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.

Can you provide updated xml files for the theme’s content and slider?

The files available on your website are outdated.

I’ve reached out via the contact form on bonsaished.com several weeks back regarding this, and have yet to receive a response.

With the lack of support for the previous comments here, and the fact I haven’t received a response through your specified support channel, I’m hoping this theme hasn’t been abandoned by the author.

Amazing theme, I’ve been working with real estate themes for the past 3 years and after thoroughly exploring the theme, I and you will find out Estatement is definitely the best out of the box.


I’ve been waiting all day for a solution since I was told today It was going to get fixed. I really need the layout of the Website working well. Please let me know when you can. I have all plugins disabled and still don’t work. Thank you.


My site doesn’t display correctly..the menu bar moves to the right sometimes and the logo keeps coming down. Also, the cards don’t display well..the third one is only too high and I have the same number of characteristics on each property so they have the same high..I’ve been having major issues with the display of the site since I purchased it..It doesn’t display well and I’ve disabled all plugins..Also, the search won’t filter properties correctly..

Hello, I bought the theme months ago after reading here that a major update would be released shortly (with front-end submission). As this hasn’t been the case, I would like to request a refund (theme hasn’t been used at all). How should I go about doing this?

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 portorooms,

Thanks for your detailed suggestions, we really appreciate that you took the time to write to us! I agree with ALL your feature additions :) we are working on front-end submission as we speak (ok, right now we’re on vacation :), we should be ready in 1-2 weeks. We’ve been working hard on it and it will be full front end implementation, not just a link to the regular WP backend. We also hope to add payment gateways so agents can be charged for listing their properties.

We will definitely get to all your suggestions, however, we have a policy which prevents us from doing too much at once. We either implement a feature 100% or not at all. This ensures that everyone who buys the theme knows exactly what they’re getting :)

Whenever someone makes a booking it is still ‘pending review’ it is shown as booked on the frontend, but only to make sure double bookings dont happen.

Thanks again for all our suggestions, if you want to talk in person about anything or you need some help you can drop us a line in our profile on themeforest or our website.


I am working with a property management company that would like to expand their existing site to include the following: 1. property listings 2. the ability for multiple agents to add properties but admin must approve before the property posts to the site 3. mailchimp integration with the property database to avoid inserting property data twice. How many of these items are covered by your theme? I’ve been trying to find plug ins that would meet his needs but now I am wondering if these theme may be the best option.

Also how flexible is the homepage set up? The set up on the demo site is very focused on listings and my client would like more of a corporate homepage focused on his business – slider, homeboxes with content, etc.

Thank you!


Hi mgould,

Thanks for the interest in the theme :) It looks like you will definitely need to do some custom work, whichever theme you buy. Here’s what Estatement can do:

1) Property listings are possible, this is basically the main focus of the theme so it shouldn’t be an issue.

2) This is already possible, but we are coming along with front-end submission in the next 1-2 weeks which will cover this better. Right now you can do this via the WordPress interface with authors/admins as you would do for blog posts. Authors have the ability to add, but not to publish. Front end submission will bring all this to the front end, it will look and function better, but it can already be done in a sub-optimal way.

3) For mailchimp you will definitely need to do some custom work. I think we tested the theme with the simple mailchimp form plugin and it works fine, but for anything tied to the posts/properties you will need to do some programming for sure. We are not available for custom work but we’re here if your programmers need guidance or some help.

4) The home page setup is extremely flexible. Any page that you see on the demo can be made the front page. Also, it is built out of shortcodes and simple content, so you can put anything on there. Listings, maps, text. images, videos and so on. The columns are shortcodes as well so you can define how you want to put things into columns as well.

Let me know if you have any more questions!


I bought this theme last summer and was excited to use it. Unfortunately, the filtering feature, which was one of the main reasons I bought the theme, never worked for me. I’ve been waiting months and months now for a fix or for the new update, much to no avail. So after tons of customization and a long period of waiting for promised updates, I’m sad to say that I have to switch to another theme. I simply can’t have my consumers unable to use the features of a website that I have long ago promised and been unable to deliver.Good luck in the future, and I wish others success, but unfortunately for me it has been a loss of time and money.


