Your not using the latest software are you?
1. Reason I ask is there is no manage ads link in the profile.
2. Have you setup your cron task to expire ads?
3. Are you sending email in html or regular? I dont see where we actually send html in an email normally anyway
4. No you should not unless your getting notification as admin of new ads if you elect to do that
5. You have an example as the cron only expires ads which are expired
6. what integration etc? url?
7. again a url?
