I´ve installed the very popular ´All In One Seo´ plug in, but google doesn´t seem to be reading from it. Any ideas why it isn´t working? Is there something obvious I´m missing?
Realise it´s a plug-in, but would appreciate some help on what is probably a very simple issue.
Sorry I can’t provide support for a third-party plugin, but I’d recommend contacting the developer directly they’ll be able to help you out. http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/all-in-one-seo-pack
If there is known compatibility issue with ´All In One Seo´ can you recommend another plug-in…
No known issues, but there’s also http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo/
Hi there, it´s still not working correctly. Surely it must be essential that either ´All In One´ or ´Yoast´ work perfectly with the theme? Really need your help here.
Is there any way to make it so that the homepage map shows pins by address and postcode.
i.e a pin at number 4 and number 50 on the same road may be in different areas, but have the same postcode.
Also having great problems with the photo gallery on each listing. I’ve uploaded a few photos that I want in the text, but not the gallery. Is it possible to only have some photos in the gallery?
Both of these are real problems and holding back my website launch.
You can have pins all over the world if you like, displaying on the homepage. Any images uploaded to that listing directly will be displayed in the slider. So I’d suggest uploading images via Media > Add new then inserting them into the body area.
Your plugins will not install.
Please advise how to install. It won’t let me re-install the program so I’m dead in the water.
I’m guessing you either purchase RE4 or 5 as RE3 doesn’t come with any plugins that need to be installed.
Once installed > activate > and click the Dismiss link in the notice.
i have re5. it will not install the plugins that are required. I don’t have any other plugins installed from any other themes. when I click ‘dismiss’, it still won’t allow the installation of plugins. This program needs help.
It definitely works, trust me. The plugins are already installed go into Plugins find each one and Activate > then Dismiss the notice and you’ll be good to go.
The plug ins will not activate no matter what I do, so the dismiss is irrelevant. I sentCchris my login info so he can fix the problem. But, I’m running out of time and patience. This should be simple and it’s turned into a nightmare.
Did you open a support ticket? (btw this is Chris, I’m a one man band)
twice. I also responded to the email you sent this morning offering to fix the problem if I sent you my user name and login info, which I did. You said something about a blueprint plugin that I don’t have. I’ll open another ticket. When I open a ticket, once the question is answered it automatically closes the ticket so I have to reopen another.
Open a ticket with this specific issue and I’ll take a look. I’m working through all the other tickets as you can imagine I receive quite a few. Thanks for your patience.
I sent the ftp info over a few hours ago on a ticket.
I replied I also need your FTP password. Please reply to the ticket.
I did. it kicked the email back to me.
I also forerwarded it to your email address. when i opened the plugin file in hostgator it looks like the plugins are for a MAC. Does that make a difference?
Chris, I’ve spent two full days trying to get this to work. How about a refund? The plugins arene’t working and I have to get my website going this week.
I’ve replied to your emails and tickets, with a solution offering to install the plugins for you via FTP as your write permissions on your plugin folder won’t allow for them to be installed automatically. If you have already please respond to the ticket you forgot to include your FTP password. Once I get that you’ll be all set.
For future please keep all support requests in one spot, no reason to be replying here, email and my support site.
I sent you thee messasges with my password and login information. One through your personal email, one as a rply to the do not reply email and one on the trouble ticket on your site. I really ddin’t want to post my account information on the web (this site).
I hired someone to fix it. He created a new folder; wp-plugins via my ftp and installed them there. There was no folder for the plugins at all, even though I uninstalled and reinstalled the theme.
That’s because the plugins folder is a default Wordpress core folder and isn’t part of the theme. Your WP install was incomplete, glad you got it sorted.
Thank you for clearing that up. Will you post the link for your tutorials for designing a site? I’ve watched the videos but can’t figure out iif you strictly used the wp pre real estate options or the aqua builder to build something similar to your demonstation.
Thank you again.
more specifically, when I go to the homepage, it says ‘layout manager’ and to drag and drop the page in any configuration, but there’s nothing there to drag and drop. Same problem with Listings search field manager. Is there something else I need to do to activate these so the boxes for dragging show up? Or, it is a wordpress problem?
Just the theme itself and the default options, the page builder was only used for the Accordions, Toggles and Tabs page http://wp.contempographicdesign.com/wp_real_estate_5/?page_id=542
do I need to install the shortcodes in order to find the accordians, toggles, and tags and the drag and drop boxes that you show on your demonstration in order to make a layout that looks like your demo?
