When promoting special offers there’s two things you’re most concerned about. First is communicating this offer to your targeted customers, second is the offer availability dates that are very important to follow and can boost your sales by reminding your customers of limited validity of the offer. With Special Offers Plugin, managing your special offers will be easier than ever before.

      Hey Wilfrido,
      thanks for asking. Yes, we have in our To-Do list to make all of our directory themes compatible with Special Offer plugin, estimated time of arrival in a 2-3 months.

  1. Wilfrido

    I have seen Special Offers is available for CityGuide…
    How work special offers with CityGuide?
    Where I can see any example?
    Kind Regards…

    1. Zlatko

      Special Offers plugin is now compatible with all of our directory themes /Business Finder+, City Guide, Event Guide, Directory+, Food Guide/.
      For detailed information i would refer you the documentation page:
      Examples are available at: -> Main menu -> Elements -> Special offers
      or Main menu -> Example Pages -> Special Offer … Presentation for the rest of themes will be added soon.
      Best rewgards,

    Have search page, where I can find offers by category and location?
    I want to use the plugin with city guide.

    Best regards,

      1. Thomas

        Suggestion :
        Add Search page (search element) can have Special Offers.

        If customer cannot search special offer is not useful

        Thank for you reply

        1. Zlatko

          Hi again,
          In the theme is used by default standard WordPress search which trying to find keywords from search field in Title, Description and in Content of Item written inside visual editor of Item post. Our own is additional filtering by taxonomies in which is Item assigned, so filter by Categories and Location. We don’t think now to use another filters by Special Offers or by some another information as it’s pretty big hit to the code and require more management from backend side what user of theme don’t see. Maybe in the future we’ll discuss some additional filters, but for now will search work only with keywords used in title or content of post, and filters like category and location.
          Unfortunately it’s not so simple implementation to add search by SO plugin for items and “simply” filter results.
          Thanks for understanding.
          Best regards, Zlatko.

    is it possible to set location for special offer element? On listing items there is this option, but here I cant see it. I want to create page with location based items, events and special offers.

    Thank you very much. Maybe could you send me message with cost of this individual customization?


    1. Zlatko

      Hello Peter,
      thanks for interesting in our products. Special Offer can be linked with a certain Item post type /by using directory theme like Directory+ etc/. but it can not be categorized by location.
      In the similar way you can create Event associated with Item Post type and use Item’s location /Event and related item will have the same address/ – you need Events PRO plugin: But there is option only to show search results by Items or by Events when you choose Event Guide directory theme only. Special offer can not be listed basis on search results, by default.
      (anyhow, it is very interesting idea, we’ll consider to implement such a functionality and make decision)
      Concerning customization: I am very sorry but we do not offer any additional services related to websites of themes users. Unfortunately we are not capable working on user’s custom websites. But we have created and keep working on adding knowledge base, please kindly have a look at:

      Have a great day, Zlatko

    Olá! Ainda está em conflito com o tema CityGuide, no painel administrativo não tem o Special Offers, eu acho que o problema é a ligação com a Linguage, Plugin e o Tema. Aguardo uma resposta de alguem para me informar se é no o meu que está com esse problema. Abraço

    1. Nelson Uetimane

      Alo Junior

      Usas somente o City Guide ou outros temas?

      Estou muito interessado no Directory+, mas parece que o plugin Special and Offers ainda nao é compatvel.

      Podes dar o nome do seu site para dar uma vista de olhos?

      Meu email


  5. Jack Burton

    Do you have a working example of the Special Offers plugin activated and full functional with Directory+ where it shows the Archive Page for a List of All Special Offers?


    1. Zlatko

      Hello Jack,
      thanks for asking and interesting in our product/s. We’ll create some and drop you a link/screenshots in your post box.
      Thanks for your patience.

    Good Morning
    Before i purchase premium package, i went through pre-sale questions.
    There was a reply saying that SPECIAL OFFER only works with Business Finder.

    And i also found it:

    Hey Wilfrido,
    thanks for asking. Yes, we have in our To-Do list to make all of our directory themes compatible with Special Offer plugin, estimated time of arrival in a 2-3 months.

    Are you still managing to make it working with Directory+ or it’s already compatible/

    When we start downloading plugins, we go to directory+ and special offer is there.

    On most listings i will need to have a post for special and offers.
    how we sort this out?

    Apparently Directory+ and Business Finder can do the same thing.
    According with comparison table, Business Finder has all theme features while Directory+ is missing Special and Offers.

