  • Resolved ilj99



    I have been impressed with Business Directory plugin, but I am looking for something that does not seem to be available.

    I allow users to submit listings on my website using BDP. Is there a way to add the user’s name that submits the listing to the listing, so that other people looking at the listing know who submitted it?

    Hi @ilj99,

    Sorry that you ran into issues here!

    That info isn’t present by default, but you can do a simple template override and add that to the listing display pretty easily with some PHP code.

    Here’s how to setup a custom template override for BD:

    Try that and let me know if you run into more issues.



    Thanks for the response. I am pretty new to this, so still unsure of what exactly to do.

    When a user registers with my website, they enter their business name in a form field (using ultimate member for that). When a user submits a listing, I would like for that user to automatically be associated with that listing.

    I want to then be able to include the business name (of the person who submitted the listing) in the listing view (for the individual listing details, not the list of all listings).

    Could you please explain more? Thanks

    Hi @ilj99,

    For something like that, it will require some code–and probably some help from Ultimate Member to find that data. The template override documentation I provided above will help you find a place to put that, but the code is something you’ll have to work out.

    If that’s beyond your current skillset, there are a few great resources to help you out here.

    2) Codeable, which has WordPress expert developers available for short-term projects:
