Lightbulb Creating a New Directory

Hello V7n'ers.

This is my first post and I hope to get awesome responses (very optimistic).

Let me get straight into the meat.

Quote:
I want to create a Niche Directory
A: I saw there are many Free and Paid PHP Scripts available.
What are your views, Which one to be used. I know the paid one will have much more benefits and I definitely have budget for it.
Or
Should I create my own script.

B: I saw CMS like Wordpress and Joomla etc have directory themes available.
What are your views, aren't they easy to be used.
Or
Should I create my own theme.

"I am more inclined towards wordpress and a ready made theme"

Points to be noted:
- The Niche is very professional and I want to make this directory very professional as well.
- I am not a Programmer, So will either hire some one local in my city or outsource it online. (Please give your recommendation).
- I haven't done much preparation but the following things have been done and in planning.
- Excellent premium Niche Domain (Done).
- VPS Hosting (Planned).

I hope, I didn't make my point too complicated. and also is creating directory is really a rocket science..

Then you must give it a head start asap. Don't get much get confused. As far as programming part is concern leave it to a professional whom you can hire easily online as there are plenty of freelancer available in market who may charge a lot less because of huge competition.

111 views and only one reply.

Just to update:

I bought Domain Name.
I bought Hosting.

I decided for Wordpress.

Can some one please give me an honest advice and suggestion, Whether

1: To outsource the theme designing and development
Or
2: Purchase a directory theme.

Can some one guide on the best wordpress directory theme that they have used.

Thanks.

Web Directory

I have experimented with various directory scripts, and have a SLIGHT tendancy to recommend wordpress for anything. I am currently working on some nifty map integration to allow the front end to rely on a map exclusively to show all the listings in the database. I have used the directorypress theme for wordpress (version 5) and have been able to completely customize all apsects of it. I am NOT finished with my project, but you can have a look at the ALMOST finished map functions here. http://www.sheffield-business-direct...ess-directory/

I have also decided to run a little SEO project on the side to see how far I can get with the keywords WEB DIRECTORY, so my first project on this has just gone live. It is just a quick stab at it, but you can check the site here.

If you want to maybe have a chat on the topic of directories then please PM me, FREE chat, not selling anything ;-)
