The new Classified Ads system is up and running. Selecting Resources | Classified Ads will open a menu in the main screen area. The first menu item, Information, leads to an explanation of the Classifieds organization and who may place ads.
While site visitors will see some listing and viewing format changes, the biggest change in the system is that advertisers place/modify ads themselves directly. Website Administration only reviews the ads for appropriate content. This should make ad placement more efficient for advertisers and timely for viewers.
The new system has administrative advantages, also. Each ad is stored in a table based on ad type making ad management more efficient and consuming less storage.
