Congratulations on a job well done. From a buyer's perspective, the clhttp://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php?/topic/195373-classifieds-we-are-live/assifieds are MUCH more user friendly. Thanks.
What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?

Thanks Mods and admin for all your efforts (particularly Wim - you need a holiday after all that :thumbup:) . It's a great community that only survives because of hard working volunteers. We mostly hate change but it's the only thing that brings progress! Onwards and upwards... :bunny01:

I'm so glad that you've noticed that Wim in particular needs to be singled out for the kudos. He has put in many unpaid hours (I'm surprised that he still has any hair left :roflmho: ) to make the new Classifieds work.

Regards,
Soki

Yes, they have. No special conversions were done for the skins, however, other than making them work with Classifieds. If you look at the manuals, you may notice that several different skins were used in the preparation of these manuals.

I like the look, but I'm not sure it's useful to separate high and low volume sellers. I really don't want to have to peruse two separate sections when I'm looking for a pen to buy.

If you don't want to do that, you don't need to. What you see depends on the level you are looking at. You can either look at a category by itself, including all subcategories, or at subcategories individually. One of the nice things in the system.

I think it is a great idea this new section...!!

I hope that the collector make an habitude on it like the old marketplace.

I want to have some info:

1) It is possible bump the post or not..??

2) It is possible insert the value (USD, Euro) in the first page because from list of items it is not specify that.

I hope that this new section can increase the deals on this great forum..!! :thumbup:

FYI... Classifieds are non functional for me with the mobile skin on any platform.

Not yet. We have asked for this, but we don't know when it will be implemented. Right now there only is the option for a single currency, which is why we have chosen to put the currency in the custom fields list.

I hope that this new section can increase the deals on this great forum..!! :thumbup:

Thank you. It certainly makes browsing for items a lot more pleasant. I do hope that the discussion forums also grow :D.

Warm regards, Wim

Yes, sorry, Classifieds is not functional with the Mobile skin yet. That is scheduled for the planned update after the IP.Board 3.2 release, AFAIK.

The Lo-Fi skin does work with it, however.
