  2. Navigate to wp-admin ⇨ Plugins ⇨ Add New ⇨ Upload. Use the “Browse” button to load the previously downloaded .zip file. Click on “Install Now” to confirm.
  3. Once the plugin is finished installing click on the “Activate” button.


Setting up the plugin

By activating this plugin you have enabled a new page inside the wp-admin ⇨ Pages section. The page name is “WYSIWYG Listing Submission”. To start adding content just visit that page. To generate a new WYSIWYG submission page create a new page from Pages ⇨ Add New and insert this shortcode

[wysiwyg_submission_form post_type='listing']

If you’re using WYSIWYG Submission add-on with Real Estate Directory (or some other parent theme), insert “property” instead of “listing” inside the shortcode. Do the same if you want to generate a new submission page for your custom post type.

If you’re using WYSIWYG Submission add-on with Tevolution FieldsMonetization, use above same shortcode only. Do not use “Tevolution FieldsMonetization” plugin’s shortcode.

Custom Fields

The new WYSIWYG submission page is defined by custom fields available inside the Tevolution ⇨ Custom Fields Setup section. To edit a field label or default value, just open that specific field from the Custom Fields Setup section.

If you’re tweaking custom fields a lot I recommend temporarily disabling the Tevolution cache. You can do that from Tevolution ⇨ Custom Fields Setup (top of the page).

Managing submissions

Once a listing is submitted it will show in the wp-admin ⇨ Listings section of the back-end. The same is true for drafts. Once a visitor saves a draft he/she can later manage it from their user dashboard. You (as admin) can also manage that draft from the Listings area.

The plugin will also create automatic drafts while visitors are filling in content. These drafts are saved for 1 hour. You’ll recognize them by the “Submission In Progress” status in the back-end.

To control what happens with listings once they are submitted (are they drafted or published) navigate to Tevolution ⇨ General Settings ⇨ Submission page settings.
