I installed the plugin and it is not working. this

Hi,
I installed the plugin and it is not working.
this is the only plugin installed on my site http://www.ilovewordpress.co.il/
1. when I activate the permalink on my site the Classifieds and My Classifieds becomes not found pages.
2. When I tried to Add Classified from the site it gives an error above the set featured image although I do add an image - the error is "This field is required.", so I can't create a new add at all , and it happens the same from the wp admin from classifieds-> add new. Even when I did not let the user the authority to upload images, still it is possible to for him to upload and will not let the new add to publish because it does not recognize that an image was indeed uploaded.
3. in the documentation u mention there is classifieds demo site - but I don't see a link to the demo site.
4. I declared tags but in the add new classifieds I see only the categories I defined, and not the tags I defined to choose from .
5. what is the use of the custom Press menu?
6. Where do I add or change the form fields in the classified form http://www.ilovewordpress.co.il/?page_id=7

Waiting for your quick answers
thanks
Hagit

    The two links work fine for me, however I am not logged in on your site.
    What are your Blog's Permalink settings? Try setting them to 'Post Name' structure.
    Also, double check all the Classifieds User Capabilities are configured correctly so users have the correct permissions to list Classified ads.

    Custompress is what is used to set your own custom post types, taxonomies, categories, etc. You should be able to make changes to the form fields through this but it will require some custom work.

    Hi @chagitchen

    Thanks for posting, and welcome to WPMU DEV.

    @hpidriver made some valid points, the first things to check are permalinks and user capabilities.

    Set permalinks to "Post Name" as suggested then save. And then click save again to be sure :slight_smile:

    Once you have done the above then we can start troubleshooting.

    What version of Classifieds are you using? And what version of Wordpress?
    Is it a multisite or single install?

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Hi @chagitchen

    Have you created any classified listings? If you haven't then none will show, they are just a custom post type so when you view the classifieds page if there are none you see the not found page. But since the My Classifieds page works, that suggests it's working now so if you list something then it should show. If not we can troubleshoot from there.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Hi @chagitchen

    Right I see, in that case can you please send me some admin login details so I can investigate further?

    To send the login details you can send them through our contact form
    - In the subject field add "Attn: Mike"
    - Link back to this thread
    - Include admin/network access
    - Include FTP & cPanel
    - 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.

    If you are having problems with the contact form you can send them to contact(at)wpmudev.org please make sure the subject line is Attn: Mike and all details are included :slight_smile:

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Hi @chagitchen

    I didn't see an email come in, I've looked in the inbox and can't see it, did you use the contact form and fill it in as I said? Specifically you need to put "Attn: Mike" in the subject.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Hi @chagitchen,

    I have just seen that you sent the details in a post to the forum which means you chose the wrong category on the form.

    I have removed the details from the post but it was live for about 30 minutes on there.

    I'm going to have a look now, and I'll update you shortly.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Hi @chagitchen

    I've had a thorough look through all of your settings and I can't see anything wrong.

    You do have an old version though, could you update to the latest?

    You were logged in to WPMU DEV Dashboard using a free account, so I have signed you out, you now need to login to wp-admin and go to WPMU DEV > Dashboard. Under the form where it asks if you are already a member click "click here" then enter your username and password.

    Once done, update the plugin to the latest version, see if anything is different and let me know if not.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Hi @susan_pomerantz,

    Alex replied to your post yesterday, please see his reply on your thread here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/susansusanpomerantzcom. Replying to other peoples threads just causes problems and confuses things for the original poster.

    Hi @chagitchen

    I have tried again and I'm still getting the same error as you(as seen in screenshot)

    I've flagged the developer for this plugin to see if he has any ideas here.

    Cheers,

    Looks like the Image Field checkbox in Settings is working backwards. Uncheck it seems to do what you want. I'll have to look at that.

    The rest of it seems to be working. I was able to enter and publish a listing.

    Tags do not display like Categories. Tags will accept input of any string, just like Wordpress tags. Just click where it say "Add a Tag" and add a tag. It's not a restricted list like Categories.

    Demo site is here. http://classifieds.custompress.co/

    Custom fields are in the CustomPress Custom Fields.

    Hi @chagitchen

    It looks like you posted your reply less than a minute after the developer Arnold did.

    Please read his reply above and comment based on that.

    I have just tried again myself and successfully listed another classified advert so can confirm and second Arnold's comments.

    Cheers,

    Hi Mike and Arnold

    1. I don't understand what u mean by "Looks like the Image Field checkbox in Settings is working backward" - it means that if I want to enable an image I need to uncheck the possibility of an image?

    2. what is the use of the custom Press menu?

    3. Where do I add or change the form fields in the classified form http://www.ilovewordpress.co.il/?page_id=7

    4. I see that user that registers to the add system needs to register to the wordpress site, gets a password and when he login he receives a link to the home page of the site. How do change the link back after login to the add new Add page?

    thanks

    Hi @chagitchen

    1. I don't understand what u mean by "Looks like the Image Field checkbox in Settings is working backward" - it means that if I want to enable an image I need to uncheck the possibility of an image?

    He means that it's reversed, and he's going to fix it for the next release. So basically, for now if you want an image to be allowed, then yes, uncheck the box.

    2. what is the use of the custom Press menu?

