I'm using wordpress 3.2.1, BuddyPress 1.2.9, Classifieds 2.0.5 - a single install on http://www.idahofallsnow.com
Users can publish ads without ever paying, though the Credits Enabled box is checked. In the Admin panel, I have access to Credits, where I can purchase credits and complete the checkout process. However, as the Admin, I would never charge myself to run an ad - this option is there, as I imagine it should be for the Users. As the admin, I would just use the Post New Ad option which looks more like a regular blog post than the Plugin template.
1. How does the user get directed to the Credits and payment pages BEFORE being allowed to post their classified ad?
2. At what point does their user level change from the default to Classified Member? And what should their capabilities be as Classified Members? On my site, it is possible that some users would just remain default users and never attempt to buy credits for the classified ads. For those who do want to post an ad, at what point do their roles and capabilities change?
