The best real-estate theme by far… would be killer if you added listings to be created by IDX feed… im sure your sales would increase 300%

Orbital_Themes

Hello,

thanks! I know that IDX plugin support would be great, unfortunately the plugin’s HTML output is table based and I don’t think it can be changed. Once it’s possible I may consider adding support for it. :)

Best wishes!

Hi I have purchased and it looks great. I am using WPAllImport to load from my CRM however my CRM has prices with decimal places which are now on the feed. Obviously the price field on this does not like dots etc – any ideas how i can avoid?

Also what is best way to add images to the listings?

Looking forward to doing great things with this

Default-user

I have sorted this – no problem thank you

Orbital_Themes

Hello,

can you share with others what you did? Did you change something in the theme or in the WPAllImport plugin?

Cheers!

Default-user

hi – no just created a dupe field in my CRM with currency formatted without decimal points.

That’s great to hear! Cheers!

Hi,

Thanks for the awesome theme! I’m trying to add more fields to the registration form, any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Orbital_Themes

Hello,

you can add new fileds (like your custom validation) by copying form-register from orbital-login directory to the same directory in your child theme and editing it to add new fields.

You can then validate the data as you would normally do with WordPress registration – by plugging into register_post action or adding a filter to registration_errors. Please see WordPress Codex for more information about these hooks.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

can you explain what you mean by this?

“unfortunately the plugin’s HTML output is table based and I don’t think it can be changed.”

Regarding using an IDX feed to populate the listings.

thanks

Hi,

Demand for different design of homepage.

What are you going to add for the next release?

Thanks

Orbital_Themes

Hi,

if you are not happy with current homepage design you can always customize it via your child theme to suit your needs.

Hi

How can i upload multiple images for a property listing ?

Thanks and Great theme Great support by the way.

Orbital_Themes

Hello, sorry for late response. You can upload multiple images to a post as you would normally do using WordPress – click ‘Add Media’ button when writing a post and just select multiple images.

Hope this helps! Cheers!

Hi, i have tried “add media” but the pictures dont come as thumbnails. they come like this http://www.q8properties.co.uk/listings/pavilion-apartments-st-johns-wood/ please i need help urgently
Orbital_Themes

Hello again,

I can see that your website is now undergoing some heavy customizations and I can’t access the listing you’ve linked to.

As to why the thumbnails weren’t created properly – please make sure to wait until you see the thumbnail come up in media uploader when uploading images. There are lot’s of sizes that images are cut into and it can take a while, especially on slower servers and when uploading multiple images.

Best wishes!

Default-user

Hi Orbital, you were right doing some work on the website.

I finally got it to work fine. What i notice is when i upload pictures from my computer. It works fine. However when i use pictures already in my media library, they don’t form thumbnail. Anyway i found the way to do it…... Again Your Theme is PHENOMENAL and your level of support is GREAT. Keep it up and You will be a legend HERE….. (I mean you are already ) Never Mind anybody that have a negative comment about this theme. i will congratulate you every time i have the opportunity.

Thanks for support

Orbital_Themes

Hello again,

great to hear that you’ve resolved your problems. How attaching images to posts in WordPress works is you have to upload an image when viewing post edit screen, using ‘Add media’ button. Only then images are saved as post attachment, and attachments are the ones forming listing gallery in ListingPress. If you, however, have uploaded images earlier to your media library (from ‘Media Library’ section in WP admin panel), these images are not saved as attachments to any post. Placing them later manually into post content doesn’t turn them into attachments, and hence the issues you were describing. It’s also important to note that you don’t have to place any images in your post content field, just upload them from within edit post screen.

Hope this helps, cheers!

Hello!

Your theme is getting even better. Congratulations!

I did some customisation using the child theme. I just updated the parent theme with the new version. However, the login/register is not showing to me. The heart (favourite) on the yellow tab is also not showing, is just a yellow box. Also, it did let me to save as favourite. Is that because I’m an admin? The last thing I noticed is that the Author name is my email and not my name. How can I change that? Also, after published its going over the box. Do you have an email that i could send my wordpress login details so you can have a look of what Im seeing?

