  • Will you be offering a Classified section for vacation rentals that are geared towards paddlers? Thank you, Alice Hill

    It is certainly something we can consider.

  • Is there a way to delete an ad?

  • Is there a way to edit an ad? In particular, I don't see a way to update the post after a sale occurs, as instructed above.

  • edited December 2016

    Same question here. How does one delete or edit their ad?

  • @FatElmo Kevin at paddling.com, in response to my request, has enabled editing of posts. If you refresh the page, you should see a gear icon next to the star icon near the upper right corner of your post. Click the gear icon and you will see the option to edit.

    It took a couple of days, after he made the change, for the gear icon to appear on my post, so if you don't see the icon, give it a day or two. But probably the change has propagated to everybody by now, not just to me.

  • He says he's working on the delete functionality. Apparently that's not as easy as editing.

  • I want the old Paddling.Net back. This new site is a total pain. I used to visit the old site several times a day. I almost never visit this site. How can we get the old site back. Who owns the old site? I am interested in resurrecting the old Paddling.Net

  • IT's gone forever just like many other things including the dinosaurs after many many millions of years. What was it 65 million? I am sure it's the same owner just updating.

  • However, updating generally means increased functionality - not less. The old Paddling.Net classified ads page was great. Whaaaaa! I miss it!

  • Guys this new set up sucks

  • i agree old site was a site better. Easier to navigate,. I bought a sold a lot of kayaks & gear before, this is a not fun.
    Also liked the calendar, discounts, discussion forums.

  • Fields for the location, price should be added.
    I could help improving the site or you could hire a pro for $1000, I'd be glad to pitch in.

  • Serial number should be included with all postings. It is rare and an old old kayak to not have one. Even my repaint kayak where I filled in the hull number still has numbers on the inside of the hull. I also took pictures of it before filling and painting.

  • Still missing your old classified listings. How can it possibly take this long to get our classified back on track?? Sad!! Can you tell us what the problem is? Maybe someone can fix it!

    Rest assured, we want them up as bad as you do, but we've been working on a new Go Paddling Section that will be launching soon. From there, the new Classified Section is a high priority. Thanks for hanging with us!

  • How to post an ad is a real mystery...is it a "message"? I have instructions from the webmaster which I understand up to the point where it says "start to post". There is no place indicated to post classifieds.
    Does anyone know the answer to this?

    @WTB-OK
    Sure there is. It's under "Categories" at the top left hand side of your screen: Used Gear - Classifieds. Click it and start a new discussion, listing what you've got for sale. Very helpful if you include tags. And your location.

  • Thank you. I will try that.

  • Is there an easier way to find my two postings other than scrolling through? Also received an inquiry so I just "comnent" back under the inquiry. Nothing appears on my original post showing this exchange. I assume my reply goes back direvtly to the unquiry then. Thanks and keep up the good work.

  • @fredsutton123@gmail.com
    Just click on your user name and it will take you to your profile where you'll see your postings.

  • Hmm - accidentally set up my user name as my email address and don't see a way to change user name or delete account and start over. Help please? Thanks!
