Assignment Desk
[resolved] Pitch not showing up (10 posts)

    Matt/Erik:

    I've installed Assignment Desk plus the 3 recommended plugins and all appears to be working.

    Pitch form:
    http://locallygrownnorthfield.org/assignment-desk/pitch-form/

    Pitches:
    http://locallygrownnorthfield.org/assignment-desk/pitches/

    I've submitted a pitch, assigned myself the various tasks, approved everything and published it. But it's not showing up on the pitches page.

    Here's a screenshot of the edit of the post/pitch:

    Any ideas on why it's not showing up?

    Hey Griff,

    The Assignment Desk public pitch listing only shows unpublished posts. It was meant as a way to encourage participation in posts that are still in progress.

    Try unpublishing the post ans see if it shows up.

    ps - Thanks for using the Assignment Desk!

    Hey Griff,
    Thanks for using Assignment Desk! One of the cool approaches we've taken is to make it work natively within the core concepts of WordPress. Normally, with an editorial workflow, if a piece has been 'published' it's no longer a pitch. Assignment Desk adopts that opinion and pieces no longer show up on the pitches view if they're published. Can you try unpublishing the pitch, possibly by moving it to 'pitch' status, and seeing whether it shows up on the all pitches view?

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    Daniel/Erik,

    Thanks for your quick responses.

    I tried unpublishing it with both draft and pitch status. No luck.

    So I deleted it and submitted a new test pitch, saving it as both 'pitch' and then 'pending review' but alas, no luck with either.

    Here's the screenshot of the 'draft' setting:

    Hey Griff,
    One more thing to check out. On the "Public-facing" settings view, which assignment statuses do you have enabled to display publicly? By default, all new pitches are given an assignment status of 'new' and need to be changed to 'approved' to display publicly. From your screenshot, it looks like the pitch has an assignment status of 'new'

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Daniel,

    We're getting closer.

    I've now ticked the checkboxes for the first 4 assignment statuses options on the "Public-facing" settings page: approved; new; on hold; pitch a story. Here's the screenshot:

    But I still can't get anything to display at:
    http://locallygrownnorthfield.org/assignment-desk/pitches/

    Here's the screenshot of the post:

    FYI, I've got WP-Cache installed and clear the cache each time I make a change.

    Hey Griff,
    That's quite odd. Can you start fresh with a brand new pitch and see if that shows up? If it doesn't, we'll open a ticket and see if we can duplicate it on our end.

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    New pitch, changed status to approved, saved it.

    No luck, Daniel.

    Would it help for me to issue you an username and password?

    Hey Griff,
    My apologies for the late reply. If you're still having trouble with getting pitches to display, feel free to shoot me an email and I'll help narrow down the issue.

    Cheers,
