I have purchased and used this script and for the price, I would probably say that it can't be beat, BUT! They are very slow for responding to any support questions; and even when they do, it doesn't always work out. For example, the time out of the system is way to rapid. They made a suggestion of making a change in the php.ini file and that did nothing to alleviate the timeout problem. So what do I mean by a timeout problem? When going through the system and typing information into the system, it will time out - even though you were actively typing - and when you go to click on the update button, it comes up and says that you are not authorized; which you have been redirected to a page with this message - the page is the login page! This is a real pain in the "dairy-air" when you are trying to put in a lot of information. Just think about anyone who comes to the site and creates an account and this happens to them!?! Do you think that they will want to continue? This is especially true if you want to earn any money buy having them pay for any type of "supreme listing" service. I also did an upgrade, and since my one year of free upgrades was over, I had to purchase it. While the price was good, (btw - they try to get you to pay another $26 for a lifetime upgrade service) you have to click the selection arrow to pay for a one years, 2 year, 3 year, or lifetime upgrade package. If you do go to upgrade, you can run into problems. Even though the upgrade I did, looked like everything went fine, it didn't. Many of the areas did not transfer properly, links were lost, and could not easily be fixed - in fact, I wiped out the update and reinstalled and had to re-enter all the information. I did this because they were very slow at getting an answer to me, and I couldn't wait - I did wait a full 24 hours, but didn't like it, and felt that I couldn't wait any longer, so I reinstalled and re-entered all the information (very time consuming.) The one thing that would be nice - as it is nice in a more expensive php directory listing script - is being ablr to put it within an already running template. This one can do it, if you are a programmer and want to learn the entire system. I personally do not have the time, nor do I want to expand my programming abilities to do something like this, so I kept it to their template(s) that are provided. So in closing, I would say that this script may be worth it, if you want to have only a directory script, and you want to do the majority of the work. If you want something that is easier, and possibly be able to place within an already running site, then you might want to look at some of the other scripts.
