      Hi Peter,

      Thank you for your message. You can purchase Premium membership for $225 and get access to all our themes, plugins and graphics. It’s only $1.70 per item and more items are coming soon! 🙂

      Have a great day,

    Hi there I only need the plugins. I would be happy to pay a special price for these. Especially as I’m not happy with the Directory theme and import plugin that I purchased. I’m very happy with City Guide which made my Directory purchase redundant after only a few days. Can you hep me with a special deal on the plugins as I have already wasted $60 on the directory theme which I will never use as City Guide is better.

    1. Martin Kotys

      Hi Peter,

      You can upgrade from your Single Theme purchase to Premium membership for only a price difference. We unfortunately don’t have “plugins only” package.


        1. Zlatko

          you can upgrade to Premium membership obly when you are logged in, and when you have already purchased any of our products on http://www.ait-themes.CLUB. Upgrade is possible to perform during first 30 days after purchase the product. Should you have more questions, please post them in our support forum, which will enable to answer you most efficiently.
          Thanks for understanding.

    I see on the Directory theme there is a big update coming soon. When will that be? It’s had that on the page for months now.


    1. Zlatko

      Although we are hardly working on new update, you are right: it takes much more time than we have expected. New plugins, new features, styling and 2 different designs of the theme and yet, there is much more ;). The latest datum we have set up on 6.July 2015. We strongly believe we mange it.
      Kindest regards,

    Is possible to set a theme to have different language for diferent countryes from where it is accesed.

    For example if im from USA i would see the website in english….or if im from France…i would see it in france.

    Do i have an option to turn on or off this …?

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Bogdan,
      thanks for your questions. We have a plan to add this feature within one of coming theme updates. And yet, it will be switchable function. Please stay tuned 🙂 , we will keep you informed about the release.
      Kind regards,

    Hey, I am unhappy with a directory theme I bought from someone else. I would like to switch. We do not know how to code. Are we able to add new catagories without having to code. Like instead of business, pets, etc.
    Please let me know asap.

    Hi Zlatko! I have purchased the Directory Plus them and 3 plugins, and now realize I should have purchased the upgrade for everything. I have now spent about $190 for the theme and 3 plugins. Is it possible to upgrade and pay the difference which would be about $50? Thanks for anything you can do to help 🙂

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Erik,
      Directory+ is sold exclusively on themeforest by Envato group and due to some restrictions we are not allowed to offer theme discounts.
      Regarding purchased products – it is possible to upgrade for a difference in pricing between Premium and the one products that bought for a highest price.
      please also have a look at the following article with detailed information:
      Thanks for understanding.

      1. AS

        I have the same question. If you could please reply.
        Can I use the announcement plugin with other (non AIT) third party wordpress themes?

          1. AS

            I have 3 questions:

            (1) Is there a short code that needs to be used for announcement bar to be functional? I used the plugin and text as is and it doesn’t work at all.

            (2) In my earlier question (asked on plug home page) it was informed that plugin works with NON AIT themes. However, plugin details given in WordPress dashboard has a description ” This plugin works only on themes from AIT for now.” Please let me know if there is an update and I can use the plugin for non AIT.
            (3) Where I can find Q&A and resolved issues asked from other users? This will help to search the issue if already been discussed in the support forum and resolved. Your knowledge base or support sections doesn’t give access to the past Q&A.

    I would like to make the Announcements Bar to look like in the demo. Can you kindly post the code here? Also, if you link to a style, can you post the code to add to the CSS file?
