They are very responsive with customer support. And I like the plugin, I would recommend a filter for default map version to be displayed. Not every site can use the colored one, maybe we want to use the terrain view. I didn't find a place to set this as default. I think if it hasn't been added, it would be a good feature in the settings. Thanks

Our experience with WordPress and GeoDirectory has been fantastic compared to previous work with Drupal and a variety of plugins to create a similar directory website. GD let us start adding data literally out of the box, looks better than our old site after simply applying one of the provided themes (and I didn't have to touch the CSS), and with the Advanced Search addon it has better search functionality without having to hand-write queries. The best part is that my wife is comfortable sitting down with it to enter and manage listings! We are very glad to have found GeoDirectory and seriously could not be more impressed. Contacted their support team today and got prompt assistance upgrading our Location Manager subscription to a full membership so we can incorporate some of the other available addons.

Hello, I'm trying to put together a dual-function directory with: 1. listings for businesses that have a physical location and 2. listings for online businesses/self-employed professionals. I imagine your plugin can do that, as long as it's possible to make the address field optional when users submit listings? Thanks in advance!

Very powerful plugin indeed, with endless opportunities for future development. For prompt and bespoke support watch out for Stiofan (@stiofansisland). He is a Schwarzenegger of Code. Thank you! 😉

I have been using GeoDirectory for about 9 months or so now and could not be happier with how it works! I had problems setting it up initially and the support team here got me thru it and got me up and running. If your looking for a plugin that will run your directory this one is the only one I can highly recommend! Not only for the plugin but also the support is amazing. Alex and his crew have helped me every time I get stuck on something. Just to give some perspective my directory is running 3550 active listings and its growing and the plugin is handling it fine! So if you're wondering if it can run something with a lot of listings it definitely can!

When I thought about concept of my listing website, I tried various themes & finally settled at Supreme Directory. Then it was the tun to use a suitable Plugin - I did my research & found many plugins but chose to install GeoDirectory. It was a bit intimidating at first & I was in a hurry to get things done. So, I spoke to a couple of people in my network & they suggested to use some other plugins. And I listened to them. The next step - I uninstalled GeoDirectory & changed the theme too & installed the other suggested themes & plugins. I soon realized i made a mistake. Not that they weren't good but they probably were not meant for the things I needed in my website. With a little/brief experience I had with GeoDirectory on my first install, I decided to go back & reinstalled everything back. Now my website is up & running & it is because GeoDirectory (Fondly called as GD) has immense potential to create things you can think of & that's exactly what happened with me. While designing mu website, I wen through many changes because i was thinking to add more capability & boy, I was getting it. Everything fell into place & I am so happy with the final product. And now the most critical part - Critical,because most of the good plugins fail not due to bad design but due to a weak or no customer support. I have no qualms in proudly recommending GeoDirectory not only for its robust design & capabilities but for the unconditional support i received from Kor, Guust & Alex. These are the guys who will be of great help when you chose to work with GeoDirectory & I strongly recommend that whenever you are doing a listing website, look no further than GD. All the Best Guys & keep up the good work!
