You can configure block layout, item size, which category or location to use, filter out only featured items and so on. You can even control which fields to display.

  1. Great additon, much needed as well.
    Cant wait to see whats coming next.

    One question though, I’m using one your provided layouts and made some changes, whats the best way to ensure everything saves when the new update is coming?
    Because I saw everything resets to basic when trying a new layout and rather keep the changes, new pages and items. 😅

    Or can I keep the layout and just add the new blocks etc?

  2. Great 😍
    Please provided more detailed documentation. Perhaps it is simple to you but not to me 🤓

    1. Hi there,

  3. Hi AIT Themes,

    it would be great and more important to add the features that the predecessor of Citadela Directory offers: In DirectoryPRO one could define individual Item Map Pins for Item Categories. They are not yet available in Citadela Directory.

    I cannot switch to the new products without this feature.

    Cheers, Frank

    1. Hello Frank,

      Many thanks for your feedback. Yeah, we have the more request on this feature and have already analysed the solution. Custom Icons feature will be definitely developed and added into Citadela directory plugin within coming weeks/months.

      Thanks for your patience and understanding.

      Kind regards!

  4. Hi Zlatko,

    thanks for your reply.

    I remember we started this discussion more than two months ago. Now I read that it will be available “within coming weeks/months”. This is vague and of no help. It could mean that we don’t see this until the end of the year.

    The missing feature is a show-stopper for several of my websites to migrate from DirectoryPRO to Citadela Directory: I cannot sell my customers that the carefully designed Item Map Pins for Item Categories will be replaced by these small standard Icons that Citadela offers right now.

    If you want Citadela Directory to replace DirectoryPRO it would be a good move to not forget basic features like this.

    Cheers, Frank

    1. Hello Frank,

      Thank you very much for getting back on this.
      Thank you for taking the time to tell us why our service failed to meet your expectations.
      Anyhow, I would like to assure you that we value your business, and would like to address your concerns as quickly and correctly as possible.
      I understand your frustration, and I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience we have caused you.

      Time to time we must re-consider estimated times of arrival due to unexpected issues we had to solve asap. This causes some delay in our planning.

      Thanks a lot for your understanding.

      Have a good day!

      1. Thanks for coming back, Zlatko.

        Now what can I learn from your reply? I don’t see any specific time frame for the missing feature. Does it mean that you don’t have any?

        When can I start making plans to work with Citadely Directory?

        Cheers, Frank

        1. Hello Frank,

          Thank you for reply. Currently we are working on Events on the map feature and finishing he option for new custom post types. Once finished we continue with Special Offers feature. In the meantime we have released the 2nd quarter report where you’ll find detailed requested info about planning etc.

          1. Hi Zlatko,

            nothing in your replies has anything to do with the missing feature in Citadela Directory:

            Individual Item Map Pins for Item Categories

            Am I missing something?

            Cheers, Frank

          2. Hello again,

            as mentioned in the past, the task has been already analysed and made decision in which why should be designed …, but kindly also note we have no estimated time of arrival set up due to the other requested features with higher priority. Waiting list mostly depends on customer request and we do our best to manage it in the near future asap.

            Best regards!

  5. Any chance an ad block is coming soon? Would like an easier way to include ad spots to Citadela directory layouts.

      1. Sure, Being able to put blocks to show advertising banners, AdWords etc.. would help with the design process. An example would be on the directory One template, showing an advertisement on top of a page or headers and footers, sidebars, within posts etc..

        1. Maybe standard WordPress Code or Embed block is what you’re looking for? With reusable block features you can even set it up once and use on several pages or posts. Please let me know if I understood you correctly. Thanks.

  6. Hi Martin,
    A question, you said the big update should release in june. Are you still on track (sort of) or do you expect a bigger delay on this update.

    Just eager to try the new functions. Best of luck. 🍀

    1. We have released the new version early in the morning. Please check out my most recent blog post: https://www.ait-themes.club/say-goodbye-to-the-citadela-directory-plugin/

      We’re already working on Item Types feature that will be released soon. It’s a complex feature that will require lot of coding, but you will love it!
