Multiple packages & Permissions manager feature

Multiple packages & Permissions manager feature

Citadela Directory plugin received a significant update last week. Together with dozens of minor changes, we’ve released 2 new features in one update: Multiple Packages & Permissions Manager. Yes, that’s right, you can now set up a free package that is limited and then an unlimited number of premium packages.

When we first started planning the new Citadela theme and its plugins, we decided to build on the best e-commerce solution – WooCommerce. WooCommerce has not only the most extensive collection of payment gateways; it is extendable, fully supported by Automatic and works flawlessly with the WordPress ecosystem.

What have we done now? Citadela Directory plugin works as a layer on top of WooCommerce and extends its functionality. You use WooCommerce to add subscription packages and administer directory permissions directly inside the WooCommerce package.

It’s the most straightforward way you can imagine. After you set up your packages in WooCommerce, they are automatically interconnected to the Citadela Directory plugin. It’s a fast, secure, extendable and future proof solution. Please have a look below to see how simple it is to set it up.

Are you a newcomer in the subscription setup? Then you welcome detailed documentation on how to set up monetization on your website. See Multiple Listing Subscription.

All Citadela code in our theme and plugins is strictly following all WordPress approved codex. That way, if you’re a skilled developer, you can extend it to your needs (or hire a company to do it for you). Do not forget that Citadela is a free theme released, reviewed and checked by WordPress people. Our free Citadela Directory Lite plugin is also on WordPress.org, and it fulfils the highest WordPress standards.

This is still just a beginning, guys. New features are coming very soon 🙂

  1. Hi there, thank you for this major update!

    I would like to know if “Item Gallery” will be available (now there is only featured image in the item detail page).
    And what about Event and Special Offers?
    Thanks a lot

    1. Hello Denis,

      The process of selling on the front end from the point of view of item owner – purchase directory subscriptions is as follows:
      1. user chooses the package https://preview.ait-themes.club/citadela/directorypro/register-to-submit-your-items/.
      2. he’ll read the details of the package https://citadela.wpthemes.sk/product/premium-subscription/
      3. goes to the cart https://citadela.wpthemes.sk/cart/
      4. and consequently the accounts is going to be created (foreign registration process) https://citadela.wpthemes.sk/checkout/
      5. payment procedure (it must be set in woocommerce settings before)
      6. then the customer should already be logged in with the ability to add or manage the item custom post types etc..
      steps described above will be added to the documenatation too)

      Best regards!

  2. Hey!

    Thanks so much, for making Citadela better and better!
    But why should I allow the user to do a guest buying?

    Doesnt he need an account if he wants to submit a listing?

    Thanks,
    Denis

    1. Thanks for additional question.The reason for those e-shop owners who’d like to allow purchase without registration (e.g. some goods) and yet selling packages without registration is not possible.

  4. I really like your new directory. Looks sharp. I am needing to create a website that has a directory that can be seen only by logged on members though. I don’t see that you all have a membership plug in yet for this type of thing, but do you think I could use a 3rd party plug in and resitrict the directory pages to only those logged on? i.e. Ultimate Member? (We are selling memberships too, as well as listings, so it makes it a little complex.
