hello !

how to set the Filter Form icon show at responsive mode?

thank you !!!

here is my website WordPress 4.9.5 running Twenty Sixteen theme. http://www.heaplace.co/b/directory-drinkeat/ the mobile view https://prnt.sc/jf6eiz

Looks like you’re right, the filter button does get hidden even when the filters are on the main section of the page. We will release an update with a fix soon.

The introduction of custom post types is awesome, however not using the Wordpress featured image system is a shame. For example, displaying a list of latest directory listings using a popular recent posts plugin doesn’t work because it can’t find a thumbnail image. There will be many other situations where this becomes an issue going forward. Is there any way you can integrate this, so the first image uploaded to a new listing is also used as the featured image, even if you do it in the background?

We do plan to implement the feature soon however currently we have things with higher priority and have not yet looked into it in detail yet.

You can add the following code to your theme functions.php file to auto-assign the first image file as the featured image whenever a directory listing is added/updated:

add_action('drts_entity_create_post_entity_success', 'my_drts_entity_create_post_entity_succes', 10, 2);

add_action('drts_entity_update_post_entity_success', 'my_drts_entity_create_post_entity_succes', 10, 2);

function my_drts_entity_create_post_entity_succes($bundle, $entity) {
    if ($bundle->type === 'directory__listing') {
        delete_post_thumbnail($entity->getId());
        if ($value = $entity->getSingleFieldValue('directory_photos')) {
            set_post_thumbnail($entity->getId(), $value['attachment_id']);
        }
    }
}

Thank you for this, worked a treat in terms of adding the featured image to the listings, however this is now being output on the frontened end so each listing now has a featured image followed but the gallery. I can take this out by modifiy the listings CPT template, however could you tell me where to find this?

Hi, I have installed the directory and all of the other zip files and for some reason there are no options to enable: Payments, Claims,Locations – Could you please help. Thanks

Hello,

Thank you for the purchase.

Are you referring to the add directory page where you do not see the options? https://directoriespro.com/book/getting-started/creating-your-first-directory.html

It sounds like the Directories Pro plugin is not installed or active. Can you go to System -> Tools and try reloading all components from there? https://directoriespro.com/book/additional-features-and-settings/system-info-tools-and-logs.html#tools

I’m testing the plugin in a new site www.turismo3puntozero.it (before moving from Sabai to Directory Pro I would like to be sure) 1) by mistake I inserted the link of a youtube video (not only code) result: sistem error 2) I have deactivate ad reactivadet all plugins Directories Pro: Dashboard not work (I am redirected to the wordpress dashboard default) 3) Delete all plugin and reinstalled Directories Pro: Dashboard not work 4) Reset DataBase wordpress and all plugin and installed directories 1.06: Dashboard not work

I do not know what to do

I think the wordpress database got dirty

Hello,

The redirection occurs if there is no valid purchase code configured. Can you make sure that you have entered your purchase code under Settings -> Sabai as instructed in the documentation? https://directoriespro.com/book/getting-started/installation.html#register-your-license-key-purchase-code

If the issue persists, please contact support so that we can take a closer look at the issue you are having. https://directoriespro.com/support/

Are you still updating the original Sabai directory?

Hello,

Directories Pro did not originate from Sabai Directory. They are separate projects and both projects will continue to be available.

Dear Team,

We would like to purchase your plugin for our Listing website, before going for the purchase. We like to know whether we can get the following features inbuilt or with assistance.

1. Whether we can customize/edit the fields of the forms 2. Can I add new listing separately for event, property, jobs etc (Multi Listing)? 3. Is the plugin supports woo commerce? 4. Can I add the dropdown, checkbox, multi-choice fields in the forms? 5. Can I limit the character for the text fields 6. Will it support ultimate membership pro plugin for the user management? 7. Will it support the following themes to work with Be theme, Galison, Megashop and List Go? 8. What about the listing styles?

It would be helpful if you let us know that above features are available in the plugin. So that we can make the purchase at the earliest.

Looking forward to your reply.

Thank You

Hi Mate,

In demo.directoriespro.com, I can see the listings that you get from common categories like Arts & Humanities, Business & Finance etc. and you got listings from common location.

