I am trying to find why some are not able to post. I will keep you all updated.


I tried starting a new thread in this forum & it said it had to be reviewed by a moderator before it could be posted? I've been here a long time and I never had that happen before! Did I do something wrong? :confused1:


I am STILL having problems uploading photos to my classified ads. I tried three browsers, reformatting the photos, posting on two computers with different OS---any ideas what is wrong? I click attach file, watch the counter go from 0-100% then get this error message every time:

Error This upload failed

I cannot use the advanced uploader either (it kicks me back to the main classifieds page if I click the link). I put links to my flickr acct on my ads but that is not a real solution.

Any suggestions/ideas would be greatly appreciated (maybe it's me lol).

Thanks!

Until you get this figured out, there's a WTM-inspired FB used curriculum swap group in which you can upload pictures of items for sale (they are organized by category, so you have to open the Photos section and then find the album you want to upload into; uploading directly to the wall is not allowed). Works great! I've sold a bunch of stuff. Selling here at WTM is best, but the busy season is upon us so if you need something temporary, feel free to come on by.

OK - so I sold something (yippee) but when i went in to delete the post the only option I have is to renew it. This is my first time using the new system and I am confused :)

Hey, did we ever get the feedback issue resolved?  My feedback from the old system never transferred over.  What am I missing?

Thanks!

Thanks so much!

I believe you need to have 50 posts before you can add advertisements. They don't want people joining the community just to sell stuff.

Well, I used to have lots of posts, but then I didn't get on for awhile... I was a member for several years but now all of that history seems to be gone. :( Do I have to start over? Or is there a way to get all of my past restored?

 

Thanks,

I'd contact the moderator. Some things didn't transfer over in the new forums. Maybe your post count was one of those things?

How do we delete an advertisement? I sold an item about a week ago and went in and "closed" it (the only thing I could figure out to do). It turned red in my list of advertisements, so apparently it did something. I got an email today wondering if I still had it available.

 

So what does closing it DO? Is there something else I'm supposed to do?

 

I have to admit I'm not feeling the love...sorry.

Did the classifieds section ever start working? I know I lost all my old feedback and will probably never get it back, but I tried to post something for sale and got error messages. I'm not sure what you need to do to make this work but I'd love to know.

I went to sell something for the 1st time on the "new" boards.  Every time I click that I want the for sale section, it logs me out and tells me I need 1 post before I can sell anything?!  I have tried a dozen time...no luck.  Anyone know what's going on?

Well I'll tell you what happened...I use firefox normally, but I tried explorer and it gave me an internal server error when I tried to post.  However, strangely it DID post?!

And at least it didn't log me out.  Very strange.  Brownie

I posted my ad, but when I go into it I don't see anywhere where people can contact me if they are interested in the item. When I go into other peoples' ads I see "Contact the advertiser directly."  Am I to do something when listing my item, or what? Thanks for the help!

I just checked your ad, and it does show "Contact the advertiser directly." 

Perhaps you don't see it because your the advertiser?

I'm trying to post a classified ad, but when I try to choose sale from the drop-down menu I am getting logged of the system. 

Thanks,

Dana

 

Edited to add: It finally worked when I chose the remember me button when logging in. After posting the ad I was left with a blank screen, so I just closed it and logged on to the site again.

I know this is an old post, but I am having some techical issues.  I frequently use the Buy, Sell and Trade section of this site.  I realize I have to post occasionally, but I'm not sure how often that is. 

 

My problem is that when I log in, I go to the Classifieds section and go to my profile to manage My Classifieds.  When I click on this, it requires me to log in again.  Now, I am attempting to renew a classified but it's not allowing me to Renew.  It says I have to post something in order to do this.  So, maybe this post will help me get there.  I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

 

Thanks for any help!

I believe you need to have fifty posts before you can post something for sale.

 

 

For those who have more than fifty posts, try this.  When I log in to the board, I am offered a choice to Remember me.  If I check that box, I am able to post, edit, and refresh ads.  If I do not check that box, I have far less success.

 

Regards,

Kareni
