Discussion on WP Pro Real Estate 4 Responsive WordPress Theme

440 comments found

HI I ’m thinking of buying this theme I just had a couple of questions:

1) can the search fields be added to/modified? I was thinking of adding things like pets allowed, smoking/non smoking etc 2) i was thinking of using the roles manager plugin to allow agents to upload their own properties, can you forsee any problems with this? 3) is it easy enough to change it to a uk based real estate company?

Thanks

  1. Yes, new taxonomies/search fields can be added/edited via two files.
  2. Although I haven’t tested it myself, I see no foreseeable problems with using that plugin.
  3. Yes, I have buyers using this theme from all over the world. Currency can be changed easily via the admin options panel.

oh and can a property have more than one image?

contempoinc

Yes, you can have as many as you like.

This is gorgeous. I’ve purchased RE3 , but I can see where this one may work even better for me. Here’s what I have in mind; is it something you can help me make to happen?

- the front page search would tie in to IDXExpress to search for individual MLS listings

- a separate map page/section would tie to featured listings for new home neighborhoods (I work primarily new construction sales), pulling from the wordpress data.

I was about to start loading neighborhoods into RE 3 , but if I can do both neighborhoods (mapped) and listings (search), that would be ideal. Is there any way to do this sort of combined approach?

Thanks!

Thanks for your previous purchase. All those things are definitely possible, however I’m currently booked up for the next 6+ months, however I can recommend my colleague Justin Shattuck and his team at Just The Web. They’re well versed in WordPress and they know my themes inside and out — been working with them for years.

Is there any already-documented way to link your form (your design) to the IDX , rather than using their widget?

contempoinc

Sorry there isn’t as this falls under the customization side of things. If you need assistance I’m currently booked up for the next 6+ months, however I can recommend my colleague Justin Shattuck and his team at Just The Web.

Hi,

Any plans to add a sort by feature (Price/Taxonomy – Ascending/Descending) to the search results page? Quite essential in my opinion.

Cheers, Thomas

All right, I dropped them an email!

Is sorting only by price DESC as default sort order by any chance easier to accomplish…?

contempoinc

Unfortunately there’s no real “easy” way to go about adding that feature.

Nice template!

Two questions, when I create a new list-property and introduce an image, the image appears in duplicate.

How can you translate the words that appear in the pop-up with the direction of the property?.

Thanks!

contempoinc
  1. Don’t click the “Insert into post” button and you’ll be good to go.
  2. You’ll need to go into js > mapping.js
xoserra Purchased

I only click the image icon next Upload/Insert, as mentioned in the documentation. I don`t click the “insert into post”

contempoinc

Right, then upload your images and you’ll be good to go.

This really is a gorgeous template…how often do you come out with new versions and do you continue to update older versions (ie I noticed you’re on version 4 now)? If I buy this theme I want to know it will be good for years to come as WordPress is updated?

contempoinc

Thanks! I continue to update the other themes as well

Quick one, how can i make a new blog page then have all of the new posts go to that page, usually when i create a site and use a theme i can just change the static page to blog and direct to my blog page but nothing seems to be working properly when i do that with this theme. it seems there is a simple fix as to where it points to. Please let me know, thank you.

I’m looking to do an all-in-one site for a client that would combine all of the following on to one site, including: - new home building information (would need to upload floorplans, pricing, amenities information) - buying/selling real estate (MLS listings using IDX PlugIn for Wordpress - rental listings (separately entered on WordPress Admin)

I’m wondering if your theme would be able to handle all of this – and be able to enter the different property types (new homes with floorplans, import from RMLS , rentals) and such?

Do you have any clients who’ve done similar things with your themes or have examples?

Sorry for the lengthy questionnaire…just want to make sure I have my ducks in a row before purchasing! Thanks for your time!!!

contempoinc

Absolutely, you can do all of those things although the for MLS /IDX I’ve had many buyers use the http://dsIDXpress.com plugin.

Unfortunately I don’t have any examples available, sorry.

hi, I bought this theme but I must say I am having a hard time with it, especially the lack of documentation. I followed the one page documentation on setting it up, however if you view our site: http://orlandoregionhousesales.com

You will see that the featured listings on the homepage will not work? We created a category called featured andthe listing was marked as featured, yet the featured section will not activate?

