Get your directory up and running in a few minutes by installing Sample Data or use our Jump Start Configurator in JV-LinkDirectory.

The functionality is excellent. I haven't used half of the features, but the ones I have used work well.
Ease of use
It is easy to get started but there are a lot of options to configure so it takes a while to get to a finished product.
Support is superb. I needed an extra feature and the developer worked with me to deliver it in the next release. 10/10
The documentation is generally good, but as there are so many options some of them are not covered in detail.
Value for money
Good value, especially given the support provided.
I used this to: A national trade directory
This extension is amazing with the features it offers; has everything you need and more.
Ease of use
Very easy to use; has Jump Start Configurator and sample data; set up directory under 5 minutes!
Great! Probably the best service I have ever received. Fast and courteous support. Understood what I needed and helped me within hours.
Documentation is comprehensive but most of the settings are intuitive.
Value for money
Great product. Great value right out of the box.
I used this to: I set up skilled trades business directory for local professionals. The directory is great for some of businesses that don't have a website and this allows them to have a micro page with proper profile and social media links.

Professional & helpful

Ease of use
Easy to understand and use.
I would say 150%. Absolute professional support and development team. If you need a developer for your side. I know who to call.
All I need is there.
Value for money
Every single cent.
I used this to: A very complex portal. YourTravel.Center and the developer team supported us to bring all the different plugin together.
The functionality is far more than I need. Not much is missing although I miss the instant link checker. Will come I hear.
Ease of use
Rather easy I would say but tons of functions makes it a bit harder to use but after some practice no problems.
Excellent! I had some questions before buying and I got a very rapid respons.
Value for money
Rather expensive but a high quality software so the feeling is expensive and good.
I used this to: I have a personal link collection just for fun and I hope that others find it useful.

Ease of use
I have used this now through a few version upgrades and it keeps getting better/easier to use.
Support has been responsive and very helpful - happy customer!
Good documentation and plenty of hover/mouse over pop-up helpful hints.
Value for money
Definitely worth the money - I have tried plenty of free/open source products and do not regret spending $ for this - it's worth it.
I used this to: I use this for an Outdoor Adventure directory - started long ago as a fun project and an excuse to play on the 'interwebs'. Be sure to combine JV-LinkDirectory with JV-ShrinkTheWeb - they go together like chocolate and peanut butter!
There has been a lot of thought put into this extension. Great work!
Ease of use
Easy to setup and configure, but good features for power users as well.
Awesome! I had some questions and got answers fast!
Extensive and good.
Value for money
Well worth the money.
