Let us start the new positive week with new features and improvements. DirectoryEngine introduces another great function which helps you bring more convenience to your users – DE MultiRating.

DE MultiRating

If you are looking for an extension which helps to set up different ratings, DE MultiRating is your answer. Using it, you can allow your visitors to rate a post based on multiple criterias and titles.
Different from the previous versions which users can only rate an overall point. With DE MultiRating, admins can easily create different criterias in the back-end. You can create as many criterias as you want and set up the maximum number as well.

Especially when you’re running a directory site for places, it can be considered as helpful testimonials for users. The place owners can decide which criterias they want their places to be rated, based on this, they will have referrals to improve their service and serve customers better
While surfing the site, users can express their opinions about the listings and review the place on various aspects beside the main point. Let the golden stars say the needed words.

Improve email content

From now on, when users send a private message to the place owners via “Contact owner” button, the owners will receive a notification including a link redirect them to the place’s detail page.

  • Fix “Load more” issue: The “Load more” button works fine now, when you click on it, it’ll show more places with entire description.
  • Fix “Favorite” issue: The places you’ve added to your favorites listings are now completely display in your profile section.

    Very poor service, you should not be charging for functionality that should be built into the directory engine already. I wont be using Directoryengine anymore and will be porting my site over to a theme I got on Themeforest that already has better features.

      Hi,

      I know you are feeling disappointed and sorry for that. Actually, the basic feature “rate a place” has already included in the theme and “DE MultiRating” is a improved feature. Also, it’ll be updated with more features.

      Hope that you can understand our situation.

      Agreed. These add-ons are getting expensive. At minimum, custom fields should have been inlcuded in the basic functionality.

      Hi Sandro,

      Really sorry for my mistake, we’ve just released DirectoryEngine version 1.8.1. FreelaceEngine’ll be released later within a couple of days.

    You guys are focused upon sales, I know it’s important to survive. But you are giving lesser features compared to the price. I have shifted to another theme on themeforest to a developer who is devoted towards making the perfect theme rather than earning money…oh, and guess what he actually is making good bucks.

      Hi Morgan,

      As I mentioned above, this extension will be improved even more in the future. We promise it’ll be a better product.

    Is that mean all your themes updates will be for fixing bugs and improving the current theme?. and any further new feature will be as paid service ? (new plugin)
    Why do I have to pay $19 extra to have it in my theme?
    Guys I think you should respect your customers by giving new features updates instead of asking for more money through new plugins.

      Hi,

      As we mentioned in the blog post, you can see that we still provide new feature in the theme. We’re also collecting ideas in our Forums to improve the product more. However, with feature requires more work and have a great potential to develop in the future, we have to charge a little bit.

      We’ve always appreciated all the feedback and will consider even more before charging any product.

    Seriously this is an awesome feature that these guys are putting out. If you were to get this stuff coded up yourself it would cost you a lot more. Seriously its only a few bucks!!!!! Will this work for freelance engine reviews? Also is there an plugin to notify freelancers of job posts matching their skills? Thanks for everything

      Hi,

      Thank you very much for your support, it means a lot to us.

      Currently, this extension hasn’t been applied for FreelanceEngine yet and we’ll consider the idea for the “review extension”. Thanks again for your suggestion.

      About the job alert, we’re about to release a new extension called AE Alert, it’ll have the feature you want and you can use it in both FreelanceEngine and DirectoryEngine. Please keep looking forward to it.

    As i see in the enginethemes, first launched was all about customers and nice features themes, with nice design !!! You change the whole website as a landing webpage to make sales!! You add simple addons that you sale ! i have all your theme, but i don’t use it in any of my projects ! For example QA Engine have no way to moderate answers, the admin have to visit every question in the website looking for Answers to moderated! its not a good solution for a website that become big !

    Some open source solution have better options than apps by enginethemes! why i am choosing enginetheme even when they start a theme, the theme become more mature by the time! more updates/options etc! But as i can see from now ! you focus guy to make some more features via extensions! you are free to do so ! but some are basic as most commenters say here ! So i move from classified to osclass ! i buy all your theme, get it mature ! and we sure can buy some more extension if its more advanced !
