  1. I am looking for any Hotel Directory site. Can anyone suggest some theme which can be the best for my Hotel Directory site?

    1. David,

      All of above listed themes can be used as hotel directory websites as they are not made specific for some niche. My favorite is Listify but others will works just as well.

  2. Very good list of directory WordPress themes. I tried some of these, directorypress, geocraft etc. Everyone have different features. good work.

  3. Mr. Aigars:
    If I take Tech News or Video news, can I link it to autoblogging or content management software to post my content on the specified time and date? My contents are 70 % video and 30% written articles, which theme do you recommend me?

    1. Rahim,

      There is no problem with that. Of course autoblogging is a thing from the past and it no longer works it worked 10 years ago because Google have improved a lot over the time. However, themes are still working fine with this technique.

      1. Algars,
        By autoblogging and content management software, I mean software that is linked to my website, so I schedule my articles or videos for 24 hours, it will posts my data on the website suppose each hour, instead of me posting it directly each hour. Again regarding the themes; as I said my contents are 70 % video and 30% written articles, which theme do you recommend me?

        1. Btw, WordPress does have post scheduling option by default which we also use a lot of Colorlib. Of course there are many advanced versions available via plugins and services but for us the default ones is enough.

          All themes handles videos without any problems, so it all comes down to one that you like from design perspective. For me it is Listable or Listify but you can choose your own. And they are going to work with any plugins and third party services just like any other theme.

  4. Aigars,
    Appreciate for your useful post.

    I plan to build a directory for business in different language, and i am leaning to listable as the demo shows the directory, but i see the listify seems selling more in themeforest. I have several questions: (1) Can you give me some pros and cons between Listify and Listable in term of (a) easy to customize (b) handling of big data after website grows bigger? Also (2) where/how is the good way to get the directory data to import for the first time? (3) How can i handle the change (open/close/moving) of a business in the future because not all business will do the listing with my website but i still need to give some basic info?

    1. Sam,

      1. Themes use the exact same plugins for their functionality which means that they works both the same way but design is what makes them different.
      2. Data import also works the same way for both but keep in mind that data will need to be in a WordPress specific format.
      3. You will need to decide that part on your own how you want it to be handled. There aren’t any specific feature for that for neither themes.
      The amount of data your website can handle depends entirely on your hosting provider and not WordPress or theme. If you are looking to get cheap shared hosting you are just waiting for disaster to strike. For larger sites it is always recommended to use managed WordPress hosting such as one offered by WP Engine. You can start with a smaller plan there and upgrade was you grow. Your website will also perform much faster than it would using Bluehost, Hostgator, Godaddy or other low quality hosting providers.

      1. Aigars,

        Thanks for your quick rely, i want to make q2 and q3 a bit more clear.
        q2: I means where/how can i get the real data to import to my brandnew site?
        q3: I mean to how to keep my directory more up to date with the change of the business, I import the info. of a company A at location 1 ( it is good now) but a month from now this company, A may be closed or move to location 2. Is there a way to keep track of this change.

        Again ,thank you very much

        1. Sam,

          a2: It is up to you find database/information to use for your new site. There is a demo content that comes with the site but it is a placeholder that doesn’t hold any value. You need to have content strategy in place as you can’t easily just copy/paste from other websites as well as you will run into copyright problems. There are many ways how you can approach this but it has nothing to do with theme.
          a3: Theme is not going to pull information from third party resources automatically. Either you can allow your users to edit their content or check everything manually which is going to become very difficult once your site grows. But of course you can always hire someone to do it for you.
          I think what you don’t realize is that theme is just a design and not a fully functional Yelp, Expedia, Booking that comes with all thousands of employees that performs daily tasks to run these directories.

  5. Thank you Aigars for your listing. Would you give me your opinions.
    1) Is building a directory website still a good business opportunity? Yet we know that Google already has “Google Business” where its features have been very good.
    2) Google is definitely very popular. Is there any chance if we run a directory website?

    Thanks.

    1. Dominic,

      1. It is still a good opportunity if you provide an unique concept. It can be anything as users find it useful.
      2. You can succeed with anything if you have good idea and strategy in place. Without a gameplan you have failed before you have started.

  6. That is one of the best directory theme and I would like to congratulate for this great contribution. I am really grateful to you for your great job.

  7. Hi there, love the reviews of the themes stated above, however I am struggling to find a theme that would suite professionals, Ie, doctors, counsellors etc. What do you advise on this please?

