Nice theme so far. For some reason though, the nav manu is not switching to dropdown for responsive. Any ideas why?

altalhi Purchased

Loving the theme. I have a small question, on the listings the colour of the price font is green. Cant seem to find a place to change that? Could you advise on where I should be looking? Cheers

BuchmannDesign

Find this in style.css:

.price, #dsidx-listings .dsidx-price

and change the color value. Even better, add this to the Custom CSS setting in Theme Options -> Appearance:

.price, #dsidx-listings .dsidx-price {color: YOURCOLOR;}

This way, if you update the theme in the future, you will not lose the CSS customization.

Default-user

Perfect! Thanks for the help, nice and easy with the custom CSS!

Hi,

It is possible for the user to send your home / car?

You have user for test backend?

BuchmannDesign

What do you mean by “send your home/car”? Sorry, I cannot have anyone go into the Admin backend for testing.

Hi,

How do I take away the “search widget” or block at the left hand side of the page. I have turn of showing all other content like browsing etc but could not locate where to take out the search.

BuchmannDesign

Remove the code for it from index.php (for the homepage) and sidebar.php for all the sub pages. Note that with it gone, you will still need some kind of widget in the sidebar otherwise the layout will collapse.

“sidebar.php for all the sub pages. Note that with it gone, you will still need some kind of widget in the sidebar otherwise the layout will collapse.”

The sub pages that you mention here are? .. left sidebar page etc how many are there? Also how do I replace it with widget? I tried on the contact page and know what you mean by collapse.. How can I make it to be like the full page (noside bar) format you have with this theme?

BuchmannDesign

Sub pages are like the search results page, listing detail page, etc. They are hard coded to have a left side bar. There is a widgetized area called “left sidebar (not homepage)”

Great theme so far

I have purchased and installed the theme (car dealer) for a client and have realized even though there are many settings in the control panel., there does not seem to be a way to make a dark skin that features a dark body background color and light text. Many car dealers have dark websites and this is is something I hoped I would be able to control since many themes released recently have this flexibility. Is there any plans to add this flexibility so the site does not have to be a “White” background website??? This would definitely increase sales for the future since many car websites are also dark.

If you do not plan to add this, can you.

or is this something you can add as customization, and if so, what would be the cost.??

This feature would definitely take the theme to the next level in my opinion and many themes i have purchased recently have this option.

Let me know if this can be added…

Thanks and cheers

BuchmannDesign

Are you wanting everything dark, including the content area, so you would want light colored text? If you want to keep the content area light but still have a dark scheme in general, you can choose a dark color scheme in Theme Options, plus choose a dark background, header, and footer color (or use images instead).

thorsky Purchased

Yes correct I am wanting everything dark , so the main body area would be dark with white text instead of white with dark text…

BuchmannDesign

Please email me to discuss a possible customization. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hi Buchmann,

I must say the design, features, options really make it a great package.

I am decently versed with wordpress. So you wont struggle to make me understand the solution.

So here is the situation. I am making a portal where I need tabs which will involve more than one category selection Let give example here Apartments for Sale in Newyork Villas for rent in California.

So it involves 3 categories in one go, Property type+Sale/rent+Location. In case this option is not inbuilt, then kindly let me know the solution where to hit, I will manage myself the customization by your guidance.

Second issue I read the documentation And found that search feature works based on the custom fields entered in the Add Property page below the text window.

Where as browse by feature works based on the taxonomy on the right hand side of the Add Property page.

So does that mean that we will have to enter the detail in 2 places everytime? One in custom field area and one in the taxonomy area on right hand side.

BuchmannDesign

For your first question, I think I understand what you mean, and I “think” I have a good solution for you: In the taxonomy called “other”, you could create items called “Apartments for sale in New York”, and “Villas for rent in California”, etc. Then in each listing, check off the one that applies. Then create your menu item for it: Appearance -> Menus. Make sure “Other” is shown on the left side of the screen. If it’s not, go to “Screen Options” at the top right of the screen, and check off “Other”. Then add the items to a menu bar.

Second question: yes, if you want to be able to “Browse By” listings, you must check off the taxonomy terms on the right side of the listing screen. A little redundant, but it’s the only way to do this.

hi! I want add Residential or Commercial in Main menu. How to do it?

BuchmannDesign

Are you saying you want a menu item called Residential, and when you click it you see all Residential listings? And same for Commercial? If so, I can answer in detail only once I see your post with a “purchased” banner. :)

Default-user

Yes! I want add a menu item called Residential. whem click it will see all Residential listings. same for Commercial. This theme my client buy it. and he ask me add menu Residential and Commercial. I can’t do it. Please help me. Thank you!

BuchmannDesign

I really need to see the Purchased banner, even if its for your client. You’ll need to post your question here from your clients themeforest account.

Hi, I am using Openhouse Real Estate on my site http://www.usrealty.com.au/ would it be easy to move install this new theme? Also, can I update to WP 3.5 without any worries with Openhouse Real Estate? I am currently using WP 3.4.2 Thx

BuchmannDesign

What do you mean? Move the Openhouse theme to be an opendoor theme, or move openhouse to a new server? (i ask because you say openhouse, but are posting from the opendoor comments page.

Is possible use as Classifieds?

BuchmannDesign

Not possible.

Hi There

Does this theme let “users” register and post listings? Can it also work with Facebook connect – for easier user registration?

Thanks

BuchmannDesign

Yes, anyone who registers will be able to post. But for more control over who posts and other options, you should get a good membership plugin. There is no Facebook connect.

I just bought this theme, and I cant find anywhere to change the default currency, is there any? please help, thanks

BuchmannDesign

No problem. Its a setting in Theme Options > General Settings.

Happy New Year! Thanks for a fantastic 2012 :-)

Is there anyway to change the default Sq Ft to Sq Meters? by the way, I love this theme! very nice one

BuchmannDesign

Yes. It’s a Theme Options setting. I think: Theme Options -> Custom Text.

Hi, I own already the old Open House theme, but I can’t use it with WP 3.5 because of the qtranslate plugin not being updated. Anyway I find qtranslate a bit “rough” as it add too much “garbage” to the database. Pre-buy question: is this new theme WPML compatible? Thanks

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, only qTranslate. I hope the plugin will be updated soon. The reason I originally chose qTranslate, is that it doesn’t need cumbersome .po and .mo files, and possibly most importantly a single post will work for multiple languages. So no need to make a post/listing for each language, which would be a real hassle because each listing requires lots of data input plus image uploads.

Default-user

Ok, then let’s wait for the update. Meanwhile I would like to suggest you to get in touch with the guys of WPML, they are very cooperative concerning plugin/theme integration. Consider that you can set WPML to copy all data inputs and images from the original entry to the translations, so you won’t have to retype everything. Plus, the WPML is more SEO/SQL friendly.

and how to disable slider? do I need to remove it from php files? I am a newbie here, sorry

BuchmannDesign

Yes, to disable slideshow on the homepage, you must remove the 1 or 2 lines of code that call for it in index.php. Should be really easy to find and delete for a newby. :)

Hi i have a question, can we make a property page so all the property listing of my real estate agency can display ?

BuchmannDesign

In your “Browse By” section, there is an “All Listings” link. That should open up a page with all listings in it. If you want this as a separate independent menu item, then you must copy the URL for that link (just right-click on All Listings and copy the link) and go to Appearance -> Menus, and create a custom menu item. Paste in the URL, and type in a menu text, and then add it to a menu bar.
