A Practical Wedding Vendor Directory
A Practical Wedding is a WordPress maintenance client of mine. As part of our partnership, I built them a custom vendor directory for wedding vendors. I created a custom directory plugin, paired with a custom theme for styling. It also integrates with 3rd party plugins and software like Woocommerce and Algolia for additional functionality.

The site is primarily focused around a CPT, vendor listings. The vendors are searchable by name, location, and category. The different categories are browsable as well.
Vendor listings are quite extensive. Information can be made available about the vendors’s bio, policies, cost, and contact information. There are also plenty of opportunities to add photo and video. In addition, users can leave reviews, which are also handled as a CPT.
Signup and Woocommerce Integration
Signups, payments, and subscriptions are all integrated or managed by the Woocommerce integration. Registration is done as part of a slightly extended checkout process. Recurring membership payments are handled with Woocommerce Subscriptions, which allowed me to automatically unpublish listings when a subscription is cancelled.
After checkout is completed, vendors can get to work editing their profiles. This area is self-contained on the frontend, integrated with the Woocommerce account area. In addition to editing their profile, users can also view reviews, and manage their subscriptions and payment information.
