gpress error adding places

    When I try to add a place I get the message place is added. But when I go the place, the post is not found. The blog uses custom permalinks “/%postname%/”.
    The log file does not show any error, but the place is not added into the database?

    What is happening?

    Wordpress 3.0 , Buddypres 1.2.5.2 , gPress 0.2.4, Theme: Buddypress Widget Theme 1.2.1 (Uses Buddypress Default Theme Files)

    How can I resolve this?

    Have you confirmed that the places are not being saved to the database by accessing MySQL…?

    If you click on the “places” in the admin left-hand sidebar do you see a list of them…?

    I just need to try and establish if they do not show-up on the front-end within the theme, the back-end WordPress administration section, or both. Have never not had them show-up in the admin section or database before.

    But it can be tricky to get them to work from a front-end point of view, depending on what theme you have, advanced settings or other plugins.

    Perhaps you could provide me with a link or place where I can log-in and try to take a look at things for you…?

    Hi Mark,

    Tnx for looking into it. The places are not in the list on the sidebar (this is in the default admin theme section, where I also save the place, so it couldn’t be a theme thing….). Where in Mysql are they stored? Which table exactly, then I can look if they are there…

    Hi Mark,

    Discovered something.

    The place is not stored when there is no title.
    The place is not stored when your role is author or less, so you have to be at least editor or administrator to store a place. Would be nice if even authors could do it….

    And I still really would like to know form you in which table everything is supposed to be stored.

    Tnx!

    All information pertaining to “places” is found in the standard WP post table, as they are merely custom post types – we do have plans to look into the possibility of better control over what can be seen by what level of user – and are hoping to get to that particular problem this coming weekend.

    Unfortunately, this weekend’s release only allow super_admins to remove or overwrite gPress functionality from a sitewide / network point of view – I did not get a chance to look at providing gPress options for lower-levels such as Authors, but it did remind me to add it to my list of priorities for the next release, so this might hopefully be available the following weekend…

    I just ran some tests with Authors – and on my install, they are able to add new places, just like they are able to add new posts, are you sure this is not the case on your install…?

    Since places are custom post types, they should follow the same rules applied to posts, where only authors or higher can create…

    An Author can create places here… seems that an external facebook login automatically gets the subscriber level instead of the default Author level in WordPress?? Strange but true.

    Does that mean I can now close this particular topic?
