Sorting listings

2orangeharleys ·
When I relist I like to sort my listings by first filtering just the auctions and then sorting them in acsending order alphabetically. For the last week I haven't been able to do that. It will only sort in descending order and as soon as I apply any filters it goes back to sorted by creation date and then if I try to sort it by title, it removes all of my search filters. I figured this would go away in a few days but it's been over a week now.

Hi lynne, The Auctiva Uploader actually requires that an Active X or Java add-on be installed on your browser in order to operate and, given that you are using a computer at a public library, it is likely the security settings on the browser there are configured to automatically block the installation of browser add-ons such as the ones the Auctiva Uploader uses.

Re: Template Layout Help?

Hi, The closest to a two column design would be placement of the pictures in a vertical column next to a text column using the template selection page on the one-page lister, e.g. Grouping: Vertical with Alignment: Left (or Right). Try that. Is that what you have in mind? If you really mean two columns of text for the description and the Seller Details elements, that would take creation of a custom template. Danno

Hi GrayRabbit, The code immediately gave me a clue it was copied from Microsoft Office / Word, possibly prior to the new Word paste feature (icon for that on the description toobar). However, even with that feature, you can have a result that may not be the exact same as the original word document. Word operates with an incompatible mark-up language to HTML, and that can cause visual differences and even hiccups like code moved to other than desired location. The better methods for desktop...

The new editor seems to prefer CSS inline style over font tags for it's own code creation. That's not really any surprise, as most of the modern up-to-date editors tend to avoid obsolete (termed depreciated) code. I would have to see code examples to run any checks or speculate on why it's dropping fonts and sizes, other than if those were originated from incompatible sources, like Office/Word. Posting examples is always the best method to get assistance, and to get Auctiva's attention, i.e.
