    Hi Paolo

    Sorry I meant upgrade the listing not the user.

    I have changed the template to have a sidebar, created a sidebar and added the dashboard widget. However I only have add listing and my listings available on there. How do I add additional things on there and what is available as in the documentation there are many more things like My Favourites and My Invoice History – I have added these already to the userswp addons geodirectory.

    There is also no option to logout. See attached image from your documentation.

    When I select my listing which IS published there is no upgrade option in there. How do I add this.

    I have attached two images to show you what I have.

    Thanks.

    Kind regards

    To see your invoice you need to have some invoice and that now appears as a tab on UWP only (the screenshot you see was from GD v1).

    My Favorites will appear in the gd dashboard widget in your sidebars, but you need to favorite few listings first.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Thanks

    Hi Paolo

    I do have an invoice but it does not appear on the left. If you look at the image I sent the invoice is on the left under the main image next to posts and listings.

    Also there is no option to upgrade. How can I add that?

    The documentation needs serious updating as the instructions for userswp V2 points to this page which you say is v1 !

    Kind regards

    Please provide a link and admin credentials and we’ll check your settings. The screenshots don’t really help as the areas where the invoice and upgrade listings should be are not visible.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I can see the invoices in my profile tab. See the attached image. You should have invoices for your email ID or user. If there are no invoices for you then invoices tab will not display.

    Regards,
    Patrik

    Hi Patrik

    Yes but the Invoices heading is also supposed to be on the right in the sidebar.

    Please look at the images I sent:

    New Sidebar – shows mine which has only Add Listing and then just the type of Listing underneath. No Logout, no favourites, no my listings and no Invoice History.

    Then look at what it is supposed to look like:

    wpgeocopy – shows a lot more tabs in the sidebar. I have these options selected to show but they do not show. There is also a logout from here.

    Is this another V2 difference!

    Kind regards

    No Logout = All login / logout options have been removed from GDV2. Either you use wp login/logout pages or UsersWP or an alternative.
    You have a login/logout link in UWP that can be easily added to a menu. Menus can be added to sidebars with the Navigation Menu widget.

    Favorites = will appear as soon as you have favorites.
    My listings = will appear as soon as you have listings.

    Invoice History = From my previous reply.

    To see your invoice you need to have some invoice and that now appears as a tab on UWP only (the screenshot you see was from GD v1).

    I hope it’s clearer now.

    Thanks

    Hi Paolo

    I think I have it all sorted now BUT it really does need the documentation updating and also maybe some tweaks to the software.

    When reading through the documentation it is clear that what you see after installation is completely different to that shown in the documentation and I hear what you say that the documentation is for GD v1 BUT software is supposed to get better not worse! and also the UWP directs you to that page during the UWP setup for GD v2.

    The penny dropped when you said that the page needed a different template with a sidebar as I had assumed that as the page had been automatically created that it would all be set up correctly. Hence all my questions as to why it was looking different. Perhaps this should be added to the development ie a fully setup page complete with a basic dashboard.

    I still think that the layout needs work as design wise the spacing needs tweaking for both desktop and mobile and what you can put in the sidebar needs adding to which I think you did mention is in development. For instance having your account available from a tiny wheel is not good, it should from a bar in dashboard. Likewise all the rest in the tabs except for the listing should be in the dashboard (all together with just the listings under the profile image).

    There needs to be space under the banner image and before the name because that is too close on mobile and the button to add an image for the small profile which is on the bottom left of the banner image.

    Also there needs to be space at the bottom of the profile as when using a global footer this is bang up to the bottom of the profile.

    The profile page really needs to be called something better than Profile as that sounds impersonal. If possible it should be in the users name or business name but otherwise something like My Account.

    I realise that you can do some of this by editing files etc BUT it would look so much better out of the box.

    I am trying to be constructive here as otherwise I really like the software and also it may help someone else in the same situation.

    Kind regards
