    I just installed Business Directory for a friend. Thanks for a great software. I am using WordPress 3.6.1 and BD Version 3.1.1 . I have a few questions

    Please note that I am not a programmer but am able to figure out WordPress and can FTP into the server.

    1. How can I change the colors of the buttons such as that of the Submit A Listing, View Listings and Directory? You can see current directory here: http://www.artilient.com/business-directory/ . The same question is for buttons such as View in the Listings page here: http://www.artilient.com/business-directory/?action=viewlistings

    2. Now, on the main Directory page, I gave an introduction to the Directory as sown here: http://www.artilient.com/business-directory/ - why does that introduction text show up on other pages too such as for Submit Listings: http://www.artilient.com/business-directory/?action=submitlisting or View Listings: http://www.artilient.com/business-directory/?action=viewlistings or in Listings: http://www.artilient.com/business-directory/143/attendingdr/ - how can I remove the intro text so that it only appears on: http://www.artilient.com/business-directory/

    3. If you look at one of the listings here: http://www.artilient.com/business-directory/143/attendingdr/ - you will see that the Page Title only shows Business Directory. Instead, I would like it to show the name of the company in the listing. How would I change that?

    4. I would like to offer my users the ability to upload a video also as part of their listings - how can I enable it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi raj_agarwal,

    1) You can use custom CSS, as described in our FAQ. Here is an article about how to use custom CSS with Business Directory in a way that doesn't get overwritten on upgrade of BD: http://businessdirectoryplugin.com/support-forum/faq/how-to-use-custom-styles-with-bd-2-1/

    2) The reason that text shows on all pages is that the Directory page with the short code is used to output all pages in Business Directory. So whatever you put on that page beside the shortcode will show up on all. You can't have the selective text without doing some programming to make it only show on one page, or somehow hacking that into the plugin itself.

    3) "Business Directory" is the title of the page for your directory, so this is related to #2 above--we use the same page for output of all BD pages, and your WP theme wants to output the title for this page instead of the title of your listing. To fix that, you'd have to create a custom theme page that doesn't output the page title but instead uses the listing title. Probably something for a programmer.

    4) You can upload videos on your listings in the Long Description fields according to the rules for WordPress embedding. See this article for more details: http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds
