NOTE: Please also checkout the the following article – What’s New in ListingPro 2.0? 

ListingPro is famous for regular updates. But 1.2 Release is a game changer, there have been many great new pain-killer features added, along with many enhancements and bug fixes across the board. For some of these new features, we only have to thank our customers to have used the Feature Bucket page and deliver incredible feedbacks for new upcoming ideas for ListingPro.

Most of them are a water divider, and we’ve selected some of the best updates ever released for ListingPro and what it represents to our customers and for the directory purpose in general.

Make your Listing Detail page unique with a builtin Drag & Drop Tool

Now ListingPro has its own drag and drop system that turns even faster the management and flexibility to reorder by your preference the Listing Details Page on your directory. Now you decide where you want certain results to be shown or disable them by your preference without complexities.

See the below image for more details on how it appears in the frontend on Listing Details page.

Multi-Operational Hours for 2 different shifts (Example Morning & Evening)

One of the most awaited featured as arrived in LisitngPro. Now you can even enable this option to give to your end-users the possibility to insert multiple hours during their working season. For some businesses, they have split hours during the week/weekend that would be necessary for visitors to know their scales before getting in contact or get directions to visit the local. Also, with Multi-Operational hour, we’re also including the importance of lunchtime periods, seasonal weeks, events and others that may interfere directly with the business hours. As far as we know ListingPro is the only directory product currently available on the market that has Multi-Operational Hours. In addition, there are tones of enhancements to the time management system that addresses nearly 10 different scenarios, which will be covered as part of a separate article.

Once you enable this feature in the backend, your users will have an option to add 2nd Slot for Multi-Operational hours frontend.

Above you can see, Monday shows 2 slots for Multi-Operational hours and rest of the days it’s only 1 slot timing.

 

NearMe narrow’s search with nearest first, plus radius selector!

Now even though having the geo-location available as default, end-users can also filter by NearMe which shows listings nearest to you first. It also let you choose the exact distance with radius slider.

Suggested Nearby Listings

Nearby listings will appear on the listings details page. You have the option to select the distance of nearby listings in relation to the current listing being viewed. You can also choose to only display the listing from the same category or leave it to display random listings. The coolest part is the distance will also be indicated.

Call on Whatsapp! How Coool!

Even better to get in contact with businesses through their WhatsApp number. Now users can send messages directly and get a faster response and solve their doubts about their services, products or even before close a booking. This option brings more engagement between users and businesses without any agents in the middle that may cause delay or misunderstandings.

How about Multi-Location & Multi-Category

Now multiple businesses within a city or region can also be included with multiple locations. Also, some businesses offer multiple services and products that can be easily differed by its categories. For example, a bar can also have events with acoustic music or even DJs, and to include them into multiple categories, it got easier to register and submit the listing to the directory.

  • Awesome theme, thank you for your effort.

  • Hi Cridio, verry amzing theme!!! Verry good Job!!!
    Just a question? I have some venues that organize events and others that sell products. Is it possible to add events or a shop? If it requires additional development, how do you work?
    Thanks!

    b. people looking for a ride
    2. can listing business profiles can be shared on Facebook ?

  • Hi, I got a little question. Is there any updates regard events? I’d like to add events to certain bars like MyListing. But MyListing doesn’t have the great features as listingpro and thats why im still waiting for the 1.3 version. Thanks!

  • Nearby listings do not appear on the listings details page. And Mobile App View doesn’t come as default demo imported. Please help. My website doesn’t yet though, I just used localhost to install WordPress.

  • Can you tell me if the installation process installs/configures a completely functional site? I purchased a different product and found out I was responsible for installing and configuring several other components and trying to get them all working together. Is your demo the way the application functions on a base install or do we have to configure all the options that customers are able to enter when they create a listing? Can I get an account to review the Admin side? I tried to create an account but I never received an email with the password. I also tried the “Forgot my Password” link and it said it emails me but I never receive it at my GMAIL.com account. Is there builtin tracking so we can enter our Google Analytics code?

  • Hello, I am a proud owner of the listingpro WordPress theme. I have a question about wpbakery plugin that is included with listingpro. Apparently this wpbakery plugin doesn’t update for free, so I thought I did not have to pay for additional plugins? Please advise. I tried to contact wpbakery to notify support that my wpbakery plugin will not update and it came with a theme, but wpbakery hasn’t replied to my support ticket. It’s been about two months now. I finally bought the wpbakery plugin and the plugin still will not update (I have the activation key, but the key is useless), and I still can’t get a reply from wpbakery. I truly thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

  • Whatsapp should be separated with phone number, because the two are different number to use. We can hack your theme to make that happen but it will lose when theme update comes.

    It was an easy task for your team to separate whatsapp number with phone number.

      • Nicely built theme, easily configurable even non tech guys like me.
        I am using for India, what are the payment gate way options in India, default gateways are not popular here. Does following gate ways like payU money, Paytm, Instamojo, razorpay, and so on work with listing pro?

  • nice over view.

    The ads that merchants pay for should be somehow associated with the category that people are looking at.

    example: I am browsing for a hair dresser, at the bottom there are ads for accountants and mechanics. ????

    Should not work that way.

    • Hi Juan 🙂
      You can edit it to show ads only by category,
      instead of the entire listings available.
      You’ll find this option in Listing Settings.
      Then, next time when a user search for a category,
      the ads will be only related exclusively to this sector.
