Hello will there be any type of discount or promo for purchasers of Automotiv to switch to Opendoor?

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, it’s a different theme, so it’s a totally new purchase. Plus I have no control over the purchase process here on Themeforest.

Default-user

last question : Option of making page width full screen? If not? Could you provide CSS elements that I would need to widen ?

BuchmannDesign

It’s fixed to be 980px wide because of the responsive framework that I’m using.

Hi,

Very happy with the theme, does everything I need (for car site) but two things …

1. The method of adding models is a bit of a pain, especially as the model name has to be typed in (exactly!) each time a vehicle is listed plus when models are activated, then the front end drop-down shows ALL models added, whether there are in stock or not. Any plans to make the models feature more user-friendly and functional?

2. Is it possible to export the Vehicle Listing details into a csv for importing into a large local car sales site (where client has all his vehicles listed)?

Thanks. :)

BuchmannDesign

1. That’s the only way I have have this work. 2. Not built in. Probably is possible with some sort of export plugin.

Hello there, great theme, well done!

One Q. is it possible, when someone arrives on a listing, and likes that particular property to have a button something like “Make an Enquiry” and to fill the form for that particular property?

In principal, it will be a normal contact form with property reference already filled.

BuchmannDesign

That’s already a feature. Look in the sidebar of a listing detail page. If there is an agent for the listing, then there will be a contact form for him/her. If there is no agent, then there will be a generic contact form. The “subject” field of the form will be filled out with the name of the listing.

Default-user

Great, Thanks!

Hi

Is it possible to add a “Keyword” Search text box to the search area.

Basically a user can then just type in a keyword (or several) and then all listings with that keyword will be shown.

Thanks.

BuchmannDesign

Not possible.

Hi,

Is it possible to add car without having account? I cannot find link to do this in demo.

Regards, Blues

BuchmannDesign

The person who adds a listing (car or house) must be logged in and have a “role” that allows posting, like Admin, Author, etc.

Default-user

Would you like to provide link with form to add car to see how it is working?

BuchmannDesign

I cannot do that, but here is a short video of the screen where you add a listing (this is for real estate, but it’s similar for cars) http://screencast.com/t/OfuTW8li8Z

So will the transition be seamless if I go from Open House to this one? or will I have to create all my pages over again and upload all my content and plugins again…..

BuchmannDesign

You will need to do a lot of the “setup” again, but you won’t need to re-do any listings, posts, pages, etc as that’s all stored in the WP database and is totally separate from theme files. I think going from Openhouse to Opendoor is much less work than starting either theme from scratch.

hi, is there a way to keep the “browse by” always extended in default?

BuchmannDesign

Yes, but it’s a minor tweak in a php file. Please post this question in my forum, so the thread will help out many others, as this question has come up a few times.

hi there, I change the currency of my website and the search form is giving me error. Let me say I have a property worth of 5.000.000.000, and I use min price 2.000.000.000 and max price 5.000.000.000 it wont show up

If I use min price 1.000.000.000 and max price 5.000.000.000 it shows up whats wrong? please help

BuchmannDesign

Hmmm… I will check this out if you email me from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign In the email, please send me your WP login.

it seems I have to double click button search to get the result, the first result is “not found” and I click search again, and the result shows up

BuchmannDesign

I’ve never heard of that problem before. Please email me your WP login and I’ll check this out. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

I found whats wrong, I cant use translated page for search results, it has to be a single title

BuchmannDesign

Ah, ok, thanks.

I am considering Open Door for a used car dealer.

The features list possible Autotrader and Cars.com integration… what about Craigslist?

For example, Gorillathemes has a car dealer theme with a Craigslist feature described thus:

“With the included Craigslist integration in the Premium and Deluxe theme packages on the WordPress Car Dealer theme you can copy and paste the pre-formatted code from the Craigslist Code Generator module and have beautiful ads formatted on your Craigslist account ready to publish.”

Can Open Door do anything like this?

Thank you,

Bill

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, no Craigslist support.

Just purchased the theme and so far loving it except I am having a couple of issues.

1.) I am located in Canada, and when I add a listing I only have the option of US states, I have added locations relative to my area in the Property Locations page, but I would like to be able to use the drop down feature on the listings.

