Hi how to use this theme. I have bought this theme for so long but didn’t know how to start at all. Any hints? I want to do for real estate website.

You’ll just need to read up on the documentation. Be sure to start with the “Getting Started” section. Then continue with the rest.

Hi !

I just updated my banner texts in the “banner choices”, but now there’s a comma showing up in some of the choices either (after or before the text, and there’s no comma in the banners I chose): http://hpics.li/9364634

Is there any way to fix that?

Thx

BuchmannDesign

Go into those listings and make sure you have a banner set in the first banner setting and not the second.

Hello is it possible to edit the listings from the listings themselfs. I do not see the wordpress menu on the listings page.

BuchmannDesign

The admin bar should be everywhere, not just on the pages and blogs. But if for some reason it’s not, I can add a snippet of code into a file of your site that will add an “edit listing” button.

Default-user

Can you give me the code and where to put it and I will check.

BuchmannDesign
Try putting this code into single-listing.php…. <?php edit_post_link('edit', '<p>', '</p>'); ?>

The location depends on where you want it to show up. If the layout falls apart, then you must have put it in an improper place.If so, try moving the code.

Hi, Just checking to see if this is an issue or not, I’ve just started using iThemes Security plugin and one of the High Priority notices “The front page of your site is not using a safe version of jQuery or the version of jQuery cannot be determined.” so I just seeing if this is a going to be a security risk at all using the 1.8.2 version?

Thanks mate!

Dear BuchmannDesign,

I need to use “Manufacturers” and “Models” in two languages with qtranslate. Using ”|en” or “[:en]” on single and different lines do not work.

Also How can I change dollar sign for prices to other than ”$”?

Thanks for fast response. Then, how can I change order of search criterias. For example first dropt down to be fuel type and manufacturer to be the last?

SOLVED. Edited order of criterias in customsearchform-cars.php

I have a site using the old version of Automotiv (no longer available). I’d like to upgrade the the new version. Before I begin putting together the new website, is the content (cars) easily transferable?

BuchmannDesign

Yes, the “post types” are the same, so you won’t need to re-post your listings. It’s a different layout with some different/extra Theme Options, so you will have to do a little setup, but it shouldn’t be a lot. That said, please check out our “newest” car dealer theme called Top Producer /Top Speed: http://themeforest.net/item/top-producer-real-estate-and-top-speed-car-dealer/7048191/comments It it also compatible in the same way as Automotiv.

Is it possible to use this theme with other auto dealer management systems and software?

BuchmannDesign

It’s not meant to. Each listing must be entered manually. Alternatively many people use the WP All Import premium plugin to import “feeds” into it.

Hello,

I have a quick question about the theme.

I have checked the dslExpress plugin(http://www.dsidxpress.com/) for MLS. However, my area is NOT included in the coverage area of this IDX solution.

In addition, I have found another one which you can find here: http://www.ihomefinder.com/products/optima-express/

I am just wondering if you can make the theme support it if possible.

Please let me know your opinion, thank you in advance!

BuchmannDesign

Only dsIDXpress is supported, as this theme has code hooks specifically for it.

Our new theme, Top Producer doesn’t have such hooks, but does also support dsIDXpress purely by it’s widgets. So in theory, if iHomefinder works by having widgets, then in theory it should work. Only problem could be CSS styling.

I have a client with a really old install of Automotiv – version 1.45! I want to get them up to date with a more current theme that is supported and hopefully responsive without loosing all the content and customizations that have been made (such as all the car listings). Is OpenDoor my only option? Will I have to go through anything extensive to update/upgrade?

I eventually want to get to something that can automatically pull in listings from an RSS or XML feed. I figured getting to a more current theme would be a good first step.

What options do I have or what would you recommend?

BuchmannDesign

Well, if you don’t want to lose your current listings, then you would need to go with OpenDoor, or the brand new Top Speed theme. OpenDoor is probably an easier transition that Top Speed, because because of Themeforest’s new requirements, “custom post types” (like the Listings post type) have to be done using a plugin. So with Top Speed you would need to install a plugin and import a file first. But if you like Top Speed, i would say go with that, as it’s newer by a couple of years. :) As for importing, the only way I know is with the WP All Import plugin. Kind of a steep learning curve IMO, but I know many people using it with OpenDoor. Should also be no problem with Top Speed.

Default-user

I assume Top Speed would be preferred since it is currently supported, correct?

I didn’t think of using WP All Import because I thought the listings in your themes were not normal posts. How would I use WP All Import with Top Speed (or OpenDoor or Automotiv)?

BuchmannDesign

Both are still supported, but Top Speed is the future. :) What WP All Import does, is import data from a feed, XML, CSV, etc and puts it into the WP database. So it really is adding real listings into the site, as if you posted them yourself. But the learning curve, I hear, is a bit steep. For example, you have to “map” theme fields with fields in the feed so the import knows where to import the data. Also, depending on the feed, not all the data may match up with equivalent fields in the theme. That said, I know of people using this plugin and are happy with it. I don’t have first hand experience with it, so I cannot help/support it for you.

