This April has been all about real estate themes. Two weeks ago we released Realtr, a fresh new take on the real estate market with awesome looks and even better features. Today we’re releasing a big upgrade for Real Estate, our first real estate theme.
People that liked original Real Estate design will be extremely happy to know that design has stayed pretty much the same in Real Estate 2. Our development team focused exclusively on the back-end. This enabled them to include awesome features like…
Category listings with a twist
Category listing pages have a nifty little switcher that when pressed changes the listing view. The best part here is that it contains a Map view so your visitors can easily see where are those properties located. Real Estate 2 also comes with an all-new page template for showing your properties on a Google Map. There is a special section in theme options for managing this map. You can choose whether to show all listings or set a fixed scaling factor (zoom), among other things.
Custom fields | Custom search
With custom fields you’re given the tools to quickly and painlessly populate your property submission form with new input fields. What’s more, every custom field you create can be auto-magically included in the homepage search form. Existing fields inside the form are also listed in the back-end so you can disable or edit them at any time. To see how easy it is to change an existing field watch the overview video below.
Unlike the original Real Estate theme that allowed you to create only two different payment plans now you can create as many as the heart desires. On top of that price packages enable you to create category-specific and even recurring payment options.
Other improvements/features inside Real Estate 2:
- Custom post type for properties
- Five unique skins
- Bulk Upload and Export for both posts and properties
- Sleek back-end with tons of new options
- User profile fields
- IDX/MLS compatibility using dsIDXpress plugin
