Support » Plugin: Directorist - Business Directory Plugin » Cannot include slider or video in editor for client listing

  • Resolved Khinson6


    Great Plugin and a lot less complicated to learn compared to others, but I would still like to see better documentation regarding situations such as turning off the add Listing widget and why I cannot regain that lost page space on the right side, meaning.

    Also, did you create the plugin so we cannot add shortcodes, Sliders or Video inside the Editor section when setting up a client listing?

    I have no problem at all with adding photos and graphics, but Sliders and Videos just show the code, and it happens in both my Localhost development website and the live online version of the website. If there is a way to include these elements it would be a really big deal for my purpose, it has been a selling point of my to local merchants with the Old plugin I was thinking about using. Please help I’m sort of running out of time and have to report whether I can produce these features inside the client listing on Monday and Tuesday of this coming week.

    I know this is a free plugin, and I appreciate you very much, but I still need this feature to work, so any help you can give me will be GREATLY APPRECIATED! TRULY!

    And, thank you again for a really great plugin.

    Hello KH,

    Thank you very much for your kind words and using the Directorist Plugin.

    Thank you for letting us know about these two issues. Considering your urgency and happiness, we have fixed the two issues today urgently and we are going to release a new version (v3.1.0) of the plugin tomorrow.

    What we have done regarding your issues:
    1. You will be able to disable the “submit a listing widget” from the directory settings > General Settings > Home. And if you do disable submit a listing widget and you do not use any other widget on the listing sidebar, then your listing will automatically use the full-width/available space on the page. So, this fixes the first issue you were facing.

    2. We coded the plugin in a way that it may be compatible with any theme easily. Therefore, there were some complications parsing shortcodes or embedding any video links. So, we have worked on it today. Now you can show any shortcode inside the content including video, slider and whatever you like. 🙂

    As you have once again demonstrated that you are truly committed to this plugin, and just as importantly the level of customer service you provide, with a FREE Plugin I must add, it would be foolish and ungrateful on my part to not at least say THANK YOU AGAIN!

    The structure of this whole WordPress community is nothing more than a host of worldwide mini-partnerships such as ours, and I wanted you to know today that I appreciate ours very much. I’m an old Radio Broadcaster who knows the true value of a good business alliance and from my short time using your plugin and looking to you for support to make it work for my needs, well I believe we have such a relationship.

    Thank you again and keep up the hard work.

    Are you still planning to post an updated version of the plugin today? I’m really anxious to see how it works with everything else before I say anything to the local business community.

    I know this is a free plugin, and I’m not trying to rush you, as I said, I’m just excited about the chance to add those elements to the client area of the Listings, and that will make this plugin truly awesome.


    I just saw that you uploading the v 3.1.0 of the plugin, I’ve really excited, just updated mine and will keep you posted once I finish testing it out.
