? Getting Packages Seen by Unregistered Visitors : How To?

I have four listing packages created that show fine to logged in, registered visitors. I would like that exact same info/page that they see to choose to make a purchase, seen by random, unregistered visitors to my site so they can know, prior to registration if they are interested in listings offered. I have set in: >Submission >Setup Options >Visitors Must Login: "No" ....which according to the info. in the popup for that option, "This will force visitors to login before they can submit a new listing. If you set this to 'No' and the visitors doesnt have an account, the system will automatically create one for them after they submit a listing." But, I don't see how they can submit a listing first. When an unregistered visitor clicks the List Your Business link on my site (i just changed the name from Submit to this, but the content is the original) the registration form still comes up instead of listing choices. Here is my site: Can someone give me a tip on this please? The main goal of my site is to get business owners to buy listings. I have no intent on charging for memberships or offering extras to certain membership levels, etc. and so I would like it as quick and easy for them to start creating an ad and get listed. Thank you!

    This is due to how you have your memberships setup. If you disable memberships, you will see the listing packages even for non registered users.

    Okay, so – I went to: >Memberships and
    under >Memberships set ‘Diable’
    under >Registration set ‘Don’t Display’
    under >My Account set ‘Don’t Display’

    logged out, refreshed multiple times my home page and then clicked: List Your Business

    Still came up with the :
    —- Access Denied – Please Upgrade
    Access to this page is denied for your membership level. Please upgrade to a different membership to access this page. —-

    So I went back to Memberships and deleted the one membership I had previously created, saved, logged out, and I am still getting this rather than the Listings Options I set up.

    Under >Submissions >Setup Options I have set ‘Visitors Must Login’ to ‘No’.

    Under >Submissions >Packages I have ‘Enable Packages’ and ‘Force Membership’ selected.

    Am I missing some other setting now?????

    Under >Submissions >Packages I have ‘Enable Packages’ and ‘Force Membership’ selected.

    It is the ‘Force Membership’ – it ‘forces’ people to register before they can submit (view packages).

    Whew! Okay, thanx! got this one going. So many settings, in so many places. 🙁

    That is actually why I purchased this script – LOL! – was because it offered so much more than others. Just got to get to know my way around.

    Thank you. 🙂

    One more question please, while we are on this topic:

    If I turn OFF registrations = >General Setup >System >User Registration, >Registration – Enabled or Disabled will folks who purchased listings still be able to register after purchasing a listing?

    I am trying to stop visitors from registering if they have NOT purchased a listing on my site.

    Anyone Help please
    I am having problem displaying menbership packages in my registration page.
    Although I enable it from the display option, it still doesn’t work.

    Hi – you need to actually create the membership packages too. Did you do that?

    On the >Membership Packages page >Package Name section (to the right of the enable area) you need to key in a package name, then click Save Changes. Then go back to that area and click the Show/Hide Options and fill that out then save it again.

    Then you will have a package or packages to show. You can do just one. And you can charge for it or not.

    See if that helps!?!?!? get them to show up. 🙂

    Now I am trying to do the same setup with my Responsive DP theme.

    I have deleted all the Example memberships. And not set up any new ones.

    Under >General Settings >Submission Settings >Allow Visitor Submissions turned on.

    But cannot get my Listing Packages to show unless I enable under >Gen Settings >Registration >Allow Visitors to Register Accounts.

    I don’t want visitors to register accounts. I only want folks who pay for listings to have accounts and that is after they order their ad. So in essence I need the Force Membership setting. But I cannot find anything like that now. 🙁

    And I don’t want someone to be able to just randomly create an account and then never order an ad.

    Something I missed again maybe????

    Thanx! anyone. 🙂
