    I only had 1 add in there when I launched and that was a 'test / example ad'.

    I launched through the support of a Facebook group (where I was talking with users about what they would want in a trading platform).

    So I had members of the group support me by adding their ads to the site, within a couple of days I had my first 30 ads. From that it grew.
    If my post was helpful in anyway, please give it a like or a thank you.

    Thanks, I was wondering if it would be possible to add bbp-messages to the side bar instead of frontend pm ??

    I asked the dev of frontend pm for bbpress support, he's replied once and nothing since.

    I saved your URL from another post about Social Pug. I am having the problem that my logo is being shared instead of the item image, on Facebook. I did turn off meta tags in the plugin. Why is this happening? my site is www.farmoverstock.com. Your entire site is fabulous. I am studying everyones Q&As. Thanks for the help! Linda

    Also how did you add a chat room? That sounds like it could really be a good thing for my type of site! Again, awesome site!- L

    Hey Linda,

    The logo being shared was actually due to a setting in the dlvr.it service I was using which automatically pulls the posts from my RSS feed. I switched a few settings in there and I've not had any problems since.
    I can't really help with the social pug plugin, probably best to speak to them.

    With regards to the chatroom I used https://iflychat.com/ but stopped using it because there was mobile compatibility issues.

    Love your site Dale.
    just wondering, have you re-implemented this since the posting a few years ago?
    I am pretty keen to add a PM type functionality to my website instead of the standard contact form.

    Thanks, it was a full custom job, used ClassiPress as the base, then just built a child theme from scratch.
    Spent probably around 3 months on it on and off in the evenings, with probably a month or so of that time not doing anything overall.

    Hadn't planned on selling it no, as its quite bespoke to my site. Yes there are elements I guess where could be make into a custom theme, but to be honest I think the marketplace is a little dead and not worth the effort to turning it into a general theme for everyone.

    This is one of the reasons I've not pursued a private messaging system plugin I was going to make with FEP as the base (had an agreement with the owner). I don't think there is enough customes in the marketplace to make it worth while.



    Ok, so I've not got time to write up the tutorial, but here is MY custom code to use FEP with ClassiPress (my actual version of the plugin has more customisation completed but this will get you started).
    This works with Front End PM v4.6.

    In your functions.php file you need to add this block of code:

    PHP Code:

    //---------------------------------- PRIVATE MESSAGE SYSTEM FORM --------------------------------------
      function new_message_fep_shortcode($atts){
         global $user_ID, $post, $wp;
         
         $token = fep_create_nonce('fep_message');
     
         $to_id = $post->post_author;
         $to = get_the_author_meta('user_login', $to_id);
         $current_url = home_url(add_query_arg(array(),$wp->request));
     
         ob_start();
         ?>
         <form class="form_contact" action="<?php echo esc_urlhome_url'messages/?fepaction=newmessage' ) ) ?>" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
              <input type="hidden" id="fep-message-top" name="message_top" autocomplete="off" value="<?php echo get_the_author_meta('display_name'$to_id); ?>">
              <input type="hidden" id="fep-message-to" name="message_to" autocomplete="off" value="<?php echo $to?>">
                   
                   <label>Subject</label><br />
                   <input type="text" id="enq" name="message_title" placeholder="Subject" maxlength="65" value="" class="text">
                   <div class="clr"></div>
                <label>Message</label><br />
                <textarea id="enq" name="message_content" class="text"></textarea>
           
            
            <input type='hidden' name='message_from' value='<?php echo $user_ID?>' />
            <input type='hidden' name='parent_id' value='<?php echo $parent_id?>' />
            <input type='hidden' name='token' value='<?php echo $token?>' /><br/>
            <input type='hidden' name='redirect' value='<?php echo $current_url?>' /><div class="clr"></div>
            <button type="submit" class="fep-button btn_orange" name="fep_action" value="newmessage">Send Message</button>
        </form>
        <?php

        $newMsg 
    .= ob_get_contents();
        
    ob_end_clean();
        echo 
    $newMsg;
        return 
    $newMsg;
       }
      
    add_shortcode'new_message_fep''new_message_fep_shortcode' );
    In the code above for this section: <?php echo esc_url( home_url( 'messages/?fepaction=newmessage' ) ) ?>
    You need to replace 'messages' with the name of your page with the FEP shortcode on.
    eg www.yoursite.com/private-messages/ would mean the above code would be <?php echo esc_url( home_url( 'private-messages/?fepaction=newmessage' ) ) ?>

    Then you need to open the sidebar-contact.php file which iirc is in your classipress/includes folder. (I've done things differently on my theme).
    You will need to remove the code for the contact form and replace it with: <?php do_shortcode("[new_message_fep]"); ?>

    I think that's everything off the top of my head.

    Hiya,

    I don't frequent these boards anymore. I'm currently in the process of upgrading the site to a new theme (which has a lot of the custom functionality I built, already included). Once I've finished this locally, I'll be replacing my site.
    If my post was helpful in anyway, please give it a like or a thank you.
