I have been using this plugin for a little while now and I have played around with the various settings but still the directory on my site looks very untidy. For example, if you visit the main page ( http://touringtrader.co.uk/campsites/ ) I find it very hard to differentiate one ad from the next when scrolling down the pageThumbnail images are very blurred on the main page.
When viewing a listing, the main photo on the left protrudes across into the text and the rest of the thumbnail images are at the bottom of the page, I think they should be underneath the main image, this example: http://touringtrader.co.uk/cam…..-campsite/
Could anyone please offer any advice as to how I can make the plugin fit better with the look of my website? I dont want to purchase any additional premium modules if I cant get this looking better than it does.
I’ve viewed your directory and apparently, your theme isn’t giving enough space for the listing to display correctly. You can alter that by customizing the template or by using custom CSS. You can find more details here:
Hope it helps.
How easily the plugin adapts to your theme has a great deal to do with how clean the theme is and the quality of the code that went into it. We used to have a template-based system, but everyone hated making customizations just to fit in with their theme. So we changed that to auto-integrate with themes and allow for template overrides where necessary, but not all themes are well-behaved or well-written, so some issues like this come up. There’s no way to make a “one size fits all” guide to customizing, because it would always depend on the theme itself.
If you don’t believe me, try switching themes temporarily and watch how the plugin’s look changes radically each time. Try a default theme like TwentyTen.
I personally have had good luck with WooThemes because they are pro WordPress developers and know what they are doing. I use their themes on many sites, all with great success and minimal hassle. http://woothemes.com
