    Hello,

    Crowd sourced platforms like Foursquare and Yelp allows users to update or suggest edit the data for all the venues in their databases. I couldn’t find that option on Whoop theme. What will be the best way to implement that ?

    Here is how yelp moderates it:

    With the Claim Listings addon, users can claim any of your listings as their own. Then they can edit anything you allow them to.

    If you want “To suggest business information changes as a Yelper:”, you can use the https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs/useful-plugins/#report plugin.

    Thanks

    Actually I want all my members to be able to update the listings. Since Whoop is a Yelp clone, do you have plans to have that feature in future. If not, then I will hire a developer to add it for me. So I just wanted to know where I need to make changes to add that feature, do I need to make changes in the claim listing plugin or make changes in the whoop theme ?

    Thanks for your reply.

    You can just give your users author access, and give them access to the backend, then they can edit any post.
    GD > General > Allow user to see wp-admin area > YES
    WP Settings > New User Default Role > Contributor or author

    You can also find some user role plugins that may assist.

    Thanks
