Step 3.Download a theme which is installed on my own link directory ‘Access Press Root‘.
Access Press Root is compatible with Another WordPress Classifieds Plugin (AWPCP) and work properly with this plugin.You can see here a demo of this theme and this plugin in the working form.
Setup Directory Plugin
After downloading AWPCP plugin, setup this plugin is the most important process because without setting up this plugin link directory won’t work.
So open its configuration page which you’ll see in the left menu panel on the WordPress dashboard.
- Open pages option from WordPress Dashboard, you can see few pages automatically created by this plugin.You can change name, link or heading according to your need.
- Change Page Name “AWPCP” to “Your Website names Directory”.For Examples “AWPCP” to “Ewebtip Directory”.
- Enter the Name of the different categories.Categories doesn’t mean blog post categories.
Go to AWPCP Configuration>>Categories>>Add categories
