Hello,

I have a few pre-sale questions & hopefully you can provide some answers.

1. Are there any other primary plugins needed to fully setup a local directory?

2. How does the method mentioned compare to some of the plugins at CodeCanyon/ThemeForest that include directory setup within Wordpress, I realize this is a general question, but I need some guidance to understand more about how your plugin works compared to others?

3. Does your plugin work with all themes like from ThemeForest or can you recommend a group of themes related to local directory setup?

4. How difficult for someone with no prior Wordpress experience to setup the theme, and all the plugins including yours for a fully functional site?

5. Final question, I promise (unless I have follow up questions later). After the site is fully finished, I will need to import ALL the model data, each model will need their own profile page and their specs. Can this be done with the import plugin for all the specs, height, weight, hair color, etc?

Thanks in advance for bearing with me while I inquire about so many detailed questions.

Look forward to hearing back from you soon.

Regards,

Steve

Hi Steve,

Thank you for your message. Please see my comments below:

1. You basically don’t need any additional plugins to run a portal, but you can extend the default functionality with few our extension plugins or icons: http://themeforest.net/collections/4386915-best-directory-wordpress-themes

2. With Business Finder or our Directory theme you’ll get all you need to run your directory portal website. It’s hard to answer to that question but for example we’re already working on huge update for Directory theme called Directory+ that will include almost all requests from our existing customers.

3. Functionality is built into the theme, you cannot use it with other themes.

4. If you follow our documentation you can set it up no problem, you can also order our service and we’ll install the theme for you. We won’t do any customizations though due to capacity reasons.

5. We’ve developed CSV to WP import script that will allow you to bulk import your data. Please check the following url for more details: http://codecanyon.net/item/csv-to-wordpress-import-plugin/4829224?ref=ait This is a general plugin to import locations/categories/items, it probably won’t import all details as you mentioned.

Hi, i’m getting an php error message on my site. And I cant update the theme via Envato Plugin… I saw you had an important security fix recently. Can you guide me through that if its related?

Hi, We’re currently working on big update for our Directory theme, if this will go well we’ll also update Business Finder theme. We haven’t planned user profiles yet. Feel free to send me a private message with an idea what you have in mind. Thanks.

DO you mean that business finer theme, is better than the directory theme, please specify as I do not know which one to purchase?

Currently Business Finder theme includes more features than Directory theme. We’re currently working on big update, Directory+ will include many many new features than old Directory or Business Finder themes. I’d go for Directory theme, theme will also receive fresh looking facelift :)

Hi, Is it possible to add more search filters to this theme ? Like I want to develop a portal where we will be listing business with annual turn over and suppose at the front end we want a search filter as turnover range, can we achieve this easily?

what is the flexibility of search filter?

Can we add or modify more search options to the directory ?

Hi, Sorry this feature is not implemented in this theme.

Hi,

I am interested in buying this script. It is translated to spanish? Does it have a .PO file so I can translate it? Can you add payment gateway MERCADOPAGO.COM for unique an recurring payments? Wchch would be the cost to add this option? Thanks, Francisco

ait

Hi, Thank you for your message. Theme supports WPML plugin, you can create a multilingual website. English PO file is included. Paypal Recurring payments are supported.

Have a look also at our Directory theme, we plan a big update Directory+ which will include many many new features and translated admin into 26 languages as an option.

Regarding customizations, sorry we don’t do it due to capacity reasons. Please contact a local web designer with this enquiry.

Don’t buy this theme.

  • Security flaws in it resulted in my WP installation hacked 3 times. Always up to date, both core and the theme. No additional installed plugins.
  • They won’t fix a bug I reported (unescaped truncated strings with markup that break entire site’s layout)
  • Easy Admin, the part where your customers are supposed to manage their items, is not fully translatable, despite their claims of 100% translatable.
  • It’s NOT trully responsive. It just has 2 breakpoints with fixed widths. Also with Windows Phone’s Internet Explorer it’s basically unusable.
  • And the most annoying one, they will release a new theme that does the same thing as the one you purchased, instead of fixing and updating it. Before “Business finder”, it was “Directory” and they already have a new one, “City guide”, only in their website.
Hope it saves some headaches to someone.

Hi, Thank you for your message. Please see my comments below:

1. There was never any issue with theme code. The known issue was in bundled 3rd party plugins, this was also explained on official Envato blogs: http://marketblog.envato.com/news/wordpress-item-security-vulnerability/ http://marketblog.envato.com/news/plugin-vulnerability/

2. If you found any issue please post them to our support forum. If there’s a problem in our theme we release an update asap as we always do with all our themes.

3. Please post more details to our support forum, if there’s an issue we have a look at it and fix in upcoming releases.

4. Theme was designed several years back with 2 breakpoints.

5. Directory, Business Finder and City Guide themes have different design and different functionality. We’re currently working on big free update for Directory theme called Directory+. This update will be available free of charge for all Directory customers. If this will go well we’ll also completely update Business Finder theme.

1. Right after I installed the theme, I disabled the Revolution Slider plugin, because I don’t use it and I knew it had security issues. As I said, I don’t have any additional plugins installed, apart from Wordfence, which I installed after the first time I got hacked. I also maintain arround 10 more WP installations with other themes and plenty of plugins and never had an issue with them, only with the Bussiness finder installation. So the conclusion is clear to me.

2. I posted it: http://support.ait-themes.com/support/topic/102365. I even posted screenshots showing the problem. The answer was “We are not going to do any changes. It can make problems to other users.”. To me, that’s not an acceptable answer to an obvious layout-breaking bug.

