Team, great theme but very disappointed. One of the main reasons this theme was purchased was because of the interactive MLS search tool bar.

Come to find out, after purchasing the theme, that this function is a seperate purchase that is ridiculously expensive. $100.00 one time fee plus a $35 fee per month was never mentioned in the “About Open-door” description area. Please address an alternative MLS Search bar without a purchase price that DOES support your theme, since you have addressed that you have built this theme around that specific plug-in.

BuchmannDesign

The description says it’s an “optional” plugin. But there is no mention of the price, so that is a good point. I guess it’s too late for you now, but i’ll update the description to say the optional plugin has a setup and monthly fee, and that you should visit their site for details. Most buyers don’t use the plugin and simply post all listings manually. dsIDXpress is the only MLS plugin that has been tested and guaranteed to work.

Edit: I see that the description does say the optional plugin has a monthly fee. I went ahead and made it it bold so its more noticable.

PROBABLY SOLVED

BuchmannDesign

Ok, good. If it’s a plugin issue then there is nothing I can do as I cannot support incompatible plugins. I’m glad that you got it sorted out. :)

Hi. I noticed that when I do a search, the COMPARE function is working. However, when my page is populated with products using the BROWSE function, the COMPARE function doesn’t work anymore and it gives me the “Not Found” error.

I also tried searching this comments section and I saw many people also experienced this problem. You did not directly gave a straight to the point answer but instead, asked for their WP login and you fix it for them. You say the solution is just to hard-code a certain link from the them files. (But I don’t have an idea which file/s to edit).

Can you please post here your solution so that people who have the same problem as mine doesn’t need to bother you to fix it for them? I can give you my WP access but I prefer you tell the solution here as I am also pressing in time. I am hoping for your kind consideration. Thank you very much.

BuchmannDesign

This should work, but a possible fix could be to change the Permalink type. If you’re not using the second Permalink type, then try that. This often fixes this issue. If this doesn’t help, then please email me your WP login from here and I’ll have a look: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Thanks for the reply. I sorted the problem by changing my permalink to the second option (which is the Day and name) as you suggested. I don’t know how it will affect the SEO, but a working website is more important to me. Cheers.

Hi. I need a “Car Keyword” search box.

I know that your plugin doesn’t have anything like that built-in. The way your theme search for cars or properties is by the use of pre-defined terms on a drop-down box.

But this time, I want a Keyword Search Box where the user can just type the keyword/s from the car or property that he is searching, then all the listings will show just like how it is in the drop-down search function of your theme.

I tried using the Wordpress’ built in Search box, but it also displays the items from the pages and blogs that I made. I want something that can display the listings only.

Any solutions you can suggest or plug-ins that you can recommend? Thank you.

BuchmannDesign

Yep you’re right, the built in Search widget will only search for “pages” and “posts”. I don’t know of any plugin. What you need would probably require custom work, but i’m not available for such work at this time.

Looking to change the optional text i the header to white. I read your post with the comment to do it in appearance, posted your code but lost my main header and the colour did to change. Thanks in advance

BuchmannDesign

I don’t know what you did, but all that is required to change that text color is to edit this selector in style.css: p#headertext. Add a property of “color: white;” Or skip style.css and add this to Theme Options -> Appearance -> Custom CSS: p#headertext {color: white;}

How do I change the SOLD page template to display 3 across like the other pages, instead of one listing per line – I am not display the map at the top.

BuchmannDesign

Ok, you must be one of the few with this problem. You’ll need to email me your FTP login information so I can edit a couple files. FTP is required because of the of files cannot be accessed within the WP Admin editor. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hi my Slider and listings are disappeared from front page, please advise cartropix.com

BuchmannDesign

I’ve never seen that before in thousands of sales. I would first see if one of your plugins is causing this. Deactivate all plugins and do a test.

Default-user

I did deactivate all plugins, and it still doing same thing

BuchmannDesign

Hmmm, I really don’t know. But I’ll check it out if you email me your site WP login from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

when buy the theme, i have to chosse into real estate and car dealership? or i can useit the 2 opcions ?

BuchmannDesign

It’s one or the other. You cannot have both at the same time.

