Almost 15 months a go, ListingPro WordPress Directory Theme was launched and it really changed the dynamics of what was possible in a directory and listing theme or plugin. Instantly becoming the best seller and the industry leader for WordPress Directory and setting a new standard for not just a directory theme but also for WordPress it self.

We want to thank you to all our 6,500+ champions who have trusted us and invested in the success of ListingPro and we know you have been waiting for something bigger and better.  For several months ListingPro team has been working tirelessly on the biggest release since the launch, the ListingPro 2.0. So as this release is just around the corner we are very exited and hopeful that the extra wait is going to be worth it for you.

While we wrap up things on our end, we will be sharing details about new features planned for 2.0 in this blog post. For each feature we will provide screenshot and description below. We will also include a quick video for you to watch and enjoy the feature ahead of the release.

Don’t worry if you don’t see a lot below. This is a live blog post that means we will be updating it regularly to reveal new features, description, screenshot and video one by one.

Disclaimer: Features listed below are already on the roadmap for 2.0. But if there is any major technical issue we may decide to move it to the following release (example: 2.0.1 or even 2.1)

TOP 10 PAIN-KILLER DIRECTORY FEATURES

A brand new powerful extension to allow ListingPro users to change the page layout of directory related pages.

This layout customizer is not meant to allow you to edit text, color, etc. Nor this is a replacement to page builder like WPBakery for non-directory related pages.

I have a question I have several city domains and one main domain. I want to use this directory with several domains and promote each city individually. How can I do this…First thought would be to load the main site on a domain I want to promote. Then point the other city domains to the main domain. What are your thoughts. Hopefully I explained that right. So I own about 11 city domains let’s say like nearorlando.com and nearmiami.com and I want to promote them all with one main directory site like mydirectorysite.com how can I do this?

You can use multi-sites feature in wordpress or go with sub-domains.

How do you get support? I do not see a link or option anywhere. I am willing to pay for the few things I want done. But one thing is the cities, a user cannot add a city and I can not easily import all the cities into the DB.

When will this be released? As there is no timeline for 2.0.

Great to see all these updates and improvements. Key will also be the smooth migration from the current version to 2.0.

Hi, have you looked at Facebook business pages lately? They have made rating businesses very easy and at the forefront. The first time you visit a page there’s a space for writing a review and you know reviews are becoming very important these days. They are now trusted by people using the internet. Can you create that please?

Please we love your work and hope you keep it up. But we would be glad if you could add an Android or IOS apps as soon as possible because 90% of people use mobile apps to access content.
On my Google analytics when i checked the most visited device, it was Android Phone or mobile. And I also have some feedback from my visitors encouraging me to get a mobile app.
So we count on you on that project.

Some of my suggestions.

1. Image gallery slider seems not so smooth on mobile. Gallery can be smooth enough on handle.
2. While image gets uploading there can be some sort of progress bar instead now all the attachment rely on submit button ( Now images gets uploaded after hitting submit button )
3. Can have Features involving earning sign-ups. Like credits.
4. Been here option can be added.
5. Profile page of users can be made public. One user can view other user profile page. as one user can follow reviews of other.
6. Inbox for user where voucher can be sent so as to retain the user.
7. Requesting to implement modern UI. Including modern text boxes. Etc.
8. Shops online food delivery or making provision for third party delivery services.

Hello, To see:::: http://prntscr.com/kgwfio

I think they should work on improving the loading speed of the Ads Slyders. Or at least prioritize the load with respect to the rest of the section of the ads while the Slyders are loaded (Gallery of images).

It really is the only site page that takes more than 10 seconds to load.

The other issue is that the content is not prioritized. Until the images are loaded only so the rest of the content is displayed and that slows the loading speed.

Another key issue is to make the site compatible with some AMP Plugins, that
It is very important to be able to stand out in the results of mobile search.

Can you please take it into account for future updates?

They are doing very well. Congratulations.

regards

Hi,

I think the events section is amazing and I have been waiting for it for quite a long time.

Is it possible to have events without having a listing on the site.
For example, lets say my site is for restauratns, but there is an event at a convention center for food.
I dont want the convention center to be in my lisitngs. but I want the event to appear , Please let me know if you need me to further explain.

This question is in regard to the new ‘Coupons and Deals’. Will this feature provide analytics for each coupon/deal for the directory owner as well as the listing owner? This information would be valuable for me as the directory owner/admin.

Great to see new features. Importance can be given to mobile based UI. As most of the people used mobile devices instead large screen devices. Any UI changes to make user experience great at mobile.

Can you please add option to create or sugest a new category during submiting if category does not exist in directory.

That will help directory owners to create all categorys what users need.
