  3. Do you by any chance know of a classifieds plugin (either from the above or others) which will allow the user to select the date when the classified ad will be listed? For example the user still selects the ad package/membership etc and writes the listing, pays the amount and then selects the day the listing will be published (say for example 3 days from today)…As I am looking for a plugin which allows that option for a local website.
