Front Submission/Dealer Dashboard (Intro)

The “Car Dealer Front Submission” plugin extends the features of the “Car Dealer” theme. This plugin provides vehicle sellers (dealers and individual sellers) features of the dashboard and profile page, through which users can manage their details/vehicles and can display their vehicles and details.

This plugin allows users to add and update their personal details, as well as add, update, delete and enable/disable their vehicles through the dealer dashboard.

This plugin has two main parts, the first on the admin side, and the second front.

  • Admin Side: From the admin side, site administrators can approve pending vehicles, manage Theme Options, and manage Pricing Packages Plan.
  • Front Side: From the front side, vehicle sellers (dealers and users) can manage their items, account details, and settings.

Important Note
The new dealer dashboard uses the author archive page as a base. So, make sure that the author archive page is not restricted/disabled by any setting/customization (such as by the Yoast SEO plugin).

Admin Side

Theme Options

For details about theme options, please refer to this document.

Vehicle Approval

When a dealer/user adds a vehicle, and the “Auto Publish Vehicle” field is unchecked (disabled), the newly added vehicle will be pending for publishing by the administrator. So, the admin can approve the newly added vehicle from the Admin Panel > Vehicle Inventory section. Once a vehicle is published then only it will become live for the end-users.

User Registration/Activation

Once the user registers on the site and the “User Activation By” field is set to “Admin Approval“, the newly added account will be pending for the administrator’s approval, and the Administrator and the new user will be notified by email about this new registration.

And, from the user profile edit screen, the administrator can activate the pending user.

Front Side

On the front side, vehicle sellers can create accounts, manage items, manage account details, and manage settings. They can perform all vehicle-related tasks, like adding a new vehicle, editing the existing vehicle, deleting the vehicle, disabling or enabling the vehicle, and so on.

Pending Vehicles

Once a seller adds a new vehicle, it will be displayed on his/her dashboard’s item listing page. however, its status will remain pending until the admin changes its status to “Published“. And, the vehicle’s status is “Pending” only the owner will be able to view that vehicle.

Vehicle Actions

On the vehicle listing page, the vehicle seller is provided with various actions to manage his listing.

Template Override

The “Car Dealer Front Submission” plugin is built in such a way that you can easily customize it according to your need. You can also override templates of the plugin easily.

To override the template, you need to maintain the template hierarchy structure. We mentioned the template path at the top of each template file to override that template.

For example, to override a mail template using a child theme, you can create a template file inside your child theme by the following location. “CHILD_THEME/cardealer-front-submission/templates/mails/mail.php”.
