    Hello prompt in version City Guide Business Membership includes such elements of the Claim Listing Filters and Advanced, Item Reviews, or they will need to buy separately?

    1. Zlatko

      Yes. Business membership doesn’t include plugins. If you plan to have an access to mentioned plugins for a one prices included all new released plugins compatible with City Guide WordPress theme, you need to choose Premium Membership.
      Thank you and have a great day!

    1. Zlatko

      thanks for your question. You can predefine filters in form of checkboxes in your admin and then assign your items to them.
      Have a nice day,

    1. Zlatko

      thanks for your feedback. Would you mind to share with us which features you would like to add? Item Extension plugin extends Items element, and it is going to be updated with new features. Moreover, a specialized brand new Ait Event plugin is almost finished and should be released in a few weeks.
      Have a nice day!

    Is it possible to setup a separate page for multiple cities (ie. New York and Phoenix) and then when someone click on a taxonomy category for the page it only displays the items for that catagory that are in that particular city.

    If further, is it possible to display only certain taxonomy locations on a city page. For example, I only want to display the sub-locations (the bronz, queens etc) on the new your page. I don’t want to display sub locations like Tuscon on the New York page.

    thx in advance

    1. Zlatko

      thank you for questions. First of all my apologies for delayed answer.
      Directory theme can find according category, location or keywords the user enter. Please have a look at documentation how to assign items to category and locations at:
      Secondly, yes, it depends on how you create your sub-locations etc. Moreover, you can extend items with Item Extension plugin.
      Hope you will find information useful. Should you have additional questions feel free to contact us.
      Have a nice day, Zlatko.

  3. Giovanni


    in this page:
    is described a way to edit custom fields manually, as alternative to this plugin.

    I’m using directory+ but it seems that the directory structure is different. It is not possible to edit custom fields anymore?

    1. Zlatko

      Ciao Giovanni,
      grazie per fare la domanda :)
      You are right, the documentations you have posted is related to Directory theme. Therefore, please kindly have a look at documentation here: where you can find City Guide theme /the way of working with the theme is the same as with Directory+/ or directly click here: etc.
      Hope this will help! Have a great day!

  4. Victor Mendes Gomes

    I can create multiple extensions of different items? Example: Extension for restaurants (menu, payments, main courses, etc.); extension to clothing stores (brands, types of clothing, etc.); extension to hospitals (specialties, examinations, etc.)? Or I can create only one entensão item that I have to use everywhere?

  5. Bicepper


    Is it possible to be separated by a tab?
    I want to use in item pages like,
    “Tab 1” = Item Extension for Tab1,
    “Tab 2” = Item Extension for Tab2,
    “Tab 3” = Item Extension for Tab3, …..

  6. Ty

    Hi there, a couple questions before purchasing:

    1. Are you able to place these item custom fields anywhere on the item page? I don’t want them at the bottom of the page, and would like them at the top for example. Is this possible?
    2. Also, is it at all possible to split up the custom fields and place certain ones in different locations on the item page? Example: text field at the top of the page, checkboxes at the bottom of the page, etc.

    Thanks for any clarification.

    1. Zlatko

      thanks for asking, i apologize for delayed answers:
      1. for the moment it is not possibly by default. Anyhow, the plugin is going to be released with absolutely new design and features, it should be available in some weeks.
      2. I will place your request on a paper, possible it will be included in one of next release.
      Have a great day, Zlatko

        1. Zlatko

          Hello Damon,
          thanks for coming back on this. Due to changed priority and due to some unexpected issues we have postponed update of mentioned plugin. The latest info basis on our planing. Thanks for your understanding.
          Best regards,

    I just bought Directory and I don´t see how potential users are able to register themselves in a pretty page. All I scan see when I try to register myself (as if I were an user) is the boring WordPress profile screen. Is it supposed to be like this?

    Am I doing anything wrong? Or do I need to get any extension?


