Hi Anna! Awesome theme :) I need to know if I can control User dashboard ‘Add New Property’ & ‘My Properties List’ according to user’s role. There will be clients and agents in my website. Clients cannot add or see listing but agents can. How should I control this ? Can you please help ?

annapx

Hi Anky,

Thank you very much for the comment.

I understand the question, but unfortunately we don’t have 2 user levels in front end.

We only have 1 user level. So, for your case, there can be only 2 scenarios as this moment:

1. - people register in front end to save favorite properties and edit their profile - and agents added manually in wp-admin and assign properties to agents from wp-admin

2. - admin allows people to register in front end to be created as agents automatically. all people are created as agents. all people have add property form and my properties list as options in admin. In this case, admin can delete manually agents profiles.

In the future we’ll expand user profiles, but for now these are the options available.

Hope it helps.

Thank you, Anna

Hi there awesome theme, question before I buy. Will I be able to place on the frontpage a colored row with wording almost like a one page look?

annapx

Hi Bernard,

Thank you very much for the nice comments. The only element similar to what you’re asking is the banner type – which you can create with the TAGLINE shortcode (this is how it looks on a page without sidebar http://wpestatetheme.org/homepage-with-header-image/).

Oh and is there a recently viewed properties feature as well?

annapx

Hi Bernard,

We don’t have this feature. It’s a nice idea, I’ll save it for future reference.

Hi everyone, I have to ask about the template, I want to create a proyect based on the search night clubs and I think that you template will be perfect for this proyect. My question is, can we change the search form? I mean, put the category that I want, like, Boys Club, Girls Club, Nights in group… instead of beds, baths, etc…

Thanks in advance!!

annapx

Hi Anabiral,

Thank you for the comment. The project looks really interesting.

About the question, yes, you can re-name categories – actions from theme options.

You can also add other fields in Advanced Search than what you see on demo. To be sure you have all the info before you buy, send me an email with the new fields you want to show in advanced search. I’ll send you a demo as test to see how it would work. My email is annapx0909@gmail.com

Hi Anna! I’m a few steps away from purchasing your theme, the theme would fit my needs perfectly! However, the IDX thingie is something I am unsure about. In many other themes an IDS plugin is included but in this one it’s not. How will this affect the layout/features? Can’t seem to make sense of this plugin so hope that you can help! Many thanks, Linda

annapx

Hi Linda,

Thank you very much for the questions and the comment.

We’ve built support for dsIDXpress plugin (it’s explained here how it works http://wpestatetheme.org/idx-how-it-works/) I also tested DISPLET once and the design of the plugin aligned nicely with our theme. In general, the IDX plugins should integrate ok with the team.

BUT, you have to consider that properties published from any IDX plugin are managed from the plugin features (not the theme features).

And properties added from the theme are managed with the theme features.

All WordPress themes that offer support for IDX plugins have the same limitations.

If you have more questions for me before making a decision, please contact me. I’ll be happy to assist you as much as I can. My email is annapx0909@gmail.com

Thank you Anna

Hi Anna, :)

I have a problem for feeding the post. if the description is Thai language then when feeding the post it not cut the description for that port.

The below is my shortcode: [container_content title="???????" border=""][recent_items type="articles" category_ids="" action_ids="" city_ids="" area_ids="" number="4" rows="1" link="http://localhost/home.com/blog-list/"][/recent_items]

and please see in the picture screen at http://www.uppic.com/uploads/13970167991.jpg

i hope you understand and sorry for my language.

Thanks

annapx

Hello again,

I understand the problem.

The custom excerpt is limited to 14 words, but in Thai these 14 words can be much longer than in English. You can use Custom Excerpt (i made a screenshot for you http://i.imgur.com/yP5tLv5.jpg) or you can make the excerpt words number smaller (from shortcodes.php , ~line 378. Code looks like this

} else {
    $return_string .= '

' . limit_words(get_the_excerpt(), 14) . ' ...

'; }

Talk soon, Anna

Hi, Great Theme. I want to use it but I’m wondering if it would be easy to change the City/Area search to County/Town. I assume it would be some changes to the labels in the front end and back end, I mean, I shouldn’t have to change the core functions but only what the user see’s. Would that work ?

Thanks

annapx

Hi Webcrafty,

Thank you for the comment. You can change the labels easily with POEDIT. I usually give a hand to clients with this for free, as it takes me a couple of minutes. If you want, I can help you too.

The process is explained better here – http://wpestate.org/forums/topic/edit-labels-for-all-cities-all-states-all-listings-and-all-types-in-english/

If you need more help, please let me know.

