Content-for-directory-website

Not to long ago we wrote a post that discussed the importance of creating engaging content for your directory website. This is a point that we can’t belabour enough. If you want to create a successful directory website, you’ll have to create content that provides value to your visitors. The directory is important but it’s the content that draws people in and keeps them coming back. Content is also what will help you rank for crucial keywords that attract traffic.

As you sit down to work on your content strategy, one of the first questions you’ll be asking is:

“What kind of content are my visitors searching for?”

Templatic Directory Template Powering MiPuntoMap.com
 

Purpose

The main purpose for developing the MiPuntoMap was to offer the people of Guadalajara, the facility of a city portal, where they could find everything related to entertainment, culture, etc. at one stop. This saves them from the drudgery of going through different sites and finding the relevant content.

Thanks to the google maps integration and location based facilities of the Templatic Directory template. MiPuntoMap is currently selling movie tickets, theater and concerts, as well as codes discounts for hotels, cruises, tours and travels. This provides the opportunity to attract a larger audience.

Our site was hacked !

Posted on

Dear templatic customer,

Let me start by saying that templatic has Never Ever stored any credit card information on our site. All the transactions are only ever handled directly by PayPal or 2Checkout. Our site is only integrated with the above secure payment gateways so your financial data is always safe and never stored by us. In fact we never had access to your credit card or financial information.

Now I will go into detail and share what’s happened.

Our site was hacked recently

As announced on our social media accounts a few hours ago, our site was recently hacked and our databases compromised. It looks like the hacker may have gained access to our files and databases on our server.

We are actively working with sucuri.net to clean and protect the site.

Security vulnerability has been found in few themes

Posted on

Earlier this week we discovered a vulnerability inside our Tevolution plugin and the Video theme. Owners of those products have already been contacted via email. The vulnerability allowed hackers to upload malicious files/scripts using the front-end uploader. The issue has since been patched. If you’re unfamiliar with Tevolution, it’s one of the main components of our popular Directory theme. If one of these Directory themes is currently powering your website please continue reading.

Tevolution plugin

If you are currently using a Tevolution-powered theme please update the Tevolution plugin to it’s latest version (2.3.0). You’ll find the download inside the member area. In case your plugin is extremely customized and you can’t update it make sure you overwrite the following file: /wp-content/plugins/Tevolution/tmplconnector/monetize/templatic-custom_fields/single-upload.php

You can download the new (secure) single-upload.php file by clicking here.

What about older Tevolution versions?

If you’re using Tevolution 2.0 – 2.1.8 update the file provided above and you’ll be fine. Do not update the entire plugin since there is a good chance your theme doesn’t support Tevolution 2.2 and above.

If you’re using Tevolution 1 please contact our support. We will explain how to proceed with securing your site. You can submit a support query by using the our main contact form.

Important support changes at Templatic

Posted on

Over the past past few weeks we have made some hard, but ultimately necessary decisions regarding support. Our old Trellis Helpdesk has been replaced with Groove, an invisible ticketing system that makes easier for us to provide you with quality support.

Templatic Forums are now read-only

The first casualty of this transition to Groove was our good ol’ forum. To be completely honest we’ve been meaning to do this for quite some time but every time we brought it up a small group of vocal forum users changed our minds.

As much as I personally liked the forum, maintaining two separate systems is simply unnecessary. Often times we found ourselves responding to the same issue twice since it was posted in both the forums and Helpdesk. When using a single system (especially one as advanced as Groove) this becomes much less of an issue.

Good news for those who like to look for answers before posting a ticket is that the forums will remain open for at least until the end of 2016. You’ll be able to use the search functionality to find answers to your questions. When we notice no one is visiting the forums anymore they’ll be shut down completely.
