    I am trying to post a classified and every time I do it tells me I can only have 1 ad open at a time. Well I have none open. I click on the link that says 1 open classifieds and it takes me to my feedback page which says open classifieds (0). So I don't know what's up. Any Ideas?

    That was it! Wow, thank you! I don't know why it wasn't telling me I had any open even though that one was!

    I don't honestly know why it doesn't show up either. The easiest method I've found is to just do a "Advanced Search" of your username. I just select the Buy Sell Trade section for the search. It will usually find the open ad for you.

    To find your open ads, you can go to the advanced search here
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/search.php?action=advanced
    Enter your username in the "Search by Username" field.
    Click the "Posts only" radio button
    Under "Additional Search Options" click on "Buy~Sell~Trade" and hit submit.

    Using all these options will give you the best results

    I can't even find anywhere to place a classified, there is no link to click on and when I was in the classifieds and clicked on create a new classified, it just redirects to more classifieds. There is absolutely no way to place an ad at all.

    You have to have 20 posts before you can place an ad in the classifieds. :)

    Here is the link to our Buy Sell and Trade section....

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    You would click on the section you wish to place an ad in, say Chicken Hatching Eggs, and there will be a button beneath that heading that says Create a New Classified. But again, you will have to have 20 posts before you can place an ad. You can go into our New Members section and welcome in some newbies to get your post count up. :)
