GeoDirectory V2 – Design Customization

100% compatible with page builders like Elementor, Divi, Beaver Builder and more.

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 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…

  1. I think I must been searching, looking, buying, testing and failing with WordPress directories software for years (even GeoDirectory ver. 1). But finally…version 2 of the GeoDirectory seems to be what I have been waiting for. Maybe I will get serious about building my niche directories after all. Thank you. It looks great!!

    1. We’d be delighted if you will! Thanks 🙂

  2. Now that I am getting into GD V2, I am realizing that either GD V2 is not for everybody or the documentation requires many complete examples to be fully understood instead creating false assumptions and confusions.

    For example, in the case of the Builders, please include examples that can be achieved with the plain Builder without CSS customization, as well as examples that require CSS customization. Then people like me who do not know about CSS, will realize what can he do or not.

    1. Hello,

      CSS is for styling, if you don’t like the default style or the builder you are using does not have enough styling options for you then you might want to add some extra CSS, in most cases this won’t be needed.
      You can achieve almost anything with GD and a builder, we will be making some specific tutorials once v2 is on the but until then if you have any specific requests we will be happy to let you know how to achieve something on our support forum.


  3. How long before I can load it straight from WP and not have download & upload it please?

    1. Few more days…


  4. Yeah, really, really good.
    I have previously reviewed a very wp plugin. But this is the best.

    I’d be happier on Whoop theme.
    Health in your hand 🙂

    1. Hi Raşit,

      thanks for your comment, Whoop for V2 will come soon too!

      1. Hi!

        Is there Whoop now for V2?


        1. Please see:

          The final version will be available on soon.
