I just installed your plug-in, but I’m not seeing a link underneath ‘Posts’ in the Admin UI – or anywhere else – so I’m unable to create any categories etc. I’m using WP 341 and the twenty-ten theme, if that helps.
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).
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?
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…
