    What “role” do you give your site users when they register in your website? Do you give “Subscriber” role?

    ACADP requires “edit_acadp_listings” capability to post listings. “Subscriber” user role doesn’t not have this capability by default.


    1. Install “Members” plugin by Justin Tadlock

    2. Go to Users => Role from your WordPress admin panel

    3. Edit the “Subscriber” role

    4. Search for the capability “edit_acadp_listings” and check in the “Grant” check-box

    5. Save the changes.

    That’s it. Now, your site users can post listings.

    hi the followed your instructions but no success please help what am I doing wrong

    Note: Only the registered users can post listings.

    You can set new users default roles via WordPress admin.

    1. Login to your WordPress admin panel
    2. Go to Settings
    3. There will be option to set new user default role under “New User Default Role”.
    4. By default this will be “Subscriber”. Select whatever role you like to give your users and save.

    You are done!

    The Role you assign here must have “edit_acadp_listings” capability.

    Have you added “Listing Form” page to your site front-end?

    If not, Go to “Pages” menu from your WordPress admin panel and find the page with title “Listing Form”. This is the page where your site users can add their listings and this page was added by ACADP during the plugin installation. Kindly add this page as a site menu and visit this page from your site front-end to post your listings.

    hi have this role options under the users or just settings I can’t find it under settings I just see members should I do please help

    my listing form page is saying “username or email” & password and at the bottom it says log in. is the something I need to do so my users can see a sign up option

    is the any plugin I might be missing for this to work

    There are several registration plugins. We recommend “Ultimate Member”. You can get this from

    After installing this plugin,
    1. Go to “Pages” menu and edit “Listing Form” page. You will see a new meta box “Ultimate Member” in the right side of the form.
    2. Enable “Apply custom access settings?” in this meta box.
    3. Then, select “Content accessible to Logged In Users” under “Content Availability” section.

    Save the changes and check now.

    so does the ACADP plugin need all users to be registered by default

    ultimate members plugin is working fine but when a users wants to add a listing and goes to the manage listing page it just says “you do not have sufficient permission to access this page ” and my user dashboard is showing admin how do I change it to my users
