Hi BuchmannDesign,

Great theme with Open Door.

I have a few questions:

1. I want to have the image caption displayed in the image gallery slideshow and Lightbox. As is, I am adding a caption on each image with graphic software. This is time consuming and something my client does not want to do. Does the caption display – is this possible?

2. I want to sort by price the recent listings under the slideshow on the homepage. Is this possible?

3. SOLD PAGE TEMPLATE: As is, the first line only has one house and the other lines are three across. I want to have three homes on each line. Is this possible?

4. LOAN CALCULATOR: Can I preset value for % and years?

5. COMPARE PAGE: Not showing correctly. Shows page but not selected houses. Must all category’s be checked in for each listing?

Thank you for your help.

BuchmannDesign

1. Sorry, not possible 2. Please email me from here and i’ll help you out. Should not be too difficult. http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign 3. this seems to happen for a some… please email me from link above and i’ll send you 3 updated files. 4. Not possible. Calculator is a 3rd party and very complex script that really can’t be edited easily. But if you’re a wiz with javascript, you could give it a try by editing /includes/loancalculator.php 5. Maybe you didn’t set this feature up correctly. I’ll check this out if you will email me your WP login info from the link above.

My logo for my website doesn’t appear on the top header. Neither main or secondary logo. I went to appearance->theme options and uploaded the pictures and saved theme. What am I doing wrong and how can i fix this?

BuchmannDesign

It’s possible that your logo is so huge that only the top left corner is showing. And if it’s white, then it will “appear” to be invisible. make sure your logo image is the proper size before uploading it to the site.

Default-user

What is the recommended size for the logo? Can I change the size of a picture?

BuchmannDesign

You must have the logo be the proper size before uploading to the theme. Typically a height of 100px is good.

1. First make sure you set up the Search Results page as explained in the documentation. This is very important. If still it doesn’t search, then… 2. See these troubleshooting tips: http://www.informatik.com/themeforest/opendoor_realestate/forums/topic/search-results-problems-2/

Hello!

Can I hide some fields on the page “Add New Listing”? I need to hide the MLS number, “Open House Date”, “Open House Time”, “Choose another Agent”

And to make the default “NO” to “Show Street View”

Thank you!

Default-user

I comment out the line in the file / OpenDoor 1.4/functions.php and set to “NO” to “std” Nothing breaks??? =)

BuchmannDesign

Yes, it’s easy to remove fields… just edit functions.php and remove what you don’t want. Code seems self explanatory. For Street View, change std to NO, but for the choices, switch the order so NO is first, otherwise the default may still be YES.

Default-user

It works! Thank you!

Hello Buchmann Design,

I purchased this theme and I’m currently using it for a car dealership. Is there a way i can display all the listings of vehicles under a page called inventory. Not sure how to get that, please advise as to where i can get that page template or how to make one.

Thanks and great template, keep up the good work!

Tech

BuchmannDesign

So you basically want an “All Listings” page, right? See the documentation under the section for “All Listings”.

Hi I want to change the Reg Number field into Vin Number rather then using Vin.com services. I have made the changes to functions.php and theme-options.php and though function changed the wording in the admin section. theme-options.php did not change the wording on the actual website. Here is what I changed: $options[] = array( “name” => “VIN Number text”, “desc” => “Text for ‘VIN Number’ label in the detail page”, “id” => $shortname.”_regnumber_text”, “type” => “textarea”, “std” => “VIN Number”);

Does “id” => $shortname.”_regnumber_text”, need to be changed as well and into what? Thanks.

BuchmannDesign

“regnumber_text” can be anything you want. Just reflect that change in /includes/variables.php, where the code there puts that value into a variable name. The variable name (word with dollar sign in front) is what is used throughout the site to output the value.

Default-user

I found this value in variables.pho $regno = get_post_meta($post->ID, “regno_value”, true); I’m not sure what to do with it. it’s already there. I just want the display wording on the site under basic detail to say VIN Number, Rather then Reg Number:

BuchmannDesign

If you just want to change the wording, then just change the text in Theme Options -> Custom Text. Instead of it saying Reg Number, chang it to VIN number.

