Off to a bad start with Directory

Okay, I'm working to setup directory on a subsite of multisite.

Got it installed and activated and then realized that I needed CustomPress to go along with it. Installed CustomPress and activated it on the subsite (this is wrong, but I some how created an error so I'm telling you this because it was part of the process). When I noticed that didn't do anything, I deactivated on the subsite and Network activated it and gave the subsites the ability to create their own CPTs.

Once that was done, all looked okay, but when I loaded the Add Listing page on the site, I get this error now:

Fatal error: Call to a member function display_custom_fields() on a non-object in /home/teatrade/public_html/wp-content/plugins/directory/ui-front/general/page-update-listing.php on line 166

I added a custom field, just testing and it didn't clear the error.

    Hey Saunt,

    I think I have seen this before, but thought this was taken care of. I suppose you are using the latest version of Directory, right?

    Just install CustomPress and this should go away I think. Maybe install CustomPress and create a custom field for the Directory listing.

    Let me know!

    I might be able to help with this...

    The newest version of the Directory Plugin includes Custom Press. Installing the actual Custom Press plugin separately will cause problems. So, I think you want to uninstall the Custom Press plugin.

    Greetings Saunt Valerian,

    Troycdunn hit it right on the head with his statement that Directory comes with Custom Press and trying to install it again is nothing but problems.

    As a matter of fact if Custom Press is indeed installed prior to the installation of the Directory plugin, the lead developer told me that it should be removed before installing Directory.

    Other then that, we have still not heard back from you as to the status of this issue.
