I hope every thing is well, i see you improve new design , i did buy it but i still wait for the WP.
could you tell me when please we can buy WP METRODIR – Directory , i think it’s better than Glocal form the layout and color.
Hi, just replied to the same question above (please refer to Oreeko’s reply)
To be honnest i’m personally not a big fanof metro design but was willing to take the challenge and create a metro directory so i guess its a matter of taste, i’m gladto know you like it :}
just to inform you that METRODIR has been approved yesterday night and is now available here:
just checking if it’s possible to have an estimate time of when you think you’ll release MetroDir. Not to put any pressure but just to understand how long to expect.
Hi, the dev mailed metodayhetold me he’s done he just needs a couple of tips from the lead dev to integrate a function from company tabs so we’re really almost there , im following up on a daily basis and we need to get it right, so i really hope we can publish it this week (im waiting from the dev of glocal toinstall custom sidebar so that we can reuse it for metrodir)
Sorrybuys for keeping you waiting its really almost there
Thanks for your patience cheers
Thank you for replying back uouapps and no worries. Look forward to your updates in a couple days! Cheers
Will keep you posted, stay tuned
Great to hear you are nearly at the release stage. One quick question, will metrodir have the same user front-page as in glocal or will it be styled differently?
Hi the dev from Glocal saw the front-end user page of metrodir and told me that I will be quite surprised so 1- we’re anyway releasing a restyled front-end user page for glocal
metrodir front-end user page is apparently great, I’m in Easter Asia with limited connectivity so couldn’t really follow up with the dev of metrodir, but i saw the latest update and we’re practically done, he said he needs help for the event tab function so it’s practically there
Thanks again for your patience
I also am interested in seeing the front end user page as I think that it is really important if you are creating a business that lets users edit their listing 24/7. Is the front end user friendly and professional looking, would be great if you could provide screenshots? I would only be interested in purchasing if the front-end does not look anything like the wordpress admin area as the information and image upload process is messy. On the glocal page you have said that 2 developers will begin working on glocal, so does that mean there wont be a developer working on metro after its release and less attention will be spent on it? Just concerned that updates or any bugs from metro will be not prioritized.
Hi, thanks for your interest and concern,
as for screenshots and demo access to glocal it will be provided asap (I’m waiting for it to be ready anytime + i’m also waiting for the update from the dev which includes a restyled front-end user page hopefully we will update it today)
glocal and metrodir have similar back-end so by having 2 people working on glocal backend = metrodir back-end it means that things will move faster in terms of enhancements but every developer will be in charge of his corresponding directory (synergies features/options will be ready faster)
I just checked you glocal theme and tested the front -end user page, its really nice but I think it still needs some modifications to make it more user friendly…How users upload and set featured image and also their gallery can be confusing for a total beginner but its a good step in the right direction. Some slight changes to the wording of the different areas too. I am only mentioning this because I want to be constructive with my comments and not negative. Just wondering is this glocal front end that you just improved going to be the same for metrodir or will metro have a different layout? Good work again on the improvements to the front-end
Hi Digital32, thanks for your kind message, I agree with you, I have provided different guidance to the dev but he told me yesterday that he was limited with the wp api which doesn’t allow him to have so much flexibility in terms of design especially for the company creation, but he’s looking into it and will try to figure out a way to have it completely independant from wp design, so once he manages to figure out how to shortcut the wp design then we’ll do a world-class front-end user page (if you have any tips on how this can be done without using external plugins then feel free to share with us your thoughts, we’re currently looking at how the others did it in order to inspire from them)
for metrodir I’m still waiting to see what the other dev did apparently he did an awesome job with the front-end user page but i don’t want to dissapoint you in case it’s nothing spectacular…
in his last update yesterday he told me he’s finalizing repsonsiveness so we’re a couple of days away from being ready, i’m really doing my best to have it ready asap this week
thank you very much for your constructive comment,
as soon as we’re done with the urgent priorities we’ll get back to the front-end user page (restlying and making the flow more friendly)
Cheers & Greetings
May I know when the Metro WP theme is ready? I’m looking forward to buy that as the PSD looks promising..
Hi, thanks for your interest, developer confirmed to me it’s almost ready he’s finalizing issues linked to responsiveness, so I’m doing my best to have it published this week
just to inform you that METRODIR is 99% ready we are currently polishing and preparing documentation so it should normally be submitted within Monday inchallah
Thank you all for your patience and wish you a Great Friday/week-end
That’s amazing uouapps! We look forward to your new release on Monday!
Wish you and all the team a great weekend!
thanks a lot mate all the best
Hi, I just saw the updated front end for Glocal. I have to say the improvement is huge from 1.6.1. Still needs some work, but the front end is on the right path. Will metrodir have at least the glocal front end, or maybe an improved one?
is it releasing today…
Hey , yes we’re preparing everythin for upload today, please guys excuse us if we dont reply to comments today we needto focus,
I’ll drop a line once it has been submitted
I want to buy theme, but before I would like to clarify some questions:
1)Is there possibility to switch membership package automatically, when paid membership expires?
2) Is there possibility to have logical fields when adding listing. For example, if user adds restaurant, “amount of people” field appears. If user chooses photographer, “price packages” field appears.
3) Can this theme be multilanguage? So when user adds listing he has to fill description in 2 languages. And listing would display corresponding language description?
just to inform you that we will be uploading METRODIR in a couple of hours, it’s 3 am over here so I’m out for tonight
When you release the theme can you provide test user & password to check user front end? Cheers in advance
we got a soft rejection today we’re republishing it tonight, I asked the dev to create a demo access for wp and front-end user page

Very nice. You guys have an amazing portfolio. Keep up the good work
Salam, thank you very much

Can Metrodir/Glocal hold 20,000 listings? Have you done any tests to verify the system behavior with high numbers?
Looking forward for the release!
Hi Oreeko, one of the buyers with whom we’re collaborating tested it on 25k and it worked fine, we will try to provide an official confirmation next week once we’ve done internal tests and code optimization, we’re focusing right now on code debugging
Wonderful! Thank you again for your excellent customer service! You guys rock!
you’re welcome mate
