No, it was something radically different. However after much head smashing into the wall and cursing I did figure it out.
In fact, I got so much of it figured out that I only have one last question before I can have this running 100% like I want to. On some forums that I am on for adding pictures to the advertisement, there is a button to press for Add Pictures or Add Attachments, which opens up the upload control panel in a separate pop-up window rather than as one of the table options on the create an advertising page.
I assume that is a hack, but don't know where to find it.
