I would like to have a native integration with WPAdverts that allows Spaces to publish classifieds via their Spaces profile. The classifieds should then be displayed in their own tab and the WPAdverts contact form should optionally be linked to the Spaces messaging system.
It is essential for a Directory solution to include the ability to monetize the listings such as an integration with a membership plugin to restrict the creation of new spaces, limit the number of spaces that can be created by membership, and the ability to add a space as a “featured listing.” Other features of the spaces profiles could be added or removed from membership tiers as well, such as the video upload, the association with an existing group, and even the activity feed tab as an extended social feature beyond the basic listing. Note that Paid Membership’s Pro has…
On setup you can select a Location, then in the settings of the listing you can access the Google location. this is confusing my members as they are always asking why doesn’t it use Google maps rather than a manual Location selection, which I have to keep directing them. Can the Google Maps address be on the setup as well as if not without the Manual Location.
I love the ability to message spaces, but I was wondering if you all had considered working with Better Messages for the messaging aspect. I love that they have the widget option and their message system is already somewhat integrated with BB. It would give a lot of us that messenger like feel that we want too. And it would work in App.
Would be great to have a shortcut that would let us show the space owners how many visited their site. We could put this in a dashboard or custom page.
Some users like to work in chunks on creating their business page. This is helpful when resizing graphics and playing around with formatting and verbiage to fit the specific formats of this plugin. Having a DRAFT mode also allows business to turn their page on and off as necessary. This also has the added benefit of being able to run automation off of the publishing of the page. This has implications on sending to main BB feed, emailing community members, and posting to social media. If this were done automation plugins could be updated to support these actions.
It would be great if we could use wordpress’s tag functionality to attach relevant tags to each space. This would allow a many-to-many filtering system of organization to supplement the hierarchical parent-child organization system in place. Use case: I have an interest in getting some “pad Thai”. The directory is businesses in Washington. The organization to get the results page is restaurants > chinese. If there are 4 restaurants tagged #padthai, then I am able to directly get to the spaces I want.
The services formatting has a few issues that make it very difficult to create a list of services, particularly if you want to use a list of bullets. 1) I would suggest enabling the tinyMCE editor for the service descriptions so people can use bullets or other formatting in the description as desired. 2) It seems that there is a limited amount of text characters that can be entered for services descriptions. Right now there is a limit though it is very difficult to tell what the limit is and create a suitable description. I would suggest you allow unlimited…
