As it works right now from a users perspective.
1. I create a new ad and upload my images and text.
2. I fill out all the questions and information.
3. I hit the submit button.
4. The ad now shows in the VB
forum we have created called sales.
5. The ad can be see in new the new post feature and in searches.
If I am a buyer and go to the classifieds (this is where we point all our users for sales) and I see a product that I want to ask the seller about I would enter text in the small quick reply area that looks just like a post in the VB
forum. When the prospective buyer enters the text and clicks the subit button you can instantly see the changes on that page in the classifieds but the original thread that is on the VB
forum is not "bumped" back to new post.
In the end there seems to be just one 'New post" push from the classifieds to VB
and this means that the users have to go to two identical areas to look for updates.
