How to Edit a Post

We've seen a trend occurring here on PetClassifieds.US where someone starts a new thread, writes what they'd like to write and then submits it for approval. We approve the thread and then we see another thread created a little while later. This new thread is almost identical to the previous one. We then notice that the member deleted the previous thread because they wanted it replaced by the new one. The reason they give for deletion is something like, "Needed to update some information..." or something like that.

I'm here to say that there's no need to delete an existing thread due to updated information. All you need to do is simply edit it. To edit a post inside of a thread, scroll down to the bottom of the thread and then click on the Edit link. From there, the post will become editable once more and you can update whatever you'd like to update. When you're finished, save the post and if it hasn't been approved by us yet, we'll approve it. If it's already been approved, the post will update immediately. It's really that easy, so again, there's no need to delete what you've already created. Simply edit it from now on to update the information contained within it.

How To Delete a Post or a Thread

If you would no longer like the thread you created on this website to be live and active, you may delete it. Be warned though, if you initially created the thread, when you delete it, all posts that were written after it will be deleted as well. To delete the thread, simply scroll to the bottom of your first post in the thread and locate the Delete link. Click that link and follow the easy instructions that appear.

The same steps apply for deleting individual posts that you may have added to someone else's thread. If you scroll to the bottom of your post in their thread, you can click the Delete link there and follow the instructions thereafter.

How To Add, Delete & Update Photos in a Post

If you'd like to either add, delete or update photos in your post, you can do so easily. To accomplish this task, you'll need to first navigate to the post in question. You'll also need to be logged into your account. Once you're at the post, scroll down the bottom of it. Then, click the Edit link. When you do that, you'll notice that the post goes into edit mode and that you can edit both the text as well as any images that have been previously posted.

If you'd like to add a photo, scroll to the bottom of the post again and click on the Attach Files button. Then, navigate to your image(s) and upload it from there. Once it's uploaded to our website, you'll need to insert it into your ad. Find a spot in your ad and then click either the Thumbnail or Full Image button. When you're finished, click the Save button.

If you'd like to delete an image, first delete it from your ad by clicking on it and then pressing the Delete key on your keyboard. Then, click on the Delete button that's near the uploaded file below.

If you'd like to update an image that's already been included in a post, simply delete the original photo and then add a new one in its place. This is a very straightforward process.

Let us know if you have any trouble and we'd be happy to help. Thanks!

Interested in a Pet? How to Contact a Seller

If you're interested in getting in touch with someone on this website, doing so is simple. You have a few different options. You can either visit the page they posted on and respond to whatever it is they shared directly on that page (below their post) or you can roll over their username and click the Start Conversation (Pro feature only) button to converse with them that way. The preferred method for discussing something with someone on a forum like this is to respond to their post directly beneath it. That way, your reaction will be public and others will be able to see the same information. So if you're interested in something that another member has for sale, for instance, ask them questions about that item publicly. They'll answer publicly and others will benefit from your question and their answer.

How to View Your Thread & Post Statistics

If you're interested in seeing how many views your thread (advertisement) has received, you can do so easily. Simply log into your account and click the Forum link up at the top of the site. Then, click the Find Threads link directly below that. If you're logged in, you should see all the threads you've started with the statistics to the right of each thread title. Mind you, you need to be on a desktop or a device with a larger screen to see the number of views. If you're using a phone, you may be able to turn it sideways to make the screen wide enough to see the stats.

Also, if you click the Threads With Your Posts link below the previous one, you'll see all the threads that you've contributed to and their number of views as well. This may be helpful if you're interested in seeing what kind of exposure a particular thread has received because your post is in there as well.

I hope this helps!

How to Add a Youtube Video to Your Post

If you've ever posted anything to our forum, you probably already know that it's extremely easy to use. Uploading and attaching photos to your posts is a snap. Including photos is expected, but did you know that you can also embed Youtube videos to your posts as well? It's true. And it's even easier than including photos.

To include a Youtube video in your post, you'll first need to have that video live on Youtube.com. If it's your video and it hasn't been uploaded yet, go to your Youtube account and upload it. If it's someone else's video, then that's already taken care of.

Go to Youtube.com and find the video you're interested in. Then, once you're on the video's web page, copy the URL from the address bar that's located at the top of the browser. After that's been copied, come back to this website and begin writing your post. To include the video, all you need to do is paste the URL somewhere in the post. That's it. The process is finished. If you preview the post, you should see the embedded video and once you save it, the rest of the world will see it too.
