  • Images
  • Country

We explain everything in our BePro Listings csv upload documentation. With lots of documentation, this plugin is well established and easy to use.

DIRECTORY API

BePro Listings is designed to manage thousands of listings. Limitations are imposed by your server stats and wordpress. BePro Listings stores and retrieves your information in the most efficient way possible. It also integrates with wordpress for features you expect wordpress to handle like, title, description and images.

With our BePro Software API addon, you can communicate remotely with your BePro Listings installation via XML. Add, edit or delete listings remotely. This is ideal for scenarios where you are generating and/or storing directory content somewhere else e.g. google spreadsheet.

Its important to note that you must have a developer to make use of this API. It requires that a custom component is built to communicate with the API and your external application. What the BePro Software API solution offers, is the ability to initiate that remote communication. As you can imagine, interfacing with wordpress, BePro Listings and its addons is very difficult without an API.

CONCLUSION

For those building large directories and wondering if wordpress can do the job, you should consider BePro Listings. Its by far the most feature rich and efficient directory solution available for wordpress. Depending on your server setup, this wordpress plugin solution will handle the management of hundreds of thousands of listings.
