Instructions Best Of Craigslist Flagger (CLS App Manager)

CLS App Manager

puzzlesThe CLS App Manager is found under the “Tools >> Add-ons” link just under the Extensions tab in your Firefox 38 menu. (Also found under Tools >> CLS App Manager, also found by clicking the dropdown arrow beside the Ghostbusters icon in the toolbar once the CLS App Manager plugin is active.

The CLS App Manager is a platform we use to manage our suites of software applications all in one handy interface from within Firefox 38. We also use this plugin to create an interface between our apps and craigslist. It allows us to rebuild craigslist pages on the fly and add or remove certain settings and features within Craigslist. In addition, CLS App Manager creates an interface in the Firefox toolbar to allow the user to manipulate and access certain settings for each application as well.

There is a different version of CLS App Manager for each major software we sell, but they are all interchangeable. If you install one over another it will simply add the apps that came along with your new purchase.

Here you can enable or disable the different Apps as you may need them, or decide to shut them off because they are not being used at the moment. You can always reactivate the ones you have disabled from here.

Your CLS App Manager comes with some pre-installed Apps when you buy it, which ones depend upon your package. If you already have CraigsFlagger installed, you may decide to buy additional Apps as you need them in the App Store, or you can buy PostMaster Bundle, and it will install them all at once. There is a significant discount when buying the bundle, over buying the apps individually.

Install

Installing CLS App Manager

The tricky part of the installation for some it seems is simply the activation of the plugin in the Firefox extensions menu following the installation. Just follow the instructions in the activation tab to overcome this issue. To be able to install our Craigslist Software, you will be required to install Firefox 38 first and only this version, our software doesn’t work with any other version, so don’t experiment or imagine these are just out-dated instructions, this page has been updated in 2018. Simply follow all of our directions in order please to avoid confusion during the set up and maintenance of your craigslist software. If your using a Mac, you will need to access this downloads page from inside of Firefox 38 Mac, and your craigslist software plugin then installs directly from our server (there is nothing for you to download on Mac). Our Craigslist Software is all managed by a Firefox Plugin called CLS App Manager.

If you just cannot figure out the Menu Bar setting for some reason, you can alternatively download this Add-on checker program, and double click it to access the Extensions area of Firefox, where our software installs itself.

extensions menuIn the Firefox Menu Bar, navigate to the “Tools >> Add-ons” and you will see the App Manager just underneath the Extensions tab. That is where we install and manage the specific Apps. If the drop down menu on the tool bar says no apps are active, this is because you are not on the proper craigslist page, and all our apps deactivate when you are not on the applicable craigslist page they were designed for.

*Mac users do not have an update feature built in.

Our software comes with a built in update / repair feature. You can access this feature anytime during your license period, if you had a bad windows crash etc, simply running our update / repair tool will repair your software from any system issues. There is no need to ask us, or contact support to maintain your own software completely. If however, your update features don’t exist because you changed computers or operating systems, you will need to visit the store for a replacement. You get one installation on one machine once only which also embeds an unlimited update feature. After that, you always have your update / repair program in your program directory to resolve anything you might need. This feature is also how we control the license on your system. The updater verifies your license is still valid as you update or restore your software without any intervention required from our team.

You will need to enter your membership credentials, your username and password to install or update your craigslistsoftware products. If you do not remember your credentials, you were sent a welcome email when you purchased the software. This email address is your Member’s username . You chose your password. If you cannot remember your site password, please reset it here.

We will be addressing any defects in our software as fast as possible. If Craigslist changes their site for any reason, we cannot predict this and it will take just a bit of time for us to adapt to their new code. We appreciate your patience when this occurs, your welcome to drop us a quick note if your software stops functioning, we will put your report on the desk of our software crew if it is a craigslist update that caused the issue. If craigslist has not changed anything, then it is your system with the fault, and you may use the built in update feature. You will not be charged for the updates, this is free of charge for 6 months.

Windows only ~ Update link is in your program directory, just click it for the latest version of your flagger to be installed into your system. You need not contact support. Your updater will function for 180 days from date of purchase.

Support

CLS (Craigs List Software) Support

Edit Delete RepostSoftware developers and tech support personel use specific terms such as Download, Install, Activate and Authenticate by which to describe in which mode you are interacting with the software. You cannot call every function downloadin. First, you Download the software, then you Install it, then you go into Firefox and Activate it, then you turn it on in the toolbar by Authenticating it. We need to agree upon these terms to communicate with you effectively. If you have actually downloaded and installed the software but cannot find it because you didnt activate it in Firefox settings, or have activated it, but cannot use it because you didnt turn it on in the toolbar by authenticating it, then you didnt review the instructions in the preceeding tabs correctly or completely. There are only really a couple of solutions to remedy nearly everything. Reset forgotten passwords, and restore / update the software. If you managed to get past the installer, the CLS Restore / Update feature is already built into your program directory. If you suspect your software is not working, you can update it any time.

Please do not assume you can find the software unless you review the “Activate” tab and make sure it has been activated, its built right into Firefox and you will not see it unless you activate the plugin and follow all associated instructions.

For general inquiries, please fill out the contact form and we will respond shortly. Usually we can get to it right away, but due to the large volume of customers and our own varying schedules, we must ask a little of your patience.

To avoid confusion, please include your payment email, which is also your username and your order number so we can find you in our system and respond quickly. We need you to include your username, which is your PayPal email you signed up with for your security, to make sure we are dealing with the person who paid for the software.

Please Do not remove the software for any reason, if you do, we can not replace it for free. If you have any issues you cannot overcome via resetting password or using the CLS Restore / Update feature, you need to contact support. If you removed it anyway, you need to visit our store and buy a new copy. Our license is for ONE INSTALL ONLY, as all our clients agree to during the installation. We are very upfront about this and very strict about our policy. This is why it is important for you to create a System Restore Point (Right Now) the moment all of your software is installed and operational, and take care of your system.
