p.s. I get that Geo Directory is more robust, no doubt about this.
But the user dashboard is a really big piece in my mind for those end users who choose to pay to add a listing; hence my surprise at what I found once I started experimenting with Geo Directory.
Here’s another example of a very user friendly, intuitive, easy to navigation User Dashboard:
I suppose my disappointment is that Geo Directory is a premium product ($199 annual for all the features) and yet is so far behind in terms of usability for those paying to add a listing.
Yes, it does take me to the accounts page but this is all that’s on the accounts page (see attachment). All it does is show my user info.
There is an accounts page:
And a UsersWp profile page
Site is password protected
there was an Account Page created when running the setup wizard.
What is supposed to go there?
thank you very much.
I can return to custom icons later but want to get categories created; this helps a lot.
Sure, if you watched the two screencasts posted above, you saw what I’m seeing in GeoDirectory versus user dashboard in Directories Pro
But here’s another one trying showing an example that is more elegant and intuitive
Thanks, I didn’t have this piece in place:
UsersWP > Profile > Choose the tabs to display in profile : select Favorites.
The user dashboard though however is still a big disappointment. It’s not intuitive at all and rather clumsy compared to Directories Pro.
Can the user dashboard be customized or made more elegant and intuitive?
So I found this:
Show only on these price packages and assumed that was option if I wanted to restrict to only one price package.
It appears instead that I need to assign custom fields to every price package I want it to appear ?
So then I’ll just set it show on all for now and then after creating my subscription packages come in and edit the field.
This is valuable though; I see that now as it allows you to create custom fields and only show on relevant packages.
one small follow up on what I was expected when viewing user dashboard:
that’s reasonable. Thanks.
Thank you so much. I understand.
Use Title to add pricing, description.
And can use a pricing table and link directly to each package.
All good news 🙂
Here’s a visual walk through of what I’m experiencing and what I would like:
The direct links you posted above only take me back to the Add a Place page (form).
The descriptions and pricing for each package do not show on the front end so how can a person choose a package without knowing what it includes and what it costs?
We need a page that includes pricing tables that lists what is included in each listing, then chooses and pays, then a person adds a listing as demonstrated in the video.This reply has been marked as private.
Let me try again. I asked this as a presales questions:
We would like people to be able to register for the site for free (not as a practitioner but as someone looking for a practitioner) so they can save / bookmark their favorite practitioners and events. When they login, they have a dashboard that shows their favorite (bookmarked) practitioners and events.
You responded: “GD and UsersWP both don’t need the complexity of roles to give site visitior’s a great experience adding and managing listings or creating an account to track favorites, events, lists, and reviews.”
So I wanted to know for sure how to do this and therefore asked:
So if we charge for adding listings and events, a person who registers for free will only be able to track favorites, events, lists, and reviews.
Nothing to do except to allow for free registration for tracking favorites, events, lists, and reviews.
Is that clearer?
