Are you using the new codes, added in the latest release, or the old ones, prior to 2.1.x ? Also you must insert the following shortcode into the page you created for the business directory:
(code must be inserted between  brackets as in [code here] ). This is mandatory. Maybe I’m misinterpreting the problem though, so please give me more details about what you mean by “using the shortcode directly”. An URL to your site would be a great help.
I can see now that I wasn’t that clear in my communication. Sorry for that.
I’m using the short code “businessdirectory-viewlistings” as I want a page that both shows me the possible categories and all listings, which the main page template won’t let me do.
I thought “WPBUSDIRMANUI” was the old shortcodes. See http://businessdirectoryplugin…..codes-2-1/
What can I do to get “businessdirectory-viewlistings” to work?
“businessdirectory-viewlistings” does show the search bar, but no listings.
Thanks for your help:)

We’ll get this fixed for 2.1.3. Sorry for the hassles. Stick with the old shortcodes for now.
I’m having the same problem (ie category shortcodes don’t work, whether with the old codes or the new ones) – any idea when this will be fixed? I need to get new site live and really need this feature working before I can make it live.
