If you cannot locate your posting, please note:

  • Posts made without logging in to an account must be completed using a link sent to you by email.
  • Index pages and search results are updated every 15 minutes. You may need to refresh/reload the index page.
  • Make sure to look in the correct category (e.g. skilled trade services vs. skilled trade jobs, general for sale vs. general community).
  • Postings are ordered chronologically. Make sure to look under the correct date and appropriate time. 
  • If unable to locate a post using search, make sure the keyword used actually appears in the post.
  • Posts may be removed or omitted from index pages and search results by automated systems, CL staff, or community moderation—for non-compliance with terms of use, site guidelines, and/or community norms.
