Quick question, looking at: http://www.dsmtuners.com/dsm-profiles/1999-gsx.12629/
Are things like Year, Model, Build type, things that are searchable?

I noticed at dsmtuners.com you couldn't search the showcase, is that because they changed the name from showcase to DSM Profiles?
Those are custom Item fields and yes, they are searchable via the Advanced Field Search functionality that comes with showcase (which is permissions driven). Searching Showcase is a permission that can be set per user group (they probably have it off for guests).

I was running into problems searching for Showcase items with more than one tag, and found out that Showcase isn't adding Items' tags to their search metadata. All that's necessary to fix that is to add the following to NFLJ_Showcase_Search_DataHandler_Item::_insertIntoIndex:

Code:
if (!empty($data['tags']))
{
        $tags = @unserialize($data['tags']);
        if ($tags)
        {
                $tagIds = array();
                foreach ($tags AS $tagId => $tag)
                        $tagIds[] = $tagId;

                $metadata['tag'] = $tagIds;
        }
}
...and to add another clause ($this->isChanged('tags')) to the if-statement in NFLJ_Showcase_DataWriter_Item::_indexForSearch.

Bob, would you be willing to implement these changes in the next update?

This was implemented a month ago in SC 2.7.2 (https://xenaddons.com/threads/is-it-possible-to-search-multiple-tags.2413/).

btw, in the future, you need to post stuff like this at the dedicated Support Site (https://xenaddons.com/#showcase-support-forums.33).

This could work as Classified ad?
It is not designed for that purpose and does not have any of the basic classifieds functionality that one would need, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you plan on doing a lot of customization.

Yes that's what i mean, use like basic integration and add or modify functions. Better this, than to start from scratch..- dont you think ?

If all you need to do is list items for sale, it can do that. You can have categories and custom fields, and add photos.

However:
• You can't have 'want to buy' listings in the sales categories
• There's no way to process payments or actually sell something with a 'buy it now' button
• There's no way to mark items as sold/shipped that would allow you to filter them out by default
• There's no feedback system.
• There's no store-like layout that would display prices on the listings.
• You can't easily filter by price.

That said, there are no other options, so it may still be worth trying, as long as you're sure you'd never want to use Showcase for any other purpose.
