We have updated the article to see what features are already included in Citadela compared to the old DirectoryPRO theme. As you can Citadela already has way more features than our legacy themes. The best thing about Citadela is that it is a universal theme. You can use any 3rd party plugin to extend default Citadela functionality.
Because Citadela only uses blocks and standard WordPress features, it’s a solution that will be with us for years. We do not plan to replace Citadela with any newer theme. We will only make Citadela better and smarter. Start using Citadela today.
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.
All our Framework 2 themes have been supported till the 1st of March 2022. After this date, we only provide support, updates and new features to the Citadela product family. Citadela is a modern block-based solution for Gutenberg. It will be with us for the next decades.
