FAQ: How to Post Classifed Ads to Sac Volvo Club Forum & Where to Find Resources for Buying/Selling

Post by volvie! on Mon Mar 31, 2014 2:34 pm

Hi Everyone,

We do not post classified ads to the mailing list, but we do have this Sac Volvo Club Forum where you are more than welcome to post your classified ad(s).

How to post a Classified Ad on the Sac Volvo Club Forum:

Note: To limit spammers, you must be registered and logged in to see and create posts in the Classifieds/Marketplace section.

1. Navigate to the forum:
http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/sac-volvo-club-forum
or
http://forum.sacvolvoclub.org/

2. Login to the Sac Volvo Club Forum.

Click on the "log in" button on the right of the top menu to log in.
When you are logged in, you should see that the "log in" button has been replaced with a "log out" button.



3. Scroll down to the Classifieds / Marketplace section.

4. Click on For Sale or Wanted category link:

For Sale:
http://forum.sacvolvoclub.org/f12-for-sale

Wanted:
http://forum.sacvolvoclub.org/f13-wanted

5. Click on New Topic.

Once inside the For Sale or Wanted forum, look for a "new topic" button at the top and bottom of the forum frame.
Click on this button to view the full post writing/editing window.



6. Review the Sac Volvo Club Forum policies and rules.



7. Start typing your description of the item you are selling (For Sale Section) or looking for (Wanted Section).

If you are selling a car, some things to consider when describing the car in the ad:
http://forum.sacvolvoclub.org/t6-before-you-post-read-this
(You will need to be registered/logged in to see this post as it is in the For Sale section)

8. When finished typing your message, look for the "notify me when a reply is posted" text and select that check box to be notified via e-mail when someone relies to your topic.

(See screenshot below.)

9. You can also preview your message before sending to see what it will look like before posting.

(See screenshot below.)

10. When you are done, select "send," and your post will be sent to the forum.

If you are new to forums and/or need help registering for the forum, take a look at this topic here:

Since you will need to be contacted by another person to complete the transaction, a couple of notes:
-Register for the forum with a real email address (that you check often).
-Set up your forum account to send personal message notifications to your e-mail (as I do not recommend sharing your e-mail address in the forum posts for spam protection).
For more information about how to change these settings in your forum profile, see this topic:
