When osclass will become the best classified script?
« on: March 16, 2017, 04:31:15 pm »
I have been following and testing osclass for several years and I'm surprised that it is not the best classified script yet due to small details, do not get me wrong, but if I were the owner of this script, would have solved all problems long ago, simply because this is a product that many people follow, and people means money.

the current state of the market with respect to this type of script is as follows.

Osclass is the best writing classified script, unfortunately knowing this has cost me more than $1000. Yes, I have bought all those classified script with a price between $ 250 and $ 500, but that is past, and learning has its price, so i would like to share with you that is the only thing that osclass need to be the best classified ads php script.

1 - Multi-database based city.

Currently osclass allows multisite/ subdomain based (city,regions etc ) in a single database, which is a problem, the minimum error in any table (something very common ), and all the network goes down.

So, the multi-database, is the perfect solution for build a solid network.

2 - Single admin area

Another important aspect, Today, if you want to have an independent database, you have to load the admin area, something, annoying, if you want to have all the cities of the United States ( imagine work with +100 admin areas, is impossible )

Why Osclass need this?

Well, maybe because somebody will do it sooner or later and so many years of work that has osclass, it deserves something like this.

I hope you agree with my opinion, and it would be incredible to know what the creators think.

I was using a multi-country (29) as subdomains for 2 years almost. Nothing "goes down", trust me.

"subdomains" for country or city or whatever, is extremely poorly implemented in Osclass, THAT is the problem. I will not go into details since i would be OT.

1.- Osclass is free and open source, so you are more than welcomed to contribute to the project, make your pull-requests at the github repository https://github.com/osclass/Osclass/

2.- Currently there's a single admin panel, we don't see the reason to use different databases for your cities, unless your website is big, like really really big. And in that case, there are a lot more work to accomplish, because listings and users have to be replicated on several databases/tables. And search will need to be rewrite from scratch too, plugins may not work with this multi-database idea,... of course, it could be done, but most of our users don't require such setup. If you had issues, it's probably your MySQL server (not the database nor the tables), you could have several databases on the same server (we run about 3000 sites on a single server without any issues). Not sure what "very common table error" could be that let the whole site down, but it's not common with Osclass.

the main missing component is a buyer / seller payment system...........  when this becomes part of the main script then osclass will be the best available...  Hoping this can happen soon....