3. Multiple users posted this issue (http://support.ait-themes.com/support/topic/11159, http://support.ait-themes.com/support/topic/86225, you can find more searching for “easy” in the forum). General answer is “not possible”, yet you still claim “you can translate your website to any language”. I consider the Easy Admin interface part of my site, specially because paying users (the most important ones) use it.

4. Having 2 breakpoints isn’t that bad. What’s bad is that then you use fixed widths for both of them, so if the device has different screen resolution, horizontal scroll is needed. Also, there’s javascript code that detects if the client is Android or iPhone/iPad, and only then “responsive” things happen. I won’t even start explaining how bad both practices are.

5. Design is different, functionality is the same. Your updating claims are welcome if true, but the only real updates I’ve seen so far are the “Directory Extension” and “Directory Directions” plugins, which you have to pay extra to get, so I take your claims with a grain of salt. You can add to that the amount of unfulfilled fixes/updates claims in your support forum.

As final words, please note that I’m a developer myself that “inherited” a project with the “Directory” theme that then was switched to “Bussines Finder”. I understand you want to get paid for your work and don’t blame you, just wanted to tell people what they get for the price. My client’s website is targeted to mobile users, so only the time I spent adding LESS code to improve the theme’s “responsiveness” was a lot more than the theme’s worth. Oh, and I had to do it in a textarea (a javascript CSS/LESS syntax highlighting library would be nice in there).

How do you change the mapping default from kilometers to miles?

Hello!


I have a few pre-purchase questions:
1) With this theme, can an organic visitor register to be listed in the directory? ( I don’t think I saw the registration interface in your demo and the screenshots you provided)
2) If so, does their info get funneled somewhere where the admin can approve or not approve them?
3) If they can be listed, does the admin have to re-enter their info under Items?
4) Do they have to have an address listed or is it possible to just keep the Item Locations checked off for them?
5) I saw that this is only available in km and not in miles and saw that it can be changed in the coding, is this something your support team can help me with once I purchase this theme?

Thank you!

Hi, Thank you for your message. Please see my comments below:

1. Yes uses can register, select free or payable package and then administer their listings.

2. Eash new listing item needs to be approved by administrator.

3. No, admin does not need to reenter any information, just click approve.

4. Admin has full control over locations, you can administer them in the admin panel.

5. There are some guides on our support forum. If you need the theme in miles I’d suggest you our Directory theme. We plan a big free update called Directory+ which will include admin option to switch between miles and km.

Hi, I can’t seem to find the option to make the blog posts show excerpts instead of the full post.

Hello. I want to apologize first and foremost to my many questions, but before buying your theme, I need more answers to be able to adapt my project. Moreover, I am the founder of a website on the topics and I would like to present your own. So thank you to answer as precisely as possible. Thank you a lot! :)

General questions:

1) Responsive (fits all screens)?

2) IPhone and Android possible?

3) Is the website d├ęclinable in multiple languages? Not to mention adding a plugin, is that this feature is planned (in “native” ie default)

4) The site does offer the functionality to display a map with ads on the home page? Is it possible to configure the card (this on the home page) so that, by default, it has for example only France and not the world?

Webmaster (Administrator):

5) I suppose that there are predefined fields for the ads (name, address …) but is it possible to customize 100% the fields ads?

6) I suppose that there are predefined categories for ads but is it possible to customize 100% the categories?

7) I suppose there are drawings (pellets) for categories but is it possible to customize these designs 100% (pellets)?

8) Is it possible that the ads are manually validated by the site administrator for verification before being visible on the site?

Professionals: who can create ads (advertisers):

9) When the seizure Professional (writes) its announcement, how it will be presented the categories? By combo?

10) When the seizure Professional (writes) his announcement with all fields (name, surname …), will he can choose whether he wants to make public (present on the ad or not)?

11) When the seizure Professional (writes) its announcement, is it possible for him, in addition to its specific address, you can enter a range (100 kilometers of my home? Entire France? ....). Why not imagine a slider from 5 to 1000km for example that the provider may set?

12) When the seizure Professional (writes) its announcement, how many pictures can put a professional on his announcement?

13) When the seizure Professional (writes) its announcement, is it possible for him to subscribe for paying options? If so, which: adding more photos? Before implementation on the home page and / or the card? Flashing sticker on the map? Other?

14) If however pay options are managed by the site, he will be possible for the professional to take them afterwards and not to the creation of its announcement (after posting his ad)? On the same principle, he may terminate them later from his account?

15) Is it possible for the professional to create and manage multiple ads?

Visitors (potential customers):

16) Is it possible to imagine a link on all ads to report abuse (ad should be removed as not complying with the conditions of use)

17) When a visitor searches on the home page, is it possible for him to view (on the map and / or a list under the map, for example) professionals able to meet his needs (even if the professional lives far from home but he agrees to move / related question 10 where the provider may return a radius of action that is how far he would be able to move)

18) Is it possible to remove the rating system?

19) Is there a geolocation system to open the home page the visitor allowing it to be immediately geolocated (localized) on the map when he arrived on the site?

20) Can visitors see ads or create an account?

21) Are there plans for visitors to create an account? If so, what is it for?

Again thank you in advance and sorry for all these questions … Being French, I did everything for the translation to be the best but I am at your disposal for any further information. Thank you a lot. Kind regards,

Hi, I posted a comment on your support site a week ago, and have not received a response. It’s about the theme’s original style sheet ruling over the Custom CSS I placed within the admin panel.

I’m disappointed it’s taken this long, and if I don’t hear back soon I will have to write a negative review of this theme.

Thanks for your message. I’ve forwarded it to our support staff, they’ll have a look at your questions soon.

Thanks, someone did respond, but they gave a canned response. It appears that the person who responded did not read my original support issue thoroughly.

Unfortunately, the issue appears to be a theme problem, and not a customization issue.
