Hi,

I am interested in buying this template and i have a pre sale question,

Does your theme support: - custom fields for properties (like: Airconditioned, Pets allowed, Swimming pool and so on) - custom search (filtering on properties) - live search / filter

Kind regards,

Hakan Aydin

Hi Hakan

Thank you for the comment.

We don’t have features and amenities in search.

custom search (filtering on properties) - live search / filter

—> I don’t know what this means exactly. But if you mean ajax search over map while you select filters, we don’t have.

Thank you Anna

Fatal error: Call to undefined function utf8_encode() in docs/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/image.php on line 400

om import democontent

Hi Denis

Thank you very much for purchasing the theme. This error is not theme related as the path is showing a wordpress file.

I googled it and I found this http://www.phpmyvisites.us/faq/following-error-messages-pages-fatal-error-undefined-function-42.html

I believe this hosting fix will solve the import error:

This is because the php-xml package is missing in your php installation. Ask your Web hosting provider to install that package.

This must be fixed on hosting side. But once it’s fixed, if you need help importing demo – please open a private support ticket here and we will help with this – http://support.wpestate.org/

Thank you Anna

Hi,I’ve some questions:

-is it possible to make some custom fields “visible” or “not visible” on front end? some informations are used by us only inside our agency.

-is it possible to set to “not visible” the features not checked or selected? (remore from frontend empty fields)

Tks

Hi Alex

Thank you for the questions. Please see my answers below:

-is it possible to make some custom fields “visible” or “not visible” on front end? some informations are used by us only inside our agency.

—> We don’t have that option I am afraid. It would require custom development.

-is it possible to set to “not visible” the features not checked or selected? (remore from frontend empty fields)

—> Yes. That is an option.

Thank you Anna

Really interested in buying this, and i have a pre-sale qns,

is it possible to add rating and review system in the wpestate booking module?

annapx

Hi Elwin,

Thank you very much for the message. For now you’d need a plugin. I found this one free https://wordpress.org/plugins/comment-rating-field-plugin/screenshots/ There may be others paid that work with custom posts.

For this free plugin, if you need to enable comments on properties, we have a forum for that. It is really easy to do, even if it’s a code modification.

In the future we will look into developing a rating plugin of our own.

Hope this helps.

Thank you, Anna

Hello Anna

ON the Homepage v3 is it possible to have sidebar too?

Can i customize Homepage v3?

Thanks

annapx

Hi Eddie,

The pages from demo are created manually with page settings + theme shortcodes. You can add sidebar, and you can edit the page shortcodes or content as you wish.

Thank you, Anna

Hello,

First, I would like to say you have a wonderful theme here and i have been recommending it to my friends since I found it on here.

I want to ask, will it be possible at the package side of the website that after a customer purchases a particular package, they can add extra stand alone features to their packages?

Thanks, Oniks Designs

annapx

Hi Oniks Designs,

Thank you very much for the comment. I am grateful for your help.

Packages are as described in the theme demo. A paid package can include listings included, of which you can select x number to be featured.

As payment gateways work (PayPal and Stripe) – each user can have active max 1 paid package at one time.

So the extra features could not be incorporated outside a package.

Perhaps the changes you wish could be added in the package itself, but these modifications in package are very complex. They would have to be added as custom work, if possible. I can explain how we usually work with custom work in private – you can open a ticket here if you wish to know more – http://support.wpestate.org/

Thank you Anna

Hello Anna.

I am looking to build a rental platform and I happened to see your theme which has almost everything I need. I want to use the theme as a short term rental platform and I need additional functions:

I wonder whether it is possible to automate the online booking process: guests pick their dates and pay online.

I also wonder whether it is possible to add a function to enable administrator withhold the payment until the guest checks out and keep a security deposit from the guests for the period of their stay based on the hosts request.

I really appreciate your response. Thanks!

annapx

Hi Suzanbrown,

Thank you very much for the interest in our theme. Please see my answer below:

I wonder whether it is possible to automate the online booking process: guests pick their dates and pay online.

