custompress and directory

Hi all

I am still new to wpmu dev and trying to figure all this out.

I’m developing a business / restaurant directory for our city where business owners will be able to login and add their own data a la google places.

Is Directory all I need for this or will custompress also help? I was thinking custompress will allow me to create post types for different business types as well as for softball leagues…. But when I installed both of these on my test site I seemed to have trouble.

First I couldn’t get the directory to just show up on the home page. Answers in the forum pointed me to custompress which I then installed. That seemed to duplicate everything that directory had just added.

So… do these not play well together? Do i need custompress?

Thanks

Lori
