I've been using this plugin for some time now on various sites and love it.
It's simple to set up and matches your theme fairly seamlessly.
Today though I had reason to ask for support. I had an answer back within the hour!
Excellent customer service!!
The plugin and the developer are great! Dave reacted fast and professionally on my problem and now everything works like I want it.
Works well on new WordPress version and offers great support when needed.
We have this plugin installed and we had an issue with something not working.
Like all plugins, there are a plethora of people out there with no clue of what they are doing and plugin creators have to create a method of weeding out the clueless to get to the folks who actually have an issue with the plugin itself - or with how wordpress deals with the plugin.
Once I got through that process, I got the plugin owner - Dave and his support team working on the issue directly and they identified the problem - NOT the plugin, but how WordPress was dealing with the plugin.
They gave advice and their solution worked. Good plugin, responsive support.
Use this Plugin! These people are doing it right. :)
This product looked to be the perfect solution for a client's site. I could import all their listings and images from their old application into the Business Directory. While the lists imported fine adding the images didn't work.
I posted the problem on Business Directory's forum and got an answer quickly. I sent them files and access to my project. The solution was in a new version of the software they coded to solve the problem.
Their response was great and dealing with them was great. I wish other plugin suppliers were this good.
Thank you Dave and the entire staff at BDP for all the advice and help provided. The response time was amazing and the care shown was exemplary.
So I just got Business Directory Plugin back up and running on my site after a few days with a mad glitch. Great way to start a review, I know, but it happens. What matters here is that Business Directory Plugin has done everything that it has set out to do and when a problem came, the developers were dedicated to fixing it up.
Granted, I bought the premium plugin, which is really the only way you'll make money with the plugin aside from establishing your own gateway. However, for the price, I'm still further ahead. No, even with the free version, this business directory plugin is a snap to set up and use.
Excellently-written instructional materials. I'm needing no outside help so far, except for getting Recaptcha into html code. That's saying alot, since I'm no tech type— just a boomer-aged microbiz owner.
Support— Excellent so far.
I've just finished creating my first, bare-bones directory. Took me the better part of a day. Faster than I expected, since even a simple directory is complex to create.
I opted for the free Categories Module, and uploaded photos to represent each category. Looking great! This is starting to feel fun.
To pre-test, I've submitted my own biz listing. It operated exactly according to settings I chose.
I'm now inviting my first listing by an outside biz, before I publish my directory and invite more listers. Let's see how that goes...
I've selected all the self-help settings offered, for my listing owners to use. Hope that keeps things low-maintenance for me!
I'll probably get the reasonably-priced upgrade package, to enable search by region and zipcode. And more cool features.
I tried a few WordPress Business Directory Plugins and is by far the best and excellent support too. The directory works well with Yoast SEO and the additional Google Maps Plugin was excellent value for money
Love the plugin and all the work that goes into making this plugin so great. They also have amazing customer support. The dev team is polite, quick with their responses and get the job done.
Thank you and keep it up!
