Heads-up fellow hosts. After some delays, we were finally verified and listed on wegolightly. Their search engine and site are still very immature.
A major issue is they do not support map search at all. Every other site supports “search as I move map around”. So, unless there is a listing in the exact town of your search, it may not show up at all. If one does a “search by state” that works - but people are not going to do that and will have no idea of this limitation.
They are currently still under 700 members and very few hosts.
Also, when you create a listing, you need to add your photos one at a time in the exact order you want them displayed. There is no way to reorder them afterwards. Unless, you delete photos and then re-add manually one at a time.
Photos do not support descriptions.
It may be successful over time, but they did not plan site functionality correctly, and need to fix a number of things for this to really work.
Please don’t shoot the messenger - just letting you folks know about the current limitations.
Right now, this will probably only work for hosts who have a listing in a major city (new york, etc). If you have a place just outside the city, it probably won’t show up at all.
