Better still the bulletin board having a self moderated classified space, with a small charge for measured
bandwidth useage. EVERY classified could have its own .jpg or .gif

phpbb.com

With that board it can be done and it is open source
Go on spoil yourself! Try it! Say thank you to University of Chicago Apaché php.
Nothing more. developed since 1991

gar may be mistaken in the origin of the php
bulletin board as it is now a European business, but it may originally have been Chicago University

rob,

would the mag not then lose a little revenue and a little support? With phpbb.com no such thing would happen as it is much much easier to control. Rob's idea is an excellent one; it would take time to catch on, would need as much moderating as the mag classified but given time would be the accepted place for classified ads. With phpbb.com it is sufficiently flexible to allow small charges for the individual advert, just like the mag. and photos too.

It is terribly easy to install and just a link from this existing message board to start off with at the top.
