Profiler for Vantage

Live Demo

This plugin allows a Vantage website user who creates a listing and/or event to create their own website page with complete details (like a normal separate website – an attractive presentation of profiler dashboard).

The plugin adds five attractive and clear responsive designed one page website templates for each user to choose from. The main idea behind development of plugin is right now any user only create listing and/or events and get the detail page but by the use of the profiler plugin the same user has created own website page also with more detail of user profile to present himself in perfect way.

The Vantage user can add contents and settings from their edit profile page just like a normal user can edit their profile. The user can see the additional feature options like logo image, three content (CMS) sections with title and description, three banner image options for animated jQuery slider, about content, website page SEO title option, listings and events related titles, show/hide options also favorite listing and events options. and the most important is template selection section.

User should complete the necessary settings and add content as per his requirement and see the site preview from the link over same profile page.

Any visitor can see any user website page from listing/events detail page as the plugin adding the button for website page liked visitor can directly view the complete detail like a website.


Interface from admin & front end user

Form admin side – admin can manage template, set default template….

While from front end user can add content, add/change logo,banners,about content, 3 other additional content, listing & events related settings and change template. Interface is easy to manage so don’t worry about settings..

A good Value, why not?
By -

This plug-in is a cool feature. It makes a 1 page, web site… or kind of like a landing page for your directory members. You have about 6 templates to choose from. It is NOT something that is absolutely stunning or mind blowing… the plug-in is only $39… but, for $39… I think the value to your members is very high!… and it gives you another feature to make your directory interesting to would be customers.

One problem is, once its installed… it is NOT clear at all as to how you get to the “create / edit your web page”… there is no obvious link for users to click on that takes them out to the “edit profile” and set up for the web page? So, unless you figure this out, people will miss it. I had to have my developer change some of the hyperlinks in the menu system to make it more obvious…

Here is my screen capture, sales video for customers… if you watch closely, you can see how I illustrate this web site feature and notice closely the links that take you out to the landing page… those were customized… not a big deal.. just changing the link text inside a widget I think…

Here is my directory:

Watch the video in the top right corner.

So I recommend this feature, its cool…

major security flaw.
By -

if you go into the comment section above you will see the developer knows that there is a security flaw but instead of actually fixing it, they state to go into EVERYONES PROFILE and change their user name. The developer even gives instructions that do not work so DO NOT BOTHER BUYING THIS PLUGIN DUE TO ITS SECURITY FLAW

Great idea, great customer service
By -

Loved this idea especially for my site as some of my customers don’t have websites, so will be an invaluable tool to them and really adds value to my site. It is great if you have someone with multiple listings as it bring them all together allowing users to see what else they have to offer. It also allows people listing more space to talk about themselves as an organisation that they may not be able to do in a listing, really giving a good overview to users.

I was also impressed with the customer service, I got very quick responses to my questions and the small issues I had. They also listened to my issues/suggestions and implemented the changes to improve the plugin which is really great service.

You need to purchase this item before reviewing it.

    Very good idea but I am still struggling to see where is the link to this new page (web profile page) on the listing on your Demo?

    Another question is does it work with Vantage child themes like Directory and Flay Page?

    • author

      The web profile page is nothing but only vantage edit profile page from dashboard only. We have added screen image just in description on this page.

      Yes it will work for all child theme of vantage. But you should add author.php file in the current active theme. Please refer more detail from readme.txt or from faq section.


  • charterbase

    Great concept, but when I view the live demo, and select one of the listings, then click “owners webpage” (which I am assuming is the page they build using “profiler”) they all appear to be the same. Are there some different demo examples of what they can create? If not could you create some so I can really see the capabilities of your hard work? Thanks

    • author

      you can see we have added 5 buttons for different type of demos and even you can see on menu section from our demo.

      All the listing and events you can see for the demo and same way from those events & listing while you click on “owners webpage” you can see it, vice versa..

      We try to show all possibility & features of plugin on demo.

      If you need any help, you are welcome.

