Will this work for bigger companies with multiple agents?

Absolutely, Easy Property Listings is built from the ground up for scale, speed and thousands of listings. When you want dynamic agent and staff profiles we recommend the Staff/Agent Directory extension. This allows you to quickly set-up multiple agent and staff members and automatically display all the agents listings, post activity and use a featured image instead of the default Gravatar.

We want to display less or more info on the archive and single listing views, how can we create a unique customised look?

You can use the Easy Property Listings template loading system that lets you place all the plugin templates inside themes/YOUR_THEME/easypropertylistings/ folder and edit everything. You can read more about how to do that here.

No advanced coding knowledge needed, activate the property types and add listings, so no matter your experience it will work for you.

How do I Show My List of Listings?

The easiest way to display the archive page for your listing:

Yes! Simply go to Tools > Import and install the WordPress Importer, then navigate to wp-content/plugins/easy-property-listing/assets/ and select the sample-property-import.xml file. This will create several sample properties for you, make sure the “property” type is activated.

Reviews

excellent support, complex plugin

A robust plugin with lots of options, you need to know some code to create exactly what you need but with basic knowledge and great support you could do a LOT with this plugin.

Great product & excellent support

This is a great product that was really easy to install and customise. There’s an excellent knowledge base to get you going and the support staff (Merv especially) are sooo very helpful when you get stuck (user error)! I highly recommend this product and the people behind it!

Business Directory Easy Property Listing

Here is an analogy. I buy a new car, not a used car… I believe all the parts on the car will work when I pay for it in cash. Then I find out the air conditioner does not work. So I contact the Sales person and ask for support. He says, well we were still working on that when we sold it to you. I say, wait, you said it would work. Then the salesman says. Well we have been busy working on more important functions of the automobile. So, I make a comment like. How could you advertise the car has air-conditioning when you know it did not work. “Well its in the car but we have not had time to work on it because we have other priorities” I state: “YOU WERE GOOD AT TAKING MY MONEY…but slow to make my air-condition work!” And the reply is. “I take offense to that!”

Really?

A Solid Plug-In but not easy unless you know PHP

After struggling to get this plugin to format properly with Theme X we have finally made some progress. Because EPL uses custom pages you either need to be using one of their supported themes OR you need to install to PHP files into your theme that may or may not work out of the box and might require customizations.

Merv and his team are there for support but you need to have a little patience as they are a small group and being in Australia verse here in the states does ad a bit of a challenge. That said, Merv’s heart is in the right place, he wants you to be happy and will do what he can to get you going.

Awesome Support

These guys provided me with amazing support throughout the project. No question was too hard and I totally appreciate all the support I was given. Great product – very sophisticated. Jenny Power, Webtree Canberra
