Biggest update ever – Directory+ WordPress Theme

It’s been quite time since we started creating themes for Themeforest community. We’ve just passed amazing 2000 days and during this long time we’ve released thousands of updates to all our WordPress themes. During these 5 years we’ve also invented many new and unique features and themes. One of them was also Directory WordPress theme. This unique theme, the very first one on themeforest have opened doors to online business to almost 10.000 people. It’s not a generic theme like any other, it’s a tool that will power your entire online business and allows you to achieve passive income. We’re very proud that we were the very first ones with this theme concept. We were listening to our customers and created very unusual theme update.

Why (un)usual update?

We could release Directory+ theme as a brand new theme, completely separated from the old one. Directory+ package includes several years of hard work of the whole AIT team. Our idea is to support each other and therefore all our existing Directory customers can migrate their Directory powered websites to the brand new Directory+ theme for free. In order to be able to provide support and updates also in the future we need support from your side.

  1. All existing customers get new Directory+ theme free of charge
  2. Brand new 2015 look and many new features
  3. You can extend your existing website with wide range of innovative plugins

Let’s have a look at what’s new in Directory+ WordPress theme. What features were added and what features you can find as plugins:

  • 18 new features such as Fully responsive design, AIT Page Builder, Video Header, Miles/Km support, etc.
  • Great futuristic features like 3D Map and Business View. Featured item listings and Colorized google maps.
  • Compatibility with AIT Languages multilingual plugin where for the price of 1 plugin you’ll get not only multilingual support but also language translations. These translations are continuously added and updated by translation professionals.

Why plugins?

Every project is different and has different needs. Not everyone needs multilingual support, payment gateways or bulk data import. We’ve separated these features and created individual plugins. We’re also working on new directory portal oriented WordPress themes with new unique look and features. Did you know that license for all our products on is for unlimited websites and usage? You can use all plugins not only with our Directory+ and City Guide WordPress theme, but also with themes that are currently under development.

Directory+ theme is built on our AIT Framework 2 which is continuously developed since 2012. Whole philosophy is built on wide range of settings, page builder and multilingual support. We’ve created a tool to create almost any website. Directory+ theme is fully loaded multi-purpose theme you can use for any kind of website.

What are advantages of plugins?

Plugins are and will be compatible with all our new directory portal oriented themes. We currently have 2 portal themes, but we will be releasing new ones on upcoming months.

There’s unlimited website and project usage. You’ll buy the plugin once and use it on unlimited projects.

    I received your e-mail about the Directory plus update. When I try to sign in to get the migration plugin it won’t take my User ID and Password. I can get into the Envato site. I downloaded the new Directory Plus update, but I can’t get the migration plugin. Can you help?

    I’ve bought 3 copies of the Directory theme and would like to update all three.

    Hi Martin,

    I have to say I don’t feel very confident trying to move over a live site from the old Directory to the new Directory+. Is it possible for someone who’s professional to do this for a fee?

    Many thanks…Paul

    Hi, I purchased the FINDER theme, as the banner on that page stated we could upgrade or swap anytime to Directory when the new + version was out, or that is what I thought it meant so I chose that theme thinking I can always upgrade.

    Now I see the update is NOT available for my FINDER theme? is this correct? How do I switch to the new theme from my finder theme? is it possible>

    1. Zlatko

      thanks for your question. The banner was concerning Directory theme and its update to Directory+ . Both themes are sold via Themeforest, we can not help you. Anyhow, a similar update of Business Update is possible in the future, we’ll consider it. Have a nice day,

  6. Stephanie B

    Hi, I am interested in Directory+ but have limited knowledge of WordPress, is it easy to install and set-up? If I manage to set it up is it straightforward to create my website or will I require an understanding of coding etc?

    I want to be able to create a wedding website which has information pages and visitors can search for suppliers. I’d like the suppliers to be able to have text and images on their listing and the ability to register and upload this themselves but Admin would retain overall control. I would also like to allow visitors to write reviews of suppliers with Admin monitoring comments prior to publication.

    Finally I want to be able to advertise events on here and have visitors register their attendance.

    After reading the spec I believe this theme can do all this for me but I’m concerned how easy or complicated it will be to achieve this for someone with a limited knowledge of such things!

    Any advice would be appreciated.

      thanks for purchasing one of our products. Directory+ theme as well as all the products that are sold at themeforest and due to that they can not be a part of packages that are sold at due to Evanto’s restrictions. Thanks for understanding. As a solution could be City Guide directory theme. Did you see this theme? There are some missing features by comparing with Directory+ theme which we are going to add within one of coming theme updates. Have a nice day,

    Hi Martin,

    I started a new project using the Directory + theme. It’s wonderful what I can do with it.

    I meet some limitations to achieve my project with + Directory.

    It’s not a matter of plug-ins or personal edit modifications, but the user approach (user friendly).

    I really think I have potential solutions for improvements of your Directory+ theme.

    Who can I contact to submit my ideas.

    Thanks in advance!


    1. Zlatko

      thanks for your compliments. Feel free to post your idea on our support forum or here. We appreciate any kind of feedback.

    Hello, I’m interested in the Directory+ theme and some other options so I want to take the Premium Membership.
    The business finder theme has an option “delightful special offers” is this also available in the Directory+ theme?

    The business finder and Directory+ themes are not listed on but I presume the are also available in the Premium Membership ?

    For my project its important that the business can list themselves on the site, and depending on the membership one of the options is to post special offers / deals.
    So I want to make sure thats posible.

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Niko,
      thanks for interesting in our products.
      “delightful special offer” feature is called newly as “featured items”, you can create and manage unlimited user packages:
      Business Finder and Directory+ – both are sold exclusively only on themeforest market place, therefore themes are not included in our Premium package. Instead of theme there are City Guide and Event Guide directory themes.
      Thanks for understanding.

    1. Zlatko

    Unfortunately your newest version City Guide theme is not compatible with our hosting server and a bad update has really screwed up our online business. You should check the usage problems on the City Guide theme and the plugins because it stops loading the wp login and users can’t access wp dashboard. How do unhappy customers get a refund on the theme purchase?

    1. Zlatko