WOW!!! Now it looks right!! I reset the default options and everything looks just like your demo (without the pictures and all the pretty stuff). THANKS A MILLION!!!!
No probs, glad you got it sorted. Thanks for your purchase!
Can you tell me how I can allow EDITORS to be able to edit the menu and widgets, but not have access to the themeoptions…. I know I need to add code to the Functions.php, but I don´t know exactly which files to target.
Also, how can I re-order the ´property type´ options in the main search dropdown. Currently it´s alphabetical, but I need to change it.
I’d recommend using a plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/membership/
All of the search options use the same select dropdown function so re-ordering just one wouldn’t be possible it would re-order all of them. You would need to create another function just for property type and do a few other modifications. Unfortunately this isn’t something easily explained, if you require assistance with the customizations, I’d highly recommend Tweaky I send all my buyers to them, they’re well versed in WordPress and very reasonably priced with a quick turnaround.
So it wouldn´t be possible to re-order
This is obviously important, because you need your most popular property type at the top.
It is possible but you’ll need to make some modifications in order to get that type of functionality.
Do you know of any plug ins that could work? I´ve seen category order and Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order, but they don´t seem to apply for these custom categories.
Plug in- ´Custom Taxonomy Sort´ I don´t know why you can´t put a bit more effort in with your clients. Especially with something so obvious, that should have the abilty to be sorted anyway.
Or do you want people to pay for money for modifications that are relatively simple?
That’s not my intentions at all, its not a basic customization you’ll need to copy the ct_search_form_select function in admin > theme-functions.php > modify it just for your property_type field and add the ordering in.
I’m not familiar with that plugin or its functionality but you could give it a shot.
My support only covers theme setup, and questions it doesn’t cover customizations otherwise I’d be running myself outta business working for free. When it comes to modifying files I can only point you in the right direction, I hope you understand.
Does this have the ability to have users post properties from the frontend?
Not out of the box, but there are many front end posting plugins you could use to achieve that functionality.
The demo is not working.

Sorry to use some of your time, but we’re considering purchasing this theme for a client…I’ve searched here, but could not find answers we need.
Our IDX provider uses RETS, will this theme function with it?
I haven’t personally implemented RETS, but I do have many buyers using the http://dsIDXpress.com plugin for IDX/MLS integration. Also found http://wordpress.org/plugins/displetreader-wordpress-plugin/ which uses RETS.
Hello, I really like this theme and want to use it for my client. Unfortunately, dsIDXpress does not access my clients MLS. Will your theme work with the WordPress IDX Plugin found here? http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-idx/
Does the main map populate with IDX listings from the dsIDXpress plugin, or is the map strictly frontend/backend submission? Could you pull off a mod that would replace the main map with the auto-populated map from either Diverse Solutions’s dsIDXpress plugin or possibly their larger mapping IDX search service? ...either by swapping the maps….or by replacing the existing map with a box (or slider?) where the mapping idx search map code can be embedded?
The main map is strictly listings entered through the admin. The mapping for the IDX can be seen here. However anything is possible you could pull both IDX and manual listings into the homepage map, although it would require modifications.
Since you know this theme inside & out, would it be possible to pay you to do a mod like this? Thanks!
If you require assistance with the customizations, I’d highly recommend Tweaky I send all my buyers to them, they’re well versed in WordPress and very reasonably priced with a quick turnaround.
Under Find your new home,
Can i change the “state” to district instead?
I understand that “city” + “state” + “zipcode” are used to populate google map location.
Would it be possible to use only city and zipode?
Yes, go into realestate_3 > admin > custom-taxonomies.php > lines 175-188 only and includes > advanced-search.php > line 29
pre sales question: my client is concerned with the mouse scroll zooming the map in and out as opposed to scrolling the page up and down. Is there an option to disable the scrolling activating zoom on the homepage?
Yes, the scroll wheel can be disabled via one line of code. I can provide the updated file when you purchase.
Is it possible to create a Contact Form Widget so that we can add it to the side bar?
Yes, one is already included view one of the listings you’ll see it in the sidebar.
That widget only works for the Listing page. If I add the widget to the Sidebar Page, the widget would appear but throws an error when I try to send a message.
That’s because it relies on listing information to work, like agent name, address, etc…
If you need a normal form I suggest using a plugin like http://www.gravityforms.com/
Question about Featured listing so that they show on the Homepage Map.
