Classifieds Version 2.3

Don't really like the new user interface for 2.3 versions of classifieds. I will need the users to enter there own classifieds and think the editor is to confusing for them. Also there is no easy way to upload a picture for the end user. I think the old entry way was more intuitive and made more sense for this application. Curious why the interface was changed and what the advantages are to new input method?

Thanks,
Anthony
