Geotheme is as good as Geoplaces. In fact it is derived from the Geoplaces only. Although cloned from Geoplaces, still there are lots of different options between the duo. Actually, which you should buy entirely depends upon your requirements only.

Directory Portal

The Directory Portal WordPress directory theme is among the newest directory theme on the market. In fact it is the first of its kind to be listed on Themeforest. There are many new and exciting features but if you are looking for multi city options; Well, It does not provide that. Overall, I guess if it provided the multi city option, this theme could have been the front-runner.

Again, Geocraft lacks multi city options. In fact it lacks many features available with Geoplaces and Geotheme. If you are looking for a simple theme for a single city; It is considerable.

The navigator is not exactly a WordPress Directory theme. It is basically a location guide. While looking at its demo, I found that the homepage only consists of map with places being marked as pointers just like we see in Google Maps. And when you click on those pointers, you are shown more details bout that particular location. It’s kind of a new feature.

  1. Hi Ansh

    That’s a really comprehensive list of premium WordPress Directory themes you’ve put together.

    It’s a really great resource for anyone looking to set up a Directory site.

    I hadn’t realised there were so many!

    • Hi Tim, I appreciate that you liked it.

  2. I have used Geocraft WordPress Theme and found best for all my needs. It is extremely easy to setup and it has everything that you want with the city directory.

    • Hi Jim, Thanks for sharing your experience with the readers.

  3. Hi,

    I am interesting to purchase business directory. Which is best you listed and How i installs ,edit?
    I don’t know any coding method? Please help me .You can understand what i am telling

    • Depends on what features you are looking at. I will recommend you to go with geoplaces. It includes all features although some design changes would be required for better site graphics.

  4. I have been researching and reading a lot of reviews about directories and the one thing I am finding is the frisrt one any reviewer mentions is the one they push why is that are you affiliates ? and why is it that the vast majority don’t rate geo places very highly ? Also you mention that Geo places is the and I quote “With many exclusive features like multi-city options, splash homepage, widget based home page setup, mobile ready, event listings etc” But that is not true is it? Every single one of those exclusive items are available in Geo Themes

    • Well, that would be injustice on your part to blame me for being biased. I am not promoting any particular product or theme. Thats why I have written a review post including all differences between geoplaces and geotheme. You can read that and decide on your own which suits your needs.

  5. I found your blog, really interesting in terms of providing information to relevent users.

    Good work guys!!

  6. Hi Ansh
    I was looking for a classifed theme. I liked very much. I need your feedback. Please confirm whether i can buy this or not

    • Hey I guess I missed this theme in the above list. Its really great looking theme.
      Although I can’t recommend it as I don’t know your exact requirements. If it suits your process, then go ahead. Thnx

  7. I loved this post and I’m on to read the article comparing the top two. I know NOTHING about web design but I have big dreams for my business. This information / resource is invaluable for those who are starting this kind of website. Thank you.


  8. I want to create a list for garden services and products. I want to offer one free basic listing. one paying portfolio listing option. The Portfolio; photos, description, map, video link
    I am looking at elist an classifier, not sure which one would be best for my project? I enjoyed reading your blog. Thank You – Francesca

  9. Great info man! I would like to ask for your personal opinion on the following:
    Which of the two themes would you recommend, geoplaces or geotheme?
    they are both similar in many things, this is where I’m a bit confused and frustrated :(
    I don’t want to end up buying the wrong theme. For example, am I able to modify SE, designs and layouts my way like moving around so it wont be exactly the same as the default theme?
    Thanks and god bless!

  10. Hi Great job, I have spent three days scanning for the best directory site for a friend of mine. At the end I found your site! But one important thing is missing in your review, I think…… Is it Multilingual? Y/N?

  11. Great info, and a great list of themes/plugins. I’ve been looking at as many directory themes/plugins as I can find for comparisons.

    Quick question, though, is there a reason you didn’t mention DirectoryPress from PremiumPress?

  12. I am looking for something like YELP clone but only for restaurants in only one city. I need something that is stable and reliable. A responsive design is also very important for my needs. Big map with all objects listed is also a must. I think the first 6 themes in this list can do it for me. Can someone suggest me the best one of them?

  13. what exactly do you mean by multi-city and single city only?

    Just trying to figure out if I need it or not.

    Please explain

  14. Thank you for the reviews. Do you know how Geotheme compares to Vantage or Sabai?

  15. hey! you have a good list of themes out there. thanks for the directories list.

  16. It’s always great to get previews of many themes under a single post.Thanks for sharing this.

  17. Looking for a WordPress theme that looks and works like these at Any suggestions?

  18. Any idea if any of these include both a Geo location Map, and the ability for multiple locations?
    It seems that multiple locations is the missing link. Not sure why, because most businesses have multiple locations! But, these themes require businesses to upload the same information over and over in order to get all locations on the maps. Why not multiple locations options when they list their listing??

  19. Marvellious themes. I came here searching for classified themes to use on a classified site and i found some really cool options. Thanks for that!

  20. Fantastic list of Directory Sites, Thank You!
    I have been running a WordPress Directory site for some time now, using the GeoPlaces Theme. When GeoPlaces first launched this theme was riddled with ‘bugs’. Frustrated users started looking at alternatives and at that stage, there were no other ‘decent’ directory themes. So, a frustrated developer went out and created GeoTheme. When GeoTheme launched it too, was full of bugs and reviews for both themes were poor.

    I stuck with GeoPlaces due to the fact that I wasn’t prepared to spend more money on another theme and quite honestly, GeoPlaces Version 4 is now a very robust and feature rich Directory Theme with Multi-City Support. Where GeoPlaces falls short (in my opinion), is in the way it handles e-mail notifications (this works, but it could be better).

    One Feature I find lacking in most Directory themes is Package Level Features Control. By that I mean that few themes offer the functionality to restrict or grant listing owners with more or less featured based on the ‘package’ they sign-up for.
    eg. Free Listings should offer restricted functionality, whilst Featured or Paid Members should get access to more functionality.
    BusinessFinder (listed above) is the only one I have found, to date, that offers this functionality!

    And so, my search for a new directory theme continues…

  21. Aware some blog. I got helpful to get good business directly wordpress theme for my client.

    Thank you very much

  22. I find this list a heaven-sent, because I’m actually right now in the middle of deciding which theme to use for a directory site I’m building.

    I came across Geoplaces and all its variants and the Directory theme from Templatic. It was getting difficult to keep track though.

    So nice to have all of them nicely in one place, side by side.

  23. SpotFinder is coming back soon guys. None of these themes even come close to SpotFinder’s potential, so we’ll see how things shake up in the next few months.
