Version 1.8 of WP Business Directory Manager makes use of WordPress 3.0+ custom post types. The way the plugin works has been completely changed to use custom post types. When you upgrade to version 1.8 it will convert your previous installation to the new format. The new format conversion is not guaranteed to work 100% so you are very strongly advised if you have listings in your directory presently to export those listings in case you might need to re-add them manually.
