For example, when you click on "ICE, Accessories & Parts" you can see further categories like

1. Wheels / Tyres
2. ICE
3. Performance mods
4. Styling mods
5. Others.

I feel this will be useful since there are a large number of items there (50), and looking through them all takes time.
Good point there simplythebest.
The "accessories" section does currently have the most ads in it.
Will await GTO's answer on the feasibility of this.

^ or better yet, it shows all these categories together by default, but if you don't want to see "Wheels / Tyres" you just uncheck it (or something like that) and those entries are not displayed any more.

I think it would be in the best interest of both buyers and sellers to show all the items together. Otherwise some entries amy not be noticed. And for people like me who are looking for good deals in all categories it would mean clicking through each and every folder which is very tedious!!

I know this option exists, but can it be made the default?
Vebmetal, this mod has been completed. Thanks for the suggestion.

The latest upgrade to include images into the forum is a great move. We're starting to fall in love with it. But I think the 'manage attachments' button should be present near quick reply option too. I think vBulletin has an option for it.

And as the IMG tags are removed from all the threads, now many of the old threads are so boring and lifeless all of a sudden. Something should be done to prevent this. It would be very hard to go thru all these threads and post pictures again.
My opinion.

Guys,

Dont worry, we are working on a way to make the pictures remain in all the existing threads. Will be in touch.

Is there something wrong with the time displayed ?? This post timing shows 12:25 whereas I am posting it at 11:25

Edit: I have my time setting set to +5:30 GMT so that should not be an issue.

To quote aah78 :
"DST time changed last year, from April-October to March-November."
Thats the reason times were a bit weird for an hour last nite.

In the Classified Section, could you change the "Asking Price" with "Expected Price" and add another field "Negotiable - Yes/No"

Also, when i tried to replace my signature with the link to my ad in the classified section, i couldn't. Due to my lower number of posts, i'm still a BHP-ian and hence according to the benefits accorded to each level of membership, i can't put an url as my signature . Now my question is, can't it be allowed atleast for the links within TBHP itself?

Arif : Whether the price is negotiable or not may be added to the description.

Signature URLS have been disabled across the board.

GTO, Thanks for adding Photo Upload option to T-Bhp without any restriction on the image resolution however the limit of 500 KB is what i really did not like :( Please increase this to at least 1 MB or 1.5MB which most free image hosts are offering so that we can have some good Hi quality photos instead of pictures in lower resolutions. I know increasing the size to 1MB or 1.5MB can eat up more space on the server but then at least allow to use free image hosts who even offer thumbnail feature if the image size is more than 500 KB.

Thanks.

A high quality jpg upto 1280x1024 size will rarely exceed 500kb.
you can use a software like Faststone etc., to resize the images before posting.
