I have the AWPCP plugin and the extra fields module.  I bought the company and the website so didn't have much to do with the building of the site process.  I'm saying this because what I'm asking may be simplistic and stupid to some.  I'm changing the site from me having to enter all the ads to a login in pay and use credits so those who want to run ads may do their own. I went through the set up page and checked all the boxes and got everything set up.  I made a new blank login page but I found no documentation on how to configure it or how to integrate it with AWPCP.  Is there a plugin I must install to set up the page?  Am I missing something in the directions?  Is AWPCP suppose to create the page and I did something wrong that is preventing it from loading?  See I told it it was stupid.  I just have no experience with this.

Hi 1lorre,

Thank you for your post. There are no stupid questions! 

When first installed, AWPCP does create pages for the directory.

Can you check to be sure that your site has the  [ AWPCPCLASSIFIEDSUI ] shortcode on the page where you want the ads? (You must remove the spaces to activate it). Our full documentation is located here: https://awpcp.com/documentation/ but I am happy to help answer further questions here. 

Please try that and let me know if you run into more issues.

Thanks for your help and after checking, that shortcode was in the correct place on the ads page.  It gives the choice to place an ad, browse or search.  When I follow (incognito) the place ad, it opens the login.  However, if I click to register it goes nowhere.  This is the part I am missing on how and where to set up.  I could not find a shortcode for a registration page.  Or if there is something else I should do. 

Thanks,

1lorre

Hi 1lorre,

Thanks for that information. 

AWPCP uses the general WordPress registration process for new users. Can you check to make sure that you have registration allowed on your site? That is a general setting in WordPress under Settings > General. Under Membership, check the box that says anyone can register, and make the default role "Subscriber".

Please try that and let me know if you run into more issues.

Yes, that is done already.  It was in the documentation and I turned it on as one of the first steps.

Hi 1lorre,

Thanks for letting me know. 

I'm not sure how you created the new login page, or if you are using another plugin to help with that. A login page isn't necessary with AWPCP -- once a user clicks on "Place Ad" -- if you have registration required to place an ad --they will be prompted to log into WordPress to do that. You can check that under Classifieds > Settings > Registration. 

If you do have a need for a separate login page, then WPbeginner.com, a site we recommend, has a good article on that here: https://www.wpbeginner.com/plugins/how-to-create-custom-login-page-for-wordpress/

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or issues!
