Hello Axiom,

Last time I tested the "Classified" project (which was a few years back), I remember it was working fine out of the box. I will see if I have a copy or if I can run the project on my end.

For your error, I found a topic similar to your error message (for classified) here:

Did you add the <configuration> tag with debug ="true" in your web.config file as mentioned in the error message?

Hello Axiom,

Thank you for your feedback :) I'm glad you find the website and the information helpful.

I'll look into the project on my end and the errors you are getting. I'll get back to you when I'm done testing the project.

Hello Axiom,

By looking at the example sites that you provided, it seems like you need to build a custom website. nopCommerce is not the right solution for this as it is an e-Commerce solution.

The best approach would be, select a CMS project and customize it according to your requirements. Some good CMS projects are:

- Orchard CMS
- N2 CMS
- MojoPortal

Here are some real estate site projects I found online that might be worth looking:


Hope it helps!

I am sorry I didn't get a chance to look into the sql script. I will certainly test the script over the weekend and will get back to you.

Ok I will take a look at your sql script, test it on my end and get back to you.

1) Have you considered using the import excel sheet features for importing a list of products in your database which already does the same job successfully (instead of this custom sql script) ?

2) You also have an option of using this extension/tool for maintaining your products:

3) Please share your sql script here that you are using for importing the products so that we can figure it out what is the issue
