    classyfrieds works with custom posts (to keep things neat and separated).
    Anytime custom posts are used, these ‘posts’ do not end up in your ‘posts’ block in the Admin UI. Instead you should look for a ‘classyfrieds’ block.

    There you can write ‘posts’ called classyfrieds, and see listings that users submitted. There you can also create classycats (a custom type of categorie that only shows up in the classifieds system).

    in short, create classycats not categories. See screenshot :

    Thanks for the prompt reply. I’m maybe not making myself clear. – This link (below ‘Posts’, called Classyfrieds) is the one I’m not seeing.

    this one is buried deep but it’s worth the shot. Do you have the screen-options checked for these custom posts ?
    (Don’t ask me why but this must be WordPress’s least intuitive feature).
    go to appearance – > menus – then select screen options top right.

    I have found out what is causing this and am posting back here in case it’s of use to others. I have the W4 Post List plug-in installed and it appears in the Admin menu immediately beneath ‘Posts’ – that is, in the position Classyfrieds is occupying in your example. If I de-activate this plug-in, then Classyfrieds shows up in my Admin UI. Trouble is, I do use this plug-in (W4 Posts), so de-activating it on a long-term basis is not an option for me. So – that’s the cause. Do you think a solution might be possible?

    good catch, that was helpful ! Both plugins occupy the same menu position. Just happens that W4 won.

    if you are comfortable with the built in plugin editor:
    go to classyfrieds -> init.php and put 2 slashes in front of the menu postion line (line 29 ) as follows :

    // create the custom posts
    function create_classyfrieds_type() {
    		'description' => 'classified listings for the classyfried system',
    		'public' => true,
            //'menu_position' => 6,   <<<<-----------<<<<---------
    		'show_ui' => true,
    		'show_in_menu' => true,
    		'show_in_admin_bar' => true,
    		'capability_type' => 'post',
    		'hierarchical' => false,

    This will move the whole classyfrieds block to the bottom of the menu tree. Although we don’t like being last in the list we’ll remove the line in the next update 🙂

    Thanks – that seems to have sorted it out.

    Hmmm….well, now I’m getting this: Warning: include(/web1/user270/website/Newsite/wp-content/plugins/classyfrieds/themefiles//language/english.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /web1/user270/website/Newsite/wp-content/plugins/classyfrieds/themefiles/cats-listing.php on line 12.
    Two things strike me about this: First, notice the double ‘//’ at ‘themefiles//language’and second, there is no file called ‘english.php’ in that language folder. There’s one called ‘lang_english.php’ though…

    the whole language system was revamped in V 2.3 so using the latest version you should not get any warnings anymore.

    If needed use the flush button on the bottom-right in the classyfrieds admin section.
