It would be great / valuable to have a directory plugin.   Having a directory plugin will allow businesses to submit their particulars (for a fee or free - a choice made my the admin), and it allows users to search for, e.g.  plumbers in Vancouver, Canada.    Is there an intention to build a directory plugin?

p.s. I've taken a peak at the Organizations plugin found on the Market page - the Organizations plugin wasn't meant to function some sort of directory, was it?

I've not a programmer but I've heard of,  if there are benefits of using this opensource database, will eventually switch over to using mariadb ?

As an Admin, running  the una script, I would like to add a function that allows my members to rate:

- businesses

- products 

- events

 - etc.

Aliexpress, for example, allows a buyer to use a '1-5 Star Rating' system to rate their transaction with a merchant. They have these questions that can be answer using their 1-5 Star Rating system.

How accurate was the product description?

How satisfied with the store’s service?  

How quickly did the store ship the item?

Similarly, Amazon uses a 1-5 Star Rating system.


The Admin, using the una script, can also set up their site  to allow / disallow Users' (members) to search for businesses, products, events, etc. by selecting Star Rating ranges between two number from 0-5 (e.g.   Search for businesses with Star ratings between _____(enter numeral or using drop down menu here)_____ and  ____(enter numeral or using drop down menu here)_________.

Of course, this '1-5 Star Rating' system will be calculated so Users' rating / voting on businesses, products, events, etc. will result in an accurate average.

Refer to the images, I have attached, re: Amazon's and Aliexpress' Star Rating system.

Thank you for considering my suggestion.

In my research about open-source databases I've come across references to:  MariaDB and PostgreSQL 

Will   una   eventually be programmed to take advantage of either or both:  MariaDB and PostgreSQL  ?

Database rankings:  db-engines  dot com

p.s. I'm not a programmer so I don't know if the above mentioned open-sourced databases are suitable for  una.

I'm not a programmer but every so often I like to search information on the latest programming languages... as a result, I have come across articles about the latest version of php:  php7.  And good things are written about php7. 

Is   una   written in php7?    If not, will  una   be written in php7 in the near future?

How to add "Location" as a search field for Organization page?   Does this feature exist?  If not, is this feature going to be added in the future?

Thanks in advanced for any support on this!

Will UNA have a News module in the future?

I've tried to add a New List titled:  Ethnicity  

in the Persons module and the system wouldn't allow me.  Refer to the attached image.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
