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?

annapx

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.

My front end property image uploading not working means it displays # in url when I click on image upload link. I m using wordpress 3.9.2

Hi!

I am sorry, but I need more information. In front end submission – click selects Featured Image.

Can you send me a link and more details at annapx0909@gmail.com?

Got it. Will check shortly and let you know my reply. Thanks. Anna

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 Anna,

annapx

Hi SSG13,

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.

Have a great weekend, Anna

Hello Anna, I have just purchased your wonderful theme and I am in love with it. I do however wish to add some other functionality to it and I would love to develop a plugin that will work specifically with this theme. So I was just wondering if You would mind if I were to make some modifications and customizations to it and Would you mind if I were to develop a plugin that would work along side this theme? Please let me know if you see any issues with this. Thank Anna, and great work on the theme. :-)

Default-user

Of course the Mods and Custom stuff would only be for my domain and would not be let out for anyone else. lol. The plugin however, we may end up selling but making more general for other real estate themes to use out there.

Hi Cableman,

Thank you very much for purchasing the theme.

Hi Anna, 1) Could you point me in the right direction on this? How do I create a Pre-Set Search list (of links) like the one you have on the WPEstate example? I’ve attached a screenshot link – the list I want to duplicate is circled in red. I have done a “Useful Links” list, but am confused on how to create the “Search Local” links so they are always pulling from current listing info. http://images2.snapfish.com/232323232%7Ffp83232%3Euqcshlukaxroqdfv73%3B%3B%3Dot%3E2378%3D3%3A9%3D845%3DXROQDF%3E2%3B3327656823%3Aot1lsi

2) is there a public forum where WPE Admins help each other thru discussions?

Thanks so much for your help, Robert

annapx

Hi Robert,

That list is created manually so it updates manually only. This is demo TEXT:

<ul> <li><a href="http://wpestatetheme.org/property_area/east-harlem/">[font_awesome icon='fa fa-map-marker' size='15px'] Properties in East Harlem</a></li> <li><a href="http://wpestatetheme.org/property_area/manhattan/">[font_awesome icon='fa fa-map-marker' size='15px'] Listings in Manhattan</a></li> <li><a href="http://wpestatetheme.org/property_area/northern-brooklyn/">[font_awesome icon='fa fa-map-marker' size='15px'] Houses in Northern Brooklyn</a></li> <li><a href="http://wpestatetheme.org/property_area/queens/">[font_awesome icon='fa fa-map-marker' size='15px'] Apartments in Queens</a></li> <li><a href="http://wpestatetheme.org/property_area/upper-east-side/">[font_awesome icon='fa fa-map-marker' size='15px'] Listings in Upper East Side</a></li> <li><a href="http://wpestatetheme.org/property_area/west-side/">[font_awesome icon='fa fa-map-marker' size='15px'] Offices in West Side</a></li> <li><a href="http://wpestatetheme.org/property_city/new-york/">[font_awesome icon='fa fa-map-marker' size='15px'] Listings in New York</a></li> <li><a href="http://wpestatetheme.org/property_city/new-jersey/">[font_awesome icon='fa fa-map-marker' size='15px'] Properties in New Jersey</a></li> </ul>

We created RECENT LISTINGS widget, with image – for listing latest properties. You can use that.

Thank you! Anna

Hi i am impressed by all the functions you have put together in this theme. May i know is this theme able to work with custom taxonomy to add extra fields to forms and page layout? What filter plugin this theme is using as currently im using another theme and the default filter system that comes with it couldn’t work at all… Also is it able to work well with W3 total cache and buddy press? Hope to hear form you soon :)

annapx

Hi Shirl

Sorry for the delay and thank you for the feedback.

I am traveling and my internet is not very good. Please see my reply below:

May i know is this theme able to work with custom taxonomy to add extra fields to forms and page layout?

—> I don’t understand the question. We have our own custom property fields that show under Property Details – on property Page. That is all we have custom.

What filter plugin this theme is using as currently im using another theme and the default filter system that comes with it couldn’t work at all…

—> We coded the entire theme. We don’t use plugins for our real estate functions (search and filters).