Default-user
omakad Purchased

That’s what I thought, and that’s what I did, but the wording on the website is not changing. I found this part and changed Reg to VIN under std: $options[] = array( “name” => “Registration Number text”, “desc” => “Text for ‘Registration Number’ label in the detail page”, “id” => $shortname.”_regnumber_text”, “type” => “textarea”, “std” => “VIN Number”);

BuchmannDesign

the “std” code is for the default value for the first time that you open Theme Options. Once you make any change to Theme Options, that value has no meaning. You need to change the actual text inside of Theme Options -> Custom Text. That said, if it’s not working for you, then you must be doing something wrong. Since you are customizing the theme, I’d have to charge a small fee for my time to go into your site and make your desired change.

Hello Sir,

I’ve sent you a few e-mails not sure if they went through in regards to customization for this theme.

Could you please let me know.

Thanks,

Todd

BuchmannDesign

I wasn’t getting them! This happens occasionally with my gmail where new emails in a thread go to trash. I’ll dig it up and reply back very soon.

Thanks! Let me know if you can’t find them.

Hi There

Looks like a great template and ready to purchase…but I just need to know what the URL looks like when one does a search?

Does it look like something like this – http://www.test.co.za/listings/bmw-black-2door-sport

Reason for asking is we have a client that is very SEO conscious and wants to have the search string listing the relevant search fields.

Look forward to your reply.

Kind Regards, Carl

BuchmannDesign

No, the search is more like: http://www.test.co.za/search-results/ But that said, I’m not an SEO expert, but your desired URL seems irrelevant. Google, when it crawls the web isn’t going to do various searches on its own, so even if the URL was like you want, it would never see that. But probably your client knows way more than this than I do, haha. But bottom line, no, the URL does not do that.

Default-user

Thanks for the reply! I am a bit of knob! Not the search results but the single car listings, eg http://www.test.co.za/bmw/black-bmw-m5-2-door.

Hope this makes more sense.

BuchmannDesign

Oh. Ok, it’s like this: http://www.test.co.za/listing/black-bmw-m5-2-door. (the “listing” part of the URL must be there, as that’s the name of the custom post type that the theme uses)

Hi, is possible to translate the theme for Portuguese-br?

I really like the theme, but I do not like to have it as a responsive theme. Is that an option where I can disable this feature and have it just a standar site. Please let me know, thanks

:)

BuchmannDesign

Yes, there is an option to disable responsiveness in Theme Options.

Quick question.

The Contact Form 7 plugin is an important ‘part’ of Open Door. As 3.9 of CF7 is a major rewrite have you had any issues reported re: Open Door and CF7 3.9? Just wanted to check before I upgrade CF7 to the latest version…

ta wootty

BuchmannDesign

Thanks, I wasn’t aware that the plug in was re-written like that. I am out until this weekend, but I will check it out then.

Hi – did you get a chance to see if there are any issues with OpenDoor and the latest version of CF7 (3.9)?

BuchmannDesign

Yes, I just did. The new version doesn’t seem to work, and I’m not sure why. I guess for now don’t upgrade the plugin.

Default-user

I have emailed you a link to more info about the changes in version 3.9

Hi,

Bought your excellent Openhouse Real Estate & Automotiv car dealership about 18 months ago, I was wondering if there was and upgrade for it as Wordpress has updated several times since I purchased it.

Many Thanks

BuchmannDesign

Open house has been discontinued from Themeforest (Envato’s decision, not mine) The latest version of it is 3.3 (for Openhouse) and I think 2.3 for Automotiv. If you need me to send you my latest version, then please email me from my profile page and I’ll send you a link.

how do i add a slideshow to the home page of opendoor auto theme?

BuchmannDesign

if the slideshow area isn’t showing up (also latest listings, and other things probably isn’t there either) then check this setting: Settings -> Reading. make sure the top radio button is chosen. Make sure a “page” is not set as your default homepage. If this isn’t the solution to your problem, then please email me your WP login from my profile page and I’ll check it out.

