    Hello, I would like to ask if I could change the “search keyword, category, location” texts from the search bar? Also, is there a way to put the search bar inside the slider while using the search form? One last question is there any update about the design to be expected soon? Thank you very much much!

      Yes, there is the option to choose Revolutions Slider instead of image, video, none or google map to be used in Header element together with Search Form. Please also note there is no option to manage the layout of the header in administration.

      Lastly, we are currently working on adding new features to Citadela Directory plugin which is our highest priority except keeping our products up-to-date on a regular basis. In other words, our goal is to make Citadela Directory the best directory plugin to create any listing website.

  5. Steve

    Can this directory listing have image previews for listing entries, which when clicked, plays an embedded video within where the image was, without having to do to the detail of the listing? If there was no video behind it, it would instead play the soundcloud link, and if nothing behind that, an mp3 file

    1. Zlatko

      Hello there,

      Thank you for asking. We are sorry, it is not available by default. Embedded video (behind the image of the video) is going to be displayed once you click on item n order to shows item detail page. Soundcloud link is visible on the listing in the search page, but clickable just of opening item detail page, too.

      Best regards!

  7. Rob

    Hello, I am interested in purchasing this theme, however I have noticed that the demo is very slow, is that because of the software or the server? Thanks

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Rob,

      Thanks for writing in.
      The issue with slow speed of loading and processing of data in Directory themes is caused by certain technical limitations related to the WordPress platform itself.
      Directory WordPress themes may also require powerful dedicated server to allow directory portal type of websites run smoothly.

      Considering Directory themes are still WordPress themes, we have to follow WordPress standards and available WordPress queries to administer data stored via wp-admin area. Loading thousands records at once and processing them all using standard WordPress codex functions requires powerful server. The same applies to standard WordPress Posts in case you use them in a way our Item Custom Post Type are being used in our themes.

      Please note, that WordPress themes cannot be confused with custom made portal solutions which are tailor made for certain measure of portal website.

      Please have a look also at our newest product with Citadela directory layout (DirectoryPRO coming soon as well as new features) that we have created on Gutenberg editor compatible with Elementor and Divi builders. During creation we aimed to make it as flexible and fast as possible: https://www.ait-themes.club/new-directory-feature-item-extension/

      Should be still interesting in DirectoryPRO template there are some options how to speed up the site: https://www.ait-themes.club/knowledge-base/speed-up-website-using-caching-plugin/

      Have a good day!

    I am looking for a directory for social work purposes. I am actually making an organisation called I love human and our aim is to help people who struggle in life. We would love to have a directory where people can add homeless or sick people for example with their location. Anyone who want to help, just have to browse by location and find the nearest person who needs help. Can it be done with your script please?

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Emmanuel,

      Thanks for writing in. Yes, you can create listing portal with any kind of purpose.

    Directory Pro Is there a way to limit the item extension to a specific category, as it would show on some items but not some others. Or If not could this something that could be customized by your services Thank you

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Nick,

      Thank you for writing in. Unfortunately, it’s not something that’s in our future plans at this time. Anyhow, we’ll reconsider your interesting idea and make decision. Currently we are working on adding new features to our newest Citadela project: https://www.ait-themes.club/citadela-progress-report-january-2021/. Based on the current planning we’ll get back to implement additional features in the 2nd half of this year. Thanks for your understanding and patience.

    I am using Directory Pro which feat perfectly our project. A couple of questions

    1. Is there a way to create a template OR templates, that customer would use in Easy Admin, that would include items needed to be publish with the listing and that the customer could not remove/modify.
    2. Can the “feature” section be modified in order to have customer in Easy Admin choose for a range of options and not have to complete the add/remove function
    3. Items extension, can the plugin be copied (doubled) to offer separate sections having the same purpose but to offer separate features

    Thank you very much

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Nick,

      Thank you for writing in.
      1. Yes, you should manage customer’s (user) packages that includes required (not claimable) items. In order to see how to manage customers abilities, please check out the documentation:
      – https://www.ait-themes.club/doc/users-registration-packages-options/
      – https://www.ait-themes.club/documentation/#permissions-manager-plugin
      2. We are sorry, admin should create as many as desired different user packages with pre-defined available capabilities and options.
      3. There are different fields that can be created to extend Items Custom post types, it is up to users/customers which one to be used: https://www.ait-themes.club/doc/admin-side-of-item-extension-plugin/

    Hi thanks for the previous replies, Great theme

    How can I customise the generic email sent after registration. Claim and Listing expiration are in the Theme option. But I cannot find the other ones. Thank you

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Nick,

      Thanks for asking. We are sorry, currently there is no option for that. Unfortunately, it’s not something that’s in our future plans at this time. Anyway, once we finish the 3rd phase of planned features, we’ll have a look closer at it: https://www.ait-themes.club/citadela-progress-report-january-2021/

          Hello Nick,

          Thanks for additional question. Well we have never try this functionality with a 3rd party developer’s plugin. Perhaps further theme/plugin customisation is needed.

