Default Moderators please close this thread...

I've seen several people ask how to close a classifieds thread or post up, "Sold...moderators please close". I thought I'd post a tutorial on this mystery process while I have an hour to kill.

So I have either sold an item or no longer want to buy an item and I need to close to thread (per the admin's request):


Name:  closethread1.JPG
Views: 3797
Size:  17.8 KB



Name:  close2.jpg
Views: 3812
Size:  38.3 KB


Click on the "Thread Tools" drop down menu that you see here, make sure the "close thread" option is clicked (it should already be clicked) and then click the green button that says "Perform Action":


Name:  close3.jpg
Views: 3795
Size:  44.1 KB


Your thread should now say "Closed" at the bottom:


Name:  closed4.JPG
Views: 3761
Size:  13.7 KB


And it will show a lock symbol next to it in the classifieds forum list:


Name:  closed5.JPG
Views: 3743
Size:  18.4 KB


So how do you do this in Tapatalk? I'm glad you asked.


Navigate to your thread in Tapatalk by clicking on BROWSE and going to the Classifieds forum and finding your thread (or get there some other way by going to your PARTICIPATED threads or something.





Look for the little symbol in the upper right of the screen that looks like 3 dots in a vertical line (I'm assuming this is the same on iPhone...this photo is from Android:





Then click on "Web View" and your phone should open up the traditional green screen in your browser.





Then all you do is follow the steps above. If for some reason your browser doesn't open and it stays on Tapatalk when you click "Web View", you will have to click "Copy URL" and then manually open your phone's web browser and paste the URL to get the desktop green screen so you can follow the directions above.

Nice write up. This should be a sticky.

Can you also do an instructional tutorial on "how to use the back button"

Chew I hope you get more "followers" than some of the others who have posted the same directions

Instead of having 30 posts or being a supporting member there should be a skills test that has to be passed before you are able to post in classifieds.
It would only take 3 parts
1) Submit a classified ad to mod(s) that follows all rules of classifieds
2) Be able to post a picture of item
3) Upon notice of successful completion of first 2 steps, show ability to close
