    Hi,

    I have set your website Settings>Reading to be your latest posts. I have also set GD to be your homepage and activated home top.
    I put the map in GD home top, and added a text widget in your Intro.

    I have used a Genesis featured page widget to bring in the page you were previously using when you had it set to static front page.

    Hi and thanks, but i do not want GD to be the home page, nor do I want a the map on there. Are you saying that the only way to get the intro widget to work is for the home page to be set to GD? if so, no wonder I couldn’t see it :).

    To fix the margins on the sidebar search elements, try making these changes to your style.css
    On line 1036 add margin:0 so it will look like this:

    .sidebar .geodir-search input[type="button"], .geodir-search input[type="submit"] {
        margin: 0;
        width: 100%;
    }

    On line 1025 add margin-left:0 so it will look like this:

    .sidebar .geodir-search select {
        display: block;
        margin-left: 0;
        margin-right: 0;
        width: 100%;
    }

    Hi,
    It is designed for GD to be the homepage – you could remove that condition in your functions.php – look for function geo1280_page_title() and remove the condition that checks for GD being set to home:
    if ( is_front_page() && get_option('geodir_set_as_home') && !$_GET['geodir_signup'] ) {
    replace with:
    if ( is_front_page() && !$_GET['geodir_signup'] ) {

    Leaving GD as your homepage gives you more options though, as you will have the extra widget areas for your content – you aren’t forced to use the map.

    John,

    Thank you so much. I have been away from this project for a few months and it’s taking me a bit to “get with it” again.

    Ahh, I hadn’t gotten as far as to add widgets to home content, I just thought that the GD ones would work anywhere, now I understand, thanks!

    Hi,

    How can I create an ‘About Page’ and add the page to the main navigation menu?

    Thx

    Hi Allistair,

    this are WordPress options, not GeoDirectory options. We don’t provide support to learn how to use WordPress as part of the deal here.

    You can find plenty of tutorial and info via Google or directly in WordPress.org forums.

    Here is a video that I found by googling exactly your question above.

    Thanks

    Hi Paulo,

    Thanks for this and quick replay.

    I only asked because it appeared that GD created a ‘Sample Page’ and I couldn’t find any way to navigate to it?

    Thx again.

    The sample page is created by WordPress too, not by GeoDirectory.

    Thanks

    Hi Paolo,

    Every time I ask a question I have thoroughly researched and read or watched everything I can. Sorry for asking what may appear silly questions 🙁

    What is the limit on tags now?

    Thx

    If you have to learn both WordPress and GeoDirectory the learning curve is longer.

    Don’t worry about it, we are here to point you in the right direction if you can find answers elsewhere.

    Normally the tags limit is 40 characters, but with the Payment manager add-on installed you can change that to whatever you want.

    Thanks

    Hi Paulo,

    I am still in the testing phase

    I have elected to create a CPT called ‘Dealers’ so that I can show branded marker pins – i have ‘bust my head’ thinking of the best way to do this.

    http://www.truckepedia.co.uk/

    However, Mercedes-Benz sell another product called ‘Fuso Canter’ out of the same location. I can easily make another ‘FUSO Canter’ marker pin but I would have to use the same address as the Mercedes-Benz Dealer?

    is this duplicating listings?

    My sole focus in this is making money! Therefore 2 listings with different addresses means more £££££….
