Help - problem placing "classified ad"

Hello - I have been trying to place an ad in the classifieds (late model trailers 1985-2009) for the last couple of days (submitted twice). After I click on the "Submit" button, the ad appears to load, but the ad has not appeared. Any ideas as to what is wrong?
Thanks for your help!

Hi Trav. Appearing to load but never posting to classifieds is most commonly due to attachments that are too large. Different than the forums software, the classifieds package is quite limiting. Resize your images and please repeat the effort. I suspect it will go through this time. An ad should appear in less a minute or less after clicking 'submit.'

Resize guidelines are at http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...tml#post612696

And know that you don't have to give up large pictures on the classifieds if you take 5 minutes to learn one of the free image warehousing sites. I like www.photobucket.com but I think they're all much the same.

You store a nice big fat image on the image site, then paste only a link to it on the classifieds (or in the forums), and you can have a nice big photo that you can later change or delete, should you need/choose to.

Like this one of the 1974 Sovereigns:

Thanks for everyone's help! I'm pretty sure that the pictures are too large. I thought I reduced them, but still no luck (I'm not very tecchy). Anyhow, I'm going to try the ad without pictures, and forward privately to anyone who is interested.
Thanks again
