||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.

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

This guy is a Genious
Written by Anonymous User (#1790-365) from India (Sunday, December 24, 2006)
||Strengths: Most Comprehensive Classified Ad System
Details: I have been using this software since last 9 months and if you are looking for a software for classified systems then look no further.
The developer is a genious and if anyone says it is bad must be a competitor and not a user because it has everything what one can think of to start a classified ad system and if I have to rate him it should be 10 stars and not 5.
This software is worth every penny spend.

||Strengths: Excellent email and forum support, Very well designed .asp based site
Weaknesses: need a more robust forum, option categories need better validation options
Details: After customizing my RC 3.2 application, I inadvertantly left some HTML TAGs inside one of the content management templates. This led to a difficult problem that did not show up as an error. After emailing the support team, the problem was discovered immediately when the tech person viewed my source code online. I had a few other self induced programming glitches that they were very happy to resolve for me quickly and efficiently. These guys really go out of their way to give you fast and reliable support. Great product, well worth the money!

very slow aplication
Written by Anonymous User (#1361-68) from Luzern, Switzerland (Saturday, November 11, 2006)
||Strengths: never found out as too slow
Weaknesses: very very slow application
Details: when compared to other applications that I use regularly, this one takes forever to complete anything, so never had the chance to try the other features

|Rebuttal From Listing Owner: Classified is running on too many sites to mention without any speed problems. May be you had to investigate your site server for performance or outages before posting inaccurate information. |