My client would like the images for each property / in the property slider to open in a fancybox.

the images have been loaded through the system and are added in the bottom section, where you add the slider id´s

please can you explain how to make the sliders open in a fancybox.. been trying, added some plugins but not opening in fancybox.. just uses the same slider.

Images in the slider here = http://marbellaskol.com/Property/fantastic-town-house-old-town-marbella-rent/

Kind regards

Hello I have been trying to show 2 separate pages with properties for sale on one and properties for rent on another. this is what i have now.

FOR RENT = http://marbellaskol.com/for-rent/ with this shortcode = [propertylist count=’5’ layout=’list’]

does not state the property category

FOR SALE http://marbellaskol.com/for-sale/ shortcode = [propertylist layout=’list’ count=’5’ ]

please can you tell me what shortcode is needed to show for rent on one page and for sale on other..

Many Thanks,


Hello Daniel, its been fixed, thanks,


Hi There,

I’m glad it is fixed and Im so sorry for not answering you here, to be honest we completely forgot about the comments section on themeforest – a side effect of our vacation :)

Hello, I’ve been installed your theme and I’m trying to upload xml demo content file with import tool but it doesn’t work. Is this right or not ?

Hi, that’s true, I’ve imported xml without images and with keeping users and its works fine like this. Thanks for your e-mail. Cheers. Philippe

Pre-Sale question – Do you have IDX support?


Hi socialelementonline ,

The dsIDXPress plugin DOES work out of the box, but it looks less than great. I’ve been talking with them on the phone to figure out a good solution but it looks like for now we’ll just have better CSS support.

We’re making the listings look good by next week, we’ll have an update out shortly. Until then you can take a look at what’s possible with this plugin by going to their website and getting a free trial. You can use the plugin on Twentyeleven or any other properly coded theme.

Let me know if you have any more questions,


about the Full Page Search. Is it possibile to have an homepage with “Mid Page Search”, something like airbnb.com?


Hi Maucast,

We did have this in mind when we made the theme but we never got around to implementing it. I’ve added it to our list of ideas for version 1.1.

Thanks so much for contributing, our plan is to make this the perfect theme for our buyers and we welcome any suggestion and criticism!


Hi again :)

Both the mid page search on map and the extended search with the slider background has been implemented in version 1.3 :)


you can insert a reservations manager?


No problem, thanks for the feature request! I’ll drop you a line in this comment when the feature has been added. If you’d like a notification via email about this drop us a line either via our own contact form, or the contact form in our profile here :)


The theme is good but I’ve had issues with a 0 next to the price that me or Daniel can’t remove. This theme is supposed to be responsive but my tables are not. I bought Estatement 3 months ago and still haven’t been able to use it. How can I rate this theme? I couldn’t under buyer rating. Thank you!


I did..please let me know when it’s fixed. Last time you said it was best for me to wait for the new version, but I would appreciate if you could fix it since I don’t know when the new version will be ready and I’ve been waiting for 3 months already. 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.


Thank you oman112 :)

We definitely do help out with anything we can and for the past two weeks we’ve updated about every 3 days on average :) We indeed encourage all feedback, especially criticisms because it helps us develop a theme better suited to our buyers.

I’m glad that you chose Estatement in the end, we’ll be here to help for a long while :)


Hi, I’ve installed the theme, how do I load the demo data so the site looks like the template on here? Thanks


Hmm, Could you drop me an email with an admin login? I’m sure it’s a settings issue but it’s difficult to figure out from here :) I’ll go in and take a look :)

I’m quite sure this is not a bug, but if it is, I’ll fix it and send you an update via email :)


I’m sorry, but I’m so disappointed to come on here and see that yet again the update isn’t ready. I’ve put off a client for more than two months now because I was told to “wait” – that the newer version was going to be so much better and different. Not happy…I hope it’s out soon.

Any plans to integrate IDX data?


So far I’ve been in contact with Spark. I am new to this myself, so if you have any suggestions do let me know! We’ll be updating regularly, the first one will be in a couple of days with maps integration. IDX/MLS stuff will definitely be a few weeks, I need to dig into it so I can implement it properly :)

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.


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!



