    Awesome Plugin! I'm offering listings for free on my site, so I would really like to remove the listing information
    "Total Listing Cost
    $0
    Payment Status
    NOT-PAID
    Featured (Sticky) Status
    Normal Upgrade
    etc"
    side widget on add listing so my users don't get confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi TheFreeWorld,

    The information you describe above is something usually only visible on the WP Dashboard to the admin (for all listings) or to the poster (for their listings only).

    Are you seeing something else? Can you post a screenshot of what you see and where? Or show a link?

    http://the-free-world.org/the-free-world/post here's a picture of what I want to remove. I just want to remove the whole widget since i'm offering it as a free service. I don't know if it's my permissions but all members can see it.

    That widget is visible on the admin side only but if it's visible to regular users AND (even worse) usable, that's a problem. We'll look into fixing that.

    OK, so I spoke with my developer, here's what he said:

    I'm not sure what the user means by "regular users". Our rules are the following (in order of permissions):

    The Directory dashboard menu doesn't appear to users without a role (they can't even login) nor it appears to subscribers (the default role).
    Contributors can only see their own listings but can't edit them through he dashboard. When they click "Edit" they are taken to the edit page on the frontend.
    Authors can only see their own listings but they can edit them through the dashboard (and as such have access to the payment info).
    Editors and Administrators can see all of the listings and edit them through the dashboard.

    This means that the users he's talking about have, at least, the role of Authors or Editors. If you think we should limit this further to only Administrators, please tell me, but Authors & Editors are allowed to modify pages or posts in standard WP installations.

    So can you clarify WHO sees this widget? Is it a user with the Subscriber, Contributor, Editor or Administrator role?

    I just checked.
    All my users see it, my users roles are elevated though for other reasons.
    I actually like being able to add/edit it from the back end better, it looks more professional for the end user.
    I don't think it should be disabled when your charging for listings, but the listing information sidebar is useless when your offering listings for free, and is confusing to those adding the listings.

    So, even "Subscribers" see this? What are the specific roles of your users? Knowing that is crucial here.

    I'm using the user role editor plug in
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/user-role-editor/
    I put a picture of my settings below

    I also added the customs field widget to the page because it's something else I don't want end users to see.

    I actually like how the users can use it from the back end but, not those widgets.

    I was thinking I could just remove the strings that add the custom fields, and listing information widgets to the add directory page, but I've been having problems finding them in the plug in editor.

    I'm not clear on what User Role Editor does...is it adding capabilities to Subscriber that shouldn't normally be there?

    And the picture above is visible from what kind of user?

    Yes it allows me to change basic functions of the subscriber.

    We'll look into it.