  • charterbase

    Thank you for the prompt reply. Didn’t realize tabs labeled template 1 – 5 showed the different examples. looks great

  • afooncom

    This plugin is compatible with the vantage childtheme.


  • Ryan Nagy

    When I click the template samples they are showing up as “not found”

    • author

      Hi thanks to alert us. It was problem in vantage theme update. we replace the vantage theme to new update but don’t added the author.php file in theme root so it was the problem. Now every thing is ok.

  • mwginv

    Just so I understand this… say I have a website and I want people to list their businesses… each person that does list their business can also create their own 1 page as part of their profile using this profiler? Also, the businesses that will be listing on my site will be real estate companies… will they be able to post some of of their properties using this profiler? Lastly, anyway to have it so this profiler page shows up beneath the user default details page and not show up via a separate link… oh, one more thing – I noticed the users profiler page seems to use their username… which is a security issue as now they just told the world what 1/2 of their login is… can it use something else rather than the username? Thanks

    • author

      will they be able to post some of of their properties using this profiler?
      ==> no the profiler plugin just display the content like web format it dosen’t have added any feature to add new proper like. You have to add new property from standard theme add new option only. The profile webpage just display it on website.

      I noticed the users profiler page seems to use their username… which is a security issue as now they just told the world what 1/2 of their login is… can it use something else rather than the username?
      ==>it is the wordpress settings for author, if you change the nice name from edit profile of wp-admin > user > edit profile > Nice name – edit, it will changed the url and set different url of login name. It is not any direct interface for user. U have to manage it from wp-admin.


      • efreighter

        So your security flaw (major) is that unless you manually change each users profile “NICKNAME” since that is what I assume you mean since there is no “NICE NAME” edit section users can get hacked? How is this a safe feature and if this cannot be defaulted to protect our users, how do I get a refund? It seems that if we are paying you to help hackers, that is one major flaw in your coding that either needs to be fixed or this plugin needs to be removed and everyone refunded.

    Any plans to make any templates for salons hair and beauty) and also for Artists and Art Galleries?


  • Char J

    Hi I saw that this plug in works with Vantage and all child themes, does it also work with Geo Distance?

    • author

      it is just show profiler data in webpage format. Not related to Geo Distance.
      Geo Distance adds the relative distance to each listing. Visitor’s location is auto detected. Click to Get directions & map on each listing. not related to profiler for any feature. Please describe your question with more details.

  • Char J

    Also can this plug in pages become the home page?

    • author

      it is profiler page not the site home page. The profiler can see the listing, events and add contents and slider…
      each individual user have different profile…

  • Char J

    OK thanks, newbie here, not sure how many plug in can be used at the same time with customizing which is why I asked about the Geo Advantage!

    The profiles are beautiful! So now that i understand what it is LOL, few questions OK.

    Does the consumer see the Profile themes/pages listed on the tab or just business users after they log in. I guess I am trying to figure out how it shows up, as I would not want the general public to see that just the completed Profile. Which leads to another question, is there a live site I could see that shows how it looks,I am not clear on how the profile will be accessed.

    • author

      hi the profile you can access from profiler dashboard & from listing/event detail page. The plugin added link to visit profile webpage over there.

  • Char J

    sorry that should have read 🙂
    OK thanks, newbie here, not sure how many plug in can be used at the same time WITH OUT customizing which is why I asked about the Geo Advantage!

  • Char J

    Thanks so much for being patient with my questions! I finally saw how to access it last night after I asked! 🙂

    One more question (I think) If I understand, the viewer can only connect to the owner webpage through the listing to which the profile page list the about, events, and so forth right?

    So what happens or does it override the listings and events that come with vantage/child themes?

    You see your Profile pages are beautiful and is my hope that the viewer would just use it for business information. I do not want to have redundant or to may options like two events options.

    • author

      yes the profiler webpage only show the web page which contains the profiler information like listing and events added by the profiler.
      In short it give representation of user dashboard with additional information like company details, about profiler…. as per the content settings.

      there is not any control like show 2 event or listing or any like that..

