    Hello,

    Just a couple of quick setup questions if possible.

    1. We are not sure which pages to edit for the main search listing page and individual listings pages? there seems to be a few default pages setup and archive templates but we are not sure which ones to edit.

    2. Just to clarify why is there a location page https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/location/ and search page https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/search/. What are their functions and what’s the difference?

    3. Also how can you correctly format/layout the shortcodes to achieve different page layout styles (for the details page). Is there an article with examples to help with this?

    4. Can we change the page title on the main listing page without interfering with the default endpoints (assigned for adding a listing, viewing search results etc within the menu settings).

    Ideally we went to have https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/film-tv-directory/ for the main listing search page and then https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/film-tv-directory/company/example for individual listing pages.

    5. For some reason listings are not showing up on the map but showing below in the results on the location page (https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/location/). Also when you click on individual listings it takes you to a blank page?

    6.When you submit a listing it shows Country, Region and City Fields (screenshot attached). Can we remove these so someone just adds their street address and postcode or does it interfere with the locations function.

    7. Finally how does the whole locations function and section work within settings? why does it add a location when someone submits a listing.

    Sorry to post so many questions!

    Thanks for your time

    Hi ewan34,

    Thanks for your post. Please allow me to answer your questions accordingly.

    1. We are not sure which pages to edit for the main search listing page and individual listings pages? there seems to be a few default pages setup and archive templates but we are not sure which ones to edit.
    Search template can be edited here https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/templates/search/ .

    2. Just to clarify why is there a location page https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/location/ and search page https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/search/. What are their functions and what’s the difference?
    You can check out the difference here https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/templates/search/ and https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/templates/location/

    3. Also how can you correctly format/layout the shortcodes to achieve different page layout styles (for the details page). Is there an article with examples to help with this?
    You can refer to the article here https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/templates/details/

    4. Can we change the page title on the main listing page without interfering with the default endpoints (assigned for adding a listing, viewing search results etc within the menu settings).
    If you’re referring to the homepage title, check out this section of the documentation

    Ideally we went to have https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/film-tv-directory/ for the main listing search page and then https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/film-tv-directory/company/example for individual listing pages.
    You can refer to the article here so setup your directory front page https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/geodirectory/getting-started/front/ . Then, you can change the slug here https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/places/general/ to company if you wish to display the company on the permalink

    5. For some reason listings are not showing up on the map but showing below in the results on the location page (https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/location/). Also when you click on individual listings it takes you to a blank page?
    We would need WP admin access here in private reply to investigate this further. Could you provide that?

    6.When you submit a listing it shows Country, Region and City Fields (screenshot attached). Can we remove these so someone just adds their street address and postcode or does it interfere with the locations function.
    No, Country, Region and City is mandatory for a listing.

    7. Finally how does the whole locations function and section work within settings? why does it add a location when someone submits a listing.
    You can refer to the FAQ section here that explains more about this. https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/addons/location-manager/#faq

    Hi Kor,

    Thanks for your reply.

    1. Ok thanks. We have used the GD widgets which seem to be working great.
    2. Right ok. So search page is the default search page for all listings (the one I need to edit) but the location page will show listing from a speicific town, city etc.
    3. Will edit this page using GD widgets.
    4. We have edited the Search page and changed the URL to
    https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/film-tv-directory/ (but made sure we change page settings under General>Pages to this page). Hope thats ok.
    5. Will provide a login. Let me know your email and I’ll create one.
    6. Ok no problem. On a side note it seems that sometimes the Street Address field doesnt always Autofill with an address.
    7. Thanks will have a look at that article.

    Finally it still seems that individual company (or places) pages don’t work and show “Page Not Found” when you click on them e.g
    https://www.freelancevideocollective.com/company/figure/

    Thanks for your help so far!

    You have a few conflicts with other plugins.
    You have added the Google Map API in a few different plugins, so if you can identify which ones, try turning that one off or remove the API keys from the other plugin.
    Try disabling plugins until you find the problem, and let us know how you went.
    Please add FTP details if we can investigate a bit more.
