[Plugin: WP BUSINESS DIRECTORY MANAGER] Customising CSS (3 posts)

    Themestown - sorry I'm back with another question. This time its about customising the layout of the forms with CSS. I'm wondering if there is a way I can do it without losing my changes when I upgrade the plugin.

    I'm sorry if this is a more general WordPress question. I know with other plugins such as Nextgen Gallery I was able to move the css file into my theme folder and then that overwrites the one in the plugin directory but I tried that with yours and no joy. I'm guessing a function needs to be created for it to work though.

    I'm also thinking about changing the layout of the list of categories in the listing page - maybe even storing them all in a dropdown box as there is so many of them it takes up a lot of space on the page. However to change that I imagine I will need to go into the code in wpbusdirman.php and then no doubt any upgrade will overwrite my changes.

    Anyway I don't mean to ask you to change anything to make this work - I'm just wondering is it actually possible.

    Thanks again!

    @akingston47, sorry for taking so long to answer. I'll see about the upgrade issue as it's likely to cause a hassle for everyone who makes custom changes to the css file having those changes overwritten with ever upgrade. It shouldn't be a hassle to have the plugin check for a custom css file outside of the plugin directory. I'll see if the same can be done for the template files found in the posttemplates folder. This way you will be able to change the category layout without losing your changes when you update. Since its something that can benefit everyone I have no problem changing it.

    Hi Themestown,

    Thank you for making this available, and I'll make a donation and look forward to future updates.

    Before implementing this on the Live site, I think these are easy questions, I hope:
    1) I am getting different error messages about AJAX (on Mac/Firefox and Safari); "An ajax error occured while adding your listing. Please reload the page and try again.".... although the form actually submits succesfully... and then "An ajax error occured. Please reload the page and try again." or "An ajax error occured while searching. Please reload the page and try again." on the user search.

    * also note the spelling errors in the error message also:)

    2) Can we reduce the characters allowed to 250 in the description, makes for better listing?

    3) Can the pagination be changed to 15 listings per page, also makes for better listing?

    I have moderate tech skills so I should be able to find the code to make changes myself if needed... as long as you can point me in the right direction.
