Message says my image is too small.
Make sure that the size of the image is at least 600px in width and 400px in height. To adjust the size of your image, open it in an image-editing software such as Preview or Photoshop. Or try a different image. An image adds a lot to your listing. Try not to leave blank.

I cannot adjust the clock.
Click on the time block. Type in the time. Click on the hour or minutes to adjust. 

I cannot adjust the date.
Double-click the date for a calendar.

The page does not look right or is jumbled.
It could be the browser you are using, or the browser version (we are aware of an issue with Internet Explorer 8, which affects 6% of users. We aim to address this issue very soon.). Email us (info [at] journalofmusic.com) with the details of the browser (e.g. Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) you are using and the version number (e.g. 5.1.7) and we can check it out. 

Do I need to add a venue for a job opportunity?
Yes please.

There are two or more venues that have the same name but they are in different locations.
Please email us at info [at] journalofmusic.com and we will amend the venues to make it clear which is which. Alternatively, you could try one. If it is incorrect, go back and edit your listing and try the other.

The category that I need is not listed.
Please contact the editors to suggest a new category. Email info [at] journalofmusic.com

Why is my listing not appearing?
Possible reasons:
– Did you click Save? Re-input the listing and click ‘Save and Publish’ at bottom of page.
– The new content may not have registered with your browser yet. Solution: Empty cache in your brower and reload page, or, wait until the top of the hour.

Can I replicate and amend a listing for every concert date on a tour?
Yes. Once you have created your first listing, click “Clone this listing”, which creates a new listing. Make your amendments (to date and venue for example) and click Save. Repeat the same action for other tour dates.
