Happy New Year (Nearly) everyone! I have had a great Christmas but come the 27th Dec I was starting to get a little bored of the festivities so I had a look at a few small projects for people. A while ago I was asked to make a directory plugin. Instead of writing one from the ground up which would have been too time consuming at the time, I extended the Business Directory plugin which was sitting in the WordPress Extend Directory.
- Google Maps Geocoding for addresses
- Location based searching with distance calculations
- Additional fields for input and searching (secondary URL)
- A status system
- A templating system with different templates possible per status
- Email approval of new listings
- Priority Listings
- A listing widget
As I said the end result is by no means a beautiful piece of work but in a few hours I have managed to make at least two of my clients happy with a small bill and a functional system.
Feel free to take a look and let me know if there are any obvious flaws which I shall fix. Am happy to extend it as well if need be. I dare say I shall be using it again over the coming months.
