Hi there, interested in buying this but I have a few questions… 1) is it possible to see an example of where a video about a helper would appear on their profile? 2) I’m looking for something that extends wider than just handyman jobs, So about 100 categories in all. Would the drop down tab of categories work for this?! 3) I need to demonstrate that my website is channeling business to the tradespeople who sign up to it. When prospective customers get in touch, will the helpers be aware that they have gone via this site? Can I collect stats on how many enquiries have been generated and to whom? Many thanks in advance! J

Hey there, there are some offensive comments being left on your theme, probably the spam filter isn’t activated. Look at “C & G Plastering”. Good luck with sales, great theme otherwise!

Hello, yesterday I bought a template Handyman. I installed the template, but have some problems with activation of some plugins. I can’t activate Reviewer plugin, it writes that my code is not valid. Also, I just have added a categories in the raw Enabled: http://prntscr.com/cjddfw , but it isnot working, as you can see: http://prntscr.com/cjddqy We have no field there, but we have saved the settings. So, the template is not working correctly and I cannot going on with my work(((
Please, help me with it.
June 12,2019
Hi Dan, is it possible to filter the resume search by service areas? The handymen select to which areas they come to do their work as they usually do not only work within their city, right? So when potential customers search for a handyman they can select their service area, not only their service category. Is this possible with any plugin? I thought of Geolocation plugin, but radius search is also not the best option, as some handyman travel only a few kilometers while others travel much further. Maybe Job Tags? Thanks in advance!
June 12,2019

June 12,2019

Hi Dan, this looks good, but just a couple of questions. 1) Do you allow for multiple locations? i.e. Can a handyman who’s prepared to travel put down for eg. Liverpool, Manchester & Leeds on his profile, and appear in the search results for each of those places?
June 05,2019
I am new to WordPress so I may sound silly, can you please explain what Resume Manager does and what will it add to the website if I purchase it?
