Searching for and finding the best directory theme for WordPress can seem like a daunting task. There are quite a few options to pick from, truth be told, and those options are bound to leave you scratching your head as you try to figure out which theme presents the best solution.

In the previous tutorial we have shown how to use E-Junkie. In this tutorial, lets learn how to add the buy now link from e-junkie in our themes. We’ll take our eBook theme as an example in this tutorial.
Step 1: Getting the link of “Buy Now” from E-junkie:
- Login to E-Junkie.
- Click on “Get BUY NOW/CART buttons for your products“
E-Junkie lets you deliver your digital products like eBooks, icons, pictures, etc to your customers.
Advantages of using E-Junkie:
- E-Junkie works in such a way that it prevents your files from being shared by many people.
- Cost efficient – The monthly plan starts from just $5 and mostly it would suffice to many people as you can upload upto 10 files totaling 50 MB in size.
- Saves you from the hassles of hiring a professional programmer to integrate Ecommerce features.

Before you even start with Step 1, back up your site and database. For the beginners, it’s simply creating a backup of your site in case anything goes wrong. Your web host control panel should be able to guide you through creating a site backup.
Install WordPress 3.0 or upgrade to it.

For example, in our Free Directory Theme Resources list, we are showing “new” tag beside some of the recent posts. Also, there are different use cases for this plugin. For example, you might want to show “popular” or “recommended” or “trending” or any other such relevant tag beside a post title which would help you get the attention of the user and as a result, increase traffic to those particular posts.
