"Just drop in this plugin, activate it, set up your Directory and presto -- you're ready to create listings."
That's what it says - but oh no it's not actually allowed to be that simple.
I have a multisite install and want to run a couple of directories on sub-sites, each with different taxonomies and content types.
If I want to use the default directory theme - correct me if I'm wrong - I need to copy it so that each site uses a different version and then go through it working out where to change things in various files (eg theme-functions.php needs to pick up the corrrect post type etc) and that's before I have a go at pasting in the embed codes created into single.php or wherever else they need to go.
If I want to use the directory plugin with another theme then it gets even more complicated.
So it seems "Just drop in this plugin, activate it, set up your Directory and presto -- you're ready to create listings." doesn't apply in my case. And, I suspect, most other people have a prettty unique "my case", so there must be a lot of customising going on.
Having spent most of my Sunday on this and not getting where I want, I'm frustrated. It's not that I can't work it out, or don't want to (and I will - I usually don't stop until I've cracked it). It's just that I didn't know I had to and therefore didn't expect to spend the time I would rather have spent on content.
I feel WMPUdev could be clearer about that fact that you need to already be a wp developer or want to become one to get the most out of their offerings. Or maybe I'm missing something.
Anyway, that's me letting off a bit of steam - and I wonder if anyone else ever feels the same way.
