Business Directory Plugin has lots of advanced and detail-oriented features. Users utilize these features to make their listing sites smarter. The table and 2-column layout options are 2 of them. Let’s take a closer look one by one.
Table directory layout
It’s the most advanced one among all 3 listing layouts. Using this layout, you can present your listing items in a sortable table.
Yes, you’ve heard that right. It’s not just an ordinary table. Your visitors can sort the table items by clicking the headers!
A sortable table can improve your directory browsing experience in several ways. These include:
- Visitors can see more listing items in less space.
- A table view lets the users compare the listings at a glance.
- Visitors can sort the listing items in the table by different criteria.
- Business directories with ratings can present data more efficiently.
- Large directories with lots of items can save visitors time with table views.
- Besides the regular listing layouts, a table can be used to give a quick view.
Two Column layout
The 2-column layout comes as the duet version of the default single column layout.
Do you find the table layout a bit more condensed? Or, maybe you feel that the default solo column layout takes much space? Then you should really try the 2-column layout.
It will improve your directory structure in the following ways (including but not limited to).
- It can be used as the main listing layout for most of the directories.
- Presents more content without making the page look dense.
- More listings at the top mean more monetization opportunities.
- Better comparative view than the default listing layout.
- Fits for any type of listing site, rather than those with brief texts.
- Easily fits any screen size without any major transformation.
