I have listing expiry option set to 2 days before and the listing should go to draft status. I stopped the paypal auto pay on 08/24. Today is 08/27 and the listing still shows in the directory, and did not go to draft status. Admin shows it expiring at 08/24. The listing and listing package was created under version 4.3
Questions: 1) Shouldnt the listing have been removed from activie directory and go to draft status by now? 2) Why is there an option on the listing expiry as days BEFORE? Shouldnt a listing expire X days AFTER it is not renewed (the paypal stream was stopped). 3) Finally, if the system gets corrected so that an stopped paypal stream does cause the listing to go to draft and no longer shows in the listing, WILL the end client be able to access his listing in draft status, edit, and pay again to repost his listing?
Since i know your currently engaged, did you see this issue?
1. ill ill check this when i get back but iv not seen any issues elsewhere.
2. the listing is expired when the expiry date is reached, its that simple.
3. listings can be edited and renewed by the user in drfat status yes.
Is anyone else checking for this? I have listings that clearly showed expired in admin, yet they STILL appear in the active directory, whereas they should now be in draft status.
1 and 2 above still not working. for 3, i set a listing to draft in admin, and then logged on firefox as the customer and could NOT see my draft status listing which implies once 1 and 2 ARE FIXED, a listing that does expire, will not be able to be reedited and reactivated.
Gary, update on what? nothing has been checked so your updating yourself.
Last warning Gary, forum spam and bumping isnt accepted and you’ve been warned.
I tested #3 and found it also to not work. I thought that was note worthy and worth passing along since you said it did work. Not trying to spam or bump. Sorry.
Gary from now on if you have issues use the ticket desk, spamming the forum isnt the acceptable method of getting attention.
Garry, do you have any plugins active? The issue that you have described could happen due to caching plugins – if any listing shows as expired in admin, it is expired on the front end too, but if you use a caching plugin, people will still see the the cached version. Especially plugins like w3t total cache and similar cause many unexpected issues.
checked and tested, no issues with listing expiry to draft.