Great, thanks so much! If you like the theme please consider rating the theme, it helps a lot :)

If you need any help setting up let me know! You can ask here as well but the best way is to get in touch via email using the contact form on our profile or our contact form.

The best theme i’ve bought !!!

Just some question…

1- how can i insert a gallery photo (properties page) as your demo. I big picture with the thumbnails below ?

2- Is it possible that the agent can create themself their account and can insert their properties ?

3- I use your search page tempalte. But when i try, he doesn’t found the result and try to find the result in the post page and not in the properties page…

Tank you



Hi microb14,

Here are some answers for you :)

1) There are a number of galleries on that page. In the gallery on the top of the page all you need to do is upload media. For other galleries you need to use shortcodes, take a look at the documentation which came with the theme for more info on this.

2) While this IS possible, this will only be useful with the front end submission update. You can use all the usual WordPress features to let people create their own properties but we’ll be building the front-end stuff soon which will be a much better workflow for people.

3) I think I answered this in the last thread, all you’ll need to do is create a “Property List” page and select it as the results page for the search page.

Let me know if you need more help,


Hello Daniel.

I am working away on the theme, but i have just noticed that the slideshow is not showing with most browsers.. it just gives a spinning black circle…

Have checked with Firefox, and this seems to be working on my computer..

but i do not see the slider in google chrome, nor safari. or Opera

My client tells me that the menu is all bunched up in internet explorer and also no slideshow.. this was also hppening with iphone..


Please could you check this.. Kind Regards


Hello Daniel.

Regarding the slider, The images have been changed.. here is one of them online.. http://marbellaskol.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/marbella-skol-beach-apartments.jpg

I see them here in the backend, but they do not show when live…

Why can’t I access your website :( And where are these vimeo videos.? I want to know more about this theme. Im ready to buy.


Hi There,

I’m not sure, the demo content should be right here: http://estatement.bonsaished.com/ There are two sets of videos at the moment. There is one video which depicts the current theme: https://vimeo.com/64633677/ We also have a new theme in the work which has been sent to beta testers. We’ve created tutorial videos which show off the new version here: https://vimeo.com/album/2781482

This version is not yet available though. If you purchase now and drop us a line via the contact form we can send it to you, but be aware that it’s still a beta version :)

Let me know if you have any more questions,


What’s the status on the major theme update. Been waiting almost 6 months now :(

Is there a way when viewing each property’s details page, to have a set layout of the featured image, the textual content, the map, then gallery, etc. rather than having to put shortcodes (i.e. [map height=200px]) into each property page?


Hi scrivostyle,

Sorry, this is not possible right now. I’ve added this to our feature list as I think this would be a nice feature though!



Hi scrivostyle,

No problem :) I recommend creating a child theme, we have a tutorial here if you need it.

The place too make this happen would be the layout-property.php file. You can add shortcodes in the file by using

<?php echo do_shortcode( '[map height="200px"']' ) ?>

You can add this above or under the content to make sure it’s used on every page.



No worries, let me know if you need anything else! You can also get in touch via email if you drop us a line via our own contact form or the one on our profile here :)

Thanks for the purchase!


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!


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,

Could there be an issue with the print button? It doesn’t work on my site.



Hi Daelom,

Indeed there is, the third party service it relies on has not been working very well. We are coming out with a new version where printing has been improved a lot, hopefully this will help!


taerese Purchased

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


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! Sorry to bother you again, but i have an issue with booking page. I created a booking page with booking layout. I have linke that page on the booking widget for a property. When i click on book now, it brings me to the booking page but its totally empty…


That is interesting indeed! Could you try going to settings->permalinks and just saving that page and then trying again? If it continues to not work can you drop me a line via our contact form? I will need an admin login and it’s probably not a good idea to paste that in here :)

Hi Daniel

I ve been looking to do the full width slider you have on the home page for the demo and found this previously answered to expansionfactor

Hi There,

I think all you’ll need to do is to go to settings->reading and select the “home” page to be your static homepage. We’ve just modified our demo site so you might need to change some things.

