Where has my advert gone ?

Postby Davesport » 20 Jan 2016, 9:46am

I put a post up on the "Complete bikes for sale board" advertising my recumbent at the end of last year. The ad looks like it's no longer there. I can't find any trace of it. Do the classifieds "time out" or am I missing something obvious ?

Clicking "view your posts" brings up all my other posts but the ad isn't there.

Thanks in advance, Dave.

I'm not sure of the exact timescale but if there is no activity on an ad post it gets automatically deleted by the system after a certain period.

Ah, okay. Makes sense and saves the place getting clogged up.

Many thanks for the replies.

Dave.

A bit of advice, is to keep a copy of your advert. It may be that you want to re-post it, or just keep it.

Leave it on the forum, and it will be automatically and irretrievably deleted after 30 days of inactivity.

Point taken :D

That's exactly what I didn't do....yawn. Time to start again.

Many thanks, Dave.
