Hi. Is this theme ready for .mo & .po translations? I already have the real state theme, but if I can use this translation files on this theme I’ll buy it for sure! Thanks

BuchmannDesign

You actually don’t need to use those files in this theme. You translate static text in one or more languages in Theme Options. See documentation to learn how this works. Documentation is in the demo menu bar.

Hi Buchmann,

Can the sidebar be placed on the right?

Thanks, Lynn

p.s. I know the brunette “Jill Smith.” Seriously. Sweet gal.

BuchmannDesign

You literally know the woman in the photo? haha! :) I assume you mean the search/browse sidebar? If so, no, it’s fixed to the left.

nodadenada

Indeed I know her. Another question: Can other elements (widgets) be added to the “search/browse” sidebar? Bummer about its only left positioning. May be a deal breaker – or else I’ll have some re-coding to do. Do you have plans to add left-right flexibility to the “search/browse” sidebar?

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, no plans as of now.

Great looking theme, quick question before I purchase: Is it possible to have a page with all available car listings? I didn’t see it in your demo.

BuchmannDesign

Go to the Browse By button and choose “All Listings”. You can also create a custom menu item to go to that same page.

Hello,

I am trying to set up this theme. I have purchased/downloaded the theme from Themeforest and I have followed your instructions. And whether I manually upload the files via FTP or try to do it through Wordpress Theme Installer, I have no luck. I unzipped the Themeforest file. I tried zipping the “OpenDoor” folder and upload but no luck. I also opened the folder, highlighted everything and created a new .zip called OpenDoor.zip. But again this did not work (I didn’t expect it to since the first didn’t). I also tried the 1.1.1 patch before hand to see if that would make it work and still nothing… When i did the manual upload it allowed me to “Activate” but this failed completely and I couldn’t even use my admin panel.

Thanks, Mitch

BuchmannDesign

You posted this in the forum, right? I replied to you asking you to send me your WP and FTP login info and that I’l look into it.

Hi there, how exactly can I make the site do related listings. I couldnt see it in the documentation or the add property listing post option?

I see your demo has it working?

thanks

BuchmannDesign

Related listings works automatically. It just shows other listings with the same property type (in real estate site), or body type (in car sales site).

I’m sorry, this is probably a dumb question, but I have read through the manual several times and do not see how to actually set up your home page so that you can see the slider/calls to action/etc

would appreciate the heads up, I’m sure its a simple fix

BuchmannDesign

The slider will just show up automatically as soon as you post a listing. The Call to Action section is set up in Theme Options -> Call to Action. If you are still stumped, then maybe your install didn’t go well. You can then email me directly and I’ll help you out. Send the email from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hello There, didnt yet install it but i am wondering if you already know if it will work with wordpress 3.5 ? Thanks

BuchmannDesign

Its not tested with 3.5, so i can’t tell you. But obviously if there will be issues with it, i will fix them ASAP.

BuchmannDesign

I just updated the demo with WP 3.5, and it works fine.

Default-user

Thank you, so i’m gonna update to 3.5 again good job for that template, i will write and rate it when i will finish my website with it

BuchmannDesign

Ok, sounds good, thanks.

Default-user

please can you check this http://s445700389.onlinehome.fr i dont know why on th eheader it show the text link under the logo. thanks

BuchmannDesign

I think you put the standard WP search widget into the widgetized area intended for the qTranslate language switcher. That would explain the placement of it. If you are going to use the qTranslate plugin, be sure the language switcher widget goes there. If you’re not using the qTranslate plugin, then just make sure no widget is in that widgetized area.

Default-user

Hi Back, i’m sorry but i was putting some stuff, and from one point i dont know what the slider doesnt show up any more image from listing either if i create a slideshow image.. any help please?

BuchmannDesign

Please email me your WP login, and a summary of your problem from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign (this comments section isn’t the best place for this kind of support)

Default-user

ok email sent ;)

Thanks, I will get to your email shortly.

Hello, Love the template!!!

I just set up the Car Dealer and I’m having some issues during the set up process and simply cannot figure out how to resolve. I updated Wordpress to 3.5 and a couple issues resolved themsleves but new ones appeared. Please advise on the following…

1) Contact short code- each time I access the template settings to modify, the contact form short code deletes half of the code. I have to copy & paste to reinsert the code so that the form appears under the listing. Is there a trick to make the code remain?

2) Search – I could not get the “search” function to work properly before the Wordpress 3.5 update. Each time I searched, the page refreshed and showed all the listings instead of the requested search. After the Wordpress 3.5 update, all searches returns a 404 page error. I would like to use the funciton but will delete if need be. Need guidance on deleting.

3) Browse by – “Browse by” worked perfectly before the Wordpres 3.5 update. Now when you click on “All Listings” it returns a 404 page error.

4) Page Navigation – Before the Wordpress update, the navigation did not show up. After the update, it is posted but is not directing to the next page of listings. Instead, it is directing to a site map page. I set up the search results page and noted to return all search results to that page but it does not work for each search function.

Any assistance and guidance in resolving the above is greatly apprecated!!!

