There is a lot of old documentation mixed in with new versions. Information refers to features and paths that no longer exist. Even videos are outdated. Makes one wonder about the actual plugin. It is also not clear how to set up the directory layout, design, flow.

This is by far THE BEST WordPress plugin I have ever used! It's like an artisan's favorite tool...

Before buying a plugin, we searched and analyzed possible alternatives for a very long time. But it turned out to be the only plugin that was suitable for our purposes. The plugin is not simple and is also not easy to configure. There were a lot of questions, problems, difficulties in setting up, but the support is just great. It took no more than 1-2 days to solve any difficult issue. At the moment we are going to open a site for indexing. We really hope that the project will work as we planned and the plugin will not disappoint us in the future. So far we are very pleased with the plugin and with very patient and responsive support.

I am using Geodirectory for 2 years and I am very pleased with their services and support. Although versions 1 and 2 are somewhat different, the transition with their documentation and support was simple!

Even though I'm a web developer, I've run into things I couldn't get to work as intended. The GeoDirectory Team has been prompt, courteous, and extremely helpful to solve each issue. The software is great, very intuitive, and fun to use. I highly recommend GeoDirectory as your platform of choice. Version 2 has been a pleasure to use. They did a great job of refactoring the platform to make it 100% better!
