Custom fields for Spaces + Use of the custom fields for filters and search

It would be ideal to allow the admin to add custom fields (similar to Xprofile) into a space, that will then represent back to the members of that space more info and allow great filtering/searching

  1. This should be the first thing to focus on to actually market yourself as a “Directory” plugin.

    Categories aren’t enough for a true directory substitution.

    I’m looking into using Pods (extending Spaces capability & adding extra Taxonomies) and Search & Filter to create my own version, but essentially, to truly call Spaces a directorist replacement, it needs to have custom taxomony creation built in (several – i.e. – price range, industry, business type (services, product, brand) and other custom fields for very niche sites)

    Zip code, city, and state search should also be considered.

    One client is looking to make a directory for lawyers and categorize by practice, types of clients they represent, location, and online vs offline. That’s already 4 filter parameters. That client doesn’t really need a feed capability, but more just a landing page for each listing with about, images, contact info (services tab is a bonus) and the main index that’s searchable & filterable – which is most important.
