The listing detail page of the Directory WordPress theme organizes the content with multiple tabs. These are the tab particular to maps, special offer and a video tab. As the name suggests, the video tab will contain any video that is uploaded with the listings
Separate video tab for the listing
In the Directory WordPress theme the video is not directly provided into the detail page but it is presented in a tabbed form. This makes it very easy for the visitors to directly navigate to the video. They won’t have to scroll down to check for the video. If the video isn’t there for the listing, the tab will not be shown. If it is there, a separate tab with video will appear. The user’s can directly click on the tab and start watching the video.
Consider a website locallisting.com with all the local businesses listed on it. There’s a listing for an amusement park on the website. The visitor will be presented with everything in an organized manner. He will first see the basic details of the park in the overview tab, the images the address,etc. After it he moves to the map tab to view the location of the park on map and get directions to reach it. After this, he comes to the video tab to view the video uploaded with the listing. However, if he wishes to view the video at first he can just click on the video tab instead of scrolling and searching the whole page.
Separate Special Offer tab on listings
The special offers that will be displayed in the special offer tab comes from the special offer custom field. This field is available for the user to enter details into when submitting a listing from the front end. This field plays an important role in attracting the user attention to the listing. Therefore, the data entered into this field will then be shown in a separate tab in the detail page.
Advantages of a separate special offers tab
The special offers are a highlight of the listings. The offers will attract visitor’s attention to the listing. If the special offers are not highlighted or made readily available to the visitors they may leave the listing page unaware of the offers and benefits it has to offer. Therefore the special offers are displayed in a special tab in the listing detail page.
If there is no special offer for the listing, and the field is left blank when submitting the listing than the tab for the special offer won’t be shown at all on the listing detail page.
Consider a website manyproducts.com that has listings for the businesses that sells particular products. The special offers tab plays a very important role here to promote listing and attract user attention. For the visitor – he won’t need to scroll up and down to find information about the current offers. For the listing owners – they will get a special place to display their offers, where the visitors can find them directly.
