Does anyone have experience with any of the WP plugins for entering/listing classified ads.
For the current project, the features/aspects are:

- organizational-member posts; public views
- need categories (hierarchical), ex:
    Services
         HireMe: Sub Contracting Jobs
         HireYou: Need to find a subcontractor
    ForSale
         Residential Parts
         Commercial Fixtures
         (lots more)
- Display by category;  display by fulltext search results
- Expiration date
- moderating

We may end up doing our own MySQL db and PHP code for the above, but at a minimum would like to utilize the WYSIWYG WP editor for classified ad creation/editing

thanks!

Will,

There are several good classified ad plugins available.  Are you looking for free only or would you entertain a premium plugin or plugin/theme combo?

premium okay, we have our own theme.
This is just one facet of a very large organizational site.

Okay, try this one to start:

http://www.awpcp.com/

There is a free version of it at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/another-wordpress-classifieds-plugin/ and the free version may do enough to satisfy you.

If not, the custom path may be the way to go and you will be working with Custom Post Types to get the functionality you want.
