    Hi, downloaded and installed earlier, setup settings and connected to Ebay, and that's pretty much as far as it goes.
    I saw your screencasts, and somewhat different than this plugin.
    Setup debug but shows nothing.
    In Tool/Debug when I click the Test Ebay Connection, the Debug disappears and I need to check under Screen options to bring back and try again with same results.
    That's pretty much with all the dropdowns. Either no reactions or open blank.
    Any known conflicts that could be causing this?
    Using WP 3.5.1 and woocommerce 2.08

    Do I need a commercial store account with ebay?

    I'm afraid there are no knows issues like this. In fact, it's working perfectly well for more than just a few users...

    It could be related to your server config (you're not trying to run it on a windows server, are you?) or to other plugins you have installed.

    To investigate this, I'd recommend you create an account on your site so I can have a look. You should contact me via http://www.wplab.com/contact/ regarding the login - or via Skype.

    kind regards,

    One more thing: Have you checked your servers error log for anything that could be related to this?

    Thanks Matt,
    I was hoping you might have run into a previous.
    I tried on a live site but will have to replicate elsewhere
    as cannot chance breaking site, and contact you at that time.

    Hi again,

    with the login you provided it was actually quite easy to find the issue - which is caused by some CSS rules which you seem to have added to your admin.css and which in fact do hide each and every "message box" (the yellow things on top) in your whole admin!

    The problem is that WP-Lister uses these yellow message boxes quite extensively - as do other plugins - so you should never ever have those lines in your admin.css:

    div.updated p, div.error p { display: none; }
    .updated.fade {display: none; }
    #message.updated.woocommerce-message.wc-connect {display: none !important;}

    Remove these lines, and you will see what you should have seen in the first place - a yellow box telling you about the next required step to setup WP-Lister. You haven't even completed step 2 yet.

    And please, don't add these lines again when the setup is done!

    You need to see these yellow boxes - if you hide them, you effectively break your WordPress.

    kind regards,

    Thanks Matt,
    I'll try it and let you know.
    About the css, IMO, the developers have started what I consider bad practices by putting notices in your face. All those notice together take up a half page of the admin space, in my face, that I need to scroll down before I can look for what I want.
    All in the name that they will keep me informed of updates. There are plenty of other ways of doing that rather than polluting the admin area.
    And of course, more to confuse clients that click on with no knowledge of the consequences.
    Sorry for spouting, but....
    As a developer that has built such an extensive and promising plugin, it should be a breeze not to use the admin area and of course prevent these cases.
    I think if you look around, I'm not alone in this issue and more designers will be blocking out ads in the admin area and in turn legitimate content.
    Thanks for listening and your help.
