How to Yclas


Hello OC friends,

Next to our open source Open Classifies script we also offer Yclas. With Yclas everyone can make a classifieds website without any knowledge in website design. So you don't need to know what PHP is or how you have to make your own design using CSS. Yclas is an idea of Open Classifieds team. We wanted to create a platform that is very user friendly that enables anyone to create classifieds websites.

The following weeks we will show you how easy it is to create your own classifieds website with a serie of "how to's" explaining how to create your own marketplace using Yclas. This week the first one, showing you how simple it is to register on and create the basics of your classifieds site.
