The theme is great but the support is fantastic! Very happy with my purchase!

And that you are :) If some other authors on Themeforest provided half the support quality you do, this would be a very happy place. I spent 2 days on the theme and it really is a pleasure to work with. Rated 5 stars, for the quality of the template, as well as you attentiveness, it’s so rare nowadays ;) Wish you many, many sales :p

Thanks so much horizonq8!

We really believe that good support is everything. There are loads of extremely talented programmers and designers out there but for some reason good support is much fewer and far between.

We’re happy you are happy, good luck with your website :)

Hi, happy holiday. As you are aware, some of us have been waiting almost 6 months for the front end submission to be ready. With due respect, i would like you to give us the EXACT time this front end will be ready, it will be very unreasonable and irresponsible of you to tell us you do not have an exact date or time frame at this time and it would be immature to dodge this request.

I read in a comment where you mentioned second week in January and yet somewhere else you said you cannot guarantee it again. I am sure you are aware there would be holiday before making this gesture for second week in January. This is pretty unfair as you dont know how much this is affecting some of our businesses. Someone of us deal with several large project and we have time scale for everything we do. So, could you give us a time frame and let us hold you to your words BUT dont say soon again as soon is infinite.

Please show some respect to some of your 500+ customers who are actually waiting for the front end. I ask you to help us by releasing the front end in a reasonable time frame

Peace and happy new year!

bonsaished

Hi taerese,

I understand your frustration, but this is exactly why I can not give you a date. We are building something which is WAY beyond anything around and I can not sacrifice quality which is why I shouldn’t have mentioned a date at all in the first place.

Since the new year we’ve been pouring all our energy into it and it will be done in the close future, but I do not want to say when, I don’t want to put ourselves in the same situation twice.

If you’d like to know all the latest news I recommend dropping me a line via our contact form so I can sign you up for our newsletter.

a lot of features and i am very happy with my purchase. eta on wp 3.6 compatible? thanks again.

bonsaished

Hi inboxi!

We’re so glad you’re happy! We have front end submission on the way as well, so hopefully you’ll be getting even more features soon!

We’re on vacation until Monday, so we’ll make the theme officially 3.6 compatable that day. That said, as long as you have error reporting turned off, everything should work fine. All i am aware of is 1-2 depreciated functions. These still work, but show up as notices with WP_DEBUG turned on. We’ll clear it up as soon as we’re back!

Hi,

I don’t have the logo and menu issues anymore. It was a server problem. The new version fixed the cards problem, but the map is still not filtering well and the booking doesn’t work at all. It always shows 0. I need help with this issue. I know you said you were going on vacation today for 2 months and I don’t know who is going to fix this. I need this website to work in the Summer. Thank you.

For those of you considering buying estatement…DO IT! This theme is well developed and has a variety of applications…it is highly customizable. I am Wordpress novice, and Daniel has been there every step of the way to help me along. Critical feedback is encouraged, and new features seem to be added weekly…very refreshing.

I researched a lot themes that could be used for real estate and I settled on Estatement…so glad I did. I am very happy with the purchase.

Hello!

As I can see from the video, this theme has a very flexible custom fields support, so it can be used not only for real estate, right? I’m looking for a theme for a local business directory and none of other themes have such fast and flexible live search. Can you please confirm that it will be possible to use this theme for a business directory? Can I create different live search filters for different categories?

Thanks and happy holidays!

Hello, great, clean looking theme :) I have a couple of questions:

1. Will the front end submission be a proper frontend form, or is it like some other recent themes on themeforest that say frontend when they in fact mean limited backend? Prefer to ask as I’ve been fooled before ;) 2. Do you have an option to set property status – such as available, sold, under offer etc, in visually distinctive manner per property? Weather as another Featured like ribbon or any other form of banner? 3. Will frontend submission also include frontend editing/deleting/setting to draft as required? 4. Do you know how the theme reacts to woocommerce plugin? Are there any conflicts? 5. Is there pagination on the agent page? A lot of themes struggle with that, and when you start counting properties in 100s per agents it becomes practically un-browsable :p

Think that’s all, thanks for taking the time to read. Cheers and good luck with sales.

bonsaished

Hi horizonq8,

Thank you, and also for the questions, my goal is for you to get the theme you need, not necessarily our theme if it isn’t a match :)

1) Front end submission will be a proper frontend :) We already jabe the limited backend. If you would be ok with using the WordPress default login system you could make it work. I think that’s just shoddy work, so we don’t advertise that we have this feature :) We’ve built almost everything we need for this, except for the actual form so if you trust us with the purchase you’ll already be able to set most things up in preparation for this feature.

