Pre-purchase question…loving the look and feel of this theme! I have a Commercial Real Estate client I’m about to start working with. How difficult would it be to “mold” this to work with Commercial properties? Totally vague question, I know. ;)

ProgressionStudios

It would be very easy to modify the theme for Commercial Properties. We include basic documentation that points you to where to adjust all of the custom fields within the theme files. For Commercial properties you should have no problems using the theme.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Awesome…well, I just started using your Camp theme for another client and like what I’ve seen and have seen your amazing support so I think I’m sold. Cheers! JC

cyrjm

Would you look at that…just got confirmation today from my client. Only took them 3 months. I will purchase this soon. Thanks! JC

ProgressionStudios
Great news JC! Feel free to jump into our support forums if you have any questions after purchase.

Hello, For SEO purposes, do property listing titles appear in the URL of the page? Also, do they appear as the page title, or if I’m using an SEO plugin, can I customize how the page title appears? Is there any documentation I can refer to about this and other general questions about your theme? It looks great and I’m considering purchasing. Thanks!

ProgressionStudios
1) Yes the address can appear in the URL of the pages (WordPress calls these Permalinks and you can customize them to your needs). The Live preview for example does this automatically and it’s noted in the documentation on how to do this:
http://freehold.progressionstudios.com/property/8519-starr-road-windsor-ca-95492/

2) Yep, the address appears as the page title automatically. Just remove the live preview iframe bar and you can view the live preview URLs and page titles.

3) Our documentation includes both written and videos. It’s very helpful and you can see the reviewers have noted it’s “Well Documented” on the right side of the Item Description.

In addition we offer support via our support forums in case any buyers need extra help. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Awesome, thanks. Everyone is right that you answer questions quickly!

One area that we would like to customize is the property status. We typically rent properties to two categories of people and do not do sales. I read through your support forums, and it seems like we could create something like “For Students” and apply that attribute to different properties, and then have “For Students” appear in the Property Status drop down menu of your search bar. Did I read that correctly? (Hope what I’m asking makes sense!)

Also, when a property is no longer available, would we just mark it as a draft to remove it from the front end listings, but still have it saved in our back end?

Your support forum looks great and the more I dig into your demo theme page, the more I love it.

ProgressionStudios

1) The property status is full customizable. This is basically like a blog category. You can add/remove them and rename them to your needs.

2) Yeah you can just mark the properties as draft. They will be removed from the listings but saved in WordPress.

Default-user

do you offer any way to bulk import properties? would i just use a third party csv import plugin? do you know if/how other people have done this?

ProgressionStudios

We don’t offer any bulk importer as that is a very niche product. There are tons of great third party plugins you can use although we can’t offer support for any third party products. We know of a few buyers that have used some IDX plugins to import feeds and content with success.

Good morning, I’m back with another question. We would like for the thumbnail photos that appear under the main photo on a property page to be displayed in rows, so the user does not need to scroll to see more thumbnails. If after we purchase your theme I’m not able to figure out how to tweak the display, can you give us a general quote of how much it would cost to have you do it?

ProgressionStudios
Go ahead and send me an e-mail in regards to any customization quotes:

Loving this theme. But a couple of questions? I thought the menu had a image background on roll over :( could you give me the code for this? (I’ll add whatever image ) Also I can’t get the slider to work on the home page w/ the demo content See its overlaying the search bar: http://lbhproperties.net/newdesign/ \ THANKS !!
ProgressionStudios
Go ahead and jump onto our support forums for any help.

Note: You didn’t import the attachments from the live preview XML file so you are missing the images. Just upload and set a featured image per the documentation and the slider will no longer overlap.

When I went to my single property listing the slide is gone. I do not know why. I even reinstalled a fresh Freehold and it still did not work. Do anyone has some advice on how I can resolve this issue?

Will I be able to have one site, let multiple agents create their own accounts, and post properties themselves? If yes, what does the interface to this look like?

ProgressionStudios

Yes, you can have multiple agents. The agents are just WordPress users with some custom fields. So they can post properties via the WordPress dashboard. You can give them lower permissions like a contributor or author so they would only be able to add properties and make no other changes to the site. Or you could build a front-end area for them to publish properties if you wanted something like that (Publishing via WordPress Dashboard is only supported, front-end publishing would be a customization unsupported).

dharmaone

That’s great, thank you for the answers! The theme looks great btw.

Would you be able to recommend a plugin for a customisable front end for making posts, or any documentation on how to DIY ?

ProgressionStudios
Just about any plugin should work fine as we are using default WordPress User Profiles. Also any tutorials from the web should work with the theme for bringing any fields to the front end. Here are some good front-end login screens to get you started:

Hello. 1) Is it possible to customize / add more fields? 2) Is it possible to embed youtube videos (play with Lightview or similar)?

ProgressionStudios

1) Yeah, you can customize/add more fields. We include basic documentation on how to find the custom meta box files and extend the theme. Note: We can’t offer any support beyond the basic documentation for customizations. Feel free to e-mail me and I can send you this documentation. I have forwarded it to other buyers interested in extending the theme.

2) You can play videos and open them in lightboxes in the portfolio only. THe real estate properties don’t support this feature. You could however embed a video or pop-up in the main content are of the post.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

ProgressionStudios
Due to popular request we just added the feature to embed videos onto property pages. You can see a screen-shot of this feature here:

Hi, nice theme :) Is it possible to embed videos in the property profile gallery?

ProgressionStudios

You can play videos and open them in lightboxes in the portfolio only. The real estate properties don’t support this feature. You could however embed a video or pop-up in the main content are of the post. I’ll look into adding this feature as it wouldn’t be difficult. Is this something that would be a must have? If so, send me an e-mail via my profile page.

