Thread: What Do You Recommend Flynax focus on Next

    I asked for a quote from Flynax to make an adjustable character limit above 3,000 for the description field.

    For example:

    - Listings: 1500 characters
    - Events: 2000 characters
    - Featured: 4000 characters (Edit: I do not think this is possible)
    - Blog: 10000 characters

    Currently, you can only adjust the character limit for each but only to 3000.

    Edit: A simple solution is to create more than one Description Field for the listing. That way each Description field has a limit of 3,000 characters each.

    So i have now setup my blog with a listing type like joe and pete did.
    How do i disable the contact form on the listing type?
    this listing type is for admin only and i dont want to show the contact form on details page.

    Can this be done?

    As far as I can think, this is the method suggested by Pete.
    Possible he used the News plugin to make his blog?

    Hi, guys sorry for the delay I will quickly show you how I have done this.

    First I did not set up a listing type for the articles. so scrap that idea.

    1. create a listing field called > Post Type < or whatever you want.

    add the following post types to that listing field, I will have (when completed)

    LF > Listing Type
    > Articles
    > Classifieds
    > Events
    > Shop

    this listing field I made compulsory and added to each listing type.

    I then added another listing field called post details

    so now I have

    Title = 160 chars
    Description = 320 chars < keep this small for the description that shows on the site front page etc and use for meta description / search engines
    Details = 30,000 Chars

    I then went into my CSS and changes the max length of the text to 30000 chars ( change to whatever you want ) > https://forum.flynax.com/showthread....editor-options

    Then the last trick is to edit the settings in your admin panel to allow for it to run 30k chars or whatever you set. see the last post in the thread above

    let me show you in a video below. (2 secs)

    again sorry for the delay just super busy right now.

    Pete,

    How did you add photos in the middle of the text?

    Maybe you added an Image Upload Listing field?

    I realized using the above blog "Listing Type" method makes the Flynax "FAQs" and "News" plugins obsolete for some.

    All you need to do is add "FAQs" and "News" categories to the blog or even likely as Listing types on their own.

    As you know, both the current Flynax "FAQs" and "News" do not allow for sub-categories or extra bells and whistles listed below.

    For Example, using the "Listing Type" method you can add FAQs such as:

    Category: FAQs

    - Sub-Category: Buyer’s FAQs
    - Sub-Category: Events’ FAQs
    - Sub-Category: General FAQs
    - Sub-Category: Seller’s FAQs
    - Sub-Category: Services’ FAQs

    Additionally, this method allows you to use the:

    - image carousel,
    - videos,
    - tell a Friend,
    - comments,
    - similar Listings,
    - recently viewed,
    - QR code,
    - Design listing form
    - Etc.

    Also, you can add "Listing Fields" for file uploads for the Blogs, including:

    - .pdf
    - .zip, .rar
    - .doc, .rtf, .docx
    - .xls, .csv, .xlsx

    I am not saying that the Flynax "FAQs" or "News" pages are not useful for some.

    I am saying that there is an advanced way to manage the two plugins for others.

    An admin page where the general template color scheme can be adjusted.

    Also, change the website's logos font size, font colors.

    I don't know. Maybe this page already exists and I just don't know where it is.

    If so, please share.
