Expired classifieds

The classifieds module allows for an item to be posted and displayed for a set period of time before the listing expires. Once expired, listings can only be seen by the user who originally posted it and will be archived according to the number of days specified in the Days to Archive setting in the Add/Edit web control.

Users can be allowed to relist their own expired items, before they are archived, using the web control settings below.

  1. Right click on your classifieds folder and select New Content. The Create New Content window will appear.
  2. Click Web Page and then select your standard web page template, click Close.
  3. A new page will be created, give the page a title (eg. Classifieds-archived) and click Save.
  4. In the editable area of the page, right click to bring up the contextual menu. Select Insert Webcontrol and make any changes needed to the web control settings. Click Save, then Submit & Approve.
