Number of Problems with Membership and Classified Plugin

I'm working with the 3 plugins together- membership, classifieds and buddypress and have a number of problems since installing them.

1. the menu has dissapeared since adding membership- if i disable it, it works again, but i need it to work with the membership plugin.

2. My sidebar widget keeps jumping at the bottom of my membership and classified pages- not all the time, i mainly see it on my register page.

3. How do i change the login from wp-login- i have installed BuddyPress login redirect but it doesn't seem to fix this.

4. On the members page their is some writing with the members name and status e.g. active 32 seconds ago.. this is white with off while shading box around it that is hard to see how do i remove this.

5. Classifieds- my classified page doesn't work http://testwebpage.info/classifieds-2/ it comes up Error 404 | how can webpage visitors and members view and contact ad listings.

6. When a member is adding a classified it wont let them click on any of the categories i have created. Also any idea how i can change the word excerpts on the classified form.

7. When i log out- it just keeps saying webpage fail notice.

8. Besides on the sidebar for members to view and search other members can this be added to their member page?

9. Is there anyway of charging a membership fee for one year with free ads or allow people just to purchase a classified ad without paying to become a member?

10. How to i edit the automatic emails to have from..... business name, phone etc at the bottom?

11. New classified Ads appear on the classifieds dashboard page and need approving, but nothing happens when i click the confirm button and admin doesn't get any emails to say there are new ads.

12. Forum- i have added topics as an admin, but when a member is logged in you can't see the forum categories?

Sorry about so many questions i have been searching for hours to fix these without success.

Thank you.

    hi @webdesig

    thanks for posting on the forum. yes lot's of questions. I'll try to answer them all if i can.

    1. the menu has dissapeared since adding membership- if i disable it, it works again, but i need it to work with the membership plugin.

    I'm not sure why the menu would disappear when activating the membership plugin, did you do any configuring of it?

    2. My sidebar widget keeps jumping at the bottom of my membership and classified pages- not all the time, i mainly see it on my register page.

    Not sure about this, could you post a url to the pages where this is happening so we can investigate? Also try using the default Buddypress Theme. You'll need a BP compatible theme for most Buddypress features to work.

    3. How do i change the login from wp-login- i have installed BuddyPress login redirect but it doesn't seem to fix this.

    Buddypress & membership have their own registration systems, could you try in the default theme again.

    4. On the members page their is some writing with the members name and status e.g. active 32 seconds ago.. this is white with off while shading box around it that is hard to see how do i remove this.

    you should be able to change this using CSS, if you use firefox with the firebug add-on, it will allow you to see the CSS values applied to each element. you then simply find that in the themes style.css & change them. Some themes have options that allow you to change colours etc for certain tags. there is also a Custom CSS plugin which allows you to do this without editing files.

    5. Classifieds- my classified page doesn't work http://testwebpage.info/classifieds-2/ it comes up Error 404 | how can webpage visitors and members view and contact ad listings.

    This looks like you have a different slug for the page which doesn't exist. i can see the classifieds when i visit http://testwebpage.info/classifieds/

    try resaving your permalinks. Dashboard > settings > permalinks. just hit save to recreate them.

    6. When a member is adding a classified it wont let them click on any of the categories i have created. Also any idea how i can change the word excerpts on the classified form.

    I'm not sure on this, I'll have to get back to you. But again, can you try using the default theme.

    7. When i log out- it just keeps saying webpage fail notice.

    Not sure on this either, could you possibly provide us with access details so we can login & test. use https://premium.wpmudev.org/contact/ and mark for attention of me, please provide access to dashboard, if using multisite, make sure we have network admin access. also please put a reference to this thread too. thanks.

    8. Besides on the sidebar for members to view and search other members can this be added to their member page?

    you would have to edit the members template & add the sidebar code to that template. just open one of the page.php or similar templates in your theme & find the part that deals with sidebar. then add that code to the members template file.

    9. Is there anyway of charging a membership fee for one year with free ads or allow people just to purchase a classified ad without paying to become a member?

    In dashboard > classified > settings > payment options

    you could set price for one time ad to 9.99 so it would cost 9.99 for each ad. then set recurring subscription price to 1 year.

    10. How to i edit the automatic emails to have from..... business name, phone etc at the bottom?

    not sure here, do you mean on the contact customer form? http://testwebpage.info/classified/holden-car/

    11. New classified Ads appear on the classifieds dashboard page and need approving, but nothing happens when i click the confirm button and admin doesn't get any emails to say there are new ads.

    Hmmm, I can also replicate that issue. I will ping @Arnold about that for his feedback

    12. Forum- i have added topics as an admin, but when a member is logged in you can't see the forum categories?

    have you setup the membership roles correctly for registered users, we may need access to check this further.

    hope this helps, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

    On 11. Be kind of silly to allow the user to publish his own post if the admin has set things for Pending Review. If you want them to be able to publish by themselves then give them a Publish status in the Classifieds setings.

    Pending review means that the listing has to be reviewed by an Admin or Editor and published by them.

    Also posts are not comments. You don't get emailed on ever new post. Just when someone comments on a post. You don't get emailed on new posts because WP assumes the admin is entering the new posts.

    You can use something like

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/draft-notifier/

    http://www.dagondesign.com/articles/draft-notification-plugin-for-wordpress/

    to add that capability
