got this and doesnt compute

Hello,

Thanks for contacting us! We are currently experiencing errors when posting to Craigslist from Zillow and Postlets, using the HTML we provide. You are likely receiving an error message from Craigslist. While our engineers are currently working on this issue, we do not have an exact ETA for a resolution. In the meantime, please follow our workaround instructions below:

1. Go to the property detail page on Zillow, select the "More" option and click on "Post to Craigslist."
2. Click on the "Preview in New Window" link.
3. Copy the unique custom URL/Web address displayed in browser address bar.
4. Paste into the "Property Description" box on the Craigslist site.
5. The results are a link to the details of the property branded to you.

Sincerely,

Nicole
Postlets Customer

The reality is that postlets type ads have always been prohibited on craigslist. 

They've only recently started more firmly enforcing this. 

If you want to post an ad on craigslist, go to craigslist, and TYPE the TEXT of your ad directly into the posting form, by hand. 

Do not copy/paste code from postlets or anywhere else.

Craigslist has always been a plain text site and has instructed its users to "use HTML sparingly."

In what way is Postlets a "sparing" use of HTML? 

Violating the spirit of that website by offering users HTML templates to post their ads was never going to end well so this can't be a surprise to anyone.

Hi Ken,

While we are experiencing some errors with posting to Craigslist, we are currently working on a resolution. Users are able to post to Craigslist from Zillow directly, but we are still working on the Postlets side. Thank you for your patience while we resolve this issue.

Sincerely,

It's true.  Postlets (Zillow) and Craigslist are having some kind of feud.  Too bad.  It was an amazing tool for us real estate professionals.  I am now on the search for a different product that will accomplish the same thing. Stand by.