2) Regretfully no. You CAN add this as a custom field of course, and you can make this show up in the banner, but you can’t have the price in the main banner, and have another visual for the status. The banner can be set on a per property basis so you can have the price show up for all of them and when you sell one you can go to the property options and set the status field to be used in the banner. We have plans to add better banner customization support as well :)

3) Yes :) This is one of the reasons we are taking our sweet time adding this feature. We want it to be a proper feature, not just some quick thing so we can add it to our feature list :)

4) Regretfully I don’t know. However, the theme is coded with 100% WordPress standard code, so there shouldn’t be any issues. If there are, I’d be happy to correct them since WooCommerce is pretty big :)

5) I kind of don’t understand the question because I don’t see why this would be a difficult feature to implement :) Here is a screenshot from my local version: http://cl.ly/image/1Q3A0V3S3M29

Thanks for the questions, feel free to let me know if you need anything else!

Daniel

bonsaished

I am everywhere :) And I also have a notifier for new comments ;)

Hopefully Estatement can minimize your customisation needs but if you have very complex requirements you will definitely need to add modifications. If you need some small features let us know, if it makes sense for others we can try to build them in for you. No promises on that one but it’s worth an email :)

Yes you are correct, we’ve create a special “Agent” role. We will probably expand on this but the front end submission will definitely use user accounts. Would you prefer this any other way?

Yes, the theme is of course child theme capable :)

Daniel

Default-user

Great, that will make any modifications so much easier to follow through with updates. Also, glad Agents are a user role. Some themes have them set up as either custom post type or taxonomy and that creates a problem when trying to tie it up with ecommerce. My requirements aren’t massively complex, but somehow, there aren’t many themes out there that address that particular niche, essentially classfieds for real estate. The theme I use now, is designed for that, but does so rather poorly. As you are working on the frontend bit, that’s the biggest worry off my head. All i’ll need to do is set it up with WooCommerce to work with the front end submission and sort the listing status custom field in some sort of visually distinctive manner which shouldn’t be too hard even for a relative noob like me :p

Anyhow, thank you very much for answering my questions. Pretty sure I’ll be able to work around things that I need that aren’t there. Might bug you for some support every now and then, though I do understand it’s limited to what the theme actually offers, not necessarily all the things I’d like to do with it :p

Very nice! Lots of potential.

A word of caution that the phrase “property management” has special meaning in the United States both from a real estate and legal perspective as it specifically applies to property rentals NOT property sales.

The web design as displayed is more of a real estate sales design with no existing functionality for rentals inquires, leasing or back office management. However, as I already have a back office system I am looking forward to using this as a front end lead generation site.

I would be happy to give you some suggestions if you email me as I am a Lic Real Estate Broker, Instructor and IM’er.

Craig

I had open door, but now thinking to buy this only because of this advance search function, and request you to make search function even more powerful.

Since you already have booking system, can we please integrate to buy a listing package so either agent or private seller can choose free listing, bronze, or silver or different types of package based on features to list their property. Its like a paid subscription. Its good since you are already working on front end submission. Its like for sale by owner.

And also does it have an Australian functionality such as KM, Post code, AUD $....

Must have features: For Sale, For Rent, Sold and Open House

Thank you

bonsaished

Hi catmandus,

We are working on our front-end submission features at the moment, they will definitely not be available for another 2 weeks. In addition, I don’t know if we’ll be able to provide payment gateways for this right out of the box, at least not in the initial version. This all requires a hige system as is, and implementing different type of packages is another layer. We want to provide great functionality so we’ll start with a simple feature set first and make sure that works 100%. Once we’re happy we’ll keep adding to it.

So based on this, If this feature is a must for you, I do not suggest buying the theme for the moment. We’ll definitely get to where you need to go, but not in the short-term.

Also, all fields are completely custom so you can create your own stuff for everything, add different prefixes and suffixes to fields (for units of measurement, currency, etc).

Let me know if you have any other questions,

Daniel

bonsaished

Hi catmandus,

We’ll get a move on and we’re also adding new things all the time so I’m sure you’ll be happy with the theme :)

Hi Daniel, I have some difficulties to build the home page, I would like pretty much the same as your example with slideshow. My slideshow is created and works very well, when I selected a “slider page” into what I chose to be my homepage. Then I tried to create a new proprety, in “propreties” and It’s automatically shows on my home page? why? (I didn’t specify anything anywhere) Actually, I would like to show one of my propreties, exactly like the model just under the slideshow but it’s showing at the top on the page and my slideshow in the middle. Like a bug… and If I want to create more propreties I don’t want them to show on home page.. so, how to choose what I want to show in homepage? Hope you understand my question, actually I need to know how to create pretty much the same homepage as the example. ( slideshow (ok) / 1 proprety / 2 colom text / Thank you very much for your answer.

bonsaished

Hi Ferona,

I think the first issue is, please don’t use the “slider page”, that is actually some legacy code left in the theme. You can add a slider to any page using the page structure settings :) This is what is causing the slideshow bug :)

The reason properties show up on the home page is that you either have a property list page selected as the home page or you have a shortcode in the page content which is pulling in properties.

