Guys, if you are still sitting on the fence on this I urge you to purchase this theme right now.

The support provided by them is worldclass. I have paid much more for other software but the support is incomparable to the estatement team.

All my questions were responded within hours and the support team even added a new feature to the theme after I requested for it. After installing the new update, there were some issues which turned out to be due to my developer not setting it up properly. Nonetheless, they logged in to my site and fix the issue for me.

Now this is what I call commitment and awesome after sales service.

Thumbs up!!

Hello, here’s a suggestion I found browsing the theme from a mobile. In the “Live Search” page, the controls should be on the top and below the results. Because one’s have to reach the bottom of the page to see the controls. This is like upside down design. Don’t you think guys?

Thanks!

Hi netjmt,

We completely agree with you :) there is just so much to do we havent gotten around to doing it :) also, top navigation is not ideal either since you still have to scroll away from the results. We were thinking of a modal window. Or something similar on mobile devices.

Thanks for the suggestion, we will definitely make the filter better on mobile soon!

Daniel

Still no upgrade?

bonsaished

Sorry, we’re still working on it. We’ll be going on a long vacation soon and we didn’t want to release anything to make sure there aren’t loads of bugs. We are constantly updating the current version though!

Daniel

Easily worth the money – if I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would. Bonsaished and Daniel offer superb (and quick) support, and the theme is a breeze to work with! Can’t wait to see what other themes you guys put out there!

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

bonsaished

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!

Daniel

Hi guys. Couple of questions. Do you plan to add a “search radius” option? I mean, imagine a user in the street with her phone wanting to find available apartments for rent from around 1 km of her current location.

Also, a great feature I want to see, is the possibility that after the results are requested and shown, the new “live filtering” can be used, and not the static results as by now. I hope to be understood. Also, a fixed top menu option would be great as a new feature,

Thank you very much guys. Good work. : )

How does this theme differ from Red Factory’s Vacation Rental theme?

if i have understood this right. The guys behind this are somewhat the same, but in this theme they also give support.

But is this easier to use than Vacation Rental theme?

Hi guys, I want to buy this template, but I have a question before it. I don’t need the slider on the main page. Can I put there the map as on the http://estatement.bonsaished.com/quarter-page-map-search/? Thx, Kate

Hi,

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.

The live demo doesn’t load?

Hi there,

Looks ok to me now. We didn’t notice any outages today, but we do sometimes get 3-5 minutes of downtime for no apparent reason. Let me know if this is still an issue,

Daniel

I think everyone ready for new release :)

We’re waiting…

Thanks..

bonsaished

Hi There,

Yes, so are we :D We’re in the final phases but we’re a small company and we still don’t want to sacrifice quality for speed. In the meantime we are supporting the current version as usual :)

Daniel

Any news/ETA on the new front-end submission?

bonsaished

Hi arexcedian,

We’re still a while away as we’re developing a new theme. beside that we’re focusing on existing features on Estatement. Front-End submission IS coming, but we’d rather take our time and build it well than build it quick!

Can Range Slider be configured to include “0” in some way? I use it on custom details and if I set it to “0” it shows up blank in the range slider (and still remains blank after “sliding”)?

Hi.. I want to change my homepage to the quarter image so that I can display a list of properties as well as featured properties on the homepage. I have created a page called Homepage, then from my reading settings. I have it as static and front page as home. But its still showing the full background image, and non of the features I set above are showing.

Point: How do I attribute a specific image to the homepage?

Hi,

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

Thanks

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?

Nothing is working…my sliders do not work, my slideshow dont work, my tabs dont work….everything leads to the template and the jquery library….Can you please resolve this for me?...I cant keep working…I am stuck

the jquery needed to be updated. I reinstall everything and start from scratch since by the time it takes you guys 5 days to answer. By the way did I tell you that your customer service is the worst I have ever seen…the worst

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

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.

bonsaished

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 :)

This seem to me like you are taking the mickey out of people. It would be a strong word to call it fraud but I wont say so or not. I bought this theme over a year ago on the back of the promises that frontend would be ready soon… One year one, you are still saying soon while you still havent produce a front and given buyers false hope and reasons to buy your theme. This is totally unfair and bad business practice. If only I could transfer the theme to someone else, I would ask anyone of your prospective buyers to take mine for FREE cause it is not useful to me without the front end

Thanks for all the support. One last question for you. I don’t know why but when I add a new property, then add the location via address or latitude, longitude. Its still not showing up on the map. and of course I have the show on map clicked on, do you know what I could be missing?

