What are the features that you would like to see in a directory theme?

1.) The ability to provide a nationwide search function, with filter options based on customizable category selections that can be determined by the admin.

2.) The allotment of advertising space to sell, so that the site can be self sustaining.

3.) The ability to let visitors add their business listing, by providing all of their contact information, a 250 word description of their services, designate business hours, fees, prices, etc., and then be sent directly to a payment gateway, for subscription purposes, with either a submission to admin for approval after verifying payment, OR a return to the site’s main page, after having submitted payment.

4.) Backend / admin setting that would allow the admin to be able to see when a subscriber’s payment is overdue, to send a notification directly to the subscriber for communication purposes or to send a payment is due reminder.

5.) The ability for visitors of the site to send an e-mail communication directly to a subscriber (business listed), through the site.

6.) No gallery for images.

7.) The ability to customize colors (primary colors primarily, with a few additional options)

8.) WP based, of course.

9.) newsletter feature or mass mailing to subscribers built in.

10.) Ability to add additional pages

11.) Ability to add advertising spaces on any new page created.

12.) The ability to choose where those advertising spaces go and the type, would be tremendously invaluable.

13.) The same with the option of including the entire world. Yes, indeed. This would be a grand slam product.

14.) Being visually appealing, is super important as well, of course.

On the note of #12, imagine if you added a new page which contains mainly text. It would be nice to be able to add a banner size ad space in the center of the page, and a several boxes on the right.

That’s about it Chief. If there was such a directory WP theme, then it would cover most needs for directories, as the buyer’s could customize it according to their clients needs, without having to either build it from the ground up for each project.

Hmm, I don’t know why, but the comment section is cutting off the rest of the list. I’ll try to add them a couple at a time. I didn’t see a limitation on strokes. Bizarre.
