    Inactive listing question

    So when a listing is expired. It won't show in search result. But still accessible with URL. And all info, pictures are still visible. How do I stop this? Like blur all info, or hide them.
    Because I share listing on facebook and it still there when the listing is expired.

    Hello,

    Could you create a ticket to look into the problem?

    Hi Rudi,

    You can just go to Flynax demo to reproduce it, go to admincp:
    https://classifieds.demoflynax.com/a...oller=listings
    Set the listing with ID 1 to inactive.

    Then go to that listing url
    https://classifieds.demoflynax.com/m...quattro-1.html

    You will see a notification popup saying:
    The listing is either inactive or expired.

    However all info and picture are still visible, see screenshot:

    This listing is not available on the site in this case,

    it's a normal behavior

    Yes but if the user has the URL, he can still share it on social media like facebook twitter or other website. And visitor can still see it, and contact him. In my case, I have a facebook business page where I occasionally share listing on it. Or I see Flynax has an auto post plugin. Which mean follower can still see an expired listing like regular listing.

    Overall, I don't think an expired listing with all info and pictures still visible with URL is a normal behavior. Or is it just me?

    There is an option that says keep info of expired listings for SEO purposes ? not sure if that has something to do with things ?

    You can hide data for non-active listings via templates > your_template > tpl > controllers > listing_details.tpl

    before:
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.
    add:
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.

    then at the bottom before:
    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.

    Yes, I wonder if chaging the setting Pete refers to will solve the problem?

    Can the original poster confirm?

    Thanks Pete,
    I can confirm that this is indeed solved the problem. It shows a 404 request page not found.

    Thanks Rudi, this hide the page content as well. I can think of a practical use.