Default-user

Hi, thanks for the quick reply. Yes, it’s pretty critical. I have a few realestate / property dev clients and they are all moving to video profiling in addition to images. Adding a video embed into the gallery section would be far more preferred than adding it to the post area. People want to view media in one space, not have to move around the page for it. Lightboxes are ok, but not great – it would be great to have gallery integration for mixed media. I’ll keep an eye on this theme for sure.

ProgressionStudios
Send me an e-mail via my profile page and I’ll send you some details on adding video to the property posts in the gallery area like in our portfolios. I can add this feature in easily as mentioned above (Will have an update in the next day or so). I’ve had a few buyers request this feature so I”ll add it:

Hello friends! I bought this beautiful theme and I’m very happy, congratulations! I’m setting it and the first question I have for you is about how it looks on my iPad 2. The logo and the menu are too close to the side edges, leaving no margin. I mean the left and right margins. It really looks ugly. Is there anything I can do to fix that? Thank you!

Is the slider dynamic? I noticed that the 1120×356 “slider” image you have for the properties in the slider (demo) does not show up elongated in the single property listings gallery when clicked on. How are you doing this? thanks

Hi,

If I’m viewing a single property, I should be able to contact the real estate office and let them know I’m interested in viewing that particular property.

Is there a “contact me about this listing” contact form or button for each property?

ProgressionStudios

Yeah, you can easily add this in. We provide many options for you to place buttons via a shortcode or hard-code one in (About a 30 second job).

Also, you could use Contact Form 7 (Styling built-in for the plugin) if you wanted to have a custom form on each page that let you know which property the buyer was contacting you about.

Let me know if you have any other pre-purchase questions.

Hey , there is a few errors here : http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Ffreehold.progressionstudios.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

Can you fix them? I wanna buy the theme but i need it to be perfect for me Thanks and have a good day

ProgressionStudios
Yeah, you can ignore those few validation errors. The errors explained: 5 of the errors are due to URL strings. W3 also tosses errors on Youtube/Vimeo URLs and many others that have spaces or miscellaneous characters. You don’t have to worry about this as they are just search URL strings that contain search queries. The first one is an attribute for Internet Explorer to make sure it isn’t running in compatibility mode. You can learn more about this tag here (It’s part of HTML5 Boilerplate):
http://css-tricks.com/forums/discussion/15909/x-ua-compatible-do-i-need-it/p1

Note: Validation is a great tool but remember it’s simply recommending on standards. Unfortunately browser like IE don’t go by these so we use this tool and W3 for best practices.

Let me know if you have any other questions. Also, feel free to test away on any browser, everything works on IE7 all the way to Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

Default-user

Yeah, you right . i’m already test them, they work fine…

other subject: what about Google font? , why the theme dosen’t support them?

ProgressionStudios

Our theme uses Google Fonts. We also have an option in our Theme Options panel for adjusting the themes fonts.

Default-user

Ok , thanks, i have last important issue:.

if you will go to : PROPERTIES -> For Rent

you will see headline that say: SEARCH RESULTS …

so first i have to note that it is wrong beacuse the headline should be For Rent or something like that , can i edit the headline? if yes how?

other issue: on the same page (ROPERTIES -> For Rent ) there is ADVANCED SEARCH and SEARCH RESULTS now they H2…. It should not be that way. first the ADVANCED SEARCH need to be H3 or H4, and the SEARCH RESULTS need to be “For Rent” (or something like that) and H2 like it is

http://imgur.com/mKf01
ProgressionStudios

Search Results will remain the title on all search results. The Advanced search on the left will fill on all fields so you know what you are searching for.

Also, we use H1-H6 based on heading size and importance (You are showing the page title heading so it’s a rather important one). If you want to adjust this to H3 or H4 after purchase you are more than welcome to. You would only need to edit one template file for that change. If you want to discuss coding practices then send me an e-mail and I will be more than happy to direct you to great resources.

There is some login for agents to upload properties???

ProgressionStudios

Agents are setup as WordPress Users so everything is handled via the WordPress Dashboard. They can be set to any user roles, author, contributor, etc (This means you can have their posts be automatically accepted or wait in a queue for approval before being posted). Also, they will only be able to publish content and not see any other sections of the website backend. Everything will remain secure and straightforward.

Thanks! ... and if I’m an agent I only see the properties that i uploaded, but not the properties that has been uploaded by other agents. That’s OK?

ProgressionStudios
Yeah, you would just assign the agents to the user role of “Author”. That would allow them to publish & edit their own posts but not others.

I have a last question… there’s a possibility to customize the search fields? For example: I need other fields as country, neighbourhood, and a code. That’s easy to do?

ProgressionStudios

Adding additional search fields requires editing the theme files. If you have a specific field like a Bedroom number or something like that, it is super easy to add. The only difficult fields to add in addition are keyword search fields because WordPress limitations. WordPress does not provide the best keyword search options. Instead it would be advised to use drop down lists or number searches like the price. Those would be much easier to add (Still a customization though).

How do I remove fields in the home page search bar? For example, if I want to remove the option “number of beds,” and “number of baths”, how would I do so?

Additionally, I removed “for rent” and “for sale” and inserted different values in the property_options.php file. However, in the sidebar advanced search and the home page advanced search, these changes were not reflected. Can you please direct me in the direct direction? :)

I need a theme to use for a tour company (cruises, domestic tours, motor coach, etc.).

I’m sure there would be plenty to change to make it work for that type of business, but do you feel that this would be doable?

ProgressionStudios
Yeah, you could change the theme to display tours instead of properties. Feel free to send me an e-mail and I can provide you with some documentation that we include with the theme. It includes some basic information and code examples on how easy it is to extend/customize the framework. We tried to keep things easy to customize as we knew many buyers would use this theme for various projects outside of real estate.
