– Author Panels
wpapps Options for GeoDirectory includes a set of beautifully styled author panels that can be used as widgets or shortcodes. These panels will give your listing owner customers a precise and beautiful overview of their directory activity. These widgets can be placed in any widget area as shortcodes within profile tabs. If you are using BuddyBoss you can place them as widgets on the member profile or use our BuddyPress Options addon to set up custom tabs to hold these panels. For each panel, you can set your own custom title. For panels that work with multiple GeoDirectory custom post types, you can choose which post types appear. Included Panels

  • My Listings – Show all listings authored by the logged-in user, in each CPT separately. Choose which GeoDirectory CPTs to show. You can use more than one panel, so it is possible to show “Blog Posts” in a separate panel.
  • My Favorites – Show all the listings that the logged-in user has favorited using the GeoDirectory favorites system. Choose which GeoDirectory Custom Post Types to display.
  • My Reviews – Show all the reviews created by the logged-in author, for each GeoDirectory custom post type. Choose which custom post types to show.
  • Reviews on My Listings – A Command center panel to help listing owners stay on top of reviews that other users have added to their listings.
  • My Lists – This shows the List Manager lists that the user has created. One of a kind panel for showing this information.

Additional Shortcodes

– Edit My Listing Shortcode
[wpapps_gd_edit_link post_type=”gd_places”] Give your listing owners a direct menu link to edit their listing. No need to visit their profile or find their listing on the site; just click the menu item to go directly to the edit listing page. Perfect for sites where listing owners will only have one listing like “My Listing” or “My Business”. Your site has to enable shortcodes in menu items, done easily with this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/shortcode-in-menus/

– Add Linked Post Shortcode Add a link on the details page template for the listing owner to add a new listing, with the Linked Post field already populated. For example, if a Business Listing owner often adds events, you can create a shortcode that will show a link on their business profile to add another event, and the Link Post: Business field will be populated with their Business Listing.

– Show listing count based on categories Show listing count based on categories is counting listings according to the selected category. For example, we want to display the number of listings from the Attraction category. We can use these shortcodes. We can also choose the number of lists to include child categories or not.


– Add Review link For Other CPT
When you want to give a review on another CPT you can use shortcodes, for example in the image below, we will provide a link review button to CPT Events.   – Include Limit package listing per category
Include Limit package listing per category, is to make each category have a limit listing for each package. For example, on your site, you have 2 packages, namely free and pro. You want Pro listings only have 2 listings that have a category attraction and package free only have 1 listing that has category attraction. It can work by using Include Limit package listing per category to the GD Options.

– Package Custom Sort Order
Package custom sort order will make the listings display based on the package. For example, if we choose premium package listings to be displayed first, then in the Geodirectory loop the listings that will be displayed at the top are all listings that have premium packages after all premium package is displayed, the listings will display other packages. So we can set which package will be displayed first.

  1. Install and activate Wpapps Packages Custom Sort Order addon
  2. Go to CPT setting – Sorting tabs – Add Package Custom Sort Field
  3. Go to wpapps – GeoDirectory – Custom Sort Order – Put the order number according to the package. For example, if you want the paid package listing to be displayed first, then you put number 1.

You can check the result on the archive page.
