    UPDATE!

    I have disabled the current system because I am going to be upgrading to the new system. This should take care of many of the issues that are being noticed.

    I'll make a new post when the new system is up and running.

    I'm sorry for the inconvience, but I think this should really be worth it.

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________

    In an effort to try and help our the members of this forum we have implemented a new classifieds system for the forum.

    Up in the nav bar, next to the FAQs, you will find a "Classifieds" link.

    Please use this new system when posting items for sale or items that you are looking to buy. There is also a free items category within this section as well, to take care of the free parts thread that's stickied in here.

    As a way to help facilitate the transition, all new threads will be moderated. This means that your new threads will not be posted. Current sales that are in progress will continue on until finished.

    This new system will allow for user feedback on buyers and sellers as well as keep items separated.

    If you have any questions, please PM me and I'll be happy to answer them.

      this setup with catagories looks much more sensible than trying to find particular items in threads. Nice work Jan.

        Is it possible to change "Rating" to "Trader Rating" or something similar?

            I agree. I'll take a look in the code real quick.

            Thanks for the feed back.

            Currently, I have the system set to use a predefined thumbnail size, but it's not holding.

            I will go back through and downsize all images though so the page fits better.

            EDIT: Images have been downsized.

              What about trades? I notice you can only list as buy or sell. Perhaps you can add a "Trade" category.

              Also, how does it work if a member sales/buy an item before the time period ends. What about if a user wants to extend the time or change the price. What type of options are displayed after an item is listed?

              Should people list each item as a new ad or can we list multiple items in one ad?

                  List it in your ad for now.

                  Also, how does it work if a member sales/buy an item before the time period ends.
                  You can close your own adds and reopen them as you see fit.

                  What about if a user wants to extend the time or change the price.
                  You can edit the add and change the time.

                  If something hasn't sold after 2 months, then it's probably not going to sell and would be lost in the mix through the old method anyways.

                  What type of options are displayed after an item is listed?
                  Why don't you just give it a try if you have something to sell?

                  Should people list each item as a new ad or can we list multiple items in one ad?
                  New ad for each item. This gives you and the other individual the ability to earn the ratings you deserve for the multiple items you deal. This is of course unless you have multiple of the exact same items. Use your judgement.

                    Ok

                    How does it know which user actually was involved in the transaction? I did not see a place to enter to whom the item was sold to or bought from. What is to stop people from just entering feedback that they were not involved in?

                    How do you edit the time? Do you just reopen it when it closes after 24 hours. Edit: Missed the timeframe box, nevermind.

                      You go in and leave the feedback by clicking on the user name in the ad.

                      Trust. Unfortuantely, it's not a feature that's supported in the free version of the modification. If I can prove that the modification is a good addition to the site, then perhaps Nat and Rob will agree to go for the full version.

                      How do you edit the time? Do you just reopen it when it closes after 24 hours.
                      I'm gathering that you're not one who accepts change very well are you?

                        I just made a test ad to see what it is about. When I tried to upload a *.png file as a picture, I got a PHP error. Maybe some protection code around that is required.

                        Also when I wrote the post I put a bunch of line breaks like you do with normal posts here, and the ad reflects none of them. I am not sure if we must add "\r\n" manually, or maybe add "<br>" or whatever is required, but the line spacing does not work for me.

                        Also I went to the Miscellaneous section by using the links on the left, once there, I didn't see a button for "New Ad". I only saw the new ad button on the classified's home page.

                        Other than that it looks really good.

                        EDIT: Ok, it requires "<br>" breaks for newlines.

                          change is good.










                          well change from a pound (dollar or whatever of your denomination) is always good.

                            I think it is a good addition. Much better than trying to user reputation for a gauge of how good a seller/buyer is. I would push them to get the full version, I can already see the added value to the site.

                            Just asking questions on how it works. It is also nice how one will not have to wade through the "new posts" filled will classifieds.

                            Is there anyway to add the member's name and avatar under the member info? Instead of just "Posted by XXXX". I know the name is listed, but it is so tiny. Maybe I am just getting too old.

                            I see someone removed my ad... Anyone want a screw?
