This Feature can bring more revenue from a single website. [Yes]
i need to make my classified kit more popular and more functional by adding Cities to it.
I am not talking about adding Cities to location. I think the other way round, giving importance to citywise preference.
I need the user to Select a City for Posting an advt, and then he can work throughout with that city only. He can select a ciy first and then view all the advertisments related to that city only.
He should select another city, to view all ads for that city.
I also want user to search an advertisment immediately with ID.
The ID should be in incresing manner, and should be unique in database. Whatever city it may be.
the ID should never be same. It can be CA123 for california and NW123 for Newyork.
Or just plain as 123, 124, 125 etc, ( as it is currently ) whatever the city may be.
The recent new ads can show all the first 10, 20 or 50 advertisments from all cities, giving it a unique touch
P.S:- Is it also possible to add different locations for a different city.
I mean location A, B, C for California
Location, D, E, F for Newyork

You already have that feature implemented in the version that I extended. If you look through the registeration module, you will notice that I included a (a) city field, (b) country dropdown (c) Continent dropdown. All you have to do is make these to be
Then when a member comes to post an AD, we already know who they are and with that in mind, we simply modify the AdsView by simply using a JOIN to the "MemberInfo" table (in my extended version). You can then grab the City, Country, Continent fields and
add them to the ADs detail.
So what happens when the Item to sold is located in a different city from the seller? (very rare, but happens)
Well, no problem here either, you can use one of the extra fields that I included or use the original location field that came with MS version.
The issue you described ablove is one of the requirements I had when when extending the SK.
In my opinion, asking users to enter the city (location) again when posting ADs, and knowing that they gave you same info when they registered is somewhat redundant.
I am actually working on an extended version of the SK for a paying client and the solution I gave you here is what I am implementing.

By any chance, can you work out adding cities like this
This will be more appropriate, after i studied many sites based on this.
you have added city in Registration. While most of them prefers looking ads with City first.
Some does not even ask for city.
All you have to do is place your advertisment in City and you get local areas based on that City.
I would be oblidged if you kindly extend the search box based on ID ( I mean Advertisment ID ).
The search box is of no use currently in any way.
