Installing and configuring the classified ads plugin was no problem; alle general functionality works. But I cannot figure out why some issues keep coming up.

The most important problem is that ALL registered users can edit ALL ads from all registered users. The Edit Ad (Wijzig advertentie in my language on the site) makes it possible for a user to edit an specific ad, but there are no restrictions for anyone.

I am also using Ultimate Member to add flexibility in managing users and to be able to create a member site. I also have an admin role and a member role. How do I combine the AWPCP rights/roles with the rights of Ultimate Member? Is the provided AWPCP-role: ‘classifieds moderator’ a role I have to add to the Ultimate Member role: Member? Or is this role only for administrators?

Ads can be placed right away; without verification or a administrator check. This because all ads are only visible to registered users and all the provided user info is already check at registration. I want to make sure that the user information cannot be changed when a registered user is placing an ad (username, name, e-mail address), to be sure we can see what registered user is placing the ad. I am not sure what I did but I cannot get it right again. I had it set that this information could not be changed, but now suddenly a new registered user can change this information.

I hope you can help.

Hi Dennis,

Which version of WP and AWPCP are you using?

Could you check for any conflict that might be causing this? You could follow the instructions here https://awpcp.com/forum/faq/how-to-test-for-plugintheme-conflicts/

Thank you for the reply. I followed the steps in the article you mentioned and i found the problem in Ultimate Member, so I am already a lot further, thank you. I still keep running into some differences i cannot get clear.

My goal is to let users be able to edit their own ads only, within the page itself (so without the black admin bar on the left). I had that part working when all plugins are activated, including UM, but then, when a (test) user wants to edit an ad he placed, the edit scren does not appear and jumps to the homepage. When I disable UM then the test user is seeing the black adminbar on the left AND is als able to edit ALL ADS in the system.

What the test user also is able to see is all the menu items an AWPCP-admin or moderator (?) sees; like all ads of all users which are waiting for an admin action etc. (the top menu in the admin screen of AWPCP).

It must have something to do with setting rights and/or roles, but i cannot figure it out. UM is using very basic settings like ‘admin login or not’ and so on. I am using the standaard ‘Admin’ and ‘Member’- roles from UM to set right for the two different type of users (admin (beheerder) and member (verenigingslid)). The AWCP-Moderator’-right was confusing for me; is that a right for users (members) to edit their own ads or is it the admin moderator right? I also figured out that ‘read’-rights are enough for members to edit their own ads, but I am still a bit confused.

I hope you, or someone on this forum, can help me setting the proper rights. Thanks in advance.

Hi Dennis,

I would need to check with our programmer regarding this. I’d get back to you as soon as I can.

Hi Dennis,

Apologies for not coming to you sooner.

To clarify, AWPCP has 3 distinct ways of managing listings.

1. First, we support anonymous listings where the user does not have to register to place the classified ad. They do have to use an email address that is valid, though, and we send that email address an access key. They need to use the access key AND the email to edit/manage the ad. Users can’t manage a group of ads this way. You can turn this on by setting Registration to OFF (Classifieds > Settings > Registration tab) and the Ad Management Panel to OFF (Classifieds > Settings > General tab)

2. Second, users can manage their listings on the back end using our Ad Management panel. This requires that registered users place the ads (so we can associate them to a profile). You can turn this on by setting Registration to ON (Classifieds > Settings > Registration tab) and the Ad Management Panel to ON (Classifieds > Settings > General tab)

3. Lastly, users can manage their ads via the front end in TWO ways:

* Without BuddyPress, they can do it using a shortcode from our shortcode list here (AWPCPUSERLISTINGS): http://awpcp.com/forum/faq/val…..codes-3-x/ That gives users a page to access when they are logged in to see their ads. After creating the page, to get this management mode, you can turn this on by setting Registration to ON (Classifieds > Settings > Registration tab) and the Ad Management Panel to OFF (Classifieds > Settings > General tab)

* With BuddyPress, you can do it without creating the page in the first item above, but installing the AWPCP BuddyPress module along with WP BuddyPress. You’ll want the same settings for the item above, but you’ll using the “Listings” tab under the BP profile. You can purchase the BP module here: http://awpcp.com/premium-modules

Hi,

This explaination works great and helps me understand the different possibilities and settings; thank you! I now have a nice screen for each user including their own ads and the option to edit them within the frontend of the website.

Only one thing is not working: registered users can edit their contact information when they place a new ad as well as when the edit one of their own ads. In the menu under Classifieds –> Settings –> Form tab, under ‘Contact fields’ I didn’t check the option: ‘‘. ‘

For safety reasons we need this option to be accurate and be sure that avery registered user cannot change there contact information themselves. Is it possible that there is a conflicting setting somewhere? if not, is it possible to edit a file or files to restore this?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Dennis,

This might be a plugin conflict. Try disabling other plugins and see if this function would work correctly. You could follow the instructions here https://awpcp.com/forum/faq/how-to-test-for-plugintheme-conflicts/
