I plan to build a real estate site with my own custom post type helped with http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-post-type-ui/, or any other that can help me register Custom Posts Types on my Wordpress.
But I need the second part of the proccess and is to display those posts on the frontend.
What is the best way for a non-programmer to achieve this?
I imagine a plugin to showcase the Custom Post Types with the options to choose what taxonomies to display along the featured image in a dinamic grid list. Also, a way to display display accordingly the profile of evert post. In summary, a plugin or framework to build niche listings sites with no programming or very few knowledge.
A dream come true for many.
I tell my clients about frameworks and the benefits of it. I just don’t tell them that there are hundred of premade designs made and that cuts a lot of my work. Anyway, because of this, I can really focus on building the content and image editing, rather than spending countless hours on the inside code.
Why is not an option? Simply, because here in my country most of the clients wants the things very cheap and if I show them the source of the designs I might lose them. So cheap clients, that I’m sure some of them will tell some of their nephews to do it.
Anyway, I’ve told some of my best clients that they can choose whatever theme here. I also tell my fellow designers who still uses Dreamweaver or self-made html sites, that this site exists.
I also think that the template and the final result of the client, should always be very different. I always try to use the template only as a mere skeleton where I can sew the skin.
I hope someone finally builds the true “build it your self on wordpress” experience. Something very different and a more expanded approach to the current frameworks existing. Something for the very final user with no experience.
I build websites with Themeforest templates. I don’t say expressively to the clients I build the whole site by myself, but I think they suppose I build it from scratch.
Have you ever had that experience of a client asking you why another site is almost similar to his site?
What to answer for this kind of situation?
PSD: Telling upfront the client I use themeforest is not an option.
Is just that the user have been some time using his account. You can start uploading small 15 minutes videos, and soon Google, or to be more exact, YouTube, will let you upload long length videos. Just don’t infringe copyright or you won’t be able to upload longer videos anymore. Next time, google that question. There are plenty of info out there about this.
Oh, when I read the title, I thought the topic was about envato still letting abandon bugged items to be sold, without any luck of support because author disappearance. That’s stealing too… not so bad like warez, but some greedy attitude on this matter.
I was about to buy this theme http://themeforest.net/item/spotfinder-versatile-directory-listings-theme/5415589
Is on the most sellers in the WP section. It has been very successful, and now is gone or is temporary?
Thanks God I didn’t buy it!
Hello Erik, look this grid design www.wmagazine.com is amazing. Maybe you like it more. Is a custom theme so no one is selling it. You have to hire a professional developer if you want it. Peace.
ListingPress is the BOMB! for this, and the future releases are going to be even more awesome. Not related to it, just a big fan of this theme. Just read the comments sections to see what’s coming
