    I am trying the free version 1.5
    Everything went fine - install, create directories as I wanted, subdirectories as well etc.
    Downloaded and installed template (bluesearch), changed the logos etc.

    Everything works and looks fine except two issues or possible bugs.

    1) Main Search box is not working and when I enter search word i.e house I takes me to next page with two search option (doesn't show Total links either).

    I can use Advance search no problem (works fine).

    When I use different free template for v1.5, search works fine, but directory is all cramped up (some words override others and looks messy)

    So I am stuck with no option.

    Please advise.

    Hi Sergey,


    Thanks for looking in to it.

    I changed to other template so the search is working, but you will see the other mayor problem - some words override others.

    That happens in all the templates except bluesearch.

    See if if can fix this issue first.
    (that way I can choose any template)

    Yes, that was it. THANK YOU

    Having the same problem in the control panel browse categories:


    3 columns all cramped up. Need to make 2 columns or stretch it (make it longer).

    Looked everywhere for it - can't find it.


    (almost there)

    Just a note... :) Forget Free 1.5. Today a new version of our FREE software will be released - eSyndiCat v1.6 [OMEGA]. It's fantastic. You will be able to download it in few hours.

    Hi Simon,
    Omega installed - no problem (took 10 minutes).
    Looks VERY, VERY good. Congratulations! :good:

    Test at:

    Few questions:

    What templates can be run with this version?
    How to setup cron?
    How can I make my setup links from previous version (v1.5)
    Should I just change the v16_ to what I had before access_ in the install or should I do some kind of export/import via phpMyAdmin in the Cpanel?

    I took it for heavy test drive and the thing is flawless (so far).

    Nothing to report :)

    BTW: anything available to populate/prime my directory from Google?
  13. Vasily B.

    Vasily B. Administrator Staff Member

    Sounds more than just good :) Great... :)

    Please give us your ideas about populating directory from google... Personally I think it's not a good idea as Google denies connecting to it using automatic queries. :( It can penalize your site for this. We strongly recommend to use unique manually added content. Just create several categories and add 3-5 links in each. It would be much better if you have 100 categories with a populated content from Google.

    Few scripts offer that.
    The one I migrated from and others as well.
    (I can send you PM with URL if you like)

    It's a real time saver!!! You don't have to fetch 1000 links in 20 minutes, but rather do it responsibly.
    Personally, I think it's a must to have.
    Great pay addon to create and sell ($100 and more).

    If you had that in the PRO version you can charge much, much more.

    Even populating from Google or whatever is still a lot of work (approving, sending emails etc.)

    At least you don't have to chase links by hand. Trust me I had it.

    The developer of RM closed the site and my hosting screw the script when they changed to MySQL 5. So I moved and starting all over again.

    Ok George,
    We will think it over. If you have any specific request regarding this functionality please post this in our features request section. It would help us a lot as we would know what our customers need.

    Also from the Admin side when I try to create listing, I fill in all the blanks and hit ADD LISTING then it looks like it's working then the screen goes blank. I go back into the Admin side and it didn't create anything,
