    Hi guys,
    I cant seem to have the Claim Listing button to appear. how does that work? I have imported a list of Listings and ensured they are not allocated to anyone. Is there something im missing?

    thanks,
    Dan.

    Did you populate the claim email field for each listing?

    Then how are people supposed to claim that listing? The claim listing uses the email custom field to match the email of the person claiming it. Without the email present the claim listing will not work.

    Do you mean in the csv import file? I believe the heading name is ’email’.
    But to be sure, just edit one listing and populate that field and then do export and the field will be shown in the export file.

    Kind regards,

    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    My question is simple, is there a function/button/link that needs to be activated in order for a listing to become “Claimable”?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Display Settings>Search/Listings Page>Listings Page Display Options

    Make sure you hit save even if they’re already set correctly.

    Hi, Was this resolved? I’m running into the same issue. My box in Claim Listing is set to Show,

    Can you create a member in your site who can create a listing without the listing being attributed to an author (owner)?

    If there is an author (owner) associated, does this prevent the listing from not being claimed?

    I tried creating free listings in my site, but everything is reverting to the admin being the author (owner)

    Let me explain how the claim listing works:
    1) You need to enable it at Display Settings>Search/Listings Page>Listings Page Display Options
    2) Admin creates a listing
    3) Make sure that the ‘Owners Email’ field is populated with email of the ‘owner’ (or the person that would be claiming it)
    4) Visitors who are not registered and loged in the site will see the ‘claim listing’ button
    5) When they click on the button, they are taken to the registration screen
    6) Once registered using the same e-mail address that the listing had, the listing will be assigned to them.

    The very important part is the presence of the ‘Owner Email’ (custom field ’email’ in the csv import)

    I hope you understand my explanation.

    Kind regards,

    Richard

    Just an idea on the claim listing:

    If the email is blank the listing would display a a snip of code that would tell the user to add a unique tag to the header of their site

    <meta property=”clainlisting”content=”Hjgh^567hgjGJYuykbvyt7578587″>
    or to add a text file Hjgh^567hgjGJYuykbvyt7578587.txt (and downlodable) to their website.

    When done Click button to verify… app hits the url and tada listing is claimed.

    Hi Richard
    1,2,3 are OK, done that.
    # 4, The listings are tied to a membership package. I don’t want any users accessing the listing until they have registered.

    I created a user with the same address as what was in the listing, which was created by admin.
    I login as the client, Go to the listing, but there is no claim button.

    1. I set the submission packages to All Package Access
    2. Created the Listing as Administrator with email of the owner (that I created in # 3)
    3. Created an account with the owners email address. Set a membership package against the account in Members
    4. When I log in as the Owner and pull up the listing, I do not see the claim listing, the option is enable to SHOW in Claim Listing (Display Settings)
    5. When I go in as the Administrator, I see the Author Options.
