DirectoryPlus - Business Directory

DirectoryPlus - Business Directory

DirectoryPlus is the new generation of our previous business directory script that has sold hundreds of copies here on Codecanyon with mostly positive reviews. Based on DirectoryApp, it was completely rewritten to make code leaner and faster and also incorporate the latest version of the Bootstrap framework which is now on version 4. The front end was rewritten as well to remove hundreds of unnecessary CSS lines, making it easier to modify and customize the theme as well as adding new features.

Bootstrap based design

DirectoryPlus uses Bootstrap 4’s layout grid, components and utilities extensively and it has a very neutral theme that can easily adapt to several business types. This also makes it easy for third party designers to make layout modifications because they only need to be familiar with the Bootstrap framework.

Custom Fields

DirectoryPlus allows you to create “Custom Fields” on the category level or create global custom fields. For example, you can create a “Delivery (yes/no)” field and it shows up only for listings in the “Food” category. Or you can create a “Free Wi-fi” field to let users search for listings that offer free wi-fi. Custom fields can be required/optional and also searchable.

Monetize Your Directory

Flexible pricing plans allows you to create one time payments as well as monthly and annual recurring subscriptions. Current payment gateways supported are:

  • Paypal
  • Stripe

Claim Listings

With this feature you can kickstart your directory by creating listings and let business owners claim and pay for the listings so that they can edit, correct and add additional information.

Create Pages

DirectoryPlus comes with a CMS system that allows you to create blog posts and pages and uses the popular TinyMCE wysiwyg editor. You can define whether to show a post in the feed, if not, it will be a stand alone page.

Map Providers

DirectoryPlus supports multiple map providers: Mapbox, HERE, TomTom, Wikimedia, OpenStreetMap and Google Maps. You can choose one or multiple ones. If you select multiple map providers DirectoryPlus will randomly select one on every page load. Useful if you want to take advantage of the free usage quotas of multiple map providers.

Coupons

Allow business owners to create coupons for deals and discounts. Users can browse all coupons available on the site.

Business Logos

Each business can upload its own logo to show up as their main image on the directory. Logos will show in the results pages (search, categories, cities, etc) and on the business page as the main image next to the business name.

Fast Loading Times

Directory Plus was designed with loading speed in mind. All pages load fast, including the admin area which will almost never show you spinning animations that impact your productivity.

Fully Brandable

DirectoryPlus is a standalone PHP script that doesn’t require any other CMS platform. If you are building a directory for your client, it will not show that you are using another platform such as Wordpress.

  • Restaurants and bars directory
