    Really surprising that you have not integrated routes on the map item in the header … it’s frankly not practical to have two map ! Especially as you use the plugin jquery for map display and that makes it easy to manage routes … I don’t understand your way of seeing things! ( Remember ‘RIP’ spotfinder … )

    1. Martin Kotys

      Hi Jack,

      Thanks for your message. Item header can include image or street view. You can also disable completely. The way we created it you can put the element wherever you like, you can also use it or non item pages or non directory websites.

      Have a great day,

    1. Emilia

      Hey Mark, do you have the latest CityGuide theme version? I can see it in the “Fullwidth Elements” section. Also you should see in Theme Admin submenu. Each item has also button “Plan My Route”. If you still can see that please contact our support centre.

      Thank you

  2. Serkan

    I’d highly recommend to include an automatic location detector particularly for mobile users. So people who need to find the place just have to click on “Get directions” and the rest is done just as a GPS system. If location detection works for the header map, then it should work for this too. It’s not so useful though to write the current address for getting the directions especially for foreign visitors.

    Another issue is the activated directions map in mobile devices. This map appears after clicking on “Get directions” makes sliding a very hard work. You can only slide within the map. All in all it’s a great idea to create such a plugin but you can make it much better with some developments. Congrats for all the job done.

    1. rjmalone

      I have the same feedback as Serkan. Locking the map from touch navigation would be better and I would also like to see default location as geolocation for directions. I’ve seen it done on other projects similar to this and it’s quite nice.

      I’m anxious to see the new updates and I’m really looking forward to an events tab or other hopefully custom tabs in a listing view. I would like to add different sections for comments/ratings, reviews (context is professional reviews, not just user comments/ratings) and events in a listing (which could possibly also show on the map).

      Regarding other components of the project, I wonder if there is a way to reduce the enormous amount of whitespace you put into the project. It’s very attractive and clean and nice for touch input but in my testing and for general purposes, I wonder if certain elements could be condensed somehow. I’m primarily thinking of the address, opening hours, amenities etc.. things like that.

      1. Emilia


        I was in the middle of Serkan’s answer :)

        Geolocation is working on this. So if it’s enabled there is no need to type “start address manually “. I’ve just enabled this on preview, of course when you tested it and you’re outside the US, no route will be find.

        Yeah, events listings is on the way. About the professional reviews, how would you like to do this?

        I can ask designer what can we do with that white spaces.


        1. rjmalone

          Hi Emilia,

          I essentially want a “professional reviews” component. Something other than customers where the only way they can give a review is if they also have a listing on the site. They have to own a listing and then they can give a short review of another company and somewhere in the comment it would link back to their listing.

          I would like this feature to be unlocked with a purchase or subscription which includes this and a couple other features. While I’m at it, I would like it to keep track of how many professional reviews a listing has.

          Right now I’m imagining reviews as a tab within a listing, I don’t want it to get long and endless scrolling on mobile let alone desktop.

          Your project is very nice and I’m looking forward to your update. I just want to find ways to consolidate some of the information so more is visible on screen at any one time. I’m not an expert at UI but I would like to see things a little less spread out, at least on my project for my needs. I’m assuming this is just some adjustments to the CSS.

          Are you able to lock/unlock the map so on touch screen a person can scroll without moving the map?

          1. Emilia

            Hi Rjmalone,

            thanks for your ideas, we’ll take a look at this proposals.

            There is “Activate Map” tab on the map while using tablet or mobile device. Visitor can scroll over the map easily.

            Have a nice day

    2. Emilia

      The first comment, you can enable geolocation in the admin and then no need to type address manually. Regarding mobile devices, we’ll check this. What device do you have? Thank you for kind words :)

    1. Emilia

      Hi Adam,

      no, this plugin is not compatible with Business Finder theme yet. This theme is build on AIT Framework 1 and plugin on the Framework 2. We will consider in 2-3 months whether there will be big update for this theme to be compatible with new plugins. Please stay tuned.

      Kind Regards

    I would like to know if auto detection of the location can work without requiring to enter your location manually at any place if you enable geolocation because I am in East Africa and I have purchased the theme and plugin.

    1. Martin Kotys

      Hi Elineema,

      Thank you for your message. Geolocation feature works in all modern browsers, if you enable it for your website it’ll find your current position.

      Have a great day,

  4. elineema

    I have purchased the plugin but when I use Plan my route to get direction, it does not give me my correct location and when I use turn by turn, I get the correct location.

    Kindly advise. I have enabled Geo-location but this does not help to get the correct location.

  5. elineema

    Get direction plugin does not detect my location, it only shows Address of default position shown on Google Map configured in header map of the page builder

  6. Steve S


    I just purchased the Directory+ theme and am loving it… My question about this plugin (and the review plugin) is: Can I disable the directions (and/or reviews) for certain items? I’m hoping to make the directions (and reviews) premium service that I can charge extra for and don’t want it to be on all my items.


  7. Shivam

    Which is better ? DIrectory + or City Guide ? Do all the plugins work properly on both or do some plugins work only on Directory + and not on City Guide?
    Which of the two is more powerful and slated to get more features and updates going forward. Which one is the most powerful and customizable? What about child themes? Do we get those on both?

    1. Zlatko

      in fact, there a little differences in design and features. We are going to add missing ones into City Guide. The rest of differences concerns price and license usage. Any of product you choose at http://www.ait-themes.CLUB comes with unlimited license usage.
      Please, kindly check your email where i have provided you of comparison directory table.
      Hope this will help.
      Best regards,

  8. Bradley Clampitt

    I am using the Solitudo theme and was curious if this integrates into the google map module, as in can someone looking at the map click on an icon to give their directions and find the closest store to them or is this separate from that module/plugin?


  9. Bradley Clampitt

    Hello Zlatko, Thank you for the link but the first link is the same as this, isn’t it?

    A person named “Santa” replied to my support questions related to this back in November for the Solitudo theme saying it will be added in the future but didn’t have a set date. If this will work in its place then that is perfectly fine for me.

    thanks for your reply!

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Bradley,
      thanks for coming back on this. Yes, you are right about the links. I think i did not understood correctly. Regarding searching by ZIP code – we have a plan to implement it and estimated time of arrival could be not earlier than in may this year due to unexpected issues we had to solve. Thanks for understanding and your patience.
      Best regards,

    I bought this pluggin, anytime i try to use geolocation I got this message.

    Could not determine your location, check if geolocation is enabled for this site

    Also if I check in the console I have 2 warnings.

    The key “target-densitydpi” is not supported.
    jquery-migrate.min.js?ver=1.4.1:2 JQMIGRATE: Migrate is installed, version 1.4.1
    3custom.js?ver=4.6.1:57 disabled
    script.js?ver=4.6.1:124 getCurrentPosition() and watchPosition() no longer work on insecure origins. To use this feature, you should consider switching your application to a secure origin, such as HTTPS. See for more details.

    Do I need HTTPS to run this pluggin??

    I have enabled geolocation in the pluggin options, but I still have the same error.

    Any thougts??

    The rest of the pluggins I have installed are all working properly.

    Many thanks
