Reviews

Very good

Very good plugin, excellent support, takes a while to get it looking good on your site, but worth it.

Missing a couple of things that would make it 5 stars, but hopefully over time developers will add more features and it will be 5 stars without doubt.

Mature Plugin

GeoDirectory has really eveolved and has become a mature plugin.

The free version is a good starter to build a directory website with Map and Review content.

Really good job, thanks.

Great Product & Support

GeoDirectory is a great plugin with superior features compared to the other directory plugins. Its addon’s gives you all you need to run a complete turnkey directory. In addition, the support is prompt and they go way beyond normal service. Not only do they quickly response to bugs and issues, we are willing to actively implement customers recommendations to make the product more robust. I have implemented a lot of directories on the market and nothing so far compares to geodirectory when it comes to product and service. I give them an easy 5 stars.

Great Support Team

Apart from the top-notch plugins and themes, their support team is just fabulous.Whenever I got stuck somewhere they were more than happy to help.

Even once when a 3rd party plugin started creating problems which Geodirectory team doesn’t hold any liability of.They happily came forward to help me sorting out the problem.This Support Team is always ready to take a bullet for you.I Bet! 🙂

Highly recommend for directory builders

This directory builder has been everything I wanted and more. I am not a programmer or server administrator, so the trial and error of setting up and customizing options has probably taken me longer than other users, but the forum support and documentation are very good. The forum support from the admins has been incredibly timely and I have always had my questions fully answered. I have the full membership so that I have access to all the add-ons. Highly recommend 🙂
