Query: Place An Add requires "Allow edit own ads?" permission.
Hi again. I've not checked the code on this one, but the reports I've got back from my users is that the "Place An Ad" menu option only apprears if the usergroup has been granted "Allow edit own ads?" permission. I would have thought "Allow posting?" is the only permission they would need to create an ad? Why have a separate edit permission if it has to be turned on for the posting permission to work?
I would make sure you download the distribution and reupload all files incase you have anything corrupt or out of whack.
The place an ad link appears if useruploads is equal to 1 which means allow uploads for that specific usergroup. Telling me it only appears for admins or mods tells me you only have mods and admins set to upload.
OK, I've found out the real problem. You are correct that only "Allow posting?" permission is needed for the user to be able to place an ad. However, the problem lies with chaning the "Allow edit own ads?" permission. To explain, I originally had it so both of these permissions were true for my users. I then disabled the editing permission. However, when the page reloads after saving it has actually disabled the posting permission and left the edit permission enabled. If I reselect no for the edit permission now the posting permission is no, then the save works. As per the other thread, I will PM you login details and instructions on how to replicate this problem.