If you want to get the exact same slider you’ll need to buy Layer Slider from codecanyon and set it up. This slider does not have an export setting and the image we use are licensed so we can’t share them, sorry.


further down you mention RoyalSlider too, which one is the one you have on the home page of the demo shown here http://bonsaished.com/estatement/?

now, I think I might ve made a booboo as I cant find the home page under settings>reading, what do i do if i deleted it?

bear in mind i have about 60 properties uploaded so far and i wouldnt want to do anything that would get them erased ;)

Also im not quite sure what im doing wrong with the booking page to get a property to be bookable,i ve put in the paypal email,prices,got the calendar and book now widget showing up but once the dates and guests are selected the price remains zero and if I click on submit booking, it takes me to the booking page for the total price to remain zero and when I click on final review I get an error page, any idea what i ve done wrong?

many thanks J


Hi jem3232,

We use Layer Slider ourselves, I find it much more customizable :) If you deleted the page it’s a bit difficult to get it back because we only have full-content import files. Have you tried looking in the trash?

The home page is basically just content and shortcodes, we used the propertylist shortcode to pull some properties, take a look at the documentation for more info on that.

Once the slider is created you just need to paste the shortcode into the option box in the page settings :)

It’s a bit difficult to troubleshoot a page from here, could you send me a URL to it? Also, if you use our Contact Form to get in touch with me directly via email and we can continue there :)


Hi. Your theme will work with Cyrillic fonts?


Hi there,

Nice Another World avatar :) Yes, the theme should work with Cyrillic fonts. I think I’ve seen a Russian version somewhere and I know I saw greek and arabic so this should not be a problem :)



No problem, that’s what we’re here for :)

”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.


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.


Hi sjohnsonpcs,

I agree with you an all counts except the “swept under the rug”. i personally purchased the slider on the spot for the first person to mention this, and we bought the extended license a day after. While we did not mean the response to be condescending I see why it might have been taken as such, we will be more careful in the future.

Your website is looking great, I hope you are enjoying the pic of our dog above “Bonsai Shed Mascot Dog” :)

hi daniel!

i have another question.

When i look the site (live filtering: http://themeforest.net/item/estatement-powerful-real-estate-management/full_screen_preview/4522669) with my smartphone, the filter is shown on the bottom of the side. Is it possible – to show the filter on the top? Above the properties?

Do you know a good plugin for printing the detail site? the integrated plugin doesn’t show the pictures and the sidebar? It would be perfect, when i can print the detail site with every content on the site.

best regards and thank you for your perfect work!


Hi hscom1,

We’re on vacation until Monday so I won’t be able to help you a lot, I will get back to you on Monday. If it is not possible to put the filter on top, it should be, we can definitely add this feature for you, ill have more info on this next week.

Also, i am aware that the printing api we use is not great. I can not research plugins for you from here, but i will take a look when I can. Also, i will overhaul our own printing soon.

Could i ask you to send us a message via our profile, or our website. That way we can contact you via email and we’ll be sure to remember :) if you could copy paste your message from above that would be great!

Sorry for the inconvenience but we’re almost shut out from the world until Monday :)

hi daniel! I’ve sent you the question via your website contact form… thank you!

I am looking at real estate theme. I would like to clarify some points below:
1) Backward compatible. Every upgrade of wordpress or your software will not cause my website to be down or not working.
2) Create/define customized fields that is mandatory for a specific group of property?
a. For example: I would like Number of Bedroom to be compulsory for all residential property but not non-residential property
b. For non-residential property like office space, the system will allow me to key in field without asking me for number of bedroom. The bedroom fields must not appear in the first place.
3) The system will dynamically display appropriate search query. For example, If I am search for office space, the system will not have display bedroom in my search query
4) Can I display my home page with different feature listings. Feature listing for a set of residential property, Feature listing for a set of office space for rent….
5) If I display my listing, can I choose what fields to display? Residential property displays bedroom but not office space.
6) There may be more than 1 users using the website. Is this possible for your product.


I’m so sorry for the long wait on this one, we completely missed this comment! Here are some answers:

1) I can’t promise WordPress updates 100% but so far this has not been an issue. The biggest issue we’ve had with WordPress upgrades is an icon in the admin not showing up. These are resolved promptly. Upgrades to our theme will definitely not break your site.

2) Do you mean that you would like some fields in the admin to be required and some option? This is something that is not available in the theme at the moment.

