Anna, Do you know of any problem that could make the “area” not display?

On my website, it is only showing the City (we changed City to display as Country). I’ve attached a couple of images showing examples of my problem. Any ideas?

I hope the images display for you. Thanks for all your help. Robert

Hi Robert,

Sorry for the confusion.

About the Address – it doesn’t affect google maps functions. As long as you have lat and long for each property, the property shows on the map with or without address. You can also click on the map to find the location of the property.

The address field is mandatory in front end submission. People have to type something in there for property to be submitted.

Thank you Anna

You’re welcome :)

Hello,

can you please clarify these questions?

1) Is it possible to add custom property features? (without code)

2) Is it possible to add custom property features to the search box located in the home page? (without code)

3) Is it possible to add custom property features to the search box located in the sidebar? (without code)

4) Is it possible for an agent to subscribe to a paid plan and submit his own listings? (without code)

5) Is it possible to create a plan that limits the amount of leads the listing owner may receive? (without code)

Thank you.

Hi Etheur,

Really sorry for the delay. Please see my reply below:

1) Is it possible to add custom property features? (without code)

—> Yes, but only text, date, number (help http://help.wpestatetheme.org/#customfields)

2) Is it possible to add custom property features to the search box located in the home page? (without code)

—> Yes, up to 8 spots are available. Help is here http://help.wpestatetheme.org/#advsearchfields). This works with the custom fields you add and with the default fields that come with the theme.

3) Is it possible to add custom property features to the search box located in the sidebar? (without code)

—> Nope. Only WPRESIDENCE, our other theme, has that – demo http://wpresidence.net/

4) Is it possible for an agent to subscribe to a paid plan and submit his own listings? (without code)

—> you can allow users to be registered and have an agent profile submitted. You can enable paid membership and give 0 free listings at registration. And users will have to upgrade to a paid package (paid with paypal) to submit listings.

5) Is it possible to create a plan that limits the amount of leads the listing owner may receive? (without code)

—> Nope. We don’t have this limitation. And we don’t recommend it either, even as custom work. How could someone confirm a contact email is a valid lead that should be substracted from a package?

—> Perhaps there is a solution, but if this is needed, is all custom development.

Thank you Anna

Hey ,

Quick questions

1) Can we have payment option membership and per listing at the same time?

2) what i find is that…agencies want to subscribe…not as individual agents. Is it possible to have agencies sign up?

Hi ootb1234,

Thank you very much for purchasing the theme.

Please see the answers to your question below:

1) Can we have payment option membership and per listing at the same time?

—> I am afraid not. The theme works with one or the other. Making both apply would require a massive change in theme code

2) what i find is that…agencies want to subscribe…not as individual agents. Is it possible to have agencies sign up?

—> We designed the theme with AGENTS posts. If you wish to rename AGENTS to AGENCIES, then I can help with that, and the same functionality that exists now will apply: if you select front end register to create “agents” posts automatically (http://help.wpestatetheme.org/#agents2), they will register as users and agents, where “agents” are re-named to Agencies.

Thank you Anna

Hello everyone

The DNS servers from Godaddy are down. And we use their DNS Servers for our domains.

This is a problem they have with many of their domains, not just ours. We can only wait for them to take action. Until they do, it’s possible our websites (demo, forum) will not be accessible.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello,

We have made a summary of the requirements for clients who wish to use our themes for thousands of listings.

This was posted in a blog post on our support site http://wpestate.org/in-case-you-have-thousands-of-listings-in-wpestate-or-wpresidence-themes/

Here is the copy:

1. You need a least a shared server (recommendation is to have a dedicated machine) with some good support from the hosting provider. The $10-$20 solutions on Bluehost or Godaddy will not work. Also many providers apply serious limitations to such hosting packages.

2. WordPress with our theme would keep without problems several thousands listings. The only bottle neck and this could slower your site is the Google Maps. More exactly is the way gather all the info for the pins.

Basically we need to go trough each property listing and get all that info (name, picture, size, category, address etc). So, first, make sure these details exist for your properties.

Even with all setting right, you may need to optimize how Google Maps gets all the info. In this case there are these solutions:

a) limit the number of the pins that appear on the map. The number depends on the server power. We have clients that are doing just fine with 2-3k pins over map, but depends on the server. The modifications are very simple and effective. We can help with that if needed.

b) switch to a system that will save all property info into a file and make Google maps read directly from file. This is a little complicated and involves having knowledge of php and javascript.

3. In the end you also need to check your third party plugins. Many of the them can dramatically decrease your site speed.

For example only WPML will make 3 times more requests to the database that any of our themes theme. So many requests can make your site get slower.

For Server Settings there are some things you can try on your own, and they will improve speed for sure (our suggestions are posted here http://wpestate.org/in-case-you-have-thousands-of-listings-in-wpestate-or-wpresidence-themes/)

Thank you and if anyone has a question, please feel free to email me at annapx0909@gmail.com

Hi SSG13,

Thank you very much for the kind feedback :)

We don’t have that option by default. You can see this forum where we tried to give instructions for this http://wpestate.org/forums/topic/disable-responsive-site/

Hope it helps.
