This is helpful for it makes every single online ad you post unique which makes them harder to flag or "ghost" by the Craigslist system.

Click on the Ads tab select an ad that you have already created and let's change it from a static posting to a dynamic posting!

We are going to show you how have your Title change randomly every time it posts.

!title{sample1 | sample2 | sample 3}

Now replace each sample# with different titles for your advertisement.

When you are finished then click on the Save button.
