Interested to know if anyone here has used PHPMyDirectory and how it rates against these directories? I use PHPMyDirectory and WordPress but am getting tired of duplicating changes in both platforms… I’m looking for a directory script that matches what I get in PHPMyAdmin to hoepfully drop it and use wordpress 100%…

I am using the wp business directory manager plugin, and it is amazing! The only issue it has is when you have other plugins installed, they seem to battle against each-other and cause some errors. Anyone else have similar issues?

I agree, I didn’t find anything that I found quite sufficient just yet. I will wait for now and likely end up paying for a business directory in time

Does someone know a wordpress plugin that can create a wordpress local store directory (like yellow pages) where each store (post) have complete details like store name, what they sell/description, address, phone, homepage links (optional) and if possible google maps integration and store picture?

I really need this kind of plugin for my new project.
