Second, the Administrator of the site needs to set up the places where the non-admin users can place their ads, and the price for placing it. To do so, log into your AdminCP and go to:
Modules >> Ads >> Ads Placements

After that, if you want to, for example, allow Registered Users to create ads, log into your AdminCP and go to:
Users >> User Group Manager >> Manage User Groups

This page will list all the available user groups. Lets work with the following user group:

Manage User Settings

Look for and enable the setting:

After enabling this setting, Registered Users will have a new footer menu link "Advertise", where they can create their own ads.
