On the front page for the ActiveSET.org Classifieds, you will see a navigation bar along the top of the pages that contains options such as Search Ads, Post Ads, Modify Ads, and so forth. Please click on one of these links, depending on the action that you want to take. If you post an ad, you will be asked to select a password for that ad. You will also be given an ad number. In the future, anytime that you want to modify or delete that ad, you will need to know the ad number and password. Therefore, please make a note of them.
Within the navigation bar at the top of the page, click on the "Post Ads" link. You will then be taken to the "Post A Classified Ad" page. Here, you will see a form with many fields. You will also be asked to select a password for that ad. When you have filled out the form, click on the "Preview My Ad" button. You will be shown how your ad will look and given the opportunity to make any corrections before submitting it. If you are satisfied with its appearance, click on the "Submit My Ad" button to submit it. You should then see an acknowledgement page if your ad was successfully submitted.

No. You do not have to use your real name or company when you post an ad. The program will simply publish whatever you put in the name fields. If you feel more comfortable, you can use a nickname or pseudoname.
No. You can not use HTML tags in the body of the message. If you put HTML tags in your message, the script will just throw out everything in between the <>'s.
Please describe the item that you are trying to sell in as much detail as you can. If you're posting a help wanted ad, describe the type of work, what skills, education, or experience is required, the geographic location of the job, and any other information relevant to this particular position. If you're posting an employment wanted ad, tell potential employers about the type of work you desire, your skills, education, and experience, what geographic areas you would prefer to work in, and any other relevant information about yourself.
Your classified ad most likely did not show up because either you looked in the wrong category (such as "Job Openings" instead of "V.E. Reader Wanted") or you specified search criteria for text that does not appear in your ad. If so, please verify that you selected the correct category and then broaden your search by leaving more of the search fields blank. Also, if you did not submit payment or your member log-in after submitting your ad, your classified ad was not posted. Please go back and submit your ad again with your payment or member log-in.
Within the navigation bar at the top of every page you will find the "Modify Ads" link. If you click on this link, you will see a search form. The form will ask for the ad number and the password that you entered with this ad. Once you have entered these, click on the "Search for Ad to Modify" button. If you entered the correct information, your ad will be displayed with a modification form beneath it. The current information from your ad will already be filled in, so you only need to modify the fields that you want to change. Once you have filled in the form, click on the "Submit Modification(s)" button. You should then see an acknowledgement page if your ad was successfully modified.
Within the navigation bar at the top of every page you will find the "Delete Ads" link. If you click on this link, you will see a search form. The form will ask for the ad number and the password that you entered at the time you placed the ad. Once you have entered these, click on the "Search for Ad to Delete" button. If you entered the correct information, your ad will be displayed with a warning beneath it indicating that you are about to delete it. If you are sure that you want to delete this ad, click on the "Delete This Ad" button. You should then see an acknowledgement page if your ad was successfully deleted.
Your search criteria may have been too narrow. Go back to the search form and leave more of the search fields blank, or click on the "New Search" button and do a general search. For the broadest possible search, simply click on the "Browse All Ads" link that appears underneath the navigation bar near the top of each page.
The results of your search will be displayed on the search results page. To see more of your search results, you can click on the "See The Next 10 Hits" button beneath the ads displayed on this page.
All of the classified ads will list either the e-mail address of the person who posted the ad or their phone number. The e-mail listings are also links, so you can click on the person's e-mail address to send the person a reply message directly.
