No Search Function

Wondering when the browse "Page not Found"will be fixed, and are there plans to put back the "Search"function?

Thanks

This has been fixed - there's now a return link

The search function will be returned - but is still being worked on. If you are using the drop down menu at the top of the forum, just click on the main link to classifieds and not the sub categories for year (as they aren;t working yet)

Thumbs down New Ad

Not a fan of change to this site...new listings too busy, and view fewer per page, and seems like more adds. I did like old site better.

Thanks for your feedback. Please be patient - there are still many changes to be made.

Let me put a mark in the "Plus" column. I work in software development so I understand that it takes a while to roll out a huge update to an existing site, I'll wait to see how the details get fixed. I'd like to see a control for the number of classifieds per page, but overall I think this update is huge.

The old classifieds site looked like a webpage from the 90s.

The new site is more visually appealing, the new search and sort functionality will be a tremendous improvement once everything's working fully, and the new photo display tool is such a phenomenal improvement that I'd be happy with the update if that were the only benefit.

Hopefully the new form for creating classified ads will have good rules to require those placing ads to fill in the metadata necessary to make the searches and sorts work right. Data quality and consistency was one of the shortcomings of the previous format.

...right now it seems the ads are inudating the "new posts" page. I suppose this is just because of the switch over and all the listings are "new" right now. I sure hope this won't be the norm once it is settled in - I for one don't want to be tempted by all the ads while browsing the Forums.

Shari - they are posting like that because we're in the middle of editing each ad ... (Old fields of data, didn't play well with new fields). As they are edited the new thread is posted. Once this is sorted out, you will see a new thread only when a new ad is loaded, just a few each day.

Janet and team,
You're doing a fine job working out the bugs. My heart goes out to you. You might add a mandatory when posting, if you can. That is, every listing must have a state or province associated with it. Those of us who are browsing for our next (or first) AS make some decisions based to location. If a person was forbidden to complete a posting without a state or province selected from the drop-down, you'd always get that vital data on the posts.

Keep up the good work

You guys are doing a nice job, in post # 25 I said it would be nice to have a "back to the forums option" and in post # 30 in was already done.

I've noticed if you are viewing on a tablet or phone, there is no way to change to the desktop version. It's a pretty stripped version, and I can't seem to get photos to come up.
I'm sure y'all are working on it, and maybe one of the fixes you are working on will take care of it. I'll keep an eye on it for changes...

It is so bad, right now, I can't even use it. I revert to JAXED.

Looks nice, folks. I think there may a problem with the "pricing" option, tho. Somebody has one for sale over there for more that a $Billion (yes, with a B). AirSTREAM, not aircraft CARRIER, right?

Great job!

Jim
