With the ability to display and showcase everything that’s going on in their community GeoPlaces is perfect for all those that want to create a rich website for their town or city.
Customizing the homepage is easy as drag n’ drop, literally. Widgets allow you to populate the homepage with various content while still preserving that clean and beautiful look.
Included homepage, category and detail listing page Google Maps make this theme extremely easy to navigate. Maps are available for the home, category and detail page.
Each field you see inside the place or event submission form can be modified inside the theme’s extensive back-end section. Creating new ones is possible as well.
Managing multiple cities in GeoPlaces does not require installation of WordPress MultiSite, the theme will take care of it for you.
Using WPML you can setup a multilingual city directory where visitors can change the default language per their requirements.
Claim Listing functionality makes it possible for you to populate the directory with content (so it’s not empty) and then let the actual owners claim them.
GeoPlaces comes with two additional custom post types built-in – Places and Events. Each come with their own functionality, pages, widgets, etc.
No worries, we didn’t forget about the blog. Starting a blog with this advanced theme is as easy as creating a new category and adding some posts to it, no further tweaking necessary.
The included coupon module will allow you to offer discounts for created price packages. This will for sure come in handy early in the sites’s life-cycle.
Price package power
The primary way to make money with this city directory WordPress theme is to charge for content/listing submissions. Both submission forms (Places/Events) support price packages that allow you to define aspects such as duration or price.
Allowing you to earn even more money are featured listings. By opting to feature their listings (make them display at the top), visitors pay more for their submission.
We made a lot of customizations of the Geo Places theme for our site, and the Templatic support team was very responsive throughout the entire process. I highly recommend working with them.
