    I’m now using your child theme “Directory” and wish to switch to this one. Two quick questions:

    1) Any discount for an existing user?
    2) In Directory, we can place adds “inside” of a listing. I can’t see it in your demo for Bfinder. Can we do it too? I’m referring to an add spot in the middle of the listing (under add to favorites, claim listings button). Not to the header footer or sidebar areas.

    • author

      Thank you for being interested in our theme 🙂
      Regarding the discount, although appthemes arent providing any for now , but we would give be happy to give you you back $10 by paypal if you purchase bfinder.
      Bfinder has all the features of directory theme, and the ads between the listings option is one of them, we just didn’t activate it for the demo, but it’s there .

    Hi Spartac,

    “The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.”.

    Is it possible to display the blog’s articles at the top of the home page instead of the bottom ?

      Hi Owendoo,
      There is no option for that, but with moving some codes in a code file, You would be able to.

      • owendoo

        Hi Spartac,
        Is this a big job to move the codes in order to have the blog post at the top of the page (to display the deals and messages of the week) ?
        Do you do the personnalisation of your themes ?

      Bfinder is a child theme of vantage, so you should check out if vantage works with buddypress. as i Know, it’s working partially, it needs some adjustements to fit.

  • leonila2

    Hi I just bought b finder and I would like to know how I get rid of this message he ‘Bfinder – Single Listing/Event Map’ widget must only be used on the ‘Single Listing Sidebar’ or ‘Single Event Sidebar’

    I also would like to know how I can change the word business to school where ever it appears on the theme.

    I also want to know how I can edit/change the home page.

    Thanks for your help.

    • author

      Hi Leo,
      Thank you for purchasing our theme.
      you go to wp admin => appearance => widgets => remove all the widgets named ” single listing” from the sidebars and place it only on the single listing or event sidebar.
      There is no option in vantage theme to change the word business to school without editing the core codes of the framework ( this is related to vantage). but if you follow a fake translation from english to english, you can do it easily,
      please follow this tutorial showing how to edit Resume to CV without editing anything else.
      this tutorial works for jobroller, you can use the same technique for vantage too .

      – to change the layout of the home page, you go to bfinder the me settings => home layout. edit the available options then save settings.
      Best ergards

    I am trying to use Bfinder and Vantage to build an online directory. I must say Bfinder gives vantage the sleek look that I like. I have chosen homepage layout with the thumbnails which I think looks the best but I need your help with a few things

    1. How do I make the thumbnails at least a third smaller?
    2. How do I also get a slider below the search Bar section showing posts that I will make in the blog and their featured photos and title.
    3. I also would like to have a sidebar on the homepage with our twitter and facebook feeds as well as sidebar adverts. How do I get that?
    4. The blog posts showing on the home page are not displaying well the excerpt is jumbled, how do I just show posts featured photo and title only?

    I am building this as a novice and learning so much as I go along so any help you can offer i would really appreciate.

    Looking forward to your continued great support.

    Loved your theme, I’m new to these theme business…do I need to buy the vantage theme and then this theme to start a website….or I can can start the website with this child theme only. Do help so that I can review and purchase at the earliest.

    • author

      thank you for your words.
      Yes you need to install vantage theme first to use our theme, it’s its child theme, you will be using a combo of tens of options and features of both themes. also you receive double support and double updates.

    yes, I would like to use the blog posts to display deals and local infos of the week at the top (after the map) to be visible ( with the same disposition than the listings and the events -grid or list-)

    • author

      Yes owendoo, it’s possible but it still requires some custom mods, there is a code of the blog posts carousel you need to move from the home layout to the header.
      It’s not hard, but it takes few minutes though.

  • applej


    Great theme. However, I do have a few questions:
    1. Does the blog allow categories and sub-categories?
    2. Can ad boxes be placed on the homepage?
    3. Can 1 ad box rotate different ads? If not, is there a compatible plugin?
    4. Can the header space be made larger so that it could fit our logo and a picture?

    Thank you.

    • author

      Thank you for your kind words.
      1- Yes the blog allows that.
      2- do you mean advertising spots?. yes it can, but there are specific areas, in case you want them on other ones, you’ll have to place them directly to the core code, we can show you where.
      3- if case you want a larger header so all the layout should be larger to include that header.but if you mean you want to increase the height, yes it’s possible.


  • owendoo

    in which file can I do that ?
    Do I have to create another child theme to change the code, or can I change it directly on the original (or uste Jetpack)?

    • author

      You can modify the file directly on bfinder , but keep the changes backed up to not lose them when you update bfinder next time.
      The files you work on are :
      header.php and va-home-columns.php
      if you don’t have the skills enough to do that, You can hire a developer at

    1. Is there a way to add a advertisement roller/ rotater in the home page?
    2. I have seen that in the restaurant page there is just one image visible, can we add multiple photo of the restaurant and the photo can move as slideshow?
    3. There are 4 Home page layouts, where can I see a demo of each layout?(screenshot will be helpful)
    4. Is it possible to have the directory child theme layout such as in the link ( in the bfinder?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Spartac,

    Just purchased BFinder and love it, however I have one issue I can’t seem to resolve.

    I cannot get the map to display on the Home Page. It displays correctly on listings search pages but not home.
    Can you point me in the right direction as I know it must be something simple I am missing.
    I have placed in ‘List Page Top Sidebar’

    Also can I ask if BFinder supports the Vantage ‘Header Sidebar’? I do not see in header.php file and nothing happens when content placed in widget area.

    Thanks again

      Hi Shane,
      have you enabled the header map on bfinder settings and added it to the widgets?
      bfinder supports the header sidebar (under the search bar )

  • Shane

    [Also can I ask if BFinder supports the Vantage ‘Header Sidebar’? I do not see in header.php file and nothing happens when content placed in widget area.]

    I resolved by adding code manually from Vantage Header.php

    • author

      Ah, you meant the top header. it should be supported, I checked out the file header.php and I didnt find the code as well, we will add it. I am still not sure how it was removed
      I am glad you resolved it 🙂

    Thanks Spartac,

    I don’t see the option to enable header map in BFinder options?

  • Shane

    Me again,

    Another issue I have spotted is that, I am using Map Supreme and its grouped icons do not work with BFinder. All pins displayed individually.

    I have also used a custom ‘Featured Pin’ which is not displaying.

    And while I’m at it 😀

    In BFinder options there is an option to use different Featured ribbon, but this is only displaying Sponsored and will not change to any of the other options.

    That’s it for now 😀

    Thanks again.

  • Shane

    Scrap this
    [In BFinder options there is an option to use different Featured ribbon, but this is only displaying Sponsored and will not change to any of the other options.]

    I thought it was for the featured slider.

    Is there a way to bump it down so they can be seen in the mobile css?

  • gotbest

    Great child theme for vantage! I would like to purchase this child theme, but can this theme work with 3 of plugins below:
    User locator
    QR code widget

    Can you create a vantage plugin that could set to grab only the visitor’s city name instead of grabbing all information such as street name, city, state, country, zip code using HTML5 geolocation API? Make the city locator plugin work with standard vantage theme and bfinder / directory child theme. That would be a popular vantage plugin for sure. Thanks.

    • author

      HI lamy,
      I have just uninstalled bfinder and installed it again.
      There is an option in the advanced settings of bfinder which says ” default mode” , set it to either grid or list, if you select no option, it will cause the conflict. we will avoid it in the next update
