It's looking good... getting excited for the release.UPDATE: Still a couple of public templates missing and I have to restructure the permission definitions for the trader ratings. Also, now that I think about it: it's not really "advertisers" but "traders" that I should have used in the links and phrases
Any who, here's some screenshots for the rating at work:

I wont be available tomorrow so will publish RC1 on Tuesday since a little bit of work is left out with some bugs I just found in the rating system.
Thank you very much it worked perfectlyThis is as expected as the system will first resize the shortest side to the length set in the system option and crop it out to a square so edges will be cut off if it's a rectangle.
Edit the template classifieds_sidebar_block_stats and remove everything in the editor.
Edit the template classifieds_list_item and at the very bottom delete theblock.Code:
<div class="listBlock classifiedStats">
Edit the same template and removeat the top.Code:
<xen:avatar user="$classified" size="s" img="true" class="creatorMini" />
And yet again I failed to publish on time
I no longer trust himI hate to be cynical about this, but the "rock solid release date" for RC1 is now a week in the rear-view mirror, with no update about why it was late, or what to expect next.
This may be the first time a xenforo add-on was abandoned before it was ever released! (joking. sort of.)
But the bigger issue here is that even if a release does finally make it, how can anyone feel confident about using it in a professional context, with this sort of support? Not cool for a commercial add-on ....
Probably for another thread, but I think this is just illustrative of broader problems within the xenforo development community.I have been watching this resource for a while now but too afraid that it will not be finished or supported.
Agreed that there is a definite need for a good classified/for sale mod for commercial forum use and it seems that this add-on is not it.
Hopefully someone will release something soon. I'd be willing to pay a premium for a good product.
The risk is not just blowing $50 on it, unfortunately. I gladly threw in my $50, not knowing if development would ever be completed (I view contributions in this was as something of a kickstarter -- if it works, great. if not, not... it is seed money to get the developer off on the right foot.)I really need this type of addon and need to start looking at testing it to see how useable it is in its current stage of development however it seems the only way to do this is to pay $50 for it now in beta form but there is some question of whether it will be completed. The risk is blowing $50 on it.
Agreed. There are plenty of excellent devs around the community.We are OT but... this is a too much generic conclusion. There are very good 3rd parties addons on the RM.
