Does the site no longer have a classifieds page for equipment, etc?
No and Yes.
With the move to the new software platform there is no longer going to be an active Classifieds Group. That is because neither the old software or the new software supported classified-style postings. It was just a hack. It might have worked for members, but as the site admin, it was not at all fun.
SO - I am moving the classifieds to a new site - TheChocolateLife.info - on a software platform that supports classifieds as well as a full-blown directory to companies that provide products and services in cocoa and chocolate. That site is not quite ready. I had hoped to get it up and running by yesterday, but fixing UI/UX issues here on TheChocolatelife.com got in the way of testing to make sure everything works. There is a note here on the home page that says that you will see an ad in the Member Marketplace section when the new classifieds site will be ready to go.
