    Does anyone have any themes or can suggests themes + plugins to turn wordpress into a niche directory?

    For instance, let's say you wanted a directory of all the coffee shops ro dress stores (or whatever) in new york city? How would you go about doing it?

    I appreciate your tips in advance....

    If you are serious about building a niche directory you should think about using Joomla instead of WP.

    Joomla and the SOBI 2 extension will give you all the features you could ever dream about.

    I agree with this. Joomla is a way better system for what you're talking about.

    Oh, and banannabee: thanks for the link :)

    why not use the article directory plugin for wordpress and have a custom skin based on your niche.
