    G'day Neil. Coupla things:
    • I notice that my ads/auctions don't come up with a pic thumbnail in the listings. Would that be because I'm using BB-Code to link to the pics (as I always do), rather than attaching them to the thread?
    • In composing the auction, if I go to "preview" it wipes out the info I have put into the fields from "new or Used", "Shipping" etc. The top set of fields remains ok.


    Cheers
    Brett

    G'day FF - You need to use the manage attachments button to put pics in an ad.

    The "new or Used", "Shipping" etc stuff is an add on we put in there and not part of the original program so will need to be restored if you preview and most likely if you edit your post. most of the rest is part of the original progremming and should remain when you edit or preview.

    Cheers

    Rightio Neil, thanks for the explanation. (still reckon it should say "Bid Increment" rather than minimum bid, but I suppose it should only fool a guy once )

    That is a good idea and something I can change easy enough. Will wait to see what the boss thinks before I do it though.

    Yes, in the first Auction I put up I had $40 as the Starting price, and so put the same for "Min Bid" (thinking "how stupid is that - having to specify it twice" Then, when the first bid of $40 came in and the next requested bid price was $80 I realised what it all meant (and the item was only ever going to sell for about $50.

    So, Steven, going back to Neil's answer on why I didn't get display pics (because I used a BB-code) is it possible to add a little window to input the BB-code for the thumbnail display? I almost always use BB-Code because it positions pics the way that I want them, and I think, but not too sure, that non-members can see the pics this way, but they can't see pics attached to the thread.

    I just posted a test auction (which has since been deleted). The solution to my problem is pretty simple:
    • Main pic as (my) usual with BB-Code
    • Add a thumbnail of the same pic of perhaps 20kb or less in size via the attachments button in the thread (as you recommended)
    • Problem solved.

    Yeah... Or add it the way I said via the Manage Attachments bit, get the same result and save time.

    We don't really want non registered people to see the pics. No reason for them to join up and participate if they get it all handed to them on a platter.

    This is not for the old market place, but the new Auctions Forum which has now been renamed Market Place/Auctions .

    Please put forward any questions or problems you may have in this thread and we'll endeavour to answer or fix any problems that are reported in here.

    Please do not use this forum as a whinging point because you don't like it, but rather as a place to try and iron out any problems that you may encounter.

    I have had this program for almost 2 years and it has been worked on and refined to iron out a heap of bugs. It was in testing on our test site for many months and was working like a charm until it was changed to this site where it has had a heap of problems come to light. There is a lot of money invested in this and many, many, many, hours of hard work and late nights well into the wee small hours. So please help us to help you by reporting any genuine problems and concerns in here.

    Suggestions about what should be added or taken away will in most instances not be doable as the program has some reasonably tight constraints, but we will do what we can when and where we can to iron out all the problems.

    Suggestions about scrapping the new Market Place/Auctions and going back to the old one will fall on deaf ears, as this new one has the potential to be many times better and save the Moderators and Administrators many hours of extra work a week. Mods and Admins do a fantastic and mostly thankless job on these forums and they no longer need the extra hassles and concerns that went hand in hand with the old Market Place.

    Hope this is used as requested.

    Cheers - Neil

    PS Negative posts with such things as, I don't like it. It's garbage. I won't use it. "the Auction is a dud what bright spark thought to do it?" etc, etc, will all be deleted. They don't help and if you don't like it don't use it. Go and pay for your ad on ePay or another site instead of using this one for free.
    How do I edit my listing? Thanks Alan

    G'day Alan

    There's a few things you can do in the Listing Owner Options link but after the first 24hrs there isn't much you can edit yourself.

    Send me a Private Message with any changes you want and I'll do them for you or you can send a PM to any of the moderators or admins and get it done.

    Hope this is of some help.

    Cheers - Neil

    Question Filtering out sold / ended entries in the Auctions

    Now that there are a few entries in some of the categories, you often have to page through a few pages of sold and ended entries to find active auctions. Is there a way of filtering the display to exclude sold ans ended auctions?

    Thanks,

    Roy

    Default No contact with Winning Bidder??

    A new member recently bid and won an item I had For Sale, but to-date I have not heard from him. I cannot contact him by PM as his mail box is full (limited as a new member) and he has not logged on since placing the bid.

    Question: Assuming that I do not hear from him shortly, is there a waiting period before I can call that sale null and void and then relist the item?

    Default Marking Items 'SOLD

    sold an Item and couldn't see how to mark the sale and price as such. All I could was Close the auction. Any clues.
    Thanks
    Mike