Hope this helps!

Daniel

Hey Daniel, Ok for slider page. thanks. It works.

But still, I don’t understand why propertie with “featured thing” (don’t know how you call this format..) shows up on the home page.

To explain: I did’nt select any property list page as the home page (Actually, I created a page called “home” and selected it in “home page” then chose “default model” and did’nt add any shortcode {exept the layerslide code in the “slider to use” part…) But when I created a new “properties” that ’s what I see in home page : (It is because it’s random maybe? each last properties show like this?) you can have a look: www.chasseur-immobilier-sologne.fr

Also, on the contrary, I would like to know what would be the shortcode if I would like to select one of my properties, to show like this. (I just want to understand and control this thing!)

I know the shortcode for “property list” like [propertylist count='3'] (like you mentionne in the documentation) but don’t know for the other one. (also I would like to delete “featured band” if it’s possible… )

To end, I noticed a bug for slider image with right and left Arrows. Is there a way to fix it..?

Thank you very much for your quick answer it’s very helpful ! Best support!

Hi, how can i change the Placeholder-TextField-Color in Contact-Forms? Thanks, Dominic

bonsaished

Hi There,

Styling placeholder text is not well supported in browsers so far so it is not possible to do this in the theme. You can read a bit about how to do it here.

The problem is that many systems (I think Contact Form 7 is one of them) uses Javascript to add placeholder text to fields. Since the classes of these texts varies widely we don’t have built in support for it.

If you can show me a URL where this is I’ll try and take a better look!

Hi Daniel, Thank you very much for your very quick answer! Right now i found a Plugin for the Contact Form 7. It calls «Contact Form 7 Form Skins» That works pretty good with the Theme: http://argentoag.ch/?page_id=27. Do You prefer another Contact Form Plugin for Wordpress? My CSS-Skills are not good :) Gruss Dominic

bonsaished

Hi There,

Ah ok, did it solve your issues?

I don’t really like any of the contact form plugins, but it’s not really their fault. It’s very difficult to make dynamic forms because of all the advanced issues involved. I quite like Visual Form Builder but that has some downsides as well :(

Hey Daniel!

I’m happy to say that we finally got around to purchasing your template and I’m digging into importing our portfolio with over 75 buildings and a 1000 suites with All Import. So far it’s going great, though, I’m bound to have questions. I know you’re on vacation, so whenever you can answer this is fine.

Some of our suites range from little executive suites around 150 SF to giant warehouses that are 150,000 SF. The range slider is simply too difficult to control with that large of a difference. Is there a way to make a range textbox search so the left box is equal to or greater and the right box is equal to or less? It’s not quite as slick as the slider, but it’d make it easier for customers looking in the smaller ranges. Thanks!

bonsaished

Why Thank You! There’s your comment from earlier, I don’t know why we didn’t see it! We were on vacation for a while, I’m sure I marked it as read by mistake :)

Thanks for the kind words, and talk to you soon via email :)

Pre-Sale question:

The front end search has ‘location’, ‘type’, ‘contract’ and ‘price’.

Is it easy to remove lets say contract and replace with a filter for the amount of bedrooms in the property?

Also does this work for UK maps/listings?

Thanks

Hi There,

Are you sure you purchased this theme? I received your license code via email and it is definitely invalid. You also don’t have a “purchased” badge in the comments here, which you should if you purchased it.

If you did indeed buy it but something seems to be wrong, please contact Envato directly, I have no control over sales issues :(

Hello,

I have a couple of questions about this theme: 1. Does it supports multiple user registration/login and adding of property listings? 2. Does it have featured/paid property listings?

Thanks, Alex

bonsaished

Hi Alex,

Multiple user registrations and adding of properties is possible, but it isn’t very convenient at this stage. It would require everyone to go through the WordPress admin. It works well enough, but I’m not sure it’s what you’re looking for. We are working on front-end submission which would allow users to register and add properties through the front end. This feature will also allow you to charge monthly or per listing.

To sum up, I don’t think Estatement will fit your needs, at least not this release. We’re working on these features though, if you’d like me to notify you when we’re done, drop me an email via our contact form in the profile section or on our website.

I have a few questions:

1. Property filter: Is it possible to order the filter checkboxes? At the moment the order is alphabetical…

2. Property filter: Is it possbile to change the background colour of the filter and of the search results? The boxes should be in grey not in white…

3. Details Button Is it possible to change the “Mouse over” colour from red to another colour?

4. Property Filter I tested the property filter with IE 8 – there are some problems – do you have a solution for this problems? Because I think IE 8 is very often in use….

