Business Directory Plugin allows you to build local directories, business provider listings, Yellow-Pages style business directories, Yelp-like review
The Plugin worked as advertised, and when I had questions the team responded very quickly.
I needed a plugin to create a small business directory on my website. I discovered this plugin. After a couple of minor issues Dave and his team were happy to help me out. One of the quickest and reliable group of people I've had the pleasure dealing with. A great plugin matched with superb customer service.
Thank you to Dave and the team.
Easy to configure and works without problems.
Even if is advertised as SEO friendly, this plugin is not compatible with SEO plugins available on WordPress.
I have used this plugin on several sites and think it is awesome. Tried using others but none of them match up. Easy to manipulate to fit into any theme, runs well with other plugins. Definitely one of my favorite, go-to plugins. Thanks.
Briefly: This will probably work well for you if you have a default wordpress site with no additional plugins running. As basic of a site as possible really.
For the rest of us however:
I have run into bug after bug after bug with this thing. Not kidding I'd get one issue fixed and 3 more would sprout up.
Map wont display because I have a google map on a seperate section of the site.
Ratings wont work because I am using a spam blocking plugin???? etc etc.
It was also the building of this plugin was really not done well at all. For example, form fields when displayed are no given unique class names automatically such as "#search-field 01, #search-field 02, #search-field 03" but instead are all just globally assigned "form-label". If you are hoping to do any real form of CSS design customization this plugin is a complete mess.
Every time I have ever had an issue and i post on the forums the answer I get from the developer is:
"Post Screenshots please" (Im not going to take a screenshot and upload it just to show you a screenshot of my map not appearing. How would that even be helpful?)
"Disable all plugins" (This one drove me up the wall. It appears as though not only do I hate this plugin but other plugins hate it as well and they treat him like crap. Nothing work in conjunction with this stupid thing.)
Im seriously over it. Next time a client asks me for a business directory I'm going to tell them to look elsewhere. Wow.
The BEST Business Directory Plugin. I have used others, many with Joomla sites and never had one that worked as well out of the box as the Business Directory Plugin.
There are some great additions in the roadmap of this plugin in the future. If you are looking to implement a Business Directory on your website, I could recommend no other than this Business Directory Plugin.
Free plugins are great, but a lot of times you end up being on your own if you can't figure something out. I was really impressed with the support I received when I emailed with a question. The response was prompt and they stuck with it until they found an answer. (Of course it wasn't an issue with the plugin!)
Thanks again! Will definitely be making upgrades soon.
This is a really solid, great plugin with a lot of great features. And what's even better (and the best in my opinion) is the support that is offered. The developers really go out of their way to help with any questions and are very friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Business Directory no question!
After all the years of roaming around for a quality plugin, its now when i feel i found the right one that really works. Great work, development team and only one word for their support i.e AWESOME. Good luck guys, meanwhile i may rock with the plugin.
