Hi Mark,

I have been running some type of local directory since 2000. This is by far the easiest software to update. I am also impressed with how you have stayed on top of improvements over the last few months.

I program in Dreamweaver and MySql and have developed fully integrated dynamic web sites for many years. Mark Fail has gone over the top with these themes. Hopefully I won't be in another situation where I have to program a site from scratch. Mark's work has me pretty confident that I won't have to. He has anticipated so much in his power packed, intuitive, themes. They are ready for prime time commercial use. I have many web sites planned for all his themes. I purchased his whole package of all his themes. What a deal. Maybe I can have a life away from behind a computer screen. Of course for us computer junkies, maybe it just means we can do many, many, more web sites with our life behind the computer screen. Either way, thank you Mark Fail!

Building a directory site is no small task and neither is selecting the right software/script for the job. After looking at every available option on the market, DirectoryPress was the clear winner. It allows you to get a professional looking directory (in any niche!) up and running in a matter of days instead of weeks or months. Less development time means more time for marketing and selling. I highly recommend DirectoryPress regardless of your skill level in site development. DirectoryPress simply makes a difficult job easy and it has all the features you would want for your next directory.

I searched all over the internet for a directory script that would be easy to use. I am so glad I found DirectoryPress as it has eased a lot of headaches.

I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to PremiumPress.

With one of their products, I have created a whole directory website, using DirectoryPress in under a few hours.

The features of this theme alone, are incredible and very straight forward. After using WordPress for a couple of years, I can honestly say I've never seen a theme which such attention to detail, providing a unique user experience.

Because of DirectoryPress I now have a unique, professional looking directory website.

I can only say thank you, for making my website directory experience a pleasure.

There is no doubt in my mind, that I will continue using PremiumPress for many years to come.

We're quite the fan of DirectoryPress; not only for it's extensive feature list, but also for its continuous updates and fast ticketed support!

Directory Press is already by far, the BEST directory script we've ever cross come; and with each new update, its competition gets left further and further by behind.

When I first installed Directory Press, apparently it was missing a critical file, which I wasn't aware of. So I sent out an S.O.S. to Mark on a Saturday night and he answered immediately, troubleshot the problem, basically installed it for me, and I was up and running in no time. The customer support is as good as the product itself!

Clicking on category links leads to a blank page and cant figure out how to change this. Would also be nice to change icons for each directory listing.

I love the software and look forward to using it to build my business.

It took a while to go through each aspect of this extensive theme - BUT then fantastic. It would have cost me £1000,s to get a web company to design a similar website. I am excited!!!... My 1st 40 businesses were willing to pay £30 per month to list their company. WOW £1,200 profit per month just to start. The great thing is I have complete control of the SEO too. And, each page or listing can be optimised. Regards, Brian

Thank you for making your products available to people like me. I am setting up a building directory in Sydney Australia and found, through much research, that your product was best for my needs.

My customer simply want a summary of businesses with introductions and contact details. They then want a link to the websites. They don't want to know what's new etc.

I am in the middle of setting up all the features and fine tuning to my needs. I will update my progress closer to getting my new directory online.

PremiumPress has been everything I've asked for in a Wordpress Developing Theme. I've seen this theme grow so much in the past year that it keeps me inspired to keep up with my own site. As a graphic designer, this site has given me the flexibility to layout my own concept without hindering the backbone of the theme. It's an absolute wonder to play around with and I highly recommend it to those who are looking to start a directory site.
