almost done with forum, few questions
« on: December 02, 2010, 09:17:46 am »
havent really tinkered with permissions and functions of classifieds. i understand basic ezportal without any html or php coding but im ok with it and gonna study it before i upload everything.

*what is a prettyurl and what does it do? i keep installing it and have no idea of it's purpose lol
*how do i let the classifieds listing page pop up as my default page, and not the free listing forum i created
* is it possible to limit list of topics and subtopics in a forum? or have them display side by side in ezportal without any tough coding?
* is it ok to install the smfshop with some subs.php errors with 2.0rc4?


im planning to buy adseller pro and all the remove copyright fees once im done with all this.
* does ad seller pro give me an easy way of putting tons of adds wherever i want in my whole site?

Pretty urls changes the urls for board urls and topics. So instead of http://www.site.com/index.php?board=1 it would be http://www.site.com/myboardnamehere/
And the same for topics
Pretty urls can be downloaded from
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=636

That would take some custom coding to do that. Would you want to use the forum at all or just have the classifieds

Well you could set the number of topics per page I belive for all forums if you want so many topics to appear at a time that should be in inside the topics and post settings in SMF

Have to look at that error that you posted to see if it is safe to continue with the install or if that is a required edit that needs to be made.

It is mainly built for SMF forum itself. But I have had users use it on their site/non smf pages using either php or an iframe with the ad code.

now this is something i had been confused with yesterday(took the whole day and nite creating topics and subtopics lol)
now that i have a forum with the topics i want, i see i can link it to classifieds but i want only the classifieds to show on the front page and
the category just as a section people can click and go into. do you have any idea how i can do this? i dont really need the whole customized page that needs coding, just to rearrange stuff.

yeah decided to scale it down to only auctions privileges now for a fixed annual fee and just the forums to be a public classifieds listing which is for free and paid members, i find its easier just to have a different section for new topics BELOW the classifieds.

im trying to make the forum concept into a public listing and the classifieds program to act as a PURE auction feature.

I see so forums for free listings. Classifieds for paid listings/auctions.
