I just tried it 5 minutes and found only bugs. It is so buggy that it is not even usable. You click on "add a new listing" and you are brought to the "advanced search" instead - indeed I wonder how people are using it if you cannot even add a listing!!! Maybe it is because I installed it in a folder (rather than the root folder of the domain) while probably most people install it into the root folder; may be many of these bugs only show up in the "weird" situation where you install it in a folder other than the root. Don't even try it, it is a waste of time.
Summary should mention that: "any download of this software will have the banner or link of your (i.e. advertisers) choice. Think about it, already 45.000 downloads and more than 2.500 sites running. How many potentials viewers your advertisement could have?"
I see all these great comments, and the software does look excellent. However, I installed it and have found it to be very buggy. The captcha for example, half the time it works, half the time it blocks the user falsely. The user gets logged out frequently, must continually log in. Other issues, that apparently the developers don't care about. On their free support forum, the only replies I get are "well it works for other people." or "Just delete the captcha" and no other instructions. Very promising, but very unstable. Great effort by the team but I'd say there's issues they need to fix before using this on a production website.
