You have included new custom designed location and category dropdowns with no means of backward compatibility with previous versions.The search box in these dropdowns is not required if you only have say 4 entries. Whats more they don’t even automatically close once the user has selected an entry. What made you think that every site wanted to transition to these dropdowns? How can you get rid of the search box and get the dropdown to automatically close once you have made a selection? Why are radio buttons forced on everyone, what if I don’t want radio buttons to keep the controls consistent with my existing custom fields dropdowns? seems poorly thought through.

Impossible to customize the appearance, not even the color and size of the texts. Really a shame for a Wordpress plugin, in 2024! And the pro version (which I bought) does not offer more possibilities.

I am extremely pleased with this software and the support received. Although there is a time difference of when we are working, I submit a ticket during the day and see an answer the next morning. Sanjiv has been incredible during our implementation process. I highly recommend this company and their software.

I recently integrated Advanced Classified & Directory Pro into my WordPress website, and I am beyond impressed with its performance and features. This plugin is a game-changer for anyone looking to create a powerful and user-friendly classifieds or directory website. The setup was a breeze, thanks to the intuitive interface and well-documented instructions. The customization options are extensive, allowing me to tailor the plugin to fit my specific needs effortlessly. One of the standout features is the robust search functionality. It provides users with a seamless experience, making it easy to find the information they’re looking for. The sleek and responsive design ensures that my website looks great on any device. I appreciate the attention to detail in the user management system. It’s straightforward to manage listings, and the ability to monetize through various payment gateways is a fantastic bonus for those looking to turn their website into a revenue stream. The customer support is exceptional. I had a question about a specific feature, and the response was prompt ( With time delay due to location), helpful, and friendly. It’s evident that the developers are dedicated to providing an excellent user experience.
