Price is Negotiable – a sign in the ClassiPress listings

Tested on WordPress 4.2 & ClassiPress Version: 3.4

Price is Negotiable – a sign in the listings – is one of my first customizations for ClassiPress and still a most wanted feature. Your site visitors will see a sign under the price tag showing if the price is negotiable. It gets activated due a checkbox by the owner of the ad while filling out the ad details.

This improved tutorial shows you the wpMorphed way how to get this accomplished and working on your responsive ClassiPress site.

You like to see a demo first? Go to my demo site and checkout the look:

You like the idea? Here we go:

We need to edit 1 php files and our style.css:

  • content-ad_listing.php
  • style.css

As usual, we don’t want to touch the original files from ClassiPress. So the first thing we do is upload a copy of the original content-ad_listing.php  to your child theme folder! That one we start to edit. You can do it local our using your editor in your admin area => Appearance.

      Hi Marius,

      Sorry, i don’t understand what you mean with “make it be the announcement of another color”. Please explain more. Thanks

      So you are talking about the featured background gradient? That’s just some css. Maybe i will add this inside an existing tutorial. Thanks for your idea.

    Hi Rolf,

    i just want to know how to make “Price is Negotiable” only for the single-ad-listing responsive and not for the loop-ad_listing.

    Thanks in advance

  12. Alain December 28, 2013 at 17:23 #

    Please can you open my website with your mobile phone? You will see that the custom field label “Departure time” i added to the loop-ad-listing is now under “Price is Negotiable” and one can not see it anymore. How can i resolve this problem?

    Thanks again

    Another problem: “Price is Negotiable” does not appear in the translated language when opening an Ad from my mobile phone. for instance, the Ad “Douala – Limbé” does not appear in English when opening from my mobile phone, it only appears in french. But when opening it from my computer, i can see it in both languages.
