Totally unacceptable Permissions to Poster
I have been so focused on tweaking ClassiPress in other areas before I go live and Public that I had not really investigated the editing capabilities of ClassiPress for the Poster (Author or Contributor). It is essential that the Poster be able to come back and edit their ad--an essential feature that other Classified applications offer. Besides change the text, be able to edit the images they included in the ad. The interface ought to be similar to the form that they filled out.
I am STUNNED to see that ClassiPress 3.0.2 does nothing to modify the Poster dashboard Edit (Post) feature beyond WordPress standard and very limited options.
The only way I can give the Poster the ability to edit an ad is to assign Back Office permissions to Admin,Editors,Authors or Admin,Editors,Authors,Contributors and then make the Poster profile an Author. No other options give the Poster the ability to edit the ad.
But then what I find is absolutely unacceptable powers given to the Poster!
The Poster client sees all the cp custom fields and can DELETE or CHANGE them, including the cp_sys_ad_conf_id!
The Poster can Promote their own ad to a Sticky or Featured ad with a click.
A click on the Media sidebar and all of the images associated with the site are available...every one of them, for every single ad, and any Poster can change or select all of them and DELETE them.
I could go on for several more lines but this just can NOT be right!
I have not read complaints about this so what am I missing?
