Great Plugin, A must buy for self promotion.
By -

I have this plugin on my Vantage Site and use the Classipress one for that site.

Combined I can promote ads from one of my websites to the other and vice versa. The interface is really easy to use as any adjustments you make you see instantly before you then go ahead and post.

One gripe if there is one, is that on both plugins the Horizontal scroll does not work.

I am sure this will be corrected forthwith.

Check my site out if you wish to see it on a live site.

    good idea

  • tradeamillion

    It will be great if user could do a business search by name with out specify the category

    boldplan likes this.
    • author

      The option now is that the user search by name of business or keyword within a certain field(s).
      At least one category must be selected.

    If I type
    Danish, the first word of a listing

    not found

  • tradeamillion

    I know.
    my question is,
    how to make a business name search with out searching or knowing category?

    • author

      For now, at least one category must be selected. perhaps later we will make it an option to type a keyword and search for all the categories.

  • tradeamillion

    Do it do it do it! lol

    I think it will be easier for consumer

    I also can the donation be made via stripe?

    • author

      I will consider it 😀
      For the donation, only paypal available now.
      We will think about printing the reviews as well, for now only listings are available in the widget custgomizer.

  • tradeamillion

    It will be great to have business review printing too

    Your fired! lol

    I remember an other badge widget for business listings
    was it you dev it?

  • inspireme

    How about provide a LAT/LON and see local businesses? that way websites dealing with locations, such as a hotel or tourist attraction can put the widget on their site, provide a lat/lon and get all the local businesses from your directory.

    • author

      Hi inspireme,
      for now it’s not an option, we might add it to one of our next releases.
      Thanks for the headsup

  • malkie


    Can this plugging be used for event categories ?


    • author

      unfortunately, not an option for now, only listings widget is so .

      • malkie

        Thank you for your reply spartac

        Would it be possible for you to add this as a feature ?

        Or could I mod the plugin myself to do events.

        Best Regards

        • author

          Hi malkie,
          It’s not scheduled but I will talk to my dev team to plan it in one of the next releases.

    Why you guys make products? if you can’t give support for that??????? very bad, very very bad… very disappointed.

  • zerokool

    Just bought this plugin and I’m getting an error while trying to install it.

    The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

    Please fix or tell me how to fix!


  • zerokool

    Ok nevermind just ftp it and it will work just fine!

    • author

      You should increase the upload_max_filesize by changing the php.ini or htaccess file
      I am glad you got it resolved

  • yea747

    This feature looks great and I see the added value when I use the widget in my personal directory. But why would my directory users promote my directory in their personal webpages? Sorry for my ignorance!!!:) Cheers

    • author

      Hi Phil,
      Good question.
      I think your should think BIG.. why would people promote Yelp’s listings on their own webpages.!!!
      People usualy share content when they see it’s useful and if your site is good, so users would like to share listings on their webpages, or why not You share it on your websites networks. to rely each website with the other.
      I believe good content shares itself !
      Best regards

  • yea747

    Hi Spartac,
    Ok you convinced me!:) I will give it a try!

  • yea747

    Hi Spartac,

    I bought it and installed it in my directory, looks really great and awesome!

    As a test, i copy the generated code and paste it in a text box widget of another WP site I have but nothing shows up? I have your directory child theme installed. Do i need to install a RSS reader plugin as well in order to read that feed integrated in my text box? (ifso, which do you consult me to install?) Sorry i am completely novice n this RSS feed stuff :)!

    Many thanks!

  • yea747

    Done!:) Cheers!

      Hey Phil, I am happier that’s got sorted.
      now I would be greedy if I ask to be even more happy if you can copy/paste your last comment to the reviews section

  • aj270303


    I wish this to pull random adverts from my vantage site to my classipress site.

    How to i include all categories yet get it to display the ads in the box rather then every category text..?

    • aj270303

      Ignore that you just select the main category and it posts all ads within that :-).

      However. I just tried doing two in the main sidebar. One for ads in England. The other for ads in france.

      There seems to be a conflict when you do this, as neither displays and the sidebar is completely screwed for want of a better word.

      This so far even with these problems feels like it will be an awesome plugin..

  • aj270303

    Won’t scroll Horizontal either lol

    • author

      Hi Mark,
      Thank you for purchasing our plugin.
      you tried to post two widgets at the same page and you got that conflict?

      aj270303 likes this.
  • aj270303

    Yes the webpage was broken… Neither of the feeds showed…

  • aj270303

    I have set the donate button up in the software and it shows on the preview screen. How do i get it to show when i paste the code to the new site. The donate button does not show…

  • aj270303

    Well i see my previous negative comments have been deleted. Appthemes should be ashamed.

    Not only does the Horizontal scroll NOT work on this, you can’t have more then one working in the same sidebar.

    An example is mine where I have three websites. I can only promote one from the other two on any one site not both.! Useless if you are in my position.

    If you want horizontal scrolling and to display more than one websites content forget buying this…!

    • author

      I deleted them, not appthemes and I shouldn’t feel ashamed.
      In fact, as you said you will go get your refund, so go get it. you are no longer one of our customers. a stranger that he wants our reputation to be ruined by useless hopeless comments !
      Somehow you want to get all your websites fixed and the other side you tell the other people to not buy this !!!
      The issue here that as long as we tried to give help to you during years now, You showed up as a non appreciating person in the end, so it’s all unworthy. not even to answer your comments, so spare us both the time !
      Good luck with other developers !
      Best regards

  • aj270303

    I never said i’d go get a refund LMAO, you told me to. Shows the kind of person you are. Most decent people would sort the problem out. Mind you after a year of doing it I can safely say it was beyond you.

    My comments are not useless or hopeless. I have had another Appthemes Marketplace seller test these on their install and they have confirmed they have the same issues I have.

    My websites do not need fixing. It is YOUR plugins that need fixing and your themes as I am sure the ones who have recently checked the demo I mean here is an example of how you work.

    I have been telling your for months about your problems but you still have done nothing.

    Look at this screen shot I have literally just taken….!!


    This is on you own DEMO site that potential customers would come visit. You have yet to even correct that LMAO.

    Yet here you are deleting the truthful comments.

    My advice pull all your stuff, fix them, including demo’s and then upload them. Do them properly like everyone else.

    As I have said to you time and time again. It’s the least a Paying customer would expect…

    • author

      You make it sound like I wrote 4 aggressive comments, all the same and telling people to not buy these products and beware stuff !!! this shows the kind of person you are.
      so someone telling people to not buy my products is a definitely someone wishes that he never bought them.. especially after you said you wish there is a way of editing reviews !
      so what should I have said after all this !?!!
      – I have been always doing stuff properly and against a one not happy customer , I have made thousands happy ones, yet still trying to make that only one not sad about purchasing our products.

      Your intention in your ” truthful comments” were to blow our customers, unless you wouldn’t copy/paste the same comment on all the products, this is called ” spamming” and although we took note of that, but here you still try to drag us to keep these comments filled with talks.in fact this is taking more time than fixing any bug.
      -We do not provide support on comments or forums. we will fix the necessary and you’ll be updated like anyone else (nothing personal)

    Can display the category list with count numbers in another remote site ?

    • author

      Thank you for your comment.
      This plugin works with vantage theme (and it displays the categories of the directory made by vantage) and you can copy/paste the code to show the widget in another remote website.even if this last one isnt a wordpress, or it’s a static one.
      You can try it yourself, copy the generated code into your own one and see the results.
      This is how it works.
