Angry Troubles posting my ad

I am literally tearing out my hair trying to post an ad! I logged in to the Classified section, filled out all the fields, hit Submit, and saw my ad disappear into cyberspace, never to be seen again. Tried twice, then created a new registration for my husband, tried under his login, same result. Poof, it's gone! Tried on a different computer, same result. Sent a message to the administrators, but haven't gotten a response yet.

Any ideas, anyone? I really do know how to post an ad, done it before. . .we are having to sell our beautiful rig, not happy about it at all, but this is so frustrating on top of everything else!

Were you logged into the classified site separate from the forums? Even when you're logged into the forums you have to log into the classifieds, using the same login info. I don't know much about classifieds either, but I know that trips up a lot of folks.

The Moderator brought up your problem in our room and comments have been made.

In the meanwhile, here are some things that have (and have not) worked on no regular basis for others:
  • Clear your cache(s)
  • Use a different browser
  • Use a different computer
  • Do the ad in sections. Start with basic pieces, like title, trailer model and size, then save; go back using Edit and try adding the Description, then save, then try another time to add photos.

Try creating it in sections; start a new post, put in your make, model, length, year, then save it. The go back in and edit it, adding more info. Save. Try to move forward by adding more, photos, say. Sneak up on it, as it were.

I have seen posters put the description into one of the follow-up comments.

I know it's frustrating, but I hope you will agree, computers can be very frustrating at times. Please try to be patient, we will help you as best we can.

Thank, you, thank you, thank you! One step at a time worked. A bit cumbersome, but well worth the time after fighting with it half the day! I really try everything else including clearing the cache, different computer, even trying a new registration through my husband. Just took the one small step approach! Now, if we can find a buyer. . .thank you again!

Well, I was giving it some time for me to get used to it, but I have you admit you are right. I may change it again soon. Thanks for your input.

Hey, that is one of the faster sales I have seen on the Classifieds. Congratulations, and I hope you got what you wanted for it. It is a lovely trailer!
