More options for Classifieds listings

The flexible nature of Classifieds has allowed orgs to not only rename it (via Admin Settings > Platform > Enabled/Disabled Features) but to repurpose it from a buy-and-sell listings page to everything from a shift swap board to a collectibles trading center. The one thing that couldn’t be tweaked though were the default ad types, “For Sale” and “Wanted”.

That’s all changed as News Editors can now add custom-made categories in Classifieds. This allows for a more appropriate categorization of listings (like adding “Free Item” and “For Trade” options alongside “For Sale" and “Wanted”) and also makes it simple to turn Classifieds into a multiple-use listings board.

Did you know that the use of "lemon" as a negative connotation dates back hundreds of years? Lemons were used to describe things that were unwanted or had a disappointing result because, while useful in cooking, people found lemons on their own to be just sour lumps wrapped in a tough skin. Eventually this shorthand for something that looks nice but is fairly useless found the perfect fit in the used-car game, to the point where today if anything is referred to as a “lemon”, it's almost always vehicular in nature.

And how does this tie into the other famous lemon-negative, "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade"? It doesn't. That's just another way of saying "when life gives you something sour, make it into something sweet" not "when life gives you a junky car, melt it down and sell it for scrap".
