How to set up a Custom URL for Ads 5 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hello,

I have been working with the Advertisement Board component and I have an issue with the setup. I have everything working fine for the most part except for the custom URL.

For example, let's say a user logs into the frontend of the site and clicks to create a new ad. During the file upload process there is an option to set the author and just below the author there is an option for setting a URL.

When the user submits the new ad everything works fine except the custom URL. So, if the user wrote "car-ad.html" as the custom URL link, then when another user clicks on the link (examplesite.com/car-ad.html) in the ad they are directed to a 404 page unknown file.

Is there a way to dynamically generate a webpage that would host the ad based upon the custom URL the user submitted? Is this a feature with the PRO version? Do I need to use sf404sef in order to have this work? Or any further help you can provide is much appreciated.

Thanks, Presto

Hello,

URL - what user type - that some URL where USER have some additional description for this ADS.
That Urls must start from http:// or from https://


For create URLS to this ADS you may use some like that:
{yours site}/index.php?option=com_advertisementboard&back_button=1&Itemid=54&id=3


where "id=3" id for that ADS

if you use ours plugin for XMAP - it will permit create site links maps to all yours users ads

Thanks,
