It seems there is not a single good directory WordPress theme in existence on ThemeForest. Anyone have plans to create one? A clean design with options for payment and you’d have a top seller on your hands! Ping me if you want more suggestions.

I believe that the days of directories sites are behind us … I hope that someone who will make such a theme won’t prove me being wrong with huge sales of that theme … ;).

i’m not sure it’s behind us, it’s just a matter of doing it well, giving a real interest to those who will subscribe. Sometimes it’s complicated or too long to get listed in yellow pages or google places, or too expensive… that could work depending on the aim of the project. And i just bought a theme doing all that but not on TF.

You have a point, corsonr. But, what I had in mind was general yellow pages that overwhelmed internet some years ago. As the matter of the fact we did local project for not so broad purpose – tourism and hospitality WP directory theme with membership couple of years ago. But, it was too specifically customized to be adapted for Themeforest. At least, I believe so … :)

it’s maybe old fashioned but i think there are still clients for this kind of business, and if you have a well targeted market you can earn money with a directory based website.
