What you said about the RESERVE fields and RESLIMIT fields is SIMPLY NOT TRUE! I listed these ADS MYSELF. I know EXACTLY what I put into the Buy it Now price (RESERVE FIELD) and the Reserve price (RESLIMIT FIELD) when I listed the ads. Something in the classified code is wiping those fields out after it "thinks" an auction has been successful.
The simple question is this Chuck, If I put in a RESERVE when I list the ad, and say that's $250 would you AGREE with me that the item SHOULD NOT SELL for less than $250? If you can't agree with that statement then I'm going to have to quit using this classifieds software.
Right now the photopost classifieds software does NOT enforce reserve prices, but will allow items to sell for less than the reserve.
Chuck this should be simple for you to troubleshoot. Make your own auction, set a reserve at $250. Create 2 dummy accounts. Start the auction at $1. Have person 1 bid $100, have person #2 bid $250. Make it a 1 day auction. Watch what happens after the 24 hours are up. Person 2 will "win" the auction for $110. Far below the Reserve price of $250. Then check your database and look at your RESERVE fields and RESLIMIT fields. They will be wiped out to 0!
Don't take my word and extensive testing for it, please try this yourself and watch what happens. In fact I'd like to ask other owners of the classifieds software to please run the same test themselves and document what happens.
