I’ve been scrounging themeforest and the internet for days for what I need, but I cannot find it.
I’m looking for classy and elegant looking theme which is mobile friendly.
This website will be an exclusive listing style website where users will be registering and signing up to be listed. It will be free for 30 days and then I need a recurring payment gateway setup which auto charges. I want the registration and account setups done by the user which fills out name, descriptions, attachment of photos, etc. I would like a green light (online) button next to the profile once the user is logged in. The user will be able to login and edit the profile whenever they like. Everything should be automated…once the user is signed up, it should go in to pending state until an admin approved and the ad becomes live.
The closest thing I thought of was a directory listing website but none are appealing and none operate in this fashion.
Is this a custom setup or is anything out there like this?
There are several directory style themes on here BUT what you are talking about is a custom function (you may find some form of plugin that does some of it) and unlikely to be included in a stock theme.
Even if there was one that was right as the use will be charging people you would need an extended license and given the thousands of $ to do that you would be better off spending it having a freelancer create a custom solution and put the backend systems in place properly and securely.
