22. Block adverts
Users can now block publication of the advert. This is handy when they do not want to unpublish it but stop publishing it for a while.
To enable this feature go to Options - Global tab and enable "Allow users to block adverts" feature
Once enabled user can block the advert and it'll disappear from the adverts list. Later when needed the advert can be brought back by publishing it again.
30. Purchase details
When creating a new field for profile you'll use the field's name: "purchase_details" (the label can be whatever you want) each user can edit this field when editing their profile and fill there the contact information that can be used for the other party to contact him (those can be bank data or any other information for the seller/buyer).
This field will be visible only for administrator or the author of the advert. So it's important to set the field to be visible like this.
Here's the screenshot of how the field should be set up:
Now, when user edit the profile - the new field is visible and ready to be filled (on the screenshot you'll see exemplary filling):
