pending ads that not yet confirmed. Is the mail go to bulk folder? Welcoming any feedback. :welcome:

thanks.

I noticed that some of the activation mail is going to bulk mail folder. I tested it from my yahoo mail account. Please help us mark the letter as not spam and if you can't find the activation mail, you can contact us at info@L-Ads.org.

Thanks.

Added new geoip function. The site will detect the ip address of users and show relevant ads according to their location.