Hi hscom1,

I don’t actually know because we don’t use the style.css file at all while developing, it is compiled from LESS. Take a look in styles/style.less. you’ll find all the style declarations in there.

You can use a tool like firebug to see what classes you need to modify on the website, then just search for those classes in the LESS file to see all the styles.

Hello there. I recently installed this theme and configured the recommended IDX Plugin, and it is working awesomely. But quick question. The Live Filtering: Is it possible to do live filtering with listings that were brought in through IDX/MLS?

Regretfully no :( This is a limitation of the plugin. We tried to word with dsIDXPress to make this happen but they were not very helpful.

There are new for the new version? I have clients little patients, I made promises that I have kept, I understand that you do not want to give a date, because you have not met for 3 times, but at least a month of release, you owe this to us.

Sorry about that, we’ve been (still are) struggling with the flu. While we are very close now, I will still not give a date due to the same reasons. I would rather you be angry at me because I refuse to give a date than because I give a date and then don’t make it.

Once we’re done with this update, which will be well worth the wait, we will not make this mistake again, new releases will not be announced at all :)

Couple issues/questions: 1. I have created custom icons for my map, but each time I go in and edit a property, it reverts back to the default map icon.

2. Is there a way to display listings in random order with the option to sort alphabetically? like on this page http://www.visitncwinecountry.com/wineries/

3. The detail boxes on the map (when you click an icon) don’t look very good. Can those be styled?

Hi there!

I’ve just purchased this theme and I’m a little bit dissapoint for three reasons:

1. Documentation is not very clear, it doesn’t even have the “first steps” to make the brand new install look like demo and customize from there.

2. Dummy data seems to be different from the presented in the demo, so I can’t get the same results, making it impossible to replicate it in another site. I’ve insalled the theme in two different hostings I’ve it all gets messy, I don’t have some options the theme has… etc. My wordpress version is 3.8.1 but as I said in point #1 there isn’t instructions on the first steps with the theme.

3. The links to the official suport directs to a website which is being migrated so I can’t have any help.

I choose this theme based on the raving reviews but now I’m a little bit disappointed. If their developers give me a hand maybe I can change my mind but it seems that I can’t get in touch with them for now :(

Cheers.

Potential customer here, as I’m sure you know, Google has rebuilt it’s maps service and has made the new Maps preview available to all users starting this week. It has interesting features but in my opinion it has slowed the response time down considerably. Have you looked into how the new Google maps will integrate with your theme? Or will the old/more simple Google maps API be available indefinitely?

Thanks! PS. your support/response to questions here is outstanding!

bonsaished

Hi arexcedian,

I had a quick look into this and there is very little above speculation about this right now. Since it is very new it is difficult to say what will happen.

I’m pretty sure that the new Google maps will not be “forced” any time soon. For the API I think the old maps will be used in v3 (the current one) and for the new one a v4 will be announced. Even if they announce this today, I presume it will take at least a year or more to shut down the old API entirely.

From what I’ve read, you CAN get the looks of the new maps into your maps using v3, but for now it’s an optional setting. We will offer this soon, but you will be able to switch it off.

In a nutshell, I think you don’t have to worry about the new maps being forced onto you for quite some time,

Hi Altaybek,

Sure, you’ll need to create a search page and in the search options make sure to give the search a fixed height. You can then configure the search as you like, and the and content below.

The search isn’t exactly like airbnb because we have one bar and then advanced options underneath, but it looks very similar.

I don’t quite understand the question, but you can change the type of field shown in searches in the search settings. You can make the price field a text field where the user can just enter the number. Does that help?

Hi there, First of all: nice theme, lots of possibilities and the UI looks very user friendly.

I got a pretty big problem though. I’ve added one property (text + featured image). I have made 2 custom fields and linked these to this property, just to test it.

Everything seemed OK, but when I want to view the property, I’m getting the folowing error:

“Oh No, a page is missing! It seems that you have stumbled on to some missing content. Try going back to the main page and give it another go.”

I’m getting an error as well when adding a search query that should lead to this property: “Your search yielded no results :( Go back to try another search”

I checked out what it could cause these errors, but coulnd’t find any issues. Could you please try to help me out here? Thanks in advance!

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your quick answer. The first part with the permalinks: solved :)

Second part, with the search results page: did not succeed yet. I created a test page called “search results” and made it “property list”. When looking at the page, I don’t see the property list, but the search-checkboxes I made under “Custom Fields”. And I I don’t see the search settings where I can select this page as search result page… Which search settings do you mean?

