Pre-sale question: with this plug-in is it possible to add a custom field which is searchable?

Right now, categories and locations are searchable. I would like to add a “recommended by” field to group items across categories and locations. Or is this a custom feature I will need to develop on my own? Thanks!

Hi, Thank you for your message. Custom fields you add with this plugin are not searchable by default. You’ll need to develop this feature.

Hello I could not use the plugin and install it and I could not climb item how do I do it?

Hello,

Presale Question: I bought a directory theme but it’s failed to do what I need it to and was wondering if this plugin can be used with the directory theme I’m using now (DirectoryEngine)? Also, will the plugin look as it does in the Business Finder example, as this is the one that I REALLY like.

Thanks!

Hi, Sorry this plugin will only work with our Directory and Business Finder themes. Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply :) Guess I’ll be converting to your Directory then!

We’re working on a new Directory+ update that will be available this month for free. You can look forward to it :)

How can you list a WP Plugin without making it perfectly clear that it ONLY WORKS WITH YOUR THEMES!!!! And what kind of Directory Theme needs you to buy a Directory Plugin anyway????? What a SCAM!

Please read the item description again. It’s clearly stated there several times. Thank you.

Is this a stand along plug-in?

I bought the Export to CSV plugin from AIT and I bought this plugin to extend fields. Problem is that the new fields I added using this plugin are not making themselves available to be exported using the Export To CSV plugin by AIT. Please advise how I can export my custom fields?

Hi Pre-purchase questions:

1. Is it possible to embed directory items (by category) into another website to be displayed there?

2. Does this plugin work with your new Directory+ theme?

Thanks!

Hi guys, just bought this plugin a few days ago to use with your Directory Portal Theme, installed it and all works 100%. Just noted that you have changed this plugins’ description TODAY to EXCLUDE the Directory Portal Theme. Does this means that I have bought a plugin less than three days ago and now with the latest Directory Portal upgrade, this plugin cannot be used anymore and it was a waste of money or will this plugin also be upgraded? :( Please advice ASAP as I need to update my Directory Portal Theme and it seems that both the Directory Extension and Directory Directions plugins have become absolute within three days after purchase and may not function anymore :(

Thanks for quick response, but I would think if a theme is updated, the optional purchased plugins that go with the specific theme should be updated as well, since the old theme version will not be useable anymore and and thus the brand new purchased plugins that was advertised with the theme becomes useless if not also updated and be available to clients who have already purchased it :( Don’t think this is fair to clients as it would mean that whenever the developer changes the theme, clients that have purchased the extra plugins are now forced to re-purchased the same plugins again (even if it became useless within 3 days after purchase)! :( The Directory WP theme is great, but if a lot of the theme’s functionality depends on extra purchased plugins, then the upgrades/updates of these plugins should be made available to clients who have already purchased both the WP theme and extra plugins – as also indicated on the Codecanyon site with the plugins (i.e. that once bought, you are entitled to free updates/upgrades – it does not say that the plugin’s updates will terminate if/when the theme(s) are updated)! :(
That means, the 1138 clients that have already bought this Directory plugin before the Directory Portal update (maybe a few less if they are using the Business Finder Theme that may also be updated soon with same consequence for plugin purchasers), are now forced to re-purchase the same plugin/functionality for the updated Directory Portal WP theme if they want to continue using the WP theme that they have purchased ?! :( Really do not see ENVATO endorsing this as it sets a president for ALL future WP theme and optional theme plugins?!

Hi. I feel the same way with MJG007 feel. I just bought this plugin a few days ago along with the theme directory. A lump in my mind is why no previous explanation that this plugin will not be compatible with the latest version of the directory theme? Then what policies could be given to me on my purchase it?

You can still use the plugin with the old version of Directory theme or with Business Finder theme. Thanks.
