The classified ads were changed
in December. You no longer require a site team approval (and can edit your own ads), but do have to initially "start" the ad in a different area than before. It's explained here, which I copied below and emboldened in red:
We recently updated our classifieds system. The new classifieds page can be found here: https://www.forestriverclassifieds.com/
Here's some basic info about using classifieds:
Logging into the classifieds page:
- Any FRF member can post a new ad or respond to an existing on and there is no charge.
- Ads are posted via the new page but not by using forum threads. Folks can post responses on those ads and use the messaging features on the classifieds page to ask a seller questions.
- When a new ad is posted a new thread will be created in this forum automatically. It will include a link to the ad itself as well as some of the info from the ad and helps give greater visibility to ads. There is no "new thread" button in this classifieds forum however as all ads should be placed from the classifieds page.
There is a login button at the top right of the page and you can login with your usual info. Tick the 'stay logged in button'Two-factor authentication:
In order to post an ad for the first time you will need to verify your account via sms (we text you a code which you then paste into the verification field). The new requirement of two-factor authentication is a security measure and while we understand it's an extra step it also is a needed security measure. Scammers are a growing problem in the RV footprint and we want to be proactive about this to help keep members safe.Editing Ads:
If you are unable to complete this process and contact us via the contact link at the bottom of the page for some help.
Members can edit their ads and add photos or additional text. Once your item has been sold please mark the ad "SOLD" and the ad will disappear after a few days.Problem ads
There is a report function (look for the triangle icon) on each ad to report a problem. This will send an alert to the site team who will check out the issue and take any needed action. Ad posting rules:
All ads need to meet the basic guidelines for this site. Please review these if you are unsure about whether your ad is appropriate.