Hello! I’ve been buying some templates this last year from REAL ESTATE, some here at themeforest. Although there’s some things quite common between all of them, I leave some suggestions for future upgrades that this template could take advantage.

A) A lot of them don’t have front end submission and when it has it’s quite rare (found one) that the front end submission it’s not just back end acess to wordpress that makes a lot of confusion for some agents. It should be a front end like a form submission. I already saw some wordpress templates doing this. It would be perfect!

B) Agents should manage there email requests in the site instead of just getting the email. This gets a problem with booking as we can’t control if the agent books from other place after getting the email. It should be great as AIRBNB.COM does. Agents can exchange email with customers but never have acess to there email. So customers would always have to book from the site.

C) Real Estate are quite focus in BUYING and less in just RENTAL only. It should be given attention to manage different bedrooms in one advertise.

D) I didn’t got to find how it works the book calendar, can I see the dates it’s already booked? For different bedrooms?

E) Very Important. Leave the booking pended till agent confirm it’s still available or it becomes a caos. As this advertises some times are not updated by agents (or are in different sites at same time), we may be accepting a payment that’s already rented. If this goes with 100 advertises it becomes impossible to manage and to much time consuming.

I do think this template it’s still very good and above it’s just some user opinion that I do think it can improve the template, although some may be harder to do or not even profit enough to sell globally I don’t mean in ANY CASE to pull here for negative aspects.

I still suggest for my experience to purchase this template.

Hi!

I had a few questions about your theme. Aesthetically, I think it looks great! I’m curious about some of the features of the property management portion.

1) Does your system allow for child properties? For example, could I make an apartment or suite a child property of a complex or commercial building?

- If so, to what extent is the child/parent relationship extended? Can I decide whether it inherits things like pictures from the parent property, or possibly populating the parent property’s attributes it shares with its child properties?

2) If child properties don’t exist, is it possible to make a property non-searchable? My thought would be to create individual apartments or suites that are non-searchable, then just link to these properties from the complex or commercial building while filling in the attributes of the building manually.

Thank you for very much for your time.

Daniel,

No worries on the response time. Thank your for your informative and very helpful support.

I look forward to working with your team soon.

Hello,

is the theme fully WPML compatible?

I would also like to know if it is suitable for short term vacation rentals, separating houses, apartments and so on. And if it is possible to set up a search option with for example: Spain (country), Catalonia (province), Costa Brava (area) and town.

Thanks

bonsaished

Hi spain,

Yep, the theme is fully WPML compatible. You can also translate via the pot file in the languages folder if you prefer.

The search is completely customizable. As long as you create a custom field for province and area you will be able to create search fields for it :)

What IS a problem for short term renting is that we don’t have explicit support for rooms. You CAN get around this by creating a custom taxonomy named “House A” for example, and then assigning that taxonomy to each property you create (these would be the rooms). So if you have rooms for rent, as opposed to apartments, you will need to do a little more work, but it’s still possible easily :)

Let me know if you need anything else,

Daniel

Hi spain,

Availability calendars per property are available. You can also set seasonal rates which will change the rates in the given time period. We do not have a way of specifying weekend rates right now though. You could add seasonal rates for each weekend, but that would be very unwieldy with the current system. We’re a bit swamped right now so I can’t build this function in for you, but we might get to it at some point, thanks for the idea!

Hello, maybe its silly, but cant figure out, how to make map search to show your properties

bonsaished

Hi Altaybeck,

You’ll need to create a map page, this will display the properties. If you don’t see any properties please try filling out the coordinates for the property instead of the address. If it works with coordinates but does NOT work with only the address it is a server issue, you will need to ask your host to enable curl or file_get_contents() on your server.

Hi there,

This seems to be a stupid bug we left in, it occurs when you don’t have any taxonomies. We will fix this asap, until then if you create a taxonomy in custom data you should be a-ok :)

Feel free to drop us a line via our contact form and we can send you an update :)

Thanks very much Daniel. I just figured out how to use Taxonomies and started adding them so that should go away. :)

Hi Daniel,

Just purchase this theme but there’s an error when uploading to my wordpress website..I am using word press 3.9 version. Hope you can help in this eror.

Thanks

bonsaished

I think this may be a file size issue. In 99% of the cases this is not a problem, it seems like your server has a very low upload limit. If you ask your host they can increase if for you. I think the theme is somewhere in the 5MB region, if you ask them to increate it to 8-12MB you should be fine,

Daniel

bonsaished

Hi There,

I’m not sure what could be going on. We don’t have any reported installation issues, the theme will work with WP 3.5 and up for sure, including the new 3.9 version.

Are you using the installable file? When you download the theme you can grab the full package or the installable. You’ll need the installable theme with WordPress.

