Classifieds & Post formatting

Recommended Posts

Is there no longer a classifieds on the site?  I was just thinking I might like to buy some used gear and I couldn't find it.

Also, is there any way you guys could re-add the formatting button when replying to posts?  It was nice to be able to flip back and forth to the [.quote][./quote] tags and mess around under the hood.  I actually find it's easier to edit some stuff that way.  Otherwise, it's awesome that quotes don't contain every single other quote... makes the forums way easier to read.  Good job :)

Cheers,

Short answer to the "Formatting" or "View Source" button is no, we can't easily re-add it.

The new version of the software effectively eliminated "BB Code", the mockup language you could use in View Source to fix things. The only native option now is to allow direct access to HTML, but that isn't checked or screened. Which means someone could easily embed inappropriate code in a post and cause problems, so we can't open that up to general membership.

I don't know what happened to Classifieds; that's a front page thing that Scot manages. The new board software actually allows for a classfieds like sub forum, but it would take some doing to set it up.

OK, thanks for the reply.

Ahhh, you're right.  That's where the classifieds are.  I knew I had seen them somewhere.
