    This is for a classified ad that I started, item is sold and so I should close it, right?

    Did you put a Classified ad in a regular forum instead of the Classified forum? That could explain why you can't close it.

    Okay, figured it out. I tried the "thread tools" in the right upper corner on my computer and the options were there to close the thread however they are not available in the iPhone or iPad app.
    Thanks for the help anyway,
    Bart

    I have a thread in WTB that I want to close, and there is no option in sight to 'close thread' ... not in thread tools or on the bottom of the page when I go advanced (where I usually close them) ... ??

    .. I am on a computer FWIW

    If the thread has been up for a while, it may be too late to edit the thread. You can always send a pm to a moderator and request a thread to be closed. In fact, feel free to pm me and I'll do it.

    Good to know so I don't waste anyone's time looking at an item already sold...
