New Category Select UI

Today we’re releasing a snazzy new way to select a category and subcategory when you list your item!  You can just try it out or read on for more details.

You’ll notice that the form field looks slightly different.  When you click on it you should see something like this:

Once you select your main category you will be prompted to select a subcategory:

One difference is that it is now required to select a subcategory.  When your selection is incomplete you will see a “Select…” prompt in red.  If you find that a subcategory doesn’t fit for your item you can select the “Other” subcategory.  Once you’ve completed your selection it should look something like:

We’re gearing up for some category updates soon that will take full advantage of this new UI so stay tuned!  Enjoy!


  1. Do today.

  2. its already there. was hoping they would make a category for wicca stuff and recipes. don’t see that though

    they are i got an email from them tellig me they are making an email category

  4. Is there going to be a DIY and Recipes Category?
    While you’re at it, you should do a category for ridiculous/illegal auctions posted by underage users. There are so MANY of those,that they NEED their own category!

  5. I like the old way better. Thanks…God Bless…

    Merry Christmas,

    How about the listing and re-listing dates of the stuff we auction here? I’m going mad trying to keep it all together, trying to figure out when I listed and re-listed the items I sold. Guess I need to keep better track, just in case I ever need it. It would help if it was already there on the page somewhere though. Thank you Listia!!! You really have helped us!!! ❤ Elizabeth Freville ❤

  7. Yes, a recipe and diy category is needed.
    Why must we go through the ‘kitchen’ category and have to be subjected to thousands
    of recipes and diy’s?
    Please make a self category for these listings? PLEASE!

  8. 4KidsGranny says:

    How about some new categories for DIY and Recipes? I’m about sick to death of searching kitchen items and seeing nothing but recipes that I can go google and get for myself for FREE

  9. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images
    on this blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

  10. Nice post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed! Very helpful information specially the last part 🙂 I care for such information much. I was seeking this particular info for a long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  11. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the info you present here and can’t wait to take
    a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even
    using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, very good

  12. I simply hoped to just take a few moments and let you know that I enjoyed reading the write-up.
    I seriously don’t believe that generally people know what amount energy that gets put into developing a good internet site. I know this will be sort of random however it bugs me occasionally. Anyhow really good website.

    Please have yarn as a final category. I search for yarn and have to look thru hundreds of listings for flavored waters and recipes for food and finished projects. I don’t look often anymore because it just takes too long! Please make YARN a class within itself!???

    Having trouble finding the into to contact you in the proper way so I’m doing it this way. Had probes with my phone for 48 days before I finally could get back on. In that time had a winner say they didn’t get item. Post office tracked it and said they received it on sat. 7th in the morning. So they get the product and got their credits back too and I get bad review.can’t find URL so nothing I can do?
