    Hi - I have taken a look at the admin area for the plugin and it looks really good. However I am still having problems exporting and importing 1000 listings from sabai. I resorting to downloading and zipping the image files via FTP but when I come to import it hangs at 4%. Do you offer a payable service for exporting around 1500 listings (in 3 sabai directories) into 3 new 'directories pro' directories, within the same site? Thanks Gail

    Hello, It seems like you are trying to import directory settings, and not content. In order to import directory content, you will first need to create a directory. Please see the following documentation for more details on creating a directory: https://directoriespro.com/documentation/getting-started/creating-your-first-directory.html

    After creating your directory, you can import content: https://directoriespro.com/documentation/exporting-and-importing-directories/exporting-and-importing-content.html

    I know because of layout you felt that cropping the featured image to a portrait photo works best. However can the featured image for the listing thumbnail be 6x4 ratio? Can other images be added to the individual listing??

    Hello, Our plugin uses the following code to register the image dimension for thumbnails used in our plugin:

    add_image_size('drts_thumbnail', 240, 180, true);
    
    You can simply override this by adding the following code to functions.php of your theme (child theme) for example (240 x 160 px, no cropping):
    add_action('init', function() {
        add_image_size('drts_thumbnail', 240, 160);
    });

    Hello, Thank you for you interest in Directories Pro. 1. We do not have any report with that theme however we do have to admit that we can not be 100% sure if all themes are compatible with Directories Pro since there are thousands of themes out there. However we have kept our plugin to be unobtrusive as possible and most themes should work fine with our plugin out of the box. 2. All the features you see on the demo site is included.

    Hi onokazu, excited to be your customer again (I alrd purchased Sabai Directory with another account). Sabai Directory is cool but I need a full multi-functions plugin for directories, finally I found ur Directories Pro again haha. Thanks for making this awesome plugin! Anw, do you have some ideas for this:

    • 1) Bookings for listing: I want my customers can book an appointment in a listing to the owner. Do you have some ideas as use which plugin?
    • 2) Events for listing: Somehow maybe I would use your listing as Event too, use Reference to connect them together. But I still want your recommend. Cause in my language can not call Listings = Places = Events, they will misleading about Listings! I want event as another custom post-type and can Reference with your listing.
    • 3) Themes: I want to find some themes with color-button to CTA for your plugin, could you plz recommend some?
    • 4) Multi-listings: Why the Sabai Directory have multi-listing as Businesses, Restaurants, Stores and this one no have? Cause I want to make some as Properties, Events, Places, Stores, ...

    Hello, Thank you for your interest in Directories Pro. > 1) Bookings for listing: I want my customers can book an appointment in a listing to the owner. Do you have some ideas as use which plugin? Unfortunately no, however it is possible to add shortcode content to the listing page. If there is any booking plugin that lets you add booking functionality through a shortcode, then it may work. 2) You can rename listings to anything you like from the backend of the plugin. 3) You can change the color of buttons through custom CSS. 4) Are you referring to the multi-directory feature? Directories Pro does let you create multiple directories. https://directoriespro.com/documentation/getting-started/creating-your-first-directory.html

    Hi there, we've just purchased the plugin and have two queries. Firstly, most of our users are going to be in China, and google (including google maps) is banned there, so it will be next to impossible to use google maps. Is it possible to use another type of map. It'd be greatly appreciated if so. Secondly, for listings, the social media options can we add a social media type for the popular chinese app 'WeChat'? Right now twitter, facebook etc are shown but not wechat.

    Hello, Unfortunately version 1.1 of the plugin supports Google Maps only. Native support for OpenStreetMap will come in version 1.2 of the plugin. If you are interested, you can try out the development build by following the instructions in this FAQ: https://codecanyon.net/item/directories-pro-for-wordpress/21800540/faqs/32480 > Secondly, for listings, the social media options can we add a social media type for the popular chinese app ‘WeChat’? Right now twitter, facebook etc are shown but not wechat. Please take a look at the following FAQ for instructions on adding a custom social media account: https://codecanyon.net/item/directories-pro-for-wordpress/21800540/faqs/32424 We will also see if we can have WeChat ready by default in the later version of the plugin.

    So the only thing I'm completely stuck on is the featured listing part on the home page. We've been using homepage control but the featured listing section doesnt seem to be updating. I've been trying to create several listings that are featured via the back end way. Each time I list them as featured it says that I've updated them buut when I go to the home page they dont appear on the featured listings section. Not sure why. Please advise.