Thank you, Anna

Thanks Anna, I’ll follow the steps in your other posts and see how I get on. I’ll get back to you if I have any trouble. Thanks John

Hi Anna, In the .po file I have found the wording I need to change. e.g. City changes to County, Area changes to City. BUT – in the .po file there are the following – City Area County State zip Country.

As far as I can tell the City and Area are used in the search/advanced search. They are ALL in the submit property form which makes things very confusing. For now all I need are the City and Area in the search, these will change to e.g. City changes to County, Area changes to City

Is there a way of editing what fields show in the submit property form. I would just like – Addrerss, for pinning on map Country, dropdown. City, which will be county after the .po change Area, which will be City after the .po change.

Zip, I dont need as we dont use them in Ireland.

Sorry for the long message but If you can understand what I mean could you help me out with this mod ?

Thanks a lot John

annapx

Hi John,

So, you want to remove options from Front End Submission. Correct?

Send me at annapx0909@gmail.com the following: - list of the items you want removed - ftp and wp-admin credentials

Hello Anna,

The question is about share-ability of property listings – Is you theme supporting something like when user is logged in By Google+ or Facebook and want’s to ’’like’’ or comment on certain property listing – is that possible? If that is possible – will Google+and Facebook streams will be updated accordingly?

Thanks, Jungle

annapx

Hi Jungle,

Thank you very much for the email. What you describe can be accomplished with a plugin.

You can use a sharing plugin, like shareaholic.com – for sharing and a plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/facebook-comments-plugin/ for facebook comments.

If you need more help, please let me know.

Before I buy this – is it possible for the admin in the Wordpress backend to approve each question sent to the property owner? I’ve tried other scripts before but people tend to spam these forms…

And….can you set it just for rent properties? No For Sale?

Thanks!

annapx

Hi!

The emails are sent directly to the owner. We have the WordPress CAPTCHA system in the backend of the forms, so the spam risk is very low. In the 8 months while the demo is up, I haven’t received 1 spam email in our contact forms :)

And yes, you can choose on RENT as category and remove SALE. Actions/categories can be edited as you want in wp-admin.

If you need more help, please let me know.

Thank you, Anna

Thanks for the reply… !

I see you can search by specific categories on a search page – but can you search by a ZIP code?

annapx

You’re very welcome :) Yes, you can add ZIP as well in search, with Advanced Search custom fields. I added for you ZIP in demo search http://wpestatetheme.org/ Type 54869 and you’ll get results. You can also use letters in zip-code.

If you need more help, please let me know.

Hi Igor,

Thank you very much for the nicest comment :)

About question 1- that is perfectly normal.

About question 2 – that should work, unless PayPal settings are incorrect or the API is created wrong. Can I have your URL? You can email me the details at annapx0909@gmail.com I’ll look over that tomorrow morning.

Anna,

I am interested in buying this theme, but have misunderstood products like this in the past. I’m hoping to perform my due diligence this time before hand… could you answer my question please?

Is the map and search bar on the homepage linked to the IDX plugin so that it is showing refreshed listings of my particular area? Or is it a map and search tool for the properties I have to manually enter into the site myself?

Thanks for your help. I bought a theme not long ago that was supposedly fully responsive and worked with my IDX provider, only to find out that the search tool and map feature was only usable on my own listings that I needed to put in one by one, rather than pulling from my real estate board MLS.

THANK YOU!

Ian

annapx

Hi Ian,

Thank you very much for the comment.

It’s very good you emailed me your questions before you buy the theme.

To answer you question, NO IDX plugin allows to merge their properties with a wordpress theme properties. It’s their business model. They have to keep their plugin properties database and features hardcoded, as otherwise people would stop buying the plugin monthly/yearly subscription.

So you won’t find a theme can do what you need out of the box. If you use a plugin, you’ll have to use that plugin features, and those can’t be merged with the theme features seamlessly.

We also built a WordPress theme to give our clients access to adding properties, pins, categories from wp-admin.

dsIDXpress is separate, comes with its own features, search, properties display, widgets. Our Map and Search is not connected to dsIDXpress search and properties.

I don’t want to overwhelm you with details. There can be ways to work directly with your MLS and not use a plugin, but it depends on how your MLS works and if you’re interested in buying custom development hours.

If you’d like me to tell you more about this you can email me at annapx0909@gmail.com

Hey Anna, I am interested in buying your theme. In the Netherlands we use IDEAL payment system. Can I implement this in your theme instead of Paypal?

