This is what I did to correct the issue.

npm install -g ionic@3.4

1. remove last android build – ionic cordova platform rm android or IOS 2. add the android platform again.

I am also noticed that the node_module folder in the BusinessDirectory-1.1.5 is empty, no any files. Why?

I am confused about the time format in firebase database. How to enter 8.00 am for business hours. Thank you.

Hi, if the “node_modules” is empty, you should install the required libraries by using the npm install command. Regarding the kilometer indication, does the kilometer indication work when running the app on your browser? Also, have you enabled the Geolocation service of the Android device you are testing the app on? The kilometer indication works by getting the user’s position and calculating the distance between their current position and the business. Finally, regarding the time format, the opening hours of a business represent Date Javascript objects and, thus, the time value is the number of milliseconds since 1 January, 1970 UTC: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Date. To generate those values you could use an online tool such as the following one:https://www.epochconverter.com/.


Im really interested to buy your directory, but I have just some question:

is it comoatible with wordpress? I have a listify directory (uses custom type post and wp job manager) Is it easy to use them as listings via json?

i have too a reviews plugin called Reviews for WP Job manager. is it possoble to use them for the apps reviews? and about submitting reviews and ratings via app?

is it possible to have Social Login?

and use the tags via wordpress?

Hi, thanks for your interest in buying our products. Indeed, you could use our Business Directory app to fetch the content of your Wordpress site into it by having a JSON API to make the data available for the mobile app to consume it. However, you would need to make additional changes to map the data your API returns to the data property names the mobile app uses. Also, you would need to extend one of the existing Data providers the app has or create a new one for making all the necessary requests to your Wordpress site. Some coding experience would be required for that. For your second question, we should check whether there is a JSON API for GETting and POSTing reviews and ratings from/to your Wordpress site. You could share your API information with us so we can have a look. For the social login, it is not implemented such a feature in the mobile app but this is feasible. About the tags, could you be a bit more descriptive? Where and how would you like them to be used in the app?

Hi, thanks for the reply.

About the tags, would like to know if the tags from wordpress to filter results (like “accept credit card”, “has takeaway”, and so on, could be used with the app. But it is not so important to know.

Another important question: Is it possible for the user to “Add Places” from the App ? That would be awesome?

Plus, a login would be great too.



Hi, the app does provide some filtering options. These are “sort by distance from user”, “sort by name”, and “filter by business category”. If you have enough coding experience you could add more filtering options. Also, the users cannot add listings through the app. They can only view the business listings.

Hi, I didin’t unterstood how to use “Open Hours” in Backoffice


satsalou Author Team

Hi, the time values like 1420124400000 actually refer to a Date Javascript object (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/scripting/javascript/reference/date-object-javascript) and they are the number of milliseconds between January 1, 1970, and the date/time you are supposed to set for an openAt/closeAt time. For example, if you set 1420124400000, this equals to Thu 01 Jan 2015 15:00:00 (GMT). The app will take into account the time (that is 15:00:00 GMT) since it is looking for the opening/closing time only. To find the correct values for your case, you could use an online tool such as the following one: https://www.epochconverter.com/.


I am wondering if it possible to send the push notification by businesses. The business directory have many businesses listed and is that possible to send a push notification only for one business at a time. Thank you.


satsalou Author Team

Hi, in the push notification message, you can include whatever information you like. It could be either about a specific business or all businesses. It could even be anything irrelevant to the businesses. I hope this helps.

That is good news. How do I set the push notification. What code I need to change for this push notification to work. Thank you.


satsalou Author Team

Hi, did you try to follow the instructions in the “Push Notifications” section in the Start Guide? Please, open a ticket at https://appseed.desk.com/customer/portal/emails/new if you need further help.

i’ve downloaded the app to view it.. but the app code E1F02EDD gives me a message which says”no public channels.”


satsalou Author Team

Hi, this app uses Firebase as a backend. The data entry and modification can be done through Firebase’s user interface by making a free account at https://firebase.google.com/. There are detailed instructions and information in the app’s documentation that can be found on the “Item details” tab: http://codecanyon.net/item/business-directory-ionic-full-application-with-firebase-backend/14681052. Though, bear in mind that we offer an Admin Panel for Firebase data management. For more information, please, visit http://appseed.io/business-directory-firebase-admin.

Thanks for your replay… just one last question .. i am going to use this app in arabic.. so how hard is it to change the lay out to rtl and change the font used in the app?

Unfortunately, we have no experience with RTL languages.However, we do have an article about how to add multi-language support to your app you might find helpful: https://medium.com/appseed-io/internationalize-and-localize-your-ionic-application-e16b4db1907b

Hi, When I used your code , the map option is not work. When I click on map, nothings happen. Is there any setting for map which we need to implement .

Hi, firstly, could you explain why the map is not working? For example, is the app showing a blank screen? Additionally, could you confirm that you have set up the mapdata for all the businesses you want to appear as pins on the map?

Also, could you look for any log messages in the Javascript console of your browser? If any, please, share them with us.

Hi, When I click on map, its shows the loading round gif for 30 sec and after that stay on the same page(means loading round gif disappear and does not goes to the map page)

I have setup the mapdata as you mentioned on the screenshot , but still not working .

Hope you will reply soon .


Hi, it would be really helpful if you could look for any log messages in the Javascript console of your browser as suggested in the previous comment. Please, share them with us.

@ramaperu thanks

So I’m slightly frustrated went through the entire Quickstart with problems from beginning to the end and can’t get anything to run. Anyone here to help?

Hi, could you share what steps you followed and any error logs you encountered mentioning the name of the app you are referring to using the following form, please? https://appseed.desk.com/customer/portal/emails/new

Hi, I’m wondering whether users can attach photos to their reviews.


satsalou Author Team

Hi, thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. No, attaching photos to reviews is not supported by this app. You would need to write your own code to implement that. Please, let me know if you have more questions.

Hi. Some questions:

1) Is there any possibility to import a list of entries by CSV or XML?

2) How many entries can be input and still have a acceptable performance for the user?

3) Is there possibility to include coupons and/or loyalty cards for each business?

4) Push message is sent by each business or only one app administrator?




satsalou Author Team

1. You can import a JSON file using the UI Firebase provides. So, you could convert your CSV file to JSON using an online tool.
2. Until 1000 entries you should face no issue. More than those, you may need to add pagination on loading.
3. You could implement that, however, this is not supported by the current code of the app.
4. Only by an ap administrator.
