    If you don't mind a bit of tinkering around to make things work how you want then phpmydirectory is decent and can be fully owned for about the price of a months subscription on those two:

    Directories are dead. What are you building?

    Apologies, my mistake.

    Having done some research it appears AirBnB is built on the edirectory platform you listed above so that would be my choice of software.

    Depending upon what you want, I can recommend you something, I would like to avoid eDirectory, that is expensive, slow, difficult to play with and hard to customize, not very suitable if you want to run it for country, it might work out if it is city specific.

    Do you want to run a Web Directory or something along the lines of Yelp?

    Oh, so no business directory must be allowed to succeed if I understand your logic.

    Why be so moronic and unhelpful on a general help post?

    Just for clarity, I am looking for some quite precise niches and potentially a couple of localities.

    Do you mind showing an example site of what you want? the directory softwares you showed contain too many features, classifieds, photos, videos, movies, coupons and what not. I like the idea of going Niche and Limited localities, it is easier to build and grow that way, for a full fledge Business/Geo portal this script can do a wonderful job http://www.longisland.com/ http://www.mybangalore.com/ powered by this http://www.blackmonk.com/ but mind it, it will require a lot of resource populating and managing.

    Thanks for this info, it looks like a very interesting product and I have requested a demo with them.

    I have a few nice domains I want to develop and a couple of existing sites, I'd like to move things to a more stable and reliable platform with a few more bells and whistles. Currently I like the look of eDirectory which has IoS and Android Apps available, these could be launched at a later date and help generate some good PR as well as adding a bit more kudos to the sites themselves.

    @Brilliant Directories, nice to offer but you're very late to the party, the last post above was 3 years ago :)

    @Brilliant Directories, thanks, I might take you up on that offer, as I've been considering making a site where users can advertise UK businesses for sale

    I was thinking about using ClassiPress directory for it as I already have a theme from them, but they look very basic, so I may give yours a go.

    Thanks Martin, doesn't sound to good, does it, probably best that I give that a miss and use something else, and preferably where I get to host it myself.

    You were pretty well slated on that thread @Brilliant Directories - and rightly so. I don't think you'll find many willing buyers here.
