CLS Account Management

Welcome to our group! From your account dashboard below you can view your downloads, past orders, view instructions and change your password. We want everyone to get the most out of our software and be sure to have a trouble free experience. If you hover over the guide link above you can see each set of instructions for our software. If you choose not to follow the instructions and rely on your intuition during the installation or use of our software, you will experience problems. Our software has a unique design, and is not like other software. Everything from installation to operation works only one exact way, and there is a correct sequence to each procedure. Once you become familiar with our software, the locations & methods each app employs, it will become intuitive.

Each application has its own environment and works upon a specific aspect of your Craigslist experience. Our software manages itself once it is set up properly and activated, turning itself off and on as you move from page to page. The only thing each app has in common with the others is the CLS App Manager which is designed to keep all CLS apps in one simple place to be easily managed. You can always re-read the instructional for any particular app if you are not sure which app works upon which page, and how. Please review each tab in sequence before you try to use the software. This will help avoid any time consuming confusion.

Installing CLS App Manager

⚡ Requirements: 🦊 Firefox 42 64-bit or Firefox 42 32-bit & English Microsoft Windows 7,8 & 10.

CraigsFlagger Pro, CraigsPoster Pro, Trinity BundleThe tricky part of the installation for some clients is simply the activation of the plugin in the Firefox extensions Add-ons page following the installation. Simply follow the instructions in the activation tab to overcome this issue. To be able to use our Craigslist Software, you will be required to install 🦊 Firefox 42 64-bit or Firefox 42 32-bit and only this version, our software doesn't work with any other version. Our latest installers make every effort to auto activate the software for you, and Freeze Firefox's automatic updater.

When we install our software, we embed a configuration file into your system that prevents Firefox from updating on its own. Since Firefox makes every attempt to update itself immediately when you install it, if you install firefox after you install our software, this is the best course of action, because our configuration file prevents this update.

These are not outdated instructions because we use an older browser, this page has been updated in 2019. Simply follow all of our directions in order please to avoid confusion during the set up and maintenance of your Craigslist software. Our Craigslist Software is all managed by a Firefox Plugin called CLS App Manager.

Error messages

If you receive an error message when you are installing or updating, the issue is likely a connection issue. You need to be CraigsFlagger Pro errorsconnected to the internet to validate and download files for the installation. If you are disconnected from the internet, the installer will give you a warning, and then exit the installation. However, if Windows Firewall, or your antivirus is interfering with the applications validation process, you will receive one of two errors, advising you that the application cannot validate.

The easiest course of action is to disable both your antivirus and windows firewall, and proceed with the installation. If you choose, you can see out the specific firewall rule preventing the application from connecting, and remove that rule, or reset the Windows Firewall rules to the factory defaults, then proceed with your installation. Our tutorial to shut off Windows Firewall is here.

  • Click the Menu Bar option to activate the Firefox top Menu Bar.
  • From the Firefox Menu Bar go to Tools >> Add-ons >> Extensions: and find our CLS App Manager Add-on and activate it, as well as any of our other applicable Add-ons and restart Firefox.

Our latest software also ads a black puzzle icon to your toolbar on the left, you can click this icon to access the Add-ons configuration page.

In the Firefox Menu Bar, navigate to Tools >> Add-ons and you will see CLS App Manager tab just underneath the Extensions tab. That is where we install and manage the specific Craigslist features & apps. If the drop down menu on our Ghostbusters toolbar icon says no apps are active, this is because you are not on the correct Craigslist page for any Craigslist apps to be active. All our apps automatically deactivate when you are not on the applicable Craigslist page they were designed for.activate craigslist flagging software extensions menu

After installation of our software, it is possible that the CLS App Manager plugin is disabled by default. A Firefox Upgrade / Downgrade or reinstallation can also result in disabled plugins. Simply navigate to the Firefox Tools >> Add-ons >> Extensions area and the CLS App Manager plugin will be found there. Enable it if it is not already, and any of our other applicable Add-ons you may find there and restart Firefox.

Our software installs for all Firefox profiles and not within any specific Firefox folder. It cannot just disappear even if you remove Firefox entirely. If you remove the software, you will need to repurchase it to get a new license. If you decline to set a restore point in your own system after you install the software, you may have issues of this nature if your system fails.

When you first the red Ghostbusters icon on the left, the icon changes from translucent to red and you are ready to use your Criagslist Software as intended.

Authentication Errors

If you set your Firefox to not remember History, or set your privacy settings to not accept cookies, the application will give you a pop error because it cannot authenticate. If you change your password on the website you need to run your updater with your new credentials, or you will also get this pop up authentication error. However, if more than 180 days have elapsed since your purchase, your license has expired, this will also give the authentication error. To be clear, if you have purchased your software before Saturday the 23rd of February, 2019 it will not update or authenticate. For your convenience, your Ghostbusters Membership, installer & Updater username are all authenticated with the email / password combo you signed up with. Reset your CLS password here if you have forgotten it, but remember that you will then need to run the software updater, and use your new credentials to reset your license to your new credentials.