-> We don’t have guest booking as all bookings are saved by username in the database.

-> Username can be assigned only to registered users.

> For this reason, this could not be implemented, not even as custom work. The entire booking system is built on registered users.

I also wonder whether it is possible to add a function to enable administrator withhold the payment until the guest checks out and keep a security deposit from the guests for the period of their stay based on the hosts request.

-> We don’t have what you describe, We have what is describe below. I am not sure if it is what you wish though.

-> The theme can process an admin booking fee (which is a % of total invoice, excluding city fee or cleaning fee). This fee is set in % value by Admin and it’s sent to Admin account (Stripe and/or PayPal).

-> Once he receives this site fee, the money are all his to spend.

Thank you, Anna

Hi I have a pre-sales question please.

I’m looking for a similar functionality (user pays to advert their product).

Can the theme be used to sell/advertise say cars / bikes rather than properties?

Can the taxonomies / Custom post types be modified to suit those products rather than property?

Also tried the demo login details – wont let me login

Thanks PB

annapx

Hi PB,

Thank you very much for the comment.

Please see my answers below:

I’m looking for a similar functionality (user pays to advert their product).

—> Ok.

Can the theme be used to sell/advertise say cars / bikes rather than properties?

-> I honestly don’t know what to tell you as I don’t know what is required to sell cars or bikes.

-> The property page + submission form have some details coded in the template. Some details (like features and amenities, actions, categories, status, property details custom) can be edited by you. Some are default (address, rooms, bedrooms, size. If you need to remove details, rename – you can. But some changes (depends on what you need) require coding. So it all depends on your needs.

Can the taxonomies / Custom post types be modified to suit those products rather than property?

—> Those are managed from admin. I can send you a demo in admin if you wish. Please email me at annapx0909@gmail.com

Also tried the demo login details – wont let me login

-> Someone changed password :) Please test again – http://wpestatetheme.org/login/ I reset the password back to 1234

Thank you, Anna

how difficult would it be to integrate with this api….instead of using IDX, pull from this: http://streeteasy.com/api/info

annapx

Hi vegasphotog,

Thank you for the comment.

I can not confirm how easy or difficult it is and what is required. This would have to be researched by my partners. If this will be possible, it would require custom work time.

If you wish to know more about our custom work process and if this could be done, please open a private ticket here – http://support.wpestate.org/

And please have patience as we have a fully booked schedule and custom work requests take time to be answered.

Thank you Anna

Anna, thanks a lot for the quick response!

Based on what you said, if a user is registered and picks a date, then it can pay directly to the owner of the property who has also registered and posted his / her calendar. Am I right?

So the only way to withhold the payment till the check out date is to set the commission percentage to 100% and then pay the owner after the check out date. Am I right?

I basically needs what Airbnb does. Can you build something close to it?

Thanks so so much !

annapx

Hi Suzanbrown,

Please read my reply below:

Based on what you said, if a user is registered and picks a date, then it can pay directly to the owner of the property who has also registered and posted his / her calendar. Am I right?

—> This is not correct.

—> User is registered, picks a date – sends booking.

—> Property owner reviews request, edits invoice and sends confirmation.

—> User receives the invoice.

—> User pays the downpayment fee – which goes to ADMIN (not owner).

-> Booking is confirmed when payment is made and processed (meaning money arrive in Admin Account)

So the only way to withhold the payment till the check out date is to set the commission percentage to 100% and then pay the owner after the check out date. Am I right?

-> Yes, that would be the way. BUT, you must be in contact with owner to know where to send him the payment as we have no form for him to add this info in his account. Also, your % fee as admin would be difficult to track in invoices if you use it to take the entire payment from user.

-> Perhaps you will need some custom work for this.

I basically needs what Airbnb does. Can you build something close to it?

-> AIRBNB has hundred of hours of development in managing payments to owners as you wish. We have spent a few hundred hours to get here already:), but expanding to copy AIRBNB payment system to owners is not on the road map for our product as core. At least not yet.

