The Business Finder WordPress Theme is an online directory portal theme by website design company, Theme Forest. But it should not be mistaken for the Directory Listing theme from the same company. Actually, the Business Finder theme is, in the words of its creators,’inspired’ by the Directory Listing Theme – which is another way of saying it is more like a revised, improved, Directory Listing Theme 2.o.
Which explains why the two themes are compatible. If you already have the Directory Listing theme, you can move your entire data to the Business Finder WordPress Theme without losing the design or other features. And, if you like, you can switch right back.
On the visual presentation side, the theme is modern and quite flexible. It comes with unlimited color options, different portfolio layouts, custom post types, custom widgets and 16+ of shortcodes. The signature feature here is the Revolution Slider with its stunning transition effects, image pre-loader, video embedding and autoplay.
