Changing User Membership Status In Admin - Not Working
I'll check this in the morning and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction to a quick fix.
I'm beta testing my site with the Classipress theme before I go live with it next week. I created a user, posted 2 ads and then decided to change it to a Member's only website using PayPal to join for an annual fee. You must be a member to place ads and you get a discounted price now. I already addressed in another post that you can't create a coupon for a Membership purchase, but I wanted to change the status of the existing user I created to give a free membership.
From the user screen within the Admin panel, I went down to Extended Profile and changed the Membership Pack Expires Date: to a year out from today's date. I went into the Active Membership Pack: and put in the NAME of the package (this could be the problem and that's what I'm not sure of, since I might need something other than the MEMBERSHIP PACKAGE NAME here?). Anyway, I figured this would allow the User i created to continue placing ads as a Member now.
It doesn't, instead each time I login as this User and click Post an Ad, it asks me to pay the Membership fee again, so I can't post ads as the User that I created unless I pay the Membership fee, which is why I'm testing before launching. I figured if I gave the User a free Membership in the ADMIN that it would work, but it's not working.
