Posted on 2006-03-29
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
Can someone recommend a script similar to noah's classifieds...I would like to be able to administer acct registrations (must be enabled by admin) , expiry dates for listings...etc etc...

I would like to have someone who is experienced to be able to recommend a fee/ or better yet free based script with optional support....

Ive scourded hotscripts and another site but cannot seem to find one that i like....If possible as well the script must be capable of running on PHP5 as my server can only support this at the moment...

    It probably depends on your skill level.

    I am a big fan of the Mosets Hot Property which runs inside the free OpenSource Joomla CMS System.  Mosets is marketed as a Real Estate listing script, but is intended for listing anything - read the site for more info (  They also have Mosets Tree, which is useful for any directory-style classification/search.  I've used both products to great effect for lots of purposes, including classified advert listings for a local paper.

    The only other classified scripts I've used are Noah's, which I regularly recommend, and you already know about.  Then there is the Flexinode module that runs under Drupal, which *can* be used for classified, but I haven't done so, although Flexinode is a good product, I've just never had to use it this way.

    There are lots of other classes/scripts out there that can help you, but I cant recommend anything else from experience.  In general the code is quite simple, so unless I used a packaged solution I tend to write this element using my own classes.

    Finally, since you;re asking about listings, I have to mention EDGEIO ( which started up a week or two ago and is a new approach to listings, and something else people are talking about is BlogBuy ( which can be integrated with your blogging system if you use one.

    thx silicon,

    I like noah but i dont have a web server that supports it...also it seems support/updates for noah has gone to the way side which is unfortunate.....

    68classifieds is a great script. Its not free but not very expensive either.

    wanted to mention as well...that it would be nice to have a listing but also be able to have a popup with description for each listing..... and the option to print just the add from there....that would be great if this is part of the programming built in
