Re: classifieds php software
I don't know of any open-source PHP software specifically for online
classifieds (if you mean like craigslist.org), however if you're not
trying to compete with bigger online classifieds like the one I just
mentioned, you could probably get away with using discussion board
software for that and disallowing replies. It has many of the same
features of online classifieds, and you can give them categories and
forums (sub-categories) to post in. They come with a search feature
that lets you search in a specific area and some useful flood-
Here's a popular one with which you can disable replies, and you can
choose to either force people to register to post or let guests post:
phpBB is not spam-proof, however you can slow automated registrations
by turning on the confirmation code test and slow it down even more
with email verification. There is no perfect way to prevent _all_ spam
registrations, but there is a "mod" (look on the website) through
which I've never seen spam posts on discussion boards I've set up.
That mod only prevents spam posts, though, not spam registrations.
Perhaps there is a registration spam-proofing mod now, too.
