Classified ads help
POSTING CLASSIFIED ADS
To post or to respond to classified ads, you must be registered and logged in on this website. Registration is free! Just click on the "Register as a new member" link in the left sidebar. New members are approved by the moderator, usually within a day or two.
To post a new classified ad, go to Classifieds in the top menu bar and choose "Post an ad" from the drop-down menu. Fill out the form and click the Save button at the bottom of the page. This submits your ad for moderation. It will appear as soon as the moderator has approved it.
To upload a photo to go with your ad, click on the Browse button under "Main image" on the "Post an ad" page. Browse your own computer to find the photo, select it and click Open. Then click the Upload button and your photo will be uploaded.
You can upload up to two extra images, in case you want to show different views of your item. Use the Additional image spots to upload the other photos.
Good photos attract people to the item you have for sale. The best photos are sharp, well lit, and focus in closely on the item rather than including a lot of background. If you're not a professional photographer, it's much easier to take sharp, well-lit photos outdoors or near a big window (during daylight).
REMOVING CLASSIFIED ADS
Your ad will remain up for 30 days after it becomes active, but you may remove it sooner — for instance, if your item has sold. To do this, click on the title of your ad, and in the new window, click on the Workflow tab above your ad. Click on the button that says Expired. Don't forget to click Save at the bottom of the page.
EDITING CLASSIFIED ADS
To edit your ad, click on the title of your ad, and in the new window, click on the Edit tab above your ad. When you are finished editing, click Save at the bottom of the page.
If your ad has been disapproved by the moderator, you may edit it as above, but after you have made your changes, then scroll down the Edit page to the box labeled CLASSIFIEDS. Click on the button that says Awaiting Moderation. Then scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click Save. Your ad will be resubmitted for moderation.
RENEWING AN EXPIRED AD
If you have run an ad and it has expired, you can re-activate it. Click on the Workflow tab above your ad. Click on the button that says Active. Don't forget to click Save at the bottom of the page. This renews your ad for another 30 days.
If you have questions not answered here, please contact the moderator.
