THUMBNAIL PHOTO NOT APPEARING: The photos appear in both in the short description which appears when search results are displayed and in your ad’s detail page (where all your information will also appear). The thumbnail picture should appear in your ad’s short description as well as within your ad (albeit a larger version there). It’s important to upload the photos in chronological order, without skipping any open slots, especially the first one because, if you leave the first one blank, your thumbnail photo will not appear on your short description even though it will appear within your ad’s detail page. Please bear in mind that the system will automatically create a thumbnail version of your first uploaded photo.
MANAGING THE ORDER IN WHICH YOUR PHOTOS APPEAR: Whenever multiple photos are uploaded, the system will automatically create a revolving slide show. The first photo you upload will appear both as the first photo in your detailed ad listing's slide show and as a reduced, thumbnail photo which will appear in the shortened version of your ad listing (see note above). Otherwise, all of the photos will appear chronologically in the order in which you upload them (from top to bottom in the section where you upload them, etc.). If you later decide to change the order in which they appear, you’ll need to delete some and reload them in the appropriate chronological slot.
