I’m having issues with slider for my site http://totallybarb.com not appearing in internet explorer. Can this be resolved?

BuchmannDesign

What version if IE are you using? It works fine for me!

Default-user

Cool good to know. I went to a realtor’s office to show her the website and the slider was not opening in the internet explorer.

Also when I open the site on my cell phone as soon as the page loads it exits out of the site. Is there a way to fix this?

BuchmannDesign

What type of cell phone is it? It’s been tested here on various Android and iOS devices and works fine.

Default-user

I am using an Android device. The issue is, and I just looked at it again today, is that the website comes up fine when it is loading the page but as soon as it is fully loaded, it closes out of the internet. The phone I am using is a HTC Droid Incredible 2 by Verizon which operates on Android

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, I can’t support individual phones, as that is out of my control. The theme has been tested on numerous android and iOS devices with no problems.

Default-user

Gotcha. Maybe it is just my phone. I will check on some other android/ios devices to make sure.

Is is possible for public to upload their own listing, and if yes, what will be the procedure, from the person from public point of view? Also from admin point of view?

Best regards Srdjan

BuchmannDesign

The public would have to register (link in the Login button in header), and once registered they can log in and then will be able to post. In WP, you would have to set the role that new registered users have, like Admin, Author, etc. Only people with a certain role can post listings. For example, a user with a role of “user” wouldn’t have the permission to post anything. That said, it’s a very basic login system with no filters on who can register, etc. If you want a more robust membership functionality, you will need to install a good membership plugin.

Default-user

So basically, they can not upload the images and fill up the information rooms, bathrooms, address etc., and listing to wait for moderation, something like that?

BuchmannDesign

Yes they can. If someone is “logged in”, and has the role of Author or higher, then they can post listings, upload images, etc.

Default-user

That will be useful for the new agent, not for random member of the public, as I am sure they will be able to mess up the website as well :) and not to mention, they will need to learn how the whole thing works…

Basically even with the good membership plugin, it will not be possible to add listing (without possibility to mess up the theme) because theme is not designed for those purpose, if you agree with me.

BuchmannDesign

Right, I agree. It’s not intended for the general public to post stuff.

I want to buy the car dealership theme but i want users be able to register and upload there own vehicle and all its necessary information.

You did say it was possible above in the last comment but is it easy to do?

And can you recommend a good membership plugin that would work perfectly with the theme?

BuchmannDesign
Here is a quick video of the listing backend, to give you an idea: http://screencast.com/t/OfuTW8li8Z (note, it’s for the real estate mode, but it’s very similar to the car dealer mode) I cannot recommend any membership plugs and I have no experience with them.

Nice theme! I noticed on the demo theme on my iPhone, it shows duplicate maps on a listing page. Anyway to make that not happen?

Also, when using on mobile, everything gets scaled down, and the sidebar info gets placed above all the main listing info. Anyway to make the listing info/main content area show up first and the sidebar go below it on mobile? Thanks! I’m almost ready to purchase.

BuchmannDesign

Can you post the URL that has the duplicate map? I can’t reproduce that here. I can’t do anything about the order from top to bottom, as when the browser gets narrower, stuff on the right gets collapsed under stuff to the left.

I’m interested in this theme, but I have a quick question first—is it possible to upload inventory based on a CSV file? I have a site with existing inventory that I’d need to import.

Thanks!

BuchmannDesign

Only way possible is with the wpallimport plugin (wpallimport.com). But i cannot offer support with this as i have never used it.

Hi, awesome themes. I want to know before buying:

Users can register and publish their own cars and houses?

The contact form emails on the house and car description goes to the publisher of the announce?

BuchmannDesign

Registration is really meant for Agents of a real estate company, or staff of a car dealership. So for a car dealership site, the contact form is set in Theme Options and goes to a specified email address, not to the person who posted the listing. For the real estate site, the contact form will be either a generic company email (if no Agent is set for the listing), or the Agent’s email address if an agent is set for the listing.

Hi there,

I can see that more and more people are asking for user submitted listings – is this something you’ll sooner or later integrate? A lot of similar themes and plugins actually have that integrated by now…

I’m currently using a jobboard plugin which even lets you change the frontend submission form from the backend via a visual dra&drop editor.

Maybe you could publish this as premium add-on/plugin (e.g. Codecanyon ) in order to get compensated for the additional development time.

Cheers, Thomas

Please email me from here: http://themeforest.net/user/buchmanndesign to discuss what is needed to be better for user submitted listings.

I’d like to use this theme for rentals. Is it possible to add a calendar to the property page. Also with Google Maps can you enter specific co-ordinates for the markers? Thanks.

BuchmannDesign

Possibly with a plugin, I’m not sure as I’ve never done it. Yes, you can enter Lat/Long coordinates that override the entered address.

Hi, I have purchased the automotiv theme and am considering switching to this theme, but I have a few questions before I purchase:
  • Does the theme support child themes?
  • Can I switch off the search feature and just have “browse by”?
  • Can I customise the browse by feature – I would like to be able to configure the browse to be by vehicle type (cars / motorcycles / bikes / trucks etc.)
It would seem like that none of the above is possible with automotiv, and I would be thrilled to buy opendoor if it solved these issues
BuchmannDesign

Child themes are not supported. No “switch” to turn off search, but you can edit some php code to remove the search. If you buy, I will show you what code to remove. Customization like that is not possible without custom work.

