    Your documentation is much more a Marketing oriented stuff … and most options and features are not explained or not well explained in your Documentation and Knowledge base …
    Regarding the “Advanced Filters” plugin, the basic features/information are missing too …
    Please what are the different Field types of Filters (Text, Text area, Checkbox, drop-down select, calendar date, date range, birthday, …) ) ?
    Thank you & Regards,

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Chris,

      thanks for your feedback and comments.
      Mentioned above Filters Filed Types belongs to Contact Form – the section “Input Type”. You can use different filters instead, for example: wifi, free parking, 24/7 support, …

      Should you have further questions, please contact us back.

      Best regards!

      Hello Charlotte,

      thanks for writing in. Advanced Filter has been designed to extend Items custom post type. We are sorry, Events Pro custom post type is not compatible with this plugin.

      Kind regards!

      Hello Neil,

      thanks for asking. Only one theme can be installed on the site, but you can use any of our products on WordPress CMS Multisite, no problem.

      Kind regards!

      Hello there,

      Thank you for being interested in our products. The plugin extends some directory themes and detailed info can be found in the documentation – in case of DirectoryPRO and Business Finder+ themes there are awesome font icons without option to choose own icon by default (in panel administration):

      Please kindly also note we are currently working on adding new features to our newest Citadela directory project: where the option to add own icon for Advanced Filters is planned.
      In order to compare DirectoryPRO (or Business Finder+, City Guide, Food Guide, Event Guide) with Citadela directory, please visit:

      Have a good day!

      Hello there,

      Thanks for asking. Once the plugin is activated it comes with support for each of available language localisations. In other words, it is not needed to manage the translations of .pot files.

      Kind regards!

    Здравствуйте. Плагин не переведён на русский
    И не показывают иконки
    Хотя, плагин перевода установлен

    1. Zlatko

      Zdravstvujte Stanislav,

      Thanks for writing in. You’ll get the answer via support forum asap, anyhow: Filters are assigned to Items – thus they should be added manually as the rest of the content. The theme with AIT Languages plugin provides the translations on the front-end and back-end only (admin panel, page bulder, pre-made custom post types, elements, theme options, shortcodes, etc)
      The more info you’ll find in the documentation:

      Kind regards!
