    Question Classified Ad Help-If you have a problem READ THIS

    My apologies for posting this request, but I've sought help from the moderators/administrator with no reply - during the holiday season, it's understandable that their attention is focused elsewhere.

    I've tried to post an ad in the "new" classified section, but I'm continually told that I need to "select a thread prefix". I've tried Firefox, Chrome and IE 9 and still don't see that option available. Others have posted current ads, so I know the system works. Is there something I'm missing?

    Thanks in advance,

    FlyNLow

    you don't have any adblocking or other browser modifications, do you?

    seems to show the prefix option for me ... hmm

    re: Classified Ad Help-If you have a problem READ THIS

    I've disabled all ad blocking/virus protection add-ons/software, restarted Firefox/Chrome/IE9, and it still doesn't show up. I've tried 3 different computers, and a Droid X cell phone...nothing to be seen. I've also downloaded and tried Opera 11.0 - still nothing. Maybe it's my ISP...frustrating. Thanks for letting me know that it's really there.

    re: Classified Ad Help-If you have a problem READ THIS

    That occurred to me as well. Perhaps some kind moderator/administrator would check that out. I'm sure there's nothing user configurable that I could adjust. I'd love to post the for sale ad for our 2009 CTS with only 9000 miles on it, but at this point, it's been a bit daunting/challenging. Thanks again!

    I have the exact same problem as well. All different browsers, I've tried everything on my end. I did contact the moderators but have not received a resolution as of yet. I ended up posting to the old classifieds section...

    There must be a bug with some accounts. Did you come to this forum through facebook? That seems to have caused problems for some people.

    My sympathies....it's been driving me nuts too. I'd love to post the ad for my 2009 CTS with only 8913 miles on it, but no luck. I've sent notes to moderators, the administrator, and the webmaster. No luck, and no Facebook for me either - direct log on.

    Cheers,

    I think jimmy meant the original sign-up not the current login method. That would possibly introduce a bug to those accounts that signed up from FB.

    That is what I meant. There are several bugs only present in accounts that registered through facebook. I sent a note to sal about your problem. But bear in mind he has a lot on his plates and the classifieds are causing lots of problems lately.

    You are not really supposed to do this, but you might try creating a new account and see if you can post an ad from the new account.

    re: Classified Ad Help-If you have a problem READ THIS

    Gotcha - my misunderstanding. I create web pages for friends and their businesses, and understand how frustrating it can be to try to find the coding that creates these issues. Jimmy, I may try to create a new account to see if that resolves the issue. If it does, that would provide a departure point in trying to figure out what is causing this to happen to some forum members. Thanks!

    I logged in with a new account - FlyNLow1 - the ad setup worked as it was supposed to with the "thread prefix" visible. It would appear that the problem is in the account setup. Hope that helps - and speaking of help - thanks to all of your for your assistance! [Now...anyone want to buy a beautiful 2009 CTS with only 8913 miles on the odometer? ]

    Not to worry - it's a busy time of the year....

    The latest is that I created a new account, then when I tried to post the ad in the new classified section, it worked - I was able to see the "Thread Prefix" option. I still can't see it under my old/preferred account name [ FlyNLow ], but under my new account [FlyNLow1 ] it's there. Perhaps the issue is in account setup/configuration?

    Thanks for all you do for the Cadillac community!
