  • Answer: Simply You find this theme zipped within the folder of the other derectory theme, go to your appthemes purchases page on your dashboard, and download Directory theme,extract it on your local machine, You’d find Directory 4.X there. install it manually.
  • Question: Why didn’t you just update the other directory theme?
  • Answer: Vantage 4.X has been released recently, and although it’s 100 times better than 3.X with a very different and improved set of features but it’s like a new theme was made from scratch so technically it was not possible to update our theme unless it would not support any old installs/websites because of this, we decided to release this one as a new item but at the same time, our old directory theme customers would get this one for free 🙂
  • Question: is this the final form of Directory 4.X?
  • Answer: Ofcourse not, we will keep enhancing it with more and new options. Our customers will get the updates for free.

    This looks like an absolutely fantastic theme. Packed full of features and the styling is just great. Really modern with a crisp and clean look. Once the V4 migration script is ready and my sites are migrated, this is the theme I am using.

    Well done again Spartac. Another top quality theme. 🙂

    Hi there Spartac, I purchased this child theme just before you officially released it, so it doesn’t work on my current site running Vantage 4.x. Where and how can I download the right files?
    Thanks,

      Hi Mike.
      i am sorry for the late reply.
      if your directory theme subscription still valid .. go to your downloads at your appthemes account.then download it…unzip the folder on your local machine (pc) ..you will find a zipped file within named directory4x ..thats the theme compatible with vantage 4x ..upload it and activate it like any other theme.
      note that the vantage theme folder on your server must be named appthemes-vantage .. this is the default name you get it when you install vantage 4 .so if you didnt change the name.ignore the note above.
      if you need any help let me know.
      best regards

            I am running 4.X, I am not sure how to download new version as I bought Directory for version 3. Do I need to renew, and if I renew am I renewing version 3 or 4?

            @anuraag,
            you can simply renew directory theme, You’ll find directory-4 zipped within directory theme.
            if you renew, You’ll get both themes, one inside the other.
            Best regards

    Spartac. I am having a lot of issues with Vantage 4.0
    With you theme I will be able to do different forms for unique categories.
    ( it is any plugins like ACF for your theme, just in case?)

    Also Vantage has a Payment tab, but no settings or plans

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Spartac mein Freund!:)

    I bought this version and like it! Well done!

    I have a few questions :
    1. In your demo, you have “browse listings”. I would love to add that as well but can’t find the link or how to do this
    2. The footer widget foot size is very small. In the older version, the titles were at least in bold.
    3. It seems i can’t use my RSS widget feed anymore in a “text* widget. I always get a huge space before it.

    Can you help me out ?
    Thanks!

      Hi Phil,
      Thanks for your comment.
      1-You can add it by going to wp admin => appearance => menus => create a new custom link item with the url that points to the listings archive of your website.yourwebsite.com/listings/

      2-I will enhance the footer widget texts, make it bigger or at least easy to read.

      3-can you post your url so I can see the space on the rss widget?

      Best regards

      • yea747

        Hi Spartac,
        thanks for your quick reaction!
        1. That was really easy, thanks!
        2. Yes ideal would be the “old* version font size ( as well the header)
        3. I have send you a PM at your support mail.

        Thanks!

  • yea747

    Hi Spartac,

    another issue i am struggling with is that nice home page image you have. How did you do that ? Thanks!

    • author
      spartac

      HI Phil,
      it’s very easy, go to pages => pick the page you set as astatic home page and edit it, upload a big image as featured one, and save it
      like they did here https://demos.appthemes.com/vantage/wp-admin/post.php?post=14&action=edit
      Cheers

      • yea747

        Hi Spartac, I would love to keep that home page with featured and latest listings. But I can’t get rid of they “edit cover image” ?

      • yea747

        Hi Spartac,
        after some hours of error and trial, I still did not manage to delete that *Edit Cover image” on the home page! As I use the Rev Slider, I don’t need it but there is no way of taking it off form the home (front) page. Thank you.

          Hi Phil.
          try to logout or login with a different account.You will not see that edit cover image.it’s seen only by you.to ease changing the cover image.but othzr users cannot see that link.
          cheers.

    Hi Spartc

    Can you please tell me the best image sizes to use (featured images on single listing header) and also the image shown for latest and feature listing on homepage?

    Is it possible to specify which images should be shown on homepage under latest and feature listing box and specify a different image to show in header on single listing page.
