Discussion on Sweethome - Responsive Real Estate WordPress Theme

Love the theme. Is there any easy way to replace the property slider on the home page with a different, customizable slider? Rather than featuring property listings in the slider, we just want to feature some more general, scenic imagery. Can you recommend a plugin for this? Thanks in advance.

Hi jiminypeak, You can replace the Property slider by other (if that slider plugin support the widget), image.

A lot of free slider plugins are on wordpress.org or premiums on codecanyon.net

Hi, I purchased the template yesterday and am not happy with it, could you please direct me to a support contact that I can personally discuss the problems with? Thank you.

You can use it as a listing site or a blog or a shop site, that’s example.

Hi ernchka, That site and our theme is difference, We are afraid you would need to find a freelancer who could help you out with that. You should take a look at Envato Studio: http://studio.envato.com/ they have great and affordable freelancers.

Hi.

1. How To Translate Sweethome?
  1. Download Poedit (Windows & Mac versions available) & install it on your computer
  2. Start the software and click on the “Open” button
  3. Browse to wp-content/themes/sweethome/languages/ directory.
  4. Open the file default.po
  5. Translate each line using the Translation box
  6. Save the translated file and name it as follows: code_COUNTRYCODE (eg. en_GB.po / fr_FR.po … for more info, pls visit http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress)
  7. 2 files will be created: 1 .po file and 1 .mo file
  8. Copy those 2 files in wp-content/themes/sweethome/languages/ folder.
  9. Open wp-config.php, change define(‘WPLANG’, ’’); to define(‘WPLANG’, ‘code_COUNTRYCODE’);

2. The slider in homepage is the Property, located on Header sidebar (Appearance/Widgets/Header Sidebar)

You can remove/replace it by another slider by using the slider plugin or something else you have.

I hope that helps.

How do I create a listing page? This would be a good thing to include in the instructions….

Hi JSnyder27, you can access in Property archive page through this link

http://yoursite.com/?post_type=property

or

http://yoursite.com/property (if friendly permalink is configured).

Yes, we will describe it in next update (documentation).

Thanks.

Hi,

1) If I need to add custom fields to a property, would I be able to do that? 2) Do you support wpml? 3) If we want to be able to a) showcase a property of the month, and b) showcase a property for every monday, another different property for every tuesday. how hard would this be? will this be supported by default? If not, how hard would it be to customize it via coding?

Regards Joe

Hi Joe,

The theme use Advance Custom Field plugin, so you can create the field, but I’m afraid you have to modify the template to display it.
1) If I need to add custom fields to a property, would I be able to do that?
No, I haven’t checked the theme with WPML.
2) Do you support wpml? 
Currently, it’s not available, but I may add it in future update, thank for the suggestions.
3) If we want to be able to a) showcase a property of the month, and b) showcase a property for every monday, another different property for every tuesday. how hard would this be? will this be supported by default? If not, how hard would it be to customize it via coding?

1) With no WPML support, can we just a theme for one single non-English language, i know this might be a stupid question, but I just want to confirm. 2) Can I create a field for the property entity, i.e. Day, and the values is from Monday to Sunday. Then I use some sort of shortcode that only filters for the day currently at and show the relevant properties.

and btw we have an in-house programmer, we will be comfortable modifying the code, but we probably need you to point us in the right direction. I think we would need to extend the shortcode to do the stuff I described in point number 2 above, wouldn’t we? From your experience, how complex would it be to make this modification, in terms of man hours. Thanks!

Hi,

The theme support PO language file, so you can use poedit tool to translate it.
With no WPML support, can we just a theme for one single non-English language
NO needed, it may make wrong query, I will add the option to filter the Property in next update as:
- Show the Property in today
- Show the Property in this week.
- Show the Property in certain day.
... etc.

if you decide to make it yourself, I suggest you take a look here http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Date_Parameters

That describe the query in exactly, I hope that helps.

Default-user

yes, that’s correct.

if you use our theme on a single website then it’s all fine with that but if you wish to use it on a multiple websites then you should go with an exntended license.

Thank you so much.

Hello, Really like the professional look on the theme, but start facing bunch of problems. Most of them are logical or UI problems, I hope you can fix those. I dont want to purchase another theme.

1. I just installed the WPML plugin and there is no space for me to put selector on header section. sidebar options are really limited.

2. Prices have to be single currency but outside of the EU and USA many countries want to display 2 different currencies or want people to change the currency type depend on their own money : for example if europian customer checks my property which is in New Zealand I would like them to see EURO price of it while local people can see on their own currency. So its kind of limited.

3. Styling menu and other things are really limited as well, I wish there was more ways to play with the design.

4. Property listing doesn’t have a proper page which is really sad. I cant add anything extra.

5.Documentation is short and doesn’t give any information.

While I’m moving forward with this theme, I will add more things.

Hi BoraALAP,

1. Sweethome doesn’t compatible with WPML.

2. Unfortunately, that’s not available.

3. Can you tell me the limitation as you wrote?

4. You can access in the property page at http://domain.com/?post_type=property or http://domain.com/property (if friendly permalink is configured).

I hope that helps.
