    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)

    Slash "/" isn't searchable

    Thanks for thumbs up DD!

    The one caveat is that adding the "/" to the title makes it unsearchable - the character must throw off the search engine.

    A search for EUUK without the "/" brings up all posts or threads. ;)

    thanks guys. i have tried to do search with "UK", but the search need to have at least 3 characters.

    EUUK will solve that problem. thanks.

    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...
