Craiglist Text Sizing Issue

Hi All,

Not sure if anyone has had any experience with making HTML listings inside of Craigslist. I’m experience an issue with Craigslist not accepting my text sizes, it does on the other had accept strong and em tags. I read a post that Craigslist doesn’t accept some tags. One article said that to size text it requires tag.

Has anyone had any experience with this sizing issue?

Hi Christian,
It appears that Craigslist supports a subset of the code you’d expect to find in your Freeway page although, much like creating HTML emails, it is possible to create good looking layouts with some consideration on how the page is constructed.
Here’s a list of supported HTML tags for Craigslist: http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/html_in_craigslist_postings/details

The first thing to do is to set your page HTML level to 3.2 in the inspector palette. Design your page, upload it to your server, and add the Remote Resources Action (FreewayActions.com | Remote Resources). Add the path to the Resources folder in the Action and publish and upload again. All of the links to the images and other resources should now point to the Resources folder on your server.

Copy this HTML from your browser and paste it into the Craigslist listing editor and you should be set. Pay attention of what the system will allow you to include, or more importantly, what it will filter out. I suspect, just like eBay, that it will automatically remove any video, Flash or other embedded content as well as CSS styles and scripts. This can make your listing less ‘dynamic’ but should allow you to create something that looks great none the less.
Regards,
Tim.
