Hi, my current directory website is build with Mosets Tree on Joomla, is there a direct method to migrate it to a wordpress built with your theme?
Thanks for your message. We’ve developed an Import plugin that you can use to import date from CSV file to our theme.
I’ve got a few presale questions:
1. Do you offer paid customization service for your themes?
2. Is it possible to insert blog posts between the opening hours and comment section on individual items ( e.g. item/play-golf-2/ )
3. Is it possible to have a blog on the homepage instead of the category explanation as you did in the demo?
4. Is it much coding to customize the fields in “our address” (paid customization service?!)
Hi Johann, thanks for your message. Please see my answers below:
1. Sorry we don’t provide any custom design or development work, please contact a local web designer with this enquiry.
2. There’s a blog posts shortcode, you can use shortcodes on item page as well.
3. Yes that’s possible.
4. 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
Hello, great looking theme. One very important feature I need but don’t see is the ability to sort searched locations by distance of miles from the visitors location. Does this feature exist? If not, how much extra to add?
Theme supports Geolocate feature, you can test it on the following url: http://preview.ait-themes.com/directory/wp1/homepage-with-geolocate/
Sorry, maybe my question was not clear. The geolocation is great, but not what I am referring to. What I am asking is can you add a field in the search bar that asks for “YOUR ZIP CODE or “LOCATION”.” Then, after your zip code is entered you will see a list of locations based on the distance from the zip code you entered as well as the approximate distance. I understand that your theme currently does not have this feature. What I’m asking is if you can add this feature custom and how much would it cost? This script is an example of what I am talking about – http://superstorefinder.net/products/superstorefinder/
Unfortunately we don’t do any custom design or development work. Please contact a local web developer with this enquiry. Thanks.
Do you have a referral?
Sorry we don’t work with any external company. Thanks.
Dear Prospective Purchaser,
If you are buying this theme for businesses to add their own listings, you will find it uses the standard WP interface (which most people are not familiar with) and is thoroughly confusing. After registration, users have to click an email link and log in to WP, when they land on the Profile page …. they then have to GUESS that they must “Add Item” to add their listing. When they do so, they are presenting with a Custom Post page, from which they can view other listers media files AND select multiple categories for their listing. The whole thing is messy and confusing.
I started a thread on the AIT support forum: they have yet to comment on it, but I can confirm they have MANY unsatisfied customers trying to use this theme.
This theme is pretty, but the missing 10% of functionality renders it almost useless (unless you plan on adding all businesses yourself or have a data entry team).
Much of what I have mention above can be seen in detail on p63 of these Comments.
AIT’s response is arrogant and dismissive, and in the face of a growing dissatisfaction on their own Support Forum.
This is how they’ve left it atm;
“Sorry we don’t plan to implement frontend admin. It’s a Wordpress theme and we need to keep Wordpress functionality as much as possible. We did listing administration “Wordpress way”. What’s the point of making another admin panel inside the Wordpress theme? We could make it a standalone software instead, it would be also much easier than fighting around Wordpress.”
AIT, HOW is it possible that APPTHEMES manage to integrate a decent system with their Classified and Vantage Themes??
AIT go on to say,
“If you don’t like and don’t appreciate all the work we’ve done please contact Envato support and ask for a refund. You paid $55 for design, PSDs, all the code and fully working theme. You can always hire a developer to amend it to your needs. I bet you’ll spend more than $55 for that.”
What I don’t like, is paying $55 for something that is next to useless, despite “all the work” you’ve put into it.
I shall be REQUESTING A REFUND and would advise anyone to UNDERSTAND THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS THEME before parting with their cash.
The 4* rating for this theme probably exists because people vote BEFORE they discover the limitations.
HI I use directory in french version
But i find where translate new module NEW: Ability to contact listing owner via website
Because not translate with po file and WPML
I prefer use manuel traduction by WPML
Awesome Theme, great work!
I do want to know the major differences between this and the upcoming Tour Operator theme.
Is Tour Operator just a major udpated Directory with tons of additional features like ecommerce, and allowing guests the ability to sell items right on the page?
Thanks for any insight as I like both the themes but only need one!
Keep up the great work!
Tour Operator is more focused on hospitality sector or businesses where you need a reservation. It will include all features of Directory theme in the future with additional tons of new features. Thanks.
Thanks for the swift reply.
Do you have a release date on Tour Operator yet? I have seen the documentation up already and want to check out the live demo compared to Directory. It may be that I just need the funtionality of Directory, but inthe future I can see the additional options available with Tour Operator could be needed. Any links to a live demo of Tour Operator?
Tour Operator should be ready next week, you might wait couple of days. Thanks.
Can I add a images gallery/sliders to a listing? Or is it only one picture for a listing?
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
Thank you! Can I add the picture gallery in a listing? Or is this a page template?
You can use any shortcode in item listing, including gallery.
Directory changelogs (latest 2.16)???
Ivo will write a sum up on the support forum. Thanks.
Surely a featured listing option is a standard feature with even the most basic directories. All my plans for my directory have been shot down within the first 5 mins of installing.
You have packages even now. Each package has a special class added into it’s div. You can style them as you wish. We will be also adding in item sorting by package in the next big update. Thanks.
This is a nice theme – BUT the support hasn’t been very helpful and it is QUITE cumbersome to make any major edits to – like removing the header image or map option from the directory listing page. It’s next to impossible to use this theme if you do NOT want that feature for all of your listings.
Is it possible to have the directory set up so that the admin only can add listings…. ie forms with request listing goes to admin who adds them … no need for payment module, etc…
Is this possible…
and can I add in other pages, ie about us, etc… etc…
Hi Steve, you can disable online registration form and set up static form that will go to admin via email for example. Directory is also a standard theme with CMS functionality. You can create pages there and so on. Thanks.
Hi. I can translate the website to complete without plugins? manually? is hard to do?
You can translate the website to any language using PO files. I also recommend you WPML plugin if you want to run you website in multiple languages. Thanks.
Hello, when will you plan to implement the frontend registration (without using the word press backend), it is difficult to wait any longer – my customer is angry. Or is there a work-around or a wizard which we can implement?
Users can register via front end, they then have to log in to wordpress backend to administer their items. There won’t be a frontend administration. Thanks.
@stevecartwright … Your intended method of use is really the best way of using this theme. Many of us bought it believing that businesses would be able to create their own listings, allowing it to grow virally, but the implementation is appalling, requiring businesses owners to understand the WP Admin Panel and then ‘guess’ that they need to “Add New Item” in order to create their listing.
I have a thread on the AIT Support Forum that has been running for 5 days and NO reply there from AIT.
For anyone interested, here is one of the recent posts from another purchaser on that thread;
“Major disappointment. I spent over $600.00 with a developer trying to get this theme to work the way it should, and and now Im stuck with it. Im not only disappointed, Im angry as well.
My feeling is that the developers have abandoned this theme, and all of us too.”
This ‘book’ should not be judged by its ‘cover’ ....
When I translate with youre process http://www.ait-themes.com/doc/how-can-i-edit-po-translation-files/?theme=faq

Can u help me?

Please post more details to our support forum, e.g. what PHP version are you using and so on.
Do I download the new version here?
You can download the newest theme version from themeforest. Please navigate to Downloads tab.
Thanks for your response, but thats no answer to my questions:
a) Are you planning to implement frontend-registration, and when?
b) If not, is there a wordpress wizard we can modify?
Sorry we don’t plan frontend item administration. Users have to log in to the backend to administer their items. Thanks.
There are questions:
Will there be an official response to a review of the the place?
Will there be a widget that displays nearby locations on a page item?
Sorry these features are not planned. Thanks.
