I just tried the new marketplace on Chrome browser, it looks like they are putting in legacy features, the search selections are working for me (I pick "Jets" and it seems to sort just like the old marketplace). I also saw you can sort by the "latest generated" ad as opposed the the latest ads with posts.

I sympathize with the site, I cant tell you how many times we finally bit the bullet and replaced some unmaintainable code, it can be miserable for everyone involved.

Myself and IBobi are still unable to reproduce this problem. It's working fine on our iPhones. Can you give me a step-by-step run through of how you're searching these results? It also might help to clear your browser history, cache, and cookies on your phone. Maybe your phone is hanging onto to some vestiges of the old marketplace.

^^^ to try to reproduce this, this is what I did:
  • On iphone X, go to RCU
  • Go to marketplace
  • Select VIEW FULL SITE from the hamburger menu top left
  • Click the + next to AIRPLANES to open the subcategories
  • Select JETS and Englines-turbines
  • Get a list of ads for jets and turbines
Worked as expected.

Yes the new format works just fine for me.. Mind you, i don't use the market.

One great improvement is the way photos are now uploaded and displayed. So much better and easier than the previous system which was hit and miss at best..

Now back to my work tasks before the boss catches me.

Just tried placing some new for sale ads on the "improved" site. Some of the pictures didn't make it
thru to the final ad posting, just shows a x in a box. I thought others said that they loaded faster, that's
nothing I noticed. Was cut off after 2 ads ?? As the OP stated, "change is hard" but the old version
of RCU buy/sell was a dragon slayer of the other guys. This change has made me rethink the us or them
situation. I wanted to stick to RCU because I had (HAD) over 350 trader feedbacks but my new ads show
I have 0 trader ratings. And as for the browsing at the for sale ads..... the back button takes you way way
back instead of where you were.... CRAZY !!!
I hope they get it figured out before the boat sinks totally

The image issue has been logged and reported. Hopefully a fix is on the way.

In the filter bar to the left of your browser there is a "My Listings" option
