Best theme for developing the plugin directory

Hello, wanted to ask that question of yours (or other recomendéis I) for development of a business directory with geo location.

Wanted to carry out a development consisting following.

A directory of businesses in the same thematic classified by categories. Within this directory there will be two different levels companies. Free and Premium. I downloaded the plugin and also the Membership Directory (I do not know if this is needed). I wanted to know which topic you advise me to develop this I do something like this http://onlinedemo.sitemile.com/?theme=buzzler tried this theme but I fall short, so I hired your membership.

Premium Companies pay through Paypal with a subscription appellant would have to send the bill also email it automatically, to sell advertising, etc..

Please themes and plugins that you advise me to do this install directory.

Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi @Manuel

    Welcome to the forums!

    Unfortunately, the Directory plugin enables you to select from either free or paid listings. You cannot choose both.

    However, it does have a built-in credit system that users can use to pay for their listings. You can set the amount of credits required for each listing. Users can purchase additional credits through PayPal or Authorize.net. You can even gift new users with any number of credits you like so they can effectively place some ads just for signing up.

    The Directory plugin also comes pre-packaged with a theme designed specifically for it. You will need to download the plugin folder to your computer, unzip it, and locate the themes folder inside. Then upload the default theme to your site and enable it. But Directory should work just fine with any theme that respects WordPress coding standards.

    To display maps for each listing, install also our Google Maps plugin. Then create a custom field in CustomPress (also included with the Directory plugin), associate it with the directory_listing post type, and add the name of that custom field to the corresponding box in Google Maps (screenshot).

    Hi @Scott

    Hope you had a good weekend!

    It's best to start a new thread if your question is not directly related to the original topic. But I'll answer your question here anyway this time :slight_smile:

    Geo location, and map mashups, are options that can be easily integrated with our Google Maps plugin: https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/wordpress-google-maps-plugin/

    Here's a thread to give you all the juicy details on setting it up:
