Today we updated GD core to version 1.6.3, you can see the change log here. As usual we also updated a few addons and some themes.
We consider this a very big step towards becoming the undisputed best directory plugin for WordPress.
The highlights of these releases are:
GD endpoints for WP REST API – Alpha
Today we finally release the Alpha version of our add-on to extend the WP REST API with GeoDirectory endpoints. The plugin can be downloaded here. Please report any bug or comment in the new API section of the support forum.
Documentation will follow very soon.
Lazyload for listings images
You will notice that Listings page loading time is reduced considerably. This because any image that isn’t visible on the screen is no longer loaded until is necessary
Show page content for all GD pages
Many asked to be able to add extra content in the add listing page, location page, login page and so on. Now it is extremely easy to do so. You just need to add content to the respective page via the WordPress page editor.
GD Booster, MaxCDN integration
In addition, if you set GDB to hide the debug information, it will now minify html also (which google pagespeed likes a lot).
Link CPT to CPT
Several members asked for an option to allow Custom Post Types to be linked together like Events can be linked to Places or any other custom post type. Well this is now possible. When creating a new custom post type, for example “Doctors” you can select 1 custom post type to link to, for example: “Clinics”. Or allow the listings of the CPT “Shop”, to be linked to the listings of the CPT “Mall”.
Supreme final version is released free of charge!
The final version of Supreme Directory our latest and best looking theme has been released can be downloaded free of charge. For both Supreme and Directory Starter, pages and blog posts can now have sidebars too.
