make their own improved version called….
Now… many of you will immediately recognize this theme as the GEOPlaces theme because honestly it looks great, but from a functional stand point however… it is full of bugs and a total nightmare to setup.

Well, GeoTheme has been independently improved and funded by wordpress
fans wanting a better local directory theme.
So… If you have a spare $85 and a bit of time this weekend you might
