Some issues with adding and editing a listing
« on: October 02, 2019, 06:17:20 am »
Hi, I'm generally satisfied with the classifieds mod and thought I was set some time ago already, but I've just noticed a problem that needs to be resolved soon!

The problem is that if I state the email address associated with my PayPal account for the 'PayPal Address:' field and then submit the listing, or edit the listing and then submit it, the email address does not show; the listing is not updated accordingly. 

Subsequently no buy-button or similar is showing either for other registered members or guests.  So the whole thing isn't working properly.  I've checked the settings, permissions, etc and all seems to be in order, so what to do?

Check your category settings settings. First, edit the category and check "No Price/No Bidding"

OK, maybe I didn't explain the issue clearly enough, so I'll try again.

Once a listing is put up in the classifieds section, how do visitors (registered members, guests) actually buy the item?  What setting do I have to enable for this to be possible?

Guests can 't buy or bid on items.

For regular members and all non admin membergroups they need to have at least these two permissions
View Classifieds    
Bid on Listing

Which you enable under Admin -> Permissions then modify each member group.
With that permission they can bid auction items, or buy it now items.

OK, thanks.  You say these two, but I don't want bidding so can I just select View Classifieds?

Biding does buy it now as well. Bidding only occurs if you enabled auctions on the category level.

Right, just enabled View Classifieds and Bid on Listing for all member groups and post count based groups, BUT THERE'S NO BUY BUTTON!

Is it a normal listing? When create a listing does give you an option to enter buy it now price?


Also check you did not hide it under Admin -> Classifieds Configurations -> Settings -> Layout Settings
The bottom of the page.

Thanks again.  Turns out that 'buy it now' option was checked so I unchecked it and it;s now showing, but problem now is that if a registered member clicks on it, an error message comes up saying 'you are not allowed to bid on this category'.
I don't get it.  This is a 'buy it now' button, not a 'bid for it now' button, so why does bidding even come into it.  I don't want bidding.

It looks like you setup category level permissions restricting bidding for that membergroup. I would remove those permissions from that category for all users.
Bidding is not involved in listings with buy it now. So that error message is a little misleading.

That's right, I did setup category level permissions restricting bidding for that member group (in fact for all member groups) because I don't want bidding; I don't want auction listings.  I just want ordinary 'item for sale' listings. 

Also, how is restricting bidding permissions any different from removing them?  It's the same thing. 

The error message is the one that I get, misleading or not.

What do I do?

Just do not enable auction listings when editing the category. There is a checkbox "Can have auction listings " as long as that is not checked there is no auction listings.

Then just remove the category level permissions that disable bidding since that affects buy it now as well and that should be it.

I've never had 'Can have auction listings' checked for any category; I have never had auction listings.

Which are the category level permissions that disable bidding (just to be sure)?

Thank you.

You do not need to disable bidding it is not used if you have a normal listing. You have to keep it enabled!
I am going to rename bidding permission to bid/purchase in the next major update to make it less confusing.

First you say disable it, now you say keep it enabled.  You are either deliberately confusing this whole thing, or something else.  Now answer the question.  Which is: Which are the category level permissions that disable bidding (just to be sure)?

As it is, the classifieds system is not usable, it does not work properly.
