in Business directory plugin, If user edit his/her directory AD its goes to pending approval for admin , however this directory AD hide for all users including owner until admin publish it….In case it is not set to admin approval it shows on directory listing page as soon as it is changed ….Is there a way when owner of the AD edit his/ her AD it goes to admin approval but at the same time only owner user can see his AD but no other user….
Looking for help desperately and wondering if someone has solution…
Right now, the directory can only show or hide the ad for all users based on status. Users can still edit their ad and preview it on the admin side, but there’s no way to selectively display just the user’s ad(s) when they’re not published.
Thank you so much for your reply. I really appreciate your help but run into this problem when testing user preview of his/her AD from the backend.
Problem is that on user login on admin site, it is shows all Directory ADs and not his/her AD only.
Is there a way that user can see only his/her AD instead of all the list
Looking forward to any/all help and Thanks in advance.
What version of BD are you running? Is the user that is logged in an administrator or a regular subscriber (non-admin)?
Thanks for your reply. User is a subscriber and version of the BD is 3.0.2. when you login with that subscriber on WP backend , that subscriber can see / edit the whole directory…. Is there a way that subscriber can only Edit his/her AD even if whole directory listing is available on backend portal.
Any help is greatly appreciated…
We think we have a fix for this now. It will be publicly available in 3.0.3. We’re not quite ready to release it, as it’s bundled in with a bunch of other minor fixes we need to collectively validate. I’m hoping this can be released within the next week or so.
Thanks for your reply. I update this version but still i have same issue…User is a subscriber. when you login with that subscriber on WP backend Admin Pannel, that subscriber can see / edit the whole directory…. Is there a way that subscriber can only Edit his/her AD even if whole directory listing is available on backend portal.
Or is there any way when subcribe user login from front end site, first he view only his ADS then other ADS listing…
Any help is greatly appreciated…
Which version are you currently running? The latest is 3.1.1 and this issue should have been addressed a long time ago. Please make sure you are on the latest.
If you are still seeing this issue, first, try testing for a conflict: Here is an article about how to test for theme and plugin conflicts with Business Directory, which may help pinpoint the issue: http://businessdirectoryplugin.com/support-forum/faq/how-to-check-for-plugin-and-theme-conflicts-with-bd/
Report back if that doesn’t help.
Can u gave me one more solution, AT front end, when user log in, whole directory listing shows first, but i want before listing shows,
first it shows user AD’s and then Directory listing. Its very easy for every person who log in and View his/her AD first then go other listing ADs.
Now, in this plugin user take time to find first his/her AD and then edit
Thanks, waiting for your good response
I really need you to try the conflict test above, and report your specific version of BD to further help with the issue. Can you please do that?
A subscriber user post his new AD, its proper shows at business directory listing. After that when subscriber edit his AD its goes to pending but i want, that subscriber user view his AD whether his AD goes to pending approval or publish.
Our requirement, How subscriber user view/edit only his AD after log in whether his AD is still pending for admin approval.
In our last Posts, we mentioned if subscriber log in from admin site he view all directory listing and also edit all ADs, how user can view and edit only his AD from admin site… this is our Question and your reply is that the problem solved in BD ver. 3.0 but problem still exist.
I try this plugin in new theme and install just one plugin BD to check whether this problem is solved or pending but still pending
There are following screenshots
1- Step 1 – Its shows BD page
2- Step 2 – Login screen to Submit and Edit the AD
3- Step 3 – After login, the BD listing page shows edit option according to user AD
4- Step 4 – After edit AD, that particular AD disappear for pending approval
5- Step 5 – subsciber user login at admin site no directory listing shows
OK, I will have my developer try that out and see if we can reproduce it. I’ll let you know what we find.
We are waiting for new updates regarding this issue
My apologies, my developer had a response and I forgot to post it for you:
Subscribers aren’t allowed to see listings on the backend because that’s what the role means–they can’t edit posts. Other roles do see listings on the backend but BD tries its best to show only listings belonging to them and restrict administrative actions like approving the listing, changing Paid status, etc.
We had some issues in prior versions but the current version handles this correctly now.
It is not possible to show listings like that to Subscribers because posts aren’t shown to Subscriber roles on the backend–this is a WordPress limitation, not a BD one. There are modules to change the permissions each role has, but I don’t think this is a very good idea.
I agree that we should be able to show a user that he has some listings pending approval. We have a shortcode (businessdirectory-managelistings) that can be used inside a page to show the logged-in user the listings he has in the directory.
In any case, it is simply not possible to show these listings on the backend for subscriber roles. The screenshots posted just show this: the backend doesn’t display listings. We can think of options on the frontend, but I’m not sure what’s the best way to do this.
This shortcode (businessdirectory-managelistings) is not in BD plugin, If this shortcode is in new plugin then when this updates online
