Whatever theme you pick, we recommend using the Theme Check plugin available for free on WordPress. The more errors and warnings you see on the theme when you run that check, the worse the theme is. This plugin was developed by WP Core developers to validate their own default themes and is highly respected in the theme community. In general, we like WooThemes as a solid company with great products and support.
Already picked Listify as my favorite, But wanted to ask for your opinion. I also want it to include Event and Classified info as well as customized fields and social profile links. Especially when it comes to mobile use, Lisner ensures an app-like experience with numerous features. You just described literally all WordPress directory themes listed above. This theme has an easy to configure parallax slider on the homepage that enables you to change the transition effects, the pace of sliding and so on.

Can Business Directory Plugin support paid and free listings?
Do you have video tutorials for Business Directory Plugin? Will Business Directory Plugin work with my theme? Not only the plugin is amazing! They will always point you in the right direction, and you will always end up resolving the issue! The Business Directory Plugin was just what my website needed.
It does everything as promised and the support is incredible! I've been using this plugin for over a year and have it installed on three websites. I'm an experienced business directory operator, with over ten years behind me of running profitable directories. On the plus side, the plugin works well out of the box and the paid extensions all work as stated. The plugin is easy to work with and if you use a good quality template it'll look great. Used in conjunction with Yoast the SEO options for this plugin are a lot better than most directory extensions and plugins.
Now for the downside The payment options are limited at best and awful at worst. It's not that the various payment gateway plugins don't work - they do. The problem comes when you wish to bypass the completely inflexible way in which paid listings work.
It is a nightmare, which the plugin developer clearly knows about and chooses to ignore. Get ready for major coding if you want your payment options to fit into the 21st century. Any decent directory plugin will have an easy way to edit labels - not this one. The developer claims that editing the language files is the "easy" way to achieve this. That'd be fine if it actually worked ALL the time.
It doesn't. I still have not idea where some labels come from. The out-of-the-box user experience for advertisers is horrible. It'll also prove to be very challenging for any newbie trying to make user login, registrations, ad edits, etc seem user-friendly. I'd be confident that many newbies walk away from this in sheer frustration over this rather inelegant aspect of the plugin.
Support seems pretty good for the most part. Just don't expect them to get around to solving a heap of real-world problems, for serious operators, any time soon. It's clear that they just aren't up for it or aren't that interested. This is not an anti-BDP rant. Overall, it's a decent plugin and it does what the developers say it will do. It just falls quite a long way short when it comes to being a simple solution, out-of-the-box, for serious directory operators.
I have set-up this plugin for our local Chamber of Commerce including the PayPal module. The set-up was very well explained and relatively easy to do. The features of this plugin are extensive - I'm still finding new ones I hadn't seen at first glance. I had a Tech Support question that was answered promptly and clearly. If you need a business directory, I would recommend this one.
Thanks for putting so much thought into creating this plugin! Kent Tubman. The best directory plugin that can be customized to suit your needs backed by an excellent support team. They go above and beyond. Thank you. Very swift response to an issue. Resolution was even swifter. Great communication too.
