Hi I’m using the latest version of Directory press v9. I’d like it a lot but… This is a bit frustrating. I keep updating and publish my listings and yet keep coming as draft in later time.
What can I do? What is going wrong?
Hi I just found the fix for my problem. Most of my listings were expired. Meaning Custom field named ‘listing_expiry_date’ had a past date value.
In order to update this I had to download a plugin Custom Field Bulk Editor. This will update the value of a custom field in multiples listings at once. I’m aware this process can also be done directly from mySQLadmin.
Update my draft listings to publish all at once – this is the query I use in my database and it worked.
UPDATE wp_posts SET post_status = ‘publish’ WHERE (post_type=’listing_type’ and post_status=’draft’);
In case someone need to know this for future issues like mine. Directory theme V9 now works with my previous database.
