I tried a couple of other directory plugins before this, and ended up uninstalling them.
Business Directory Plugin is the first I found that really does the job. The documentation is great, it was easy to install and configure, and it's feature-rich.
I did encounter one problem, and the support programmer actually logged in to my site to track it down and fix it. Incredible support!
I'm about to launch my first site built on this plugin, and I have three more in the planning stages!

I am so glad I purchased the Business Directory from a group of developers who know what they are doing instead of a designer.
I've purchased many plugin and had issues with most and no one took the time that Dave's group took to resolve the issue and provided instruction on how to fix it from my side.

Always so nice to find exactly what you're looking for in a plugin. After beating my head against the wall to find a solution I was so pleased to find BD be the ideal solution for my project. Not just that, the team here answered the few questions I did have, very quickly and with a very personal touch. You can tell that this is a top notch group behind this plugin. Will be upgrading to the paid solutions here shortly for another project. Highly recommended.
It does not have microdata (schema markup)for the business listing address, locality, region. This is a feature that I've personally asked about. I was told it's a future update...hope they make it happen soon because I really like the plugin and the response from the author.
does exactly what I need!
I just want to thank you for a great plug-in. I just wish that I hadn't wasted $80 on a different theme along with 3 days of pain trying to set the other theme up. The Business Directory theme was very easy for me to get set up. If I hadn't wasted the money on the other theme, I would have had the money to get the PayPal and Claim Listing modules that I need.
My only issue is that I cannot get the CSV import to work even though I followed the directions. I even tried a test import of a partial list of the 7,600 listings that I would like to import. It looks like I will be awhile hand entering all of the listings.
I am very positively surprised after testing other plugins, to find this one as easy, complete and just working the way I need it, even as free version it gets me there. This alone makes me want - to upgrade. :)
I've been using the paid product over two years now and believe that this is the best directory plugin for wordpress out there. It's not only a great product, but it is backed up by a great service. Their support extends way beyond the purchasing time, through the life of your relationship with them.
I've had numerous issues in setting up BD only because of my technical incapacity but have found the backup and support from Dave and his developers to be the best I have experienced. Total and efficient support, rapidly delivered and with great results. Can't speak highly enough. Two thumbs up here!
Business Directory has worked well on a couple of different themes that I have used and I am now also using the Maps plugin which also is easy to use and looks really good.
But what I have been really impressed with is the level of support that Dan has given me. He didn't go on the defensive with the problem and require that I do 150 things before he would even look at it - no, he just sorted it out. Within 24 hours I had a fix.
Dan really couldn't have been more helpful - it is so important to have good support when you have a live website. Thanks Dan!
