SOURCE: How do you post a tip?

Hi Jon,

The categories should appear in a dropdown as you begin typing. There are many categories, which is why they are not all listed at once. Start typing and you should see a dropdown appear.

Also note that when posting a tip it may be a short time before the tip will show since tips must be reviewed.

If you continue to have problems, please leave me a comment or feel free to contact the Fixya Support Team for more help with troubleshooting.

I tried to write a tip. No luck b/c you kept asking me to choose a product or category from your drop down list. I could not pull up that list. YUCK! Wasted 30 minutes.


Hi Gramps Johnson,
I'm sorry that you were not able to post your tip.
I understand that the products drop down list did not open and that you could not choose your product.
Can you please try again, this time start typing the product name or the model. the drop down should then open and show you a list of products. If you can't find the specific product you were looking for, try a more general category. For example, if you couldn't find 123xyz Samsung Washing Machine, try looking for Samsung washing machines.
Your tip will still be available under all Samsung washing Machine types.
I hope I was able to help. If you need further assistance, you can always contact us at: http://www.fixya.com/contact
