There will be some major changes to our plugin in the next planned release (v2.0) that will likely affect the layout of the directory on your website. In order to correct some issues that have been inherent from earlier versions of our plugin, and to make the LDD Directory Lite plugin more compatible with user’s WordPress themes, we will be making a major update to the template structure of the plugin. The specific changes will affect how the directory categories view and single listings pages are displayed. These views will now rely on your theme’s category/archive and single post templates to generate those views.
Easily build a categorized, content rich and fully searchable directory of local businesses, service providers, organizations, or any other type of listing.
• Custom Categories • Front End Listing Submissions & Management • Business Logo • Full Description • Sumamary Text • Business Contact Info
• Anti-Spam Protected Contact Form • Business Website Link • Social Links (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin)
