Welcome to the new JCNA Classifieds. You will notice changes in the way our Classifieds look as they have been completly redesigned however all of the posts made to the old Classifieds have been imported into the new system.

Note that original post times could not be imported from the old system, only dates were imported.

One of the first things you will notice is the need to register in order to post classifieds. Visitors can read classifieds but cannot post until they register. It is a very simple process which ensures that email addresses are correct.

Browser compatibility : like all pages on our site, we've tested the Classifieds under the most popular browsers and OS. Older versions of Netscape, version 4.x, do cause some pages not to display properly. Although usable, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to the newer version. There are no issues that we are aware of when using Netscape 5, 6 or 7 or Explorer 5, 5.5 or 6.

A few basic rules...

1. Only PRIVATE classifieds are free. See below for commercial posts or classifieds posted using auto related email addresses.
2. Classifieds are not removed unless you do so. Just click on the Delete link next to your classified, note that you must be logged in to see the delete link!
3. Keep the classified related to the section topic
4. We reserve the right to remove ANY classified we deem inappropriate without notification.

Commercial Posts

Commercial classifieds are $10 each and active for 90 days. JCNA reserves the right to delete any classified believed to be commercial which would have been submitted as a private free classified. Only classifieds for Jaguars or parts and services directly related to Jaguars are allowed. Commercial posters who post ads claiming they are private sellers maybe banned from JCNA on line services. See confirmation page for paypal payment instructions.

Optional link URL / Title

When posting a classified, you can enter a link and a tile to a web site or web page that may include additional information and pictures.

Please type in the http:// portion of the link !

Optional Image URL

Enter the address to picture of the car on your server or a web page. Do not enter the page address on which the image appears but the image address itself. If you are not sure, go to that page, right click on the picture and choose properties. You can then copy the URL and paste it back in the post message form.

If the image you want to use is not already on the web but is only on your computer, see next section.

Upload an image to the JCNA Server

You can upload your image from your computer to the JCNA server by clicking on the Upload Image button. This will open a new window where you can select the image, preview it, add a description and upload it. When done, you will be returned to the forum to finish you message, the image URL will have been added.

Image must be less than 200k, check the size before you try to upload. File must be a JPG or GIF, any other format will be rejected.

When you select a file, a preview of that image will be displayed (reduced size). If you selected the wrong file, just click on Browse again and select another one.

POSTING Tips / Help

Try to use Descriptive Subjects in your classifieds... just don't say "Jaguar for salel", make the subject reflect why you are posting... such as "1967 E-Type Roadster"

Never use ALL CAPS TO TYPE A MESSAGE. IT IS THE ELECTRONIC EQUIVALENT TO YELLING AND IT MAKES IT HARD TO READ TOO!
