Ah! Eureka! The lights come on now that explains all of the frustrations that those of us that are on our phone 95% of the time while on your site. I bet that you have it somewhere in the directions too, that none of us have read. This is because we’ve been using for years and feel we shouldn’t have to read the directions of how to navigate the site.

Yeah smaller screens have room for less stuff



We'll keep working on the mobile skin, but at some point you'll just need to switch to desktop if you want to do more than read/post, which is what the mobile skin is for

Well, I will say that it was pretty easy, at least for me, to post an ad. It’s easier than transferring the pictures from the phone to the pc, then list it. I was just having issues on finishing the sale details, as we’ve discuss. I almost bet more than half of the guys are having the same issues, due to the phone skin. I did go to the full website a lot to finish things.

I hear you! I have a feeling the transition is a little tougher for those who were used to the old MP, and would be pretty easy for newbies to use on mobile, as they do not expect every old feature to be reintroduced on mobile. We'll keep tweaking it and seeing what we can get on mobile as we move forward.

We've asked to have it recreated... time will tell if they are able to do it, but we have recommended several upgrades to the searching functions including wish list.

IBobi;

My ads have gotten old. I went and edited the ad and hit the List it now button. All of the changes took place, but the ad didn’t go back to the top of the Market List as a new listing. In order to have the listing at the top, a new forum has to be created? There’s no method, other than marking the item sold, to close out the previous listing, if a new one is created.

That sounds right -- editing an old ad won't "top" the ad, because new ads go to the top.

So how does the old ad go away? So that it doesn’t come up in a search when there’s a new one?

You can mark it sold, or ask for it to be deleted.

Thanks!

As as a suggestion, can you add “electric “ under motors?

I'd love LOVE the option of turning off classifieds from showing up as New Posts when I'm forum surfing.

If I want forums I should be able to go to the forums, if I want ads I should be able to go there.

+1 I mentioned this back when the new owners took over. They changed part of it, but not all of it.

PS: I remember now, they took the Market Ads out of the Jet Forums.

I will ask. Since "new posts" really is just a search function, it may not be possible, but we'll see.

So an expired ad has to be completely deleted or marked sold, and then you start it all over again without an option of reposting it? Am I understanding that correctly?

When you listing is about to expire, you should get some sort of notification that asks if you'd like to repost your ad, allowing you to repost without all the steps you mentioned. Is this not working for you?

Hi, I didn't get any notification and my ad is gone as well. In another note, I am not getting any notification when someone sends a private message. Is that function gone also?

thanks

How long ago did your ad expire? The update with the notification went through about a month ago.

I posted it on 01-02-2019. I don't see an actual date of when it expired. The old system was 14 days, so I would assume around the 16th if that rule still applies.

Thanks, I reported your issue to tech. Hopefully we figure out what's going on.

Marketplace posts should now be excluded from new posts.
