John

Hi John, this is almost always the result of submitting an ad that has either (brackets) or inch" marks in the body.

the program chokes on them and displays a blank screen. please give it another try, making sure none of those characters are in the ad.
otherwise it seems ok, we are getting more ads lately than ever before.

You are absolutely correct.
I read that in the posting instructions and still put brackets in my posting.
My fault.
Thank you for replying.

Al,

I placed 2 test and they didn't stick. I used IE5.5 and previewing showed find but submiting took me back to a blank ad form. One I placed in 69 parts the other was Any Year.... There are several posted today though... I didn't use any quotes or brackets...

Would my camaros.net e-mail address kick out?

just did some testing and mine all went through

It should have no problem with the camaros.net address.

I know what I did!!! After previewing I hit the back button so I was on the form screen. Then I hit the "Place Ad" button just below and to the left of the preview button. Duh! that button just takes you to an empty form. I never really submitted... DOH!!
