I have looked through your documentation but I am struggling to find a way of how to get directory users to be automatically added to my mailing list. Has the plugin got built in integration for mailing software or is there a work around that you know of. I need to be able to send mail campaigns and promotions to list subscribers and I'm hoping not to have to add them manually to my list.
Also, for some strange reason, my categories are no longer showing the listings. It shows the number count and when you click on the category it says 'no listings found.' It worked perfectly before, but for some reason has now stopped.
Sadly, we do not currently integrate with any mailing software but this is something we can consider for future. The reason we don't have any in-built option for this is that the pain of sending bulk email is too much to tackle when you have awesome services like MailChimp, Aweber, Drip, etc to do this instead. Also, these services maintain their CAN-SPAM compliance and you can quickly get into trouble if you don’t.
You can however, export listing information from BD (such as email address etc.) and use it in your mailing software if you like.
As for the other issue, what version of WP and BD plugin do you have? Are all of your listings public and published? It could be some incompatibility issue so I’d suggest you start troubleshooting by running a conflict test as suggested here:
Please let me know your findings.
