classifieds plugin - picture size limit, any user can end a classified

BRAND NEW WPMUDEV USER
ISSUES WITH CLASSIFIED PLUGIN

Firstly, IMAGE ISSUE
when adding a classified, large images are added and corrupt the entire page.
I do not want edit pictures manually
eg.
http://crestviewvet.co.za/wp/?classifieds=hp#

unlike this page,( how images are suppose to work"when adding images)
eg.
http://crestviewvet.co.za/wp/?page_id=2

secondly, any visitor to the classifieds can, "end ad'
i need to stop this.

thirdly, USERS login and go straight to dashboard.
I would like users to login and go straight to the website, disabling the dashboard for them and top bar.

these could be a bit out of box features, but i really do need them.
Thanks and appreciation in advance.

    Hi there @Nishal

    Welcome to the forums, glad to have you aboard!

    If you are referring to the large image at the top of the page, that is a built-in feature of the Twenty-Fourteen theme which displays features images like that. Nothing to do with the Classifieds plugin. :slight_smile:

    To prevent that from happening though, there are 3 things you can do:
    1. Try a different theme.
    2. Remove the featured image capability from Classifieds.
    3. Hide those images with CSS.

    If you are set on using that theme, disregard the first option. :slight_smile:

    To accomplish the 2nd option, go to CustomPress > Content Types in your admin, and click the "Edit" link under the "classifieds"post type. In the "Supports" section of the options, uncheck "Thumbnail" (screenshot).

    Note that this will completely remove the featured image option for classifieds, so any media items must be uploaded via the media uploader when creating/editing an ad.

    Also, before doing that, be sure to delete already added featured images from existing ads, or they will display anyway. :slight_smile:

    The 3rd option is likely the easiest. All you need to do is add the following CSS to hide those images only on classifieds pages:

    body.single-classifieds .post-thumbnail {display:none;}
    body.full-width.single-classifieds .site-content .hentry.has-post-thumbnail {margin-top:0;}

    To add custom CSS, the easiest way id to install a simple plugin like this one:

    I hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:

    Hi there @Nishal,

    Hope you're well today and sorry about the extreme delay on this.

    In classifieds > settings, you can change the capabilities for each user role, for example you can stop them from deleting ads for example :slight_smile:

    For logging in and not going to the dashboard, you could use our login redirect plugin here https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/login-redirect/

    Thanks!

    Kind Regards
    Jack.