Pre-sale Questions:

1. Does your theme work for non-USA properties? Costa Rica, South American Countries? Maps/property listings/phone numbers/addresses etc…

2. Does your theme accommodate land only listings?

BuchmannDesign

1. Yes, the theme is used all around the world.

2. Land only may need a few custom adjustments. To discuss this, please email me from my profile page.

I just purchased you theme and I’m using it here. http://pacwestrealtygroup.com

I have 2 questions.

1 – When I try to add an image to my second Realtor (Theresa) it doesn’t create her thumbnail like it did for the other Agent.

2 – How can I get the slider to work on pages? I don’t really want the blog as the homepage and would like to make a static page my home page.

Thx

Default-user

weird it didn’t post the questions.

first – the agent thumb doesn’t show up for the second agent (theresa james)

second – can I get the slide to appear on a page instead of a posts/blog page?

thx

Shawn

BuchmannDesign

1. Be sure that you upload new images for each agent, and do not choose images already in your image library. I assume this is your problem. If not, please email me your WP login info from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

2. I don’t understand what you mean. Can you instead ask your question again (more clear) by emailing me from here? http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hi I would like to reverse the colours, so rather than white for the main body of all the pages I would like to change to black. I have checked CSS and cannot find it, could you tell me where to change code please?

cheers

BuchmannDesign

In style.css, the #content selector is for the background. But if you change it to black, that means a LOT of other things will have to change also so that you can read the text, as well as make it look good. So to help out, if you’re not doing it all ready, make sure you’re using FireBug (Firefox browser) or in Chrome use Chrome Developer tools, so that you can easily pin point what CSS is being applied to any part of the site. Also note that any colors that are set from Theme Options… the code that uses those color settings are in /css/css.php. Since you’re customizing the theme, this is as far as I can go with free support.

Hi, I had a Real Estate site developed a few years ago (when this was the “OpenHouse” theme) by another developer. They did some customizations to the theme, such as adding an MLS search feature on the home page. Is it possible to upgrade that site with this new theme, or would it require a complete overhaul?

BuchmannDesign

OpenDoor is based off of Openhouse, and if there were no customizations made to Openhouse, then the transition to OpenDoor is simple. (no need to re-post listings, etc.) But since you say your theme was customized, then I imagine if you want the same again in OpenDoor, then it would have to be customized again.

Hi we recently installed the cars version on http://tgcars.chumwebs.com I have 1 question & 1 issue

Issue: the header does not render as yours does on a mobile phone – the logo and the right hand text are overlapping – have i missed something? if so could you tell me what?

Question: what is the best size of image to fit into the slider without parts of the car being cut off? as your stock images are all different sizes.

cheers

Default-user

Re the issue i should add its working correctly responsive – aside from this issue

Default-user

Forget the issue – sorted that, please just advise what size is best image to fit into slider – cheers

Hi sorry about this, I do have an issue with the header, when I change the size of text on the right of the header to H4, in mobile view it no longer hides but instead overlaps the logo. I have tried STRONG and that works fine but its not big enough. I need the H4 for the right hand strap line, so it needs to disappear when its mobile. please help

BuchmannDesign

It seems like you added an h4 element there, and that’s not disappearing on mobile. Here is what you should try. Edit /css/layout.css. You’ll see clumps of CSS code for various screen sizes. In one or more sections, add this: #headertextandsocialicons h4 {display: none !important;}

Default-user
chumwebs Purchased

Hi that worked thanks. Also my other question was what is best size image for the slider? cheers

BuchmannDesign

The slider will resize and crop your uploaded images automatically (slider uses first image for each listing). Because the slider is much wider than it is tall, the top and bottom will get cropped. Your image should be a minimum of 960px wide, and a minimum of 400px tall. If it’s in that range, the slider should crop and resize correctly with no stretching/distortion.

On the listings page the price for vehicles doesn’t show up, also mileage shows as 0 for all vehicles, and the other two spots don’t show any information. What are those 4 fields?

Default-user

I’m using WP All Import and I have no idea what those field names are.

Default-user

Got it figured out. How can I make a zero value for price show up as “Call for Price” instead of displaying $0?

BuchmannDesign

The data entry field in the the “price” is one for “custom price text. Type in “Call for Price” there.
