Latest features added in the new v4.2 of PHP Business Directory
New functionality to show companies around the user's locationThis new functionality allows to get automatically the user's location from the browser and show a map with the companies near him. There is also a search from on the main page allowing to search the companies within a specified distance from the current location.
Setting the business hoursThe users now have the possibility to add and edit their business hours - the information is displayed after on the business details page on the main site.
Claiming business listingsThis new functionality makes possible for the users to claim very business listings - they can fill a form, sending a message to the website administrator who can review the claim and assign the listing to the users. The functionality could be especially useful when the business listings are bulk imported from csv files, in order to allow the companies to get possession of their listings after that.
Multiple images and videos for the business listingsThe administrator can now allow multiple images or for example to allow an YouTube video to be added to a listing - this can be set separately for the different listing packages / pricing plans and in this way to allow more images, video or more categories to the more expensive business listing plans.
ZIP distance and location search functionalityThe feature allows the users to search business within a selected distance from a ZIP code or from their current location (automatically taken from the browser).
Automatically sharing the business listings on a Facebook fan pageWhen this functionality is turned on, the business listings added on the website can be automatically shared on a Facebook fan page when approved by the administrator. You can check the Facebook page of our default demo website to see an example of that.
