hi.. just the one question.
Can the pins be dragged into position? – ie they don’t rely on GPS location / postcode / address? – I want to use this in a country where there are no postcodes, and pretty much no addresses.
If the pins can be dragged.. then it works for me and i will buy
Yes sure, in the admin panel. Thanks.
The maps is no longer working.
Please update to the newest theme version.

I installed Directiry theme on my wordpress, all are fine. After that, I install VKontakte API plugin. This plugin allows use facebook and VKontakte (Russian social network) account in comments.
This plugin works fine with other default wordpress themes, but doesn’t with Directory theme – I didn’t see forms for facebook or VKontakte comments.
I suppose the reason is that Directory theme has not standard file structure and plugin can’t recognize it, but plugin doesn’t indicate any errors.
How to make VKontakte API plugin work with Directory wordpress theme?
Dear Sirs, my theme MAPS have disappeared after the update, kindly let us know why and how we can restore the maps asap? Thank you.
is it possible to add multi city support? (or is it already there?)
Some of the other themes im considering have this (wont mention the names).. this is the only deal breaker.
I want the user to be able to select their city.
I can make multiple sites for each city and use a sub directory, but it would be nice to have everything in one admin
is there a solution?
You can use the theme on multiple locations, that’s absolutely no problem. Map will zoom in/out automatically based on items you place on the map. You can even create a global portal. Thanks.
hi.. yes, but then all the results will be part of the same ‘map’ / interface.
What i am after is one website with the ability for separate maps/results that you can switch between depending on where you are located. For example if i had a site called “Swimming pool locations.com” the default location might be ‘new york’ (and the entire website is new york related), but because i live in Chicago I can use the drop down at the top of the page to switch to ‘Chicago’. All the results are then JUST Chicago (with no hint of anything from new york). With what you suggest the results for the 2 cities will be mixed together.
The themes ‘Geo Places’ or ‘GeoPlaces’ both have this feature for example. You select the location at the top of the page.
Can this be done / added?
You can browser items by location as well, please check the following url for more details: http://preview.ait-themes.com/directory/wp1/loc/new-york/
yeah.. but the blog entries, comments, latest new and static text all stay the same, no matter what location i select. If i want to do a site for each city for the sake of SEO i need all this to change..
Is there a way to do that without a multiple instal?
I think you might use Wordpress multisite for what you’re explaining. Thanks.
ok. i was looking into that.
i prefer your theme to the ones mentioned.. just this feature is missing
A front end registration is essential for a directory kind of website. Please include this feature in your future plan.
Since you are advising your customers to use a third party plugin to make the front end registration, why don’t you can create a plugin for that as you created for bulk import.
Hello, I have little experience with wordpress and want to know what I should do with every update of this theme? If I purchase your theme have to reinstall it every update or just add additional lines somewhere in the source code? Every update you explain what to do to update it? The theme comes with the file .Po translation?
I highly advise you to create a child theme and keep all your changes there. For more information regarding child themes please check the following url: http://www.ait-themes.com/doc/how-to-create-child-theme/?theme=faq
Okay, but let’s say I will not change the style of a page, changing only postings, ads side, everything you do, except for stylistic changes, will be maintained with each update of the theme? When you release an update as I do to update it? Answered questions I think I’ll buy the theme because my concern is only with the updates.
You can use versioning software for your updates, that’s the safest solution I guess. Have a look at GIT or SVN. Thanks.
Hello, your answer was vague, but I liked knowing the GIT. What you did not answer is if you tell what should be changed in the source code with each update, or tells you what must be done for the theme to be updated … Can you answer that?
We keep a track of all updated files in each version on our support forum. But in fact if you’ll be using versioning software you’ll find out changes yourself much quicker
Thanks. On August 20th I’ll be buying your theme. Wait.
The Stars for the Rating system disappear when I hover over them. It is showing up as being under a undefined directory.
Hello, I have a pre-sale question.
Are you using a common plugin for the directory (i.e. WP Directory Plugin) or is this a custom built application?
Thanks for your message. Theme uses it’s own functionality, we don’t use any plugin.
Hi, i have bought the theme. How do i use the revolution slider on my homepage ?
Dammm. I wish your theme had some of the extra things that Geo Places has. I would buy it for sure!! – its so much nicer looking. Also like that you have the ‘my location’ button (although it is REALLY well hidden). I need a strong theme for a lot of websites i want to build.
Please consider this -id really like to roll out with Directory..
-The listings preview in Geo Places is so much more rich. you see lots of information before reading the full post. They also aren’t full page width so you see more without scrolling.
-On the GP map your can directly turn off things you dont want to see – on the map.. on Directory i have to use the navigation below – so i cant see the map at the same time.
-The other theme lets owners of locations ‘claim the listing’ – basically i can add the listings, and then the business owners can claim them to pay and complete the information. This is an amazing feature for an empty site!
- they have ‘add event’ – this is great for getting extra traffic to the site, and the events show with a calendar and extra options.
- inside the post they have related places. also has ‘whats near’ to the one your looking at.
Basically love the design, and graphics. just wish you had all the functionality the others do.
Maybe in future release?
Thanks for the message. We plan to add in claim listing for sure. I’ve written down other requests, we might add them in in the future. Cheers.
ok. thanks. I might buy to see if i can modify some of it in a child theme..
The killer functionality on your theme is the “Search around my position” button. Its so well hidden though. I showed 4 people your demo and not one spotted it under the cog icon. You should have the option to put it on an overlay over the map (- not under the cog, and with toggles to show / hide the categories). This button makes it very useful on a mobile phone. – The only bug for me is that the minimum 5km radius is to big – 1km would be better for city centres and people walking around (and a zoom to street level – i guess that is easy to modify though).
love the look of the theme.
ok. im gonna buy both this and Geo Places and play with both.
Thanks – appreciate looking at all these queries must be a bit tedious
You can change the radius and also reposition the button wherever you want. Take our theme as a good base for your own unique project and develop on top of that. Child theme is a brilliant idea. Thanks.
i am having an issue with a plugin and in the support it say to check that the theme has a call to wp_footer() in footer.php which this theme does not. how can i include this?
Is there a way to bulk import city or do you have to manually enter it?
You can import categories=locations using our CSV to Wordpress import plugin we developed. Thanks.
Can you give us a estimate on the “claim post” and “monthly subscription” update?
We’d like to release it till the end of the month. Thanks.
Is it possible to use other payment gateways?
Other then PayPal?
Sorry theme currently only supports Paypal payments. Thanks.
How do you add a sidebar to the home page the same way you have it on the demo site?
We have a full width homepage but can’t seem to add the sidebar to it.
Pre Purchase Question
1. Can you limit the number of business listings per search?
2. Can you randomly display only a few listings for each search?
Example you have 12 bakeries in New York but you only display 3 with each search query and give everyone equal impressions over time?
1. Yes that’s possible.
2. Listings are always ordered by some parameter, they cannot be displayed randomly by default.
Is there an option to add adsense ads for googlemaps?
Sorry there’s no option for that.
