Hey...does this work with Headway Themes

Hi I bought your service understanding it was compatible with headway themes, I have installed the classifieds pluging, I have used the created page and cloned it in headway but all I get on this address is a blank screen:

http://www.safeseamalta.com/classifieds/

I guess I am missing something somewhere, could you help?

    Hi Andy,

    Welcome to the WPMU Dev community and thank you for your question.

    I have tested it on my test site and found it's working fine.

    Make sure you have created at least one Classified and published it.

    Try resaving permalink settings and Classifieds settings.

    Can you please try enabling WP_DEBUG mode? To do this, just go to wp-config.php include this:

    define('WP_DEBUG',true);

    You might already have a line for WP_DEBUG, so just make sure it's set to true.

    For information on this, checkout this wpmu.org article.

    Let me know what errors if any you are getting on the classifieds page so that i can troubleshoot the issue.

    Is it working fine for you using default WordPress theme like Twenty Thirteen and only having problem with headway themes?

    Would you mind if I logged in to your site and did some testing? This might help get to the bottom of this faster. If this is ok, just grant me temporary admin access to your site by clicking "Grant Access" button in the WPMU DEV Dashboard Settings as described on the following page and reply on this thread after granting it?

    Hi I have tried on 2014 and the page does display, I have also tried refreshing permalinks and nothing, If I create a new page and add the shortcode to show say classified categories that does show but it pushed the theme out... as you can see here

    As before the actual classifieds page just shows white.

    I have enabled access for you.

    Thanks

    Hi there @Andy,

    Hope you're well today and thanks for your question! :slight_smile:

    I've just been checking this and headway gets the data directly from the database for output, rather than using the_content filter, so any plugin using the_content filter won't output data correctly.

    I've flagged the lead developer of classifieds for his valuable opinion on this.

    Thank you for your patience!

    Kind Regards
    Jack.

    Hi @Andy,

    I hope you are well today.

    The HeadWay theme is a little bit different than traditional WordPress themes, so in making the Classifieds plugin properly work with it, we need some small tweaks.

    But, you only need to replace the file classifieds/core/core.php with the attachment.

    If you have any issues please don't hesitate to let us know so we can assist

    Best regards,

    Hi Hoang...

    Thanks for your response!!

    Ok so I have uploaded that file, hmmm not sure what it has changed. So I have loaded up a post and that is visible

    However I believe there should be pages to show all classifieds and how to add a classified which I can't find. I think the classifieds has a "home page" which is http://www.safeseamalta.com/classifieds but this page is very weird as it just shows an old version of the site and when i change it from my theme it refuses to change.

    Maybe I am setting something up wrong but I am totally confused?

    Thankks
    Andy

    @Andy,

    Hmm, I will need more information, Can you please send in:

    - Mark to my attention - ATTN: Hoang Ngo
    - Link back to this thread
    - Include admin/network access
    - Include cPanel (I will need to look at the DB so need PHPMyAdmin or similar)
    - Include FTP
    - Include any relevant URLS for your site

    On the contact form, select "I have a different question", this ensures it comes through and gets assigned to me.

    Thanks!!.

    I do apologize for this :slight_frown:, I has found your email. Many thanks for that.

    I'm sorry for this inconvenience, but I don't see the WordPress admin/network information, can you please send it too?

    Thanks a ton for your patience.

    Hi @Andy,

    Thanks for your information.

    The page classifieds doesn't have any template apply on, so I just use the same template for single classified. Now it look better

    http://www.safeseamalta.com/classifieds/

    For make the image look better, please add this css
    .cf-image{width:140px} to your theme css, or you can use this plugin
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/

    Thanks again for your patience.

    Hi....

    Well it doesn't look the best does it? Wth the two images showing, sure I can hide the featured image but then then the other one isn't clickable.

    Also how are people supposed to add their classified advert, where are the pages for this? Unless I have missed something it isn't in the instructions.

    I know you aren't the owner of WPMU Hoang but I gotta say I tried the service having previously been put off by the price. I thought hey if the plugins are great and easy to implement etc then it may be worth $600 a year. So far it isn't!

    Thanks
    Andy

    Hi @Andy,

    I do apologize for the delay and confusion, usually, when the plugin activated, it will create some necessary pages, so you can always add those pages to your current menu by visit the admin> appearance > menus, which will display the navigation to classifieds.

    And here are the urls of those pages:
    http://www.safeseamalta.com/classifieds/my-classifieds/
    http://www.safeseamalta.com/classifieds/add-classified/

    I'm sorry for this inconvenience and many thanks for your patience.

    Ok so we are getting there, it is hard work though. I think a better guide would save you some work.So I still have some questions....

    1, How can tidy up the classified page. The text needs to be next to the image and the table borders aren't consistent?

    2, How do people create an account to add a classified advert, isn't there a page for that?

    3, Is there a way to take out some of the fields on the page where people add a classified.

    I am sorry to keep bothering you Hoang and I do thank you for your help but what can I do when there isn't a comprehensive guide?

