Is this theme really responsive, don’t think so. Its adaptable but not opening nicely on mobile. kindly suggest how to do following modifications.
- Remove Search box from map and put a responsive search above the map and below the top menu.
- Hide option for the map if customer don’t want to see it.
- Can’t find a place to change the location of map appearing with search box in homepage.
- If we insert a marker image in subcategory its not showing instead main category image is appearing.
Please post some screenshots to our support forum, our developers will have a look at it.

Sure, although one thing I am sure by now there are lot of issues with your theme.
I was actually impressed with directory and thought this one will be as good. Check it yourself. Click to contact page in your own demo site put pizza as keyword in the map (nothings appearing and search button not working) do the same thing in your directory theme. I hope you understand what i should be feeling after purchasing it.
I can see, there’s some kind of issue with geolocate features. We’ll fix it and release an update. Sorry for that. Thanks.
there is some issue with ajax search and subcategory sorting. put pizza in directory only pizza listings will appear do the same with business finder its showing other listings as well. I think the rules for subcategory has something to do with it.
We’ll have a look at it and release an update. Thanks.
In the mean time kindly suggest how to make it work. As I have already purchased it, and its unusable if the ajax search, geolocation, sorting and subcategory map icons are not working.
Hello! Nice theme.
But I have 2 essential remarks.
1) First one is about usability. When you find on the map some object and click “view more” there is still map on top ( http://goo.gl/q2aUcQ ). But it should be like this ( http://goo.gl/0MrqKu ). I tasted it on several people. Most of them confused for several seconds about what should they do to see the object.
2) The object pages look a little bit poor. I mean what about to add to them more photos, something like photo gallery, and videos from YouTube.
I think these two things will make this theme really great.
Thanks for your message. You can turn off the map on item detail pages. There’s also image gallery feature already you can use. No problems with videos as well. You can extend item fields pretty easily, please check the following link for more details: http://www.ait-themes.com/doc/how-to-edit-custom-type/?theme=businessfinder-wordpress-theme
I completely agree with mattadorr. Great theme that could use a few minor usability tweaks to really shine! Keep up the great work!
I want to get in touch with the authors directly. Because I think the support staffs at the forum either don’t have the ability to understand english or don’t have the technical knowledge or can’t gauze the technical level of the question.
I might be sounding harsh, but please, try to understand. I asked two questions there
1. I want to make gallery a paid for feature? How do I do that ?
The reply > Hi. I am not sure if I understand you. Theme provides to buy only account where you can set which fields from listing are allowed. Basically it means that users are paying for publishing items
Kill me if the reply even made a single sense to me. I just need to know how to make gallery feature payable or selectable on the different payment plans just like other elements.
2. How do you create a new sidebar?
The reply was > Hi, sorry but I don`t understand what you mean by creating new sidebar. and explained the way to add a widget.
This one I am Ok with, because I understand the person who replied needs to know what is a sidebar. I need to let her know, it’s not widget I am talking about but a entire new sidebar. It’s not widget because I didn’t mention widget on the question or did I ?
Anyways, good theme guys. If you can get good support for this theme, it’s destined for awesome success.
I specifically want the authors to reply this time, please.
Please post to our support forum, our support staff is there to help you and answer all your questions. Thanks.
Sorry for this stupid question, but what do you mean by claim a listing?
What it’s the mean? How will work?
You’ll be able to set up businesses on your postal and then business owner will be able to claim that listing as their own. Thanks.
But. For what?, what is the objective of that?
They will have their account once they claimed the listing?
I don’t get the idea
They’ll be able to administer their own listings.
Oh great, now I understand
does it have reviews and microdata for them?
Reviews are implemented. Thanks.
I’m very interested in your theme. Is there a way for people to pay to have their listing promoted to the front page?
You can set up different packages as administrator via admin panel. Assign different prices to these packages and people will be able to purchase them. You can then feature these items or display on the homepage. It’s up to you. Thanks.
To list something on the front page would I have to as an admin do that manually?
Best places section currently shows best rated places, but it’s not difficult to change it to take items from “higher” packages. Thanks.
Hi there. Can I set it so that listings have to be approved by an admin before they go live?
Yes that’s done that way, each time someone submits a new listing, it needs to be approved. Updates don’t have to be approved. Thanks.
Hi I’ve got pre sales question.
How can i view full register function demo.
You didn’t mentioned about SEO so is that possible to use Yost? How is that work for each listing.
if you can show or send me the link that i can demo that would be great.
Does search around my position only have kilometers option?
What miles around position?
Google maps has a great ‘get directions’ widget this should be a standard feature of a location based directory
Header image can be set for pages – this would be a nice feature for each directory ‘item’ as well
Too bad its not responsive.
Please check the following url on you mobile or tablet: http://preview.ait-themes.com/businessfinder/wp1/ Thanks.
Do you have a feature to have a photos gallery on each directory item? Its not ideal to have only a small picture. What about a video? Maybe new features to implement…
Might be a silly question but does every entry in the directory have its own url eg. www.website.com/business_name
Yes it does, for example here: http://preview.ait-themes.com/businessfinder/wp1/item/napolito-pizza/
Any way to set a default location for the Map situated on the homepage?
Sorry this is not possible.
Can you let me know when the listing claim feature will be available??
We want to release it next week. Thanks.
Is the permalink structure supported by the post name? Just tried it and its saying nothing can be found… hmmm
Also missing the register button option in the menu for the lightbox..
the permalink issue was on my end.
Please check the menu in your mobile. Also try to refresh your browser window after you resize it.
From my iPhone 4 and 5 I see this menu even more horrible than the video I sent you before. I am requesting this fix since theme release and you have done nothing about it. I can’t use a theme with a menu so horrible for my clients. Talk to support yourself I don’t have more time for this.
We’ll test it on more devices, but this is how it look son my iPhone 4: http://d.pr/i/bQIM
I don’t know why but for me is not looking like that. Maybe chrome or iOS 7 have something to do with that.
Curious on how to remove the
tags being added?
It only happens for the reviews.
Many users will be attempting to access on mobile but the navigation & some other input aspects of small screen are not great. This the main/only issue I’m having so far. It’d be great if mobile use is reviewed, (it’s working visually but a bit tedious on mobile)
Where is this .PO file located? I only found businessfinder.pot
File is in languages folder.
I currently have the directory portal theme and have been working on it, however I really like the business finder theme and was thinking about changing. Will I lose data? Is there much involved?
After viewing other comments about the theme not being responsive I checked and yes its pretty bad. It’s a shame because it looks great. Fix this then I’m in!
Please post more details what parts you don’t like as I don’t see any issues. Have you checked the site on actual phone and tablets? Thanks.
I checked on this site: http://mattkersley.com/responsive/
It doesn’t look too good on here, but again, a very good looking theme. In regards to my other question, will I have much trouble (loss of data etc) if I changed from directory portal?
Is it because I’m testing the demo site?
Please test the site in real devices. We’ve tested it in iphones, ipads and also few android phones. Site looks good.
Theme is compatible with Directory theme. You can upgrade without loosing items etc. Thanks.
