I’m having tough times making the slider pictures show correctly on the slideshow. First, what are the exact pixel dimensions of the slider? What is the recommended picture size to fit perfectly on the slideshow?

Thanks for your feedback on this.

The theme will take your single images that you upload for a listing, and resize/crop to fit all sizes and shapes for that image on the site. The slideshow is the most unusual shape because it’s much wider than tall, so there will be a lot of cropping on top and bottom. That said, your minimum image dimensions should be in this window… width should be min of 960px, and height should be min of 450px. So if it fits somewhere in there, then you should be good. If you need a totally different custom image to be used for the slideshow that overrides the images you set for the listing, there is a special slideshow image setting when you post your listing.

There is no theme setting to change the order. But I hear some work around this by changing the publish date of the listings.

Hi BuchmannDesign,

I noticed that if I click on any of the “Browse By” links, then try, on the next page, to select items to compare, I get a “Not Found” result. My site is still in development so I can’t give you a url yet. I have however noticed the same issue with other buyer’s sites from this forum. See, for instance http://www.cantucommercial.com/ or even http://allmotorscardiff.com/

“Browse By” any link, then Compare.

I have set the ID of the compare page.

I noticed this does not happen when I SEARCH (by Manufacturer, for example), then Compare.

Also, the url looks like http://localhost/autodealer/manufacturer/mercedes-benz/compare?lang=&compare=355,268 when it does NOT work but like http://localhost/autodealer/compare/?lang&compare=268%2C355 when it DOES work. I hope that will help in diagnosing the issue.

Can you help?

Hi there, I have been in the process of fine tuning my page after completing almost everything to my satisfaction. Here are a couple of things in which I would need some feedback from you:

1. In the Search Results Page, I want to modify the words “All Listings” by other wording. This is the area where all listings appear together with the map at the top. I already modified the one that appears on the front page by changing the text on the Theme Options, but in that particular page it seems that I will have to do other things.

2. In the Sub-Footer area below the footer (where the copyright words are located) I would like to do the following modifications: 1. Make it a little bit taller so I can use that space to write additional disclaimer information. 2. I would like to change the background color, font size and font color.

3. Blog Page – RSS Link – I have just noticed that for the purpose of the Wordpress configuration the template recognize the Listings as if they were actually Blog Posts, which causes that when someone subscribe or access the RSS Link what they get is a summary of the latest Listings and NOT the Blog posts. I would like that when people subscribe to my RSS feed they get my blog post refreshed and not necessarily the listings. Any word of advice on how we can fix that??

4. Image Gradient – I have chosen the option of having just photos on the slider and not my listings. I have noticed that when you select listings to appear on the slider a nice gradient appear with the price and other listing details. Is there any way that I could use the same gradient to appear on the slider with my pictures but modifying the message??

Thanks in advance for your words of advice on everything.

P.S By the way, I’m using the Real Estate version.

Beautiful theme, great features.

I have a client request, he would like to add a search box where the user can add keywords and click search. Example (toyota corolla) etc.. Something extra apart from the search choices.. Anyway, let me know, thank you for your time.

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, that is not possible.

Hi,

looks like a very nice theme, is it easy to modify the car theme for another business (machine vendor), so can I change characteristics in the search panel like Mileage and Body Type or add my own? Same for the tabs on the detail page like Entertainment, Safety etc etc. TIA for your help!

BuchmannDesign

Changing to another business is actually not a simple thing. It’s easier to possibly modify existing fields to be used for something else, but if you don’t do deeper customizations, it can be confusing to the person posting as the titles and descriptions for the data entry fields will be for houses/cars and not machine vendors. And probably you may need additional search fields, which is much more difficult. Also the “browse by” feature is another whole thing. So…. i say no, you can’t easily do that unless you have some major customizations. I can do customizations like this for a fee.

Question, can I use the Revolution Slider plugin and incorporate it as the main slider on the main page, instead of using the built in slider that comes with the template?

Thanks, Alex

BuchmannDesign

Possibly…. please email me from here and I’ll explain in detail: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

and I haven’t seen the feature to change currency. Thank you.

BuchmannDesign

Please be sure to read the documentation on creating your first listing… it shows how to upload your images. The currency symbol is set in Theme Options -> General Settings.

Hello,

I am having some difficulty with this theme. I am using it for a auto dealership, and the size of the website is becoming very large, and it’s taking me a long time to back things up. Why is it that when I move a vehicle to the trash, that it is not removed from the website completely? Or is it, and I just don’t know what I’m talking about? Any help would be great. This is the second time I have purchased one of your themes for this website.

Thanks,

Dominique

BuchmannDesign

It’s normal behavior when you delete a post/listing that it goes to “trash”. You need to go to your trash screen and clear it out.

Hi, how can i set up the slider for all pages? I uploaded some photos, but the slider does not appear on any site.

Thx

BuchmannDesign

The homepage slider can only be for the homepage, no sub pages.

ok, how can i setup the slider than for homepage?` I created i new home site, but the slider does not appear.

BuchmannDesign

Oh, go to Settings -> Reading, and make sure the TOP option is selected.

Hello. I have a question/feature resquest:

I am looking at the Cars Site. In the Browse By and Search Site options, If is search for “Ford” cars it shows no results. If I search for Convertible Ferraries there are no results either.

My question/suggestion is that the theme should only show available combinations. If there are no Convertible Ferrari available, that option should not come out.

thank you!

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, that’s not possible. The best it can do is with manufacturers…. if there are no “Audi” listings, then Audi will not show up in the search dropdown, even if you have it set to show in Theme Options.

Hi,

I’m very interrested in your theme for a side project, and I have 2 questions:

- is it possible to increase the font size for the menu? (or is your theme compatible with some menu customizer plugin?)

- is it possible to reduce the height of the sideshow?

Thx!

Julien, who really appreciates your custom text option

BuchmannDesign

Changing the menu font size would have to be done only by editing CSS. There is not a Theme Options setting for this. Same for slideshow height.

Hey there! I’ve been searching for the answer but cannot find it. Is there a way to hide the listings map on the IDX community search results page by default? As of now, visitors have to manually click the “hide map” button. the map is huge and taking up too much real estate (pun intended). Thanks in advance x3! :-)

BuchmannDesign

That’s a dsIDXpress plugin feature, so you’ll need to ask this question to their support team: (diversesolutions.com)

Hello!

How can I put the agents in this place? http://4.firepic.org/4/images/2014-08/29/3p14o83b45ve.png
BuchmannDesign

There is code in /js/custom.js that actually moves it from there and puts it into the side bar. If you can find and delete that line of code, then you’ll be partly there. Once it’s out of the sidebar, you’ll probably need to play with CSS to position and lay it out better.

Please help! I purchased this theme and loaded it… but the slideshow does not appear at all. I don’t understand why! Please advise!

Initially I was getting a “fatal error” message regarding an issue with DesignThemes Core Features Plugin. I deactivated the plug-in, and no longer get an error message… but for the life of me don’t understand why I cannot see the slideshow…

Not sure. Please email me your WP login and I’ll check this out. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hi !

I have added a new data entry field called “reference” for the post type “listing” (car). I followed these instructions

All works fine, but i need to te able to perform a search (with native search of WP) by this new field “reference”. I can’t figure how to make this work…

I added the “exclude_from_search” attribut ( Automobile_listing() ) 'public' => true, 'exclude_from_search' => false,

But this doesn’t work…

How can i include the custom post type ‘listing’ in Wordpress search ?

Thanks in advance !