If it is giving you error messages it is definitely a server issue, or a plugin error. You could also try using FTP to upload the theme.

Hi Daniel, have a look at the email i sent you, my developer is having the problems below.

The issue we are facing is from the very beginning. When we first import the demo content xml file it failed to import. However as per your service provider mail we have uploaded the site to our anther server to check if this our server issue or not but it still the same. In the new server also the importing of the demo content file can’t be done. This is why it took us couple of days to check and to send our feedback. Please check the attached screenshot of the backend before and after importing the demo content file. I am hereby forwarding the WordPress backend details of the site. Please ask your service provider to check into this matter and let us know the problem .

bonsaished

Hi Ishmail14,

We’ll take a look at your issue in the next 24 hours. I am pretty sure our demo content is fine, it has been used more than 500 times successfully.

The import failure could still be a server issue if the upload limits and max execution time is low on your new server. Also, some import failures are not errors, they simply mean that you don’t have the same taxonomies set up. I’ll take a look and let you know what’s up.

Hi Daniel,

I m having trouble with making some of the properties bookable. I have updated to the new zip you send me but no luck. I also watched the video you sent out so im guessing we might end up with something closer to the airbnb look.. do you suggest i wait until you guys are finished or turn some of the properties bookable on this version?

Q1: if you re putting together the airbnb look, how long do you think its going to take before I can use it? Q2: if not, could you tell me what to do to allow for a property to be bookable on the current version..

Thanks Jen

bonsaished

Hi Jen,

I’m sure that the booking issue is either due to settings or perhaps a theme bug. Could you drop us an email like before, our email servers are now up and running so all should be well :)

I’m hesitant to give a time frame for the new version since we’ve received some rightful criticism about promising too early dates. Let’s talk via email :)

Daniel

Hi,

Well I have the same problem as jsenthil and I see he hasn’t been answered (perhaps way down the thread he was).

I watched the videos you provide. They are very informative and user friendly. Thanks for that. The problem is, I can’t actually follow the videos, because very few of the options shown in the video are available to me. It says that it “requires some plugins but they are all free”. Maybe, but good luck actually finding them. I searched everywhere for “Bonsai Directory” for example (seems VITAL to the theme) It is extremely difficult to find. I haven’t seen anything so far in any documentation that explains how to find it. I did FINALLY find a copy of it (on the author’s site)..but it doesn’t work (I had to read the readme file and find out that you need to edit the files etc just to get the plugin to install) I finally got it installed, but it won’t activate…so it’s about as good as a chocolate teapot.

Bonsai booking just doesn’t doesn’t seem to exist on the web. Likewise with the plugin that is actually NAMED ESTATEMENT plugin!!!

It says visual composer is licensed for use with this theme…but doesn’t explain how or where to get it nor how to license it for the theme)

I tried to follow the video to make a search page, but was quickly left behind once the author says, “If you select the search template option you will get a bunch of different options…”

NOPE. I won’t.

In the how to install Estatement video, it says that WP will say “This theme requires the following plugins…” That didn’t happen for me. It simply installed, I searched to try and find out manually which plugins I needed.

It has been a very rough start.

I tried to setup a support account by clicking on the link I received in my purchase confirmation email, but I couldn’t create an account because it requires a valid license code and , well, it says mine is invalid. (Cut and pasted from the email, and after that from the actual license I downloaded.)

It has been a very tiring and frustrating weekend at the computer. I accept that I am not particularly familiar with WP, but I do know how to use a computer and can certainly follow instructions and I do know how to watch videos telling me about all the cool things I can do with the theme after I put my money down.

I sure hope you guys can help me out with this. At this point my time would have been better spent customizing a free theme, as without the options described in the Bonsaished videos, this theme is no better than a free theme.

I must admit, I am a little nervous that you answered all the questions before and after jsenthil posted the same problem I have TWICE and seems to have been IGNORED TWICE.

I can’t help thinking (and hoping) that I just happened to have had bad luck and the theme version I received was only updated a few days ago…and they hadn’t realized that it doesn’t work and has many missing features and bad license codes. That would explain a lot.

The theme LOOKS great in the videos and live previews…I sure hope I can actually use the theme I bought from Bonsaished and create the site I was hoping for.

I would say to anyone that is considering buying this theme, don’t buy it until you see how this issue is resolved for jsenthil, myself and ayone else that is struggling with the same.

If it is a big mistake and a glitchy bugged lousy download file I got, I will be certain to acknowledge that in this forum after Envato and Bonsaished have rectified the situation.

Thanks for your time.

Default-user

I would like to acknowledge that with regards to the options not being available for the search page, they did eventually come up. I am not sure why, but there is a little glitch of sorts (at least in my download) but after refreshing and messing around with other things, suddenly, out of nowhere, the options like those shown in the video DO come up and the feature is very user friendly and attractive.