I have a problem. I want to introduce “ALARCON” as a second location within the province “CUENCA”.

I added within this route public_html / www.alfafincas.com / wp-content / themes / OpenDoor1.4 / secondary_locations, the term ALARCON and did not appear on my website.

I thought it might be something cache my site. I tried to pluguin WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache but still the same.

The content that I have inside/home/rgjabega/public_html/www.alfafincas.com/wp-content/themes/OpenDoor1.4/secondary_locations/CUENCA.txt, is as follows:

<option value=””>Cualquier localidad</option> <option>ALARCON</option> <option>LA ALBERCA DE ZÁNCARA</option> <option>LA ALMARCHA</option> <option>ATALAYA DEL CAÑAVATE</option> <option>BELMONTE</option> <option>EL CAÑAVATE</option> <option>CARRASCOSA DE HARO</option> <option>CASAS DE BENÍTEZ</option> <option>CASAS DE FERNANDO ALONSO</option> <option>CASAS DE HARO</option> <option>CASAS DE LOS PINOS</option> <option>CUENCA</option> <option>EL HERRUMBLAR</option> <option>LA HINOJOSA</option> <option>HONRUBIA</option> <option>HORCAJO DE SANTIAGO</option> <option>MOTA DEL CUERVO</option> <option>MOTILLA DEL PALANCAR</option> <option>OLIVARES DEL JUCAR</option> <option>EL PEDERNOSO</option> <option>LAS PEDROÑERAS</option> <option>PINAREJO</option> <option>POZOAMARGO</option> <option>EL PROVENCIO</option> <option>QUINTANAR DEL REY</option> <option>SAN CLEMENTE</option> <option>SANTA MARÍA DE LOS LLANOS</option> <option>SANTA MARÍA DEL CAMPO RUS</option> <option>SISANTE</option> <option>TÉBAR</option> <option>VARA DE REY</option>

Hi!

I have a question. Is there a way to export all the data for a listed car? What I want is to export the data in a printable form so I can just print it and paste it as a sticker in my cars.

Thanks! Edmundo

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, that’s not possible.

Hello,

I can’t seem to enter any property images?

It says add your property images using the “Upload/Insert” button above the content textbox. I don’t see that anywhere??

Thanks in advance.

BuchmannDesign

Whoops, I need to update that text in the documentation. WP changed that button text to “Add Media”.

Hi, qTranslate is not WP 4.1.1 compatible and wont work with your theme! I need to use multilanguage site… q Translate plugin has been abandoned. It hasn’t been updated in over a year, I wouldn’t expect any updates soon. There is now https://wordpress.org/plugins/qtranslate-x/

BuchmannDesign

It’s compatible with “Qtranslate Plus”, which is good with 4.1.1: https://wordpress.org/plugins/qtranslate-xp/ But there are a few theme code adjustments to be made: http://www.informatik.com/themeforest/opendoor_realestate/forums/topic/qtranslate-dead-long-live-qtranslate-plus/

Hello,

Thanks for the quick response! I’m still having trouble figuring out how to input property images?

When I first installed the theme, I brought in your demo properties. But When I view the demo content I don’t see any images either…? The images are shown when you preview it? But I don’t see them anywhere when editing?

I hope this makes sense?

BuchmannDesign

Sounds unusual. Please send me your WP login details from here, and I’ll check this out: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hi , I sent you a private message about 20 days ago regarding a problem with the theme, anything?

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, I just replied to your email.

Hello Been using this theme since 2013. Possible to have it full screen vs boxed?

I searched your support forum but did not find any information.

Thanks

Default-user

Just saw a comment from 2 months ago. You replied telling the user that there is no full screen option. What would need to be modified to make this work?

If you can give me a list of code modifications, i can give it to our web developer.

BuchmannDesign

By full width, I guess you mean where the header and footer span the full browser width? The content in between would remain a fixed width. If so, the general idea would be to edit both header.php and footer.php. Change the code so there is a container DIV that goes full width, but the stuff inside it is a fixed width and centered. Add color or background image to the container DIV. That’s the general idea.

That said, you may want to consider our newer theme Top Producer / Top Speed. It has built-in a Theme Option to go wide or boxed. See the demo for the real estate mode to see the wide version. See the car dealer mode for the boxed version.

I have received spam in the comments of the details view of the vehicles, I searched something about a possible captcha utility or similar but the documentation does not indicate anything about it … I installed some external plugins for captcha but they don’t work with the theme … any suggestions?

Hi.

Opendoor Theme. I have just updated to Wordpress version 4.2 and the thumbnails in the admin area “property listings” seem to have scaled to 177×100 and are blocking out the price column. I have reinstalled WP and deactivated all plugins and the error still exists, it was fine before the new WP update, any help appreciated.

BuchmannDesign

Hmmm, yes, looks like 4.2 messes with things a bit. I don’t know how to get it exactly as it was, but this will force the table to never get too narrow, which is causing the overlap: edit /functions/theme-functions.php, and add this code right after the opening <?php tag:
