I just noticed this evening CL has added images next to the ad title. If you hover over the image, a larger pop up will show. It can be turned on or off. I love it, I can now cruise faster. Ads that say tractor, but it really is an LT with a 32" deck can be skipped without clicking. Very convenient, imho.

What say you others? I'm sure none of you have noticed, I'm sure you folks' deals just fall out of the sky.......... :laughingteeth:

I'm not so sure that's a new feature, have you adjusted any settings recently?

Seems I've been seeing this for a while. Maybe it is being brought on line at different locations over a period of time. I guess I don't see any real advantage to it. If it is something of interest I usually open the ad anyway.

New to us bumpkins in Minnesnowta, it seems.

No changes on my browser lately. Heck, I've probably got more cookies than the Girl Scouts, come to think of it....

Ita been slowly working it's way around. I noticed that Erie had it before Youngstown and Meadville.

It is nice, but the whole system sure threw a wrench in search tempest. Their search is awful now because CL changed a bunch of stuff. Dead links, expired ads, the works.

Um sorry, :hijacked: yes, I like the new feature. Got on a bit of a rant there :blush2:

I've been using it for a couple of months. You can turn it off if you don't want it.

Are you sure you just hand't noticed the "show image" text? It's been that way as long as I can remember but they did recently move it on the screen.

Not up to the Frozen North yet either. It would definitely help but it would also help if I took the time to see if it said "pic".

Thanks,

Its been around for about 6 months here in N.Y. I really like it. Makes Craigslist much easier to use. The only thing I noticed is sometimes it takes the page longer to load.