    Thanks

    1. Lionel,

      There aren’t any specific directory themes for doctors but literally any theme can be used for that purpose. You can customize all themes to get the results you are looking for. This includes changing color schemes, arranging sections, filters and so on. Theme developers have just used general niches to showcase what their themes are capable of because that’s what most users are after.

  8. Hi Aigars,

    I’ve been thinking of creating a directory listing about restaurants and other businesses in my city, but I just wondering, why make one while people can easily search the locations they need in Foursquare? Foursquare has an app that people can check-in, but most, and almost all directory theme existed are solely based on WordPress and relying on a webpage to view. Is it still a valid point to create a directory listing?

    Thanks for creating this wonderfully informative website.

    1. Cranko,

      WordPress websites and especially these themes can be mobile friendly which means that you can browse them on mobile.
      Creating another yelp is pointless and this point as it has taken over the world but adding an unique twist for your website could make a big difference.

  9. Hi guys,

    This is really great source of information. I’d like to share our story in short 🙂 Many of you may know that Ait Themes has been first author on TF who introduce such brilliant theme as directory is. Why I’m thinking directory theme is brilliant? Cause this kind of theme gives you a chance to make portal for very low investments and gain some $$$. We came with this idea based on own experiences. It’s 10 years now what we created very successful portal. It was custom-made and the expenses were much much higher comparing to buying theme, plugins, etc, So we wanted to give a chance to others create own directory portal for less money. Using theme has definitely some barrier and won’t be in-house solution, but still you have great chances to create wonderful project almost for no money. Only sky’s the limit. We continue to developing and improving features. Like now adding advanced search, dealing with speed, adding new features to item reviews etc. The competition is really really strong and hard to decide which author is the best 🙂 Anyway to make that easier for you we run very special deal, also available for Themeforest’s customers. You may want to give it try.
    Happy directoring 😉

  10. Hi, i am hoping you can help me find a template with the features i need.

    I am looking for a business directory theme where users will log in and create personal profiles to review and add listings, mark their favorites/bookmarks, write reviews and rank the places. The user profiles should be visible to other users (as persons/people on the site) and users should be able to follow each other. But most importantly, each users list of favourites should be visible to other users (as a list of recommended places/businesses).

    I have been looking at so many directory themes now but I do not seem to find any theme that has such feature. Hence, I would be very very thankful for your suggestions on themes that i could use! Or maybe advice on how to build the features with plug-ins.

    Thanks

    1. Alexandra,

      Unfortunately, there aren’t any that specific theme available. The easiest solution would be to take some theme as foundation and then hire a developer who could implement additional functionality.

  11. Hello Aigars!

    I have a question about a WP Directory themes!
    I want to create a fitness site, where i can gather all sort of fitness related places (like gyms and sportsclub) and personal trainers in my area/country and visitors, who come to this page can find every fitness related sportsclub and trainer through the search field, by name and region. The visitors must be then able to comment (i.e. leave a review) the places/peoples they like.
    I think it should be a directory related theme (like Listable for example), because then the visitors could see all the places/peoples marked directly on the map nearby them and there should be the search window on the first page, which allows to do so. Or do you think that some fitness related theme could offer the same possibilities (like JustFit for example, which also offers eCommerce possibility among other things, but i`m not sure that i can adjust the search button on it`s front page, like Listable has)?

    What do you think would be the best theme, supporting my goals and needs?

    Thank you so much for the reply!

    1. Mark,

      In your case I would recommend to use Listable or some other directory theme. Fitness themes are great to create gym and other related websites with service section, single time table, contact form and so on. As directory you will need to do a lot of modifications. Adding fitness related images and content on your website will make any theme look like it was made specially for fitness sites.

  12. Wow, great list, but tough for a newbie like me to choose. I am looking to build a plumbing directory. I don’t really need many categories as everyone will own a plumbing business. My focus will be a global directory that can break down to country, state/province, then city. If you were going to build something like this which directory would you use?
    Thanks!
    Kelly

  13. Hello Aigars,

    As always I found your blog really helpful, I want to ask you something: I am planning a directory for my city, I am struggling between LISTABLE and JAVO 3.0. Both themes look really nice, I like the way LISTABLE look and after reading TF reviews and comments I see almost every customer is really happy with them, in the other hand JAVO 3.0 looks very robust and got very nice looking demos plus plugins like VC, Ultimate Addons, Slider Revolution, only thing I am not clear why they request to use the Lava-code plugins in addition to premium plugins like woo commerce product vendors.

