New For Sale Auto Formatting
« on: September 16, 2014, 04:39:53 pm »
If you venture to the Car Parts or Cars for Sale threads and try and write a post you will notice the following.



Filling it in as appropriate. Selecting collection only will remove the Delivery Cost box.

If anything is missed out then the form will not post.



That results in the below being posted.




Hopefully this will make the FS section much clearer and easier to use.

Make sure the link is "clean".... e.g www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/image.jpg

If its got any rubbish surrounding in or ends in .html it wont work

Photobucket it rubbish i dont know why people use it. Dropbox is much better for stuff like this.

Photobucket will work fine providing you enter a valid url to the image.
Send me the url you are trying to enter.

Ok when you get the link from photobucket you need to select the direct link not any of the others.

I modified the page so people did not have to add [img] around the images as i thought it would be easier. If you are posting an image in for sale section direct links only please.
