- Directory continues to improve. Version 1.1.2 is now available! 6 March 2014
Today we have some good news for all Directory owners as the popular theme has just received another important update. The update consists mostly of smaller improvements and bug fixes, however there are a few features thrown into the mix… Change your URLs with the Custom Permalinks feature Up until today you could use the back-end to only change the name of your post types, but not the URL base. Using a brand new back-end section available from Tevolution ⇨ Custom Permalinks, you can choose whether to delete or modify the slug for each of your post types. Assuming only Directory is installed (no add-ons), here’s what you can change/delete from the Custom Permalinks section: Listing base (for detail pages) Listing categories base Listing tags base Author base City base (edit only) Post type, category and tag base for every post type you created using the Custom Post Types section Keep in mind that base slugs for custom post types exist for a reason. Removing them can cause URL conflicts between multiple content types. Consider yourself warned :) Custom CSS has been revamped The custom.css file has always been the go-to choice for most users when it comes to customizing a theme. However, problems with this file started occurring when we introduced the automatic update feature as it would overwrite all theme files – including custom.css. In Directory 1.1.2 everything you add to custom.css is stored inside the database, allowing you to update the theme without worrying whether you performed a backup or not (Quick tip: When in doubt, backup :) ) To make the file more accessible for editing we introduced a new back-end section. Appearance ⇨ Custom CSS Editor is the place where you’ll be making quick CSS edits from now on. If this is your first time hearing about custom.css, check out this article… it might help. New widget available: All in One Search The new widget works in similar fashion as the Search by Address widget usually located inside the Header area. However, instead of focusing on keywords + location, this one focuses on searching keywords from all types of content on the site. The widget can be used to search through tags, reviews, categories and even custom fields. You can also choose whether to search site-wide or just within the current city. Lots and lots of little improvements I mentioned inside our last newsletter (and... Read more »

- Create a local restaurant directory with WordPress and Cuisine 4 February 2014
Cuisine is another child theme for Directory. It’s the first child theme to alter the functionality as well as the design. It’s nothing major, but enough to transform the good ol’ Directory theme into a powerful WordPress restaurant directory. Is this your first time hearing about the parent Directory theme? Click here to learn more. With Cuisine, Directory is seeing probably the biggest makeover so far. Unlike clean and simple designs available with the parent theme, everything in Cuisine is curvy, stylish and in tune with what most restaurants-related websites look like. If you happen to be a fan of the standard slider-on-top approach, you can easily rearrange the elements to suit your needs. Just like the parent Directory theme, the homepage in Cuisine is entirely widgetized. Cuisine comes with a fully responsive design. To see it in action visit the demo site with your phone or just resize the browser window on your computer. In terms of new functionality, it’s all about the new default custom fields. In order to make the directory seem more authentic, we’ve added new custom fields such as Price Range, Waiter Service, Suitable for Children, Parking, Wi-Fi and more. Because of these fields, the focus of listing detail pages was changed as well. Instead of showing the description first, detail pages will first show the custom fields related to the listing and make the description available as a separate tab. Unlike the parent theme which displays the map inside a tab, Cuisine shows a small map no matter which tab is currently active. Share your work and get a free plugin For the last few weeks every Directory owner can get a free add-on of their choice by sharing either their translations or a city CSV file. In case you translated the Directory theme into your native language, click here to share the PO file. Also, if you happen to have a complete city CSV file for a particular country, share it here.

- Create a stylish yellow pages directory with YellowPages child theme 23 January 2014
YellowPages is our third child theme for Directory. Similar to Emblem and Explore before it, YellowPages is here to offer another, totally different approach to the popular Directory theme. Some of the child themes that are in the works will offer new features as well, but for now… it’s all about the design. Is this your first time hearing about the parent Directory theme? Click here to learn more. Inspired by popular yellow pages and classified sites, YellowPages features an attractive white and yellow color combination. All theme pages (particularly homepage) have been designed to make content as easy to find as possible. The big and prominent sidebar works great for displaying categories and most of all makes navigation through the site very consistent. YellowPages comes with a fully responsive design. To see it in action visit the demo site with your phone or just resize the browser window. Just like in the parent Directory theme, homepage in YellowPages is entirely widgetized. This means you can swap the homepage slider for a map in literally 10 seconds. Category pages are designed to showcase filtering widgets inside the sidebar, but changing that is just a few clicks away. Quick reminder: Directory 1.1 is available Released last week, the Directory 1.1 update brings by far the biggest improvements of any update since the initial release. I’m personally most excited about the localization improvements since they make Directory soooo much easier to translate compared to before. We hope you like the new design and the way Directory is growing, specially since the child themes will get even better in the upcoming months. On a similar note, what do you think about YellowPages?

- Directory 1.1 is out with post upgrade functionality and better localization 16 January 2014
Even though the Directory theme was launched almost 3 months ago, we never really stopped working on the theme. During this time several small improvements have been made, but nothing that would warrant a blog post. Today we are ready to unveil Directory 1.1 with a few substantial tweaks that have been in the works for a while now. Post upgrade functionality Before today’s update regular members could not change the active price package (payment plan) while the submitted post was active. They had to wait for it to expire and then choose the price package during the renewal process. With this update each member can click on “Upgrade” from his/hers user dashboard and initiate a process during which they’ll be able to select a new price package. The checking out part is the same as before; any payment gateways you might have installed will work with the upgrade functionality as well. From the management perspective, the functionality is pretty simple. Once a user upgrades a post the new price package will be applied starting with the day the upgrade was made. In other words, the remaining time from the previously active price package will be lost. In order to keep things simple we’ve decided against options such as the ability to upgrade by paying the difference amount. Such functionality would be very hard to implement and also something that would rarely be used. From the information we gathered, most upgrades will happen from free to premium packages, not premium to premium. With this update we’ve also included a new email notification. The admin (you) will be notified every time someone upgrades a post. A separate notification will also be send if the “Pre Bank” payment option is selected so you know to expect to see money in your bank account. Translating Directory just got easier Because of its segmented design and a total of 4 major components, Directory was much harder to translate than most other WordPress themes. With the 1.1 version we are addressing this in three ways… 1. Separate front-end and back-end strings With Directory 1.1 you will find two PO files for each plugin and the actual theme; one for front-end and one for back-end strings. By separating the strings into two different files you’ll finally be able to translate just the front-end. This is something we’ve wanted to do for quite some time but just... Read more »
