Just uploaded my new directory & listings theme, waiting for successful approval.
Its based on your web 2.0 plugin? So its a uiversal dir/classified/listing theme?

Quite right!

We took the best features of our Web 2.0 Directory plugin and added ability to customize and style theme layout. Here is the demo:

Hi everyone! I’m following this competition as I really in need of good and functional theme for real estate. One of the best themes let many people down because of huge lack of support but we are moving on and there is a great opportunity for all the talented developers win prizes! I know it is almost deadline but so far I’m really surprised why developers not making something more unique then other by functionality? Why not to look on most successful themes out on the Themeforest and take small bits of ideas to create even better one? I think any theme should be user friendly as much as possible. For example most of themes have a nice submission form with Google Map where you can type in the exact address and get your listing marked on the map. Why can’t anyone make make Google Places friendly search field so that user looking for listing will be able to locate it by typing in area (using Google Places suggestion). We are still using old fashioned meta data location fields where admin should type in dozens of locations and sub-locations before launching the website. Another tip is to use Openstreet maps (Leaflet.js) as an alternative to Google Maps. The reason for this is that Google Map API have limit number of calls and then you have to set up an account and pay for the visits. Openstreet map is free so far. (some people claim it’s also faster then Google). Another tip is payment getaways. I know there is a lot of payment geteways around the world but most of developers love to put PayPal as a payment getaway. To be honest with you I didn’t see many websites using PayPal only or using it at all. For the person who want to put advert/listing should be as much easier and safer as possible. Stripe (for US customers), Paymill (for EU) can be good alternatives. I also think Google Wallet has a great potential and will be spread around the world in the next years quickly. They have very good and easy interface for payments.

I know you are all working hard on themes but do not try to put as many features as possible, just try to make it simple as possible for the end user to use this theme. Also note that website data should load as quick as possible. I wish you all good luck!

So far there has been multiple Directory themes, however I havent seen any LISTINGS or CLASSIFIEDS themes so far. I know that some dont require ’’hard skills’’ to modify it to listings but anyway there hasnt been many for this niche of themes, let alone Car listing themes or any other more focused.

By the way, some themes fails hard when setting payment options. If its possible to set multiple plan packages for X number of ADS of X number of Days, that would be great for agents, dealerships, clothing stores to give them a special price to put multiple ads and monetize the site.

I already got some requests when this theme will be ready for purchase, but finally this was rejected without any detailed comments except usual reason “it did not meet our minimum requirements for quality and/or marketplace policies”

Hello Shamalli, quite frankly your theme needs some serious rework. Kindly read through this thread looking at comments from potential buyers and no doubt you will see why your theme was rejected. Not to be brutal here but it look and fees very dated. I only say this in the interests of you getting the approval you want in future. Good Luck!

Hi

Sorry to say but you are not a designer and its not a problem. No body can be anything… Your web 2.0 dir plugin its one of the bests in plugin category You need to find a designer to your business. Your plugin is feature rich so with a pro design it will be bombastic.

Please use openstreetmap with leaflet.js for maps in your plugin and theme also:)