    CustomPress is a plugin that is used to create and manage the Classifieds custom posts. You need to keep it there, but it won't be possible to disable it from the plugins menu anyway as it is bundled with the plugin.

    3. Where do I add or change the form fields in the classified form http://www.ilovewordpress.co.il/?page_id=7

    You can do this from CustomPress > Content Types > Custom Fields..

    4. I see that user that registers to the add system needs to register to the wordpress site, gets a password and when he login he receives a link to the home page of the site. How do change the link back after login to the add new Add page?

    I'm afraid that's default Wordpress behaviour and would require a plugin like this: http://wordpress.org/plugins/peters-login-redirect/

    Hi again,
    I installed this plugin on another site of mine.
    1. How do I change the main page name for the classifieds
    currently it is http://carinfo.co.za/classifieds/
    2. I have recent articles widget on the sidebar, and when I activated your classifieds plugin it added the text
    "ClassifiedsClassifiedsClassifiedsClassifiedsClassifiedsClassifiedsClassifiedsClassifieds" on the sidebar
    this text should not be there and I don't know how to remove it
    3.the add is not fully shown and the right side of the add is cut, u can't see the whole price on the right.
    4. I added a field "car year" to the add but I can see it only in the add itself http://carinfo.co.za/classified/this-is-a-text/ . how do I add a field to the add shown on http://carinfo.co.za/classifieds/ ?

    thanks

    1. are you changing the title or are you wanting to change the url?

    2. Is this the standard Wordpress Recent Posts widget? It should only display Posts unless you setit to combine the two in CustomPress settings. Not a good idea. The Recent Custom Post type plugin would be better controlled.

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/recent-custom-posts-type-widget/

    3 and 4. I tried to register so I could see them but no email ever came with the password. In general though oyu will probablty need to adjust the CSS to get it to look the way you want.

    Hi A,

    1.I want to change the utl and the title
    2. I use the free plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-23-related-posts-plugin/ and see no reason to buy another plugin from this company just for popular posts. I want to understand why it adds only on this page this extra text because it looks really bad.
    3. I think there is a delay with the email , because now I did get your registration.
    also I registered with a different mail and got an email with password
    4. when a user define a new add - he can't choose category, I defined 2 categories - buy and sell and he can't choose any of them

    thanks

    1. In Pages find the Classified page and change the title and the slug to what you like. Whatever you change the "classifieds" slug to you also have to change in CustomPress > Content Types > Post Types > Classifieds > Has Archive > custom slug. They mmust match to work properly.

    2. It looks like the widget is spitting out the page title repeatedly. I have no idea why as I don't have access to the Theme and couldn't support a third party theme anyway.

    I finally got the email about a half hour later.

    4. Try going to CustomPress > Content Types > Taxonomies > and go in and re-save each of the taxonomies to give it a chance to update the permissions.

    Make sure you've set the capabilities for the role you assign to Classifieds members.

  • Arnold
    • El Macho WP

    Just noticed something. You'v apparently added standard categories to the Classifieds categories. I not two boxes for categories. This will not work for Classifieds. The reason is built in to Wordpress. Yu can only set the "assign_terms" capabilitiy to one post type. In this case you would need it for both Categories which are for Posts and for classifieds_category which is post type classifieds. Only one will work the other will fail. This is inherent in the Wordpress core code.

    Hi Arnold,
    1. What I enter with a user that is not admin I can't select a category.
    I did Try going to CustomPress > Content Types > Taxonomies > and go in and re-save each of the taxonomies
    why I can mark the category for admin and not for a subscriber? maybe it is a matter of capabilities that I don't choose correctly in the settings for the subscriber?
    2. I already asked but did not get an answer: how do I add to the add fields on http://carinfo.co.za/classifieds/ one of the new classifieds?
    3. When adding a new add I am forced to choose a featured image,
    is there way not to force it? please remember there is a bug with this option.
    4. Adds that are published and I see in http://carinfo.co.za/classifieds , after a while they are changed status to draft by themselves and even when I republish them they still change back to draft and disappears -why is that???
    5. Is there a way to publish the classifieds without forcing a registration to the wordpress?
    6. there are so many bugs in this plugin , that I cannot use it, I bought only this plugin and I consider to ask for money back.

    thanks

    1. Did you remove the standard categories from classifieds as I indicated above? CustomPress > Content Type> Post Types > classifieds > Support Regular Taxonomies should be unchecked. The reason is the capability type for classifieds is "classified" and the capability type for Regular taxonomies is "posts" Wordpress forbids the capability to use mixed capability types this way. You could make another taxonomy assigned only to classifieds if you need a second category list.

    2. As I previously indicated you add custom fields in CustomPress > Content Types > Custom fields. Assign them to classifieds.

    Or are you asking how to display them on that page? If that's the question you would need to add the embed code (in custom fields) to the template for the archive page. Edit the classifieds/ui-front > general > loop-taxonomy.php

  • Arnold
    • El Macho WP

    3. As I said above the checkbox seems to be working backwards. Uncheck Classifieds > Settings > General > Image file

    4.All Classifieds expire and get changed to a non published status. Users can buy more time by purchasing more on their expired classifieds so they aren't erased.

    5. No. You must have a user account to attach them to if for no other reason than to know whether they can edit the ad.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
