Logbee plugin for Osclass

Stop the press!

Our plugin for Osclass has been reviewed and accepted! 

For the uninitiated, here's what Osclass is:
"osclass is a php script that allows you to quickly create and manage your own free classifieds site. Using this script, you can provide free advertising for items for sale, real estate, jobs, cars... Hundreds of free classified advertising sites are using osclass."

The neat thing is that anyone can develop their own plugins (or themes) for Osclass, giving the system a great flexibility.

So we've decided to provide our own little plugin that would automagically add both the 'log it' button and our meta-tags to the item pages of any classifieds portal based on Osclass.

This means that when a user logs an item into his/her Logbee account, the relevant fields will be pre-filled and the images will be imported cleanly. This makes it (even) easier for the user to keep track of his/her favorites ads, which incidentally increases the probability the user will come back to the portal.

We've first submitted a basic version 1.0.0 that added only the basic meta-tags.

But even before this first shot got approved, we managed to get 1.1.0 out, which also checks whether the Osclass plugins adding specific attributes for cars or real estate ads are enabled. If so, the related meta-tags are included accordingly. The meta-tag for the item's images has been added as well.

So by installing this plugin, any classifieds portal based on Osclass will be instantly optimized for Logbee with no config whatsoever needed.

The plugin will soon be available on the Osclass market, but the impatient can download it here:

Any questions? Shoot!
Either via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Xing or directly per email to support@logbee.com.

I wonder who will be the first Osclass-based portal using our plugin!... Let us know!
