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.

    Like the looks of your plugin. Was wondering if you by chance tested your plugin to work with the Directory child theme by Spartac?

    Would be good if you guys connected to test it on his child theme.


    • author

      our profile plugin without any problem with any child theme because there is not any external css or code included. The plugin have own files & css which working without any change of child theme or plugin effected.

      While you can see the code of template && even see the HTML source from browser you come to know there is not any vantage theme css or any code added in template display.

      Yes only author.php file should be included in your parent vantage theme or in your current child theme. It is must.


  • Scooter

    I notice that there are some problems with the plugin. When looking at this demo page you see that the links to the listings and events don’t work.

    Have you thoroughly tested this plugin to make sure everything works? What is your refund policy?


  • tommy

    See how they dodge the refund question. There is none for anything bought here on appthemes. Be wary. I learned the hard way after wasting $300 dollars

  • tbase

    Hi Vipul,

    Can your plugin show project photos or a portfolio of work like the example below.

    Thank you,


    • author

      HI David,
      Sorry the profiler plugin not supporting project photos or a portfolio of work.

      • rpsllc

        Vipul, You do mention replacing the 5 choices with someone’s
        preference. Them installing it themself. Would this simply
        “Plug in” to your’s and keep original functionality?

        Simply hosting 1Page mini sites with a link to and fro
        would miss the self build option from within.

        How does the Link created look. Is it a subdomain of the
        primary website? x 1000 potential 1Page minisites?

        • author

          The 1Page mini sites can be assign dynamically as sub domain.
          you need get help of good technical person who help you.

  • tradeamillion

    are planning to update it so we can charge Lister for that service?

    • author

      hi sorry we are not planing for the payment system for the profiler.
      We have added global disable from wp-admin. So you may offer manual payment and enable from wp-admin > users.
      You can follow manually process.

  • elleirfan

    Does this plugin support payment so we can charge advertisers for this service?

    • author

      sorry for current version it is not available but option is given so you can manually collect the payment and enable the user settings.

      • tradeamillion

        you should add payment method
        you ll sell more of your plugin if we can generate new revenues with it

        • author

          yes it is good idea. But currently our development team is working on classipress banner buy option with use of woocommerce. Once it will success we will apply the payment option for other possible plugin.
          Ofcause for this plugin also.

  • savvas1980

    For the payment questions below i think that would be nice just to asign the plugin in a plan of vantage and everything will be ok .
    So in the free plan the user can create a simple profile but paid customers have their own website . As it is there is no sense to choose paid from free plan . Something like choose role of plan to apply on.

    • rpsllc

      I very much agree with keeping the “Profiler” as an Upgrade
      that the Lister must pay for. The Listing has upgrade potential
      but the Choice of 5 formats is Done For You (DFY) ready as much as DIY.

      DIY and DFY offerings are night and day . DIY saves Money but not Time.
      DFY is about Convenience and Time respect. Never assume that Price
      is related to Cost. There are more applications of the 5 than simply 5.
      Thats when my creative process kicks in. Knowing more applications
      would be nice. Like translation of languages. Visual communication
      before Alpha Numeric pain.

    Hi Vipul,

    I just purchased the Profiler Plugin and do not see a way for the listing owner to change the template.
    Can you guide me please?

    In addition, I have Profiler set to Moderator Enabled, however when I activate on listings and save, the profile remains private, the tick box will not stay unchecked.

    Any advice on this issue?

    Many thanks


  • Shane

    Quick question,

    How can we enable TinyMCE for the content editor areas as Vantage Theme allows?

    Thank you.

    • author

      vantage theme not included front end tinymce. but you may customize to add tiny mce it is easy you should add tiny mce editor js in the profile page and apply the tinymce to all textarea. It will automatically work.

    Hi Vipul,

    Quick question,

    I have Jetpack for WordPress on my site with ‘Sharing’ enabled.
    These do not appear on the Author Page.

    Is there a way to enable, or build social sharing as feature?
    Thanks again – love the plugin.


    Vipul likes this.
  • author

    Hi Shane,
    Actually we have developed the author page like a html webpage so it may not include the action hook which may display the Jetpack features.
    In this case if you want to add any feature you may need to use the action hook we have added or manually add the code to profile page.
    Actually we don’t have added any extra action hooks so you may add your code to the file & you can see the template files from plugins/profiler_vantage/tpl/author_web_template_XXX.php


  • Shane

    Thank you Vipul for your speedy reply.

    Do you this the action hook could be included in future updates?

  • author

    sorry no planing to update the plugin for now.

  • kalaja

    Error message ” please enter nickname ” after editing profile …. please help …

  • author

    In case if you should check “Web page URL:” while edit profile.
    It should not empty because without it your profile will never display.

  • callipus


    I have a conflict with this plugin I can’t add image in the media library.
    I desactivate all the plugin one by one and i found that Profiler is the problem. Please help thank you.

  • author

    Hi callipus,
    Do you have the problem on add/edit listing at front end OR at wp-admin ?

  • callipus

    in wp-admin. I can not add and even read images in the library.

  • author

    Hi callipus,
    It should not be such problem because we don’t add any kind of css/js for wp-admin section which create problem.
    Make sure the problem is because of this plugin only because we have tested for many site but no such problem.

  • callipus


    I do not find templates selection in the profile settings page since you have updated this plugin,

    Otherwise I want to use the wysiwyg froala editor with the textarea content, but it cause conflicts with the plugin how can i resolve this problem ?

    Thank you.

  • author

    Hi callipus,
    Sorry for delay I am checking the problem and get back soon if any problem.
    I will like to get in contact with me to my email ::

  • author

    Hi callipus,

    1) After new update please check the plugin settings. If all is ok or not.
    Mainly check “Profile Page Create Options” settings.

    2) We don’t have added wysiwyg froala editor or any thing. It is working with Vantage Theme only. If you share your site URL so I can find the problem that created for your site.