    Which theme you would chose between these two themes? Would be possible to read a cons/pros about them?

    Thanks and regards
    Miguel

  14. Hello Aigars,

    Thank you for this helpful blog. I would like to create a directory site with the following:
    * members can create their own membership page with credit card capability and autopayments
    * graduated membership fees allow podcasts, video, article posting
    * membership listing ranges from basic (white page listing) to full page with links, photos, etc. that members themselves can purchase, upload, and update through a personal login
    * chat rooms by topic allow members and visitors to chat with each other
    * Private chat rooms allow for private conversations for some members
    * members create a login to update their own page
    * the site has ultimate design versatility and ease in changing the design
    * members would be searchable by key word or a certain distance from zip code

    Where do I start?

    Thank you!

    Debra

    1. Debra,

      Unfortunately, there aren’t any that advanced WordPress themes and likely never will be. The thing is that themes are created to mass market where demand is. In your case you are trying to build a very specific website that doesn’t even exist yet, so there are no themes to serve this purpose. However, it is not all that bad since can choose to go with any of above-listed themes and look for plugins and 3rd party services for functionality. Still you will need to hire a developer to put it all together but it is still better than nothing.

  15. Hi Aigars

    Firstly, I wanted to say that the amount of effort you have put into helping people is remarkable and I would expect that this all comes back to you in some shape or form. Thank you for taking the time to educate and guide us!

    I am currently planning a services directory for a set of businesses within the same niche. The aim is to start off with the following 2 options (unless more can be accommodated):
    1) Free listings
    2) Paid Listing for Featured ads
    A potential 3rd avenue would ideally be the option to offer them a more prominent listing page (when the user clicks on that vendor’s block in the search) with maybe some larger photos and/or the option to include a 1-2 minute video say.

    Eventually, I would potentially want to generate revenue through taking a commission. Until then, customers would engage with the vendors by obtaining their contact details from my site to sign up for their services. Assuming I went the commission route eventually (As an example, a soccer academy may have the following options):
    1) one-on-one lessons (that would need an option to select a 1-hour slot from a calendar potentially. This will be more the exception than the rule)
    2) Signing up for a whole season – i.e. a date range from say 1 March to 16 August (this is a bit like the events directory) – This will be the main volume of listings

    I’m looking for a directory theme that can accommodate this as far as possible and ideally has compatibility with a page builder like Beaver Builder or Visual Composer (or even a built-in page builder) or at least the flexibility to be able to modify layouts to add opt-ins for example. I see Javo has compatibility with Visual Composer

    I’m looking for a very modern interface. There are going to be a lot of categories within this niche. I’m after the following:
    – maps and location radius slider
    – reviews
    – ideally featured ads within the categories rather than only on the front page
    – video capability for vendors or a subset of them

    I looked at the ones you mention and have come to the following shortlist: Listify, Listable, Javo, Directory+ and another which you don’t refer to which is Service Finder . The latter appears to have all the bells and whistles but is not built via plugins. You don’t mention Listable much. I suspect that is because it is a relatively new product? It looks amazing.

    It appears that Listify and Listable and probably Directory+ and Javo all need a lot of plugins to achieve what I need. What would you suggest? I know you’ve mentioned Listify a lot but wondering what you think about the others too.

    Thanks in advance
    Yaron

    1. Yaron,

      In all cases, you will need plugins to achieve what you are looking for. That doesn’t mean that your website will become bloated and slow but you will need a lot of time to set all up. I think the best fit for you is going to be Javo because of its Visual Composer integration.
      The more customized solution you are looking to create the more time, effort and nerves it will involve.

  16. Hey , nice very topic by the way.
    I checked directory demo by templatic,i like it , but I reed some bad impression about it on the comments
    do you recommend it. I need it for multi purpose listing with paid features.
    Thanks

  17. Hi again Aigars,

    I wanted to ask you if you could suggest me a theme or plugin where users can register as a companies and having a profile, where they could show company info, portafolio, contact details and probably they could sell their products too, an internal messaging system would be perfect. The usage of map and geolocation is not very important since this listing is for a foods exporters community instead business such a restaurants, bars, etc.

    I know you really like listify and I think it may be a the right theme, however I wanted to check if you have any other idea, I think something similar can be done using Buddypress and using companies as groups.

