A superior and extendible Directory plugin to create beautiful location based business directories like Yelp, Tripadvisor or Yellow pages.
First, from my own experience and following others, the developers of GeoDirectory go out of their way to support their customers. They are truly passionate about making this product the best directory plugin/theme.
As a brand new product, I expected--and did encounter--a couple theme-related hiccups. However, the developers always answered my questions quickly and the issues were resolved.
I have used many free and paid software through the years but I can't say I have always received the same level of outstanding support as I have here.
I have tried virtually all the directory plugins available for WordPress and nothing comes close to this.
It has more features than any of the others, has a fantastic support team and is very easy to set up and use.
It has a very clean templating system and loads of hooks & filters for developers to use, so it's easy to modify to your requirements.
Out-of-the-box it works well with none of the headaches i got from other directory plugins.
If you're looking for a fully featured directory plugin that has the ability to cope with a large national/worldwide database, i believe this is the only plugin you should consider.
Although my experience with GeoDirectory was not what I expected in terms of speed in the delivery of the goods, I also understand that sometimes there are technical problems or glitches on websites which can lead to delays.
Delays can lead to frustration and given how frequent consumers are scammed these days a even more when you have already paid for something and you don't get it immediately, as a result you can become concerned and worried about losing your money.
I would like to retract my statesman of calling the people from GeoDirectory scammers. I rushed to conclusions. I would like apologize for that.
In fairness I would like to point out that that I bought GeoTheme previously and the transaction went smoothly and I never experienced any wrong doing from them.
In terms of the quality and functionality of the GeoTheme and GeoDirectory they are indeed excellent products. At not point I have questioned their quality. Nowadays both products offer the best solution for web directories.
I tried to delete and edit my previous comment but unfortunately WordPress doesn't allow it. I also contacted the moderator but they refused to delete it.
Please disregard my previous post.
Spent hours building a site to only find out that I have to spend 45 dollars to allow members to add their location. You have to add a 'Default' location and members have to live in that location only.
I have used many directory themes and software including some of the expensive ones but GeoDirectory provides you more flexibility and really cool features for the cheapest price possible.
If you're planning to build an online directory, GD should be number one on your list.
I've been building directory sites for the yoga and meditation community since 2006. We started with WordPress but moved to Drupal due to WP's limitations at the time (wow, how things have evolved!). We are now moving back to WP mainly because of this excellent plugin. This is directory done right. The plugin is relatively new, but the development team seems to be committed to continual improvement and is very responsive to feedback. The free offering is complete and definitely usable, but the paid upgrades offer reasonable value and a sustainable growth model. Overall, a fantastic bit of useful and time saving code.
Allows to create a totally customisable directory, local or regional or even bigger, using geolocation and gmaps. Real smart development, I am impressed.
By far this is the most outstanding plugin ever released in the wordpress community.
I have tested most directory themes out there but this plugin stands far ahead of them in terms of managing and scaling your site.
The response time and page loading is very good even on a shared hosting.
Location management is very standard as it uses optimized DB query.
It uses minimum memory consumption load using ajax query.
Above all it has lots of other features and addons that can easily added to the plugin from themetailors.
I tried all of them and this is the best at all. Perfect live support and very powerfull. If you are looking for the best map based business solution, here you go...
