I am new to Classifieds Starter Kit.
Could someone tell me
1. how to create an admin level account?
2. Is that possible to integrate Classifieds Starter Kit with paypal?
3. Could someone show me the live web site created from this Classifieds Starter Kit?
Thanks in advance,

Hello Peter, and welcome to the forum.
To set yourself as admin all you have to do is follow this link
http://forums.asp.net/t/1110595.aspx (the link to the users.aspx file it at the bottom of the first post)
unzip it and upload the two files to your website, in the main folder where anyone can access it.
(Technically it is in C#, and I use VB but it seems to work fine anyway, so I would just leave the code alone.)
Create yourself a login through your website, just like any user of your site.
Then point to your browser to the users.aspx file, and set your Id as administrator.
Then delete or move the two users files to a protected part of the website, such as Admin folder.
By the way it does not delete the user Id from the classifieds database when you use this tool to delete a user.
It does delete the user and all, but the current count of members displayed in your admin section will be wrong unless you delete the user from the classifieds members table aswell. I never fixed the issue.
Other than that, it works great.
You can implement it with paypal or google checkout, but I'm not sure on the specifics, haven't done that yet.
Just do a search in this forum for paypal, Note: you can do an advanced search of this forum if you leave the search box at the top right blank and just click the magnifying glass.
And I've been developing my site for about a year, that all started with the classifieds starter kit,
Also one of my buddies Ash built his site off the classifieds kit too.
Your site can be as much or as little as you want it to be.
