ADDING PHOTOS and VIDEOS

A. Each photo uploaded must be smaller than 5MB. Files larger than 5MB will not upload, and you will have to shrink the file size. Photos must be in JPG, GIF or TIF format.
Q. I cannot upload my photos and/or there is no button to upload my photos?
A. Make sure your photos are less than 5MB and you are using an updated web browser with Flash. If you are still unable to upload your photos, please email them to us, and we will upload them for you.
Q. How do I get my video link up?
A. Create an account with YouTube or another video service and upload your video there. Go to the YouTube page with your video on it, and find where it says, "Embed." In the text box next to this, copy all the coding.
Sign in to your Bigeq.com account and go to "My Ads." Select "edit ad" for the horse you are adding the video to. Paste the coding into the box below the words "Video Embed Code" and save your ad.
If you are not using YouTube, you can copy and paste a link to where your video is located in the "Video Embed Code" box. It will create a link to your video. The link needs to be a complete URL, with the 'http://" before the "www.etc."
MY ADS (PRICE, MARK AS SOLD/LEASED)
Q. Every time I try to save my ad, I get an error saying I need to enter a price. I already did. Why is it not working?
A. You may have selected "Inquire" or a price range from the price display dropbox, but you also have to enter an actual price in the text box to the left in order for your ad to save (and our search engines to function properly!). Every horse MUST have a numerical price written in the "Price (USD)" field, higher than $1000. Do not leave it blank.
Q. What should I select for "Price Display Method"?
A. You have the following options in the Price Display Method box:
Q. How do I remove my ad?
A. To delete the ad, sign in to your account and click 'delete ad' for the ad(s) you would like removed.
Q. My horse was sold or leased. How can I mark it as sold or leased?
A. You may delete the ad (see above for directions) or mark it as sold/leased. To mark the ad as sold/leased, sign in to your user account and click on "My Ads." Find the ad you would like to mark as sold, and click "Mark Sold" or "Mark Leased." Your user information will be removed from the ad and you will not be contacted any longer, but the ad will still be visible under the "Sold" page.
Q. I am a broker and I run a sale barn, can I list my farm or business as an ad?
