Smooth Directory

A simple and flexible WordPress business directory plugin

Smooth Directory is a simple way to add a business directory to a WordPress site. The public view of the directory is a simple, responsive two-column view, while the WP admin is extremely easy to use.

The plugin is ready to start using right out of the box by navigating to /businesses and is easily extendable by developers by overwriting the two public facing templates and styles.

The directory comes with built-in pagination, category filtering and alphabet filtering.

There are quite a few WordPress directory plugins, but if you're looking for a responsive, easy to get going (and easy for clients to manage) business directory plugin, Smooth Directory will work great for you!

FAQ

How can I modify the templates?

There are two templates that you can overwrite: archive-businesses.php (the main directory template) and taxonomy-business_category.php (the template shown when a category is selected). The best way to do this is to copy those two files from the plugin (located at smooth-directory/public/) to the root directory in your theme and then modifying them from there.

Can I have multiple directories?

No. Currently, only one directory with the slug businesses is supported.
