The problem with new classified to growth is about traffic and getting advertiser to post their ad. I suggest content grabber feature for next version of classibase. This is how this feature work:
– Only admin/moderator can use content grabber feature. Admin/moderator input URL in ad posting form, then hit “grab” button to get pre populated content description with associated image larger than minimum image size. Then Admin/moderator choose relevant image to be added, do litle editing description for sake of uniqueness, input contact, category & location then post ad.
– Admin /moderator can associate pre populate listing to current user/dealer.
– Visitor can claim listing for new registration, then admin/moderator appove user with claimed listing.
Pre populate listing feature is important for new site to growth, get traffic and get new user registration for sustainable traffic.
You can see how this feature looks like hotaru cms or bakercms.