Also is it able to work well with W3 total cache and buddy press?

—> Buddy Press – I don’t know. Some clients used it and they said with small CSS modifications it was ok. But if you wish to merge Buddy Press with our theme – that is not a feature.

—> W3 total cache can be used, but personally I don’t like this cache plugin. I like more WP FASTEST CACHE because in settings has a clear cache button.

Thank you Anna

Dear Anna,

I just purchased your theme and want to say congratulations! Excellent work.

I have a problem and hope you will be able to help me with this.

I would like to create home-page with menu and image with advanced search form on it, copyright text and nothing else. Simple; I would like to replace google-map with still image on my home-page keeping advanced search box on it, but removing everything after this image, which helps me to disable scrolling down.

Actually, it’s easy to create. However, the problem starts when I try to keep normal look on other sub-pages; with content and footer. Because I know only how to replace google-map on sub-pages using “Replace Map with this image box”. But if I remove footer code from page.php file it will also apply to all sub-pages. I tried to do the same with home-page by editing index.php, but don’t know how to easily replace google-map in this way.

Do you have any solution? Thank you.

Default-user

OK, now I know how to delete footer and content from the home-page and keep it on sub-pages.

If you can just help me to replace google-map with still image on home-page, with advance search box on it, by editing code or in any other possible way. It would be very grateful for me :)

Thank you.

Default-user

I found it. RESOLVED!

Hi Durke.

First of all, thank you very much for purchasing the theme.

About the question, I am sure you found the Global Header options in Admin – Theme Options – Appearance :)

If you need more help, please let me know.

Thank you, Anna

Anna, I am placing some listing thumbnails on my home page. And they will link to the correct listing page of course. But how do I get the “curtain” that pops up over the thumbnail when you hover your mouse over it (prior to clicking)?

Not sure I have explained it good, so I’ve attached a link to a screen shot of the “curtain” that I want to appear over the thumbnail when a customer hovers their cursor over it. http://images2.snapfish.com/232323232%7Ffp83232%3Euqcshlukaxroqdfv%3A68%3Enu%3D3287%3E2%3B8%3E754%3EWSNRCG%3D3%3A42%3A8%3A85932%3Bnu0mrj

I was going to place three images inside 3 one-third columns. Not sure if that’s the best way to place images on the page either.

I appreciate your help as always Thanks, Robert

Anna, I am using a slider shortcode, but the images are changing height during the slide show. Do I need to make all the slider images the same size before putting them into the slider shortcode? Or is there something I can do in the code to make them all display the same? Thanks Again.

Hi everyone,

Today I have to travel. I will follow up on support questions and emails tomorrow. I’ll look over urgent items later in this evening, if possible.

Thank you Anna

Can i make multiple search forms, for multiple categories? If possible, kindly guide how.

annapx

Hi Morgan,

Thank you for the message. We only have 1 search. You can let default fields or set the custom fields from Admin – Theme Options – Advanced Search.

But there is only 1 search that syncs with widget, shotcode, mobile.

Multiple search implies hardcoding the theme, giving up custom advanced search and this must be done with custom development.

We discuss custom development only by email. If interested please drop me an email at annapx0909@gmail.com

Thank you Anna

Hi, pre sale question: It’s possible to add Woocommerce?

annapx

Hi Juampaflores,

Thank you very much for the comment. We don’t have WOOCOMMERCE compatibility and we don’t plan to add either.

Best, Anna

Thank you Anna. Another comments: - I try to login with USER and 1234 but it’s not working. - Agents can communicate with each other privately in dashboard and then save the message history? - It’s possible to add an appoinment or booking plugin? - It’s possible to add a rating plugin?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Anna,

I’m trying to import the demo xml but somehow I’m stuck at /wp-admin/admin.php?import=wordpress&step=2

it seems that i cannot do the import of the file even though I’ve contacted my host and they claimed that no error or limitation on their end. Can you please advise?

annapx

Hi Nikola

Import is related to hosting, but since there can be many settings (processes, size, number of files) maybe hosting needs more clear instructions. I can try to help with import see if partial demo and then full demo – works.

Please email me at annapx0909@gmail.com

Thank you Anna