Cheers, Karen

Default-user

Hi I deactivate the plugin under construction so you can have a look: www.imoveispassoapasso.com Thanks

Orbital_Themes

Hello,

sorry for late response.

There are two reasons why the login is not present in your header:

  1. Have you installed Orbital Login plugin that’s included with the theme? This can be done by going to Appearance / Theme Options / Plugins.
  2. If Orbital Login is installed, have you made any changes to header.php file? That is – do you have a header.php in your child theme? If yes – it takes precedence over the parent theme’s file, and you have to update it to match the updates that were done to it.

The same goes for favorite icon (heart) – the icons.png and icons_2x.png files have been changed, so if you have included them in your child theme and mentioned them within your child theme’s stylesheet, you have to copy them from parent theme once more.

Why wouldn’t you be able to add listings to favorites? Every WordPress role has this capability, but you have to be logged in to do that.

The last thing about display name – in WordPress you usually change your display name in Users / Your Profile. Once you install Orbital Login, you’d be able to do that on the page that you have designated as account settings page (either by creating a page with Account Settings template or including [orbital-edit-profile] shortcode on one of your pages).

Hope this helps!

Best wishes!

Hi,

Few questions !,

1. option for agents to list unlimited properties per month for a fee?
2. payment gateway ? paypal, but i also prefer http://www.mijireh.com/ as ssl or dedicate ip is not required.
3. rent – availability calendar
4. street map view
5. youtube video
6. property plan (pdf to download )
7. multiple agents (to assign more than 1 agent per account)

Thanks for your time replying…
m.

Orbital_Themes

Hello,

sorry for late response. To answer your questions:

  1. This is coming as part of the next major update.
  2. See above answer. There will be an option to pay for membership via PayPal.
  3. I dont’t have any plans for availability calendar right now, but I’m not saying a definite ‘no’ to such features.
  4. You can already change the map view to street, as you would normally do in Google Maps.
  5. That’s something to think about, thanks for the suggestion.
  6. As above, good suggestion.
  7. WordPress only allows one user per post and that’s what I want to stick with.

Best wishes!

Hi, and thanks for replying !
What i want is:
Me as admin of my real estate website to have agents come to my site ,register and post their unlimited real estate listings, rent,sale,lease,open house,time share,etc… for a monthly fee ! ,with option of reminder 3-5 days before that the listing to that specific account will expire on date….,
For nr.5 , there are already real estate that can do that ,plus in your description you said : “multiple agents”?!
Other options:
- Compare listings
- Idx/mls integration options for people that want to use it.
When you planing to come with all this updates?
Thanks,

Orbital_Themes

Hello again,

I said ‘multiple agents’ because you can have as many WordPress users with posting capabilities as you’d like, and each of these users will be listed on ‘Agents’ page template and will have his/her own agent page. Other themes indeed offer ability to assign multiple agents to each listing but, as far as I know, they do not use default WordPress users, but rather register separate ‘agent’ post type. This will cause issues once you want to use any WordPress plugin that touches users, like S2Member, which I’m going to use for membership management.

As I said before, paid membership will be in the next major update and I am currently investigating how exactly could paid listings be managed.

Hi, Can I add Widget on Footer?

Orbital_Themes

Hello,

as you can see by visiting the demo – there are no widget ready areas in the footer. Just footer navigation, logo and copyright text. You can always change the footer functionality in your child theme, though.

Hi, I have a pre-sale question.

Can this theme been used also for a general directory? Not just real estate? I would like to buy this theme but I’m not sure if I will be able to properly setup i.e. also “company listings” or “services” rather than real estate only.

Thanks

Orbital_Themes

Hello,

sorry for late response. You can convert ListingPress to any niche you’d like via your child theme. What you have to do is register your own taxonomies/meta boxes (and de-register default ones, or completely overwrite functions that register taxonomies/meta boxes) in your child theme. Registering taxonomies is, of course, done via WordPress taxonomy API and for meta boxes ListingPress uses Meta Box framework (you can find tutorials for it here). All that needs to be done after that is registering search filters via ListingPress’ API – please find tutorials for modifying search filters here.

