Add location in urls

Add location slug in listing urls:
Ticking this option will add the location of the listing to the URL, for example
mydomain.com/places/united-states/texas/dallas/hotels/my-listing
instead of
mydomain.com/places/hotels/chestnut-hill-hotel/

Add full location info with country, region and city slug in listing urls:
Use this option if your directory covers more than one region and/or country.
You can also use this option if your site only covers one region or city, but you want to include the full location in the URL of your listings.
Example: mydomain.com/places/united-states/texas/dallas/hotels/my-listing

Add city slug in listing urls:
You can only use this option  if your site only covers one region or city, do not use if your directory covers more than one region and/or country.
Example: mydomain.com/places/dallas/hotels/my-listing

Add category in listing urls

Tick or untick to include the category name in your URLS, for example
mydomain.com/places/hotels/my-listing
or
mydomain.com/places/my-listing

Listing url prefix

Enter the default name here for your listings, for example places or business or listings etc.

URL examples:
mydomain.com/places/my-listing
mydomain.com/business/my-listing
mydomain.com/listings/my-listing

If you use the Custom Post Type addon, then the listing url prefix will be replaced with the slug you enter there.

GeoDirectory Pages

GD will automatically add 8 pages that will be used as templates to create all your directory pages: GD Home page, Add Listing, Listing Preview, Listing Success, Location, Terms and Conditions page, Info page and Login page.

You can change the title and slug of these pages at the normal WordPress pages settings.

Only the Terms and Conditions page option can be left blank, all other options should have a page selected.