    As i need Special and Offers, what you suggest?

    Go for Business Finder or Directory+

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Nelson,
      we have released Special Offer plugin on 6th of June, that time we had a plan to extend plugin functionality like it was mentioned above… BUT due to many requests from our clients, we have changed the priority and on 16th of June we have released plugin update with version v1.1 with status:
      – New: Plugin is now compatible with CityGuide, Directory+, EventGuide and FoodGuide
      Please check the changelog file at: – you can find it under the image presentation on the left side, the second mention about compatibility is in the header – under the main description of the plugin on the right side…
      Thanks for understanding.
      Best, Zlatko

      P.S.: sorting of listing you can manage also by adding parameter “featured”, please have a look at:

  7. Adam

    How do you set a percentage for the special offer?

    I can only see options to offer a dollar amount.

    Also, how we can we set default currency?

  8. russell

    Iva lready purchased the theme from themeforest but now realize i need many of the plugins. I would like to get a premium membership but would like a discount based on what was already paid for the theme. I dont think its fair I pay full price for the theme when it would be included with the Premium membership. I didn simply didnt know.

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Russell,
      thanks for asking. We have created a special offer to get all of our products /themes, plugins, icons, PSD’s/ for $299,- at
      or you can consider “Directory Bundle” for a $245,- /check the scroll down offer under the button “Purchase”/ depending on the theme you have purchased. The packages includes our products that comes with unlimited license usage /it could be convenient for you especially in case when you are intended to use any of products for more than 1 times – you do not need another one license/.
      Hope this will help.
      Best regards,

    We already own your directory theme, and we are considering your “membership plan”. However, one main feature we want is social login for our sites, but it looks like your themes do not support social login and you do not have a plugin that offers this functionality, is this true? I would like to know why you don’t offer social login of if you plan to in the near future. If you do not plan to support this, why? Do you have recommendations on how to best implement social login within your themes (directory)? Thanks.

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Michael,

      thanks for interesting in our products. Social login plugin is not in our To-Do list due to many many other projects requested by our clients with higher priority. Possible we could add this plugin within one of coming updates. Secondly, we do not have tested any of 3rd party plugins, but have some feedbacks from our clients that there were no issue during website building.
      Thanks for understanding.

    I have a problem with this SPECIAL OFFERS WORDPRESS PLUGIN. All prices for special offers display in one format: currency + cost, exsample, “$1000”. If I use the RUB currency, in front-end it looks like this: “руб999”. This is absolutely not correct for Russia and other ex-USSR countries.

    And I received an official response from technical support (support topic #61702):
    “Hi, Your request for design alteration or functionality modification requiring change in the source code cannot be processed by AIT support team. We do not offer this kind of service as per our terms of use due to capacity reasons. However, you can contact freelancer service at the link below for further assistance.”

    Why would you do something that does not work well and is wrong? Why did you include the russian currency in the general list of currency, if the currency is displayed crooked?
    I cant believe … AIT created a plugin, sell it for $ 45, and at the same time developers cant help in a simple, but very important issue, an adaptation for all countries?
    Can I then someone recommend AIT themes and plugins? Definitely not!

          we apologize for any inconveniences due to this, and thank you for your help and feedback – we’ll definitely consider it as well as using the new official symbol of Russian ruble: “₽” . I think it could be even more interesting for you.
          Have a great day!

          P.S.: we stay in Slovakia 😉

    Does this plugin not work with child themes?
    I have installed it on a web that uses a Directory + child theme and the offers do not appear below each item. If I active the parent theme they appear. It is necesary to use the parent to see the offers? Is there any way to show the offers on child themes?

    Hi, I’m interested in the membership and have a question about the special offer plugin. I understand from the screen shots that I (The Admin) can create the offers. But I don’t see that business owners can create them from their Easy Admin submission. is that how it works, only Admin can create the offers? Thank you

    It’s imposible for me to add a Romanian Leu Courency Symbol.
    I added in them neon, special offer config, events pro but it doesn’t show me RON symbol

  14. Himanshu Tanna

    Hi There, I have been using Event Guide Theme and Most of the plugins, it’s amazing. Thanks!

    I have a query with ‘Special Offer’ Plugin – I am unable to see all the items in the drop down list in backend. I guess all the items with events linked to them are missing from the list!

    Is it that I can use only one of the plugin at a time? Please suggest the best way forward.
