    • author

      Hi Tykoon
      your google map is activated?
      did you have it working before, ?
      the google map and geolocation is a module of vantage , if it’s working on vantage, it will simply work on directory.

    Hi Spartc

    I bought directory prior to Vantage 4 with no expiration and then bought 5 in 1 Bundle which expired. How do I now download the latest Directory version? Do i need to renew my 5 in 1 bundle again as I only use Directory theme nothing else and it was suppose to be free for lifetime.


  • skyler

    Hello, I bought Directory theme yesterday but it seems it doesn’t work for me. Please issue a refund.

  • robertnbg

    there is no support but theme work
    this one is a child theme you need classipress to activate it
    first you have to pay for classipress membership and download and install theme
    after that you can install this one or other child themes
