Best WordPress Directory Theme
Review : DirectoryPress Theme from PremiumPress is a responsive directory WordPress theme made for WordPress CMS users. DirectoryPress theme was introduced by a famous author “Mark Fail” who is the owner of PremiumPress. The main goal behind developing this theme was to enable an ordinary or advanced WordPress user to make their own directory website without falling into coding work. The template has ready page template and directory style homepage so that you will not have to hire and web designer to create a directory portal. Custom post formats, custom widgets, short-codes and client’s support is the main advantage and assurance that you will never fail to create or handle your directory portal.
If we talk little bit about homepage layout and features then first comes into my attention is search feature which can be counted as a min source of page-views. The search bar is placed right after header, and it has two options to make search task easier and quick for the visitors. The keyword text box is given to add custom word as per your desire. The second options is the list of auction category, by choosing particular category from available list you may specify the areas of your interest for search operation. The category displayed on the auction list is a sample from demo page, you will have your own custom category list when you start directory website.
