Editing classified ads

I have tried to add photos to a classified ad I posted, but I don't see the changes I submitted to the ad, including the photos. Is there a trick I'm missing?

Hello ahickpoet and welcome to the Forums!

I have found your ad under Vintage Trailers. Moderator privileges allow me to go in like I'm editing -- just as you would. Let us walk through this and see what we're both doing in common.

Have your pictures you want to upload ready before proceeding. I would suggest modifying them in any photo program preloaded on your computer. When modifying an original digital photo, be sure to do a 'Save As' or your original file would be erased if you only do a 'Save.' When I'm doing a 'Save As' I save it to a temporary desktop file I'll discard after the item is sold -- this makes it very easy to find when you do the following steps. They should be jpeg format (not tiff or bitmap) -- 800 x 600 is a good size. This fits within the Forums file size maximum which may be 840 or 860 pixels wide -- if memory were serving me better.

1. While you are logged in as yourself open your ad from the link above. Just below the zip code entry area is a dark blue bar with words 'Edit Ad' -- click that area and open the edit window.
2. See "Select new images or leave blank to use current one" area partway down the edit window. You can add up to six photos to your ad. Click "Browse" to add picture 1. From the resulting popup window, select the location of one of your edited photos you wish to add.
3. Add additional photos as needed.
4. I would suggest adding the model year to your "Edit title for the item" line.
5. Be sure to click 'Submit Changes' at the bottom before leaving that page.

Post back to this thread if you have any problems and I'll pick up on it tomorrow. Good luck!

Hi CanoeStream,

I have read your reply to ahickpoet and I'm still having problems with editing my ad. I would like to add a description and have made several attempts. After hitting the submit button, the next screen says that I was successful. But after viewing, I am not!

I have followed your instructions, but do not see the zip code reference.

Thanks for any help! TDOW

Good point. And on most computers, easiest way to the refresh button is hitting the F5 key.

Ahickpoet, let's try first things first: Did you log in to the classifieds? The login for the classifieds is separate from the login to the forums, so logging into the forums does not log you into the classifieds. And I suspect that the classifieds won't let you properly edit anything if you're not logged in.

Ok, next step. Have you tried a cookies dump?

TDOW, I have encountered times when members have problems you report in editing the text block on their ads. I'd say clearing your browser's cache (temporary internet files) would be most useful at this point. And then trying one more time?

Whatever it is you're trying to change, PM me. Describe any field that you would like to change and what the new content would be. Tell me in the PM if you want to change images -- I have a way for you to get those to me too. I'll be glad to work with you.
