    How the hell does someone get an image onto a cl post in the jobs section??
    I see ads with images but when I go to post, there is nowhere to edit or enter any image.
    What am I missing?

    Have you tried using HTML?

    Place this in your ad and replace your image URL between the quotes:

    <img src="http://your-image-url-here.com">

    I think that the day of image ads has come to an end. I have been playing around with images for the past 3 hours and not one of my post with an image has went through. i used several different private ip's, so I know its not just my problem. I have however been able to post ads with text only. no images and no pics. I was able to post one link in normal http://... format, but after the first one went through I have been unable to post links using a link from the same domain. I using sub1.domain.com format. One sub went through but not another. posting ads with links minus the http:// seems to work fine though.

    So there you have it another change so dont get used to doing one thing for an extended period of time. I was going to make a seperate thread for this just to give everyone a heads up but I thought it was appropriate to post it here instead. so the game continues. If you have any advice on how to get hyper links in post, please let us know.

    good luck,
    will

    I sell stuff on Craigslist frequently and use the "img" linking and it works fine. I use Image Shack or one of the many free photo hosting services out there.

    when you use a lot of images, your ads won't show. i usually use one big image that links to my product and use my keywords as alternative text for SEs.
    if you over stuff your images with keywords, your ads won't show.

    craigs*list has become very annoying. you can post several ads and a lot of them wont show. they will just let you keep posting like a dummy all day and not give you any indication that your ads are not being published.

    I have grown weary of using craigslist as well. I have performed several test, and today was going to be the big day that I posted 100+ ads but I guess that wont be happening.

    I post under jobs several times a day. Here's all you got to do. By the way if your worried about using up bandwidth post an ad on Backpage.com under jobs and use the image you want. Right click on the image and copy image location and paste it inside here

    Okay I'm gonna rename this thread Craigslist ad nauseum.
    I am gonna bust a nut trying to figure this fucker out but can somebody please tell me how this cocksucker (apologies if it's a BHW member!) can get this post in almost every city in the jobs/etc section? And if you try and flag the bastard...IT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING!
    And his posts are so obvious (and consistent): All caps in the title and always with a bit of code for some reason. For example, "GREAT OPPORTUNITY!!! (V242) or DISCOVER PROVEN MONEY RESULTS.0670

    FUCK YEAH! I am IN that muther now! Okay I'm not sure how long my post will last on craigs but I got the bugger in anyway.

    Okay, blackseo and whoever else, go to that link in my previous post about the one guy who's making it in. I have to assume he's using some auto poster but he has the same ad in almost every city under jobs, etc (@ pizan, no some cities do charge others don't but I don't know why). Anyway, go to almost any bf city under jobs etc and you will see this guys image ads. Same ads over and over.

    Just look at all of his titles. Why he is doing it I don't know but they're always caps and they always end with .(a period) and some 4 digit number.

    But look at his source code!!!
    So I copied the bastards style and got in. Let's see how long it's there.

    funny,
    when I tried it; didnt work. I have to assume that there is some mechanism that allows for one post from a certain ip address to possess a image, and even so the post must meet minimum standards. As I have tried earlier this seems to hold true. I have also noticed that post come from private image host rather than popular ones seem to get through. It seems as though there is a one image hosted post per IP or a one hyperlink post per ip. You will also notice that most if not all of this guys image post are made before 2pm est. which means that there was some big change or he posted all of his post between this time. You will notice that most post after this time have no images, and if they do they are not in other cities and/or they come from little known image host.

    I definitely hope I am wrong
    maybe we can communicate via i'm
    then post our results later

    Well, the update as of 8:30 PST is no earnings but I think I might be on to something.
    Right now, the most important thing is Lakers vs Suns
    The CL post has not been flagged so that's good news.
