    Updated Instructions (new forum feature added):

    When creating a thread, add the prefix of For Sale.

    Once the sale completes, go to the top of the thread on the right and click: Thread Tools
    From the drop-down select: Edit Thread

    Change the prefix to: Sold
    Save Changes and you're golden.

    Original Instructions from XXX 74:

    All,
    Once your item is SOLD, please update the title of your post and add: SOLD at the beginning.
    For example;
    Original Title: For Sale: Set of wheels for the Slingshot: $500
    Once sold: SOLD: Set of wheels for the Slingshot: $500

    To do it, go the thread that you want to edit, on the top click on Thread tools / edit thread / do the change of the title and save.

    This will help all the members to identify the items that are still available vs the ones already sold.

    Thanks,

    XXX

    Thanks for doing that. Learn something new everyday. Can we delete the thread the same way? There are out of date threads that the individual that wrote should delete.

    I am not sure if the members are able to delete or close the threads.
    However, they can go to the thread tools drop down and can see which options they have.

    We had a few instances that some members could not do it. Just report the thread and write a note with the comments and we will fix that for you.
    Thanks !

    Why doesn't my post make the New Posts Tab,?? Is this controlled by another or do I not have access.
    Thanks