Thank you, Anna

Hi,

just one question: Do I Need a separate mysql or similar database in the backend to handle the whole user database and acitivites in terms of uploading houses and managing requests?

annapx

Hello,

Default mysql from WordPress is enough. You don’t to add anything extra.

Thank you, Anna

Anna Thanks so much for the response!

I am trying to get my head around the payment part. Let’s use an example: - User makes a reservation for 10 days at $100 per day. Total $1000 -The request goes to the owner and the owner approves the reservation and asks for 50% down payment. - The user then will pay the $500 down payment which goes to the Admin. - At this point , the admin can either deduct its commission and send the rest of the fund to the owner or can set the commission to 100% and keep the whole deposit and release it later to the owner.

Am I right up to this point ?

- How the user will pay the rest of the fund?

annapx

Hi Suzan,

I can give you a link to see admin and understand the possibilities if my answer is not enough. You can email me at annapx0909@gmail.com for the credentials.

I  am trying to get my head around the payment part. Let’s use an example: - User makes a reservation for 10 days at $100 per day. Total $1000 -

—> Clear.

The request goes to the owner and the owner approves the reservation and asks for 50% down payment.

-> Owner cannot ask 50% downpayment. This feature does not exist.

-> Site Admin can ask a fee which is just for him only and applies globally to all invoices issued by owners. That is the payment required for booking to be confirmed in this case.

- The user then will pay the $500 down payment which goes to the Admin.

—> If Admin sets 50% fee, he can receive this downpayment.

- At this point , the admin can either deduct its commission and send the rest of the fund to the owner or can set the commission to 100% and keep the whole deposit and release it later to the owner.

-> Correct, BUT the fee does not apply for CITY FEE or CLEANING FEE. So if those are part of the invoice total, there will still be something left to be paid.

Am I right up to this point ?

-> Yes, but please keep in mind my comments.

- How the user will pay the rest of the fund?

-> For this we have no feature in the theme. -> This is up to owner how he wishes to get paid, but there is not theme control for this which Admin has to supervise.

Hope I explained well. My offer above stands if you wish to review admin based on the video tutorials, so you have everything clear before you buy.

Thank you, Anna

Hi Anna, I like your themes but I have few questions: I know that they are both your babies :-) What is the main difference between WP Residence and WP Estate. Bootstrap and Zillow Estimate are the ones that I noticed. Which one is more complete for Front End Property Update and Member Reviews/Ratings? If you can’t do Reviews/Rating how difficult is it to add this? How would would I get the “Extended View Full Licence” prices? Thanks in advance

Regards

annapx

Hi aakavous,

Thank you very much for your interest in our themes :)

Please see my answer below:

What is the main difference between WP Residence and WP Estate.

-> Please see this forum post which lists the differences. http://wpestate.org/forums/topic/difference-between-estate-and-wp-residence/

Bootstrap and Zillow Estimate are the ones that I noticed.

—> Bootstrap is just for WP RESIDENCE>

—> Zillow Estimate is in both.

Which one is more complete for Front End Property Update and Member Reviews/Ratings?

—> We don’t have Member Reviews yet in neither theme. —> Front end submission is almost the same regarding functionality. The difference is 1.07 update which in Residence adds Google Address Auto-complete for Address, City, Area, State, Zip and County.

If you can’t do Reviews/Rating how difficult is it to add this? How would would I get the “Extended View Full Licence” prices?

-> We can do, we just didn’t get to this item on the to do list yet. There are rating plugins that can be used as third party. There are free and paid. Depends on what you need now. But if the plugin works with custom post (for property) will apply on property. If the plugin supports comments from registered users with subscriber level, works for registered members as well.

If you have more questions please let me know.

Thank you, Anna

Default-user

Thanks for your quick reply. From your forum’s link I guess “WP RESIDENCE” is more suited to my needs.

One more question for me is can we redirect emails and texts between tenants and hosts through internal mails without disclosing their numbers and emails. I could not fined the price and details of the Extended licence, I will go ahead and purchase the theme :bigsmile: Regards

annapx

Hi aakavous,

Unfortunately the emails are external and they go to agent email address. They are not saved in the theme database. Admin can get a copy of each email sent.

