Multisite is a WordPress feature that allows creating a Network of sub-sites within a single WordPress installation but each sub-site will be under a separate sub-domain. So if you have purchased a domain name called MyDirectory.com and you are going to have multiple sub-domains such as sub1.MyDirectory.com, sub2.MyDirectory.com and so on, then you may purchase an only single license for one primary domain. You may have multiple sub-domains under the same single license that was purchased for the primary domain. For more details go here.
Why should I choose ListingPro over the other popular theme?
In most directory themes you just pay for the theme or very basic functionality and then you will have to purchase several external plugins sometimes from various different authors and get it all working together comes a nightmare as if you run into an issue every plugin author will tend to point fingers at each other and you end up spending tons of dollars on a directory site that doesn't work as expected. During our research, we found out that most of the WordPress Directory Themes which are priced around $60-$90 do not include all the necessary plugins to create a decent enough directory site without having to purchase additional plugins they may cost you up to $700 to sometimes even $1500+. We wanted to create something that a user can purchase and doesn't have to worry about any additional plugins for building a directory listing site with core directory listing features and we tried our best to do exactly that. We built a Mega-Powerful All-in-One extension that will allow you to add listing from front-end and back-end, users can claim a listing from front-end and admin can accept or reject from the backend, admin can generate income by charging users upon upgrading to paid listing or even when they like to promote their listing via ads. I can keep on going for several hours about what ListingPro can do. If you are still not convinced that's ok. Check out what's some of the industry leaders has to say. [WATCH VIDEO]

How does the Search works?
- Our Intelli-sense based Search is the next-generation archive search system giving instant live suggestions for keywords, categories, listing name, and even in combinations (tags in category).
- The Location search is City (region) based. Cities can be added manually or automated with Google Maps API.
- In addition, when a user searches for something it can also take them to an archived page with all the listings containing the most relevant data according to their search, giving them the best possible results.
- The advanced search algorithm is designed from ground-up to dramatically change the behavior based on the way the directory admin has configured the settings in Theme Options.
- For example, the search can be either static, were if the user type in car, only the listing that has the word car in it will show, or have your search more dynamic were if user type in the word car they can get listings that also have words such as auto, automobile, workshop, etc.
