Same question as treetor…I’ve seen that you’ve said the claims were coming soon. As soon as those are added, you have a definite sale…
We started working on big update for Directory theme this week. I think we’ll be able to release everything next week. Thanks.
Great to hear. And happy to see how quickly you are responding to feature requests.
Hey this is a great theme.
But I have been waiting for you to release the new updates such as the reoccurring payments which I need.
Any chance you could let me know when i should expect this update?
Please update this great theme the reoccurring payments is a must have key feature.
OK sounds great, I’m looking forward to it – Good work!
I want to show you my finished website ( http://www.descomptes.org ) It’s been three large months working on it, to leave it as it’s now, but it’s finished! I paid 55$ that maybe I’m gonna get back with the first business who wants to be listed there, so, for me it’s a very very cheap price this 55$.
I gave them 5 stars, because they work hard with the theme, and to answer all our questions.
The only thing I missed about them is to do personal customization, so I did it all myself. If somebody need a customization, they can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and talk about what you want, if possible or not, and about how much to pay for them.
Please feel free to enjoy my site, tell me the good and bad things, make me the questions you need and good luck with your websites/business!
Hug from Barcelona,
Thanks for your message Alex, enjoy your site
Yeah I’m waiting for those updates too especially the reoccurring payments, hope it doesn’t take long or ill probably just buy another directory theme.

Sorry to hear that. We work Monday to Friday only usually during office hours. We’re based on Europe, CET time applies. I can see that Peter has already answered your question. Thanks.
If no front-end submission it does not work for me. I will look for others templates such us vantage.
Please let me know if you modify the theme I will buy it since its very nice but a directory without a front-end submission is not useful.
Besides, if your demo shows icons, graphics and things like those, you should include them in the package or make a big advise warning this circumtance.
Thanks for your message. Please check our theme Business Finder, it includes Easy admin that’s easy for users to use. Icons used on our theme are included in the package. Other images are proprietary and we cannot resell them.
Why has Ait released skins for many of it’s other themes but not for directory?
A big draw for your theme is the support and the skins on http://www.ait-themes.com/free-skins/
Thanks for your message. It’s actually nice to read that someone is interested in our skins We abandoned that as we thought no one is interested in it. You can still use skins section to build your own skins if you like.
I am still not sure what you mean by you thought no one was interested.
You’ve sold 6260 copies of this theme and have no skins to offer
you offer skins for Creator and only sold 597 of that theme
you offer skins for Halfscreen and only sold 485 of that theme
in fact I think you’ve sold more of this theme than all the other themes that you do offer skins for combined. I for one assumed that you would be following suit since skins is a big feature of this theme.
You can configure colors and everything in appearance section in our theme, you don’t need to use skins in this theme. Thanks.
Hello ait . You have very nice WP theme, its great. I want to buy it but before that i have questions
1, I want to make a Hospital directory for my city (Dhaka , Bangladesh) , where i want to add post/address under some category like area, specialty , service, etc also there will be some category like blood bank, doctor chamber, 24×7 medicine shop, medical college etc. And i want to show some selected category icon on the map, Not all category icon on the main map. is it possible by using your theme? (Its more important)
2. I want to add the icon with different size. like free listing will get small icon but the paid will be a quite bigger then free.
3. Do your theme support any shortcut for feed for category or feed for tag?
4. How do you add a correct location ? by GPS position or by selecting the position manually when a new post/address is added.
Please answer all my question. Thanks in advance.
Hi, thanks for your message. Please see my answers below:
1. Map is currently showing all categories, not only selected ones, but it shouldn’t be that difficult to change that functionality.
2. Icons are connected with categories, you can upload different icons to different category.
3. Sorry this is not implemented.
4. You can put gps manually or find gps using address. You can also click on the map to read the position.
I asked this question in your support forum but it seems to have been deleted…. At the moment the only person that can add directory items in the backend is the main administrator, can you tell me how I enable the editor profile to add in and administer directory items
I find it strange that the editor profile cannot do this, hope you can help….
I found your question on our support forum and forwarded to our developers. They’ll get back to you seen. Thanks.
I’ve been spending a lot of time lately comparing different directory wordpress themes and I’m almost at the point of buying this one because I think it has the best options.
There’s just one thing that’s not really clear for me yet.
