    Hi Tushar,

    I just installed this plugin myself and what I would suggest is that you set up your categories to match the content you are planning to add to your site. I found that the documentation was a little out of date but still understandable, it can be found here:

    The site you mentioned seems to have a sign-in and search bar as part of the theme so that would be how you’d do that part but I’m not sure what you’d need to add to the theme for that, I don’t see any shortcodes in the documentation but I will have a look around, it would be handy for me to know for my site too.

    I hope that’s enough to get you started and will let you know what I find regarding adding the search and login area to the theme.

    I knew I’d seen it somewhere! Here are the shortcodes for signup / sign in

    [dr_signin_btn text=”Signin” view=”always”]

    [dr_signup_btn text=”Signup” view=”always”]

    As for search, if this is the only content on your site then perhaps just the ordinary search would work? I haven’t tried it yet but I would try that first.

    Good luck.

    The theme you see on that site is the default theme included with the Directory plugin.

    To enable that theme, you first need to move it from the directory/themes folder in the plugin, to the wp-content/themes folder in your WordPress install. You’ll need to do that via FTP. Then you can activate that theme under “Appearance” > “Themes” in your dashboard.


    Way to go taking the lead on this! Cookies are on their way :slight_smile:
