Hey OneFora Community,

We're excited to share the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) features for Marketplace listings. We also want to share the roadmap for the marketplace as a whole based on the feedback the community provided from here and the recent survey sent out.

What is a Marketplace?

Marketplace is an initiative to improve our system and features for more transactional-based content. Currently we are focused on listings (classifieds). If you have feedback for us, please drop a note below.

The following features have been turned on OneFora. Please ensure to only be testing in the marketplace section for this feature (OneFora). We've received feedback on restricting the marketplace post type to specific forums and this is already a part of the roadmap to have dedicated marketplace sections, but we wanted to share these features to get feedback. We are also aware that not all these features will fit certain communities right off the bat and we will iterate and improve on them (IE. Buying and Selling for Pets)
