Edit Ad button sends to Wordpress backend

I have installed AWPCP on my Wordpress website and everything works well except for one thing: 

If I, logged as owner of the Ad, access one Ad and then try to edit it by clicking on the "Edit Ad" button, the link sends me to the backend of WordPress (https://mywebsite.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=awpcp-panel&action=edit&id=94) instead of sending me to the dedicated Edit ad page (https://mywebsite.com/edit-ad/).

I could not find any solution to this specific problem. The users can still edit the Ads, but it would be better if they did not have to go to the backend to do it.

– I am using WP 4.9.8.
– I am using AWPCP 3.8.5.

I've also checked for themes and plugins conflicts as described here http://awpcp.com/forum/faq/how…..conflicts/, but did not notice any issue.

Thank you,

Hi Antonio Cosseddu,

Thank you for your post. Sorry for any confusion here.

It sounds like you may have the User Ad Management Panel enabled here. Can you please check that? You will find it as the first setting under Classifieds > Settings. Uncheck that box, save your changes, clear your cache, and let me know if you continue to have issues here.

Thank you very much.

It was a lot easier to solve than i thought!

Best regards,
