Premium Plugins To Extend Listable Functionality

Listable is offer­ing seam­less inte­gra­tion with many 3rd par­ty plu­g­ins, rather than to strict­ly impose and lim­it the func­tion­al­i­ty of the theme. This flex­i­bil­i­ty allows you to jug­gle with a great vari­ety of new ideas for your project, eas­i­ly mix­ing var­i­ous plu­g­ins to achieve your spe­cif­ic goals.

Besides this, if you don’t need some func­tion­al­i­ty you sim­ply don’t install that spe­cif­ic plu­g­in — this way you will keep your site clean­er, far from the like­ly bloat that comes pre-pack­aged with sim­i­lar prod­ucts.

All the core func­tion­al­i­ty of Listable is avail­able through free plu­g­ins, but if you need to go even fur­ther, we’ve come along with a curat­ed list of plu­g­ins from well-known and respect­ed authors.

These are all the Pre­mi­um Plu­g­ins (paid) used through­out our demo:

  • WP Job Man­ag­er – Book­marks (option­al): Add the option to book­mark list­ings.
  • WP Job Man­ag­er – Tags (option­al): Used to fine-grain your list­ings fil­ter­ing.
  • WP Job Man­ag­er – WooCom­merce Paid List­ings (option­al): Sell quan­ti­ty based list­ing pack­ages.
  • WooCom­merce Sub­scrip­tions (option­al): Sell sub­scrip­tion-based list­ing pack­ages.
  • WooCom­merce Book­ings (option­al): Offer reser­va­tions for cer­tain list­ings.
  • WP Job Man­ag­er – Prod­ucts (option­al): Dis­play reser­va­tions right on the list­ing page.
  • WP Job Man­ag­er – Claim List­ing (option­al): Allow busi­ness own­ers to claim their list­ings.
  • Search WP (option­al): Improve default Word­Press search sys­tem.
  • Auto Loca­tion (option­al): Improve the loca­tion field by adding an auto-sug­gests option.
  • Extend­ed Loca­tion (option­al): Allow the users choose where the busi­ness is locat­ed on the map.
  • CSS Hero (option­al): Beau­ti­ful­ly cus­tomize your web­site with­out writ­ing any line of code.

*Note that the theme doesn’t come bun­dled with any of these plu­g­ins. They are paid add-ons (option­al) that extend the site func­tion­al­i­ty — we’re only offer­ing a seam­less visu­al inter­face inte­gra­tion, while sup­port for each plu­g­in is offered by their authors.

Do I need those premium plugins?

They are not manda­to­ry for the theme — read their descrip­tion first and install only if you need that extra func­tion­al­i­ty.

Why are the plugins not bundled within the theme?

Besides their licens­es, there were numer­ous cas­es where bundling a plu­g­in was a very bad prac­tice — both in terms of secu­ri­ty and porta­bil­i­ty. You can read more about this sub­ject on WP Tav­ern or Enva­to Blog.


This article applies to Listable, as they share the same underlying structure.
