WP 2 CL Classifieds Theme turns an ordinary wordpress installation into a classifieds listing site modeled after craigslist. Just install wordpress, upload WP 2 CL Classifieds, activate WP 2 CL Classifieds and you’re well on your way to having your own listings site. Setting up your listing sites works the same way as setting up your wordpress blog. Add categories for your listings site the same way you add categories to any ordinary wordpress blog. The regions (countries, cities, states) are wordpress pages. You add a region by creating a page with the region name. WP 2 CL Classifieds will be able to organize your listings according to the location under which they are posted thereby making your pages like region categories that can be browsed like ordinary wordpress categories.
WP 2 CL Classifieds Theme uses the features already built into wordpress to turn your wordpress installation into a classifieds listing site like craigslist. Users register on your site using the regular wordpress registration. Of course you need to make sure you have registration allowed in your wordpress settings, and you need to set the default user role to contributor. To help you control spam and better organize your listings, only registered users are allowed to submit listings. There is a built-in reply to ad system. You can allow or disallow non-registered users replying to ads from the theme options page.
Once a user is registered and logged in, they can add listings the same way they would add a regular wordpress post. The system uses a simple post process to collect the minimum required information to make the post. After the user has submitted a listing, the user can modify the listing at any time using the post editing feature built into wordpress.