I have a question re _listingpress_bedrooms – it seems to only want to accept and display a numerical value greater than zero. I have some properties which are studios, i.e. no dedicated bedroom. If i set to zero it won’t work fully and if i set to studio it seems not to like text as value – any thoughts or can i get it to accept zero? overall template is fantastic – just want to tweak this aspect

Orbital_Themes

Hi Scott,

this has already been suggested and will be a part of one of future updates. You will be able to completely omit such fields and the bathroom count just won’t show up. Thanks!

Good afternoon. I wanted to know if the template includes geo-positioning to see nearby properties. In case you do not possess, it would be good to know if integration is possible.

Thank you!

Orbital_Themes

Hi,

Geolocation is definitely a feature that I want to add to ListingPress in the future.

Hi,

I have a pre sale question. Can agents sign up to the website and pay to advertise their own properties on this theme?

Thanks

Default-user

I think the template also needs social media integration, so properties can be shared on facebook and twitter etc

Orbital_Themes

Hi,

I am working on frontend submissions with paid membership and they’ll be a part of the next major update.

There are already lots of social media plugins so there’s no need to have that coded into the theme.

Best wishes!

Default-user

When is the next update due roughly?

Default-user

And sorry another question are search results generated from the map, so a postcode will bring up nearby properties. Thanks

Orbital_Themes

Hi,

sorry for late response. Search results are just displayed on the map and taxonomy terms are a subject to search.

Pre Sale Questions

1. Is there an option for a home to be marked as “Under Contract”, similar to how a home is marked at For Sale, or Sold?

2. Can i mark a home as “Open House”?

Orbital_Themes

Hi,

  1. That’s not currently possible. ‘For rent’ status was just a request of a lot of people here so I added it quickly. I may consider building upon this feature in the future, but for now there are other things that I’m working on.
  2. You could add another taxonomy or post meta to listings via your child theme to mark listings as ‘Open house’.

Cheers!

How can i amend the placeholders on the home page i.e. Sate, City ZIP etc? just need to amend and cannot find it thank you

Orbital_Themes

Hello,

to change any text in a WordPress theme you’d go through localization process. If you want a quick start on this without learning how to localize themes or plugins you can use Codestyling Localization plugin.

Hope this helps!

OK thank you – will check it out

Hi Orbital T: I’ve not got any messages from you since and only decided to check if the front end submission for public users is now available on theme subject to admin approval

and if subscription is possible on the theme now -

do you have any latest images to go with these questions?

Thanks. J

Orbital_Themes

Hello,

sorry for late response. Frontend posting and paid membership will be a part of the next major update.

Cheers!

drjohndimi

No problem – how soon are we to expect this Frontend posting and other features…..when is the next major update?

Orbital_Themes

I am aiming to release the next major version by the end of the month if everything goes as intended. :)

drjohndimi

Amen to that! So this means that with this next release I can operate a property portal where people can register and then post/list their property for free (without having to go to the backend)? That would be great.

Orbital_Themes

Exactly, for free or by paying for membership via PayPal. :)

drjohndimi

Goody Goody! Can’t wait to lay my hands on your property portal – should I tell my brother to stop working on the site he’s building for me?

Please check through everything – what I and any buyer wouldn’t want is complaints from those listing.

Orbs what’s your next project after this? Wish you great sales!

Orbital_Themes

Well, it’s up to you to decide. :) I would suggest waiting until the updates are ready before making such drastic decisions about your project.

For my next ThemeForest item I wanted to build a proper wiki theme, but that’s not set in stone yet. Any niche where I can work on user interface will be great! :)

Hello. Only a question: is it possible you can set this page: http://listingpress.pogoking.net/browse-listings/ as homepage for the site with WP options?

Orbital_Themes

Hi,

you can set any page as home page in Settings / Reading.

Best wishes!
