Video tutorial How Agency and Developer user roles work


Notes about WpResidence user types:

  • 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)
  • A standard user will not have any profile page created. User can submit properties or can login just to save favorites or save searches.
    Similarities between user types:

Similarities between user types:

  • All types can submit properties.
  • For user you can select what pages to show in submit form from theme options
  • Agency, agency, and developer have their own profile page (different design) You can see examples here
  • 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.
  • User doesn’t have a page profile.
  • User dashboard options are managed from theme options

Admin can also select specific membership packages for a specific user type from Membership Packages – Add Package
