Some tips on classified ads

Some tips specific to posts in the classified forums :

  • editing posts, and updating
  • inserting images (pictures) into your post

1. Editing posts (in this forum only) :

Posts in the classified forums are now editable by members without time limit (this will be for a trial period), so you can amend the description or price as required

If you are selling a list of items, and after a while some are sold and others not, it's a good idea to cross out (tecchy term is strikethrough) items no longer available

item 1
item 2
item 3
item 4
item 5
item 6

to achieve this there is now a strikethrough option included in the post tools :) but this is only when viewing on a desktop


Unfortunately, at least at the moment, there is no strikethough on mobiles


So to achieve it you have to add a strikethough tag at the beginning and at the end as shown below

2. Inserting images (pictures)

It looks better NOT to insert pictures in the post, just attach files, you would get a group of images at the foot of your post and these are readily opened and browsed by anyone interested.

"Borrowing some images previously posted by Clive Shipman (without his permission but for the greater good using admin perks - thanks Clive :))", a group of attachments might look like this (below)
