Having to view the page source code to get the list ID is really bad administration.
It should be displayed as text under the edit list popup.
Just my 2 cents...
Sorry I missed this question before. Can you give me a bit more information as to what you're trying to do? Are we talking about front-end users or admin users?
For Classified ads on the front end, we do have a "Save to list" feature that allows users to create lists of their favorite ads. Once they create a list, they can go to the User Dashboard to see all their lists there:
Once they go to the list, as I show above, there is a print button on the right of the list title. That will allow them to print ad listings at once.
This is great for Garage Sales, for example, or houses.
If your users are logged in when they place an ad through Ad Owl, the ads are automatically associated to their user account. If they are associated to their user account, we can show them in the User Dashboard. You have to enable a specific option for this feature to be enabled (you can ask our Customer Support team for help on this).
Note that this will NOT affect the Ad Owl print submission - only the online classified ad.
Let me know if this makes sense or if you have more questions!
Does anyone else have this issue? How are you running ads in the mobile positions?
See a map of the available regions here:
However, you can very easily ad more "positions" into an available ad region, even if it is already in use. This way, you can target a new ad just to that position, and if it is the only ad assigned to that position, it would not rotate with other ads.
To add another position, go to your Banner Ad application, and click on the settings panel (gear in upper right corner). You'll get the ad regions manager:
Edit the region where you would like to add another position, and change it to "2" or more.
Then, use the position targeting to assign your add to the new position in that region. Like so:
The ads rotate separate in the in-story1 versus the in-story2 ad positions. So, if only one ad were assigned to in-story2, it would not rotate.
I'll go ahead and mark this as answered, but let me know if this doesn't make sense! =)
We would find it useful to have the option of placing a tabbed region in other positions in the main column — for example center-one-index, center-four-index, center-seven-index or center-ten-index.
Recently we had an issue with this as we were trying to display a map to the location where a train struck a pedestrian. When we input the longitude and latitude (with seven decimal places) and clicked the view button the preview showed the correct location. When we saved the article and previewed the resulting map was 8 streets from the railroad track.
In the same line of thought it might be useful to give us a way to override the default zoom level.
