It's easy to produce a classified ad section for a newspaper or magazine using CatBase. You can enter the data directly into the CatBase database, or you can import the ads from another source such as a MySql or SqlServer database, spreadsheet, csv or delimited text file. You can create semi-display ads; include pictures; have differnet types of advertisements formatted in different ways (for example, some ads might be in a plain linage style, whereas others might be in a upgraded, bold style, etc.).
