show me an example

Have you always wanted to maintain your own classified advertising directory? Probably not. What if you just let people add classifieds themselves, without you having to get into the loop? Self-service stuff!

This is a script that allows you to either display or add classified advertisements. You can have as many categories as you like. The classifieds are stored in text files, each text file containing all the classifieds for a particular category. The classifieds are displayed in table format, and you might want to experiment with the look, especially when you get around to customizing the script.

And what's it good for?

Say, for example, that you operate a web site for your club, and you want your club members to be able to buy and sell merchandise. A classified advertisement board is a great way to announce the availability of merchandise, or maybe a wanted list.

Yes, I know this script is fairly simple, but that's the point. If you'd like to embellish it, please feel free. I'd like to see what you come up with.
