    thanks in advance

    Actually the first thing that you have to do is to buy your own domain name and hosting.

    From this, you will have proper name for your classifieds site and space to host the database and blogging software i.e. WordPress.

    With the hosting, there will be an application will help you to automatically install WordPress without much hassle and fast.

    Then, after set up your WordPress blog, you have to buy the classifieds WordPress theme like above and upload it to your WordPress as there will be Add New Theme button in the WordPress.

    After you have completed all the details required, you will have your very own online classifieds site through WordPress.

    Hope this will help.

    I am afraid that I can’t do it any time soon.

    However, for me, ClassiPress is the best as it is the only theme that actively improved and updated with new features.

    From what I heard, ClassiPress will launch new version at back of November.

  5. Okay, but try and put in your to-do posts list – the comparison will be very useful for many.

    I’ll check out the new version when it comes out.