Also how can I get the Features, rating in filter form.

> In demo.directoriespro.com, I can see the listings that you get from common categories like Arts & Humanities, Business & Finance etc. and you got listings from common location.

Can you tell us in more detail since we did not understand what your issue is exactly with categories and locations.

> Also how can I get the Features, rating in filter form.

You can add filters to your filter form from Directories -> [Your Directory] -> Content Types -> Listing -> Manage Views -> Manage Filters. For more details on filters please see the following documentation page: https://directoriespro.com/documentation/getting-started/adding-and-managing-filters.html

Why tag is not available in conditional fields.

Hello, a few questions:

1) If you go here: https://demo.directoriespro.com/listings/categories/artists/?_page=2&num=10&sort=post_published

Can I disable the creation of new page for each listing? I need to simply display all the data about the business, but without creating an exclusive page.

2) Assuming not. How can I create a “noindex” tag for all the /listing/ pages?

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in the plugin.

1) It is not possible to disable the creation of single listing pages. However, you can disable links to single listing pages from the directory index page or category pages, and/or remove the “Read Listings” permission from all user roles so that no users are able to access single listing pages.

2) Unfortunately that is not possible out of the box, however since listings are custom post types, you can use SEO plugins that let you configure noindex for custom post types.

1) Assuming I disable the links, and remove the “Read Listings” permission, the page will still be visible to search engines?

Search engines will also not be able to see the listings.

Hello dear support,

Like @jkmuthu, could not see any page of listing when i add shortcode into the page. I got a redirection to homepage (for listing, submission form…)

solved.

Hello,

By default you do not need to add any shortcode to any page to start using the plugin. What shortcode have you exactly added to the pages?

Hello, thanks for answer. Solved on my side. Back to you if i get another problem. I really like your clean admin UI. So pro. Very impatient to see leaflet.js integrated :-). I could be a tester if needed.

I’m seriously impressed with the support. Keep it up! I encourage people to try support before complaining here. It paid off for me

Hi. I see this is relatively new. I often buy if there is an introductory offer as it usually takes quite a few updates to get bugs worked out and add features. Are you considering this? Also, is there a demo for a listing site that is non-location-based such as a directory for online stores? It can do this, right? I need something searchable by categories, not location.

Lastly, is it possible to work in a shortcode on a directory page? I wanted to incorporate Simple Link Directory where people can add a free listing and if they want something larger and more advanced, they can submit to this directory.

Hope that makes sense. It would be a rather large directory and these would be premium listings. The SLD ones would be free and pretty small and simple.

Thanks!

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in Directories Pro.

> Hi. I see this is relatively new. I often buy if there is an introductory offer as it usually takes quite a few updates to get bugs worked out and add features. Are you considering this?

Yes, we are continuously working on the plugin to make it better. We are planning to release a few number of updates this week.

> Also, is there a demo for a listing site that is non-location-based such as a directory for online stores? It can do this, right? I need something searchable by categories, not location.

Unfortunately we do not have a demo for non-location based directory, but yes you can simply disable the locations feature in your directory. Since the plugin lets you create multiple directories, you can have both location based and non-location based directories at the same time.

> Lastly, is it possible to work in a shortcode on a directory page? I wanted to incorporate Simple Link Directory where people can add a free listing and if they want something larger and more advanced, they can submit to this directory.

You can use shortcodes, however we are not exactly sure what you are trying to do. Is it not possible to simply use the shortcode of Simple Link Directory on a different page?

> And how many levels deep can we make the categories?

There is no limit as with categories for posts and pages.

Thanks for the replies. I think that tells me what I need to know. If I don’t use this on this project, I’ll definitely keep it in mind. I have a BuddyPress theme I really like and use often, so the advantage of this is I can build a directory into the site without compromising the community theme.

I have a question. With the NEW Google maps API coming up in June, we need to register and add a payment in order to use the maps. I do not wish to do this. Does your Maps on your theme require an API code to operate?

