Hi there, can you explain to me this:” Claim Listings

With this feature you can kickstart your directory by inputting or mass importing* listings and let business owners claim and pay for the listings so that they can edit, correct and add additional information. * Mass importing available as a service.” with this script i can import business data from other sites? or cvs files?

Hi,

There’s no import tool, you would have to import directly into the database.

thanks

Hi there, the script is ready to be translated? The script have translation files? I wait for your answer. Thanks

Hi there, yes, translation files for Spanish is ready. Thanks.

Hello, with this script can i manage the data entry entirely and disable registration for listings?

Also, i need to translate it, are there translation files?

Last thing, can i add more than 1 photo of each listing?

Also, i need the search bar to show categories too, like write Plumer on 1st box and New York on the second one and show all plumers on NY, can this be done?

Hi,

- yes, while logged in as “Admin”, you can add listings and you will also be able to edit and or delete them.

- there are translation files, please see how it works here: http://codebasedev.com/docs/directoryapp/#translation

- yes you can add more than one photo. Admin can configure how many photos are allowed.

- the search is keyword-based, so if all your plumber listings have the word ‘plumber’ in either the title or description, it will get listed in the search results. But if, for example, you have a restaurant called ‘plumber’ it will also get listed in the results.

thanks

Hi, can the Global type radio, text, checkbox, type text be removed? I see it in demo and displays about autos and beauty, but I want business directory on many businesses. What is the role of Global type and can it be removed manually from script?

Hi,

The “Global type” is just for showing the “Custom Fields” functionality. So I created a custom field named “Global type” and made it of type “Global” so this custom field will show no matter what category is selected. All custom fields can be removed, in fact, the default install doesn’t pre-install any custom field, so no need to remove. Thanks.

Hi, I installed the plugin and linked it to the database however I can’t login to Admin Dashboard. After providing my login details (admin@shopreadingma.com password: 1234) I get this error
Fatal error: Call to undefined function password_verify() in D:\home\shopreadingma.com\wwwroot\user\login.php on line 72
Please help me fix this! I inserted another user into the database manually but it gives same error. Did I miss something? Please help

Hi,

yes, this error you’re describing seems to be cause by your PHP version being below 5.5.

If you use something like cpanel, in the PHP section you can probably select which PHP version to run on your server. Please upgrade to at least PHP v.5.5

thanks

Thanks for the help, that fixed the issue but now I am facing other issues, I now get 404 Not Found Error when I try to create a listing.

Hi you need a server capable of running .htaccess rules and mod_rewrite or similar. I see you’re using IIS, I’m not familiar with that server. Can you run under Apache or similar? Thanks.

I may overlooked it, but with this script can one create sub categories of sub categories and so on? For example: Country/State/County/City .

Hi,

Yes you can create subcategories up to grandchild but location such as city/state/country is not set up as categories, the script has dedicated fields for those. Please note that there is no county field by default, although you can set up country field as state, then state field as county and keep city as city and it would work as well but then it will be assumed that there is only one country.

thanks.

Hi Codebasedev,

I have a problem after installation. I changed the admin password and email address, and then I logged out. Then I can not logged in, because I get this error message:

Error Number: 2 Error String: stream_socket_client(): php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known Error Line: 267 Error File: /home//public_html//partner/vendor/swiftmailer/swiftmailer/lib/classes/Swift/Transport/StreamBuffer.php Terminating scriptError Number: 2 Error String: stream_socket_client(): unable to connect to mail.example.com:26 (php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known) Error Line: 267 Error File: /home//public_html//partner/vendor/swiftmailer/swiftmailer/lib/classes/Swift/Transport/StreamBuffer.php Terminating scriptUncaught exception: Connection could not be established with host mail.example.com [php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known #0] Terminating script

My php version is: 6.6 MySQL verion: 5.6.33 (This could be the reason?)

Can you help me? Thanks, Lez

Sorry, my php version is: 5.6

Hi,

The error message indicates that you haven’t configured the SMTP settings, it still shows ‘mail.example.com’.

In the admin area, go to “Site Settings”, then “Email” tab and configure your SMTP information.

thanks

Thank you!

how to fix it

Hello,

For support questions, please use this form: https://codecanyon.net/item/directory-app-business-directory-script-build-a-city-guide/16447338/support

Your error is related with SMPT configuration missing. You can edit them in the Site Settings menu in the admin area.

thanks

i want to buy, but why description text cant be formatted all text just showing without spacing and paragraph etc.

Hi, it’s possible to easily format with spacing by editing one line in the template.

thanks

Hello! I read all the posts here regarding mass importing and that you offer it as a service. Can you provide a rough cost estimate here for all of us to see? I’m concerned about buying your script, then be shocked that this custom service you offer is way too expensive. I have roughly 300,000 records in CSV format that I would like to import for a small community site :-). It would be great to also understand the format that you need for the CSV file. Thank you.

Hi,

Please send me an email to admin@codebasedev.com and describing a little bit how is your csv. Thanks

I’m trying to figure out if this script works with the Foursquare API? I want to populate it with that data. If so, I’m a buyer!

Hi,

Sorry this script doesn’t use Foursquare API. thanks.

Hello, I am interested in making a directory site, but also with general advertising (e.g. adwords) and a blog about the local area. Would this script be adaptable to include these elements do you think?

Hi,

I’m not sure what you mean by general advertising adwords, is it adsense?

Unfortunately a blog system functionality is not included in the script, it would have to be coded separately.

Links to social media is already available, at this time Facebook and Twitter.

thanks

Thanks. I meant to have some ad banners around the site, as well as the listings.

Yes you can, but there’s no banner management solution built in, it would have to be done by editing the template files. HTH!

Nice update, but I tough you where going to put the tool to import listing ?

Sorry, currently the import is only available as a service.

Pre-sell enquiries: please is there a function where priority can be given to some set of particular businesses to display more or at the top? or what features can be used to differentiate a paid subscriber from free ones. thanks

Hi,

In this case, you can use the “featured” type plan along the free plan. The featured type plans will always appear on top before all other plan types.

thanks

Please kindly elaborate further. The “featured” type plan, is it part of the features on this program and how does it work in terms of segregating a paid subscriber to a free one. And also, can we have the FREE subscribers to be limited on their business entry details?

Hi,

Yes, the “featured” type plan is available when admin creates a plan. Admin can create these types of plans:

- paid featured - free featured - standard paid - free

So businesses listed under the featured plans will always show on top of the results when browsing by category or browsing keyword search results.

Limiting entry details is not available though.

thanks

Hi,

Do you plan to implement the follow features?

1) front page with map points from all locations?

2) a better description field editor (with bold, italic, h1, h2, etc like wordpress editor)?

Thank you.

Hi,

1) This looks interesting, I’ll investigate that but I can’t give you an estimate of when it will be available.

2) Not really in the plans at the moment, mainly due to security concerns, maybe in the future with something like HTMLPurifier but still.

thanks

it’s possible automatic post on my facebook fanpage when new listing is approved?

Hi, sorry but this feature is not available but will be considered. Thanks!

Hello, Codebasedev, I have a question. I bought a small unmanaged VPS (no control panel, no emailbox, no quota, but it has email server-exim or postfix); is your Email function from the app working by default with a VPS? what does it need to work? do I need extra steps to setup the SMTP on the unmanaged vps?

Hi, for the email function you need access to a SMTP server. You would have to consult with your hosting provider or sign up with a specialized SMTP provider such as sendgrid.com, Amazon SES, smtp.com, etc. Thanks.
