    If you post a reply, it bumps the ad to the top of the list as with any other post, but in the Classifieds forum, you should now have the option of locking your ad, either because the item has sold or if you don't want comments on your ad. After 30 days, it moves automatically to the Classifieds Archive forum, but maybe Sean can set it up so that you can archive the ad manually when the item sells.

    So, maybe for old ads it's best to just lock them? Once the transition is settled, it probably isn't an issue. I just didn't want to bump my old ads that got (apparently) un-hidden back to current readability.
    Though maybe I worry too much.

    You could lock them, if you like, or just wait and they'll go away on their own.

    Yes, that sounds like a good modification. I found that if I put a picture of the item at my web site, then using the "Insert Link" that the pictures load instantly, however, if I remove those photos at some point (after the item sells) this would mean the archiving of the ad will be without photo, right?

    Thanks for all your efforts.

    For dispute resolution and comparison purposes archiving the images with the ads is important.

    That is true, but to do that, we'd need to require that images be uploaded to the site. It is possible to disallow embedded images and require users to upload images as attachments, but would likely involve restricting the number of images per ad to avoid bandwidth problems, and that could cause problems with ads that include a lot of items, or the kinds of things where you want to be able to show all sides. I suppose that people could still link to images on external websites for additional views or multiple items as they do currently, but then APUG can't archive that.

    thanks guys. i like the newest version the best. i think having it in a forum style makes it work much better than the last system.

    i had not been listing stuff FS here due to the last system being not so user friendly. this should help.

    thanks

    The photos, if large, load slow, and will take up more and more server space as you archive them. If you could restrict them to maybe 50k, maybe that would help.

    For my ads, I will do both, load a small picture and link to a larger one. However, I don't know how you could require that.

    I like the idea of archive of the ads.