First Use

craigslist flagging software dropdown menuOnce you have installed and activated the software, you can turn on the individual app by simply making any Craigslist search, and CraigsFlagger will turn itself on. When you leave the applicable Craigslist page, it shuts itself back off. You can click the arrow beside the Ghostbusters logo, when you'recraigslist flagging software widget on Craigslist's website to activate or deactivate different apps included with your purchase, although this is unnecessary, unless you dislike the theme styling and don't want to set your own for instance. To activate an app, select it if it is not already active, then refresh the Craigslist page that particular app was designed for, and it will then take effect and embed those features into the Craigslist page. The same for deactivating apps is true. When you are on a page that has nothing to do with any of our apps, the apps will not be active. This is normal. Apps only activate on the specific pages where they are required to be of use. CraigsPoster Pro is an exception. Just hover over the Launch Pad link to run any stand alone Apps such as CraigsPoster Pro.


In the top left corner of the Craigslist search results page within their sidebar, you will find our small CraigsFlagger Pro settings widget. You can check the small box to preview the ads as they are being flagged, or hide them as you wish. All your settings are in memory until you reset them.

In this small widget, you will also find 2 timers. The "Interval" timer on the top controls the interval between the flags. You can adjust this for a more "human" appearance if you think it will help you disguise what you're doing. The "Timeout" timer controls how long the program will wait on an ad that is not loading for whatever reason, possibly a slow proxy or Craigslist not loading quickly due to many photos in the ad perhaps. Adjust these timers if you experience difficulty. They save their settings until you reset them, so be advised not to forget about these settings if you adjust them.

You can set your spam settings to Reinforce, and use this widget to preview every ad in the section based upon your timer. This way you don't need to click through a hundred ads to view them all, just se the top timer for 15 seconds, click preview and a slideshow of all of the ads will commence. Click the reset button at the top of the preview window to cancel out of this mode.

CraigsDashboard

craigslist flagging software dashboardYou can see in the widget image on the right there is also a button labeled CraigsDashboard. This feature is accessed from any Craigslist search page when your Craigslist flagging software or Craigslist posting software is active. Click this button to explore the rest of the apps and features that work upon the Craigslist search pages and posts. CraigsLive, CraigsNotes, CraigsTheme are all accessed from CraigsDashboard and there are links to the Quick Guide, our IP Tools and your Craigslist account page, which activates CraigsAccounts. CraigsAccounts activates regardlessly automatically when you visit their account page. This toolbar also displays your current IP address.

Configuring CLS App Manager

firefox Craigslist software addonsThe CLS App Manager is found under the "Tools >> Add-ons" link just under the Extensions tab in your 🦊 Firefox 42 64-bit or Firefox 42 32-bit menu. (Also found under Tools >> CLS App Manager, also found by clicking the dropdown arrow beside the Ghostbusters icon in the toolbar once the CLS App Manager plugin is active.

The CLS App Manager is a platform we use to manage our suites of software applications all in one handy interface from within 🦊 Firefox 42 64-bit or Firefox 42 32-bit. We also use this plugin to create an interface between our apps and Craigslist. It allows us to rebuild Craigslist pages on the fly and add or remove certain settings and features within Craigslist. In addition, CLS App Manager creates an interface in the Firefox toolbar to allow the user to manipulate and access certain settings for each application as well.

In the Add-ons configuration page under the CLS App Manager tab, you can enable or disable the different apps as you may need them, or decide to shut them off because they are not being used at the moment. You can always reactivate the ones you have disabled from this panel.

Your CLS App Manager comes with some pre-installed Apps when you buy it, which ones depend upon your package. If you already have CraigsFlagger Pro installed, you already have most of our features, except CraigsPoster Pro and FoxyRevolver. There is a significant discount when buying the Trinity Bundle (which contains all of our apps), over buying the applications individually.

Configure Firefox

Our PC software is designed to work with 🦊 Firefox 42 64-bit or Firefox 42 32-bit only.

It is required to prevent Firefox from updating from 🦊 Firefox 42 64-bit or Firefox 42 32-bit. On occasion, if Firefox is allowed to do as it pleases, it can disrupt your Craigslist Software. Our installer adds a configuration file to your default Firefox program folder to do this step for you automatically, along with about 30 other performance tweaks for Firefox. However, if you decided to delete the Firefox program folder or not install Firefox until after you install our software despite the order our instructions are listed, then you can either then run the CLS Restore / Update feature which will re-add that configuration file back into to your fresh Firefox installation, or you can freeze Firefox manually.

As you may have noticed, Firefox can sometimes interrupt different plugins with an automatic update. If you do not want any unforeseen irritation from an automatic Firefox update - do not allow it to update on it's own. If the features described below are grayed out in your configuration panels, then our configuration file is in effect, and you need not bother with any such Firefox settings.

If your browser updated on its own, just reinstall 🦊 Firefox 42 64-bit or Firefox 42 32-bit All you need to do is Freeze  🦊 Firefox 42 64-bit or Firefox 42 32-bit and everything is as it once was, and all of your favorite plugins, including ours of course, continue to work just fine. Click the image on the left to see how to Freeze your Firefox.

Troubleshooting Firefox
