This new plugin need to be able to do exactly the same as [url removed, login to view]

2.2. - Non functional requirements
Installable plugin for WP
Posible to uninstall erasing all extra DB (ask before erase)
Plugin must work at any theme. (theme independent)
Usage of gettext for WP
[url removed, login to view] integrated (really simple API) [url removed, login to view]
Documentation using PHP Doc or similar
Simple to use plugin that is going to be released as GPL. We want to spread the market of Open Classifieds software and we believe WP may be the best way.
At the end we will have 2 kind of Open Classifieds software, the standalone and the WP plugin.
There's going to be a Paid version that includes Paypal to post and not any advertisement in the settings.