Thanks!

Hello

+1 to have some screenshots of the new look & feel.

I am really interested to an homepage template like Trulia.com and Airbnb.com (quarter search page with slider in the background with some widgets below)

bonsaished

I don’t have some screenshots ready but if you can drop me a line via our contact form I’ll try and make some :)

We’re still working out some of the templates but all pages will be buildable using visual form builder so you will essentially be able to put anything anywhere :)

Hallo! For the test version it is much easier if you contact me via email, if you have any questions please reach out there. We’re still working on it, it’s a test version it will be ready when it’s ready, but we’re going as fast as we can!

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.

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.

bonsaished

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.

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!

Daniel

About how much time do you estimate it would take to setup 5 pages and IDX for Intermediate WP developer? With API, will properties automatically flow into the site. How are Featured Properties differentiated from Agency Properties? Different coding? Are property additions completely automated with IDX?

bonsaished

Hi Gebersole,

Regretfully IDX can not be integrated into the site on a database level at all. This is due to technical and cooperation issues with dsIDXPress. I have found another provider which is open to collaboration, but it will still be a while until we get there.

I recommend installing dsIDXPress on a vanilla twentytwelve theme. Anything it can do there, it can do in Estatement, but nothing more. If you want to use our maps, our live filters and so on, you will need to input your properties into WordPress, they can not be pulled from the IDX feed.

Daniel

I suppose it’s not possible to make a property page full width with no sidebar. I want visitors to not have to click twice to zoom into the big image on this page: http://witorque.com/tools/e-rad-pelican-cases/

I know I can make the sidebar blank, but it still keeps the content area narrow.

Thanks!

Hello,

I was thinking of purchasing your theme but wanted to ask a question first. Is it possible to have the agent pay per property they advertise on the website?

bonsaished

Hi wezc4’

Right now this is not possible, but we are working on front-end submission which should allow this. We’re still about 1-2 weeks away from adding this feature and i have no info about how payments will work, butnwe’re working on it.

I suggest NOT buyng the theme right now if this is a feature which is essential to you. You can drop us a line via our profile here or our website if you want us to shoot you an email when we know more :)

Hi Daniel,

after purchasing your theme I’m occupied with the first adaptions. Already I’ve the first questions:

1. It seems that the “logo-proplem” with Chrome and Safari isn’t fixed until now. After reading the posts about this problem I thought it’s solved. But the logo still comes down through the red line. And, very strange, it appears correctly when clicking on it to “go home”.

2. When I paste a “more-link” in a text it doesn’t act. What can I do?

Greetings and thanks in advance!

Michael

Beautiful awesome theme!

I have a few pre-buy questions!

Is there a chance this could work as, users upload there own properties and then they are approved by (only) an admin?

Are there any “dedicated” areas for advertising?

What about pure front-end submission?

thanks alot!

bonsaished

Hi wgmor,

Thank you :)

While you could make a system where users can upload their own stuff and it has to be approved, this would only work if they logged in to the WordPress admin.

We are working on front end submission at the moment which should make this problem go away. We are still a few weeks away, but hopefully we will be able to implement this in the not-too-distant future.

As for advertising, we don’t have dedicated areas but you can use any widget plugin, or use the simple text widget to add an advertisement anywhere in the sidebar.

Let me know if you have any more questions,

Daniel

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 ?

bonsaished

Hi There,

This can sometimes be caused by server settings. There are quite a lot of images to import. You might need to edit your php.ini file to allow for more execution time. A good way to test is to try and import without the attachments. if it works like that, you’ll need to modify your php.ini file.

