    Hey all,

    Wanted to open up the floor on improvements to the Classifieds.

    I found a good mod that will allow the thread to be marked as sold or closed. I will mark in BOLD red letters SOLD next to the thread title when it is sold. Seems like this would work in making it easier to browse the threads there as opposed to having to read every post trying to figure out if it's sold or not.

    Any other thoughts?

    Is it done by the seller, or by moderators?

    Will we still have the option to Close the ad ourselves?

    I've noticed that feature went away for other sections, was wondering if it was still available on the classifieds.

    Here i what it does:
    [FONT=verdana, geneva, lucida, lucida grande, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"This modification will allow you & your members (based on usergroup permissions) to mark a thread as "Sold". It will add the prefix "SOLD" to the thread title, and if set in the admincp - it will also close the thread. If you run a classified forum for your members this will give you a way to let users add a Sold prefix when the item is gone. Admins and mods can use to make items sold as well."[/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana, geneva, lucida, lucida grande, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Basically under thread tools at the top it adds the [/FONT][FONT=verdana, geneva, lucida, lucida grande, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]option[/FONT][FONT=verdana, geneva, lucida, lucida grande, arial, helvetica, sans-serif] to select it as sold.[/FONT]

    On some other sites, after an item is sold, I like to post sold and say something nice about how the deal went down, if that's the case. Usually leave it open for 1 day to help sellers/buyers feedback for future sales. Then delete post. Is that possible here?

    New guy here and not eligible to post a for sale item yet, but I think it's a great idea. As mentioned, other classified sites allow you to post the item is sold. Another one I'm active on allows you to even mention that a sale is pending. All of this is good info for future buyers. Thanks.....

    You don't want to delete the post. It's good historical info for people to browse if they are trying to get a sense of pricing or market trends for certain items.

    I agree we cannot delete posts, I wanted to at least make it easier to browse the ads and skip over sold items.