When adding ‘Featured’ to the Status, it switches into a ‘Featured @en’. No matter how often I go back to change it, it appends the ’@en’ to the end of it. Because of this, I can’t make the listing shown on the Homepage Map.
That has something to do with whatever language plugin you’re using, disable. You’ll need to disable that.
I’m using WPML Multilingual CMS. Since the template WPML compatible, I have to use that particular plugin otherwise I cannot display the listing in another language. Is there away to add another variable in the code so that I can get it to be Featured on the Homepage Map for another language?
I’ve never seen that plugin do that, try to manually change the slug to featured and test.
I changed the slug to ‘Featured’ and clicked Update. The list auto update the Status to be: ‘Featured @en’. Were you able to have it set up so that a listing can be shown on both languages? Or, if you can show me how to hard-code the term ‘Featured @en’ into the code so that it works, I’m okay with that too.
Okay, what I found out is that: When using multilingual, the slug will get auto-populated with the language next to its name. For example, if I use Spanish as the primary language and English as the secondary, my main slug will be: ‘featured’. And for my English translation, the system will set my slug to be: ‘featured-en’. And there is no way that I can set the second language to be ‘featured’ as it was already taken by the primary language.
The WPML plugin will add ‘featured’ plus ’-<whatever-language>’ after the slug. So, if I have English as my primary language, the ‘feature’ slug will work just fine, but my secondary language will have a: ‘featured-es’, which won’t work for the Homepage Map for Spanish. You gotta find a way to fix this. May be you can offer a patch so that we can use different variation for the status such as: ‘featured, featured-en, featured-es, featured-otherlanguage’.
Let me know if I was able to make it clear about the problem.
You can modify the query in includes > featured-listings.php > to include your other slugs. See this example, replace the slugs with yours on line 19 http://pastie.org/private/odjlw3vxyi4io3jcixyp9q
I can’t find “featured-listings.php” in the “includes” folder.
Sorry, wrong theme — index.php > line 33 > replace with ‘ct_status’ => ‘featured, featured-en, featured-sp’,
Thanks! Best Customer Service right here! ^
No probs, thanks for your purchase!
Can this theme be translated totally in spanish? Let me know, thanks.
Yes, its fully localized and ready for translation. Its also compatible the wpml.org plugin.
Do the IDX listings show on the header map?
No, those are only featured listings the IDX plugin unfortunately doesn’t have a way to mark listings “featured” etc, as they’re automatically pulled from the MLS although they do have a map display as you can see on the IDX page in the demo.
Hello, in the search page it only shows the searched property in the map, below the map all the listings show up, I don’t know what’s wrong www.vendoinmobiliaria.com.mx
The map will only show the searched listing displayed on that first page, once you go to the second it will display those listings, and so on…
yeah but the list won’t show the searched properties
Looks like you might have done some modifications to the search possibly added some new fields or taxonomies. If you have you need to make sure and modify the array in search-listings.php to reflect those fields you modified or added otherwise they won’t be searched on.
I uploaded the original advanced-search.php search-listings.php and custom-taxonomies.php files and it is still the same
Then I’d recommend uploading the latest original theme files in its entirety, something is a miss in your files.
I have have trouble finding “responsive” themes having a readable menu bar. I looked at 2 sites that used this theme. One switched to a mobile mode (m in front of url) the other inserted a navigation search box. Which is the method it is programmed to use???
It’s a responsive design so it doesn’t use a sub domain, you can view the demo at http://wp.contempographicdesign.com/wp_real_estate_4 resize your browser down and you’ll see the nav working.
I have another question too. I want to use the site for I non real estate business. I need a simple search (not IDX) does the theme have a built-in simple way to search without having to buy one?
Yes, the main search on the homepage searches on listings & criteria added through the WordPress admin. No need for a plugin, its all built into the theme. The IDX is a seperate optional plugin you can add its not required in any way.
Sorry for all the questions; Regarding Price… Can I have a Range Not a set price on the listing? Mine will be venues and the prices vary.
Yes, with a simple modification to the price field type.
We have a real estate agency for short period rental.
Is it possible to edit the filter search and therefore the page creating the new properties ?
One of the most important option to filter for our users, is to the select the “availability period” for an an apartment to rent:
- “Available from …. to …”
- “available within one week/month”...
Definitely you can add as many search items as you like however it requires digging into some code.
Use, by you or one client, in a single end product which end users are not charged for. The total price includes the item price and a buyer fee.
