Short history of Directory theme
The first Directory theme we created in 2013. It was the first directory listing theme in the world. We have started the revolution and showcased to the WordPress community what is possible to achieve with WordPress.
Back then, there were no page builders. Shortcodes controlled everything. After a few years, we made a new version, the second generation called Directory+, based on our Framework 2. Directory+ had our AIT page builder. In 2020 we decided to refresh our Directory+ theme with a new design and new features. We renamed the theme to DirectoryPro. DirectoryPro is now a legacy theme.
