“No Records Were Found” Error with Geodirectory | WordPress

Here’s a quick tip today for those of you using the Geodirectory WordPress plugin or on your website. If you are like me, you probably got the error:

This is what showed up for me when looking at the map on individual listings pages. Strangely, the plugin doesn’t seem to have a good starter guide, and even Googling this problem doesn’t immediately reveal the problem.

What’s the solution? You need to set your permalink structure to post name! Easy. For some reason, this is required for it to work. If you still have issues, you may also want to make sure you have a listing category set up in the plugin, and that your listings are actually assigned to a category.

I find the plugin (and theme) to work pretty well, but they really need better guides for it. Maybe there is one out there, but until Google fixes itself and stops showing me endless “30+ Best Directory Plugins for WordPress” results, there’s really no way to get any good information. Maybe I’ll do another post some other time about how Google is broken that way. But for now, let me know if this helped you or if you have any other questions about Geodirectory!

  1. Thanks.

    FYI: This is the stupidest thing I’ve come across in a plugin not providing the most basic of information for turning it’s own feature on.