BuchmannDesign

1. Replace add double quote characters with single quote characters. 2, 3, 4. I have no issues with these features after upgrading to WP 3.5 this morning. Please email me your WP login and I’ll check your site out. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Default-user

I figured it out…to correct the search function page return, I entered the url of the results page to the “search page results id” space under miscellaneous tab in the theme settings.

Thanks

BuchmannDesign

Ah, great, thanks for finding that rarely used option, and figuring it out. :)

this is a great car dealer theme for computers and laptops, i just sent it to a few clients to see if they want it, but it has a long way to go on mobile. you can call that responsive but you can’t make out anything besides the pictures. the search feature is a joke, way too small. need to work on that and this theme will be amazing.

BuchmannDesign

Thanks for the feedback!

Hello – I am very interested in this theme for a client’s car sales site. Am I permitted to install on my dev server and then when complete, transfer to the clients hosting? I will obviously delete it from my server when the transfer is complete.

Also, please confirm that I can change currency to GBP – £.

Many Thanks Kevin

BuchmannDesign

Yes, of course you can do that! :) You change the currency symbol right in Theme Options.

where is the compare listings button? for the life of me I can’t find how to compare two or more items? i tick the compare checkboxes… then… nothing? where is the submit compare button or link?

BuchmannDesign

Funny, you’re the first to ask this! Just click on the text that says compare, no need for a button.

Default-user

Aha… okay so one more question, how do I compare listing 1 on page 1 with listing say, 1 on page 2? possible or not? that means listing 1 and listing 7 (since there’s 6 max per page). I am viewing all available listings (11) and would like to compare listing from page 1 and 2. UNLESS there is an option / dropdown menu to select how many listings per page for the user (I assume you can already select this in the admin, but unless it’s configurable for the user it’s an issue)

BuchmannDesign

You can only compare listings that are found on the same page.

It would be absolutely awesome if you can setup the theme like a classifieds auto website. So customer can actually fill in a from regarding their vehicle and with webmaster approval, make it live.

Is that something that you can do with regards to custom work? How much will it cost approx. for you to do that?

Otherwise, I have been using the automotiv theme and it is amazing. Thanks!

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, that can’t be done as a customization.

Can a search be created that allows multiple selections from a list of features a property must have: for example pool + air-con + patio + double garage + feature x + feature y etc ?

BuchmannDesign

That is not possible.

Is there a vehicle listing page where visitor can view all the vehicles in one page rather than searching or browsing by categories?

Thanks

BuchmannDesign

Yes, under the Browse By button, there is an “All Listings” item. You can also use that same URL to make a custom menu item in Appearance -> Menus.

I am ready to purchase Open door template. We might want to add the IDX from Diverse Solutions, however maybe we will not want to have the monthly fee. My question is, if I purchase the template without IDX can I add it later? Will there be an additional fee to add it later? and will adding the IDX service later cause any problems with the website look and feel?

Second question; This theme demo shows several pictures and icons, are these icons usable for buyers to keep on their website, or are they copy-written?

BuchmannDesign

You can add the plugin at any time seamlessly. Just install the plugin, and get the search to be on the left side. (Theme Options setting). Your existing listings will still work in the homepage slideshow, and you can still find them in the Browse By section like you can without using the dsIDXpress plugin. Once you add the dsIDXpress plugin, it will have the same look/feel as the demo that uses it.

All icons are free to use as you wish. All photos are demo home photos, so I doubt you’ll want to use them for your own listings. :)

I have purchase/install this theme – Regular Licence for my client’s automotive website

It is a great theme. And I want to use it for my own real estate website. Do I need to purchase a separate Regular Licence for my own website? or can I use back the same licence?

Thanks

BuchmannDesign

As it’s a different site, you are supposed to buy another license.

Hi – I’m loving this template and almost have it configured for Auto Sales :-)

Can you tell me is it possible to have the SlideShow ‘crop’ the image rather than ‘stretch’ it? If we upload an image (640×480) that is not proportionally the same as the slide-show display it gets stretched and obviously does not look good!

Many Thanks ~Kevin

BuchmannDesign

You need the width of the image to be at least 960px, otherwise you will lose quality as the image gets stretched larger. Also, I think at this width it will proportionally sale correctly. Note: if you have the latest version, there is a setting when creating your listing, where you can optionally set a specific slideshow image. If non is chosen, then the it will take the first in your set of listing uploads.

Understood – Thank you.

How do I remove the archives, categories and meta sections as well as the recent posts, recent comments and the calendar off the home page?

I found out to remove these from the sub pages but I would like to remove these from the front page as well.

BuchmannDesign

You must have those set as widgets. Check Appearance -> Widgets and remove them.

Default-user

Thank you, that did fix it. Two more questions, is it possible to adjust the overall width of the template to be slightly larger?

Also, can I customize the fields in the Browse By and Search sections to my own custom fields? I’m using your theme for a vacation rentals website so while overall it works very well, there’s some fields I need to customize because it doesn’t apply directly.

Default-user

Sorry, one more question. Is there a way to integrate reviews from TripAdvisor or similar sites into this theme?

BuchmannDesign

You cannot change the site width as it’s using a very specificly measured out “responsive” framework.

Changing the browse by normally is a paid customization since there are lots of php coding changes. Changing the search is a much more difficult customization, but possible. For paid customization pricing and details, please email me from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

I don’t know of any way to integrate TripAdvisor.
