Managing a large, diverse directory just got way easier
Harness the full power of WordPress custom post types (CPT) to offer and manage multiple listing types.
By default, GeoDirectory offers a single custom post type, called “Places.” This add-on lets you create and add as many CPT’s as you need.
- Create as many CPTs as you need allowing you to divide categories and manage features and parameters per CPT.
- Each CPT has its own form builder, so you can add in any custom fields, prices, custom categories, and tags that you need.
- Set as location-less and create listings without a physical location and build a directory of websites or online services.
- Each CPT you create will have their own dedicated sidebar menu and management system, just like “Places.”
Use with Advanced Search Filters to provide truly granular search
This add-on also integrates perfectly with our Advance Search Filters add-on. Using the two together, you can search per post type and apply search filters per post type. For example, a CPT for “Hotels” could have filters such as “Free WiFi” or “Pets Allowed,” affording your user’s a truly granular search experience.
Custom Post Type Linking
Linking CPTs is an awesome feature that can level up your directory. Link one, or multiple CPTs together.
A simple example could be a “Hospital” CPT and a “Doctors” CPT. Linking them together, you could have a Hospital listing with a tab showing all Doctors that work there. Whereas the doctor CPT can show a link to the hospital where the Doctor works.
A more advanced example might include multiple CPT linking. A website for fishermen might have a fisherman’s profile link to “Fishing boats,” “Companies,” and even to “references,” which could be other fishermen from the same CPT.
