Free Ads For All!
I discovered a problem this evening on the new version of RP Classifieds. I saw three ads come through for a new user. The usergroup is set up to allow 1 free ad and then charge per ad thereafter.
All three ads came through the standard approval queue. Based on my setup, 1 should have come to the standard approval queue, and two should have gone to the payment queue. I was confused by this and ran a test. I submitted a new ad as a user who had not taken advantage of the 1 free ad I give away. While that was in the admin queue awaiting approval, I placed another ad. This ad did not show the fee that should have been charged for this ad.
The person that entered three ads and should have paid for two, ultimately got three free ads since I had not approved the first ad before the subsequent ads were entered.
I would view this as something that needs to be looked at since the ad placment process clearly overlooked all of the category permissions and setup that would otherwise have charged a fee for subsequent ads.
