Directory is our brand new platform that encompasses a parent theme, various plugins and a wide selection of child themes. It is the most advanced theme we’ve ever created with literally hundreds of custom features. Read this page to learn more about how you can turn your website into a global directory.
How do cities work in Directory?
Cities in this WordPress listing directory theme essentially provide another layer of filtering content. With regular themes you’re limited to organizing posts into categories; in Directory everything you create is also filtered by cities. In practice, it means that a person who “lands” in New York won’t see anything posted for London. Customize cities by adding a city message or setting a custom header and body background. Choose between using an image or a simple color for both the header and the body.
Use city logs to check out how many people visited each of your cities. The theme also logs each visitors IP address.
A map for everything
In Directory we’ve made it so that geo-location information can be associated with virtually any piece of content. This will allow you to showcase pretty much anything on a map. Maps themselves are plentiful. They are featured on the homepage, along with search, category and detail pages. There are 6 different map widgets you can use thought the site. With category pages you can choose between using an AJAX based map or a listing map widget. The map widget also enables pinpointing functionality for quickly focusing on a specific map marker.