Per item you can select multiple categories like Food, Universities etc. which even have their own description details.
My question is, how do you select/enter the location(s) per item (the first dropdown in the search box)? Is that done automatically by the Geo location you enter per item? Or are those locations also categories which can have their own descriptions?
My client would like to have a general text and images per location. For example if you select ‘Jersey City’ in the 1st search dropdown, there would be an intro text about Jersey City first, and then the list with items in that area. Is this possible with this theme?
Thanks for your time!
Thanks for your message. Locations are treated as categories, you can specify locations tree and then simply select multiple locations using checkboxes.
You can also extend locations with fields for description and display on location specific page. We an point you the right direction on our support forum. Thanks.
Hi guys. GREAT template, thanks
This may be a silly question, but what is the function of the included defaultslider-export-slider.txt file? Does it needs to be imported “as-is” for default slider layout? Please advice.
Thanks and regards, MJG
You can import example slider to Revolution slider if you like. You don’t need to do it though
Anyone else kinda annoyed that a new theme has been brought out but we are still waiting for the current Directory Theme to have both re-occuring paypal payments and also easy admin for customers to administer their listings?
Thanks for the message. Please let me explain the reason.
We had to release Business Directory theme because Themeforest has changed theme submission requirements: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/472
We started working on that new design some time ago and we planned to release it after recurring payments and claim listing. Because we had to release all themes that were in progress before 9th of September, updates to Directory theme were postponed.
We plan to release a nice update to all Directory theme buyers today, keep tuned
Thanks for the reply.. I really like the look of the newer theme. Nice update hey? Sounds good to me. Again, appreciate your reply.
Sorry to say, but I will never purchase another AIT theme again. You have the lousiest customer support I have ever seen on ThemeForest. If you are going to sell themes to people outside your time zone, then Monday – Friday YOUR time doesn’t cut it. You should have someone else working the time you obviously demand to have off. When more and more people stop buying your themes, that might help you wake up and realize that weekends exist and customers need help on those days too.
Thanks for the message. We have two more support guys on board now. We will be offering support over weekends as soon they get trained.
is possible to display a result in google street view mode ?
Sorry this is not possible. Thanks.
I recently installed Events manager on my Directory theme. But there have been a lot of CSS conflicts with that. I have been able to fix some of them, but some of them still remains.
1) Footer sizes on Events page conflicts. And it happens with only Single-events page footers. They shrink. For instance:
2) As you see above, Map is loading forever on Events page. I was told that there is a conflict with Directory Themes Map scripts. Anyway to solve this?
3) This is another issue only related to the theme. When accessed on mobile phone, Two column shortcodes on Full width are not responsive. Image sizes cross borders (even if they are small on desktop view), and texts also do the same. For instance:
I’m happy to announce a big update for Directory theme that we’d like to release to all existing and new customers for free.
We’ve developed a great new feature called Easy admin. This feature is coming to Directory theme for FREE to all new and existing customers. Easy admin allows users to administer their listings and ratings via frontend-like administration. Easy admin is a simplified and nicely designed Wordpress backend interface without any unnecessary bits and pieces. Please check a gallery on the following url for more details: http://preview.ait-themes.com/directory/wp1/theme-features/easy-admin/
Business Finder theme compatibility
As you probably noticed, we have recently released a new directory theme called Business Finder. This theme has a completely different design and new additional features. This new theme is fully compatible with Directory theme and you can easily switch to it without loosing your items or categories.
Why we released Business Finder theme
We started working on that new design some time ago and we planned to release it after recurring payments and claim listing. In the meantime Themeforest has changed theme submission requirements: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/472 and therefore we had to release all themes that were in progress before 9th of September, for that reason updates to Directory theme were postponed.
Planed updates to Directory theme
We plan to extend Directory theme and add in 2 new features there – Paypal recurring payments and Claim listing feature. We already started working on these features and both features will be available soon as FREE update for all new and existing customers. Both recurring payments and claim listing will be also available in Business Finder theme.
