What is Craigslist Ad Preview?

Craigslist Ad Preview is a Chrome extension that manages all of our software from a single convenient interface. You can access this interface by clicking the red and white Ghostbusters icon in the toolbar to the right of the address bar in your browser.

From the Options page App Manager you can turn features on or off and activate features that are included in your subscription. This extension automatically activates applicable Craigslist Embedded Features turning them on and off automatically as you visit different pages of Craigslist, no configuration is required to turn on CraigsFlagger, CraigsEnforcer, CraigsAccounts, or CraigsTheme as you browse Craigslist.

You access these features by visiting the applicable Craigslist page directly, and operate and configure them from within the Craigslist page itself. Check out our some of our flagger videos for a brief demonstration.

My extension will not authenticate..

You need to follow our Subscriptions like to create an account with us. Once you have done this, your password and username is the same one from our website, as for the extension.

Did you reset your password on the My Account page? If so, you need to run the Updater with your new credentials to reset them within your system, then your software will function again.

How do I use the CraigsEnforcer feature to protect my ads?

  • Select Reinforce feature on your flagger dashboard in the search page of Craigslist, the small radio button option labeled Reinforce.
  • Search Craigslist for your ads or open the section in which you placed them.
  • When they come up, click the little garbage can beside all the ads that are not yours. That will make them disappear from that page temporarily and omit them from the Reinforce cycle.
  • You can now visit just your own ads with the Reinforce feature. 
  • Click Preview all, Preview 4 X, or Preview  (Forever).

The Reinforce protection feature needs no ips. Craigslist only uses their paid ip checker api for site logins, flagging spam, posting, and communication with their support staff through their forms.

All you are doing with this tactic is visiting the pages for the ads you are protecting, CL measures the number of visits versus the number of flags with their flag:visit ratio to decide if your ad gets removed. When you visit, this ratio tilts in your favour. Each visit is added to their algorithm which decides if your ad stays or goes. It's not the only factor in their algorithm, but a very big one. You could sit there and refresh the page and do the same thing as the the Reinforce feature is doing when its flagging, it visits each page then closes it based on your timer settings in the widget for the app. Click the preview feature if you want to see it protecting your ads in action. If you have many ads, it is a very powerful feature..

How do I Flag Forever or Flag 4X?

CraigsFlagger Pro has all flagging features built in. With this version, You can identify all ads to be flagged as spam, and with one click of the Preview button, it will flag the entire page of ads, omitting the hidden ones. Preview 4X does this 4 times, while Preview   is self evident 😉

When do I use CraigsCookies to remove my cookies?

Only when you are on your accounts page before you log into Craigslist do you need to clear your cookies with that feature, unless you have CraigsAccounts installed, which does this for you automatically. CraigsAccounts is now included with any suite, including this one.

Clear your cookies if you are logging in from multiple IP's and multiple accounts. However, when you are flagging, our software takes care of all of the flagging cookies. If you interfere with it, you will not be flagging at all, it will not work, even if it seems to be. Our software knows which cookies are bad, or used and which ones are needed and when and is programmed to replace the bad ones with fresh ones automatically. I repeat, if you interfere with our automated process and keep clearing the cookies yourself while flagging, you will flag NOTHING!

If your software is constantly auto re-authenticating.. it is because you're deleting all of your browser cookies including your authentication cookies from our website, and you should not be touching those cookies, your software requires them to function. Read over the Beginners Guide for proper operation considerations and precautions please.

Do I need Proxies to Flag?

No, not necessarily. There are other methods described in our tutorials to acquire good IP's to flag from. It's always best to use a combination of methods if you can. The more IP's you can access, the more powerful you can be, to the point of clearing entire sections. You can use  a proxy manager, or HMA to rotate your proxies as your flagger is operating for better results if you choose to try to remove ads, and not just flag them.

How do I find out if my Proxy is from where they say it's from? How does Craigslist know where I'm located?

Craigslist uses state of the art geoip-location services such as Maxmind to pinpoint your IP's location. Our online IP Tools use the exact same database as Craigslist to determine where in the world your IP is from along with a great deal of other information that is provided by Maxmind. Check out our IP Tools, or visit https://www.ip-tracker.org/ to see all of the information that Craigslist can tell about you directly from your IP alone. You can also use our IP tools to check the validity and location of all of your proxies as well before you try to use them for flagging on Craigslist.

I want to put this on more than one device, how do I do that?

Open any Chromium browser, and from within the browser click this link. If you are signed in, this will sync this extension onto any other device you sign in with. As we update the Google Web Store, your updates will automatically happen.

How do I contact support, what is the best time?

You can reach us here, and you can send your mails when ever you like. Our staff does their best to serve you as fast as possible. Sometimes we are able to assist you outside of business hours, and if we are here we will. If we are unavailable, please be patient. There are very few of us dealing with very many.

It is our goal to work with everyone as partners in our effort to make Craigslist profitable for us all. We need our support staff to be dealing with technical support. The members area is for the methodology required to make the software perform optimally.

We are constantly updating the Ghostbusters Members section with new scripts cool software and more elaborate tutorials and videos.
