Classified troubleshooting

Our classified section is currently under maintenance.

On Tuesday, we had intermittent trouble with our iPhone, Android and iPad app. We also noticed at times our website wasn’t as responsive and reliable as usual.

We've isolated the problem to our classifieds section, and we’ve been working to get our website and app back to 100 per cent.

Our apologies and thanks for your patience as we work to correct it.

In the meantime, we’ve made improvements to the website that we hope you’ll find enhance your Castanet experience.

We’ve introduced new editions and tweaked our menu buttons, giving you fast access to the features you use the most. 


Changes at Castanet

We've made some changes to make your Castanet experience even better.

Readers will notice we’ve added two new buttons to our menu bar: Opinion and Our Town.

All of our opinion-related pieces are now grouped under the opinion menu, including columnists, forums, op-eds, polls and letters.

Under the Our Town heading, you’ll find items amalgamated from the previous community and city menus, including events, obituaries, Adopt-a-Pet and a list of links to city websites across our region. With an enhanced menu, we’ve made it even easier to find helpful resources.

And we keep on growing.

We've added new editions in Penticton and Kamloops. 

When you switch between city editions, you’ll see content tailored to each community.

A new city selector button up in the masthead allows readers to easily click between editions to see what’s going on in other regions.

And, we’re only weeks away from opening a new office in downtown Penticton to serve the South Okanagan even better.

We’ve doubled our reporting staff in the city with the addition of Dustin Godfrey to the Castanet team.

Last, but by no means least, we’ll soon be breaking ground on a brand-new, three-storey head office and studio in Kelowna.

Headed to see Billy Idol

Shawn C. is the lucky winner of Billy Idol tickets.

Castanet recently gave away two tickets to the rock icon's upcoming show at Prospera Place in Kelowna on July 14.

Billy Idol was an early architect of the sound, style, and fury of punk rock. His lip­ curling sneer and fist­ pumping persona vaulted him into the mainstream as one of MTV’s first megastars, making him one of the most recognizable faces in pop music, while selling out arenas everywhere he played.
