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.

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!

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.

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.
