Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

When editing do you have the Go Advanced option - it has to be the very first post in the thread.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Ian I have the "Go Advanced" option but still can not edit the For sale/Sold part of the title.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Just tried going 'advanced' but there's no option to change the title prefix. All I could do was append a sold statement in the text.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Hi Ian, yes, I've just amended the title with the words SOLD, however I can't amend the prefix tab - it's not visible when editing.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Ian managed to find go advanced and while no prefix edit showed up I could change the text but when I completed on my tablet nothing happened.

I open the same thread on my desktop and the title showed as was but on opening it to edit the edit already made was there I hit enter or whatever and it changed but only the text the red WANTED had gone.
Hope this helps


Just gone back in to check the latest edit to find the original title has not changed but if I open the thread the title header has changed?

Do you have a link?

Are you using Tapatalk or just a web browser?

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Links are beyond me please explain.
The post was regarding the DR66 its title is WANTED details for DR 66
from December 23rd
I was using Tapatalk on my tablet found I could edit but it did not change the posting.

From my Desktop Firefox I opened and found the change was made but had not gone to site I clicked on save and it changed the thread title but on coming out and going back in the original title had not changed but opening showed the change in title text. the WANTED had gone.

Come back if you need more.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Ian,
I'm using an iPad, but connect via Safari.

Still unable to edit the drop down list, ie for sale, wanted etc. In fact advanced edit does not provide this option.

Having edited the title description and then saved, the changes are visibly apparent. But when I go back up the tree again, ie in the list of ads, the edited text disappears. Most odd.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

To change the status you MUST edit the very first post in the thread. It's not accessible in subsequent posts in the thread. And you have to use Go Advanced mode.

Unfortunately, each post in the thread has its own copy of the title so if there is a mistake or change required, each one will need to be edited and I don't think (and quite right) you are allowed to edit any posts that are not originated by you in the first place).

Maybe this clarifies things?

Unfortunately, I can't test this myself unless I set up a dummy account and post a test ad and wait for the edit time out. I may well do this anyway

Ian

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Hi Ian,

I've managed to change the title on this thread

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...913#post355913

Saw the edit option for the first time this evening. Went to advanced mode and all was good.

Wasn't able to change the font colour in the title BTW.

Titles don't have colours, only the prefixes and those are preset. Your ad doesn't have a prefix selected currently - was there one originally?

Well done for getting this far though
