GeoDirectory V2 and all its add-ons are finally out of BETA.
If you haven’t heard about it yet, GeoDirectory V2 is the first major rebuild of GeoDirectory code base since 2014.
It’s not just an update, it’s a brand new software.
More powerful, more flexible and ready for other 5 years of powering great directories for our customers.
Today it can be found here: GeoDirectory V2
We are working on few final details, like the redesign of this website, before launching it publicly on the WordPress.org plugin repository.
One of the reason why we are postponing this a bit longer, is to try to reach as many users of V1 as possible before the update comes out.
Even though updating from V1 to V2 is fairly simple, it requires few extra step compared to the typical GeoDirectory update. (*** Docs about conversion from V1 to V2 here ***)
Just clicking the update button isn’t enough. Your website won’t show any listings and the design will need to be adjusted a bit.
We want to prevent as many surprised angry users as possible.
We’ll do this with a series of blog posts, videos, newsletter, with social media updates and through our forums.
We hope to reach them all, but we know someone will be left behind and for them we apologize in advanced.
GeoDirectory needed to evolve and we couldn’t wait any longer!
This is the first post of a series about what’s new in GeoDirectory V2 and in particular about:
Design Customization and page builders
GeoDirectory V2 is compatible with any theme and most popular page builders.
It uses few WordPress pages as templates and by default, shortcodes or Gutenberg Blocks to compose them.
There is a Shortcode, Gutenberg Block or Widget for any piece of data within the listings’ database.
This means that you can design any GeoDirectory element through the classic editor.
Or via Gutenberg, but also through your favorite Page Builder:
Elementor, Divi, Beaver Builder, Fusion Builder, WPBakery… You name it!
If you find a bug with a popular page builder, contact us through the forum.
We’ll help you make it work as it should.
We hope you will enjoy V2 and we are looking forward to hear what you think of it…
