Zip code feature in classifieds

Does anyone know why the zip code feature doesnt work for me in the classifieds? I am in wisconsin and it gives me a distance of 31 miles for cars located in Louisiana (1000 mi away).

Thanks-

Re: Zip code feature in classifieds

About all I can suggest is to delete your cookies for camaros.net, then when you go back to the classifieds the box will show up allowing you to re-enter your zip.

All it takes is one missing letter or a typo and it's messed up until you reset your cookies.

Re: Zip code feature in classifieds

I just checked it on a couple of items and it worked fine. Try a different zip code near you. Mine calculated ok 53157 Pell Puddle,WI.

Re: Zip code feature in classifieds

I tried clearing my cookies and all files in the temp Internet files with no luck. All I get when i enter any zip is the box reappears and nothing is entered...

I am hoping to find a car close to me and this would sure help..If anyone has any advice I would sure appreciate it,

Re: Zip code feature in classifieds

If the box is not taking your zip code, then perhaps your security settings are too high or something like norton personal firewall is configured to stop them.

check under Tools > Internet Options > privacy in your browser and see if the settings are higher than medium, although you are able to post here, so that impies they are working. I'll look into it further, we are due for an upgrade so will try and slip that in to see if it helps.

Re: Zip code feature in classifieds

If it doesn't work on lthe main page or a list of different ads, try it on a specific ad. That usally will set the cookie and then it will show up on the other ads. I have had to do this off and on. Seems it never works just on the list of ads but on a specific ad it sets the cookie and then shows up correct on the list.
