*There is 1 WordPress user Role used in our theme, “Subscriber”. “Agents, Agencies, Developers or Users” are different types of the same user role.
**Agent, Agency and Developer have a profile page created automatically on registration (which is listed in Admin – Agents, Agencies and Developers)
*** Agent can be created only from admin (without user). Or it can register in front end and manage properties from front end dashboard. Check here how to sync the agent with user manually.
*** Agency and Developer must have a user attached to their profile for their email to show and emails to be sent to their email address. So they must register in front end.
**** A standard user will not have any profile page created, he registers in front end and can Add Properties too.
Similarities between user types:
- All types can submit properties
- Agency, agency, and developer have their own profile page (different design) You can see examples here https://wpresidence.net/
- Admin can create different submission membership packages for each user type from admin
- For agent, developer and Agency types, Admin can select which user type to approve manually (or all can be approved automatically). If manual approval is needed, admin has to approve (publish) the profile page from admin in order for the user to see the add property form in his dashboard.
Differences between user types:
- Agency and Developer can add their agents and these agents will use the membership package attached to the agency or developer
- Agency or developer can enable or disable the agent and its properties.

The categories and types for these new options must be created from admin in order for them to exist in the front end. See below video.
Video: Allow Agencies / Developers to add their own agents
For agencies and developers, we allow them to add/edit and disable their own agents from their account. That is possible if you create 2-pages with specific custom page templates. See this video

Admin can manually publish agents/agencies or developers. This is how it works
Create membership packages for each user role
