I've had this happen, but I've also been given additional information such as "your title is too long." Did that happen in your case?

Regards,
Kareni

No - it isn't saying anything but "oops", lol.

PLEASE for the love of all creatures on this earth put some sort of announcement on the main page. There must be a half dozen of more "Why cant I post on the for sale board" threads started every day.

Sorry but I just needed to get that out.

Did he say why we are having trouble somewhere?

Yes. We are moving from the old sale and swap boards to the classified section. You can no longer post new items in the old section.

Oh I saw that - I was wondering why I can't post in the classifieds section. When I try to, it says "ooops, we've encountered a problem", for the last few days.

I am having the same problem. I have 10+ ads I wanna list and I get "Oops" every time. This new classifieds section is much less user friendly than the old swap forum :tongue_smilie:

Is it possible to have the classified per country?
I'd love to be able to narrow it down to what's Canadian, and I'm pretty sure the Aussies would love the equivalent.
Even if we could just have US vs International, that would help

Thank you. We can now post, but there is no ability to edit. I missed putting the price in the box at the bottom of the page, went back to edit it a minute later and was told that too much time has elapsed to edit it.

I really am sorry to keep bringing things up.

I posted this under a separate thread but nobody replied, so I'll give it a try here. :001_smile: I've been attempting to leave feedback for a recent sale and haven't been able to. I believe I'm entering everything correctly, adding a link to the deal and typing in the security check words, but I always get a message that a required field has not been filled in. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong! I must have gone through it at least 20 times over the last week, and it's always the same message. Has anyone been able to leave feedback?

I just had the same problem. I have been able to leave feedback on this forum citing a sale from the old swap and sale board, but not a new one in the classifieds.

John, you are doing a terrific job and we appreciate all the hard work. The Classified section is working so much better. For me, there are just two steps left to test:

1. Leave feedback. This is especially important if we are unable to transfer old iTrader ratings.

2. Close out my advertisement. I have left it open even though the item is sold, until I am able to submit feedback.

Also, the ability to see all of the items a particular seller has is a really slick feature - unfortunately, it only shows the most recent advertisement right now. If that could be fixed, it would be most appreciated.

I have been searching for a specific publisher/book set for next year, but to no avail.

Obviously I don't know how to conduct a search on the new platform, so HELP!!!

On the search page I enter the fields below:

Search

Find Words - MUS Algebra (also tried Math U See Algebra)

Classifieds

Click search


No results are ever found.

I see the new information on the ratings iTrader going forward, but will previous ratings ever reappear?

I had at least 35 or 40 positive ratings that are no longer there?

Thanks for this wonderful resource for homeschool parents.

Thanks for working to address so many questions. I have one more to add. :)

If a sale has gone through and the ad is taken down by the seller, how can the buyer go about giving good feedback? (Especially if the buyer waits for the item to arrive before submitting feedback.)

Thanks, again, for your time.
