Updating sales and wanted ad status

I am attempting to enable members to be able to edit their own posts in the small ads board so that they can make corrections and change the wanted/for sale/sold, etc. satus without a time limit.

I would be handy for anyone who has used the classifieds are to try this and let me know if it works - to do this you will need to edit an ad placed over a week or so ago.

Many thanks,

Ian

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Ian, I've just tried updating a for sale add but the option to edit doesn't appear. The add in question was placed approx 4 weeks ago - for a VF4. The item is sold so thought it deserves updating.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

OK, I will have a further look (incidentally to change the title and status prefix you need to be in Advanced edit mode).

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

I have made some more changes - can anyone try to edit their original ad post which is over a week or two old to test this please?

Thanks,

Ian

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

All I want to do is to add Sold to the title of my ad which is a week old. I have searched for ages before seeing your post, but I still cannot see how to do it. My ad has no edit button and no apparent way of adding "Sold" yet there are loads of sales adverts with it. I am currently viewing on an iPad.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Ian,
I'm still not able to edit a ForSale or Wanted posting?

Can't believe I'm the only one to provide feedback as requested!

Oops spoke too soon, I see KennyC has just replied!

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

OK, I will do some more research.

In the mean time if anyone needs their ad to be updated myself or one of the mods can do this for you.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Can anyone test the self-editing of sales and wants posts again for me?

Many thanks,

Thanks for that.

I will issue guidelines after more tests - basically previous versions must be logged so that any malicious changes can be verified.

I managed to edit the text but not the title. All I want to do is to add SOLD in colour to the title. But I do now have an EDIT button.

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Same here Ian, I managed to enter Sold in the text, but not the title heading - For Sale to Sold. I tried going advanced but could not see an option to do this.

I don't know if it will work with TapaTalk but as long as you choose the Advanced option for editing the very first post in the thread you should be able to edit the title and the Sold, etc. prefix.

Let me know if it doesn't work for you.

Ian