See the link below. https://www.mollie.nl/betaaldiensten/ideal/

Thanks in advance, Rik

Hi Rik,

It’s very nice to meet you. Technically we can add another merchant instead of PayPal. We haven’t worked with Mollie, but I see it’s WordPress compatible, so it should work.

Please email me at annpx0909@gmail.com and I’ll send you an offer.

Thank you very much for the comment. Technically we can integrate any other merchant, but as custom development. By default the theme comes with PayPal.

Hi Anna,

I have a possible client that has purchased this theme but needs it customized. Can you tell me if there is an easy way to create the property listings in a single row format without breaking the grid layout?

I have worked with others that made it easy and am wondering if yours takes this into consideration too?

Thank you in advance.

annapx

Hi MrsReeder,

Thank you very much for purchasing the theme.

We only have the 1 single row format in User Dashboard – My Listings.

You can change the CSS and align properties differently, and you can use that page as example. If you know CSS, should be enough to change the alignment.

Hope it helps. If I can help more, I’d be happy to. Just send me a link to see the work you’ve done so far at annapx0909@gmail.com

Hello Anna,

still nothing for what regards Size – Number of rooms / Bathroom as part of listing description under thumbnail on home page?

Thank you Luca

annapx

Hi Luca,

It’s nice to hear from you. Really sorry, but I can’t tell a date. The next version is for WPML compatibility – the theme it’s being reviewed by WMPL and once they give the confirmation, that version will be released. I was hoping they would finish the review faster, but it seems they need 1-2 weeks more.

After this is done, for the following version – we’ll review this idea. Unfortunately, although it’s a great suggestion, is not something that can be done as soon as you need to.

Thank you, Anna

One question. In Properties page i see the image of featured image at the top. How can i change and show the google maps view as default view?

Thank you!

Hello!

Thank you for the comment. Without making code changes, that can be done only by choosing the small slider as option. Ex here http://wpestatetheme.org/properties/condo-240-w-98th-street/

Hi Anna, Is there anyway to move the map pointer in the Add Property form to get a closer location that the address can pin point. In rural area’s of Ireland the address could be as far away as 1 mile. I have seen this function on some other directory type themes. Thanks John

annapx

Hi Webcrafty,

We have zoom control on every map, but the submission form :) But it’s not difficult to change that.

Go in js/google_js/google_map_submit.js and change zoom: 17

This is the code


var mapOptions = {
             flat:false,
             noClear:false,
             zoom: 17,
             scrollwheel: true,
             draggable: true,
             disableDefaultUI:false,
             center: new google.maps.LatLng( listing_lat, listing_lon),
             mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
           };

Thank you, Anna

webcrafty

Thanks Anna, but what I mean is this, In rural parts of Ireland 1 area name can have many houses in it. Only the post man knows each by name lol!!. What I need is the ability to move the pin to an exact location after the address field has pinpointed an area.

For example, I put in an address of “lislea, Arigna, co Roscommon, Ireland”. Arigna is the town, lislea is the area, no house number now post code but the area contains maybe 10 houses spread out over about 15 square miles. So I would need to move the map pointer to a specific house.

Also the edit property page in the back end won’t save map coordinates or zoom level.

Thanks. John

annapx

Hi John,

For me making the edit worked. So either you have caching and you’re not loading the latest changes, or you’re not editing correctly. Zoom levels can be 1 – 20 (some areas support max 22). Since I can’t access your website, all I can do is send you the edited file with the zoom level you need. Please send me an email for that.

About the address – you can click on the map to pin the address manually. The last pin clicked is the last address saved.

Hope it helps :)

Have a great weekend! Anna

Hi Anna,

I bought this theme to redo an existing website. Is it feasible to setup this theme on a demo site with images and content and then clone everything over to the existing website? I want to reduce downtime on the existing site.

Thanks!

annapx

Hi Chiamtj,

Thank you very much for purchasing the theme.

You can create the website as it was for production on a subdomain. The move can be done easily from CPANEL (and make sure that links/pages/content) is moved to a new URL with as little downtime possible, and with as little extra work as possible. This is usually server team work (the move I mean). You should ask your hosting company if they offer such services (some do). If they don’t, write me to annapx0909@gmail.com and I’ll send you an offer to use our server team.

But you should have CPANEL access from your hosting to make sure you can do this move as easy as possible. Otherwise, you’ll have to export/import content and add manually sidebar/footer/settings/some images all over again.

Also, when you’ll do this move, the current domain should be clean, with wordpress installed, so the move is done easily and stress free from possible unexpected results caused by your current theme/database and the new theme/content/database.

Hope it helps.

Thank you Anna
