    Classifieds Manager is REALLY Annoying

    The spam from the classifieds manager wouldn't be nearly so annoying if the links actually went somewhere. Instead, though, they just dump you into the classifieds section (which is annoyingly cumbersome to browse). This makes it MUCH more difficult to view/find ads, which discourages purchasing.

    Did that just start happening?
    I wonder if it's because I upgraded the software?

    Usually it just the most recent ad that is included in the new posts, isn't it?

    It looks like something ran amuck with the update.

    Edit: I deleted the posts from today.

    Well, the huge list today prompted me to post... But my primary issue is one of "you can't get there from here." Under new posts, the classifieds manager posts the titles of ads all the time, but clicking on them doesn't actually take you anywhere useful.

    Gotcha. I'll see if I can get the title to link directly to the ad.

    For the forum or classifieds?

    I use a RSS feed for the classifieds on the home page.

    it's hit or miss. Links are working now but there are sometimes where it will direct it into a 404.
