Problems with editing copied listings

Hi Folks,

I am having some problems.

When I copy a listing and want to edit it I am having extreme difficulty.

-replacing photos is a nightmare.
-changing descriptions and prices are a nightmare.

I am at my wits end with this issue. I have work on other sites and don’t have these issues! Does anyone have the same problem?

Does anyone know how to sort this issue?

Help would be appreciared

Issues with uploading photos is normally to do with the photo server being overloaded and so waiting a few hours and then trying again often solves the problem. I’ve never had (nor heard of anyone else having) any issues changing the contents of any of the text boxes - you are probably best off emailing with the details as you may have discovered that a different server needs rebooting.
(I’ve just tried editing a draft listing I’m working on and uploaded photos and changed the description text without issue so it might be worth trying again)

I haven’t had any problems with copying and editing listings…I did a few this week as I’m adding some Christmas decorations similar to last years so was doing this exact thing with some previously expired listings.

I’ve listed a lot of stuff in the past week and had no issues. Occasionally there will be problems with listing on here, but it’s very rare. I just try again a few hours later if things aren’t working well :slight_smile:

When I first joined Folksy, about 2012, I think, the photos would take about 20 minutes to upload for each listing - now that was frustrating!

I tend not to copy listings as I read that you can’t get favourites on copied items and it can affect views on search engines.
I tend to list an item then open a separate tab to list a new item and copy and paste over the information changing words and phrases to suit the next item.


That sounds like a really good idea. I will try it out.

Thanks for your help.


Thanks for replying. I don’t know why I have problems with listing on Folksy yet no issues at all with other sites.

Not to worry
