READ WHAT USERS SAY ABOUT GEODIRECTORY

👉 Fantastic Plugin w/ An Awesome Team Behind It
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
GeoDirectory was exactly the tool that I needed to get my directory needs met. The tool is incredibly powerful with a wide arrange of tools and fantastic integration with BeaverBuilder. The support team was incredibly helpful in navigating any new territory we ran into.

👉 Flexible and powerful plugin with amazing support
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I switched from another directory listing plugin to GeoDirectory a couple of weeks ago and I think I’m sticking with GD. I’m still moving up the learning curve, but I can see that GD could be a powerful plugin for what I’m trying to do. The support has been fantastic so far. The support team is very responsive and they really try to resolve any issues. They were already helpful answering support tickets that I raised even before I bought my GD membership.

👉 Great plugin, wonderful add-ons and fantastic support!!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Like many others I tried other plugins and even a listing theme, none gave me the options, flexibility and seamless integration with Elementor that GeoDirectory did. I worked with the free core GeoDirectory plugin for awhile (which did everything I needed it to) before I finally pulled the trigger and bought the membership giving me full access to all their add-ons and I’m so very happy I did! The add-ons will take your site to a whole new level. Support is simply the best. Fast, friendly and totally clear. You will never have to open another support ticket to explain the answer to the first 🙂 GeoDirectory is absolutely brilliant!!

👉 Amazing Directory Plugin
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
This is a truly amazing directory plugin. Very solid and extremely configurable. And the most important of all, it works with all themes with minimal css changes (or no changes at all). The free support offered here is fast and acccurate. From the 4 plugins i tried, this is the only one that fulfilled my needs.

Reviews

If you're looking to create a directory then let me save you some time (GD is the best by long a shot). Super customizable and has plenty of 1-click templates to get you started in no time. On top of that, their support is fantastic and easy to work with.
27 September 2022
We've built a few directories over the years and GeoDirectory has to be the easiest, most powerful, yet flexible plugin we've used. The support team are friendly, super fast and very accomodating.
21 September 2022
This plugin can be a little tricky to figure out at first, but I have to say the support team has been amazing. Every time I send them an email with questions they get back to me within 24 hours. Slowly but surely I've been able to put together a well-functioning listing directory website. A great plugin that integrates with Elementor.
12 September 2022
I set up GeoDirectory to create a Members directory for a client's website, and love the functionality. I added GeoDirectory Advanced Search Filters for some additional options. I recently experienced a formatting glitch related to pagination, and spent a couple of hours trying to figure out how to resolve it on my own. I asked for help, and within an hour, an *AMAZING* email support person added some custom CSS to resolve the issue. Five stars!
26 August 2022
I've been able to customize some pretty amazing client websites with this plugin and its extensions. It does take some learning and lots of trial and error; however, the foundation is very solid. Customer support is also top notch, usually taking less than 24 hours to get response. Very important in this day and age.
