The Vantage theme is a powerful directory theme that is very affordable. No need to spend thousands on a custom directory theme when we have the Vantage theme. On the homepage, the top bar is the menu bar and aligned to the right of this bar is your account login box or it’ll show your name if you are logged into the web directory. Keep in mind this is a WordPress theme that has been heavily customized. Under this bar, you can upload your image and to the right of this image is a place to put up a 468 banner ad. The real magic comes next which is the directory section. I will show you a few screenshots to show you how awesome this theme is.

This is not a Genesis Framework theme but is still a child theme. You can still customize this theme with plugins such as the ones WPOutcast is using or search through our WordPress Plugins category.
