Directory website

In a directory website, visitors can submit free and premium ads. The ads are classified by categories, which buyers can view as a category tree. The site also includes a search and features the premium ads prominently.

Front-end forms have been created and connected with WooCommerce to allow end users to submit their ads and charge a fee when required. Nested views have been created to display ad categories in a tree. Another view is used to enable a flexible search.