Perhaps this is just a tolerable bug. Once you know that you might not have an options panel for awhile but that it’s coming…it’s only a small nuisance.

I’ve been aroung here for quite a while and what I can say is that Daniel (bonsaished) provides THE best support I have ever seen.
Keep up the good work.
Looking forward for the next releases.

bonsaished

Thank you George :) We hope to keep you and everyone else happy for a long-long time :)

Hi, still really happy with the theme. However, for some reason our map page is not displaying any of our properties. I know their addresses are correct as the maps on each property page work great. Any idea?

Couple of pre-purchase questions: 1. Does the map feature have a geo location feature? Is that something you could add in the future if not? 2. I plan on using wp-all import to get around the stupid idx mls system. Do you foresee any issues with that plugin? 3. Can I build the property detail page to look different? Much like creating a template through a page builder or short codes, then set that template for all listings?

Thanks!

Default-user

ok, found the answer to #1 in the comments. Answer is yes :)

Another thing that would be great is a “favorites” or “wish list” for users with the ability to see their lists.

Also a matching search result email auto responder. So the user can subscribe to a search (3 bed,2 bath home in colorado springs) and be notified via email when a new listing appears.

Lead gathering is a very important part of being a real estate agent. We need to have a system that encourages buyers to sign in and search, save favorites, and get auto emails. As admins, we need to be able to see what the users are favoriting, their searches, and their contact info.

Great foundation to a site!

bonsaished

Hi natevolk,

Thanks for the interest in the theme :) To answer your remaining questions:

Due to another buyer I’ve already tested the theme with the WP All Import plugin and it works like a charm. I can give you some instructions you need to know befire uploading (how meta fields are named and so on), just drop me a line via email using our contact form and I’ll write it up for you :)

A template is not available but you can make the pages look a LOT different than on the demo, everything is done via content and shortcodes.

I’m with you on the favorites feature. We don’t have this and you’ll need to wait a bit until we do, we’re tied up with front-end submission at the moment. In about 2 weeks we’ll have full front-end prperty management for multiple agents :) Same goes for search subscription, it’s a great idea, we just need time to add all the great ideas :) we’ll go as fast as we can.

For the filter, it is pretty flexibly. You can choose weather a taxonomy filter (like the apartment type) is an “OR” or “AND” based filter. On the site we have an AND based filter so it will show properties which are in both. If you set it to be an “OR” based filter it will show properties in either one :)

Let me know if you have any more questions :)

ionluka has a Valid point here. It is very unfair of you to keep posting us unnecessarily when you knew the front end would not be ready. I can fetch from the comments how many times you mentioned 2wks, 3wks, 1wk, 5wks and so on. That is pretty unfair. Understandably we shouldnt quote you on your words but some of us bought your script in the pretence that it will be ready sooner, it might not be that 2wks you kept metioning but sooner. However, it seems that sooner will never come until sometimes in 2014. If your newsletters subscribers had told you they would rather wait then you should have been real with us all, rather than using the front end expectation as a marketing gimmicks.

As good as your script is i have decided to abandon it and use something else.

Please dont be mad at me for speaking the thruth and i hope you wont invalidate my license for speaking out either.

Finally, i wish to commend your good customer service skills and prompt response BUT keep it real

bonsaished

Hi Taerese,

You are both completely right on this matter, it is not a mistake we will make again! I am actually about to post a video on our progress. While it will still take us a bit of time to wrap up, I assure you it will be worth the wait :)

The issue with the newsletter subscribers was more of a miscommunication on my part. We had many of the new features ready about 3 weeks ago, but we wanted to rebuild the theme, which is when we asked our subscribers. So the quote of 3-5 weeks was actually for two different things. Regardless, we are late with it and you are right to be mad.

I don’t see why I would invalidate your license for speaking the truth, especially if you are right :) In addition, you bought a product, so the license is not mine to take away.

I will post a link to the progress video to you and ionluka so you can see where we’re heading. If you do not want to or can not wait, I understand if you go another way. If you will not be using Estatement, I suggest asking Envato for a refund. I think this would be fair in this case. Please tell them that the theme author is perfectly ok with this, I will be backing you up 100%.

If you have any questions feel free to let me know here or via our contact form. As always, we welcome constructive criticism and while we do make mistakes, we are working hard to rectify them.

