    Is it me or is the DSMTuners home page filtering out everything but the Classifieds "For Sale" posts? Is there an easier way to get visibility to the other classifieds sub categories? Specifically the WTB's?

    I see much more on my homepage. All the new tech threads, classifieds, etc etc.

    I guess I worded my question poorly, I see the sub-sections too. I was specifically trying to see if the "Recent Classifieds" section could include the WTB's along with the for sales.

    I hate putting up WTB posts because they get zero visibility. I'd like for everything to be in one sub forum.

    I can make that happen. Maybe just one parts category and one cars category? Then people can use either the FS prefix or the WTB prefix?

    Sounds good. I also ask that my ads, exclusively, be stickied at the top for even more exposure.

    Thanks for the feedback. One thing I've noticed is the home page seems to lag or have a refresh rate cache & it takes a little bit before my posts & response to show up on the home page. I did a bump on a WTB I posted & I never saw it show up on the home page. It is visible in the "Recent Classifieds Listings" when you follow this though.

    Maybe the number of classified posts exceeds this cache refresh & why I wasn't able to see my WTB bump show on the home page in the for sale section.

    I made some changes to the Classifieds homepage widget, and set the caching to 30 seconds. Let me know if that helps.

    Even if I merge some of the classifieds categories together, this homepage widget won't be much different. The only real change is that people browsing the FS category will be exposed to WTB listings in the same category.
