    Jay has installed a great new program for our Classified Section!

    The new system has many advantages over the old forum based system, including:

    Sellers can place classified ads for fixed prices or with optional eBay style bidding enabled

    Sellers can upload several photos to display with each classified ad

    Sellers can set an expiration date for each ad
    SOLD IT! and RELIST IT! options to disable/re-enable ads

    User feedback system to provide ratings and feedback for buyers and sellers

    Contact seller page allows buyers to contact sellers without revealing seller email address

    Search by keyword

    This is just a small portion of the features the new classifieds system affords users.

    Check it out, you can set up your own auctions!

    Forget Ebay Fees!

    Yea, left coast discrimination.

    Near as I can tell the permissions look right. What exactly are you trying to do? Can you create a test ad?

    Why not leave it the way it was.Most users list here rather than ebay or if listed there,make mention of it of it on your site.Ebay has gone down hill over the yrs.The buick community is never going to be as big as it once was.This site has gone south as well,many have left and its not because they sold their cars.I dont care for the ebay style of selling,maybe others will chime in on this.Was this your decision to go to this format or was it a group preference?I wont be using your new selling gimmic.How do I end my subscribtion to this site.

    There is no "gimmick." If a user wants to make his ad an auction, he can make his ad an auction. If he wants to sell it outright, he can sell it outright. You can set the ad up so people can pay you for the item directly through the ad, there is a feedback system to reward the good sellers....

    What the hell was I thinking trying to bring something better to the Buick community.

    I was trying to reply to an ad, and in the lower left corner, the system stated that I had permissions only to edit posts. I logged off, and logged back in- no good.

    Let me see if i can create a test post. Weird, that this would only happen in the 'for sale' sections, and nowhere else.....BRB

    You are using the new ad system, correct? The old forums are locked and can only be viewed.

    Send me a PM with your password in it so I can have a look. All of the permissions are correct, this shouldnt be happening.

    Put some more hackage to work on the classified system. Now all the new ads show up under New Posts

    Also, people who have donated to the site are allowed to set their ads in bold type, italics and make it a highlight ad. Just a small way of saying thanks to those people who support T6P

    Almost every problem Ive encountered with the new ad system is people trying to use the old ad forums thinking they were connected. That being said, I've removed the old ad forums and now only the new system remains. I think the old ads had enough time to run their course and of course people can post their ads in the new system.
