Using Directory with Thesis

Just wondering how to use the Directory with other themes besides the default theme package. We use the Thesis framework for all of our sites and would like to continue using it for our new directory site...

    Hiya PartridgeHillMedia,

    To be honest the really important part of the Directory plugin is the themes that are included.

    You could use our CustomPress plugin (which is what Directory is based on) to setup your own custom post types and then style them however you like within the thesis framework. I've never tested this myself and it'd be quite a custom undertaking, but should be doable.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks!

    I actually managed to get Thesis running in the Directory, which is great. And I've got content showing only on the home page, like we want. I'm working on customising the Thesis homepage in a grid pattern to call up the taxonomies and sub-cats. That's the tricky bit now. :slight_smile:

    I'll check out the Custom Press Plugin and see if I can get it to work more easily.

    Many thanks,
    Nissa
