    Exclamation Link to classified ad when contacting advertiser

    When i see a classified ad, and want to contact the advertiser using internal message system -> there should be a link to that related ad added automatically to my sent message. Since when I get reply the only way to refer to the original classified ad, is via that link. At present there is no such related link

    thx

    Agree with this poster- no link or button near the correspondence (in inbox/sent pm page) to easily refer to the classified being discussed. Would be useful.

    I think the new site will have will be something like this

    -- Classified Ad
    ----- Replies (only the owner can see all the replies, and if you've replied, you can only see owner replies to your reply)

    So you're not sending a private message as such, but replying to an ad.

    Not sure if this explanation makes sense - but will have a mock up in a few weeks.

    Looks good thanks

    my original suggestion was based on asiaxpat site that has a related ad feature from messages inbox

    Looking forward to a new design. If you need beta testers let me know

    thanks
