Hello, my website was hacked this weekend and to my host said that the problem was the theme. Can you check if no fault is found in your chart ?

I have installed the real estate theme in the site and the problem I am facing is the last property added from admin is not displaying at the first in the search result listing, please let me know how this can be achieved

Please email me your WP login from here and I’ll assist: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

I purchased this theme and it shows in my downloads that it was removed by you or staff, I would like to updates if that is possible, how would I go about doing this?

So I would have to buy this one at full price or are you offering any upgrade price for those that did support your product and would like to move to your new theme. Thanks Tomi G

I’d love to offer an upgrade price (even though it’s not an upgrade as it’s a totally different theme, haha), but all pricing and purchasing must be done through Themeforest. I have no control over the pricing.

That said, also please check out TopProducer, as this one is only a few months old and at this point will have the longer shelf life.

I’ve purchased the Open Door theme in order to upgrade OpenHouse. Are images handled differently in Open Door? They don’t seem to be deleted when the post is deleted in Open House. Maybe I should just ask how to make sure images get deleted when the post is deleted. Thanks.

They didn’t auto delete in Openhouse either. Doing that is a job for Wordpress, and I guess they don’t support that yet.

Hi. This theme is great! Someone I know purchased it and I got a chance to take a look. I am looking into purchasing it as well but was curious about the longevity of updates to it. Will you be continuing to update this theme?

I see that you also launched Top Producer. http://themeforest.net/item/top-producer-real-estate-and-top-speed-car-dealer/7048191 and I just want to be sure I am looking at purchasing a site that will have longevity of updates to it.

Thank you for your time and great themes!

OpenDoor is getting relatively old now, but will continue to get updates so it keeps working with the latest versions of Wordpress. Top Producer is only a few months old so it will definitely have the best longevity at this point.

This template is localized into other languages, for example using the library gettext (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gettext)

I need to template was translated into Russian. Alex

It is translatable to multiple languages, but not through that library. It’s actually much easier than that. The Qtranslate plugin is required, and then you simply do all your translations in Theme Options using simple qTranslate markup. So no clunky .po and .mo files are needed.

Note, if you will have the site ONLY in Russian, then qTranslate isn’t even needed. It’s only needed if you will have multiple languages. Also note, the Theme Options backend, and listings backend are only in English and cannot be translated unless you edit PHP files directly.

Hi, I have been using Open door for sometime but just got an email from my server saying qtranslate needs to be deactivated due to security issues. Installed wpml but it does not work with the theme, pls advise:

This email is a notification regarding about a security leak in the WordPress plugin “qTranslate” of your website countryproperties.eu.

The said vulnerability can be exploited to perform Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks against website administrators. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to gain complete control over the web application, if the victim visits a malicious page with XSS exploit. This vulnerability can also be used to perform drive-by-download or phishing attacks against website administrators.

Input passed via “edit” HTTP GET parameter to ”/wp-admin/options-general.php” is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. A remote attacker can trick a logged-in administrator to open a specially crafted link and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in browser in context of the vulnerable website.

As part of the resolution, since there is no newer version available yet, we advise you to uninstall the plugin or find another similar plugin.

Hi, thanks! I have deactivated qtranslate and activated qtranslate-x, it works good except the images for the properties are only displaying in english but not in other languages

There must be other things that don’t work. The theme code ties in tightly with qTranslate, so changing the theme would require theme changes. At the most complicated (for me) is the translation of items in some search dropdowns… mostly “Property Type”. I have read the Qtranslate X “migration” guide and it seems a bit tricky. But I’ll get to this soon, so just hang on! :)

Just want to say we have the same problem upgraded from 1.4 to 1.5.1 and we have the same problem as SolexBold. We open ticket and we posted in the forum. We will also swap back to the 1.4 if possible.

Hello not really the answer i was looking for my boss is on me all the time and i try to go back to 1.4 and that just shows error. Where can i download 1.4 seperate, or when can you be free to fix this, My boss will freak out he say the website is destroyed,

I’ll find time this morning or afternoon to help. I’m Eastern US time zone.

Please send me your WP login from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign I searched my email and cannot find anything “yet” under your username.

