@ilja I am sorry to tell you this, but I still have the problem for updating from menu bar… it says I am running the most recent version (7.0.1 (722)) and I cannot see the new release…

Just a second. Webserver hasn’t been updated yet. Please try again in 10 minutes.

Of course I will do! Thank you for super fast reply

@ilja it works :smiley: !

Thanks for fixing these two issues so quickly! Going to upgrade the licenses now and try Garage Sale 7.0.2 full time. Will update with any other issues I encounter. Thanks so much iwascoding, looking forward to trying what appears to be a much more stable program

I upgraded from version b44 but now says I’m past due 30 days and I will not accept the code in my possession

One little bug I’m aware of now - all my listings say “Enter text in properties inspector” underneath the final photo. I can manually delete this in ebay after the item is listed but it would be nice if it wasn’t there…

Please check the “Properties” Inspector. It seems you you need to disable or clear one of the custom text fields there.
If you send me link to one of your listings or post a screenshot I can give you the name of the custom text field.

I have just purchased Garage Sale 7.0.2 (the latest version) and I have to say Ive never come across a programme so difficult to use… perhaps I’m being a dumbass but I just can’t work some things out. I have listed something and I like the templates how it works is good, but what I just cannot work out is on the ProTheme Sidebar I want to assign some ‘default values’ to the properties section EG the link to my logo and About Us etc. I don’t want to have to type that in every time… I can see on previous versions they’re was a template editor but I can’t seem to find that for 7.0.2

Please help!


I just sent you a new license via e-mail. Please let me know if the new license works for you.

ok, it works

thank you