    Regards,
    Miguel

    1. Actually what we are planning is more like a listing for brands. We want to promote the brands and the products, instead promoting their shops, that’s why we don’t want to use geolocation feature.

      1. Hi Aigars,

        You were just right about Listify flexibility, I just spoke to them about my idea and it is indeed the best option for what I have in mind.

        Regards,
        Miguel

  18. Hi Aigars

    Hope your well and thanks for reviewing and suggesting the best themes. I have a question for you. Do any of these support some kind of group creation? I want a theme that acts like a directory but also like the idea of creating a ‘group’ so people talk about experiences.

    Thanks for reading

    Lionel

  19. Hi Aigars, I’ve been looking at the question posed to you and can see that I didn’t really give you much information. Would it be possible to have your private email so I can explain further?

    Thanks

    Lionel

  20. Hi Aigars,

    I would like to design a directory for online merchandise shops for breweries and brewpubs (eventually on a global scale). I’d like listings to be free (except for premium listings), and, most importantly, revenue would be generated by affiliate sales commissions. I don’t really need a map, but blogging and news is important as an added value for the visitor.

    I think Javo might be best…your thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    1. Mike,

      You can feel free to choose any theme since map and all those fancy directory features can be enabled and disabled whenever you need. Blog/news section is part of ony theme listed above since WordPress used to be a blog platform when it started and this feature haven’t gone anywhere.

  21. Hello Aigars,

    Thank you for this great list! But as many of these comments attest to I am having a hard time picking which one might be right for me!

    I am looking to build an international directory of designers and would like to have the following features:

    – Searchable directory (multiple category options, i.e. style, price, location, etc)
    – Detailed profile pages for each business, must include a gallery/portfolio option
    – Review feature
    – Look must feature large prominent images – image is everything!
    – Login capability for visitors (with favoriting feature)
    – Ability to link to external site for members and for blog
    – Option to have ads

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Anna

  22. Hi, I’m looking to build something similar to WeddingWire or the Knot, which is a list of many different vendors. Each vendor has control over their own pictures, videos, storefront, etc. My concept would be musicians only for my local area. I also want it to be very easy for the customer to book the musician directly through the site. Finally, it would need to support reviews and some sort of forum/social interactions. Thanks and I’d love to hear your recommendation.

    1. Unfortunately, there are no exact match for what you are looking for. The easiest would be take any theme as a base and then hire someone to help with customisations. The best place to find freelancers is Envato Studio.

  23. I need a directory theme where map and geo features are optional. My target market are online real estate companies that operate by US state, not physical location. The ability to search by State is primary. Any suggestions?

    1. Bob,

      Maps are optional for every single theme so are other features. Theme demos are made to showcase as much functionality as possible and you can always enable and disable them.

  24. Hi, I’m looking to build a professional membership network directory that will require a fee to join. I’ve been running into issue with the Templatic theme and need some guidance on the best theme to purchase. I would like each member to have a professional profile to include their business details (bio, contact info, website, etc). Individuals that visit the site and individuals within the network should be able to submit referrals (similar to refer a friend) but I would like for this to be tracked if at all possible. Members should also be able to share special events/projects and specials that they are running.

    Any feedback you can provide would be appreciated.

    Kind Regards,

    Kimmie

    1. Kimmie,

      Unfortunately, there aren’t any themes like that. Keep in mind that themes are all about the design and very little about functionality. Functionality comes from plugins. What you might want to check out is BuddyPress plugin and some themes that supports it can be found here.

      1. Thank you so much Aigars for the quick response. I will check out BuddyPress and the additional themes that support it.

  25. Stay away from Vantage and AppThemes at all costs. The theme is not ready for primetime and support is limited to pleas in their forum to fix the bugs. I have gone two weeks without any responses. What a waste of time and money.

    1. Syed,

      Unfortunately, that’s not how licenses for premium products work. If you want to build a legitimate website you must purchase a licence from the developer.
      If you are looking for a free themes you can always find the best examples here.

  26. Hi,

    I want to create a directory for moving companies. I am looking for a theme that allows me to have two types of login: service providers, and users looking for a moving service. And I want it to allow services to have “From” and “To” and handle the complexities that comes with that. For example: Search by destination or start, Calculate price by length of path, etc. What do you recommend?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Par,

      None of the themes does exactly that. Therefore, I would recommend to take Listify theme as the base and hire a freelance developer to make additional tweaks. You can always find skilled developers on Envato Studio.