I am using OpenDoor theme, i have insert image for listing but cannot show in site, please help, thanks, i have sent you login credential too, from http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign


I have replied to your email. We can continue the support there. :)

Pre-sale question about auto trader theme, i really want to have my website similar to truecar website, so i want to ask you about search filter, can this theme have search filter like first, buyer need to select either brand or body type then if choose brand then model of that brand will come up, while choosing body type the brand that have that body type will come up and let the customer choose, something like this, , i want search filter to work step by step. because sometime it does not make sense in some case, for example ( assume that there is no convertible type in BMW) , when buyer click at brand BMW and there is convertible body type option for them to choose ( assume that there is no convertible type in BMW) just example

can this theme fix this or is there anyway for me to fix this if i use this theme , if it require any plugin to solve this please tell me thank

This type of search is not possible.

and what about did the theme support this plugin “Ultimate WordPress Auction Plugin” because i want to make militating to have bid funtion

I have no experience with that plugin, so I don’t know if it works.

Pre-sale Question 1.do you have paid customization service?

2.if i would like to have bid and auction function in each car listing, can you do that?

3. how long would it take?

4. and can you estimate the price of the customize service?

I offer paid customizations, but what you’re asking for is not possible, sorry.

I use the OpenDoor Theme for a year now, and I am satisfied, but unfortunately it does not work anymore, to show a picture in the slider. I upload the photos as new, see this one in the vehicle list, but not in the slider. The slider is chosen in the vehicle list.

Also disable all plug -ins does not help.

Any idea what it could be?

Many thanks.

Have you updated to the latest version on Themeforest? If so, that could have an issue with images if they are fairly low resolution. If so, I have a newer update not yet sent to Themeforest. Email me here and I’ll send you the link: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hello was wondering if the newest version of this theme allows for having the sidebar on the right side instead of the left….this is better for viewing vehicles details on mobile view or does the new Top Speed theme allow for this?

That’s not possible in OpenDoor. But the way it works, is stuff on the right side will collapse under stuff to the left. So if important listing details are in a right column, then on mobile, that will show up way at the bottom of the page, which is not good. That’s why in Top Speed / Top Producer, on mobile, important stuff in the right side will “move” to a higher position in the page when on mobile. If you try this out on a regular web browser, you may need to refresh the page at different sizes for the move to happen. (but this isn’t needed when you’re actually on a mobile device)


I have clients still using Open Door, (currently version 1.5.1). Will you still be updating for current versions of WordPress? Right now, the current version only supports version 4.2 of WordPress. Will there be an update for version 4.3 soon?

Yes! I’m not aware of any 4.3 problems. Please send me a message from here, and explain your 4.3 problems, and I’ll look into it very soon: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hello, I have been viewing the Open Door theme and love the features and functionality. I will be using it for Car dealership only and will be targeting South Africa. I need to know if the Currency options will be available ( price listing and loan calculator currency in ZAR) and if not, is there a way around that? I will also need to integrate a form for my clients to fill in and upload finance application documents (payslip, bank statements etc.) will be using Form Stack plugin. Is it likely to cause problems? Really looking forward to buying this theme.

Thanks for your interest in the theme! The currency “symbol” can be changed in Theme Options. This theme is being used around the world and there is never a problem with the local currency. ??

As for Form Slack plugin, I really have no idea of it’s compatibilityt, but I see no reason why there would be a problem.

Thanks for the response, much appreciated.

( ?° ?? ?°)

inglês: If you buy your theme. Has translated into Portuguese in Brazil theme settings or have to install the part ?

Português(Brazil): Se eu comprar seu tema. Tem tradução para o português brasil em configurações do tema ou tem que instalar a parte ?

Size smaller picture to put in the image gallery (Vehicle Listings) Ex.: 300×200-px

I really liked the theme , congratulations

I recommend it to everyone in the community

I have AutomotivVersion: 1.43 By Buchmann Design can I upgrade to this version without loosing my content?

You should be fine. It was built to be backward compatible. But if you use “banners” for listings, then you will need to re-set them for each listing. Also the newer “Top Speed” theme is also compatible. :) Note that Top Speed does not have VinQuery.com (optional) support.
