The fifth step in the guide to the Business Directory WordPress plugin will show you how to add a directory listing to your website.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) From the Admin Panel, head to Directory >> Add New Listing. You can also click on the link at the top of the Directory page.


Step 3) The next step is to create a title for your directory listing.


Step 4)On the right-hand side of the New Listing page, you will find the Listing Information. This is split into three sections: General, Fee Details and Transactions. The General settings are split into the total listing cost (leave blank if free), the payment status and whether the listing is Normal or Premium.


Step 5) The next step in the listing information section is Fee Details. These are set to Free, but you can change them by clicking on the link that will take you to your Payment Settings.


Step 6) In the Transactions settings under your new listing, you can click a payment to see the details or approve/reject the transaction. This will be blank if there are no transactions attached to the listing.


Step 7) At the bottom of the listings page, underneath the main body, you can set the Listing Fields/Images associated with the listing, including business website address and links, logo images, phone and email, and much more.


Step 8) You can upload images to your listing – including logos and team pics – by dropping the files into place or uploading them via your hard drive.


Step 9) When you’ve finished with your listing, hit the Publish button, then click on the View Post link at the top of your page.


Step 10) Below is an example of a completed listing.


The next step of the guide will show you how to manage your listings.
