The first week of October is marked with a new release of the classified software from WorksForWeb, namely, iAuto, iRealty, and iLister. Version 5.1 contains a number of new features along with dozens of improvements and enhancements.
One of the most important additions to the functionality of the software is the ability of registered users to add comments to listings and to post answers to comments left by others. Being one of the social media enhancements, it allows website visitors to share their opinions on items/properties featured in listings, hopefully helping other visitors make the right choices.
Notification about adding comments or answers can be set for administrator and users. The admin can keep track of all new comments, or disable them. The admin also reserves the right to pre-screen all new comments if desired, and even reply to such comments. The same is also available for rating comments.
A new function, “Permanent Link”, is implemented for comments. This function assigns a permanent link to a particular comment which can then be used to refer to this comment. Read more about Listing Comments.
If inappropriate content is found on the website in listing details or comments, any visitor may inform the website admin about it. Such comments or listings will then be removed or edited. This will allow visitors to cooperate with the admin in maintaining the website as abuse-free and no-spam/scam area. Read more about Report Improper Content.
One of the existing customers contributed to the development of this new function by expressing the need to control the quality of pictures added to listings. Based on his feedback, WorksForWeb developed with a new setting. The admin can now set the image quality for listing images. Increasing image quality will increase the file size and vice versa. This feature is instrumental in improving the overall image quality of website. Read more about JPEG Image Quality Tool.
To protect a website from spammer attacks and to ward off unwanted visitors, WorksForWeb added an IP Blocklist Manager to all of its classified scripts. The Blocklist Manager controls website access from specific IPs or IP ranges. The Manager functionality allows the admin to carry out advanced IP sorting and editing tasks, keeping the website protected by an added layer of security. Read more about IP Blocklist Manager.