    Glad that you were able to sort out most of the issues! As for the last issue, since the content generated by homepage control is cached so can you try clearing the cache from Directories -> System -> Tools and see if that resolves the issue.

It didn't work and instead on computers it is displayed at the bottom of the page. How can I change this? While doing this somehow the information such as opening hours, date of establishment etc which was listed on the right hand side of the listings page on the demo site and before on mine has somehow changed. I didnt do anything to change it except add the contact form. Please advise asap as these two issues (plus the two mentioned above) have greatly impacted the overall look and finish of our site.

However with the latest version 1.1.32, the extension is no longer required.

    As written in the documentation, if you do not see the domains or any strings registered, don't worry since they will get registered once you actually view or edit the strings on backend or frontend pages of your directory.

    Pre Sale Questions: 1. What I am looking for is a directory of psychologists and coaches. There will be two categories one for each. The categories will include listings. Each listing is like a resume with details about education, experience, specialisations, area of practice, locations of clinic and working hours for each clinic. Users should be able to submit a review for each listing. 2. I will need the experience, education and location fields to be repeater fields as in a user should be able to add as many of these options as they would like to add by clicking something like a + icon. 3. Experience and education would include multiple input fields. For example education would include: Degree, Year of Completion, University name. 4. The resumes / listings should be searchable based on multiple criteria’s like location, specialisation… 5. Locations (which will be a repeater field) from listings needs to be plotted on google map and should be searchable via the search form. 6. I also need the option to assign Coaches and Psychologists to an institute or centre. So the way it would work is that a institute can have multiple psychologist and each psychologist would have a listing. On the individual psychologist page, details about the institute they are associated to along with the link to the institute page is present. And on the institute page along with the details of the institute, the least of all psychologists associated with it and a link to all the blog posts created by the associated psychologists. Of the above features, which one's does the plugin already have and which one's the plugin does not have.

    Hello, Locations are not categories, so can you make sure that you have created locations from the Location section of your directory? Also state and city will not display unless you select country, if country is at the top level of the location hierarchy. We also recommend clearing the cache from Directories -> System -> Tools using the "Clear cache" tool.

    Thank you for your answer. There are a few more questions: 1/. It is mentioned in your plugin front page that a permalink will be generated. Suppose the listing is ABC Restaurant in Osaka and listed under a directory called "Dining" in mysite.com. So will the permalink be: https://www.mysite.com/listings/dining/abc-restaurant/osaka/ Or have I understood it wrongly and it will be something else? 2/. Also, will a user "John Doe" review of a listing be like: https://www.mysite.com/listings/dining/abc-restaurant/osaka/review-john-doe-20180618/ or it will be part of the listing post? 3/. Another concern is about the sitemap. Will the directories and listings be listed under a separate sitemap or will they conform with WP hierarchy and become a part of the main sitemap? Thank you for your work in bringing to the WP community such well thought out plugins and I look forward to making good use of this one.

So will the permalink be: https://www.mysite.com/listings/dining/abc-restaurant/osaka/ Or have I understood it wrongly and it will be something else? By default, that will be https://www.mysite.com/dining/listing/abc-restaurant, but you can customize it so that it can be something like https://www.mysite.com/restaurant/osaka/abc-restaurant If Osaka has a parent location term "Japan" for example, you can also make the URL hierarchical so it can be https://www.mysite.com/restaurant/japan/osaka/abc-restaurant The "restaurant" part above is just for example and you can change it to anything you wish. > 2/. Also, will a user “John Doe” review of a listing be like: > https://www.mysite.com/listings/dining/abc-restaurant/osaka/review-john-doe-20180618/ > or it will be part of the listing post? The URL of a review for the listing will be https://www.mysite.com/dining/listing/abc-restaurant/reviews/123 (where 123 is the post ID of the review), and this may not be customized currently. > 3/. Another concern is about the sitemap. Will the directories and listings be listed under a separate sitemap or will they conform with WP hierarchy and become a part of the main sitemap? There isn't any sitemap generated by WordPress by default. Is it the sitemap feature of the WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast? If so, since Directories Pro utilizes WordPress standard custom post types and listings are a custom post type, they are visible in the sitemap just like posts and pages of WordPress.
