On ad listing pages we generally have ad items with clickable title link and thumbnail image. Item's short description, price and other information is not clickable. To make whole ad box clickable use following javascript snippet in your footer.

<script>
$(function(){
 $('.listing tr:not(a),.list_style_simple li:not(a)').click(function(event){
 var $me = $(this);
 var $a = $('h2 a:first',$me);
 if($a.length)
 {
 // go to item page
 top.location.href=$a.prop('href');
 return false;
 } 
 });
});
</script>

Javascript snippet binds action to click event for HTML table row and list elements. Searches for first clickable link inside clicked element and redirects web browser to ad item page.
