Feature-rich plugin with lots of great options!
By , for WP 3.8.1

We are investigating a plugin for use on a couple new sites that can do what this plugin can do. Only issue so far is that we have a smaller host who is very sensitive about security, so we had to open up some permissions for the plugin to upload CSV files. Then I had to request a patch for the CSV downloads, but replies from developer were fast and the plugin is working great now!

Still testing to be sure the plugin features will meet all our needs and if so we will be contributing to the great work by the developer(s).

The best directory plugin I've found by far!

Very Responsive Author
By ,

I have to say that I'm surprised at the few negative reviews I've read. Not only do I find this plugin, including the premium modules which I *happily* paid for, to do precisely what the advertising indicates, but the creator of the plugin has been *very* quick to respond to my questions. So far, I haven't needed him for any actual support because, again, the plugin works as advertised.

I did have to spend a little time customizing some regions to suit my needs, but it was a pretty specific requirement that I didn't really expect to be universally available in the first place. I was just happy that the author including a quick and easy method for adding large groups of sub-regions.
I bought the additional modules as a business investment and felt that I got a great value for my money. This set of plugins got me 95% of the way to my envisioned site without any custom programming on my part at all!
Very happy!

Out of the box, it's almost perfect!
By , for WP 3.8.1

I purchased the paid Directory plugin by WPMU Dev and had nothing but problems that required things like changing the PHP templates. It was really not meant to be a stand alone plugin that works easily with other themes. I wasted days with their customer support to finally give up to try another solution. I was glad to find Business Directory and was able to get things figured out and running in far less time. It's a superior plugin and I can tell that the developer(s) have paid careful attention to the details in making it easy for mediocre people like me to use.

So far, this is the best, most robust directory plugin I've seen. For the cost, you can't beat it, as it's nice to try a premium plugin at no cost before paying more for upgrades. It's plugins like these that make me happy to pay more for things like the PayPal module later on, if things go well.

So much better than the competition
By , for WP 3.8.1

We bought another directory to use on our site because it was less expensive. Well, we had nothing but problems so researched again and ended up with the Business Directory.

It is so much better than the one we used previously and the support is awesome. Dave goes the extra mile to make sure it works well for you. We had some minor problems in the beginning, mostly our fault, but Dave got us up and running very quickly.

If you need a directory for your site, I don't think you will find a better one available than the Business Directory.

The best out there so far? Oooooh Yes!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Have been using this plugin with some of its premium features and it does the job nice and simple, could be some added features like allowing businesses to post updates and also maybe have a badge system so they can share their page easily else where?

But otherwise this does the job its made to do, so five out of five from me :)

Excellent Customer Support
By , for WP 3.6.1

We are using both the Business Directory Plugin as well as the paid Paypal module for a client. We had some issues in getting our renewal notices out as the system was setting the expiration date one year from when the listing was created and the client needed all listings to expire on the same date at the end of the year.

I worked with Dave and his team letting them know exactly what we needed and their support was awesome! They were able to add the ability to manually change the expiration date and everything has been running smoothly ever since.

Thank you for everyone's exceptional support!