2.) Also when you add listing, how can I add more property types to the drop down menu to be included in the search? Again I have added a bunch but they just don’t show up in the drop down menu or anywhere else on the site.

BuchmannDesign

1. When you add a listing, there should be a dropdown with all your locations to choose from. If this isn’t what is happening, I will check this out if you send me your WP login. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

2. You add property types in Theme Options. They should definitely be showing up in the dropdown when you add/edit a listing. If not, then send me your WP login and I’ll check this out.

Found where to change this, ;)

BuchmannDesign

Ah, I should have read this first, haha!

I purchased your theme and I uploaded it through WP and it said that I was missing style.css file , any suggestions on what I am doing wrong?

Thanks,

Brennan

BuchmannDesign

You probably didn’t unzip the main Themeforest zip file first. You need to unzip it, then go into the “opendoor” folder, Select All, then zip up those files, and then upload that zip file.

Default-user

Yes I did unzip the main file first, then I took all of the files from each sub folder within the the open door folder, then I zipped it up and then uploaded and it gave me that error.

Thanks, Brennan

BuchmannDesign

Have you tried uploading the theme files (unzipped ones) via FTP? If you don’t know how to do that, but you do have your FTP login info, I invite you to email me your FTP login info, and I’ll upload manually for you. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign

Hi sir Buchman,

I am interesting in this template. I have bought the older version (openhouse) and i liked it very much. I have such question:

- can I do the same changes of “openhouse” template? - can I change the language easily? - can i put in the menu “all listings” and the sub.category as engine-size, manufacturer, mileage, model year … etc ? - can I chose to put a short description in the homepage and recent listings? (as open house) - can I reduce the height of header… ?

thank you so much :) best regards

BuchmannDesign

Most of the Openhouse functionality has been ported over to OpenDoor. For language, will you have a single alternate language or multiple languages? OpenDoor handles single and multiple languages in the same theme. If you want All Listings, and all the Browse By categories to be in the menu bar instead of where it is by default, you can do that, but you must manually create the menu items in Appearance -> Menus. Recent listings is on the homepage by default. For the short description, there is a homepage section for widgets. So you can add a “text” widget and put in your description there. But you cannot have the text description on the left with listings to the right. Header height can be adjusted in Theme Options.

aikido

ok Sir Buchman. No i need just one language… but i need to translate the back-end and front-end. I remember that for to translate the back-end of old template i modified some files php… and it was easy.

It is compatible with wordpress 3.51?

BuchmannDesign

Yes, it’s 3.5.1 compatible. For one language it’s very simple. All static site text is set in Theme Options. No need for a translation plugin. Like Openhouse, this theme will require you to edit php files for the backend if you want to translate it.

hi, how could the vertical images from the dummy content was scaled down perfectly in iphone screen, while my own vertical images were NOT, and the main image destroy the layout (covering the rest thumbnails and cannot click them)

BuchmannDesign

See reply below.

mustbuzz Purchased

Ah, I know it, the original pictures must be at least 750 pixel wide

it has problems doing search using multilanguage, apparently for property listing, I just can choose Property Type (Required if this is searchable) in 1 languange only, therefore if I search in different languange, it turns out zero result, Eventhough I already specified using :en and :in in Theme Options/search/property type

Thanks. I’ll check the forum soon.

I want to run a car dealer site. can this be localised to work for the UK ? Eg show prices in £

Can you set me up an admin demo ?

Thank you

BuchmannDesign
Yes, Theme Options has a setting for currency symbol. I cannot give you admin access, but here are some short videos that should help (they’re for the real estate mode, but for you it’s very similar): http://screencast.com/t/w3Wto7gvFTja http://screencast.com/t/OfuTW8li8Z

Hello Buchmann :) I just purchased your beautiful work and i love it. Im having a little problem when i active the qtranslate plugin, it takes the footer content to the top of the screen, i think that i places the footer content in the same place that it has to show the qtranslate icons. And if i deactivate the qtranslate everything goes back to normality. Can i have some help here please? Thank you and good day.

BuchmannDesign

I’m not sure what’s wrong. But I will check this out soon if you send me your WP login. Send from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign
