    Dear Sir,

    I am using the free version of the Business Directory plugin. The plugin is great. Nevertheless I’d like to ask if you can help guide me for some improvements.

    (1) I think the “Post Title” and the “Post Contents” fields are too small and and difficult for users to input their data. In addition to that, I did not notice a “maximum” number of characters allowed in any of the fields.

    is there any way for me to increase the dimensions of the fields? Maybe to 5inx4in fo the Content and 5inx2in for the Title. I’d also like to limit the number of characters to maximum 50 characters for the Title and maybe 1500 characters for the Contents.

    Any ideas?

    I appreciate any and all advise that you can provide.

    Hi Joe, We need a directory for coaches who are trained and certified by our Institute. Sounds like you have experience with this plugin…. and that it would probably do the job for us. Would you have an interest in helping me set this up on our site? Thanks, Dale 704-542-3207

    i can’t see any user dashboard feature in the free module, i would like to know what are the ways in which a registered user can edit their listing like the admin did from frontend.

    Hi anantsaxena333,

    The admin is the only person who can edit listings from the back end in BD. You can edit listings from the front end if:
    1) You own the listing
    2) You are logged into the site
    3) You placed the ad with the same username and BD is set to require registration.

    I just read your blog about the best directory plugins. I presently use Business Directory plugin, which is the first plugin you mention. I’ve researched all the plugins you mention but there is one big problem with most of them. They are not SEO friendly. As an example, every url for a listing using the Business Directory has website.com/business-directory/listing in it. There is no way to do away with the /business-directory/. For regions, it’s even worse: website.com/business-directory/wpbdp_listing/region/country. All those extraneous extras in the url that you can’t do away with.

    The Business Directory has the most functionality for my needs and seems to be the best of a bad lot, but those added, meaningless characters, in the url really hurt. I have tried other plugins and even some directory themes, and they’re not much better. Why don’t you mention those limitations?

    I just read about your recommendation of Brilliant Directories and will check that out but there’s got to be a better solution. Do you have one?

    Your thoughts are greatly appreciated. Frustrated with directory plugins…
