    Directorypress offers the most complete list of features even though Vantage looks like it could compete. GeoPlaces has messy code and is not truly localizable. We tried them all and only Directorypress could be changed the way we wanted to without coding BUT we had to do some CSS to make it look decent.

      DirectoryPress is decent. GeoPlaxces has gone through various changes. It has gotten a tad bit better. It was very messy early on though.
