GeoDirectory – Genesis Compatibility Pack


This plugin is no longer needed. GeoDirectory is now compatible with Genesis out of the box

With GeoDirectory plugin and the compatibility pack you can Turn your Genesis powered website into an interactive Business Directory!

Given the high number of requests for 100% compatibility with this theme layout, we decided to pack the necessary functions and css hacks in a simple plugin.

The plugin does a very simple thing. Through action hooks and filters, it removes the default html wrappers from GeoDirectory templates and adds Genesis html wrappers.

This make GeoDirectory pages display gracefully when used with Genesis.
