any ideas?

looking at a few frames, would prefer UK/London locations, but almost all of them are US/North America based.

thanks. :)

We do not have a specific sections for different parts of the world. You might consider listing city or country in the title of your post.

Hi esm -

There are a number of EU and UK posters who batted this idea around on the boards - there's a thread about this, actually.

What seems to be a workaround is to simply place EUUK in the title to your classified posts - which can then be searched for or seen immediately by those of us in the neighborhood. ;)

Yep, definitely add the tag to your post title, it's very visible at the front of the listing, for instance

[EU/UK] FS: 3x RacquetNameHere, 4 3/8, 8/10

(It is very easy to see when scanning down the page)

Thanks for thumbs up DD!

The one caveat is that adding the "/" to the title makes it unsearchable (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/search.php?do=process) - the character must throw off the search engine.

A search for EUUK (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/search.php?searchid=6297726) without the "/" brings up all posts or threads. ;)

Hmmm, very interesting! I wasn't aware of this..

An alternative is to use google's build in search switches,

For instance:
EU/UK site:tt.tennis-warehouse.com
(You can use the sub-forum if you want instead of the entire site).

It depends on how well google indexes the site, which might not be that often...
