  • 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?

    Hi,
    I made a fresh installation of WP, Vantage and Directory. Now my home page is completely blank, if I activate Vantage things seem to be working, but when I activate Directory the home page goes blank again.
    Please help to resolve its been a week since I’m trying to reach you.
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Does this child theme support the display of all entries of ONE chosen category
    AND the display of ALL ENTRIES of ALL CATEGORIES? Is this option clickable for guests of the site?
    2. Can I place the GOOGLE MAP on the homepage direct under the menu with a shortcut?

    Thanks for your answer.

  • willatin

    Hello,
    I left you a message via support and via your contact page. I upgraded to latest Vantage and tried to use your latest Directory and Bfinder and they both crash the installation. Are these two child themes comparable with the newest wordpress and Vantage 4.2.1?

    As a VIP member, I thought I would not these kinds of problems. My directory clients complained that the website was down so I had to go the ugly default Vantage.

      You need to install directory 4.X not directory.zip, on vantage 4.X parent theme.
      it’s showing dots because you have the wrong vantage theme maybe, read this https://www.appthemes.com/blog/vantage-update-issue-and-solution/

    take note this websites fresh almost 1 week from date of purchase.
    That’s why i wondering is not working.. an install in wordpress.
    I purchase 4.X i paid 39$ and download the installer in customer panel .So where is the issue?
    Why there is 4.X separate installer of that.
    I don’t know how I fix my site now days are counting

  • ayasmansuri

    I want to make it clear I purchase this https://marketplace.appthemes.com/child-themes/directory-4-x/comment-page-4/#comment-55637

    I downloaded the products from customer panel

    I install in theme plugin after that is successful.

    When I open the site ONLY DOT.

    So I made any mistake..

    Better send in update installer.

    I disable all the plugin. before upload

      spartac

      give me admin access by email to support @ jobthemes.com
      you are using vantage theme by siteorigin, not by appthemes. that’s why you get this error.

  • ayasmansuri

    no site theme in my site . Have a look the entire site is empty. only your installer uploaded.

  • ayasmansuri

    I understand now from the download is a package for parent theme which is from site origin
    and Directory?

    The issue is coming from your side from the installation you give wrong parent theme that why is coming white screen in the page.

    Check the properly the file before to compress in the file zip.
    We are working to resolve and fix the issue I differentiate starting for your file zip.

    I need the new file to be download in my customer panel?

    Don’t install the theme plugin in my site.

    We are give full time to and extra money to bring some expert site developer..
    Expenses more than the work of the plugin.

    ASAP

      you clicked on ” update ” vantage theme and the wordpress.org brough to your site the theme named the same ” vantage”, but from siteorigin and that broke your website
      what to do now is to go to your site wp-admin => delete the theme named ” vantage” and upload vantage by appthemes
      if you give me access to the site, I can do it for you in instance
      Cheers

      • ayasmansuri

            you don’t have enough listings to show the featured listings, add more ads=> set them as featured, they will show on the featured banner
            also go to appearance => widgets => drop the directory 4X widgets to the home page sidebar ( content)

  • Alberto

    No entiendo cómo puedes seguir vendiendo el tema Directory 4x en AppThemes. Es un fraude. No funciona. ¿Para qué vendes este tema si no se instala correctamente? Todavía estoy esperando que entres en mi web y instales Directory 4x, tal y como me prometiste por correo electrónico. Te has quedado con mi dinero y me lo vas a devolver. Te voy a denunciar a AppThemes por ventas fraudulentas.

    I do not understand how you can continue selling the Directory 4x theme in AppThemes. It is a fraud. It does not work. Why do you sell this item if it is not installed correctly? I’m still waiting for you to enter my website and install Directory 4x, just as you promised me by email. You’ve kept my money and you’re going to give it back to me. I’m going to report you to AppThemes for fraudulent sales

      what is it not working exactly !!

      • Alberto

        Hello Spartac, I sent you an email on Monday, April 8 to support@jobthemes.com with the url address of the web page where Directory 4x does not work and the access data as administrator so you can access it. If not, give me another email to send you the information.
        I’m still waiting for your help.
        A greeting.

  • albertolopez

    Hi Spartac, I’m still waiting for your answer to my problem.

    My website is: empresasdemotril.donempresa.es

    I have sent your access credentials as administrator to the support email.

    Why does the Directory 4x template create so many problems for your customers?

    It’s a joke?

    When I bought Directory and activated it on my website, all I want is for it to work and be equal to Appthemes’ LIVE DEMO.

    Customers buy to find solutions, no more problems, no cheating.

    I await your news.
    Thank you.