HI just wondering if there are any work around with issues with next-gen plugin? I know someone posted about the slider and next-gen not playing nice with each other. This is happening to my website where it is not receiving fields inputted on the next-gen form.

Thanks in advanced

BuchmannDesign

Possibly… please email me from here to discuss: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hi John,

Is there an option to make this theme on a right sidebar instead?

BuchmannDesign

No option for that.

The theme is great but the lightbox is terrible (Very slow on PC and very small, ugly/useless on mobile).

If there is a way to replace that dinosaur lightbox and change to http://photoswipe.com/ I would buy the theme instantly.

If not, is there simply a way to disable the lightbox only on mobile screens?

If not, please tell me if you have future plans for an update or a replacement theme?

Thanks

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, no plans yet for a replacement lightbox.

Would this theme work for a boat dealer? Do you see any issue with trying to utilize this theme for one?

BuchmannDesign

Not without a fairly large customization. The search and most data inputs are all tailored to be for houses or cars (you choose the mode in Theme Options). If you are interested in a paid customization, please email me from here to discuss details and pricing: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

This is from dsiDXexpress The Theme you’re using for whatever reason includes the ”#anchor” at the end of of each URL, which is one happened with the one’s you provided. I’m not sure if you were able to fix that at any point but if you remove that portion and try the Links again, they seem to provide Results.

So How do I remove it?

I’m trying to figure out how to setup an IDX page. I’m using OpenDoor Theme which was designed specifically for use with the dsiDXexpress plugin. From Dashboard I go to add new IDXpage. I click on the multihouse icon and configure it for a commercial property that I know exists [idx-listings city=”Forest” statuses=”1” propertytypes=”2210” orderby=”DateAdded” orderdir=”DESC” count=”4” showlargerphotos=”true”]

http://ivy.columbiascwebsitedesign.com/idx/mls-259448-133_hwy_35_north_forest_ms_39074_fo

But What I REALLY need is a a page that will show ALL commercial property in the MLS. But I tried this, because I knew from the google map that there was one confirmed property in this city.

The results? http://ivy.columbiascwebsitedesign.com/idx/listings/commercial-test-page-icons/#headeranchor

EVEN through in the theme I have turned off search results from manual listings and have it set to IDX ONLY.

So I try to create another IDX page and use the settings at the bottom and choose IDX Data Features and Choose Commercial and add EVERY city in my MLS The results: SAME CRAP http://ivy.columbiascwebsitedesign.com/idx/listings/commercial-test-2/#headeranchor I can’t figure out how to create a simple page with simple filters that have been predefined. I can’t find any help in your forums or in the OPENDoor forums. http://ivy.columbiascwebsitedesign.com/idx/listings/commercial-test-2/

Hmmm, this seems like a complex problem that isn’t ideal to handle here in the comments. Please email me directly here and I will assist: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Pre sales question. Can I add properties dynamically via a MySQL database? We do real estate, but it’s a different kind and it can’t be integrated with MLS/IDX/RETS etc. The properties have to come from our MySQL database which is populated daily by a web scraper. Can I make this work with your theme? Thanks!

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, that’s not possible. I would be surprised if any theme on Themeforest out of the box can do this!

Hi there, Thank you for your work on this great theme! I’ve installed Car Sales and have been tweaking it whole weekend. I like the results and many many thanks to you for that! I have two issues with “Browse by” widget and hoping that you know how to resolve it. 1) When I choose “All listings” all i can see is categories but not the actual listings. And you can not extend/press any of them either… I have few listings and they are coming up in “Browse by” only if i choose manufacturer, year or other options whatever I “picked” for that listing. Here is the screen of what I’m talking about http://drivepremium.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Screen.bmp.jpg That is all that coming up one I press “All listings”. I really need this page because it is the only way you recomend to set up “Inventory” page. And second issue is 2) “Browse by” menu is always stays collapsed. is it possible to have it in extended mode by default all the time without pressing on it?

Thank you again and happy holidays!

Problem with “All listings” is solved by resetting the search page.

Please help me as soon as possible

BuchmannDesign

If you’re first vertical and then turn to be horizontal, it may do that. You need to refresh the screen.
