Basic how-to for free postings   
More guidelines

The best way to post a free posting is to visit our home page select a city and click on"post to classifieds". It's located on the left-hand side of the page in the shaded area. Fill out our online form and proceed from there.

All free postings are now in self-service mode, which works like this:

  1. fill out the posting form and submit your posting.
  2. you'll receive an email containing a link to an online form.
  3. this form will allow you make last-minute changes and then self-publish your posting.
  4. once self-published, your posting will appear on the site within 15 minutes.
  5. keep your email, because you can use the link later to edit or delete the posting at any time.
  6. if you lose or delete this email, and need it later, you can have it resent.

Posting from a BizCaf account will allow you to post, edit, delete, and repost without requiring the self-publishing email.

PLEASE NOTE: any posting that offers employment is considered to be a job posting, and should therefore be submitted by selecting"jobs"during the posting process.

General posting guidelines

Edits for postings are now self-service .

If you posted while logged in to your account, you can edit your posting from your account homepage.

Otherwise, use the link provided in the same self-posting email you used originally to self-post. If you can't find this, try having it re-sent.

Note:Editing your post will not bring it to the top of the list. You'll need to post a new listing for that (please, no more often than every 48 hours).

Posting Type   Days
Classifieds   45 days
Resumes   45 days
Jobs   45 days
Gigs   45 days
Events Until posted event date range expires



If you posted while logged in to your account, you can delete your posting from your account homepage.

Otherwise, use the same link provided in the self-posting email that you used to post the ad originally. If you can't find this, try having it re-sent.

Please note, all postings are automatically deleted upon expiration.

You'll need to submit a new posting. We CAN NOT repost a free listing for you.

You may post to one category and in one city, no more often than about every 48 hours.

If you are submitting a post that is similar to another currently active post of yours on the site, you will get a blocked message. Removing the active post will allow you to post the new ad, unless the active post is less than 48 hours old.

If you've lost the email that allows you to manage/remove your post, you can have it resent here:

When submitting a posting, you are asked to provide your email address.

No email address is shown at all - you'll need to provide contact information in the"Other ways people should contact you"box.

If you have successfully submitted your posting, but have not received the email to self-publish your post:

  • If you are using an online email account, please check your bulk mail folder.
  • You may have entered your email address incorrectly on the posting form -- it only takes one typo!
  • Your email provider may be experiencing delays, or be having trouble connecting to BizCaf for mail. This is especially prevalent these days for some of the free email providers.

Don't despair, you can alway shave your self-posting email re-sent.

Posting from a BizCaf account will allow you to post without requiring the self-publishing email.

Forfreepostings it takes approximately 15 minutes from the time you self-publish the posting until it appears on the site.

If your posting does not appear in the category where you posted it, try to REFRESH or RELOAD your browser. The refresh/reload option is usually located along the top of your browser. If you do not see it there, try clicking the right button on your mouse. If you do not refresh/reload, you might not be seeing the most current version of the page and you will not see your posting.

In some categories, you will be offered the option to Add Images to your posting during the posting process.

Additionally, you can do that using the HTML<img> tag, but the picture must already be on a site someplace. There are many free web hosting sites on the internet where you can upload your picture, just type in"free web hosting"into your search engine. Make sure that the site allows you to link to their site from another. If it's on a site, say on, in a directory called /javascript/images/logonavioo.gif", and named /logonavioo.gif, you'd code:

Logo <img src="">
Check Html examples

It'd look like an actual logo of you see on the right. (The align and alt attributes are useful, but not necessary.)

If you do this, you're using HTML, so see the next question.

Traditional processing, no HTML:

If you include a URL in the text, make sure you also include the http:// in front of the URL or our system will not recognize it, and will not make it an active link.

You can use HTML in the posting body

If you want, you can use HTML sparingly. We don't try to wrap HTML around your URLs if we see HTML tags including ,

  • ,

    . We just pass through your HTML unchanged.

    Please use only the HTML you'd use in the <body> of a document, no or anything like that. We can't support JavaScript, applets, Flash, or other embedded non-HTML content. </p> <p><strong>* Note:</strong> Some categories limit the types of allowed HTML entities, for more information see our <a href="" target="_blank">HTML Guidelines</a>.</p> <p><strong>* Note:</strong> If you use HTML in any part of your posting you must use it throughout the entire body of your posting.</p> <div class="lineGris"><a name="prohibited">What kind of postings are prohibited?</a></div> <p>Please consult the <a href="">"Conduct" section of our Terms of Use</a>.</p> <p>Category-specific guidelines posted in specific sections of the site must also be observed</p> <p>Soliciting illegal activity either implicitly or explicitly on BizCaf is prohibited.</p> <p>We also provide a partial list of <a href="html/prohibited_items.php">items prohibited for sale or trade</a> on BizCaf.</p> <div class="lineGris"><a name="prank">What should I do if someone harasses me by posting a prank posting?</a></div> <p>If you suspect that you are the target of a posting prank/harrassment, please contact <a href=""></a> immediately, and ask to have the posting removed.
