    Hi,

    the elements are not visible on the map, because the “streetview” setting of all elements is “on”. If I set the “streetview” setting “off” the element is visible on the map.
    AND at this time I set it “off” the element catagorie produced a new catagorie with the language tag.

    For example:

    Streetview is on of all elements:

    categroies –> Flugschule (300)

    Streetview of 5 elements is “off”:

    categroies –> Flugschule (295)
    Flugschule-de (5)

    Best regards

      Hi Tom,

      Please post all detail you find on our support forum, Zoli is the author of this plugin, he’ll have a look at all the possible issues and implement them into the plugin.

      Thanks,
      Martin

    I tested the plugin and reverted back to the old theme. Keep working on it. svp

    A true migrate would also keep my theme colour and font choices. All the links to
    my photos are lost, need those too.

    Surely I do not want days of rebuilding after I just bought the theme AGAIN. There has to be benefits here to an upgrade.

      Hey Dan,

      Many thanks for your message. Migration plugin will only migrate your items, categories, locations and users. It won’t migrate all settings such as colors, backgrounds and so on.

      Have a great day,
      Martin

    Hi.
    I´m currently using Businessfinder in my website.
    We´re preparing to build a new one based on the City guide.
    Is the migration plugin able to migrate all the url structure?
    What i need to know is: the rankings and seo we currently have, still the same when migrate, or will it be lost?

    thanks

    1. Martin Kotys

      Hi,

      Thanks for your message. URLs will stay the same, you can use the Migration Plugin to migrate all your items, categories and so on.

      Have a great day,
      Martin

  4. Dmitry

    What about “comments” and “raitings”? Is the migration plugin able to migrate them too? bad if not, because it’s very hard to write it again one by one…

    1. Martin Kotys

      Hi Dmitry,

      Ratings can be migrated with the plugin. Comments are currently not supported, but we can add in that functionality in future release.

      Have a great day,
      Martin

    1. Martin Kotys

      Hi Steve,

      Thank you for your message. This plugin will migrate all your items, categories, locations and reviews from Directory and Business Finder themes into our newest City Guide theme.

      Hi Neol,

      Many thanks for your message, unfortunately we don’t do any custom design or development work due to capacity reasons. You can contact a local web developer with this enquiry.

      Thanks.

  5. Oliver Troch

    Hi, i want to import items and cat from another website (database). I build a new with cityguide. Is this also possible?

    Saludos Oliver

  6. Conny

    I have installed the City Guide them and imported my items form the Directory theme, but the items are not visible on the map, neither are they searchable.
    Do I need to consider anything specific?

    If I have to reenter all items as services I would rather stay with the old theme

    Thanks for your advice
    Conny

    Just come to drop you some thoughts.

    1) Pricing info is a bid messed for single theme, it says $40 on the Pricing and Signup page while it is $5x in demo top bar.

    2) Since we do websites for clients, a white label plug-in would be good, which shall hide all developer/author info and allow to add our own logo/branding – and allow to choose to hide some elements.

    All set, and wish you run into more success.

    Regards,
    Andrew

    1. Martin Kotys

      Hi Andrew,

      Many thanks for your message. Please see my comments below:

      1. Our themes are priced from $40. The most recent themes cost $55, but older themes cost only $50, $45 or $40.
      2. All our themes include branding settings, you can add there your logo, info and also colors.

      Have a great day,
      Martin

    I am trying to migrate Directory to Directory + but when I changed to the Directory + Theme and migrated my content I lost add new items and the “items” post type completely in the WordPress admin. The items show up on the map but when you click on them it takes you to an error page. Also there are no categories or locations, I am not sure they are migrating with the plugin. I click on it to migrate but the page doesn’t do anything.

    I really want to upgrade to Directory Plus can somebody help me or can I pay somebody on your team to do this for me. It is an impossible task with the migrations plugin.

  9. Parag Pathare

    Hi there, i am half way thru the migration attempt on my dev env (kothrud.com/dev). Two days ago i purchased premium membership and i understand that premium membership does offer all the plugins required for Directory + sold at envato.
    The above plugin does reflect compatibility to directory+ theme, however in the available features it says only Biz finder & City guide.

    The purpose of buying Premium membership was to get all the plugins required for Directory+ which per the explanation of plugins under premium membership clearly gives this impression.

    I just need your double confirmation that all the AIT Directory plugins available under Premium membership will work for Directory plus theme purchased from envato. Please confirm.

    thks,p

  10. noor

    hi, after updating my site from to directory+ i use migrations plug it to move items, does i need to clean up the database old table from the old directory theme ?
    i have more than 1000 items the site very slow now

  11. Marta

    Hi,
    I would like to ask you if in the directory+ is there a way to reorder the items different than the published date.

    Thank you very much.

    1. Zlatko

  12. Rusman

    Hi, i tried this migration plugin, to migrate items from old direction theme to the direction theme +. The migration works! But it does not migrate goole map point, addresses, reviews, opening hours ect.. see my ticket here: http://support.ait-themes.com/support/topic/121698?page=2

  13. Stephanos

    Hello, I used the directory+ theme. I download the Directory Migrations plugin but it not work.
    “Current theme is not compatible with Directory Migrations plugin :(“

  14. Marcos

    hello. i have my website on web 2.0 plugin (link below), but I did not like. It`s possible migrate to theme Directory by AIT without losing data? tks

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Marcos,
      thanks for asking – directory migrations plugin doesn’t support a 3rd party themes, it can be used for data migration form old versions of Directory and Business Finder themes.
      But there might be a solution – try to export data into CSV /excel/ file and then you might be interesting in CSV Import procedure by using our another product – here is how: https://www.ait-themes.club/documentation/#csv-import-export-plugin
      Should you have further questions, feel free to contact us back.
      Best regards,
      Zlatko.

  15. Frank

    Hi, I’m migrating since yesterday. It takes ages. Only when I refresh I see that it still working or when I click migrate again it goes on. Do I have any settings wrong. I expected half n hour not 3 days.
    Thank you
    Frank

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Frank,

      thanks for asking. The more items to more time it takes as the plugin performs also check on duplicity etc … It also depends on speed of server, the qty of data etc … Should you need the detailed technical info, please contact our dedicated support forum.

      Best, Zlatko

  16. Shibby

    Hi,

    I am currently managing a Directory site that is version 2.8. What is the current stable version. my site is http://www.countygrown.ca
    Is it safe to update both WP version and new version of directory theme. Thanks.

  18. Maslak Bilgi

    Hello there
    I bought the City Guide theme. But for us, the LANGUAGE plug-in is unfortunately not in the theme. Do you need to return the current offer and get a $ 99 package? Could you give me an idea immediately? What kind of way do I have to follow.

    Hi

    I’m running a directory listing site with around +500 listings and an event calender all in three languages (English, French, Italian using WPML). I use Listify from Astoundify and Event Calendar Pro from Modern Tribe. I’m willing to give it a try looking at another solution.
    Questions:
    1) Any solutions for migration
    2) Languages
    3) Event Calendar functions

    Cheers
    Karl