You need a message system (internal) but that comes only with booking enabled in WP ESTATE.

We don’t offer extended license. If you wish to make money with the theme on your domain, default license is enough.

If you wish to use our code to create a theme of your own and sell that as your product – you would need the extended license. But we don’t allow this intentionally because we don’t want anyone else to use our code.

Thank you Anna

Anna, I sent an email to your gmail so that you can send me the admin page but got a response asking to put comments here. I would love to see the admin so that I get a better understanding of the theme. Thanks!

annapx

Hi Suzan,

Email is great. I just sent you the credentials to test by email.

Hello Anna I have an odd problem. I have placed the “Latest Property Listings” widget in my Footer. It had been working great – linking thru to the appropriate listing pages.

But now only the right side (the text side) is a link back to the property listing. The left side (the photo side) is no longer a link.

I’m pretty sure it used be a link on both sides. Any ideas? The site is www.BlueCoveRealty.com if you want to take a look. Thanks for your help, Robert

annapx

Hi Robert,

First, let me tell you that the site is looking really nice! Great job :)

About your comment, seems like we don’t have the link over image in Recent Items listing. I don’t recall if we had this before the update or it was never in there. But I understand the usability and we will look into this for the next update.

Thank you for pointing this to us.

Best, Anna

Thank you, but having a great theme helps. Ok, I kind of thought the link was on the photo also, but maybe I’m mistaken. It would be good to have though. The odd part is that it “acts” like a link when you hover over it. Regards, Robert

Hi Robert,

I understand and we already noted this for the next update.

Whats the best way to change the URL structure from http://www.catherineandjasonbarry.com/property_action_category/sales/

to

http://www.catherineandjasonbarry.com/property-action-category/sales/

essentially removing the Underscores

annapx

Hi JPMSD,

Thank you very much for the comment.

Please try this forum steps to change permalinks:

http://wpestate.org/forums/topic/change-permalinks-in-wp-residence/

As far as I know WordPress supports ”-” for custom taxonomies permalinks. Should be tested to confirm and I can’t do this test today. Theoretically, should be no issue.

Please let me know how it goes.

Thank you and have a great Sunday!

Hello i would like to ask if i can use real estate function and booking function at the same time ex. I can list the properties for sale or for rent and for booking?

Thank you

annapx

Hi Jeann24,

Thank you very much for the question and interest in our theme.

If you enable the Booking Options, the calendar + booking + after price options (day, week or month) will show for all properties. For this reason we recommend the booking options to be used just for a booking platform. Like in this demo – http://booking.wpestatetheme.org/

The Real Estate features that allows you to present properties (any action or category you wish) is possible with this theme, but with the booking module disabled. Like in this demo http://wpestatetheme.org/

If you have more questions, please write anytime.

Thank you, Anna

Hi Anna, I read that the Property ID # (LST-111) was removed in Version 2.05? (and it’s no longer on my listing pages) But some Shortcodes ask for the ID #, where do I now find that ID?

And is there someplace in Editor to add the Property ID # back into the listing? Thanks for your great support – Robert

annapx

Hi Robert,

The ID is that given by WordPress on publish. Install the HH COLUMNS plugin and all the IDs will be visible in Lists (Properties list, categories list, agent list – all in wp-admin area). This is the easiest way to see ID.

There is a harder way, but not need to overwhelm you with this path details since the above solution is much more handy.

Let me know if you need more help.

Thank you, Anna

Hi Anna. I need a plugin to help me with the data of my clients, I need a CRM. Do you know any plugin that can adapt to wpestate? If it’s free better.

annapx

Hi,

It’s wonderful to hear from you. I hope you are well.

CRM is something we have been thinking about, we haven’t found any FREE plugins to see if we could integrate it as a third party. So I am afraid I don’t have any plugin to recommend at this point.

If you find a good one, please keep me posted.

Thank you, Anna
