Hi all,

I am looking for a template in which my friends can upload picts taken in the streets of my city to show city problems. Is there a chance for guset to upload not a business but a place and a text?

waitng for yours

Thanks for your message. Theme is developed to support businesses, but you can change it to your needs. You can take our theme as a base and then change it to create your own unique portal.

Hi ,

A few questions before I purchase.

1) On the demo , there is only 1 homepage. I can see several homepage variations on directory demo. Any idea why only one variation is displayed?

2) On the demo again , when I click on the blog , Theme Features is also highlighted…. is it intended?

3) I find the menu highlight colour and style to be not my taste. Is it possible to change it?


Hi, Please see my answers below:

1. You can create all these homepages in Business Finder as well, no problem.

2. Thanks for spotting that, we’ll fix it and release an update.

3. You can change all colors via admin panel, style can be changed using Custom CSS.

i most like this theme but i want know you expect to add registration system for users

sorry ait i didn’t see it .can i get register form into home page

Yes you can use shortcode or widget. Thanks.

thanks for your reply . :)

Do i need to buy the extended license if i’m planning on having ads on the site.

Thanks for your message. You don’t need to purchase Extended license for that.

The “Contact owner” form works badly with Chrome on the demo site. It has to have a close button as well.

Are you planing to enhance a profile page with some kind of gallery?

Thanks for the message, we’ll have a look at it. Gallery is already implemented.

Can i add rveolution slider for listings page?

You can only use it on standard pages. Thanks.

Do you know of any real life working site’s using this template I could view before purchasing?

Theme was released few days ago, there’re no real sites so far. But have a look at our facebook page, we have a showcase gallery. You’ll be able to find few Directory sites there. Thanks.

1.Does it have shortcode for listings as well? Last 3 listings, 3 listings from specific category and so on?

2.How hard it it to make image 4 times smaller in Header with Image Version?

Thanks for your message. Please see my answers below:

1. Sorry there are no shortcodes like that, but you can use sections for recent places and so on.

2. You can change it in html/css files

Does the Review and Location meta (schema) data show up?

I have asked a few times. Thank you (please inform me if future addition or no plans).

a url you can see all of what i am talking about on google below -

Google Example with Rating: http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.yelp.com%2Fbiz%2Falma-pan-latin-kitchen-pittsburgh

(you can see the data with reviews and the business location)

Google Example of Yours: http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?q=http%3A%2F%2Fpreview.ait-themes.com%2Fbusinessfinder%2Fwp1%2Fitem%2Fbike-pro%2F

(you can see all of the missing data)


If you view the source code of a listing you will see on line: 1075 the item data being processed.. If you could add the simple code here to add the schema data <item prop=”business-address”> it would help seo and sales by a lot. (or if there is a child theme let me know, ill just do it myself).

an example for others looking for this as well -

<dl class="item-detail-contact">
<div itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/LocalBusiness">

 <div itemprop="address" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/PostalAddress">

    <dt class="item-detail-info-term">Address:</dt>

<span itemprop="streetAddress">
<dd class="item-detail-info-desc">66 Pearl Street</dd>


Sorry theme does not support that. You can take our theme as a base and extend it to your needs. I highly recommend using child theme for that. Thanks.

What is the difference between directory and business finder themes?. Most of the functionalities seems to be same

Please check the theme description, you’ll find all information there. Thanks.

This is a nice theme. I am keen to buy it! Just a question, i did not see “Claim a Listing” function, my business model required this function. Wondering when this function will be made available?

Thanks for your message. This feature will be available soon in a free update.

On each listing, is it possible for the Twitter feed of that individual business to show instead of the generic one? Could be an Oauth headache, but is it possible?

There’s no technical issue to do it, the only issue will be to get all required keys from client’s twitter accounts.

Exactly, nightmare!

Do you think it would be possible if in the theme, as part of item submission there were fields for the consumer key/secret pair (and a hint telling customers how to get it), it would be possible to create an option to show the stream for those who have entered it?

Is this something you could add to a future release? I think it could be a very positive selling feature.

It shouldn’t be very difficult to implement it, but I don’t think that many people would benefit from that feature.

You can always extend the theme to your needs to make it unique for you or your customer. Thanks.


Is it possible to change the default location to a location I choose ? Since the default location is for now New York. How do I change that ?

and how do I disable the POI that already are in google maps

oh, true that :) btw, will you maybe add a future update to integrate it with http://www.mapbox.com/

I’m not sure if people would want to pay $50 a month for a map. Majority of people are happy with Google Maps which are currently probably the best maps on the market.

Just wanted to make a comment that it does work and with you topclass support you guys helped me with this problem. 5 star support.

so if you want to remove the Point of intresset on the google map just go to the support site and you will find the answer. Thank you guys for this!

Hello, I’m interested in this topic. Before buying, I wanted to understand a few things. And ‘possible to enter text on the home page? I would like to know exactly where the text will be placed. Could I get a screenshot of the home page with 10 lines of text? thanks

Sorry my bad, content goes over all sections on the homepage just under grey bar with categories and locations: http://d.pr/i/tlOX

Thanks for the reply. So the text is going to place here? Part http://oi42.tinypic.com/29dads0.jpg from the left edge to the right edge? Or is formatted differently? Thanks for the support.

Yes exactly + sidebar.

Hello, Why not demo login? Is it possible to add a test point?


Sorry we don’t have demo admin set up. Thanks.

Hello, First of all, your theme is really awesome, i would like a feature to be added and il sure your theme will hit top sales very soon.

The feature is to allow visitor/user to locale the nearest business/location he looking for with the ability to show the way/road (in the map) on how he can reach that location. Since its geolocalisation system, i think using some kind of GPRS detection between the current visitor/user position ad the location he looking for.

What do you think ? If you dont think you will add this or soon, can you please tell me when should i start ?

Keep up the good work :)

Thanks for your message. Directions feature is not planed yet. We have to finish all features we already promised.

hello, if i was to buy business finder or the directory theme which one should I choose?

I suppose the newest business finder ?

I only depends on your need and what design you like. Both themes are similar in terms of functionality. Thanks.

When will you permit users to submit the details of a business listing through front end. In the current implementation of the directory theme only admin seems to be having the ability to submit a business

Users can register and add in their listings even now. Thanks.


Admin can save a listing. Will user be able to claim the listing for his account and future payments?

Yes this feature is under construction. It’ll be available as free update. Thanks.

May I know, when are you planning to release this feature?

We plan to release it today. It will be available for download after approval. Thanks.
