Listing your property to Let
Firstly you must be a registered user of the site. This is totally free and can be done using The sign up page.
Once you fill out and submit the registration form, you will be sent an e-mail, which you must reply to, in order to confirm that we are able to contact you. This is now necessary
Listing your Property to let
You can create a listing, by clicking on the Create or amend
a property link (its under the Landlords menu item). Note, if you are not logged on, the
system will prompt you to do so.
If this is your first advert, you will be taken straight to the create a listing form.
If you have placed listings previously, then you will be presented with a list of your existing properties to let.
this list will include action options for each listing, including adding pictures and making the listing a "Featured" one.
Hopefully it should all be fairly self explanatory.
Please note Note you cannot add pictures at the initial creation of the listing, you must return to amend the listing to do so. see below.
You will have noticed that while creating the advert, there is no faciity provided for adding pictures. This is deliberate, as uploading picture data generates the majority of
user errors, which cannot be detected at PC level. (1)
and we didn't want users having unknown errors whilest creating their property to let listing.
There are a number of limitations to uploading pictures :- The image must not be greater than 125Kbytes in size, and must
be in either .jpg, .jif or .png format.
Unfortunately, for security reasons, browsers cannot check the PC file system to ensure the pictures are the correct format
before they are uploaded. Therefore error messages can only be generated at the server end. This means uploading a picture
first and recieving error messages later.
Depending on your connection speed, uploading pictures can take several seconds.
For this reason, whilst you may upload up to 9 pictures, you may only do so one at a time, once the main ad has been created.
By clicking on the create or amend a property again, and selecting the listing to edit, you will now see that the original form has a new section at the bottom for adding pictures, which hopefully should also be self explanitory.
Sorry for this perhaps, long winded section, but I thought it would be usefull to explain why it was done this way.
I am currently working on a much better way to deal with this. so this awkwardness will be resolved very soon.
