Bfinder will make the best directory theme even better
By -

Let’s face it. Vantage is the best directory theme out there. Take it from me. I actually bought and paid lots of other directory themes on the market and wasted hundreds of dollars and even more hours for nothing. They all don’t work. They only look nice in the demo’s. Between custom fields (that are really custom based on category), multiple selling packages, front end login for customers, dashboard, Vantage is the only directory theme that works.

But… it has such a 2005 look…

With Bfinder, we got both, a good working theme with a nice look. Plus, the added features that just makes it so much easier to have a top site. We love everything, including the special “Advertising” spaces (before Bfinder we needed to spend hours and hours to edit the core files to insert adds where we wanted them), the ability to just pop in sliders, logo, fonts, translations, etc.

But the best part was the constant support we got from Spartac AFTER the sale. If you are serious about making money from a directory site, you need Bfinder.

Broken Theme and poor suport
By -

Spartec and Jobthemes used to provide excellent support both to there products and vantage forums as well. All that is now gone.
For several weeks I have been asking them to look into bfinder theme at my site but yet to get any conclusive answer.
Its apparent that they are not keeping up with the numerous WP and Vantage updates. Most of there page templates are broken.
There is no reason I must sit and wait on a developer who is not responding and for a product that I paid my hard earned cash. I will be requesting a full refund.

The awesome transformation for Vantage

Bfinder is simplely the Best
By -

Bfinder is worth much more than 595$ theme i bought from a company i wont mention here but thanks to spartac for giving us Bfinder for just 49$. I said (us) because i know you will buy Bfinder too. I personally call it (My Gold) because it only child theme that ever worked for me after trying i0 other child themes. We all swim right? and know when you are swimming and sinking, meaning you are about to die then boom !!! someone came out from nowhere to rescue you trust me you will never forget that person in your whole life, thats what Bfinder made me feel right now. Dont think twice buy it and start your dream blog or site, If you have any question dont worry, Spartac knows everything. He dont sleep, if you think am lying check his status you will see that green button means his always online 365 days 24 hours and if you didnt see the green button, he might be trying to caught some doritos at the store, just leave him a message and you are all done. For you also to know am not paid to write this check my site http://www.eventsandbusiness.com its new dont expect to see much but you can also post your events and business to be found around the world. Bfinder came to my rescue

    Hello

    I just purchased a copy of Bfinder. I assume this is where I can get support? Please correct me if I’m wrong and point me to the right place otherwise.

    I’m now trying to use it on my site, so there’ll be a few questions coming your way ….

    FIRST – I tried to use the TYPOGRAPHY option, using Google fonts. Just for the sake of trying it, I chose Roboto (and Montserrat later) all the way through. But it’s not working. The font type changes to serif instead.

    Did I have to activate another plugin to access Google fonts before this feature would work?

      Hi
      Thank you for purchasing our theme.
      Actually, you receive support by email at support @ jobthemes.com
      Please send the url + admin creds by email so we check it out and fix the necessary.
      Best regards

      Hi,
      try to activate vantage theme and see the events , how they work there !
      Plus, what’s the version of vantage you are using? is it modified or fresh installs??
      Cheers

  • alenakha

    With vantage theme it also doesn’t work. I have updated Vantage and Bfinder today to last versions.

    • author
      spartac

      So at first glance, it’s not a bfinder issue. and I assume it’s not vantage’s as well, send the url + admin access to support @ jobthemes.com, I will look at it and fix the necessary for you.
      Cheers

  • alenakha

    One more problem I have – http://siga-siga.com.cy/bike-shop-in-cyprus/
    Pictures position is not properly and also in mobile the pictures are on the text

  • alenakha

    Yes, and I think it could be fixed easy, changing images size

    • author
      spartac

      send the url + admin access to support @ jobthemes.com where you receive support.
      For the events, I will see the settings.
      And for shortys, I think it will need some css custom mods .I’ll look into it
      Cheers

    Is there an upgrade conversion discount for those of us who purchased directory. It seems that child theme is no longer supported in favor of this new updated theme by the same developer?
    Thanks

    • author
      spartac

      Hi David,
      Both themes are well supported and updated regularity . Bfinder’s updates lately were concerned about some issues appeared in it but not in Directory theme.
      Do you want to switch themes ?

  • Hugo

    Hi… In the live demo is not working the map view, it’s in blank. See Listings » Korean » Kimchi King for example. That is a Vantage or Bfinder error ?

      Hi Bobisk,
      make sure your vantage theme and bfinder are both updated to the latest version, this bug appeared last month but appthemes fixed it by updating their vantage theme.
      Cheers

  • bobisk8

    I am with the latest version of Vantage Version: 3.0.8 and the Ultima of Bfinder Version: 1.3.1 even so this error continues.

  • bobisk8

    I sent you the access data yesterday? What about the error. ?
    How can I fix it. ?

  • bobisk8

    I have corrected the error, installed from the beginning.

      Hi Bokisk,
      I couldn’t find any clue about the issue or the generated error.since you fixed it that way, so it was related to vantage theme first install.something went wrong since then.
      I am glad you got it fixed.
