directory – in profile all listings available to directory users

i have bypassed the payment and sign up page and redirected to registration – but now when i have a registered user at the default directory member login – when you hit submit post it goes to the right page for adding a post, however on the left side there is a dropdown for listings and if the user hits “listings” instead of staying in the “add new” they have access to edit or change any previously posted listings by other users. any way to fix this?
