Hi Dan I purchased Openhouse Real Estate in the past and I am thinking on getting the open door real estate one for a client. Is this template very customizable. Is it possible to come up with a psd design and slice it and use it with your template? Thanks S

BuchmannDesign

Its a lot more customizable than openhouse is. It would be quite a lot kf work to fit the code into a new psd design.

stoneypointe

thanks Dan. Have you seen any rad customizations of this template out there?

BuchmannDesign

I have only seen the stock theme customized from Theme Options, not a radical code change. But because the header, sides, and footer backgrounds can independently have their own color or image, the possibilities of making your own look are endless. You have far less control in OpenHouse.

My website is hickoryrealtyexecutives.com and none of the short codes are working.

http://hickoryrealtyexecutives.com/documentation/custom-shortcodes/

None of them… any suggestions?

BuchmannDesign

I replied to your email. The problem is you’re using openhouse shortcodes in opendoor.

Can you tell me what file I need to locate that contains the real estate search code (not the basic site search) so that I can disable it for now? I know there’s not a general setting to turn it completely off like there is for the “browse by:” section, but I should be able to hide/deactivate the search manually right? Thanks

BuchmannDesign

The code is in /includes/search.php

Love this theme. Looking to purchase for a dealership. I like the search features but I don’t see an inventory page on the demo. Can I place an inventory page with all of my listings?

BuchmannDesign

There is an All Listings link in the Browse By section. Or you could find the URL for that resulting page, and then make a custom menu item for it in Appearance -> Menus.

This is a great theme. I’ve been trying to hook up with Matt to find out about the autotrader integration, but I’ve not heard from him in nearly a week now. Is this email (mattwsutherland@gmail.com) still valid?

BuchmannDesign

Yeah, that’s right. I don’t know why he’s not replying. Maybe try again?

Can this or any of your listing styled themes be used for anything else, like a clothing store or model network? Does it have to be auto or home?

BuchmannDesign

It must me home or auto. As a service, I can overhaul it to be something else, but it’s a lot of work and isn’t inexpensive. (imagine 2-3 days of work)

Hi there, is the Open Door real estate system SEO friendly? keyword names pages and titles/descriptions? if not do any SEO plugins work with it? also can all the properties be exported in Xml format so they can be streamed to other agents? thanks, Jon

BuchmannDesign

It has “good” SEO support, but if you want full SEO friendliness, you should use a plugin. A lot of customers love the All In One SEO plugin. The only way to export is via Tools -> Export. (this is a standard Wordpress feature) I don’t know if the resulting XML can be streamed like you want.

Hi. I am trying to make the images on the listings on the home page clickable. I want it to be able to click on the image of the car and by clicking on the image I will go to the specific listing/page of the car (and not just by clicking on details). Is this possible?

BuchmannDesign

I’m not sure if it’s possible, but it seems likely. Assuming you want to make this change, here are some pointers. Edit /includes/slider.php, and find the code for the button. It will be wrapped by an “a” link. Use the same link code and wrap it around the large image, or the div that wraps the image. Please backup this file in case you mess up and need to revert. :)

Hi there,

I have a load of questions before I go ahead and buy this theme.

I will just list them

1. I would like a rent and a Buy pages with slightly different instances of the search function. Is this possible? As in the rent prices to be Per week and the buy to start from £50,000.

2. search function, would people be able to type in a Post Code and search via that? or is it only by areas?

3. How easy is it to add a listing?

4. On the property listings can you have the get in touch underneath property details rather than in the sidebar.

5. Can the home page alternative layouts for example i would prefer a sidebar layout so the search function would come up under main nav next to a smaller image slider, then company blurb below that

Sorry about all the questions just want to be sure before I go ahead and make the purchase.

Many thanks in advance, Adam

BuchmannDesign

1. Not possible. 2. No post code search, only by Location 3. Easy. Just enter all listing info. 4. As a paid customization 5. As a paid customization

Hello, The site is great so easy to translate, ajust and change the css!!! I recomend it to all users – its one of the best on themeforest!

I have some minor issues - the car image doesn’t work on click how to fix it? - is there an easy way to delete the search site (its not working and i don’t need it) - compare is not working eather is there a way to fix it (the id number is correct i double checked it)

BuchmannDesign

What do you mean by the image doesn’t work on click? You can delete the search by carefully editing it out of /includes/search.php. (it’s a mix of the search and browse areas, keep the browse and delete the search). Be careful and back up file before attempting. For the Compare, please email me your WP login and I’ll check it out. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

In the documentation I cannot find how to use the Columns.. as mentioned in your themeforest page..

