Business Page Defaults

In the Business Page Defaults box, change the following settings:

  • Default template: Choose a default template from the drop down menu. 
    • It is possible to build additional templates. To do this you need to:
      • Copy the directory called "cm_default" from cm-business-directory-pro/frontend/templates/ 
      • Paste it into wp-content/themes/<your_theme>/CMBD/ so you have a path that looks like this: wp-content/themes/twentysixteen/CMBD/cm_default/
      • Rename the template from "cm_default" to whatever you please
      • After creating your own template and a directory for it, the directory name will appear as a dropbox selection. Each template needs to include several files and follow the same directory structure as the default template.
