||Strengths: The way you can design it
Weaknesses: My lack in coding
Details: The company and me have had a few disagreements but we worked on them and now have them satisfied . I have the program and it meets my needs. They have a great program for the money. You have to have some knowledge of coding for me that is what I am weak in.
So if you are looking for a selling program then give it a try I think you will be happy with it.
Review Based On: using demo only
Great Customer Service
Written by Anonymous User (#1738-266) from Santa Paula, CA (Wednesday, December 17, 2008)
||Strengths: Great communication with tech help thru forum and emails.
Details: I downloaded the free version of Rapid Classifieds 3.1 and customized it myself. I had questions about certain features and used the forum 4 times and recieved immediate help and was able to fix the problems. With such fast and accurate service from the author Mr. Alaverdian, I purchased the 3.2c.

Not very current, old technology
Written by Anonymous User (#1487-180) (Friday, November 21, 2008)
||Strengths: Lots of category options.
Weaknesses: Not SEO friendly by today's standards. The templates are horrible, not current.
Details: This software is not good. Contrary to what the 'owner' said below, there is no new features, just patches and a few 'band aids', nothing really new.
The layout is terrible for each one of the templates.
The forum is full of people who don't know how to read, stay far, far, away from this software. And when the author says a year isn't enough time to demo, yes it is, I agree with the dude from Denver.

Once great package now basically worthless
Written by Anonymous User (#1467-243) from Denver, CO (Tuesday, September 30, 2008)
||Strengths: Quick and dirty setup
Weaknesses: No way to easily reskin the application. He hasn't taken the time to update the damn thing in 1 yr
Details: My host recommended this product to me because he used it. It is very lacking in comparison to other directory/classified scripts available in 2008.
The author hasn't (and won't) update this script since 2007.
You cannot skin it easily and forget about integrating it into another site.
Bottom line, this is 2008 and you need to keep up your product. He fell behind. Just look at the few posts in his forum. A year ago, many posts each day, now, he goes a week between posts.
The 'plugins' aren't special, they're basics and quite hard to use.
My advice, for the money, there are a LOT better products out there.

|Rebuttal From Listing Owner: The software is constantly updated, new plug-ins/updates every month or two. And soon consolidated package would be released. To customize skins you need to know css or use one of over 30 available templates. RC has features, which are way ahead of competition. And to refer that something is worthless after one year is really unjustified to say the list. |

||Strengths: Ease of Use, Customizable
Weaknesses: Little sluggish
Details: An amazingly fantastic software package. Great configurability for both novice and expert. I've customized lots of code and use their web interface as well. Application speed could be improved. Nevertheless, high quality classified advertising program. I've tried most every asp classifieds program I could find on the web. THis one is by far the best to date.

Rapid Classifieds Indeed lives up to it's name!
Written by Mark Team from Roatan Island (Monday, June 23, 2008)

||Strengths: Easy setup, good looks, customixe easily.
Weaknesses: Plugins, vulnerable access database without securing by IIS
Details: Easy to setup after upload. Admin panel is good and template changes make it easy to do on the fly mods! If you cannot get this up and running in under 30 minutes then you need someone else to do it for you, it really is that easy. I am not in love with plug-ins but for this good script I can live with it.

|Rebuttal From Listing Owner: Thanks for the comment. Just a side note. MSAccess is the list preferable type of database. You may always switch to MSSQL or MySQL. Or at list move [db] folder behind the root, which by default located at the root for easy setup. Advanced plug-ins are only available for v3.2 though. |

The best free asp application I've ever seen
Written by Anonymous User (#1493-40) from Singapore (Tuesday, July 17, 2007)
||Strengths: Stable, Fast, Many useful functions
Weaknesses: If can add in users rating function would be better
Details: I have run a small webdeisgn and hosting business for many years, and this is the best online free asp program. it provide free version, also provide higher version at a reasonable price. Base on the function, i must said the price author charged is a peanut. if you hire your own programmer to develop such program, it will easily cost you tens of thousands dollars
