Today we released the 1st BETA version of the Supreme Directory theme for GeoDirectory V2.

You can download it from your account area now.

Supreme Directory v2

This version of the theme is build specifically to work with GDv2.
You will need Directory Starter V2 and GeoDirectory V2 for things to work properly.

The process of converting the theme to work with GDv2 mainly involved removing all the GDv1 templating functions we had added as GDv2 work with shortcodes and page templates.

GDv2 Setup Wizard

Running the GDv2 setup wizard with SDv2 will add an option to install dummy widgets in the GD top widget area so things like the full-width map will be inserted.

Featured area

Each post/page now has a setting to select what type of featured area to display.

Archive pages

One of the main features of the Supreme theme is the archive pages with the fixed map at one side and the scrollable listings at the other, in SDv2 we have added the ability to drag the map area to make it bigger or smaller so your users can view things they way they want.

Details pages

The details page is a bit different, the details page is easy for the user to edit the way they want so we have not added a fixed template (but we may if the demand is there for it to look exactly like SDv1).
There is a setting in GDv2 that suppresses the featured image from showing ( as some themes add it in strange places, in SDv2 you should disable this under GD>Settings>Design>Details>Disable theme feature image output (un-tick this).

We are working on setting up a demo site but for now we are testing it here on the LIVE site: https://www.newcastle-county-down.com/

  1. I dont get how that feature of dragging the map smaller or bigger would be of much help tho. My directory traffic is 80% mobile and in general I think its probably that way for most of us. People looking for X business in X neighborhood in their cellphones. Can we get a full details page please? I was hoping there would be some improvements just like in the plugins but I guess we could do with a theme that looks exactly like SD V1.

    • The dragging of the archive map lets your users browse how they want, some like to use the map and some like to use the list more. On mobile you have the button to switch between map and list, we did consider doing a vertical slider for mobile but decided against it for now.

      The SD theme has a geodirectory.php page template which is used by default for most pages, i will work on the page hierarchy for next release so a full width details page is possible.

      Thanks,

  2. For the next next release, maybe consider using a fly-out panel “drawer” approach?
    1. Could be a configurable option for “on” or “off”.
    1.a. If turned on, then position (i.e. slide out from): “top”, “left”, “bottom”, “right” side.
    1.b. If turned off, then “default” functionality. Flex / Scalable on larger screens or stacked on small screens, or disabled entirely.
    2. Could then be configured separately for: phone, tablet, desktop, widescreen via the WP Customizer (or alternatively via standard GeoDirectory settings area).
    Just an idea.
