Love this thieme and am about to buy. A couple of questions. 1. I understand that the clients/users of listings in the directory would have login details to access and amend their listings correct? 2. They would receive these after having made payment? 3. Also is it possible for these listings and accounts to be soley managed by the main website administrator? 4. Is it possible to have different colour schemes for different sections i.e. home in the teal colour, blog in the purple? 5. Can this theme have an e-commerce online shop plug-in integrated, added to it? 6. Can you turn the map off altogether if desired? 7. The ratings, can be written by any visitor to the site? These can be approved and or removed? Many thanks, look forward to hearing from you.
Hi, Thanks for your message. Please see my comments below:
1. Yes that’s correct. Users can register, select a package and then add and administer items in your directory portal.
2. You can create free of payable packages.
3. Yes you can also manage items by administrator.
4. You can change colors in the admin panel, alternatively you can use custom css or child theme for advanced changes.
5. You can use WooCommerce.
7. Yes, users or admin can approve reviews.
Excellent – thanks for the rapid response
Great theme. Is it possible to create a custom review? e.g. if reviewing a doctor ‘food’ is not relevant.
You can only create generic questions by default, you cannot change review questions per category.

Do you plan to integrate a shortcode for the last added directory items. It is very necessary things for us who bought this theme. See support forum….
Sorry, wrong theme dicussion
congratulations nice theme!
I am very interested in purchasing this theme, I wanted to ask if you could put a link in special offers?
Yes you can put a link there. Thanks.
hi, my media library has no default media …..
Love the theme and have bought it. I would like to know if it is possible set the map to a certain location? I have a client that want’s their details to be the centre of the map when people first visit the website. Is this possible?
When Search around my position is activated by clicking the crosshair icon and then by moving the slider 2-3 times to desired distance and pressing search the browser freezes we have to crash the browser.
I have posted this on forum also but no reply.
I have a couple of issues:
1. When adding content in the normal add content area, first of all I dont see the text editing options/icons such as paragraph, bold, kitchen sink etc.
2. When I try to add content to the content area (visual mode), I cant add anything. If I switch to Text mode, I can add content when I publish/update the content is shown on the page. However, if I add content in Text mode, then switch to Visual mode, I do not see the content. When I try to view the page I get a pop up box asking me to Confirm Navigation and asking if I want to “Leave the Page”
3. The page I added is not showing up as a recent page in the Menus section. And even when I add the new page to the menu, it shows up in the menu list in Appearance=>Menu=>Main-Menu but does not appear in the navigation on the website.
Hi, I have found the solution by searching the FAQ supplied with the documentation. I had to create a config.php file in the theme’s root (not the wordpress root) and set the following:
dashboard = enabled
website_settings = enabled
branding = enabled
skins = enabled
backup = enabled
wysiwyg = disabled
Now it all works correctly.
Spoke too soon, as soon as I got the Visual editor to work, my items on the website started throwing 404 Not Found errors when clicking on the selected item???? -
Simple fix – Reset the permalinks and it all works fine again
I understand that it is not possible to get this kind of url structure by default:
Is it possible to get it with admin set up or does it need some custom coding?
One more question: Is it possible to post event as well
Events are not supported by default, but you can use 3rd party plugin for wordpress.org for events. Several plugins have been discussed on our support forum already.
I would like to purchase the business finder theme but, want to know if i can add a chat feature for businesses and customers to interact. If so, what plugin would you recommend?
Hi, you can install bbPress if you like. Thanks.
hi, is there an option in this theme to close the option for others to add to the directory? my client wants a directory site that only him can add businesses. is this theme good for him?
Sure, you can disable registration process and add and administer businesses yourself.
also, does it have geolocation
Yes geolocation support is already included. Thanks.
I puchased the theme on Saturday as I was very impressed with the design and claims it was responsive. However, after installing it and spending in excess of 8 hours configuring the site for a client demo tomorrow, I was very dissapointed to find the theme is NOT responsive.
It is responsive to iPads if they are in landscape view but do not work correctly when in portrait view. I have checked this with 3 iPads (all different models) I have tried with ASUS Transformer TF300T and get the same problem. I have checked with 3 different smartphones and get the same problem of the screen not resizing correctly. I have tried with 3 different emulators (all of which work correctly with ALL the other responsive designs either we have created or bought via Themeforest.
I have been involved with web design for over 20 years and this is the first “responsive design” I have purchased that is NOT responsive for mobile devices.
In searching this issue on this forum many others have had and are suffering with the same problem. I believe you really need to update the CSS and ensure the design works for devices less than 480px (497 trigger point). There are many smartphones that have screen resolutions ranging from 280 to 320px and using your “responsive design” they are having an extremely poor user experience.
I would like to keep with this theme, as I have spent a lot of time in setting up the site ready for a presentation and I will not have time to start with a new design so I have to present what I have so far. However, all I ask is that you please update the CSS with a working response for those screens less than 480px (497px trigger)?
Theme is styled for mobile devices and tablets, just tested it on my ipad mini. Please post more details and screenshots to our support forum.
Hi, do the “Special Offers” rotate automatically?
Sorry this is not supported by default as far as I remember.
Can the special offers randomly show at the homepage?
Special offers section shows by default most recent offers, but you change change this functionality. Lot of nice and handy features are already included. You can take our theme as a good base and build on top of that to create your own unique portal.
Its posible to changue item categorie for another?
Hi, sorry this is not possible by default.
I’d like to know if there is any way to make the theme compatible with WPTouch or similar plugins to make it more mobile friendly.
Where can i preview the registration process?
Can you set custom fields for this?
With reviews, can you just be a general user to place them or have to have a listing?
Have you tested with Buddypress? – Would be great to allow users/customers to talk and group discuss listings.
Also, do you have tiered listing prices? What controls this? are you able to set additional features for High priced plans? Or block features for lower ones etc?
Hi, Thanks for your message.
You can extend our theme no problem.
Buddypress does not work with this theme.
You have full control over packages, you can setup up different price plans with different allowed features.
