It has been few weeks since the last time we announced the release  of DirectoryEngine – Our Best Multi-purpose Directory WordPress Theme ver 1.8.6. And now, we would like to inform  that some bugs have been fixed and new features have been implemented in a new version of DirectoryEngine: DirectoryEngine ver 1.9!

Update Author Profile

Previously, the account page of an author was also the profile page which was displayed for guests and visitors. However, we now allow authors manage their information on the User Dashboard, which is only them can view and edit it. For guests/visitors, the information of an author is displayed on  the User Profile Page.

Showing Distance From A Current Location

With this new feature, all you need is allowing DirectoryEngine to locate your current place. And then, you will know exactly how far is it from your place to the restaurant/hotel/event you want to go! Very convenient, right?
