    This message now appears when you are listing a new ad:


    This affects anyone that uses HTML to insert images into their craigslist ads.


    It doesn't indicate when this will take effect.


    Will this change affect you?

    If it's just the photos, then I really don't think the change will add appreciably to the time to do a craigslist add. You can simply upload the images after you've saved them to your computer. Also, you can upload 8 photos, so that should suffice for almost any add I can think of. Gary

    Another issue facing members who use craigslist is that the listings expire after 45 days. I've got a tickler file that shows me on day 46 what I need to relist, & relisting is a snap--takes 1-2 minutes only. Just go to your email inbox & find the listing, then click relist. I find that I sell just as much on any subsequent relisting as I sell on the first listing. I've relisted items as many as 5-6 times. Gary
