  • Answer: Unfortunately, No. This version is compatible only with vantage 4.X.if you want to keep using vantage 3.X, You can get the other version of directory here
  • Question: I have a valid subscription of the old directory theme but I want to try this one.Can I get this one for free?
  • 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?

      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.

            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.

    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!

      spartac

      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!

      HI Phil,

        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.

      you locate the po and mo files into this folder directory-4x\languages
      make sure you don’t use any cache or serucity plugins.perhaps they are blocking any new changes and this is what’s causing the issue since the begenning.

    Hi Ahmorgan,
    Thanks for your comments.
    The refund policy is all explained on appthemes terms of services.
    however, what you are referring to arent good reasons for refund.you could share url and admin access so we check out the website and fix it if we find any issue.
    For the revslider, we purchased a developer license to include it within our theme as extra.the user shouldnt buy anything, we update it regullarily when there is a stable version of the plugin ( stable here means it works perfectly with vantage framework and directory)

    We are here to help You with these 2 issues.please reach with us here or by email to support @ jobthemes.com

      check our your email inbox.
      you sent me the login info and I replied that your website is showing a blank page ( I reported this before you commented this)
      so this has nothing to do with the admin access you gave me, because I couldnt even login, I didnt even see your website, it was like that.and thankfully I reported this by email to you.

      • ahmorgan

        relax, just sent you an email.
        i am not accusing you, just asking if you were on the site (only one person can have access to admin at a time). most likely the website shut down once they noticed that some one else is trying to login.

        I will get back to you once i gain access again.

    Hi,
    I’m using Vantage 4.1.2. With your theme is it possible to change the search bar where the Find section has a drop down of Categories? So a user can select a certain category then type in their location.
    Thank you.

      Hi Stantdesign,
      Yes it’s possible but still requires some advanced custom mods..
      the search bar itself is provided by vantage, not our theme, directory theme just display it as it’s provided by vantage framework.so I am going to see what should be edited to have this done.and get back to you.

      Hi Stantdesign,
      It’s possible, but it requires some advanced custom mods..on directory 4.X , the theme displays the search function as it’s provided by the vantage framework.
      but let me check that out and see, perhaps it’s not that hard.one few codes to be moved within.

    Hi Spartac,

    I just renewed the Vantage Template and bought the Child Theme Director 4x. I uploaded the file in CPanel. Created the function and Single.php files as per the directions. I’m having a few issues.

    2. Events. I don’t see a feature to activate the Events
