Due to the plugin ‘featured levels’ (I think) the plugin automatically shows additional info on my fee selection page that I actually don’t want to have visible for customers.
Check attached screenshot below, in the red bordered box.
I read through all kinds of topics and support documentation, but can’t find the .css file to remove this info.
First I thought to disable featured levels and therefore have the fee page changed automatically, but I really need it to have specific “Field Display Access” (specific form fields per fee plan and the option to add an attachment).
Can you shortly give me instructions on how to eliminate this additional info from my fee page? (entirely, like character limit, google maps, amount of images, etc.). I just want to manage this myself completely with ‘fee plan description’.
Sorry, I’m not able to access the link you provided (403 Permission Denied) but as I understand, there is unfortunately no option inside the plugin settings to remove or hide the fee details. So this is something that would require custom CSS or direct changes in the core files to make this happen today.
Here is an article about how to use custom CSS with Business Directory in a way that doesn’t get overwritten on upgrade of BD:
For making direct changes, the file you can start looking from is:
Note: Any changes that you make in the plugin directory itself (under templates) will be overwritten on upgrade. So you need to keep a backup and upgrade knowing this will happen. This is a WordPress plugin upgrade mechanism causing this behavior and unfortunately, this is not something we can stop.
Ah sorry, should have checked image accessibility.
This option should work:
So, as you can see (compared to other plugin users) I customized the text already a little bit a while ago.
I realized I’d much rather have nothing of these featured options visible as it doesn’t add value for customers to base their decision of fee plan on. It shows so much text, that I think it fades out the core message of each plan.
I would like to just show differences by writing different fee plan descriptions in the basic plugin (and therefore control this myself easily).
PS. I just checked the php of featured levels like you suggested but I can’t really find the line that has to do with the above.
Thanks for the screenshot, Anna. In the php file that I’ve mentioned, you need to look at the ‘sprintf’ lines that are responsible for outputting the fee details text on step 2. For example:
if ( $char_limit == 0 )
$description .= ‘✓ ‘ . __( ‘Unlimited content length for your listing.’, ‘wpbdp-featured-levels’ );
$description .= ‘• ‘ . sprintf( __( ‘Character limit of %d characters for your listing content.’, ‘wpbdp-featured-levels’ ), $char_limit );
That is the source code you need to modify to get your desired output. Unfortunately, I do not have exact pointers on what exactly to change but normally with such requests, we assume that you have the skills to do so when you start–which include, but are not limited to, advanced PHP, WordPress API, HTML and CSS. If you’re not comfortable with these, you’ll probably want to hire someone to help you make those changes. If you need help, there are a few great resources to help you out here.
2) Codeable, which has WordPress expert developers available for short-term projects: https://codeable.io/
3) The last option would be hiring a developer on Upwork (formerly known as oDesk) to help out if you think this is beyond your current skill set. http://upwork.com There’s a lot of decent folks on there as well.
Thanks! This helped.
Does it work the same as with like custom css changes and .po file changes? –> that I upload the new php file under wp-content/plugins ? So that is doesn’t get overwritten?
That sort of gives me a chance for trial & error too, but if php files don’t go like that, then I might stay away from it.
No, unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. Any changes that you make in the plugin directory itself (under templates) will be overwritten on upgrade. So you need to keep a backup and upgrade knowing this will happen. This is a WordPress plugin upgrade mechanism causing this behavior and unfortunately, this is not something we can stop.
If you’re not comfortable with making such changes yourself, the resources I mentioned are worth considering.
