I’d like to purchase your theme but before I do so, I’d like to ask a few questions.
- I want to use BitPay as well and be able to be paid with BTC. Is this easy to implement? Can you assist with it?
- Can I take a look in admin demo? I couldn’t find it if you got it.
Thank you in advance.
Hi, thanks for your message. Please see my comments below:
- Theme by default supports only Paypal payments, I’d suggesting hiring a web developer that will implement more payment gateways for you.
I have a database of ~6.500 business listings in ~ 10 categories.
How much server memory is needed in order for Directory theme to perform adequately, especially front page map with all the listings?
We’ve tested 17k listings on standard windows pc with 2gb or ram and it was running, but you’ll definitely need a better server if you’re expecting high traffic.
1) what kinda plan i can create? set time duration, featured listing, monthly member ship ?
2) User curent location ? for example if i am from New York then maps and homepage match and shows local listing
3) ability submit Events ?
4)Snippet rich Review data?
5) is it possible display recent or featured listing on Front page ?
6) get direction option ?
7)Bbpress suport ?
what the power of featured listing ? is it highlighted, always on top in category or front page ?
9) email notification support ? when the listing expired user get notification
Thanks for your message, please see my comments below:
2. Yes geolocation is supported.
3. Sorry this is not supported by default, but you can use a 3rd party plugin for events.
4. This is not supported by default.
5. This feature is not included.
6. Sorry this is not included.
7. You cannot run buddypress with this theme.
8. Featured listings are supported
9. No email notification.
Lot of nice and handy features are already included. You can take our theme as a good base and build on top of that to create your own unique portal.
Nice theme but missing important features to run listing directory website… i check the link that you share and still didnt get if it possible to set listing duration time to specific plan, for exampla $10 plan 10 days. $20 plan 30 days etc . What about if the user stops using our services, listing will be draft automatically or we have to do it manually ? are you offering customize for extra $ ?
If item expires it’ll be switched to draft. Unfortunately we don’t do any custom design or development work. Please contact a local web developer with this enquiry.
I am very interested in your site, but I have two questions to ask:
1. I was wondering if you can set an expiration date on a listing? For example, if a costumer lists an event at a certain location will it disappear once the event occurs?
2. Do listings allow for multiple pictures? And is there a way to offer a basic listing (free) and then a premium listing (paid for)?
Thanks for your time!
i want to buy theme for directory and business finder but what about the your theme SEO performance ? how templates are coded for SEO ? and what about the hole in templates for hackers ? before i bought 3 theme from this themeforest.net site and all my 3 sites hacked by competitors ))
can we trust your theme SEO and Security ? we will not add any plugins to site and only use what yout theme has because mainly holes are come from plugins.
Thanks for your message. We’ve developed the theme with SEO in mind, all our themes also work perfectly with YOAST SEO plugin that you can use. Regarding security I highly recommend using always the most up to date version of Wordpress as older versions have several security holes. There’s no problem in our theme code as we don’t use any problematic PHP functions.
I have one trouble that i can not solve until now.
The problem is, I can not show streetview because it shows only grey color when i ticked on show checkbox.
Could you please guide me how to put the stick figure correctly to show streetview correctly instead of map? My map is in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Your prompt feedback is very appreciated.

I want to buy this theme but before I do I have a quick question.
When I go on to the demo site – you can go to “submit listing” – on that page there is an option a free basic directory OR various paid and premium directories that can be bought.
My question is: Are there different template pages in the theme set up for people who register for a free basic directory and for people who pay for a directory page? Is it already built in to the theme that when someone buys 1 of the premium packages they get a different type of page to the basic free one? If so, how many different versions are there?
Also, if this is not built in, would it be hard to build it in to the theme so that I can provide different types of pages/directories for free and paying customers?
So you are saying that I can create a free package and create a template in the admin section outlining what the free package includes and then I can create a premium package in the admin section outlining it with more features?
How easy is this to do? I can’t see which pictures exactly in the gallery you linked me to show creating a package.
If this is all easy then I will definitely buy it!
You can select what fields will be available in each package. You can also style it a bit differently if you like. You can also extend item fields pretty easily, please check the following link for more details: http://www.ait-themes.com/doc/how-to-edit-custom-type/?theme=directory-wordpress-theme
How does the custom built search and filter work, I want to use this as a Real Estate directory with more filters like, bedrooms, baths, price range,
Will that work?
Thanks for your message. Theme includes only features that are presented on our demo site, everything else needs to be developed in.
Absolutely amazing theme. Bought it yesterday and have my site pretty much up and running already and Paypal integrated.
