    Hi again

    Thanks for that information I had another question I was wondering about,
    when you launched your site did how did you start, did you add any dummy ads or did you leave it empty how did you get members using it i know mos site if they are empty people tend to avoid them, how did you get past this issues ?

    I only had 1 add in there when I launched and that was a 'test / example ad'.

    I launched through the support of a Facebook group (where I was talking with users about what they would want in a trading platform).

    So I had members of the group support me by adding their ads to the site, within a couple of days I had my first 30 ads. From that it grew.
    If my post was helpful in anyway, please give it a like or a thank you.

    Thanks, I was wondering if it would be possible to add bbp-messages to the side bar instead of frontend pm ??

    I asked the dev of frontend pm for bbpress support, he's replied once and nothing since.

    I saved your URL from another post about Social Pug. I am having the problem that my logo is being shared instead of the item image, on Facebook. I did turn off meta tags in the plugin. Why is this happening? my site is www.farmoverstock.com. Your entire site is fabulous. I am studying everyones Q&As. Thanks for the help! Linda

    Also how did you add a chat room? That sounds like it could really be a good thing for my type of site! Again, awesome site!- L

    Hey Linda,

    The logo being shared was actually due to a setting in the dlvr.it service I was using which automatically pulls the posts from my RSS feed. I switched a few settings in there and I've not had any problems since.
    I can't really help with the social pug plugin, probably best to speak to them.

    With regards to the chatroom I used https://iflychat.com/ but stopped using it because there was mobile compatibility issues.
