Default Craigslist question, help!

So I made a craigslist account today and tried posting to household services.
How do I make it so I can add pictures, color text, sized font....ect. I tried copying and pasting but it just resets it to default text. Also don't see any options to insert images or change things.

Help!

Thanks,
Travis

Zero response from that ad.

Nice ad.
Zero response from Craigs List for a nice ad like that doesn't suprise me.
Most people looking for professional lawn care services are not looking on Craigs List in my opinion.
But a lot of cheap folks who are only concerned about price are.

I think you're correct. I just thought I'd give it a go. No cost just a few minutes of time.

Your stripes look good. You obviously have skills to do top notch work.

Change your ad heading to hard target more upscale clientele. Something as simple as adding the word "Professional" to the beginning of your ad may give you a dramatically different result.

Have you experimented with html in the past? It seems you can use that code to get what you want to get done.

For instance, to put in an image you could add
PHP Code:
<img src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/image1.jpg"
And that should add an image. Try it out and let us know how it works.
