General

Can I advertise my car for sale?

Once you're a paid-up member of the CCCUK, you can advertise your car for sale on this website and in the magazine for free. Anyone with Internet access can browse the Marketplace forums, so your audience includes many more than just club members.

If you're a member of the club but still can't add your advert, you need to request membership of the 'Club Members' group in the website. Send an email to the CCCUK Membership Secretary at membership (at) corvetteclub. org. uk and provide your real name, your username and your CCCUK membership number and the Memb.Sec. will sort out your status on the site.

Using this website

How do I advertise my car in the Marketplace?

Free advertising on the CCCUK website is available to CCCUK members only. On the website, CCCUK members belong to a User Group entitled 'Club Members' and this title is shown below their name in the forums. To unlock the Marketplace so you can add or edit adverts you need to join this Club Members group. You can apply for this by sending the Membership Secretary an email with the following details:
- Username on the website
- Your real name
- Your CCCUK membership number
As soon as the Memb.Sec. gets this information he'll add you to the group. From then on, you'll have the words 'Club Member' below your name in the forums and you'll be able to add your adverts to the Marketplace.

Email the Membership Secretary on membership (at) corvetteclub. org. uk

To add an advert to the website:
Navigate to the Marketplace in which you'd like to place your advert, and click the 'New Topic' icon. In the 'Subject' box, enter the title of your advert, including 'For sale' or 'Wanted', the item you're advertising, and the price. In the main body of the advert, include as much information as possible, and especially your contact details.

To include photos in your adverts, first upload your photos to your Personal Photo Gallery by clicking the 'Photo Album' link in the Main Menu. Once you've done this, view the photo in the Gallery. Below the photo is information about the image, including title, description and finally the 'Code to show image in topics'. That's the bit you need! Copy the whole line (something like [img]http://www.corvetteclub.org.uk/album_pic.php?pic_id=131[/img] ) and go to your advert. Paste that line into the text of your advert and the image will be displayed when you submit the changes.

Note that adverts may be moved, removed or edited if they're inappropriate for the Marketplace in which they appear.

How do I add photos to the Photo Album?

You can upload photos from your computer to the photo album by going to the Photo Album and clicking on the category to which you want to add the image. While viewing the category, click the 'Upload Pic' icon to go to the upload form. From there it ought to be self-explanatory.

Only CCCUK Members can upload photos to the categories. Non-member users can only upload photos to their Personal Gallery.

If you're a CCCUK Member, you've registered on this website, but are unable to add your photos to the Album, you need to join the Club Members group. You can request membership by clicking the 'User Groups' link in the Main Menu (left). The Administrators will approve your membership if we're satisfied that you're a bone fide Club Member. (We may need to contact you to verify this.)

How can I advertise my company on the website?

The maintenance of this site is handled by volunteers, and the hosting is paid for with CCCUK members' subscriptions. The site doesn't exist to make a profit, although we are prepared to accept non-intrusive adverts from companies wishing to reach the CCCUK membership (and indeed any Corvette enthusiast who may be browsing the site). The principle is similar to the advertising arrangements for the club magazine. Advert revenue is used to supplement the CCCUK's finances to help fund activities each year and cover some of the operating costs.

If you are interested in placing a commercial advert on this site, please contact the CCCUK's Treasurer by emailing treasurer (at) corvetteclub. org. uk
