  • Listings directory theme, the best Directory child theme yet 21 July 2015

    Today is the day when you will get to see release of one of the best directory child we’ve released so far. Ever since its release in October 2013, Directory theme has been the best directory solution available for WordPress. With our primary focus and continuous development on it, over the last 20 months we released multiple add-ons and child themes, and today we’re releasing possibly the most important one yet – Listings Directory Child theme. Unlike child theme that cater to a specific niche such as YellowPages or Cuisine, Listings is a child theme that can be used for any kind of directory. Showcase shops, companies, tourist places, offers, events, properties, classifieds or restaurants… they will all look awesome. Strategically Structured Page Designs You Like The Most We’ve had the opportunity to experiment a lot with different child theme designs over the last 2 years. This freedom allowed us to not only release unique child themes, but also see what works for your business and what you like the most. Listings Directory theme was created with your favorite page designs in mind. For instance, we noticed most directory owners prefer the tabbed detail page design so we make sure tabs are included inside the Business Listing detail page. All the pages are structured to help you create listing directory for any purpose and yet, it will look awesome no matter for which niche it is. Quick Video Introduction Here’s quick video introduction to this theme. Take a look. Upload a nice attractive banner for a business listing With this theme, Business listing detail page is structured in a way that it can show a featured image as full width background banner. And the theme would look great with or without the uploaded image. Take a look at it Listing with featured image and Listing without featured image. This theme will allow both you and your listing authors to customize the (by default) blue background behind the listing title and basic information inside the listing detail page. The image assigned to that area is set to scale-to-fit so you don’t have to worry about image sizes too much. Manage Bookings With Directory This particular child theme has fresh looks and vibrant colors so it is very much suitable for travel and hotel industry as well.

  • Big update for Directory, child themes and add-ons 16 June 2015

    Even though Directory theme performs the best in the market when it comes to speed, it has been a concern when we were considering hundreds and thousands of listings on a single site. Team templatic has continued to find better ways to improve the performance and have provided periodic updates. Earlier today we released important updates for Directory, all child themes and most add-ons. Most of these are focused on optimization and speed improvements which should significantly improve your directory site speed. Speed optimization In order to decrease website loading times we minified several CSS and javascript files. You should be able to notice these faster loading times on the homepage, category pages and detail pages. These improvements are located inside the core Directory components so you don’t have to do anything special to apply them… just update Directory (all 4 components). Along with minifying certain files we also implemented AJAX into several widgets. Expect the following widgets to load much quicker in the latest version of Directory… All Categories List Events Calendar Recent Reviews Browse by Categories/Tags To get these improvements you’ll need to update the main Directory product (4 components) and these two add-ons: Events and MultiRating. Image optimization With version # we removed a number of image sizes that were rarely used. As a result WordPress won’t need to create as many thumbnails for each image you upload. This will not only save storage space but also make image management easier. To implement this change we updated all child themes and the following plugins Tevolution – Events Tevolution – Classifieds Tevolution – RealEstate REST API compatibility A number of you have requested this compatibility over the last few months so we decided to investigate and ultimately add it to the theme. The compatibility is achieved via the WP REST API plugin. To make your Directory theme compatible simply update it to the latest version (all 4 components) and install the REST API plugin. WP REST API will allow you to send listing information to other applications. It will also make it easier to receive information from other sources. You can learn more about the API here. Important Tevolution – Events update Along with the Events Calendar widget update mentioned earlier, the new version of the Events add-on also comes with improved recurring events. Archive pages (search page, category page, etc) will now display recurring events differently within... Read more »