3) This is half-possible. If you don’t add the number of bedrooms to an office it won’t show up anywhere, so yes, this will work.

4) Yep, this is available via shortcodes

5) Yes

6) Yes, but this relies on usual WordPress settings. So admins can edit anything, authors can only edit their own stuff and so on.

Hope this helps,


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.


Daniel, I would be interested in keeping and working with the theme, if I can get the plugin and license and also support for the theme. I can wait for 48 hours (I will inform my client), I will check back in on Monday morning for the updated theme. I am not trying to be condescending, but it would probably be best to make sure you answer the forum (paid users) before answering the posts on here. I hope you get caught up on your emails.

I will check back in on Monday.

Thanks for the quick response.


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!


Hello Daniel,

I liked the theme and want to start my real estate website with Estatement. Main reason for choosing the theme is the support you provide and simplicity of the product which makes it easier to use. I am new to website development and don’t have idea of how to go further. Can you please guide me from step one which I need to take in setting up my web? Your help will be appreciated, Thanks! :)


Hi itsankitm,

If this is your first time setting up a WordPress website I definitely recommend getting someone you know personally to help you.

Estatement is actually a bit more complex than most themes because of all the customization you can do. It’s not difficult if you’ve been working with WordPress for a while but it will definitely cause you to raise an eyebrow now and again if you haven’t done this kind of thing before.

I recommend taking a look at the default WordPress theme (twentythirteen), customizing a blog running that theme just for practice. I also recommend learning about shortcodes, page templates and posts and pages in general before you purchase the theme. This will help you out a lot in the beginning.

The WordPress Codex is a great place to start :)

Let me know if you need anything else,



Hi itsankitm,

I have absolutely no experience with WordPress.com so I can’t help you there :) I was a bit confused about this when I started out so just in case: Automattic is a company who makes WordPress which is 100% free, there is no such thing as a premium version or membership.

Automattic also owns WordPress.com which is a place to host your site. You basically pay for the hosting and services there. The website you get there runs WordPress as it’s content management system.

If you manage your website using WordPress.com I don’t quite know how it works. If you have a domain and WordPress installed on it without WordPress.com it will work fine. Paid themes work exactly like free themes, except you pay money for them.

Commonly (but not always) paid themes provide more advanced features and better support, this is essentially what you’re paying for here.

If you are able to install any freely available theme on your WordPress site you’ll be able to install Estatement (or other premium themes) for sure :)

Hope that helps!


Hi Daniel,

The theme looks great, I just have a few presale questions:

1.I see that you are planning a major update. Is it worth to purchase the theme now and start working on customizing it (only the css)? Will it be easy to upgrade it afterwards without having to do all the customization all over again?

2. What is the easiest way to import property listings from my current mysql database (and to keep importing new listings when I add them into my database, because I use a custom real estate software to do so)?

3. What plugin do you suggest to have the site manually translated into multiple languages?

Thanks, Kal


Hi Kal,

Thanks for your interest in the theme, here are some answers for you :)

We are actually recoding the theme from scratch so I do not recommend adding modifications now as some of our class names and structures might change. I can send you a preview version, but even that is about 2 weeks away. That said, if you will definitely buy the theme it will be worth buying in advance because you can learn how to use it , the main logic of how the custom fields work will not change.

There is a plugin which can import from csv which has been tested with the theme, i recommend that. It is called WP all import. It would also be worth setting that up in advance.

We fully support WPML to translate the theme to multiple languages.

My appologies for not including links, im restricted to my phone just now :) let me know if you need anything else :)


Hi ! Still waiting for front end submission )))) Could you include and facebook connect O:) Thanks .


Hi ionluka,

We’ve been on vacation until today, sorry for the late response :) We’re still working on it, but we’ll only release once it’s been 100% tested. I think it’s about 1-2 weeks away.

I’m not sure we’ll include Facebook connect in the first iteration, but we’ll keep it in mind!

Hello, I bought the theme ‘eStatement’. Honestly, one of the best I’ve purchased.

However, I have some questions and advice.

1 – To integrate the gallery, you’re talking to shortcode in which one must put ID. Would not it be possible options strcuture, you can insert images directly via the page without shortcode?

