About this collection…

Directory-style WordPress themes are somewhat unique in their application as a website.

Typically, they are designed to display listings or items in various ways – yet there are entire categories of this type of theme which can be grouped together in their own collections (e.g. real estate themes, classified themes, etc.).

Because of the huge abundance of these types of themes, I’ve tried to round up a selection of some of the very best for this collection – and ones that tend to be a little more generic and broad in their potential use and application (like a general business/listing site).

Here you will find some of the very best free and premium solutions for creating a listings/directory site.