  8. Daniel

    I like the look of the directory and see that users can submit their listing and manage it.

    However, is there simple way to allow users to submit articles which can be autorised/declined?

  9. Alberto

    I’m interested to buy Directory+ theme. Is possible with this plugin personalize fields of the posts?
    For example I want to add a second telephone field. Is it possible?

    1. Emilia

      yes you can add another telephone number. We have also Extension plugin which allows you to put more fields on item detail page.

      Kind Regards

  10. noor

    Hi, i need to enhance the search result by adding keywords field using item extension instead of adding it in the item description, so does the search engine find the keywords added in the item extension field and display the item in the search result?

    1. Emilia


      thank you for message. We have some plans to improve the search engine. I’ll discuss your idea with our production team.

      Have a nice day

  11. Adam Phillips

    Hi I just bought the Directory+ theme through envato/themeforest however, it did not come with some plugins i wanted. I would like to bye the full membership instead. Can I be credited the amount of the theme I just bought?

    1. Martin Kotys

      Hi Adam,

      Thank you for your purchase. Directory+ theme package does not include any extension plugins. You can purchase them separately on our website or buy a Premium membership to get access to all our plugins and themes.

      Premium Membership however does not include Directory+ theme as this is being sold exclusively on themeforest and therefore we cannot resell it on our own website.

      Have a great day,

  12. erik


    I just purchased this plug in and it is not working. I added the date field. It lets me input a date but does not show on final item post. I also added a link field and this is working fine.

  13. Tomas Gennari

    Hi, can this Item Extension plug-in be combined with the CSV Import / Exporte plug-in?
    Meaning, once I create the Item Extensions, can I bulk upload them along with the items with the CSV Import?
    Best and thanks,

  14. YVSRAO

    hi, i have purchased this item extension.. i want to add another kind of field type.. drop down to select from.. is it possible to add that

  15. Shane


    Id like to our members to be able to add Soundcloud & Video to the items page? Would the best way is to do that through the item extension plugin?

  16. Muhammad Akhtar Mehmood

    We bought following Directory+ theme.

    Please do let us know how can we add custom fields for listing and how can we add these custom field in search.

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Joshua,
      you can add 8 types of fields: Text, Checkbox, Number, Date, Range, E-mail, Telephone, URL. Custom HTML can be added into standard visual editor of the item, only.
      Best regards,

  17. Tony Reno

    We would like to have Directory Listing clients be able to enter all of their listing content through the front-end form. We don’t want to allow them to access the back-end to do this. Currently, the front-end sign up form only allows three basic fields. Will this extension allow us to expand on that? Thank you.

  18. Chris

    I have a simple question:
    I need to set 10 keywords for each item in Directory+ theme. I need that this keywords are searchable with theme’s standard search-form. AIT ITEM EXTENSION’s custom item are searchable?
    Thx in advance

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Chris,
      searchable are only the Titles and the Content of the items. We are sorry, no fields no their content used with Item Extension is searchable.

  19. Julio

    I have Directory+, I want to know if for my customers it works with full functions of theme; I mean, in images I didn’t see if I could setup Google Maps, for example…

  21. Jasper Fernandez

    I have already bought this plugin but because of internet problem, I accidentally purchased it twice in less than 2-3 minutes. please refund my $25 accident purhcase. I have already filed a dispute in my paypal. please take action because I am using my credit card for purchasing plugins in my paypal.

    1. Zlatko

  22. Jasper Fernandez

    Hi, I have bought a item extension plugin. I have already added it. what should I put in the field in the csv in order for it to display automatically while importing a bunch of entries in my csv?

  23. Fabrice

    Hi, is there a maximum number of extra elements we can add with that plugin or no limit ?

    Also, with Directory+ theme, can we move these extra information above the google map?


