    Hi, I need something like your citadel plugin to create a directory of music clubs in my area, but I also need to be able to create calendar events that are associated with each club. Do you have anything that would help with that?

      Hello Oliver,

      thanks for asking.
      Citadela Directory Plugin contains automated migration of data from our old FrameWork 2 directory themes. The whole process runs automatically after the activation of the plugin. Your data is migrated from old database to the new one.

      Please note that only features which are already available within Citadela Directory Plugin are being migrated. At the moment it’s Items, Categories and Locations. Once we add more features (e.g. reviews), they will also migrate automatically. Please see our documentation for more details.
