Vantage 1.3 Released

January 1, 2014 | Josh Ronk | Updates

Just when you thought Vantage had all the features that a great WordPress directory theme needed…here comes another great release with two of the most coveted features:

  • Recurring Payments Support
  • Faster and More Powerful Search

Recurring Payments

Now you, as the site owner, have 3 options for your pricing plans:

  • Recurring Optional
    • A plan that offers a recurring option, the user will be allowed to choose whether they want the plan to recur, or just expire at the end of it’s term.
  • Forced Recurring
    • A plan that recurs, but does not offer the user the option.
  • Non Recurring
    • A plan that just lets the listing expire after the plan’s set time period. This works like pricing plans always have before.

Vantage 1.3 -  Recurring Payments Support

With these new recurring options, you can setup your pricing plans to suit your varying needs, and now your customers will greatly appreciate the convenience that the recurring functionality provides.

More Powerful Search

Search just got a boost! Now, your searches will complete faster time than ever before and will now be even more thorough! Now, when a user searches for a search term, that term will be searched across the following fields:

Searches for Listings:

  • Title
    • Now, If your Listing title includes an apostrophe, like for example “Joe’s Pizza”, a search for either “Joes Pizza” or “Joe’s Pizza” will return the correct result!
  • Description
  • Categories
  • Tags
  • Address
  • Website URL
  • Phone Number
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • & All Custom Form Values!

Searches for Events:

  • Title
    • Now, If your Event title includes an apostrophe, like for example “Macy’s Parade”, a search for either “Macys Parade” or “Macy’s Parade” will return the correct result!
  • Description
  • Categories
  • Tags
  • Event Address
  • Event Website URL
  • Phone Number
  • Event Location Address
  • Event Location URL
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • & All Custom Form Values!

There are also many other great smaller features, and bugs fixed. See the Vantage 1.3 Release Notes for further details.

    Is the demo still running on 1.2? I wanted to validate some of the updates, and it seems like the demo hasn’t been updated to 1.3

      @Bradley, we’ve just refreshed the demo site so it’s using 1.3 now.

    Is there a way for us to create custom taxonomies? I was unable to create a location-based one in 1.2. Instead of creating a multisite, I think it would be great to have a custom taxonomy – “Location” so we can divide listings by States.

  5. Hi,

    Vantage looks great, I would like to know if it is possible to add another page after “Overview” and “Review” or its only those 2?

    thank you,

    Ezekiel

      @ezek, it’s not supported in Vantage at this time, and may be added in a future release.
