  1. I asked a Pre-sale Question a little while ago and have not gotten a response. I’ll ask again here and hope for a reply this time.

    1. Can the membership feature allow different subscribers to access different content, based on their membership level? Is this a WP feature or the template?

    2. Can store on front page support different vendor’ stores? OR Is only one store supported?

    3. Is there a coupon feature, to market to listed merchants or is this something you can add or do for me?

    I am interested in the entire library. I also understand that I can use these items to bonus out my web clients, is this not so?

    Thanks in advance.


    1. Zlatko

      Hey Christopher,
      the answers are available at:
      1) User’s role is a theme functionality and access to the content depends on user’s package settings according the following documentation:
      2) Obviously theme supports only WooCommerce plugin for online store, theme was designed for creating listing portal, not market place. Anyhow, we have in our To-Do list to create some vendor’s plugin in the future.
      3) Plugin for discounts is not available by default, but theme is fully compatible with WooCommerce plugin for online sell, which comes with +1000 ad-ones and extension plugins …
      I am not sure whether i have understood how to bonus out clients basis on items. For the moment no such a plugin available.
      Best regards,

    I’am currently using your directory + theme, in terms of their look this theme doesn’t seem overly different. Are there any major differences in terms of updated code or anything like that. And will the ajax search be available for the directory plus theme?
    Thank you

  5. Marzio Micheloni

    Some time ago I bought your Directory+ theme on Themeforest, but I’ve have never used it till few days ago, when I started working on a new project. Working on it I saw an interesting offer from you: the Business Finder+ starter kit, that I think it will be more suitable for our needs:
    Further we need to buy more plugins for that (advanced filters and item extention maybe).
    My question is: could you please refund the Directory+ theme that I’ve already bought if I buy this new bundle and the other plugins? I also have Javo Directory, but I think that your products are the best and I would rather work with those.
    I’m awaiting for your response asap!
    Best regards and thank you.

  7. Catherine Watt

    Hello, I’m thinking of buying Business Finder or Directory +, with the language plugin. Do I also need to buy Events Pro if I want to have events? I don’t necessarily want users to be able to add events, but I would like to be able to add them myself, preferably including recurring events.

  8. Geng


    I´ve testet a lot of store locator plugins. But mostly doesn´t work very well. Than I saw your business finder – but this is a full theme. Do you have a plugin, that does the same and integrate in theme and design, that we have for our customer?

  11. Sandra

    Hi –
    Two questions….
    1. Do you have a real site that has used the Business Finder template that I can look at?
    2. Can the size of the gallery on the business profile be changed? If not, what is the ideal size that you would ask a business to use?

    Thanks. It looks like a great theme.

    1. Zlatko

      Hello Sandra,
      thanks for your interesting in Business Finder theme:
      1. Please visit portfolio that showcases some projects of our clients at:
      You can filter by theme name: Business Finder 2
      2. The size can not be changed via theme admin – it requires further CSS customization, the ideal size of images? I would say 900×600
      Should you have further questions, please contact us back.
      Sincerely, Zlatko