I also cannot remove the secondary menu from the Top of the page..

The menu is not responsive, and causing a broken layout when making the browser window smaller

BuchmannDesign

I cannot do support unless I see a “Purchased” label on your post.

my friend bought it under his account i will get his info and post the question under his.

thank you

BuchmannDesign

I do trust you, but I have to do this on “principle” as there are some dishonest people out there. :) Thanks! (I don’t really mind people using my theme illegally, but I do mind spending time on supporting them, haha!)

Question on WordPress Updates. I am prompted to install Wordpress 3.5.1 now from the hosting provider. Do you have a place other than the software version entry to the right that we can check for issues and the like before updating. Or simply come here and check if anyone posted anything?

BuchmannDesign

Just check here to see if anyone posted anything. Or if a new WP version comes out, ask here if it’s okay to upgrade. These kinds of questions are usually where I hear about WP updates. :) BTW, the theme works fine with WP 3.5.1.

Does this work with Advanced Custom Fields? I see other user saying not…

BuchmannDesign

What are “Advanced” Custom Fields? Technically, the theme uses custom fields for the data entry of price, property type, etc. But you don’t create “Custom Fields”. The theme already has text boxes, dropdowns for entering price, property type, and lots more. If you want additional data entry textboxes/dropdowns, then that is normally done by editing theme files, and is typically a paid customization.

Aloha, I love the Open Door(Car) theme. Do you think there will be any problems converting it to a Vacation Rental search ? I would just have to change the search parameters in the search form and up load images of properties in my database. Yes ?

BuchmannDesign

If you’re changing the search parameters, then that would be a fairly complicated thing to do. All the search parameters are hard coded, and you can only change the label text, the items in each dropdown (in Theme Options), and you can include/exclude any of the dropdowns (in Theme Options). If you need different search parameters that are not supported in the stock theme, then that would need to be a customization.

I have three questions in the forum that have not been answered – how long does it take for support questions to be answered in the forum?

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, I am overloaded this week and the forum has suffered a bit. Will get to it soon, I promise.

I love the theme, but when I looked into the MLS plugin, it costs a monthly fee of $29.99 or the pro version for $59.99 and Im not a big fan of that. Does your theme include the plug-in in the files as well?

Thanks

BuchmannDesign

If you want MLS, you always have to pay for it. That’s why it’s a separate theme. You will need to use the standard theme version where you post your own listings, with no MLS plugin.

Hi! 1. I am trying to add video to property listing… for example youtube I tried both urls http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gABtbrq4Vg8 and http://youtu.be/gABtbrq4Vg8 did not work… What is the trick? 2. Many real estate sites give property ID so people can search by… In your theme each item is given specific numer in database can it be used for search after? 3. How can I show on homepage more that 3 items under slider? 4. Is it possible to hide rent/buy option or set one by default so people see that search is only for rent? Finally how to edit order of options in search form – what file I have to edit?

Thants for your answer and patience!

BuchmannDesign

1. Are you also adding a corresponding video image? (it’s the setting right below it) If there is not an image set, then nothing will show up on the site. 2. Not specifically. But you could use the “MLS” setting. Enter a unique number in there. Then in Theme Options -> Search, enable searching by MLS number. Also in Theme Options -> Custom Text, change the text of “MLS” to be “ID”. If this won’t work for you, then you will need a paid customization. 3. Theme Options setting somewhere 4. Just disable the rent/buy option in Theme Options. 5. Change the order of code in /includes/customsearchform-houses.php

Thanks you very much! Now I see I had to look into theme settings more… Also I just noticed in search form option “Residential or Commercial” IF “Commercial” is picked it must change values of many other options like “Property Type” , “Min Price”, “Max Price” that leads to idea separating Residential or Commercial forms from the start… Shame it cannot be done by fixing it in admin or it is possible? Maybe you know any way to get around this… Thanks!

Hi, I purchased your theme a while ago and you have been a great help to me throughout the process of me setting it up on my website. But I just arrived at a problem again…I uploaded the photos for my listing, and whenever I click them to enlarge them, it don’t show up…only a little white square and thats it. My website is (www.condohype.com)

Thanks for your help!

BuchmannDesign

Most likely you have a plugin which is causing a javascript error, which is causing the PrettyPhoto lightbox to not work right. Try deactivating all non required plugins, and then see if that helps. If so, add them back one by one until you find the bad plugin.
