Yes, I will add that.

I will make it appear only when it can be renewed though, similar to how the Manage screen functions.

I can repost it - email me and tell me which one you want restored.

I restored it for you.
Since it is an older ad that I think got deleted for being over 90 days old, you need to renew it or it will expire again next Monday.


General admin note:
Why next Monday?
I currently only remove ads over 90 days old once/week - every Monday morning my time.

I realized I never explained why this is true.

Reason(s):
As the admin, I often delete duplicate ads / reposts / scam ads that are on the site.
I would not want these users to be able to restore these ads that are deleted for administrative reasons.
The solution is that no one can undelete an ad.

Yes, this creates more admin work for me sometimes but it's minimal.

A "preview" has been requested in the past but it's not an easy thing to add to the site so I haven't looked at it.
Draft is sort of different in that the ad would be "placed" but in draft mode so not visible except to you.

I will think about what is involved in that.


Deactivation
You are correct about it deactivating it immediately.

Example: Activating it an hour later puts it an hour down in the listings; it won't be on top. If it's car this might not matter due to limited ads but parts might be an issue if a lot of other parts get posted in that category.

Note:
Posting something and immediately deactivating it is sort of a bad idea for another reason:
All the classifieds alert emails still get sent out so anyone who gets an email notification will see your ad is deactivated and may think it's already pending/sold.

What do you think about being able to save an ad as a draft so you can complete it at a later date? Then when you finish it, release it as a new ad. I know you can already create a partial ad then deactivate it immediately for later release, but then you miss out on the coveted "New Ad" status.

Sometimes I am creating an ad and realize I need a better photo that I can't take right away. It would be nice to be able to save most of the ad so you can quickly finish it later.

You cannot but I can undelete them if you contact me.

I see you have 2 ads that are deleted.
I restored both to inactive status so you can delete and/or activate either of them as needed.

I would like to know how to repost a deleted ad. There doesn't seem to be a way to do it from the deleted item page. I have read all the FAQs and searched everywhere for the answer. Can anyone help me? Thank you.

I removed that to discourage people from renewing a whole page of ads at once, which is totally annoying.

I recommend people renew 5-10 at once MAX. This ensures your ads are:
1. Not skipped over in mass
2. People don't get annoyed and block you from the listings
3. I have found it's more effective to repost ads a few at a time each day. I make more sales on more parts this way, often from ads I did not renew that day.

Thanks for the recommendation- I'll try that in the future.

I am the only one who can undelete ads.

The only reason for this would be if you accidentally deleted something (it happens). Email me link(s) to the ad(s) and I will take care of it.

If it expired after 90 days, it is ok to repost it as a new ad. This is the one exception to reposts. Smile

Is there a way to bring back "deleted" ads? They're all still saved under "deleted" but I dont see any way to post them back to the classifieds.
