Anyone out there with experience developing a directory?

Hi Guys,
I am currently doing something for a niche market and I need suggestions on the best technology to deploy a very intuitive and mobile-friendly directory.

    You can rent well-experienced developers at ridiculous monthly rates from www.designpac.net

    Make sure every link added to your directory has a no follow tag or else black hat SEOs will spam and abuse the hell out of it.

      Thanks for this tip.

    There are many Wordpress plugins for easy directories to get started.

      I know there are a couple of wordpress plugins but I would like a recommendation from someone who has had some experience using or building one before. Can you make any recommendation?

        When I looked I found many themes that had this setup. But they didn't fit my needs as i was trying to build a site to showcase different profiles. For me it was less on the directory side where I didn't need lots of the extra stuff they threw in. Maps, addresses...

        I ended up using a Wordpress with Elementor to craft the pages and Metabox to handle all the custom types. Heard good things with "Advanced Custom Fields" (fields) and "Beaver Themer" (pages)

          Thanks for this insight.

          Do you have a link to the end product?
