Still Tweaking, but impressed and getting there.
Hi all, just built an Equestrian Classifieds
section into my reasonably successful Local Riding
site. Had tried it before using the 68 Classifieds script but found it too cumbersome and overly complicated. Love the fact Classipress is built on WP
, which I'm reasonably familiar with.
My main aim was to ensure the look and feel matched the main site and I think I've managed that by making a few simple adjustments to the Green theme CSS files and tweaking a few other files here and there, nothing too drastic required.
Really like the rating system Dirtbag uses on his Dublin site, so will be looking at how I can use that and will be working out how to move the 'Welcome Visitor login / register' to the sidebar and creating some custom forms for some sections when I get time.
I think the site demonstrates how the Classipress themes can be made to fit whatever look and feel you want.
My main site is quite popular with about 1200 uniques a day and I'm already getting a reasonable level of interest in the classifieds after just a couple of weeks. Will be monitoring how well the classifieds posts do in the SE's and what direct traffic they bring in.
Anyway, hope you like it.
