I imported the sample data for this theme to get things started and get an idea of what it’s capable of. I note that the Ferrari listing has 2 video links. However, although I can see both videos by typing the link directly into the address bar of my browser, when I try to view the second video through my WP site I get the following error: “The uploader has not made this video available in your country”! Given my previous statement, there appears to be a bug in the popup that plays the video. Any chance of a fix please?

BuchmannDesign

It’s demo data only. I guess some things like the youtube video won’t work for everyone in all countries. For that listing, try replacing the video URL to something that will work in your country.

But the url does work in my country! If I enter the url directly into the address bar of my browser it works fine. It’s only through the theme that it doesn’t. Which kind of suggests an issue with the video popup.

BuchmannDesign

That’s odd. I have customers from the UK use the video feature regularly. Do you have this problem with any Youtube video, or only the ones you make yourself?

At the moment I’ve only looked at the two Ferrari links that came with the sample data import. They both work fine in my browser, but when I try to view them via the theme, only the first one works. The second comes up with that error message in the popup. Most odd.

BuchmannDesign

My demo doesn’t have the error for the second video. Hmmm… ok, please email me your WP login and I’ll check this out. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Unfortunately I only have the site running on a local server at the moment. I’ll try and get this live ASAP and update you if the problem persists.

BuchmannDesign

Ok, sounds good.

Hi, I upgraded WP to 3.5.1. I have added a new vehicle with a number of images by using “Create Gallery” feature. In the past, the first image file will be the “thumbnail” images but not in WP 3.5.1. Can you help ? TQ.

BuchmannDesign

Don’t use the “Create Gallery” feature in WP 3.5.1. Just upload images normally, and then close out of the upload window by clicking the “X” at top right.

I just downloaded this and having a lot of issues to install the theme onto wordpress. I looked across all websites and videos on how to install a theme. Xampp and wamp are not working for me. Please help!

BuchmannDesign

Have you unzipped the main Themeforest zip file? And then open up the OpenDoor folder, select all the files/folders in there, and create a Zip file from that? That is the Zip file that you need to upload to Wordpress. Sorry it has to be extra steps, but this is the only way I could get Themeforest to accept my theme when I upload to them. (they have an unusual zip file folder structure requirement)

Default-user

Thanks for the quick response! I have unzipped file but wordpress does not give me the option to install the theme on their site? That is why I have resorted to uploading the theme locally

BuchmannDesign

Really? You say in Wordpress Admin (in Appearance -> Themes) there is no option to upload your theme? Maybe instead, try uploading the theme manually: Wordpress makes a /themes directory. Create a new folder in there called anything you like, for example /themes/OpenDoor. Then put all the theme files and folders in there. Don’t put the zip file there, just the theme files and folders. This should work whether you’re doing it locally with Wamp/Xampp, or on a remote server.

Default-user

nope, I have the basic account, I did not pay for the premium/pro wordpress. I guess they do not have that option for the basic users? I’m super stoked on getting this all set up but it seems like I’m getting nowhere.

Default-user

please send me an email and I will show you a screenshot: joshua@cmcrealestate.net

BuchmannDesign

Hold on a seccond, you said “account”. You cannot upload themes on the WP hosted Wordpress.com. You must have your own web server (monthly fee from web hosting company like hostgator.com) and then download Wordpress from here: www.wordpress.org, and install it. See www.wordpress.org for details and installation instructions.

Is there a way to darken the gray font colors that is used? Some people are complaining that the grey is hard on their eyes and I dont see a and option to change it in theme options?

BuchmannDesign

No Theme Options setting. You’ll need to find the color setting in style.css and make it darker.

Still LOVING the theme, but another feature request. The First, Second and Third Feature drop down selections. We need more options here. I myself live in an area where we have a lot of water, so people want to know right away if its a waterfront home or not. Much before how many bedrooms the house has. I saw no way to change this easily (maybe I can editing the raw files, but prefer not too).

BuchmannDesign

That would need to be a customization. First, a new data entry box needs to be made where you specify whether or not it’s a waterfront property. Then more code to display the value where you want. Email me from here if you want to discuss a customization: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Dear John;

Can I show in property listings page, instead of Open House: March 10, 2013, 1-4pm, can I show about 20 words of excertps of the property text area? possible? ;)

BuchmannDesign

So no display of the date, and instead excerpt text? I suppose that’s possible, but that would need to be a minor paid customization. Please email me.

can we keep search option closed and only when clicked open tab?

BuchmannDesign

Yes. Simple generalized file edit would be to search /includes/search.php for “collapse on”, and remove the word “on” so the result is just “collapse”. There will be a few instance of it in that file.

tnjplt

there is not anything collapse on or off mode in includes/search.php

BuchmannDesign

Woops, sorry, I meant “collapse in” should be changed to just “collapse”

Hi. This looks great. How difficult would it be to convert it into a heavy equipment site instead of a car lot site? Would it be as simple as changing page names and some editing in the .xml file? I’m relatively able to make those-type changes but do not want to get in over my head. I wouldn’t be comfortable editing a boat-load of .php files is what I’m saying. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, it’s a boat load of php, html, and sql. I do these types of big customizations, and the cost isn’t very cheap as it takes a long time to do.

Hi there, REALLY want to purchase this theme but wanted to ask why the search facility on the left doesn’t seem to work when using the Min / Max price option in the car dealership version.

I select a maximum of $30,000 and the first car in the search results is the $600,000 ferarri plus a couple more that are more than $30,000.

Why would that be?

BuchmannDesign

Are you sure you chose $30,000 in the right dropdown? Maybe you chose that in the “min” price dropdown? I choose $30,000 in the max price dropdown, and I don’t get any results over $30,000.

Hi,

I’d like to buy the template but have concerns about its heavy use of inline CSS and Javascript in addition to the template failing W3C markup and CSS validation.

Do you intend to fix these issues in a future release? If so, when? Thank you.

BuchmannDesign

There is no inline css in the theme. Any that you see are added by various javascript scripts, for example one for the homepage slideshow. Slideshow cannot work without javascript adding css inline. For validation, it was 100% valid on approval. The 2 html warnings must have crept in during an update. If you purchase i will work hard to squish the 2. The css validation errors are from using browser specific styles. Thats totally fine and will not change that.

Hi … am planning to buy OpenHouse or OpenDoor for realestate site … need to choose between one. Liked the layout of OpenHouse though but its not responsive I guess.

Can OpenDoor be customised to look as OpenHouse easily ? Basically I need the slider and search together at top.

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, thats not possible.

Hi there, I installed the theme and demo content, however, recent comments and recent posts populate in the header. Kindly see: http://bit.ly/11GvKbo. Please let me know how these anomaly can be fixed. Thank you.

BuchmannDesign

You mean the header menu bar? That’s because you imported the demo data… That is supposed to happen. Just customize the menu items in Appearance > Menus.

One more thing … I need to know if there is any layout available for commercial property listing also. There should be 2 search forms as well if there is commercial properties e.g commercial property search form will not have bedrooms search field.

BuchmannDesign

In the Theme Options you can opt to hide the beds and baths in the search.

Dear Sir, a small question. What if I have a car that I’d like to include in the search parameters but the price? I have a product with all the specifications for the browse by and search but I don’t have the price. I’d like to leave the empty line where the price is, but not to be shown 0$ in my site. It would be nice that instead of 0€ would be shown something personalized (like n.d. or things like that)

Thank you

BuchmannDesign

Under the price field, there is a text box where you can enter any custom price text. That should get around your problem.
