I’m asked a lot about the simplest way to create a directory listings database to add content and functionality to websites. There are lots of different options available of course, including the development of bespoke database software with tailored interfaces that are suited exactly to your audience. However a solution like this is not always needed and can often be simpler and easier than you think to implement using your favourite CMS.
In this blog post I am reviewing a selection of plugins that can be used on a Wordpress site to create a Business Directory Listings database. The plugins I’ve looked at can be built into an already functioning website, or incorporated into the design of a new site, however I’ve focused this time on easy integration into an already existing website.
