I have Membership installed. (you can sign up Free as a PAO Community Member to get access to the BuddyPress area).
I have another plugin (Job Manager) for organisations to list jobs - and pay for them.
We tested listing jobs and it works fine for an administrator - or someone who is logged in and signed up as a PAO Community Member.
A client tried to list a job today and - even though they turn up as a new USER (under users in WP dashboard) and and new ACTIVE MEMBER (under memberships) - AND they appear in the BuddyPress list as a new user - there are NO PERMISSIONS associated with this USER role.
When they list the job information, after previewing it, they are then supposed to pay for it (and it SHOULD take them to a paypal screen to pay).
What is actually happening is that they keep getting taken to the hidden/Protected Pages - which means that they are UNABLE to list their job with us.
How is the system (my set-up) hijacking the process?
They appear as Employer (under Role) in USERS..and a new MEMBER (active) - but with NO PERMISSIONS.
I tested it by using a new identity (subscriptions) to list a new job and I end up as a new USER listed as Employer (under Role) ...and a new MEMBER (active) but with no permissions
I also end up with Protected Pages and you can't go anywhere else... just like the client did.
1. Can anyone help with what is going on?
2. Do I need to create Employer as an Access Level? (Why - they should just be able to list a Job without creating an account - as I have that in the settings.)
3. If they are appearing as a new Member, why are there no permissions set for them. There is no Employer in any other drop down list for me to provide permissions.
4. I just want them to be able to list jobs and NOT get protected pages as a result of creating an account.
Please help as the client needs to list the event at the LATEST on Monday.
I'll make sure you can access the site.