Please help!

contempoinc

Make sure you’ve added the Featured tag under the Status taxonomy, as seen in the demo content.

bluclay Purchased

Can you please tell me how to make the logo center and the menu below the header or do I have to open a ticket for that?

Thanks so much.

We are considering buying this theme and our programmers are curious about integration. How much customization is required to make the IDX plugin work? Also, for featured properties (for the homepage) or which listings are showing (e.g. this weekend), does the user have to touch every such listing – after it pulls from the MLS database – or enter each featured listing/showing listing by hand?

Also, we can’t read the knowledge base without buying the theme? Is that correct? We’d really like to see the discussion and other people’s issues so we can read how they’re resolved. Possible?

Thank you – it’s a beautiful theme.

contempoinc

Listings are entered manually through the WordPress admin, I’ve had many buyers use the http://dsIDXpress.com plugin for IDX /MLS integration. Its fairly easy to implement.

Yes, you need to purchase the theme to gain access to the knowledgebase and support site.

We are going to buy the IDX plugin you note above. My question really is about how to use it. I assume that listings are pulled via the plugin. I just didn’t know how a user THEN marks one of them “featured” for the homepage slideshow or homepage display. In other words, if you use the dsIDX plugin, you don’t enter your listings through the WP admin, right? (If that’s not right, then I need to regroup.)

But you have to tell WP which one is “featured.” I just wanted to know how that works, using the dsIDX plugin, and you’re not entering the listings manually.

contempoinc

If you’re using the plugin you can pull listings from the MLS and you can also enter them manually. I haven’t personally implemented it so I can’t really go into anymore detail, unfortunately.

The featured listings are listings that have been tag with Featured under the Status taxonomy.

Salut,

I’m interested in buying your theme but I’d like to know more about :

1- map features - is it possible to add informations to the map such as schools, averate price per sq mt, ...? - How does a property is displayed on the map if the address is incomplete (only the city is filled in for example)? - How does it show on the map when several flats are for sale in the same building ?

2 – Property listing Is it possible to import a formatted text file or is it one by one ?

Thanks in advance for your answer and bravo for your work

contempoinc
  1. Yes, although this would require some modification. It uses Googles v3 Mapping API so if an address is incomplete it would display just like you would see at (maps.google.com). If you have several flats in the same building the pins would be located very close to each other, there’s also an option to use lat/long.
  2. Yes, but you would need to use a plugin for that functionality.

Thanks!

Hi: Purchased this & did basic install. You say in promo page “install in minutes” So, can you point me to a pdf or video so I can easily set up my install to stat my looking exactly like your demo at: http://themes.contempographicdesign.com/?theme=realestate4

My blog is at: http://www.sandiegorealestatelibrary.info/

Thanks

contempoinc

There’s a link to the installation docs via WP Pro Real Estate 4 Options > Documentation (in the header)

Hi, please let me know how to get rid of the lower left section with the subject title: (this can also be seen on the demo site) Why Choose Us?

I have used the 3 column widget but it does not replace that, I have searched everywhere and do not understand why it is so hard to figure out how to replace it!

Thanks

contempoinc

You can turn off the three column widget area via the Homepage tab in the admin options panel, or you can add widgets to the area via Widgets > Homepage Three Column

The demo is not working, page error is server cannot be found

contempoinc

Try again I just verified its up.

Question: My ISP provides us with WP v 3.1 installation. Could this template run on WP 3 .1 without serious problems?

contempoinc

I’d recommend installation the latest version of WordPress, but yes it will work on 3.1

Just bought the theme installed it and beginning to get an understanding on the functionality. So far you certainly have added the WOW factor! Having fun. :sunglasses:

Quick question in the Admin in the Real Estate4 options area under the Create a skin tab

I am trying to set the bg image to one of the background images of yours. However, in the Enable Background image below check box selecting any of the images does not render after refreshing my browser. Any ideas?
contempoinc

Thanks for your purchase. add #fff to the Background Color field then choose your bg image and you’ll be good to go.