    1. Zlatko

      Hello Fabrice,
      thanks for asking. There is no limitation for custom inputs, and you can choose any of 8 available types of field like: Text, Email, Url, Telephone, Number, Range, Date, On-Off switcher. Secondly, the position is not changeable and Item Extension section is above the goole map. Moreover, we have in our To-Do list to add such a functionality in the future.
      Hope this will help.
      Sincerely, Zlatko.

  24. Frank Kocsis

    Hi, I woudl have some question regarding 1) item extensions: Can the extra items be grouped? E.g. PRICE (Pprice 1-2-3..), WEB (URL 1-2-3-4 …) MAIN FEATURE (Sub feature 1-2-3-4) etc.

    2) Can we assign more than one listing to one user? I mean if someone register as a HOTEL CHAIN OWNER, Can he/she create multiple locations?

  25. Javi Blasco


    I’ve been reviewing the plugging “item- extension” and has 8 types of fields.

    The field which I need is a field of type ” Tlist ” for several values ​​are displayed.

    For example , I would like to add the field ” sports shoe brands ” that sells a store. Given that a store will sell for example Nike, Reebok , adidas and nike another one .

    I also want to have the possibility to search for the “Nike ” to give me courage and stores that sell Nike brand footwear . This should include it in the plugging “Advanced Filters”

    This component plan to in future versions ?

    Thank you

  26. Louis Mason


    I’d like to be able to let visitors book or reserve time slots for each business listing. for example book 10am tomorrow appointment at a barbers for a haircut. And for business owners to be able to see that and see a timetable.

    Have you got a plugin for this?

    If not have you got any recommendations? on plugins or where to go to get this developed?


    1. Zlatko

      Hello Louis,
      thanks for your message. I am sorry, we have no such a plugin with booking and market place functionality. Please have a look at a 3rd party as you might find it useful.
      Kind regards, Zlatko

  27. Marty

    I am using your directory+ theme and a couple of the plugins. Everything is going very well. I do have a question…is there a plugin (or future plugin) showing “item” statistics or reports? To be specific, how many visits to item, website click-outs and social click-outs. Thanks for your time

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Marty,
      thank you for your message. We have n our To-Do list to create some new plugins, but everything depends on customer requests and our planing. Currently we have no exact plan when such a plugin should be created and released for the market.

  28. amrit

      Hello Yvonne,

      we are sorry, Item Extension plugin adds functionality to extend only Item custom post type with additional fields.


  31. Matthew Weits


    I would like to add an optional PNG icon over item featured images. For instance we would like to categorize certain items using icons like “top product” or “seller preferred” to distinguish for the user. Is it possible to overlay these icons on the main thumbnail for the image or add a column where those can be visible to the side of the item listing?

    Thank you!

    1. Zlatko

      Best regards!

      1. Matthew Weits

        Thank you for the response,

        My next question would be, where are the category thumbnails generated? Is there a link that is generated for the image or are the images automatically listed next to the items as they are laid out in the directory?

        From there I could accomplish what I am looking for. I just cant seem to find where the thumbnail that is uploaded to a certain category of items goes.


        1. Zlatko

          Hello Matthew,

          thanks for your reply.
          In general, you can add 2 images for each category
          1) the image that representing item on the map (marker)
          2) the image used like icon category.
          It depends on the theme where will be displayed, but in most cases on detail page category with the Title category and in Taxonomy list element.
          For example: Business Finder+ with items displayed by element -> it means the item is posted with assigned category icon … Other directory theme have the place to display icon category a little bit different.
          I hope it will help you, there is no other thumbnail assigned to category…


          1. Matthew Weits

            Thank you! I am using the tour operator theme and will investigate that.

            Do you know where that icon code is generated in the current plug in php files?

            My final question is, we have multiple sites running tour operator theme for different purposes. One highlights items and the other events. Can you think of the best way to sync these up in the instance that a certain event syncs up with with a certain item on the other site. If not, we can continue to make this connection manually. I just didnt know if there was an option in the php or with multisite. Thanks again!