Thank you so much for the work that you and anyone else involved have put into this, it’s very much appreciated.
Thanks mate, good luck with your site
Would be helpful if you made a side by side comparison table between Directory & Businessfinder
Please check a business finder item detail page, there’s a list of additional features included. Directory theme has a bit less features.
Hi … is it possible to restrict number of categories and locations a person can select ?
We use standard Wordpress categories for that, you might find a 3rd party plugin for that. Theme does not include this feature by default.
I uploaded the theme but not sure why the images and the Category Icons / Map pins are not getting displayed.
May I know which forum plugin does your theme support? Thanks.
I haven’t tested any plugin but you might ask on our support forum.
I want to buy this but the only thing missing is auto geo location, is this possible or going to be possible? i notice there is an option but it asks for permission in the browser bar which people are not likely to click.
I notice there are other scripts like edirectory that do this automatically without permission, that going to be possible?
Automatic geo location is not possible by default, we use standard browser feature for that and that requires permission.
I like this theme. This is my pre-buy question.
I have tried Business finder and this theme, both them should come from the same developer.
Just a simple question, how to maintain the structure of the page in the smartphone. How to make the screen (at the cellphone screen) don’t automatic enlarge when user selects/clicks at the category or search keyword like business finder theme. You can try both (directory and business finder in cellphone version) then you know what i m trying to say. The text automatically enlarged when you click the Keyword or Category. Is it something to do with css? It should be an easy question. Please help..I m in the final stage to buy this theme.
You can disable searchable dropdown to standard dropdown and it won’t do it.
but both of them are the same…both are searchable dropdown…business finder theme would not change the display to become big (in cellphones it is hard to control…..directory theme yes…can enlighten me…tqtq..
It should be possible to fix it via css then. It might be that business finder theme was already fixed.
can you fix it for me when i buy it?
2nd question, the “homepage with geolocation” in the main menu at business finder theme, can you do it for me or is it already in the setting?...or can you fix it for me?...if yes, i will proceed to buy this theme…
I’ve just tried both sites in iPhone and search box works exactly the same way on both templates. Could you please send some pictures? What mobile phone do you have? Thanks.
I m using note 3..I have sent an email to ur profile email an video showing that…please let me know fast…Tqtq…if can solve…I would buy it today….
anyway..i bought it…please let me know what shld i amend to solve the problem…or any update css for me…tqtq
My email is email@example.com
I’d like to buy this theme if you could help me resolve one issue regarding the Vietnamees font I need to use. How can I try on this theme, or know what font you are using?
The Vietnamese fonts seems to display correctly on standard fonts such as Roman times, Helvetica, Helvatica Nouie. Otherwise, it will appear with some characters shown in bold when an accent is required.
Thanks for your message. You can change font in the css file, we can point you the right direction on our support forum.
When creating an ad, is that the filing of an image is limited or you can add more? (how many max?)
There are several ad spaces available. The code you put there will simply show on the website. You can include there adsense or other 3rd party advertising.
Thank you for your reply but I was not talking about advertising space.
I was talking about the picture that is on the page of an advertiser, for example: Home> Food> Fast Food> Art Restaurant. On this page there is a picture, is what we can put more as a gallery?
Sorry for misunderstanding. Directory theme supports by default only one image, but you can upload multiple images in business finder theme.
You can extend item fields pretty easily, please check the following link for more details: http://www.ait-themes.com/doc/how-to-edit-custom-type/?theme=directory-wordpress-theme
i have read http://www.ait-themes.com/doc/how-to-edit-custom-type/?theme=directory-documentation.
My pre-purchase questions:
1) If i add 2 custom fields, price and rental, would it shows in the package selection/account capabilites?
For certain category, can we specify which item should be shown? let say, real estate category, he/she would only be presented with price and rental and but not opening hours?
2) Also where do we specify time scale in the package? couldnt find it in your screenshoot.
3) Last question, if we add custom fields, can we still do CSV import/export (i will buy this add-on as well)?
1. Yes you can configure it that way.
2. It’s account expiration limit under “Accounts”
3. Yes, CSV import plugin detects this new custom field automatically.
Hello, I’d like to purchase your theme ,it is very nice, but before I do so, I’d like to ask some questions please:

2- can I do 2 kinds of registrations for personal and business?
3- Can my client see his profile when the login, and posiblity to has more than one companies and location?
Thank you in advance.
1. You can have your directory portal in multiple countries, that’s no problem.
2. You can create different packages that can users select. These can be free of charge or payable.
Use, by you or one client, in a single end product which end users are not charged for. The total price includes the item price and a buyer fee.
Why buy with Envato
