My wife now has an inoperable hip joint and we are trying to sell our motorhome on the website.  Once sold we'll buy via CC an appropriate caravan.  More - Medication list and medical history here

The website system is a nightmare.  I seem to have three adverts.  I have paid for the special advert but can't see it at top place for seven days.

The caravans for sale people have not answered my email of two weeks ago nor can I get through on the phone.

This is the advert, or one of them:

Used Lunar FB = French or fixed bed for Sale in Herefordshire | CS889149
£ 22,995

Update 24 7 2015   
The url for this ad is as follows:
        I have updated the text and it is satisfactory for now.

another ad - no pic

yet another ad - no pic

How do I cancel the ones with no pic?

I am spending hour after hour trying to edit. Most of the time, I can't find where to edit.   Tonight 22 July and again on 24th  I managed to put one pic in but then the system goes cold.  It is the wrong pic but can't correct it.

I have put a link in the ad with the pic but can't see how to get rid of the other two adverts.

It's not as if I am useless with IT.  I put a link in the pictured advert from one of my piping websites here .  SInce then, I don't need it as this link is neutral:

The main CC website doesn't help.  There's no link to    caravans for sale  on the Home page.  More than  one drop-down list  should have said numerous links but no link to caravans for sale.  It is ridiculous that there is no link to classified ads in the Quick Links dropdown at the top right of the Home page 

Can't find     manage ads    in top RH corner of any advert page (FAQs here)  only Post Ad free

SOS    So much for SOS -  I paid for the special advert to no advantage apart from here.  (It is the first ad.)  The link facility is the main reason and it hasn't worked.

Other ridiculous aspects of provision is the size of the advert text and the lack of white space and provision for headings.  Add the fact that the balance of membership is probably swayed to the elderly with eyesight problems and lack of expertise in making the text larger.