  27. Hi Aigers

    I am looking to create a website that is essentially a destination blog/directory – very similar to visitdubai.com

    Would Hermes be a suitable theme for me to use or can you provide other suggestions please? I would appreciate your input as this is my first attempt at a website of any type. Thank you.

  28. Very nice WordPress themes for business directories. After reading this article I choose Directory Engine theme for my WordPress website. And this theme is actually very awesome with some unique features, which is full fill my requirements.

  29. Hi Aigars,

    I have seen you believe Listify and ListingPro are the best – I was hoping you could let me know if you believe either of them suit my below requirements better than the other? Or if there was a better one to suit my needs because I would prefer a less image based option where it has simple category navigation.
    • Global website
    • Searchable directory by location and category
    • Business profile pages – but I don’t want them to have to upload images. More about text.
    • Reviews function
    • Free listings and paid listing options
    • Ability to have featured ads within the categories
    • If there is any template that allows categories with drop down menus?

    If you could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    1. Andrea,

      Both themes will get the job done with ease.
      I am not sure about featured ads option for either of those themes as I haven’t used that option but I am sure that there must be some workaround. In the worst case scenario you can always find a freelancer on Envato Studio who will implement this functionality.

  30. Hello,

    I have a Taxi website with different developer authors. Theme, plugins, etc. The web score is very bad. The theme with other plugins are not working good. And have many errors and issues.

    Can you give me an advice. Between all the directory themes. What’s good theme for me?

    Whats the planning?
    The homepage with direct all taxi results in area 20 km geolocation. The taxi business firms must pay if they want to show her Taxi place on the site with info. Also must directly click able mobile phone numbers if the taxi searching client click on the Taxi name for a taxicall. I see you recommend every one Listify theme. But I need directly show the results without enter address of clicking search category etc.

    But this is a test site. You can here see only a few taxi places in Amsterdam and Antwerpen.

    Best Regards

    1. Talebe,

      I wouldn’t recommend switching to new theme as it would require way too much work. Even tho selling themes is my main business. Much better solution would be to fix your existing website. Right now your website has absolutely no performance optimization in place. Caching, static file minification, image optimization and use of CDN would make a huge impact to performance. You could reduce website size at least twice and make it like 3-4x faster with a proper optimizations.

  31. Hello,

    I am new to WordPress in general but I am trying to build a global event directory for races around the world. i.e Marathons, Trail Running etc. so people can look up these events based on their geographical locations. I am looking for something that is stable and that I can grow with. example would be localraces.com I was looking at the Templatic version called Eventum but I thought I read some comments that there is continuous bug problelms with their template.

    What would you suggest I start with? I want a simple clean look like the example provided.

    1. AJ,

      Eventum is currently the only suitable theme for you. You are looking to build a very specific directory style website and there aren’t many options that would be get the job done.

  32. Hi Aigars,

    I really appreciate your comprehensive review but I am confused which theme I should use to suit my requirements.
    I am planning to create a Yelp similar webpage for my small community that are spread around the world.
    I want to include all businesses/Professions that belongs to any community member in order to help others to find what service they need within the community. Should be categorized by profession/location including maps.
    Also, I want businesses/Professionals to register their own business and community members to register themselves for any future contact or mailing list.
    In addition, I need to keep a space for any advertisement.

    Thanks in advance and I would love to hear your recommendation.

    Best regards,

  33. Hi All

    I have bought the Business Finder theme from AIT but did not use it. If anyone want it with all original files and purchase code, I can sent it to you at 30% discount. No kidding, I just wanna sell it as its of no use to me.

    Regards
    Akshay

  34. Very good list of directory WordPress themes. I purchased DirectoryPress a good 6-7 years ago and to be honest the theme looked cheap then and it was a mistake buying it as I never used it.

  35. dear Aigars,

    first of all thanks a million for the blog and your helpful replies. i am trying to build a ranking(directory) site which will list 10 best plastic surgery clinics in my city. the clinics will be listed in a vertical manner starting with the best of 5 stars along with a numbering ranking(out of 5). there will be categories for clinics(nose, Liposuction, etc) and for each category i will list the best 10 clinics. under each clinic i want to have a button “Request a Quote” which will take you to a form contacting the clinic.
    what template do you recommend, please?
    your suggestion is highly appreciated and thanks again for your help
