Hi, I have a few problems.

1. First of all, ever since I installed the pro directory plugin “hackers” gained access to my website and changed specific posts to “Hacked by [alias]”. As i was working directly on the site I could immediately deal with that. I assume they found there way in through the login of the plugin. This is immensly irritating. I had to prompt all users to update their passwords immediately. How can I make sure that no one is able to login via the plugin wizard? How can i idealy disable the plugin possibility at all?

2. Is it possible to have 2 different directories on 2 different sub pages of my site? I would like to have one directory for national services and another one for international ones. Is this at all possible, and if so, how?

3. When I use the keywords in the search bar, a whole lot of my posts show up that i never included in the listings of the directory. how can i disable that? i do not want any random posts showing as business entries, only the listings i put in.

4. I set up more fields for the listing. But I can´t acces them either via the “add new listing” function via “my-account”, nor add them, when I view and edit the newly added item from the backend. how can I access them? They do show up empty on the listing page itself.

5. how can I customise the listing template? I do nt need any social media or video buttons and only want the fields to show that are listed.

6. I am using InFocus theme. I would like to use the theme shortcodes to layout the texts in the listings. But it looks like the plugin prevents this. how can I solve this?


Thank you, i am looking forward to your informations.

1. You can delete the login page.

2.No, it will not support. But our new plugin will support it.https://codecanyon.net/item/institutions-directory/19404510

3. Search result is a single page , no paging.

4. Need to check the issue.

5. Edit the template file.

File location: plugins/directory-pro/template/directories/

6. I’m not clear, please send screenshot.

7. It will not support

8. You can add double entry for the date

9. Please change template css.

10. I will check the translate issue.

11. You need to replace all code where the AM/PM is existing


Thank you for your reply. I have a few follow up questions and hope for a quick solution. To make it easier I will use the same topic numbers.

2. Oh snap, this new Plugin suits my needs much better than the Directory pro. Is there any chance that I can exchange the licenses?

3. I think you misunderstood me here. When I use the search bar to look up entries, I get a lot of results that are not listings I want to show in the directory, e.g. old blogposts. I would like to disable the ‘search by keyword’ feature and only have the ‘search by categorie’ feature showing in the search bar. Your answer doesn’t help me here. Please elaborate.

5. Can you please tell me the name of the file I need to customize? Where can I find it?

6. I am not sure what screenshot you would like. The screenshot of my theme? Here is the link to the shortcodes my theme supports: http://themes.mysitemyway.com/infocus/shortcodes/fancy-lists-shortcodes/ I would like to use this shortcodes to structure my listings. Wen i apply them to the text, it will not show. 8. You said the opening hours support double entries. Sadly, they don’t. Here is a screenshot of the entry fields: http://berufsverband-sexarbeit.de/blog/wp-content/uploads/opening-hours.jpg And here is a screenshot of the listing, that showws the problem: http://berufsverband-sexarbeit.de/blog/wp-content/uploads/opening-hours-listing.jpg

I hope you see the problem now.

8. Problem with display of differing opening hours for same day. Screenshot of what I try to enter: http://berufsverband-sexarbeit.de/blog/wp-content/uploads/opening-hours.jpg

It will only ever show the last entry made for same day. Tuesday 8:00 – 11:00 Tuesday 12:00 – 15:00 is not shown, only Tuesday 12:00 – 15:00 will show.

Thanks for sharing

New issue, when viewing the item (e.g. vie the map marker) my whole site layout is completely off. see here: http://berufsverband-sexarbeit.de/directories/leipzig-beratungsstelle-fuer-std-und-aids/ And compare to normal layout of website: http://berufsverband-sexarbeit.de/international/

This is an urgent issue, please help me to resolve.

After all I am going to abandon the plugin.

It turns out the search entries redirect me to a default “directories” page on which the listing is then shown which completely ruins my page layout – I have no way of fixing that without bringing the rest of my page layout in disarray. I didn´t plan on rearranging my whole theme to make one plugin work.

The search only works once, then the results and the map get stuck on the previous results. I need this site to display services for people who need information about availability in different parts of the country, so a one-off search is not doing me any good.

In the results list some titles of listings are completely not displaied at all. Some others are. In general titles that are too long are getting cut short and lead to confusion.

Within the listing my theme’s shortcodes for layout are ignored and some headline layouts are completely ignored as well. The ability of layouting text within the listings is hit and miss. h3 titles for example just aren`t displaied, while they show fine on other parts of my theme.

Results are also limited to be shown on one page and stop after 8 entries. There is no way for the user to have an overview over all the entries.

In the end, the pugin is not doing what I hoped it would do, especially as the search is erratic.

What is the shortcode to show all listings on directory page?


Please see all shortcode here : http://e-plugin.com/directories/faq/


Thank you for earlier reply, last question how do I fix errors for the map. I keep getting a Javascript error

Please use right/ active map API key.


Hello! I need help to know how to change the Directory URL. Everything seems to mess up when I change it.

Or, Create a page and use the shortcode : [listing_layout_style_4]

Then you will get the sidebar.

I have just emailed you login info. I have tried creating a page with the shortcode but then when I change the url the directory does not show on the page. When you login you will see what I mean.

Please let me check.

Hello! I purchased the Directory Pro script for WP today. I have installed it on a new clean install of WP with Visual Composer.

Followed instructions for installation, but the default WP template still over-rides the layout, and I can’t seem to get the plugin to display properly. Please help. Thanks in advance.

I also installed the Enfold theme. http://www.delmarvafind.com

How can i use WPML whirh this plugin? I have qTranslate installed. I change the file but nothing happen.

You need to translate the .op file to your language.

I need a search functionalities in a widget area. I want to search listing by location with radius option. Is there any shortcode or widget to add this search option into a sidebar?

Any suggestion would be appreciate.

Thank you

Yes, the has a “Directory Search” widget. Please check your site widget page from wp-admin dashboard.


Hi, Just installed your plugin on my WP Website.

After activation, the site only show a blank page. What is the problem ? (I read the permalink thing but I don’t understant what you mean by “reset your permatink”

Thank you

It’s ok. Was a problem with another plugin



I have a lot of problems with your plugin, but there are two that really annoy me.

1 – the widget search does not work: when I click on “search”, it reloads the page where I am, nothing else 2 – I can not fully translate the plugin: the contact form is not fully translated and the opening hours remain in English.

For exemple : https://www.mobiendo.fr/annuaire/test-page-annuaire/


1. Can I check the search widget ? Please send me the link.

2, We will add day name to translation file in the next plugin update.


Do it work with wooCommerce

The plugin shall not support woo payment.


Is the source code encrypted?

No. The source code is not encrypted.



This plugin doesn’t fit to my needs because it doesn’t work on a child theme.

As a developper, I can’t work without a child theme.

Can you please do a refund on this order ? Thank you.

The plugin has child template option. If you keep the template folder in the main theme folder then it will not overwrite by any theme or plugin update.
