I spent some time looking for a way to enhance the display of contacts. We were looking for a way to display contacts globally that are companies that sell our products, I stumbled accross this component. Visited the site and read what I could find, the information was a little sketchy but it looked to do more or less what we wanted, significant enhancements over the base contact system so I plumped up and purchased it.

Install went without an error or issue (the CB plugin error is because you do not have CB installed in the first place)

Setup a category, then unfortunately found it did not support sub categories, something I made the mistake of assuming, still I figure I can work around that, setup a contact, map worked great in the admin side, found my location and pin pointed it on the map, thought this looks like it could work very well.

Setup a menu link to the front side, and was a little dissapointed to find nearly none of the pertinent information was displaying, and there was no map, and seems no way to get it to display.

I am confident with a little time I will figure out what is what, but to be perfectly honest, I do rather recent the fact that I have paid for something and there is absolutely no documentation or help within the system at all. I understand they want to charge for their support, but many many companies charge for support, but the package you purchase comes with at the very least a quick start guide, this did not, and that was a dissapointment.

The only way to get support is to use their contact form, and one has to assume since the bulk of their business is in support that this will fall on deaf ears for some time to come.

I would say, hopefully I will get this working, no I dont think it was a complete waste of money, but a little initial help would have been nice without the need to spend a fortune on support for somethign that could very easily be a simple configuration issue, and a quick start guide may well have solved that, which would in turn mean more people (I am sure I am not the only person in this situation) would then purchase the product.

Good looking product, shame about the serious lack of information with the purchase

Hi,

Directorix is very easy to use and no documentation is necessary :). You only have to normally install the component and create menu links.

I am glad I bought this extension.
It looks pro out of the box.
Integrates google maps and compatible with CB (i.e tab in user profile).

Only point to improve : have the possibility to make users pay for their listings.
