Craigslist & Postlets?? (by NE [PA]) Posted on: May 15, 2012 7:14 PM

Has craigslist stopped allowing postlets? I have been posting on Craigslist for a while using postlets to make my ads look a little better. Problem is, my ad registers in my account as active, but never shows up in the website. I even canceled the ad and re-listed in in my 2nd account and the same thing happened, shows as active, but doesn't show up in the listings. Any ideas?

I just checked my ad, which is done with Postlets. No problems.

Search through the list and anything that has an img at the end (vs. pic) is usually a Postles generated ad.

I've posted an add before that took 4 hours or so to finally show up. Not sure why. Do you have a filter on (pets allowed, price range, etc) that might be excluding it when you search?

I have had that happen to me several times - and I never could figure out what was goign on. However, it certainly was frustrating as I have come to rely so much on CL.

In each case I had problems, I waited a day or two and then I could post.

There is a help section and some other related sites not run by CL that talk about ghosting and other problems that might be of help to you - they weren't to me.

It is called GHOSTING and you need to change your postlet or establish another account....CL does not like back links and if you really want to solve the problem, try vFlyer html

After not posting on CL for quite sometime, I recently had a problem getting my old postlet ads to post. CL would not let it post because it had my email address in the postlet. Once I deleted the email address, I had no problem getting it to post.

Ghosting is a common problem for property managers posting their rentals on Craigslist.

If you need assistance take a look at

Using this you won't get ghosted. If you only have a couple of properties, it probably won't make sense for you, but if you have multiple properties it's a great program.
