Is it just me being old?

I enjoy viewing the classified ads and might even buy something someday.

However, there appears to be a plot to keep me from knowing what STATE the item might be located. Am I the only person confused about this new system?

Nope, youíre not. If I donít recognize the city I have to zoom out on the map until I figure out where it is.

Is it just me being old?

There is the map view, which allows you to click on markers or clusters of markers in a specific location. Itís a useful way to browse by location.

However, most people actively shopping for a molded trailer would consider location less important than make, model, and condition. If you do find just the right trailer, there is some advantage in being able to know the city or town within a state. On the old classifieds people were always asking, ďWhere in Texas are you located?Ē

On the other hand Iíve found the message function a bit cumbersome, in part because the classified site requires a fresh log-in on every visit. When you get a message notification, the link only takes you to the home page, and you have to figure out how to log in and navigate to your message, in addition to typing in your credentials every single time.

Thereís some weirdness about scrolling and zooming. If youí zoom in on a picture, it wonít scroll. Itís inconvenient on a small screen.

Last, Iím not keen on the discussions being duplicated in the ads. Discussions sometimes go sideways- that was an ongoing issue in the old classifieds- and Iíd have preferred the new ads be kept ďclean.Ē Duplicating everything in two places kind of defeats the point of having two places.

You're not the only one. I haven't been able to read any of the Classified Ads since they made the change. I know it was meant to be an improvement, but it has blocked me out completely. When I click on the Classified section, or Ad, this is what I get every time:

“This site can’t provide a secure connection.
www.fiberglassclassifieds.com uses an unsupported protocol.
ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH”

If the problems can't be corrected, I, for one, would prefer going back to the way it was when everyone could read the ads.

That's what I've been doing too! I thought I was missing the state listing somewhere. Glad to know I am not the only one.

Thatís a defect in the Tapatalk app. It has nothing to do with this website or your new phone. The app is updated from time to time, so perhaps they will fix that glitch next round.

Itís a case of be careful what you wish for, though. Several past updates have added more problems than they fixed! One completely eliminated the message function. Came back with the next update.

You can always access the full website using your phoneís browser.

I could say more, but Iím typing blind now, too.

Since the change, I find the classifieds less user friendly.

Not as good

Somehow this needs to be directed to the website manager. I agree, it's not as good.

The New Classified's are a joke, I tried posting a couple of my campers on there and it wouldn't let me put the city that I'm was from and couldn't get my pictures to post.. It has a list and a blank box asking for the city, but everytime I typed in my city it said not found. So I typed in the largest city closest to me Huntsville, Al. still said not found, the only thing I could get it to do was pick Nashville or Birmingham because they were on the list and both are over a hundred miles away from me not even close to me.. It was just the biggest pain in the ass so I just quit trying.. I'm going to try something else Craigslist or RV trader I guess. A real shame too, because I've been a member on here for years and never had this kind of problem.......................
