Seeking guidance on building multisided directory
I’ve been browsing various directory plugins and BuddyPress options, but I am having difficulty determining the best course of action in building my site. I would greatly appreciate any feedback and advice you could lend me in this matter.
I would like to create a directory site in which there are two types of registered users (neither is charged to sign up).
The first user only has the ability to register strictly for privately messaging the second user type through BuddyPress.
The second user type has the ability to register by submitting a listing for their profile to appear in a searchable directory. I would like this user type’s registration to have custom form fields (BuddyPress extended profiles?). Geolocation is optional I suppose, provided that a custom field could substitute this if it is still a searchable option in the directory.
I intend on using X theme with the Ethos stack. I’m also looking for a way to display recently added directory profiles as featured posts (so they appear in the stack above navigation).
Please share your thoughts and suggestions!
