View Full Version : Feedback on Similar Listings Plugin

May 5, 2014, 09:57 AM
Hi there,
Today we are releasing a new "Similar Listings" plugin, which creates a new box in the sidebar on the
listing details page and fetches similar listings to that new box. We are waiting for you feedbacks here!

The basics seem to be there and works fine.
If in admin I set it to exact match what fields will it try to match up?

Maybe have option to set fields in admin for the plugin to try and match listings upto. But maybe this would only work better for auto sites and not general sites.

For example if I am looking at a diesel fueled car the similar box should show diesels and not petrol if you know what I mean

I suppose though if I had a wider variety of similar listings to choose from it would be more accurate :)

Is there a guide on using this anywhere ? No matter what I am doing I am not getting any results and am left confused ? thanks

?? I get it I think ? This can only show once the item has been selected and you go to view details page ? is this correct ? or can it be shown in sub categories as well / ?

Think I have this all about face / thanks

if this only shows on the details page ? is there an option where i can set things so that if it is a paid listing this does not show and if it is free it will ? also whats the thing with using a big site settings and normal setting as I see nothing there to change any settings ?

i have changed the setting from your demo and placed the block in the bottom. and now i have some questions/remarks:
1. why the block shows always just 3 ads?
2. the block should be filled with ads and it should work like a carousel, allowing users to see fast more than 3 or 4 ads wich are visible by default
3. the listings inside the box should be centered becouse if we will have 4 ads instead of 3, we will still have a bigger space in right side compared to left one.
