Reference Number

The Reference Number Plugin creates a unique reference ID for each listing posted on your classified ads site, thus allowing users to instantly locate desired listings by unique IDs made up of letters and digits, for example: RF451231.

The Reference Number Plugin may come in handy for various types of classified ads. For instance, if you’re running an online store, the Plugin will help you organize the goods in a user friendly catalog, where each item will be assigned a unique ID. This way, users will be able to instantly locate the needed listing if they have the reference number. Similarly, a user may copy the reference ID and later use it to instantly land on a listing of his choice by using a reference number lookup box. In the same way, he may share the ID with other users to refer them to a recommended listing without the need to initiate a detailed search or copying and sending lengthy URLs.

You get a range of flexible settings in back end to further fine-tune the Plugin pattern. You may either use a listing ID as it is or add automatically generated numbers.

Once the Plugin is installed, you are supposed to configure the settings of the reference number pattern by using the default format where RF represents fixed letters, which will be replaced by randomly generated numbers.
