Your 'Admin' profile pic is displayed to confirm that you logged in with the correct admin credentials, if you have multiple admins. You will find a variety of other valuable statistics, all intended to help you manage your site more effectively. You'll quickly see that our primary goal is to set you up for success!
Not sure how to set up a classified ads or auctions website? Not to worry. GeoCore is packed with all of the tools you need to make this dream a reality. GeoCore offers an interactive Checklist Tool that will guide you through the setup process. This tool will auto-detect, as well as, offer you the ability to manually check off items. As you do, the Checklist Gauge will automatically adjust to show you a percentage of setup completion. Once finished, you can then 'hide' this tool, freeing up space on your Admin Panel home page for your other site statistics.
User Registration can be made as simple or as complex as you want it to be. Ask only a minimal of information or choose from a many fields to get the information you need from your users. GeoCore's registration options include... a "Standard" registration process, Just-In-Time (JIT) Registration (registration at the end of listing item details entered), Anonymous Listing placement (requires no registration), Multiple User Groups and Registration Codes (allows you to apply different Price Schemes per User Group), and many, many, more options, including admin registration approval.
Let's face it. Your site's users are your most valuable asset. Because of that, GeoCore gives you all of the necessary tools to effectively manage and communicate with them. Once a user is in the system, you can edit their information, view/edit their listings, move them to a different user group, apply tokens (free listings) to their account, monitor communications made using the software's built-in communication system, send messages to the entire database of users or by User Group, and so much more, from suspending accounts to deleting, to blocking IP Addresses altogether if necessary.
The User Profile page provides a quick snapshot of the User's details, ratings, contact information, and any other information that was collected during the registration process. You can view their profile pic as well as remove it, if deemed inappropriate. This page also displays their User Group, as well as, the current Price Plan that they fall under, and any tokens that have available to them. The Listings tab will display their current and expired listings, where you can edit recent listings and even apply upgrades, such as attention-getters, renew/extend the listing's expiration.
The Design menu gives you extreme design control over your site and holds/displays all of the themes currently available for use. Each theme can be easily copied, activated or deactivated. Themes themselves, are made up of editable html templates, css files, and images, just like your average website. A built-in WYSIWYG tool allows you to make basic text changes. But for more creative and complex control, the 'Source Code Editor' tab allows you (or your developer) the ability edit the html source directly. Use the provided Default themes or create your own!
GeoCore offers you many options for capturing payments from customers. Whether you decide to collect payments manually or through a Payment Gateway, GeoCore is programmed to work with the most popular and trusted gateways available to online merchants: Stripe, 2Checkout, Authorize.net, CashU, Internet Secure Source, Linkpoint, Moneris, ePay.dk, NetCash, Nochex, Beanstream, Payment Express, Paypal, Paypal Pro, PayPal Payments Advanced, PayScape, Verisign Payflow Pro, WorldPay, iDEAL via Mollie.nl, CommWeb VPC
GeoCore gives you the ability to create an unlimited number of categories and subcategory levels. Each category can have as many "category specific questions" as you want to offer, as well as, the ability to identify "category specific fields". Add "Category Filters" to some or all of your categories to help visitors more easily find what they're looking for. All of these tools help your sellers and buyers to either post or find the items they're looking for with the most clear and concise information as possible.
One of the most valuable assets to GeoCore is the "Addon Framework" that it has been built on. This framework allows you to install Geo-created Addons, as well as, 3rd Party Developer addons, all without affecting the base code of the software, which means you can essentially add features to the software, without affecting future upgrades. Check out the free addons that we offer... all of which come pre-loaded and ready to go with your license of GeoCore.
