I have a user saying “went there and having no luck posting my ad , then it tells me time’s up”.

What is the Math CAPTCHA time out set to and is there a way to change it?

I don’t know what is stopping him from posting his ad in a timely fashion (have to ask him for more details), however without knowing the time out timing I really can’t give him a good answer.

The client responded to my inquiry:

“ok , where it tells me “Item Price” , i put in the price $25 . Then red letter words come up telling me to type in price . So again i re-did that about 3 times ; yet it keeps telling me that”

It seems that the price field requires a numerical value only, however the client does not realize that and adding a ‘$’ to the price makes it invalid. Maybe adding the currency symbol in front of the field would solve this issue.

Why is the price field numerical only? There is no math function being applied, is there? Why not have it as a string variable and call it ‘Price/Terms’, so people can have something like ‘$250 or best offer’ or ‘Free to good home’ or ‘Trade for …’ (also no need to set a currency symbol).

Also the client had issues with the File Upload, however I will add that to the ‘Upload Files very breakable‘ thread.

Hi Wayne,

I have added this to our feature enhancement list as well and I will get back with you once I know more. Thank you for the suggestion!

Hi Wayne,

Here is what the developer had to say on this issue:

The price field has always been “numbers only” because AWPCP separates the display of the currency from the amount used. It also allows us to handle currency formats (decimal vs. comma) by making it not a string. In the database, we need it as a number to do range searches (price > min and price < max)
