Small ads: FAQs
Some people have a problem with the Small Ads page if they are using the Adblocker plugin.
If this is what's happening, it maybe because you're using Firefox or Chrome and have Adblocker installed.
In Firefox, go to the Tools dropdown menu and you will see Adblock. Click on Small Ads from HebWeb home page.
Firefox/Tools/Adblock/Disable this page.
Click reload and it should work as normal.
If you are using Safari on a laptop or desktop you go to Safari. You will see a dropdown menu top left - just along from the Apple icon - which says Safari. In this dropdown menu, you will see 'Safari Extensions". You can either turn off Adblocker or go to the blank Small Ads page, and declare it an exception. Once you have done that it will be available in the future as well.
(We have recently been told that the following instructions may work for some versions of Safari: 1. Safari drop down menu - click on 'preferences' the click on 'Adblock'. 2. Check box 'Click me to show Adblock's option.', then Adblock options page appears in a new tab on Safari. 3. Click on 'Customize' tab, then click on 'show ads on a webpage or domain' link.
4. Copy & paste http://www.hebdenbridge.co.uk/classifieds/index.html into the '@@' box & then click 'OK'.)
You have the options of paying for up to 35 words, or up to 65 words. If you go over, we will edit your ad down to the required number of words although we will try to keep the most important part of your ad in place. It is preferable, if possible, for you to keep within the required word limit.
All ads are posted manually. So there will be a small delay.
1. We try and post them straightaway but that isn't always possible. For example, if they are posted in the early hours they may not appear until later in the morning.
2. You may need to click refresh or renew. Some people's computers keep copies of previously visited poages in their cache.
Just send us an email, telling us of the title of your ad and the date it was placed. If you have been succesful using the HebWeb, we'd be pleased to hear.
We prefer payment online as it is easy and straightforward. You have the option of using Worldpay or Paypal. You are transferred to their secure sections of the Internet - only they will ever know your payment details. You don't need a Paypal account to pay by Paypal; their system accepts all major cards, as does Worldpay
However, if online payment isn't possible you can send the payment to Pennine Pens, 32-34 Windsor Road, Hebden Bridge.
Most people send photos and images as .jpgs but we accept most formats. However, do look at how photos and images are used on the Small Ads page. If the image or photo is too large will we reduce it in size and crop it to fit. Posters and flyers are often not suitable as the wording becomes unreadable when reduced in size.