Hello,

I’m really considering buying your theme as it seems to be the best fitting to my needs. Nevertheless I need to know before I buy some things: 1-Can I edit the front page so that it displays an area with properties and a lower area with blog posts? Or can I just display one type of posts in the front page? 2- Does this theme has: booking system reviews from guests different pricing for the properties (price per day/per week/per month) features as a list of items tabbed content map integration 3 -My website is multilanguage. I need to have it localized, do you know if it works with Polylang or is it better with Qtranslate 4- I want to use YOAST plugin. Do you know if it is compatible? 5 – I read here you are working on a upgrade that will come out soon. Will it be very different and will it still include these aspects? Thank you for your time,

Apulana

bonsaished

Hi There,

Thanks for your interest, and sorry for the long response time! Here are some answers for you:

1) You can configure the front page in any way you’d like. You can display properties via a shortcode and then have some posts, or some static content. You can also put things into columns and so on, it should be pretty flexible.

2) We do not have reviews at the moment, although you can use the comments for something similar. We do have different prices but a new version we’ll be publishing next week will expand on this a lot :)

3) We’ve actually only concentrated on WPML but to be honest I don’t really like this plugin at all. For the moment officially we only have WPML support, but I will try and add qtranslate support to the new version.

4) I’ve seen no incompatibility issues with YOAST so far :)

5) The update will include everything the theme has now, and much more. At its core it is a user-experience upgrade, the theme will be much easier to use and much more flexible. We’ll be adding plenty of booking options, better paypal integration and front-end submission :)

Hope this helps, let me know if you need anything else,

Hi – i am considering changing my current real estate theme because of the security issues. how secure is this theme?

i need a theme which allows agents to register there own properties for a fee. I understand agent adding will be coming – but I am concerned about security

Can you advise on the security as i have already been hacked and this is an important issue?

may be security plugins may help but what about the structure of the theme?

thanks

Default-user

Thanks Daniel, that’s very useful to know.

If I buy your theme 1) is there a security plugin that would compliment your theme to provide basic protection? there are a few out there. 2) could you recommend (but not support) a plugin for fee collection or a way of doing it?

bonsaished

Hi biky,

I am not aware of any plugins which do this (I am not that into the plugin market though). I did a quick search via Google and this plugin looks like it might work. Also, maybe there is something on codecanyon?

Let me know if you do/don’t find anything, I’ll have a think about it for you until then,

Daniel

I would recommend NOT purchasing this theme. I purchased the theme a couple days ago. The slider does not come with the theme (it is a for purchase only plugin), there are no instructions on getting started, and when the demo XML file is loaded the site does not look like the Live Preview/Demo site. I read through all 14 pages of the support forum website and have submitted two requests and neither has been answered, even though they state: “We provide 24 hours response times for support on weekdays – and we usually keep to this on weekends as well”. It was not a weekend when I submitted my initial request. I need this for a client. I will be requesting a refund from Theme Forest later today. It is too bad, as this theme looked very promising, but without the slider and support, it will not work as a solution for me or my clients.

bonsaished

Hi cubestudio,

We usually really ARE this quick :) I get notifications for comments here and my emails, but I don’t have notifications for the forum, I’ll have to get around to adding that!

if you drop me an email you won’t need to wait 48 hours, I can send it and provide support right now :) I CAN also look at your issues on the forum, but emails are usually much quicker.

I’m sorry for the negative experience you’ve had with us so far, it’s completely our fault, we hope to rectify it as soon as possible!

”While the way we worded it is widely understood by our buyers I appreciate that it is not clear. We have bought an extended license of the plugin so I will be sending you a copy via email right now.

Please note that this license allows you to use the plugin in the Estatement theme only”

I strongly disagree with this. You should get everything you need for the design included with the purchase. Your theme isn’t cheap. Based on the description, price, and live demo I assumed that the slider would be included with the demo, which is extremely common with wordpress themes. I’m glad I came across this ticket thread, or else I would still be pulling my hair out to figure out how to enable the beautiful slider you advertise on the live demo. To say ”the way we word it”… come on. The way to word it would be ”warning, layer slider license not included!” You shouldn’t include the slider in the live demo if it takes an additional purchase. You know you included the slider because it makes the theme beautiful, and without it, it’s rather bland and looks like every other theme on envato.

I thank you for providing the license for this plugin to the other users. I went ahead and purchased one for my copy of estatement. It’s a very nice slider, probably the best on the internet. I’m not asking for a refund for the theme because I’m so impressed with layer slider, I’ll be using it on every project in the future.

Please don’t condescend to people in the future. I really can’t stomach it when I see a customer have a legitimate concern and you try and sweep it under the rug. What about all of the people who purchased this theme who can’t get the slider to work who haven’t gone through past tickets? The slider is the first think people see on the homepage. It’s kind of a big deal to most designers.

/rant

I’m currently installing the theme and slider on http://callkelsey.com I think it will come out really well.

All and all, it’s a nice theme. Please include a slider with the purchase for future customers.
