Google Maps

You’ll need a Google API key in order to display Google maps on your website. Once added, you can display items of your choice on the map.

Google Maps
Directory Search Form

Directory Search Form

The function of the Directory Search Form block is to search directory items. It is possible to search by keyword, category and location. You can use geolocation to set the radius from your actual position. Precise search is available using the advanced filter icon directly in the search form. This block can be used on any page as a standalone block or as a part of the map.

Similar to Directory Search Results, Post Search Results is used on Special Page to display posts found by “Posts Search Form” using category, location or keyword.

Item Reviews

One of the key parts of a good listing site is certainly honest reviews posted by your customers. This feature lets you add star rating and a comment to any item you allow reviews on. You can enable reviews in Citadela Directory plugin under the tab “Item Reviews.” You can even set the color of the stars in star ratings. Average rating is calculated automatically and is displayed under the title of the listed item.

Item Reviews
Get Directions

Get Directions

Use this block on Item Detail Page (one of the Special Pages) and let your web visitors get directions (navigate) from their location to the item location.

Claim Listing

In the beginning, you’ll be creating a basic list of businesses on your website to get the ball rolling. Once your site gets more popular, business owners will want to claim the listing as their own and manage it in their administration. That’s what Claim Listing is for. You can enable it in Citadela Directory plugin under the “Claim Listing” tab.

Claim Listing
Item Extension

Item Extension

Extend your items with more information. You can predefine custom fields of several available types. You can divide your data between several Item extension Blocks and place them on different places of Item detail page with different layouts.

Advanced Filters
Featured Category

Featured Category

If directory item belongs to multiple categories, you can choose one featured category. The icon and name of the featured category will be used on the map, search results and items list.

Gutenberg editor on Directory item

You can use any Gutenberg block you like INSIDE the directory item. Here’s just a small example of what you can do inside a directory item:

  • create a gallery
  • add a price table
  • insert multiple maps
  • use any 3rd party block

You can still use a directory item special page, but now you have an option to overwrite these settings. This way, you can create different looking item detail pages for each item.

We love this feature as now you can work with items like WordPress pages or posts.

You can add new blocks, reorder existing ones – just like on other pages.
