Vantage (AppThemes) + Directory Child Theme by spartac - you've found the Dream Team
By -

I spent hours and hours checking out Directory themes and even made a chart of the pros and cons of each. After two days of solid searching, I was left with one combo that kept winning on price, functionality, design and support.

The Vantage Theme from AppThemes (NOT Vantage from SiteOrigin)
plus
The Directory Child Theme by spartac

I’m now so happy that I chose these. I spent some time reading through all the help that spartac has given to customers and even to potential customers and I am so impressed.

spartac helped me out too, with a customisation that I wanted. His reply was fast, helpful and right on the money.

You can stop searching now – you’ve found the Dream Team. 🙂

emailed support but have no heard anything!!!!
Spartac’s response:
if you bring hundred of engineers, they won’t make it to work, know why ? You are using the wrong theme named vantage (by site origin) at ime you have to buy vantage theme by appthemes.com
You see? it wasnt our theme’s issue at the first place !
this is your issue since the begenning https://www.appthemes.com/blog/vantage-update-issue-and-solution/
but I hope I could clear it up this way

Cheers

Highly recommend purchasing a different directory theme.
By -

Support has been lacking and I’m not sure the product actually works. Oh, well, only $100 for Vantage and Directory subtheme then you can try Listable or another directory theme like I’m doing.

Spartac’s response:
Directory theme is a child theme of VANTAGE by appthemes.com not by siteorigin, You used the wrong vantage theme, that’s why unlike the other hundreds of happy customers,your site wasn’t working.

Fantastic Theme For Vantage
By -

I was using the stock Vantage product with some personal enhancements. Now, after using Directory by Spartac, the stock Vantage product looks dull and plain. I love the theme and all the features that come with it like the background patterns, Featured Ad ribbon choices, and styles make it really cool. It’s responsive, works on tablet, phone, and desktop flawlessly which is important to me. I run a Yelp-style site that gets most of its hits from young, smartphone-savvy customers. I primarily get traffic from phones so responsiveness is a necessity not an option for me.

Love this child theme and can’t wait to try BFinder, the other child theme for Vantage.

No longer supported

I purchased this theme and there are many bugs, especially with the new WordPress “Billie” rollout. Support went silent.
Spartac’s reply:
Directory theme has been always supported.We released the update that’s compatible with the latest version of wp and vantage 24 hours before you submitted this review which has no link to any pre-question or a dispute either by comments or emails.we still don’t know what are these many bugs you are speaking about.anyway, directory theme is working like a charm… and supported.

Very happy, used for global Jewish and Kosher Directory

I’m very happy with this child theme. We needed something for a client that has a global Jewish and Kosher directory:(http://www.koshertravelinfo.com/)

The directory required multiple categories and sub-categories. Directory child theme for Vantage took care of all our client needs.
