A superior and extendible Directory plugin to create beautiful location based business directories like Yelp, Tripadvisor or Yellow pages.
The support team answers questions in less than an hour and provide helpful insights on how to achieve desired outcomes.
Plugin features are varied and useful. However, the admin interface does not allow all the freedom one could wish for.
I have tested a lot of WordPress directory plugins and by far GeoDirectory is the best I have used! It is flexible and developer friendly.
Seriously, if you are looking for the best directory plugin you have found it here, and if you are looking for the best customer or technical service look no further, GeoDirectory is by far the best. You wont be sorry, so I highly recommend GeoDirectory for it`s superb customer service and user friendly and fully featured directory plugin.
This plugin does a great job out of the box. The plugin's UX is very intuitive and there are some videos available on YouTube that walk you through a basic setup. Setting up a simple single city directory can easily be accomplished without upgrading to the premium version.
However, the premium subscription plan is a steal if you are serious about monetizing your directory. It gives you access to all of the add-ons, which are very powerful. New add-ons are constantly being developed and are released fairly often.
The only place I'd say this plugin is lacking is in official documentation for developers. The plugin is easy to extend to your needs but finding the correct hooks can be cumbersome if you are not familiar with the code. Having said that, the support from Stiofan, Paulo and their team is excellent, and they are happy to point you in the right direction. As a result, their support forum is brimming with useful code snippets and examples. Usually you just need to dig a little to find what you're looking for.
Works fine and support is good...
This is a great plugin and the team behind it is very supportive. I tested the free version and decided to make a purchase because it is exactly what i was looking for and I wanted the support which is quick and efficient. The price is also very reasonable and well deserved. There are some features I would like to see added but the core functionality covers what a directory / Geo directory should do. Overall I'm happy.
I looked everywhere for a plugin to do exactly what GeoDirectory does, and I was so excited when I finally found GD. I use the whole suite of plugins, don't expect to get the full functionality without the investment, but it is absolutely worth it, because....
The customer support is amazing. Anytime there is a question, a bug, an incompatibility, or a necessary tweak, the developers are available to answer, fix, work around, or provide a customization.
I couldn't be happier.
I am using the GD plugin with all the other plugins and they are all great and getting better every update.
The support team is very helpful with all the tweaks.
This plugin is made for people who are clueless about anything in terms of how to code something themselves, the base plugin is extremely limited in terms of things you can actually do which means your pressed into paying for additional addons which are over priced and don't offer the features you expect.
There is very sparse documentation and feature requests are based on most popular only where the website claims things like "GeoDirectory provides all hooks and filters needed for any developers to extend every aspect of the application. Need more? Just ask and we will add them." this is not the case they will not just add hooks that are not there and there is not even a list of existing hooks available.
If you have a couple days you would be far better off making your own custom post types and using advanced custom fields to achieve what this plugin does.
This is truly a great plug-in to use if you are looking for a map with good search functions. I used the core plug-in with the advanced Search add on.
I think the service for this plugin is amazing: very honest, with humor, quick responses and as a newby here I have never felt like I was asking stupid questions. They really take the help forums for plugins and themes to a whole new level. It has made my life so much easier and I have an extremely pretty website, also thanks to this great plugin.