Default-user

Hi, thanks for your reply. I saw in the forum for Automotiv that most customisation requires a payment to you rather than detailed support to be able to do it independently. Is this also the case for Opendoor? – I would really like to be able to customise the “browse by” feature.

BuchmannDesign

Because removing the search is something that others may want, I can post instructions in my forum. But for the Browse By, that is a unique customization, and that is why I would need to charge a fee. That goes for Openhouse, Automotive, and OpenDoor.

before buying this theme, we would like to know, is this support wpml? from one panel many languages and properties?

BuchmannDesign

Because of the complexity of the search (with dropdowns, where each item in there needs translation, etc.) WPML was not an option from the start. qTranslate is the plugin that it requires. Good news is you do not need to use .mo and .po files, and all translations is done in the Theme Options.

Hello,

Buying this template i got both modes, open state and automotive… its possible to buy just the “automotive”?

Regards,

BuchmannDesign

It’s a single theme, with a setting in Theme Options to change modes. So you cannot buy just one mode. :)

I am trying to remove the text in the header (and the RSS icon). But, every time I try to remove it, it comes back after a while.

The text I am referring to is: Some optional text
Line 2 of optional text

Is there a way to remove this?

Thanks. Jens P. Berget

BuchmannDesign

Oh, you try to remove it completely, not just change it? If so, then try just typing in a blank space, and see if that saves. If not, edit functions.php, and find the code for it, and then remove the “std” text. To remove the RSS icon, you must edit /includes/sociallinks-header.php, and remove the line or 2 of code for RSS.

Dear Sir Madam;

Instead of address in property listing title, is it possible to show property title wrote in admin panel, property title?

BuchmannDesign

Yes, but some code changes are needed. Please email me from my profile page, and I’ll send you back info on what files and what code to edit.

Hi this looks like a really good theme (Cars Sales Mode), especially with all the features!

I have a couple questions before I purchase. 1.We have about 5 dealerships and brands that will be featured on the website, is there a way to add multiple location points on the google contact map. 2.Is there a way to send the customer inquiries of the listings to different email addresses(to the various dealerships)?

BuchmannDesign

Sorry, both are not possible.

Hi, great theme. Before purchasing it I’d like to know if:

1. I can setup a non-idx MLS PIN link to my clients’ MLS page? Would this have to be iframed? At the moment, my client is not interested in the additional IDX fees from any vendor.

2. How easy would it be to change background color and the menu design to match the look and feel of another custom created and approved template by my client?

Thanks, Josh

BuchmannDesign

If its in an iframe, you can add it to any new page. But thats all the support for that. You can easily change the background color, or image, of the header, background of site (sides of site on wide screens), and footer. But customizing the menu look and feel would be a challenge.

Default-user

Thank you for your answer. One last question. I’d like to have the OpenDoor theme features and functionality with the OpenHouse look and feel. It would be much easier to customize from the OpenHouse look and feel. Is this possible?

BuchmannDesign

You’re better off sticking with openhouse then. It has nearly all the same functionality as opendoor.

I am new to WordPress and different themes and I have a question – I think your theme would be perfect for the site I want to create, however it is not real estate or car related. Am I able to change the search criteria (ie. # of bedrooms, # of bathrooms etc.)

Thanks,

P

BuchmannDesign

That is normally done as a paid customization as its pretty complicated and time consuming to do.

Hi, I am currently using the OpenHouse Theme and was wondering how much work it would be to swap to OpenDoor Theme? Thanks

BuchmannDesign

It should be quick and easy, since all your listings are compatible in both themes. The only non compatible listing setting is the optional banner, so only that will need to be re-set for each listing. For more upgrade info, see that section at the end of the documentation. (documentation is in the very top menu bar of the demo)

1. In your demo, there is print button as we see and there is not in downloaded version!

2. there are links on homepage property listings/pictures but in your demo but in downloaded theme does not have it!

3. Just checked support forum one of buyer asked how to make listing excerpt as link to listing detail and you ask money for everything!! Details button is not findable, readable easy and buyer is right in this case!!! you must correct it

BuchmannDesign

1. Really? Hmmm… Please email me from my profile page, and I’ll send you my most recent build.

2. Have you imported the demo XML file?

3. I have no idea what you’re referring to. I do ask a fee for customizations as this is a business and cannot give away my limited time away for free. Obviously reported bugs are fixed free, and I usually help misc issues for free also. Please email me what you mean with #3, as this comments area isn’t great for support.

Great theme thus far

What are the best specs for the images used in the slide show, and? Is it located in the Documentation?

Also Im using the car dealership theme, and the contact form for a listing does not have the specific listing already defaulted. How do I correct this?

BuchmannDesign

The slideshow width is 980px wide, so you image should be at least that wide. If its wider, the theme will resize it smaller. For height, it can be anything reasonable, in relation to the width. You know by default the slideshow image is the first image in your group of images for a listing. But you can override that image by specifying an image for the slideshow as one of the settings for the listing. In that case, you could make the image exactly 980×400, which is the exact slideshow size. By the way, all this info is not in the documentation.

That should definitely work. Please email me your wp login and I’ll have a look. Send from my Themeforest profile page. Note, I will not be at a real computer until this Wednesday, so please be patient! :)