Thank you all for your purchase, enjoy your sites
I am dissapointed about your update philosophie! I bought directory 2 weeks ago… now youre pushing a new theme online instead of an update with the features for the directory… in my mind its is a bad way of getting more money… now i have to buy the other theme because i want the features… the whole thing has a really bad taste and i think about dont working together with ait anymore… the new theme is the directory theme with the ideas from the community! it would be fair if you have all the features in both themes… because now all the early adopters are the idiots!
sorry for my bad words but i am really disapointed… everything starts perfectly but now…
Thanks for your message. We’ve just released a Directory version 3.0 which includes Easy Admin that came from the community. Business Finder theme is a different design with few additional features. Sorry I don’t see the reason why we should update all our themes with all the functionality we’ll ever invent in the future.
I think with this step you lost a Lot of customers…recent items, New items and the other Features are a must have… You are milking the Money cow… Sorry but what is the Solution for customers Thatcher already bought directory? Am i right that they have to Pay the Full Price for a Few Features? Can i Switch to the New theme?
Sorry it’s just like all other themes we have, they evolve in time. Unfortunately we don’t get any money for free updates nor free support we’re doing – Envato doesn’t have any system in place for that. We need to develop new themes in order to keep the ball rolling.
Business Finder is a new theme with new additional features like all our other business themes come with something new comparing to older business themes.
I can understand that it has something to do with themeforrest but you know about the New features and theme die Weeks. A simple Note in the directory theme that a better theme with better features comes Out shortly would help everybody. Now your Supportes are the idiots because they have to pay 2 Times. Sorry but im very disapointed. Bad Bad Situation.
Sorry for that. We currently work on several other themes but I don’t think I would tell you more details about them simply because of the following reasons:
1. Everything is under development and we can still change it
2. I’m not really sure if telling what we plan to our competitors is a good idea
Thanks for understanding.
Directory v3.0 says “Compatible with Business Finder” and I have seen that it means I can switch between themes.
1) Can I easily migrate existing Custom Types from Directory to Business Finder?
2) Does Business Finder have recurring PayPal payments?
3) Does Business Finder allow us to add custom types to different packages?
4) Does Business Finder have Claim Listing already?
Hi, please see my answers below:
1. Yes, simply activate Business Finder theme and all your items/locations/categories are there already.
2. No, this feature is not implemented yet in any our theme, it’ll go to both Directory and Business Finder.
3. Yes, the same like with Directory theme, you can extend item fields easily
4. Same as #2
Thanks for the quick reply but I think I didn’t explain #3 very well.
In Directory theme I have created additional custom types e.g. Business Awards, Facebook ID, Twitter ID, Instagram etc but there is no way to add them to a specific package so that only customers who have bought the specific package have access to those fields.
Does Business Finder have this ability to associate custom types with packages?
Sorry I didn’t understand your question correctly. If you made any changes directly into to Directory theme code, these changes won’t be available in Business Finder theme for an obvious reason. Thanks.
Lol, yes I realise that. But if I create custom types in Business Finder, can I associate the new custom types to specific packages?
Not by default, packages only control item fields, not theme custom types.
Ahh OK, fair enough. However Business Finder seems to have all my custom types as native fields. So in Business Finder, will I be able to choose which packages can add Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc?
You can only enable/disable all social icons, not one by one.
I have checked the Enable Easy Admin For Registered Clients box in Accounts and logged in but I’m not able to see how to access the Easy Admin frontend-like page.
I have searched the documentation in the download and that doesn’t seem to have been updated?
I created a new account and tried and the error was
“Access Denied. Your site administrator has blocked your access to the WordPress back-office.”
What am I missing?
Please post more details to our support forum, our developer will have a look at it and if there’s a bug we’ll fix it asap. Thanks.
I’m trying on a local webserver (the same one that I built the live site for our Directory theme site) so I can’t show you.
Here’s what I’ve done.
- I have applied v3.0 theme
- I have checked the box to Enable Easy Admin
- I log in as a user and click Items but I see the previous admin interface for users (should I be going somewhere else?)
- So I created a new user
- Attempted to login as new user and get that error message
WP3.6, Directory 3.0 on MAMP server
Apache 2.2.22, MySQL 5.6, PHP 5.3.15
It’s not urgent for me as I tried it on a test site. I will wait for it to be a bit more stable, just thought I’d let you know
when you will fix a very big bug : search doesnt work in item page!!
how can you sell it with this bug?
Sorry I can see it’s working on our demo site. Please post more details to our support forum, our developers will have at your site. Thanks.
