I have the official SocialEngine Blogs / Classifieds Plugin installed on my website, but I like the visually appealing Blogs / Classifieds that can be set up with this plugin. How can I change my site's blogs / classifieds to like yours?
After installing this plugin on your website, you can easily import the existing blogs / classifieds on your website into this plugin, and you can then have an attractive and engaging Blogs / Classifieds system like the ones on our demo here: http://demo.socialengineaddons.com/blogs, here: http://demo.socialengineaddons.com/classifieds, and like the other demo links in the Listing Types tab. You can then configure it to change the URL of the resultant listing system to match that of your old blogs / classifieds systems.
