Great Theme, Great Support
By -

Hi everyone,

I have used this child theme with great success; it’s rare that I leave any feedback as I more of a background memeber however in this situation, it warrants feedback for App Themes.

The child theme is very easy to use, even if you have limited skills, as you already know that by using this theme you are able to gain a whole new look for the theme; which means more customers if you are selling, designing or have clients looking for sites.

Support is A1. I have, in the past bought a theme only to find that it is un-supported. Rest assured that support is actually, very strong at App Theme’s – and this is partly why I am writing this today. You see, buying a theme (for me at least) is only part of the deal, you want it to be updated and to have support from time to time and Spartan at App Themes is excellent at supporting the themes, nothing is too much trouble and response times are great.

Five stars from me! thank you so much for this this theme and your support!

Cheers
Rob

Great Theme - An Easy, Elegant and Expeditious Way to Transform Your Vantage Directory in a Jif
By -

This truly is a great way to modify Vantage with powerful and professional features….and for $39 – on a bootstrap budget to boot! In about 6 minutes flat we completely transformed the look of an older (and dated) Vantage project – now looks like new. Great work and an easy investment to make – and with such great support and on going updates, highly recommended to all!

Solid theme + outstanding support
By -

Having used a couple other Vantage child themes in the past, I can safely state that this is the best of the bunch.

To be honest, the theme has so many features that I was afraid the code would be bloated and the site would load slowly, but that’s not the case – I’m getting solid performance.

And the customer service from spartac is by far the best I’ve ever seen on AppThemes – the guy isn’t just here to sell stuff, he actually wants you to be happy and get the most out of his themes. Thanks!

    Hi. THX for this theme.

    I have tow problems.

    1. Default GRID/LIST not working, only on first (home page), not on pagination.

    (I read all the post on the forum, i found similar issue but no solution.)

    2. When i am login, and logout, “Ad an review” show like an image. Some CSS issue or i don’t know.

    Nice theme! I wanted to check how it appeared on my iphone but the theme demo doesn’t seem to be responsive (at least on my system). I can view the standard apptheme Vantage theme responsively, but not your demo.

          After searching all over the network, we found no solution – none found it before – , so we will make a big a step the next update releasing version 3.0, jumping all the formalities , but this will resolve the update issue because our theme’s version will be bigger than the fake directory theme in wordpress free themes directory.

    Really impressed with the reviews, you guys must be doing an amazing job!
    Wondering if this child theme offers any additional options for creating Pricing Plans? Vantage is great but it seems like all we can offer is ability to be “Featured” or length of time for listing. Hoping for better management of banner ads (when/where they’ll run, etc.), charge for video or extra images (portfolio), custom directory/business page, include/exclude social media accounts, share or click-to-call (mobile)? Would appreciate any clarification of which advertising features Directory offers beyond Vantage. Thanks so much!

    • author
      spartac

      Hi Phillip,
      Thanks for your comment and for the kind words.
      For now, there is no plan for the pricing plans but I have heard from teh dev team of vantage that they are going to release a very new version mid july which will be the most complete, and they be fixing lot of bigs and they enhance other features.
      I understand all your concern and all the features you listed are a must-have to well monetize any successful directory web site.
      Regarding the advertising features, we have created several well-located spaces to inject banners or adsense slots. It’s one of the many ways to increase the profits from the website.(spots between the listings, 3 spots in the listing single page.. a header one, a footer as well, and more, all this can be enabled and disabled.

      You can check out all the features packed with directory theme, there is a full and rich extra theme settings panel. http://demos.jobthemes.com/index.php=directory-admin

      What I promise you that I will take note to my dev team and we see what we can do ourselves about them.and certainly we will never stop improving the performance and the quality of this theme.
      I hope there are enough reasons for you to be one of our awesome customers.
      Best regards

  • chebee

    Hi @spartac. Loving this theme and the choices available. I would like to buy it, but I have a few questions.
    1. Can I hide the map?
    2. Can main menu be moved to somewhere above slider…below search-country box?
    3. I like the way the main menus and search country box looks in the parent vantage theme. If I would like to keep the original main menu and search country box will that be difficult to do with this child theme?

      Hi Chebee,
      Thanks for your comment and for liking out theme.
      1- Yes the map can be hidden, it’s a widget, you can enable and disable it
      2- Yes it can be moved but this would require few customizations, we suggest that you create a second menu and place it above the search box.
      3- We created our theme to be different than vantage theme, and somehow making the header like vantage theme would make it similar than vantage. your request is possible but still there is no easy option for it unless if you do some css/php custom mods by rolling back.
      It’s not difficult but still not easy as we have done lot of work to the header to completely change vantage one.

      Best regards

  • Mike

    I like to buy directory but I noticed the listings on the map doesn’t open up a bubble with the listing info. The map markers simply direct users to the listing details page.

    Do you have plans to include this feature to your child theme? Do you have an ETA?

  • idesignstudio

    Hi,

    Does your child theme work with the Infinite Scroll plugin?

    Thanks.

  • idesignstudio

    Hi,

    Great looking child theme with really nice features. I like the arrangement of the front page Listings and Events.

    I am testing it on my iPad before deciding to purchase and I encounter the following:

    1. The hover layer on each entry doesn’t allow me to easily open the single page. I keep clicking on title link, image, category link or add your review but it doesn’t trigger to open the links.

    2. The hover layer works a bit funny. When I touch somewhere in the entry area (all within the yellow background), it shows for a second the social links and hides them again. When I want to click one of the links (see point 1) then instead of opening the link, it keeps the social icons now all the time visible. If I click again some of the links in the same entry, nothing further happens and I still cannot go to the single page for the entry.

    3. Favorites: my 2 cents. If I favore an entry, I would like this to be visible to me from this moment on, i.e. if the red circle with the heart then stays red all the time, would be great and really user friendly.

    The theme has lots of potential and great arrangements ideas, but I need to hear your feedback how you would think to overcome the limitations I have described as it makes it barely usable on a majority part of mobile devices, and then I am ready to buy.

    Thanks.

      Hi idesignstudio
      Thanks for the comments and for the kind words.
      Answering your questions

      1-about infinite scroll, we have never tested it with our theme to see if it’s compatible with vantage child themes or not.
      do you have a productive vantage theme with the plugin installed?
      technically it works with our theme but you need to inquire this from the developer of plugin asking him whether his plugin works with vantage child themes.

      -We will test that behavior and fix any issue or a bug we find out and the fix will be included in the next update.
      Regarding the hover, do you mean the featured listings? or any of the other regulatr ones?

      -The favourite function works that way, but because the owner of the listings(all of them) is connected automatically in the demo website, so it reactes differently ( the top bar in the demo has a tiny script that affects on it)
      try one of our customers’ websites (I’ll provide you one when I ask their permission) .. I will update the demo and fix this behavior on the demo site.

      -As we are still in the first second version of this theme, we certainly will enhance it by time. fixing the bugs and adding more features and options. but regarding the limitation in the support agreements, if you would like to add any extra feature or to customize it to fit your own request, You’ll need to hire a developer/freelancer to achieve what you want. and here We recommend codeable.io to everyone because of their good services and reduced costs.