I think you know my email now, so if it still doesn’t work just drop me a line and I’ll figure it out for you via email :)

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.

Hi Daniel,

I run a bunch of boarding houses so I’m renting rooms rather than whole houses.

1. How would you go about using this theme to advertise rooms available some of which may be in the same house. Each ‘property’ is a room that belongs to a category of for example, ‘House 1’ or ‘House 2’..?

2. I’m a developer also and have built my own admin system based in cakePHP. How easy would be to sync the information inside my system with the website database? a cron that updates the website database via SQL perhaps?

Thanks in advance

Jade.

bonsaished

Hi Jade,

Yep, I would definitely make the rooms the properties. You can then show pictures of the house or building for each room. You can create custom taxonomies so instead of category you could actually have “House” as a taxonomy.

If you are a developer then syncing is still an issue, I know from experience :) You need to figure out the datapoints, if the two systems are on different servers you might need to do some IP whitelisting and so on. It is certainly possible, our metadata follows quite strict guidelines. Every metadata created by the theme is prefixed with est and every custom field users can create is prefixed with est_meta.

Hope that helps!

Hi! Where can I change link colors?

bonsaished

I do not recommend changing the files of the theme because you will not be able to update it when an update comes out.

Using a child theme will enable you to modify the styles but still enable you to update. We have a short guide here: bonsaished.com/blog/kb/creating-a-child-theme/

If you implement a child theme you can just add rules to the child theme’s CSS file to overwrite the parent’s rules.

The only stylesheet used in the theme is style.css. This is generated from the files found in development/css.

Hi there,

I have two questions regarding some advanced features about this very nice theme, first one:

- Is there a way to list all the Custom Details of a property in a widget or a sidebar?

Second:

- How can I translate the english tags and words from the imperial system to the decimal system, say, to display m2 instead of squared feet and so on, both in the search engine as well as in the widgets.

Thanks and best regards!

Hello,

I have already purchased this theme. So far I really like it. I sent an email to your guys (hello@bonsaished.com) on Friday with some support questions, but haven’t gotten a reply yet. I know you are usually super fast to respond to things on here, so should I ask the questions on here? Maybe my email didn’t go through. Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi,

I’d like to know if when you click on the property on the map you could see the price or other information. On the demo page I can only see a picture and name of the property. Thank you!

LasPalmas Purchased

If the information about shortcodes is the same as what is under shortcodes (menu) I don’t really need it. Regarding the media, I was wondering if there was a way to add them to the galleries without having to open each of the pictures to see what the ID was.

I created a different menu and under customize theme I chose that as the navigation menu, but it still shows the original one with all the options.

The map search page never finishes loading and the home page (quarter map) shows Denver with the houses I added to Mallorca, Spain. Is there a way to have as the default map Mallorca? Also, can I change where it says Where do you want to live for where do you want to say ei.? Where would that code be?

Can you provide information on how to add a child them? Not sure if that’s the correct word, but I wanted to change the font size of the menu and body and I think that’s what you’ve recommended. I also wanted to change the background color, could you tell me where to find it under the CSS code?

I’m sorry for all the questions! I’m a little bit in a rush to finish this site. Thank you again!

Hi Daniel,

You can answer me after the 6th, no problem. I found the solutions to my main issues. I would still like to ask you a couple of things, but will write them again and wait until you’re back from your vacation. Merry Christmas!

Hello, Boy this looks great. Deciding whether to install WP-Property plugin or this theme. Can you tell me whether there is support for posting to Facebook Fan pages? or Twitter? Specifically, I would be using this as a property rental website and say I wanted to post new availability listings to my FB fan page. Would I be able to do this? I didn’t see RSS feed buttons on your sample pages.

Default-user

hmmmm Social Media is getting to be a huge part of our total marketing arsenal. I hope you give this a nod in future versions. Regarding the plugin solution I would not be sure how to set up the rss feed to insure that new rental availability listings were the only items posted to the feed or even which plugin would do this. If you have any insight to this it would be greatly appreciated. I am still going to get your theme it’s just to perfect form my needs.
