It´s an essential and powerfull component for Sobipro and works perfectly well.
Good and clear documentation.
But the most important is that their support is amazing.
I asked for something which was not currently shown in their extensions and they design it for me!!!

Thanks Extly

I must admit.. at first I was worried about attaching anything outside of SobiPro's own extensions to the directory.. but Sobipro does lack certain things that make a onlnie directory great.

That is where XTDir comes in.. The extension gives you the benefit to add promotional ranking to your directory with a way to allow online payments to have immediate page rank results.

The documentation is weak, but I have been told it is being worked on. And as I write this review there was a release to help explain it better.

Support is nothing but A+ rated.. the team answer all of my tickets responsively and kept at them until solved.

Indexing of the ranking system can be done either manually or via cron job for larger sites.. which is what we had to do.. 3000 listings re-index ever 20 mins in about 14 seconds on our virtual private server.. (your mileage may differ)

Again, nothing but get things to say.. and actually make so $$$ on page ranking on the way!
