I have the look of the business directory perfect. I have everything set up on the backside perfectly. Now I want to copy over to new domains to create the same business directory for different cities/states. What is the easiest way to do that?
What I have done is backed up home directory files and down loaded the database and imported both (transition was successful) got city and state names changed then I see that the form fields did not get copied over. After checking the internet I see you don’t offer a easy solution to export and import the form fields.
I tried creating a form field and it acts like I created it but it does not create the field. I do not get an error message.
I have about 15 domains that I want to use to offer business directories. I hope there is a simpler solution than to rebuild the backend each time. Plus it isn’t creating the fields for some reason.
I believe what you’d need here is what we call BD Migration Plugin. You may find more details here: https://businessdirectoryplugin.com/knowledge-base/migrating-bd-another-site/
Hope it helps!
I actually got that taken care of. But I do need help changing this I have dug around everywhere and can’t find it. I want to change this /elbert-county-businesses/ to this /businesses/
Can you tell me where that is?
That is the title of the page that is created for the plugin. You can change that to be anything you like by doing the followings:
1. Under your WordPress dashboard, go to Pages>All pages
2. Hover the mouse over Business Directory page and click on ‘edit’ option.
3. On the “Edit Page” screen, change the page title to your desired name and click ‘update’ button to save your changes.
You can also update the page permalink from there.
Thanks, I actually renamed that page url to /business-directory/ and it did not change the url. I also changed permalinks to default and back and that did not fix it. Switched themes and back. I also have the permalinks set to this.
Your help would be great on figuring out why it doesn’t change
Did you update the page title and permalink as shown in this screenshot?
Also I just did a test and when I hit complete listing this happened. When I was filling out the form I knew that there were a lot of questions not showing, like phone number and street address and more
Can you please tell what version of WP and BD plugin do you currently have?
It sounds like you have some conflicts at your hands so I’d suggest ruling out any conflicts first. Here is an article about how to test for theme and plugin conflicts with Business Directory, which may help pinpoint the issue:
Please let me know.
I disabled all of the plugins didn’t change, I then changed the theme and it did not change. I want to get someone to take a look. I have 6 websites doing the same thing. I am using Version 188.8.131.52 and the wp version 5.3.2, dynamik theme with beaver builder all using the newest releases. Also want the url problem looked at.
We are happy to take a direct look at this. We need the following information to debug the issue:
– WP admin username
– WP admin password
– WP login URL
– FTP username
– FTP password
– FTP servername/IP address
