How to Verify a Listing
The purpose of this feature is for the members to receive a badge on their listing that lets users know that the member was verified by the website administrator.
A default badge will show on the profile (checkmark) and will show a message telling the public that the listing is verified if users hover over the icon.
How To Turn On Verified My Listing
Please take into consideration that this option cannot be enabled independently for each membership plan. It is either turned On or Off for all membership plans on the website.
To enable the verified member link for members, go to Settings -> Advanced Settings and search for "Verify Listing":
After enabled, members will see the links in their accounts to fill in the form for verification.
The system does not verify members automatically, so the admin will need to verify them after they submit the form. To verify the members please go to Members - Search Members.
Find the member that is going to get verified.
Click on Actions >> Quick Edit:
Go to the listings tab and find the setting: Verified Member? set the member to Verified.
Member Verify Form
In order to modify the default form fields:
Go to Toolbox >> Form Manager and customize the Listing - Verify Account form:
Click on Actions >> Customize. Edit the form fields or add new ones if necessary.
After the Listing - Verify Account form is submitted by the member, this form submission will appear under Emails >> Forms Inbox:
Once the admin verifies the member in the Actions >> Quick Edit menu, the admin can use the email template business-listing-verified to let the member know that the profile has been verified. This email can also be customized.
Custom Verified Badges
The verified badge can be personalized to fit the style of your site. To upload a custom badge, go to General Settings > Brand Images and upload the new icon here:
There is a setting to change the wording or language of the URL where members go to submit the Verify form:
The advanced setting is Member Verify URL
System Variable: default_verify_url
Portion of the URL that will display when a member is verifying their account in the Member Dashboard. By default is promote/verify.
