Fill in the fields that you need for your category. We present an example configuration.

We set:

  • Category name: cars
  • Price:  free
  • Adding adverts - disable. 
  • Description: New and used cars of all types and brands

As you can see below, we create "Audi" as subcategory and assign it Parent Category "Cars".

If you wonder what is "price points" you will find the answer in this article.

Extra fields

Now it's time to create extra fields. In DJ-Classifieds control panel go to "Extra fields"  tab and click "New".

Provide all the important information.

We set:

Do not forget that each custom field should be assigned to a proper DJ-Classifieds category. One more time open the "Categories"  in DJ-Classifieds panel.

Choose a proper category and go to "Custom Fields tab".

  • In search - yes
  • Search type - checkbox
  • Values: ABS;air conditioning;fog lamp;traction control;immobiliser

This custom field must be assigned to "cars" category in the same way as the other fields before.

Now let's define the custom field: Condition. 

We set:

  • Label: condition

  • Values: new;used
  • Required - yes
  • Show in table and blog view. 

And now the "Search options".

Let's create regions now. In DJ-Classifieds panel click on "Regions"  button.

Choose "new".

We will now create the first location. We set:

Click "Save"  when you are ready.

Now let's create the next location. Click "new" " and set:
