How to add business directory using WordPress

Business directory can be created in word press through two different ways:

  1. Plugin

This plugin is called business directory and can add any kind of directory.

It is easy to manage new requests. It however creates just one page of the site as a directory as opposed to the whole website hence cannot be used for a robust directory site.

It can be accessed via the link below:

2. Custom made

This is done as follows:

a)      Using posts – Posts are created and treated like listings of a directory. These posts can be customized to an individual’s liking

b)      Using blog categories – Blogs are categorized as listing pages

c)      Using a form in a submit page – this uses contract form 7 that can be customized in categories. Submissions are mailed to website owner to create a post page manually

Custom making gives one more control on their directory and the entire website works as a directory. It is however more tedious
