HI! is there an option where only registered user can view the clients detailed page… and unregistered user only the first part?

That is not an option for this plugin.

HI good day! I want to buy this theme but would just ask 1 question. does it allow you to upload or import bunch of datas or listing in this theme? like I have a csv of my listing data. Thanks! :)

You’ll need to use a third party plugin and make sure that all of the fields are correctly mapped. I can’t promise which importer plugins will work.

but this plugin will allow to import csv? and it can allow logins for other people?

It should allow importing. What do you mean by logins from other people? If you have other users on your site with the right permissions, they will be allowed to see and edit the listings.

Hi, I have bought this theme awhile ago. but I’m having issues on installing this one. “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.” what to do? Thanks!

It’s not a theme, it’s a plugin. You need to go to Plugins->Add New-> Upload.

Hi there, quick question, do you know how to translate the “Previous Listings” at the bottom of the search results?

I have just submitted an update to CodeCanyon that should allow you to translate those links. You should get an email when the update is available.

Your demo site seems to be currently down. Is there another link to see a demo for your plugin?

Demo site is fixed.

No problem

First of all the link for the support website is not working

Oops! That page can’t be found.

It looks like nothing was found at this location. Maybe try one of the links below or a search?

My question is, is it possible to add a listing contact form? Is there any way to do it? Thank you

Thanks for letting me know. I’ll get that sorted out. Can you give me more details about what you want? Do you mean a contact form on a listing, or a form that allows users to create listings? Let me know.

I bought the Simple Directory Pro and have it installed. My question is when I click on Add a New Listing I don’t see the Featured Image so I can’t add a company logo. I do get the featured image in regular posts but not when trying to add a listing. How can I turn on Featured IMage?

This may be a limitation of your theme. Please send me a username and password for your site, as well as FTP credentials, and I’ll see if I can fix it.

Don’t post those here! Please send them to michael[at]lautman[dot]ca.

Hi. Pre-sale question: what payment methods are availible for customer, who want to pay for premium listing?

For the moment, the payment methods not fully functional. You will need a third-party plugin to do that. However, that feature will be part of the next major release, which will be available in a couple of months.

still issues with your support on your site…

but that said…

the pro version is causing issues when I try to “update” anything…ie create a new page…click publish…page goes to a white screen

same for updating or adding anything to the site…

ie updating a widget updating plugins

when I tried to uninstall and reinstall the plugin I get this error as well

The plugin generated 14 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.

it seems to update…if I back out and reload the item…ie edit page screen…

but I have to back out every time

Sorry to hear about the problems. Can you please send me login and FTP info for your site to michael[at]lautman[dot]ca? I’ll take a look.

Im sure there is a basic answer to this, but I want a page that just displays the categories. For example on my site – LS26.org.uk (a work in progress) the drop down menu LS26 Business Directory shows two categories I have created. When these categories are clicked on they correctly show the listings. However, if someone just clicks LS26 Business Directory and ignores the drop down menu it shows every listing in alphabetic order regardless of the category. What I want is for this to show only the categories and nothing else. Please help a wordpress nubile!

You need to create a page and use the [sdp_list_categories] to show all the categories. Let me know if you have any other questions.