    Good day,

    I need to update my Directory Theme. Unfortunately Paypal declined payment operation. Please advise any other option to pay, if possible.


    1. Zlatko

      Zdravstvujte Alex,

      Thank you for your reply. There is an option to manage it via STRIPE gateway manually (once the payment proceed, we’ll set the package you have decided for. All we need is just a bit info: which package (Lifetime or Full Membership) do you prefer. And if there are some requirements on providing some detailed info on the invoice, you should fill in company data under your account (if i am right your user name Alex-2017). If you are intended to use another account, please let us know. Consequently our account manager will arrange all necessary info for you.

    Hi thank you for previous replies.

    I currenty use Directory Pro as it has what I do need, except the items extension, the one in Citadela on the other hand is perfect. I am therefore in a quandry, to switch or not to switch. So please could you answrer the following

    1. Could the “Items Extension” plugin in Citadela be modified to work with Directory pro (even if that involve paid customisation)


    2. Is there a “Page Builder” similar to the one in Directory Pro that is available for Citadela (3rd party or not) that you could recommend, one similar to WP Bakery or YOUR Page Builder, I am unfamiliar with WP BLocks and having to move from a Directory from another vendor, after a disapointing and costly experience, I would like to reconstruct the webiste without wasting time.

    3. Are the packages the same in Citadela than in Directory. meaning each one can be assigned options (hours not hours, webiste not website). I have read that is possible with the WOO Directory subscriptions on the Citadela website, I just want to ensure that is available or if not yet when will it be ?

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Nick,

      Thank you for your reply.
      1. We are very sorry, we have no plan at this moment as we focus on adding and improving features for Citadela directory package.
      2. Yeah, there is such a builders that works with blocks (not older classic editor): Elementor, Divi: https://www.ait-themes.club/citadela-doc/compatibility-with-elementor-and-divi/
      3. Yes, all features regarding DirectoryPRO are available for Citadela even more. There are 27 options for payment gateways while DirectoryPRO used to use only 3 types.
      All necessary info can be found at: https://www.ait-themes.club/citadela-documentation/ or feel free to contact our support forum directlyby adding the questions about using Citadela products via the following link: https://system.ait-themes.club/support/add-question

The feature is going to be added for Citadela directory pack within coming weeks/months (multiple vendors, job offers, events with calendars, news etc) according the plan posted at: https://www.ait-themes.club/citadela-progress-report-january-2021/

      – documents files we would recommend to be used as embed part of the content

      – the latest request in regards job offers functionality too, anyhow our engineers have put this on the roadmap, and we expect to roll it out in the near future. When it’s available, we’ll be sure to let you know if you subscribe for the newsletters. Thank you again for writing in and taking the time to provide your requests.

    Hello, Can I attach a product to a business listing.

    Example. The business owner (or the admin) creates their listing, then the admin creates a product. Can the admin attach that product to the business listing so that it shows in the products list and also on the single listing page?

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Guillo,

      Thanks for being interested in our directory products. We are sorry, there is the option only if admin or user add embed link into content editor (wysiwyg) in Item detail page: https://www.ait-themes.club/doc/set-up-your-item-post-directory2/

      Thanks for writing in.
      We are sorry, we don’t offer any additional services related to websites of themes users except the following ones: https://www.ait-themes.club/services/ . In general, support covers mainly finding solutions for problems and helps users to find the way in which to use any of our products. And if there is a bug we’ll fix it as soon as possible and once everything is double checked we release the new theme for the market. Unfortunately we are not capable of working on user’s custom websites.

      The theme comes with built in page builder and theme options which allows to manage colours, layout settings typography very easily: feels free to have a look at video tutorials in order to see how to manage it on your own: https://www.ait-themes.club/documentation/#video-tutorials-for-ait-themes

    Does your directory theme allow you to set up recurring subscription payments for venues / businesses that pay? I know you have payment integration but couldn’t see anything about reccuring billing.

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Darren,

      Thanks for being interested in our products. Yes, recurring payments is available feature and depending on the theme you choose this option can be achieved by using Paypal subscription plugin or WooCommerce plugin. In order to see the differences between both themes, please check out the comparison table in this article: https://www.ait-themes.club/next-generation-directorypro/
