Unfortunately there are still some problems with the latest major update of the plugin. This new problem was affecting new installs and prompted one user to call the plugin a messed up disaster. I can fully appreciate his frustration and sincerely apologize to anyone else who had a similar experience. You can click here to see the details of the issue
To rectify this problem I’ve had to remove the automatic creation of the business directory page and sub pages from the installation process. That means when you install the plugin for the first time you will need to go to your dashboard under the “Pages” tab and manually create the Business Directory page following the instructions included in the README.txt file.