Hello,

Yes, currently you do need Google Maps API in order to use the map features of the plugin. However we do plan to add an option to use leaflet.js instead for those who do not wish to use their API.

everything is going good during the instalation process, but when I try to active pluging the following message appears for each one: - directories: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/acade941/public_html/rampfy.net/wp-content/plugins/directories/directories.php on line 16 - directories front end: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/acade941/public_html/rampfy.net/wp-content/plugins/directories-frontend/directories-frontend.php on line 13 - d. payments Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/acade941/public_html/rampfy.net/wp-content/plugins/directories-payments/directories-payments.php on line 13 - directories pro Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/acade941/public_html/rampfy.net/wp-content/plugins/directories-pro/directories-pro.php on line 13 - directories review Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/acade941/public_html/rampfy.net/wp-content/plugins/directories-reviews/directories-reviews.php on line 13 please help

Hello,

Can you first make sure that you are running PHP 5.4 or up on the server?

Also when you activate plugins, make sure to activate Directories first and others after that.

it worked! just upgraded for 5.6 . thanks!

Hello, Nice looking product. Before purchase would like to know if it is possible from front end to see all the listings by a particular person/business? That is, when looking at a listing to be able see further listings by that person (like related posts or viewing author’s posts).

Hello,

Yes, you can simply create a “view” that displays listings by the author of the currently viewing listing, and add the shortcode of the view to the “Detailed” display of listings using the display editor.

For more details on views and displays, please see the following pages in our documentation:

https://directoriespro.com/documentation/getting-started/displaying-content-with-views.html https://directoriespro.com/documentation/getting-started/managing-and-customizing-displays.html

hello, nice product. Having issue display the search form on a page. using the shortcode [drts-directory-search] I am getting it blank. There is another shortcode to display the Search Form. Thank you

Hello,

Have you also added the “directory” parameter to the shortcode which is required?

Can the search form be added anywhere on a page by shortcode?

Hello,

Yes. You can also use the do_shortcode function to add it to one of your theme template files.

Hello, do you have a comparison table which compares all the features for Sabai Directory and Directories Pro? As you are the Developer of both plugins, I think you can easily explain the differences. Thank you very much

A million thanks for all of your information.. I think this is the best directory plugin I will work with.. However, I am sill waiting for a better price offer because at the current $39 price point in my opinion is still too expensive for a plugin, with that price I think it is better to buy a complete package directory theme…

Maybe I will wait for the next upcoming Black Friday Sale hopefully this plugin will be on sale also..

Those directory themes do look great, however imho currently there isn’t any theme that has all the flexibility and features Directories Pro provides. Also you won’t be able to switch themes easily. Anyway, thank you for your interest and make sure to follow my account to receive updates on the plugin!

Yes, that is totally true that your plugin provides flexibility to switch easily between themes. But, still the price point is still pretty high for me, I got the Listingpro theme only for $35 when it is on sale and $29 for the Mylisting theme. I bought them all… You can see my website which is still in the development process at https://www.usaha99.com .

That’s why, I will wait for a good price offer for this plugin as I am really interested in this plugin.. Thank you very much for your hard work creating this plugin..

This is a very amazingly useful plugin for those wanting to build a directory website. あなたは素晴らしいです

Can you send me the Search shortcode. An example please. As this one is not working [drts-directory-search]

Hello,

Please make sure that you have added the “directory” parameter with the name of your directory to the shortcode, for example: [drts-directory-search directory=”my_directory_name”]

But the search is working on this address of my website : http://zethical.com/hed/directory-university/search/

Hello,

Please make sure that you have added the “directory” parameter with the name of your directory to the shortcode, for example: [drts-directory-search directory=”university”]

Hello,

Thanks this work well, I have created a feature list to display on a page and added to Manage Filters, but need it also be to appear on the search.

I have check it on the Directories Search tab: Directories » Course » Content Types » Listing Search tab:

Search taxonomy term names Categories Tags

Extra fields to include in search University – field_university

But my search is displaying only keysearch and Categories. How to add the Extra Field, Please.

Thank you for your help.

Hi. Can the link be turned OFF on the business title so it doesnt go to a detail page? Thanks

Hello,

Yes, it can be turned off. If you have a URL type custom field, you can also link the title to the URL entered for that field.
