We’re finally ready to reveal the new look and key features coming in Vantage 4.0! It’s by far our most advanced theme yet. In addition to a design refresh, the code under the hood has been almost completely rewritten.
It’s been quite a while since our last blog post due to some personal health and family issues. Things have gotten better and thanks to those who have passed along their well wishes.
Work has begun on a new escrow system which means HireBee and Taskerr will be able to offer percentage-based fees (in addition to fixed fees). This has been the number one requested feature of both themes (even though Taskerr hasn’t even been released).
We’ll initially roll out PayPal Adaptive Payments — the most globally accepted escrow gateway option. Next in line will be an up-and-coming escrow service called, Balanced Payments. Both are powerful solutions that any site owner should consider to maximize their sales.
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
Vantage 1.2 has been released! This release, Vantage’s most Event-ful release ever, really puts Vantage on the map big time. Vantage has navigated and sorted through many new features and excels across multiple categories of greatness.

Those who already own Vantage, should already be familiar with this feature. It works like the normal Posts menu on WP backend, but to create custom forms. Each new form can have any custom field type and can be assigned to one or multiple categories.
Well, here it is. Vantage 1.1 has been released. With this release, it could be said that we’re claiming it may be your favorite release yet. You’ve been patiently waiting for new features and updates, and we have listened. Our development team has been working hard to deliver an awesome feature-packed release!

You can now import or input many listings and flag them as “Claimable”. When the actual business owner finds their listing on your Vantage site, they can “Claim” it. After their payment, and upon your approval, the listing is handed over to them. They can edit, upload images, upload PDFs, modify any custom fields, etc.
I’m sure you all have been waiting with bated breath, and your patience has been rewarded. I’m here to announce that the first update to Vantage is here.
Vantage 1.0.1 has a bunch of stuff that you’ve been asking for:
You asked, we listened. Login, Registration, and the rest of the user experience is themed for an immersive experience for your users.
Bundled Child Theme
We’ve bundled a child theme right along with Vantage. The child theme is the absolute basics but it’s a head start to creating child themes the best way possible. All you have to do is move it from the Vantage directory to the Themes folder, and start modifying.
