    [Title de-capitalized, please do not shout at us]

    Hi

    I am looking to use a template theme to setup a new website in the maintenance sector. If a user is searching for a maintenance or building work that they require to be carried out then register and the site will provide them with several specialist in the area.

    Can one please tell me if there is a suitable template theme available for this if not can someone advise how best to proceed..

    Thanks alot.

    This type of website is a directory website, so first thing you'll want to do is to search for something along the lines of "wordpress directory theme" or something like that.

  3. If you mean search engine then hands down that's the last thing you ever want to do.

    There is a lot of Really Bad Themes™ out there and you do not want to use a search engine to find those.

    Start with this site instead.

    Hi

    Thanks for your input.

    Much appreciated. I will try searching for a directory theme as that sounds like what i require. In short what i want the site to do is as follows:

    User searches the website for suitable maintenance service specialist.

    They enter there requirements in form a of a checklist and postcode

    This lead is then sent to 5 suitable trademen either by the customer selecting them via shortlist or the system selects them manually.

    Either way the 5 trademen pay for the lead and the customer make a selection.

    Site makes its money via the lead that are sent to each specalist and not directly from the customer who posted the job.

    In short exactly like mybuilder.com but in a different industry

    Does anyone know if there is a suitable template and additional plugins that can do this.

    Please let me know.

    Thanks again