    Hi @Andy,

    I hope you are well today and merry Christmas :slight_smile:

    1, How can tidy up the classified page. The text needs to be next to the image and the table borders aren't consistent?

    Please use this css
    .cf-image{width:140px}
    This will make the image and table look better, please check my screenshot
    How to add that css to your page, please follow here
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/heydoes-this-work-with-headway-themes#post-795673

    2, How do people create an account to add a classified advert, isn't there a page for that?

    Actually, if people visit those pages
    http://www.safeseamalta.com/classifieds/my-classifieds/
    http://www.safeseamalta.com/classifieds/add-classified/
    Without login, it will display a form, so user can login or register new account.

    3, Is there a way to take out some of the fields on the page where people add a classified.

    This will require some custom coding, can you please tell me which fields you want to remove?

    I am sorry to keep bothering you Hoang and I do thank you for your help but what can I do when there isn't a comprehensive guide?

    I think you already check the document here https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/classifieds/#usage

    Hey again Hoang...

    Happy christmas to you too!!

    I am working through some things so will come back to you with more questions but when you say in reference to question 2..

    "Actually, if people visit those pages
    http://www.safeseamalta.com/classifieds/my-classifieds/
    http://www.safeseamalta.com/classifieds/add-classified/
    Without login, it will display a form, so user can login or register new account."

    I have visited these pages and get a login page, not a create account page. So if you test it you can't login cause you don't have an account without having first created an account?

    So I ask again, how does someone create an account to add an advert

    Thanks
    Andy

    Hi Andy,

    I can see on your site http://www.safeseamalta.com/wp-login.php the user registration is disabled therefore the registration form is not displayed on your site that allows users to create user account on your site so please enable user registration on your site as described on the following page.

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/the-buddypress-manual-2/letting-people-register-on-your-buddypress-wordpress-install/

    After allowing user registration the non logged in users will get "New Account" tab along with "Login" and "Forgot?" tabs as shown in the attached screenshot.

    Regards,
    Vinod Dalvi

    Ok thanks for that. The problems go on though. SO when I try to add content to the main classifieds page in my theme it won't show. I don't mean in the page I meean within the theme which allows me to create a text box, or custom code box above the content box which pulls from the page. When I set up either a custom code box or text box the content of them doesn't show?

    Actually guys lets just forget this. Some feedback for you...

    I have just downloaded a free classifieds plugin and within an hour have it up and running. No theme issues, no page issues, great instructions, and looks ok.

    I will try a couple of your other plugins but I must be honest I am not impressed with the products so far, and from what I have seen so far the service wouldn't be worth $600 a year. It isn't you support guys, you are great. The problem is the plugin isn't well developed and instructions are poor.

    Thanks for trying

    Andy

    Hey Andy,

    Thanks for the honest feedback, appreciate it :slight_smile:

    Unfortunately, like with any plugin, there will sometimes be theme conflicts :slight_frown: we always do our best to provide a custom fix for these situations and we wouldn't of stopped assisting until it was fixed. Apologies that it didn't work out with this one!

    I am glad you did happen to find a solution though!

    We know that Classifieds is due for an update, we have a few other major updates in the works right now and also a brand new theme framework release soon - in-fact, you can tryout the beta now if you haven't already :slight_smile:

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/upfront-theme-platform-new-beta-the-ultimate-wordpress-theme-part-two-1

    Not to take a shot at our current themes, but it blows them out of the water!

    We're more than happy to help you choose another of our plugins that may fit one of your needs - appreciate you giving us another chance here.

    Let us know if any further questions come up Andy!

    Hope you had a great New Year.

    All the best for 2015!

    Thanks again for the feedback.

    Hey Andy, thought I would add some plugin suggestions here too if you don't mind :slight_smile:

    If you want to protect any content on your site and/or setup dripped/multi-tier/simple memberships then try out Protected Content.

    A few other ones you may like:

    Popup Pro: Create your own custom popups and use a bunch of conditionals to place them anywhere on your site.

    Pro Sites: Create your own pay to blog network :slight_smile:

    CoursePress Pro: Learning Management System. Create and sell courses.

    Ultimate Branding(one of our most popular!): Completely re-brand your dashboard - comes with lots of cool modules like network wide text change.

    MarketPress: Create your own eCommerce store. Full Multisite support with global cart.

    Anyways, those are just some of the plugins that I would recommend trying out next if the purposes suit your needs :slight_smile:

    Have a great rest of your day Andy.

    Cheers,
    Tyler

    Hey Tyler....

    Well thanks for the response. I do understand that your guys wouldn't have stopped until it worked, I had that got that impression from their efforts. Good also that you actually read feedback and not just let it pass you by.

    The interesting thing with your product is that it isn't cheap. $600 a year isn't a small amount of money and in the past I haven't committed because I wasn't sure if it would be worth it.

    That said I have a lot of sites so your product could be perfectly viable and so your offer gave me a chance to try. But now I am aware that there is no point in me using many of your products if I don't trust that I will be using them next year because if I am not I am just making work for myself.

    So I hope that my next try will work and be a little less problematic than the last!

    Thanks
    Andy
