    8.7 beta

    Listing Setup > Settings

    i have Default Listing Status set to Pending Admin Review

    but there is a note below that box that says “if the user pays for a listing, it will go live straight away”

    so which is it?

    i want all submissions to first be reviewed by admin, no exception

    how can i do this?

    (btw, google doesn’t like auto-approved listings free or paid, it considers these spam “pay to list”), so requiring manual admin review and approval is kinda important (and of all edits, etc)

    thanks

    Hello Will,
    Currently when a user makes payment the Listing goes automatically live

    Hi Mark,

    You may recall me asking about this some time ago?

    Much prefer that Admin has control over all submitted listings so irregardless of submission i.e. free or paid, it first needs to be approved for checks etc.

    In addition, when user edits or effects any/all changes, again, its held for Admin approval.

    Has this now been implemented?

    Regards

    @Richard,
    1.Currently paid listings go live automatically.You can add it here >>https://ideas.premiumpress.com/ so Mark Fail can consider adding the feature to hold all listings,paid or free till admin approval.
    2.This was added in the new versions under Theme Options >Listing Setup >Settings >Listing Approval

    @Josh,

    Thanks for that,

    I did 1) some time back in which Mark did say he would make a note of this.

    Just checking that he remembered 🙂