  • Char J

    Hi what I am trying to ask is on the tab for the child theme it already has Events that one can click on and see all events listed by a business right, so does your profile override that with the page opening up to the profile or another listing of events? If it does not then I will have two place where Events can be listed right?

    • author

      no the profiler added new page for each profiler in which it will show the events you have added as per tab of your child theme profiler > dashboard.
      if you see original vantage theme, you can see the profiler dashboard. The plugin will create similar information webpage formatted page only.

  • pascale1973

    I would like to monetize this if possible, on my site many of the companies do not have a website and my other site is cosmetic surgeons, I would like to somehow be able to turn it off or on for only those who pay for it is that possible?. Like “enhanced page”

    • author

      yes it is make your profile private option in the profile settings page so profiler can set the profile private so no once can see it.

    Doesn’t work. Don’t buy it.

  • pascale1973

    In your previous comments you mention the dashboard doesn’t control show a single listing / event or something like that, so how do I say if someone paid for a particular plan, turn this feature on for them only?

    • author

      this is not any such option from admin dashboasrd for profiler it is open for all.
      I will discuss with our developer team and have a solution for that. We can give option to disable for all users and the admin only can select to whom they want to enable for profiler website. Is the same your question?

  • bizewomen

    Hello! Do you plan on creating a sidebar widget that shows the profile of the author/owner to the current single listing? I would like to have a small photo, text, contact information and social icons and link to the detailed profile page in the sidebar that connects a profile to one or more listings. Thanks so much.

    • author

      yes you have good idea, i will discuss with our developer and if any update will give update asap.

    • author

      hi efreighter,
      That is not security problem, it is the user nick name and only admin can change it from wp-admin > edit user.
      I will talk with developer team and if any edit profile solution, will update and let you know.


      • efreighter

        If you are giving a hacker 1/2 of a login, I would disagree that it is not a security flaw. If there is no way for the user to be made aware of that then without admin intervention, this plug is not secure.

        • author

          I will discuss with developer team and if any edit profile solution, will update and let you know.


          • scooter

            How is this taken care of Vipul? I know that when users create their profile in WordPress that the member url shows their username, but you can hide this by changing the nickname. Need this to be automatically set at sign up so that login usernames are not shown anywhere. Thanks

          • author

            Hi scooter, related to this problem we have added more option for change the user url change so user can change nick name from profile update page. Actually the nick name is not shown any where it is only for website SEO url only.


  • roblunte

    Yes, it is a good value… a nice added feature for your customers… however, they don’t make it clear as to where you “edit / create your page” as a user? If there is no clear link or button to go “build your web page profile”, then people will miss it.

    I had to go into the widgets and manually change the link text to read, “create / edit your web page” … to make it more clear.

    Here is my Directory:

    Watch the screen capture, “pitch” video in the top right… you will notice how I feature the “profiler” and note the way I changed the link text.

    Hope this helps.

    • author

      you can create a page in which you can mention the user profile related details and add the link in menu so user can get it easily.

  • efreighter

    I really like your customization on that theme. Can you tell me how to got the “get Listed Button” and not sure if you know that the author page does some weird crap when you click on the email button on a profile. Looks like another coding issue. clicked on email link on the bottom and went to:

  • efreighter

    cannot access settings. I use vantage and flatpage child theme. I commented on your forum as well as emailed you. hopefully this is not another half-baked plugin on apptheme.

  • roblunte

    Its not clear how I get the profiler update… even though I gave you a 5 star review… ?

    • author

      get latest updated plugin from marketplace/account/download/ section

      as you have already purchased the plugin so you can see the plugin download option in my account section while you loged in.

      You just need to get download the plugin folder, unzip and replace with your current wp-content/plugins/vantage_profiler/ folder.


  • efreighter

    I installed it, still nothing. I have never had to waste so much time on marginally working plugins on a site before. This has actually set me back 2 weeks so far waiting for help to fix a half baked plugin. Not just this one but 5 others too.

  • efreighter

    really? how can you see my site since I did not give you the URL? Also, I downloaded and installed your updated plugin before this hot mess and then just uninstalled and reinstalled it with the same half baked results as before. how about a PM to get real support?
