Can someone please show me an example?

I’m creating a directory site and have purchased the directory plugin, however when visitors sign up to my website they are given back end access and can view all of my media and such. I thought when purchasing the plugin that it would like take them to a form to fill out which would publish the listings. I DO NOT want visitors to be added as back end users to my website and have already set the permissions to the minimum standards.

I would like to see examples of other sites that use this plugin so I can observe how users are added and where they are taken.

If you do not have any examples please let me know of other websites that have more private and professional directory plugins. Because at this point I feel like I wasted money on a plugin that you can actually get for free on other websites.
