10 stars – no joke.
I tried several plugins, including paid ones on that canyon costing over 60 bucks, they did not satisfy at all.

Even without paid upgrades, it’s a true beast!

What really captured my loyalty is the Tech Support. Too many great product out there but lousy support. Directorist, I am a customer for life.
February 5, 2024 1 reply
I am in the process of switching to this plugin from another directory plugin I used for years and have been very pleasantly surprised by the simple yet slick features that Directorist is giving me! I am really enjoying the change! Simple in the sense that Directorist does a lot of things the other directory plugin I used can do but in ways that feel more efficient and easier to understand. I have used a lot of really complex plugins over the years that make things way harder than maybe they need to be… Directorist instead simplifies things and uses processes that just feel more logical to me. It feels easier to understand and remember the process. And the tech support goes above and beyond, even though I am still trying their free version. I have been quite impressed as I ask a lot of questions and they have come through for me every time! I plan to get the paid version as soon as I can afford it because they deserve it after all they’ve done to help me! I highly recommend trying out this plugin!
