Hey Guys this is my working site. Since the home page search doesn't consistently work I decided to remove it all together. Has anyone resolved the search issue? It is copywritten and in the process of being Registered and Trade Marked.

I found this one to be a good one.[:)]
Click here to have a look.
Looks good in Internet Explorer only.

I really appreciate the efforts of the desiger. Good work and congratulations to the designer.
I just wonder, why only IE is the option. The same site should look on FireFox also. I am using FireFox 2 and the site
still looks ugly on that also.
Is anything wrong with the css sourceode for Classified or something wrong with Firefox.
Some designers must be having a solution for this.
good going in classifieds

Here is my working site. I did not change much from the original kit but I welcome any suggestions how to improve it.
Since I am a newbe to VWD, it took me 2 weeks to get it working on remote server, but really it takes about 30 minutes to set everything up once you know how to do it.
I would like to thank everybody participating in this forums because it is a great source of knowledge and I would not be able to start it wiothout your help

Thank you for showing us your websites. I have some questions:
1. I cannot see the birdzee's log (or only see the half), I also had same problem for my web site when I tried to put an img file as the log. (I am using IE7).
2. How to change the color to bule backgroud? I opened master page, but I don't know where I can change the color or put some img file?
3. How to add a tap, like "contact us" tap link on "Classifyself" web site?

Very good layout. Looks good in FireFox also.
Can you share the code to show, 3 -4 featured advt on the default page. I do not know, how to show more than one advt.
It would be helpful, if you can share the code of 2 things, which i like here...
(1) Showing more than 3 ads on defaultpage
(2) The photograph is automatically zoomed, when you click on the advt.
Jan 17, 2007 02:39 AM|akent|LINK
Actually need to fix some layout bugs in firefox in particular when displaying text in the left hand box.... hmmm wonder why?
Anyways regarding the featured ads in FeatureCache.cs i added:
// THIS MY PATCHED CODE FOR MULTIPLE FEATURED ADS
// TODO: no benefits of caching need to change it later
public static DataTable GetFeaturedAd()
DataTable AdsDataComponentAdsDataTable = AdsDB.GetFeaturedAdsSelection(5);
AdsDataComponentAdsDataTable.Columns["id"].ColumnName = "AdID";
Try that, and if you do implement caching please let me know i didnt get round to it yet....[:D]
Jan 18, 2007 10:23 PM|paggy4u|LINK
Any chances of sharing this code in VB.net also. If any one else has this code in Vb, then do share here.
Akent, can you pl. clear, whether your code covers the caching ability also. I think, in the past, you were asking this question to marcgel about this solution. I think you must have sorted it by now.
Plus, it will also be nice to share the code to show the zoomed photograph in the advt, when loaded.
P.S.:- If any one can share theior code, it will be helpful too.

I am trying to customize my online classifieds hosted at
Online Classifieds on
Reach Information Portal,
The best thing i have done is have used only one user membership database. I have also hosted many other starter kits like
Small Business Solution and Services Online, and have used only one membership database. So i recommend people to go ahead with it as it will give you a single sign on like experience.

I Love seeing all of the different and exciting implementations of this kit.
Mine has just launched:
Boats In Canada
Has anyone got stylesheets for other browsers (firefox, netscape) they'd like to share?
Feb 11, 2007 11:36 PM|kaniene|LINK
When I click on browse all in your site it only display 50 ads even though you have more than that. Do you know why? My site only display 50 ads also. Does anyone knows why the classified only display 50 ads? And how do you make the classified display all
the ads in the site?
Feb 13, 2007 09:14 AM|kaniene|LINK
I figured out how to display all Ads instead of just 50. The default value for the RecordLimit is set to 50 in the classified kit. To change the default value to the number of your choice ( ie: I change mine to 1000000) do the following:
1. go to search.aspx
2. go to line 128
If you get a chance, check my site and send me feedback.

All Most All Classifieds Website Opens Very Slow, It also takes enough time to move from one to other pages also.
I must have seen almost all Classified Site Posted in this classified Section.
I am really sorry to see that, none of the Classified Opens faster. All the Classified site takes more than enough time to load.
It is also important to see that All this sites are hosted on different reputed hosting companies, with good reputation and speed.
All this hosting companies cannot be wrong.There is SOME BUG somewhere in the classified Code.
I was suggested in the past to make use of HTML controls wherever possible and to stop Using ViewState.
Orkut.com, which is considered to be the fastest site and 5th busiest site, works with the above rules. Its really fast.
Myspace also opens reasonably faste.
With my connection, i can open many sites faster, but NOT Classified.
I would appreciate, if someone finds the bug and gives us a solution .
I also wish to post this thread in bugs section, but only after i recieve confirmation of slow process from other friends also.

How did you get URL's for your catagories.
Instead of www.pagineannunci.it/search.aspx?c=3
Did you do URL rewriting ?

Anyway the site is www.Zebu-Cattle-for-Sale.info
I'm working on another design for a different website, hopefully I'll have that live this week and will post that too.

Hi, this is really nice. do you know how i could find a copy of your system?
Nov 08, 2008 02:00 AM|MarValUS|LINK
Not sure what beta classifieds you are talking about, but the classifieds starter kit can be found at
Nov 08, 2008 09:10 AM|darkknight187|LINK
There are problems with the beta version that is available on the link above.
If you would like the final version, just send me a private message with your email address it.
I will send you the final version.
Nov 11, 2008 03:57 PM|Afriklink|LINK
there is no problem on
if you encounter difficulties let me know
i have it install at http://annonces.sunugalgui.com
Nov 11, 2008 09:31 PM|darkknight187|LINK
Actually there are errors.
I just downloaded as a test to see if Microsoft fixed it, but they didn't.
That link clearly downloads the beta version, instead of the final.
And if you try to use it with images stored in the directory, you can not upload images.
I am sure there are other issues as well, but that's the main one.
There for the link works, but you do not get a working starter kit.
