Version 2.0.2 was just released and you should see an update notice in your wp-admin / Plugins panel, if you will not see it within the next 24 hours go to the wp-admin / Dashboard / Updates panel and click the “Check Again” button.

The release includes small bug fixes and improvements it is a recommended update for everyone using version 2.0.0 or newer.

Most likely the first change you will notice is the refreshed wp-admin / Classifieds / Options panel, it includes an updated layout with icons, additionally, the HTML code was changed so the boxes do not unexpectedly move to lower lines (this could be noticed mainly on the translated versions).

Different matching options for Blacklisted Words.

In the wp-admin / Classifieds / Options / Core / SPAM panel you can select between two matching types:

  • Partial (default) – it will disallow posting if a word in the Ad description contains a blacklisted word, for example, if your blacklisted word is “press” then the validator will return an error if the description contains the word “WordPress”
  • Exact – it will disallow posting only if an exact word is matched. For example, if the black-listed word is “press” and the description contains the word “WordPress” then it will not return an error, it would do that if the description would contain the text “Word Press”.

Custom date format for blocks.

In the wp-admin / Classifieds / Options / Core panel you can find a “Date Format” field which will allow you to set a custom date format that will be shown in the Classifieds / List and the Classifieds / Details blocks.

The default date format is d/m/Y, you can customize it to your needs using the variables explained in the WP Formatting Date and Time documentation.

You can further adjust it with the wpadverts/block/date-format filter

add_filter( "wpadverts/block/date-format", function( $format, $context ) {
  // $context is either "list" or "details"
  $format = "Y-m-d";
  return $format;
}, 10, 2 );

The other changes in version 2.0.0

  • FEATURE: Added block pattern that allows displaying Classifieds / Search and Classifieds List blocks next to each other (ideally this should be used on a page template without a sidebar).
  • FEATURE: API changes in the wp-admin / Classifieds / Options / Types panel to prepare the plugin for use with the upcoming Multiverse extension.
  • FIXED: Pagination (in [adverts_list] and Classifieds / List block) not working correctly on custom taxonomy pages.
  • FIXED: When selecting a taxonomy for display in the Classifieds / List block the taxonomy title did not show in the block.
