Our Simple Classifieds Script is designed for anyone to start their own version of craigslist. It works 90% like craigslist but loaded with additional features and functions.
Simple Classifieds Script is a powerful, feature rich, easy to use, turn key classifieds script with focus on local communities - globally. Written in PHP, one of the most available and affordable scripting solutions on the web and powered by the pouplar MySQL database system,Craigslist like Script works on the idea of providing a meeting place for buyers and sellers of a community: very much like the most popular classifieds sites out there on the web like Craigslist or GumTree. We would hate to call it a Craigslist like because although the basic idea evolves from Craigslist, Craigslist like Script, Classifieds has got its own unique specialities. With quick and easy installation, configurable and streamlined user interface, and a powerful admin area it has got everything that you wanted from a script of its kind.
