Q:- My items images are broken or not working?
A: -When you add a 'URL' path to an image for an item in the item editor page, your image will be displayed in the items details page and the fact that a picture is available will be shown in many search result pages. Follow 'URL' rules when you enter the image path. Here are some simple guidelines:
1. Enter the complete URL ("http://yourISP.com/~Yourhome/imagedirectory/imagename.jpg")
2. Do not include the quotes.
3. Do not use spaces in the URL or file name.
4. Use only '.gif' or '.jpg' file types.
5. Use the exact character case (ie;'.GIF' or '.jpg') as you use at the files location.{Some servers will and some will NOT respect character case}
6. You can test an image URL in the location field in your web browser. If the Image URL is correct the image will be displayed in the browser window.

Q:- Why can't I use my back button off of a listed item?
A: -From a list we often cause our links to open a new window to keep your found set available in the original window. Sometimes the new window appears over the old window in such a way as to appear to be the same window with new information in it. Of course the new window has no history and thus no 'Back' to go to. Once finished with researching your listed item, you can simply dismiss the front window and you still have the list in the original window.
Q:- I continuously create links to "My Garage" yet, the next day the link goes to another garage?
A: -The Garage Sale Home Page site is rapidly growing and changing. Many of the links are created dynamically and should not be booked marked because they may not point to the same page. For a permanent link to your Garage/Yard use the "My Garage" button (in the header of every page). At the 'Sign In' page enter your username and password, click the 'continue' button to go to the Garage/Yard editor page. To the right of your Garage/Yard name is a 'Tools' table. The last item in the table is a link to your Garage/Yard that you can copy and paste as a permanent link to your Garage/Yard.
