Here is a sample of a listing on my site: https://downtownorangeville.ca/business-directory/6630/shoe-kat-shoo/
Is there a way to clean up that formatting (maybe a CSS snippet) so that the image and the text are more split into columns? The text wrapping around the image is a bit of a mess display wise.
We suggest using custom CSS to do basic tweaks like fonts, spacing and colors. Here is an article about how to use custom CSS with Business Directory in a way that doesn’t get overwritten on upgrade of BD:

I am familiar with CSS basics, I was hoping you had some snippet available for this though since it seems like it would be a pretty common issue. Thanks for the reply, and the help with the other issues, I will just skip this one for now.
I love the plugin feature set and ease of use, and the only thing preventing me from recommending pro/extensions to a client are some of these formatting/styling issues. Display of single posts should really have an option to display in columns/grids, the text wrapping around images/icons just does not look very good on desktop (looks fine on mobile). While I expect to do some styling work, something that basic shouldn’t really require it. So just a suggestion for future updates that hopefully doesn’t come across as rude.
Ian, thank you so much for your input. It’s good to know that you’re finding BD plugin easy to use!
Regarding the styling, BD plugin is quite adaptive and so the output is sometimes affected by your WP theme. You can test this by temporarily switching to a default WP theme and see how the output changes. I agree that basic stuff shouldn’t require customization work, however, we’ve made our plugin flexible enough that you can add your own customizations when required.
We also offer Directory Skins (it’s like a WP theme, BUT it only affects your directory and you can keep your existing WP theme with it!). This is the quickest and easiest way to change the look of your directory. These are available for purchase here: http://businessdirectoryplugin…..um-themes/
For the more adventurous and layout-based changes, you can override templates: http://docs.businessdirectoryp…..e-override but if that’s not enough, you can go full-bore and customize anything in the plugin if you have the proper skill set:
