Place Ad is the primary page where you enter all the data for your classified ad. Place Ad can be accessed from the front end via the Place Ad link, or from the back end via Place Ad button in the Ad Management Panel or Listings panel.
The Place Ad page uses the short code [ AWPCPPLACEAD ] (removing the spaces to activate it).
Place Ad may take you through as many as 4 steps to place an ad, depending on what your image and payment settings are. These steps and settings are outlined here:
|Workflow Step||Paid or Free Mode||Setting to Activate|
|Select Category/Pick Payment Plan||Paid mode only||Payment Settings (Enable paid mode)|
|Payment Confirmation||Paid mode only||Payment Settings (Enable paid mode)|
|Enter Details||Both||n/a (always present)|

Paid mode: The image count from the Fee Plan
If you have fee plans with 0 image count OR if you do not allow images on free boards, you will not see the Upload Images step at all.