2 – In ‘ThemeForest comments’, you say 2 months ago, you’re going inétgrer multi-user frontend for agents and owner can insert their own property. When do you think this is possible? T we will go through the WordPress interface or registration and insert form will be directly in frontend?

3 – In the ‘properties template’ with the search form … no matter what I put in the form, I’m still not returned to a result or to a page blogpost page. If I take the advanced search option and I selected checkbox in custom field .. on the frontend, the checkbox does not appear.

4 – Property page (single) template: why not propose layouts tab without shortcode? And why not put the items in the sidebar on the page a bit like zillow.com or airbnb.com Example: https://www.airbnb.fr/rooms/649164

Thank you for reading me



Hi microb14,

I’m glad you like the theme :) Here are some answers for you :

1) This is already possible but to make a nice gallery (with a lightbox) we need to make it programmatic to make sure users don’t make any errors. You can use all the usual WordPress image-techniques to make galleries :)

2) This is coming quite close actually. We’re busy this week, but we’ll probably finish this feature sometime next week, or early the week after. You’ll be able to create multiple property submission forms and customize them completely :)

3) I think this is because you need to select a “Property List” page as a search result page.

4) We do not have a set format for these pages because many people want an AirBnB style layout, but many people don’t. With shortcodes you can achieve anything you want, so overall this seems to be the best way to go with the theme.

Let me know if you have any more questions :)

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!


Hey Daniel,

I read your comments on the idx plugin but I’d like to point out a plugin called dsidx. I’m not a rep for them but I’ve only found one other real estate theme that is idx ready (it’s on here called realia). I would LOVE to find others that are idx ready as we deal with a lot of real estate websites. For future if you cannot integrate that plugin to this theme please do another one soon! You will sell a lot more! Thanks for the hard work Daniel :)


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,



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 Paula,

Here are some answers for you:

1) Yep, we have stay length and guest based discounts. You can set the amount of days/guests after which the discount is applied. You can create multiple ones so you can have a weekly and monthly rate.

2) This is up to you :) I would actually use a custom field because that will allow you to sort by value in the admin and in the front end.

3) Yep, Front end submission will be available in the final release (it is not in the test version) or about a week after initial release. Unless you are enabling apartment owners to edit their properties, using the admin will be easier in the long run though :)

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?



Hi biky,

Thanks for your interest! Adding agents is current;y possible but you need to add them yourself and the functionality is limited. We do have front-end submission coming but we will definitely not support collecting the fees for the submissions, at least not for a while.

As for security. The theme is as secure as you can make a theme. A lot of the security involved in WordPress is server and user security. Implementing propert htaccess security (take a look here), making sure users are given the permissions they should have and so on. It is quite common for sites being “hacked” by people gaining access to the email accounts of admins through insecure passwords and so forth.

While I can say that the theme is coded with 100% WordPress standard code (including nonces and so on) there are two things you should be aware of. There is a myriad of other security issues you need to consider and also, if someone really wants to hack a site they probably can. This is rare, but nothing is 100% secure.


Just curious to know if there has been any advancement in adding spark as the listing service?


Hi, here is my suggestion : is it any way to make this theme adaptable to another types of estates like : parking spaces/garages/boxes, lands/fields, small businesses. To my knowledge all WP real estate themes deal only with housing. It would be nice to see a theme open to other types of real estate. Thanks !


Hi Daniel, I’ve another question : Would it be possible to implement geolocation ? Thanks !


Hi sheiber,

I don’t know what you mean by geolocation but here is what theme can already do: You can add the location of each property, either by entering the actual location details (city, state, street address, etc) or you can add latitude and longitude manually.

Based on this the properties can all be shown on one map and users can search for properties based on location and proximity (eg: 200 miles from Colorado Springs).

Let me know if you mean something else :)


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?



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 :)



Hi there,

I got quite a few messages today, I’m sure yours is among them. If I don’t reply to you within a few hours just drop me a line here but I’m sure I have it :)

What about update Daniel? Do you have exact time? We’re still waiting..



Sorry, there isn’t and won’t be an exact time. We were a bit stupid to commit to a date previously and we’re not going to make the mistake again!

That said, the test versions of the theme have been sent out to some buyers. Unless they come back with major issues, the theme will be out soon!
