    Serious flaw in Claim Listing plugin - How to fix?

    I noticed, what appears to be, a serious flaw in the Claim Listing process, specifically with new account registrations.

    I have multiple Account Types. When someone claims a listing and creates a new account, all they do is enter their Name and Email.

    BUT ... they're automatically assigned to an Account Type, and there's no way for them to change their Account Type in their Profile. So what if they're being assigned to the wrong Account Type?

    Why isn't there an option, when they enter their Name and Email, to also select an Account Type when they register for a claim listing? Like there is a for a "Quick Sign-Up"?

    Am I missing something here?

    If not, how can this be fixed?

    Thank you
    Ron

    Will check this shortly Curtis, appreciate your help and will respond back here.

    I quietly think this plugin is a sleeping giant for anyone wanting to build out thier site and gain momentum, Time will tell but my gut tells me that used properly this will be a winner.

    Wei, I think it is much more than that, in that if I write my "claim this listing" posts very well optimised for SEO then it will be more doorways into the site, brining in more traffic, plus you get the site looking like it is being used.

    Magic I think for people with real estate sites, or any other similar niches.

    I will once tested, paste-up how to set everything up for those who want to use this

    Cheers
